OF BISCUITS, TV SHOWS AND SUNDAYS

ON A SUNDAY…

HI Beauts!

So, what am I always up to on a Sunday? First of all my Sundays are always different *ish* but they are also a lot similar in most ways. I want you guys to get to know more about the girl behind the blog so keep on reading this tale on how I spend my Sundays.
On a Sunday, I usually take a break from studying, writing essays and all Uni related stuff [that is, if I don’t have a lot of work to get done]. Although some peoples’ Sundays might consist of maybe food shopping for the week, clothes shopping with friends, or doing home chores [Just a guess haha]. For me, it is TV Show binge watching day [this should be a holiday... just saying lol] because my plan is to stay in bed all day, every day! I am not moving an inch from my bed lol. 
During autumn time, I tend to watch Tv series that has a little bit of spooky-ness and drama. It just gives me that Halloween (and winter is coming) vibes, for example I like watching/re-watching shows like,

1.      Teen Wolf
2.      PLL
3.      How to get away with murder
4.      Orphan Black
5.      Desperate Housewives
6.      Devious Maids
And so on.
My sister is actually making me watch Game of Thrones at the moment, so I am kind of getting into that as well. Any GOT fans out here? Let me know in the comments! 



Let me know in the comment section if there are shows similar to these ones, that I need to check out. I am always down to discovering new epic shows.

Also whenever I am watching any of these shows I always like to snack on anything that I find in my snack cupboard. I always stock up this cupboard with sweets and biscuits like,

1.      Skittles
2.      Ginger biscuits
3.      Sweet and salty popcorn
4.      Digestives biscuits
5.      Rich tea biscuits
6.      Short bread fingers.
Etc.

I was actually having these biscuits the other day and they taste sooooo good! I haven't really had this type of biscuits in ages! I am so into ginger biscuits now but I am definitely going to start eating more of these ones. YUM! They have that crunchy texture that you always want in biscuits, and what made them even taste more scrumptious is having them with lemon and ginger tea. Try it and you' ll see what I mean!
I always have to have something to eat when I am watching a TV show. If I don’t have at least one snack, I won’t enjoy what I am watching lol. SO snacks are key in my book. What is your take on this?

P.S This biscuits are all independent brand and owned by CostCutter. If you are looking to get these scrumptious biscuits, head over to CostCutter to purchase them. 

Hope you guys got to know me a little more haha.
I actually enjoyed writing this, I think I will be sharing more of this 'about me' mini tales in the future.

Anyways babes,

Until next time! Xo

UNI-LIFE UPDATE & LUNCH SNACKS || JIMJAMS SPREAD Ft BANANAS

Hey beauts!

How has your week been?

I have been reading, studying, exercising, and food shopping, and going to lectures so nothing fun on my part ha ha #studentlife.
I think it has finally hit me that I am in 3rd year! I can’t even explain to you how anxious you get when you know you are now a finalist at University, and it’s just few months left to getting your degree. These few days has been alright considering we already have a lot to do in terms of starting dissertations, reading for assignments and so much more. 

Anyways let me not bore you ha ha. Hopefully, I will do a post on third year experience in the summer and spill all the gist on there, but for now let’s get into today’s post which involves Jimjams Spread Ft Bananas!


Every time I am reading or studying at Uni, I just always want something sweet to snack on. It gets me through it all I must say. Although sometimes eating sweets/chocolates is amazing, the sugar intake is just ridiculous! Thank God I finally found something that is not only healthy, delicious but also better than the sweets and the chocolates I consume daily, which is JIMJAMS spreads!



The Jimjams spreads comes in different flavours, milk chocolate, black currant jams, raspberry jams, hazelnut chocolate and so on. These spreads have 83% less of sugar and contains ingredients like, maltitol (contains fewer calories than sugar), natural flavouring, fat reduced cocoa and so on. The best place to get this is at Tesco supermarket or Holland&Barrett! I don’t know if there is any other places to get them but I would check their website and social media channels to see if there's any more information there. Links are down below! 



I am definitely going to use these spreads in future baking recipes, and of course I will share it on here for you guys to see and maybe try? Jim Jams spread also provided me with a recipe book and I think I am allowed to share atleast one recipe with you guys! [For more recipes, visit their website] The one I definitely want to make is the choccie & banana wrap recipe. It looks and sounds so yummy! Eating it with banana for a lunch snack this afternoon was so scrumptious, I just wanted to finish the jar all at once! NO JOKE.

The recipe from the book is as follows,

Ingredients
4Tbsps. Jimjams Hazelnut or milk chocolate spread. 2 Tortillas. 1 Banana

Method
- Spread two tablespoons of jimjams on each tortilla.
- Peel the banana & slice in half-length ways. Place on the edge of the tortilla.
- Roll the tortilla up from the side with the banana.

And there you have it! Choccie & banana wrap of goodness!
