"Since I started blogging, there’s one question I’ve consistently been asked more than any other: how I got my flexible, work from home job..." NEW ON THE BLOG: finding accessible work with a chronic illness! In case you missed the livestream, there’s a post up now with loads of links and info for schemes, mentoring and opportunities that you might find helpful. I did throw it together on a time crunch and want to go back and keep adding to it, so if there are any other useful opportunities or resources you think should be on there, please do let me know- really hope it helps those who are currently looking!
I’m not even sure how this became a meal but it’s just what I wanted. Spaghetti cooked in stocks(f), mixed with broccoli(s), 3tbl spoons of @crucial_sauce
yoghurt and mint (The amount made was separated into 3 meals so 1tbl=3syns per serving) on a bed of spinach(s) with thinly grated light cheese (HExB) so simple, low Syn, on plan, has speed and tastes incredible! 🥦🥗🧀
I’ve had the most amazing weekend and to top it off my best friend asked me to marry him! ❤️💍
New blog post about how I wear my summer dresses like this one in Autumn 🍂 (link in bio). Hope everyone’s having a relaxing Sunday.
Can we all agree that Matt takes pretty damn good pictures? We walked around town for a little while last night just as the sun was setting and we got some truly lovely pictures, I can’t wait to show you all in the coming weeks 🌅
Food prep and lunch! Butternut squash speedy soup with 0% fat Greek yoghurt
On plan breakfast. Fatless bacon(f), poached eggs(p), HExB, tomatoes(s) and Syn tree bbq sauce 😍
Doing what we do best in London...
Had a lovely weekend in Brum with friends from home and topping off the visit with brunch at Clerkenwell Grind in the capital ▪️ where to go next?
Farmer Copley’s did not disappoint! Have you gone pumpkin picking yet??
You’ve gotta pick a pumpkin or 2!
My lot want to go pick some carving pumpkins today, so who am I to argue?The pumpkin obsession is real! When Dougie gets back from his trip I’m hoping he won’t notice them all and they will just blend into the house 😆
I’m on a Buying Clothes Ban until Christmas but the t&cs don’t include necklaces or giant Zara blanket scarves. Who knew?!
Sometimes all you need is a walk in the sunshine with special friends 💕
So, after being hungover and not being able to handle food all day at gone midnight I finally felt human enough to enjoy some cereal! I’ve been dreaming of the crunchy nut chocolate cluster ones all day! 😍 finally go to make them, no! Nothing! Just plain old bran flakes... so I threw in my healthy a(a mix of alpro hazelnut and alpro chocolate milk) a chopped up banana(f) oh and a handful of chocolate peanuts (syns - don’t know, don’t care.) 🥜🤫🙈 on that note - goodnight 😂😅
A little lite - but, yesterday’s weight in was a LOSS!! I was crossing my fingers to scrape a maintain so a loss was amazing! Slowly but surely it’s coming off! Only 3.5lb left to get to my first stone award since starting back! Surely by November! 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼
Spiced pumpkin and apple soup recipe on the blog. It’s not mine, it’s from a book but I made it the other day and It was so seasonal and easy I thought I’d take some photos and share it 😊
Wishing everyone a great Saturday night and a lovely slow Sunday to follow ❤️ Link in bio.
Busy day today - gym, work & family time but always find time for a relaxing lunch at @theharrogatetearooms
especially when accompanied with Yorkshire Tea in a vintage cup ❤️
This popped up on my memories 🙄🙈 still a distance from where I want to be. But, a lot closer than where I started!
3syns for the Yorkshire pudding and mint sauce and plenty of veggies for lunch yesterday. No breakfast or tea, but a boat load of pink gin for dessert 💁🏼♀️🙈
It’s the freakin’ weekend baby I’m about to have me some brunch. 🙌🏻🥞 I wish I could eat breakfast at @gronlds
every day. These vegan apple, berry and cinnamon pancakes were to die for, as was the hot chocolate and iced tea. One to try soon @leedsbrunchclub
I feel like a lil’ angel in this dress 🌟 // I’ve had this for ages (I actually used this as a top to interview in a few months back!) but it doubles as a cute dress too 💖 #fblogger #asseenonme #zara
Oh you guys, life has been testing me this week but we made it to Friday in one piece and the party starts HERE. And by party I mean old pyjamas, decaf tea and Extra Slice on low volume because I’m one wild gal who cannot be tamed.
How was your week? So lovely to hear some of you are up for a livestream chat tomorrow, details are in my last post. Got a fair few exciting employment opportunities to share with you all! 🙊✨
Today marks two years since I first started the I’m Just A Girl blog and I can safely say it’s been the best two years full of amazing opportunities and so much happiness 💕Whether you just follow me on Instagram, or you’ve been a long time reader of my blog, I’m so immensely grateful to each and every one of you ❤️Have an amazing weekend and let me know what you’re up to in the comments! ✨
Happy Friday everyone. Hope you all have a wonderful day. It’s a big day for me with lots going on, so first it’s a walk with George for some calming fresh air. Lots of love 😘
