So my tea/coffee addiction has finally been taking to a new level with my purchasing of the TASSIMO T40. It was really easy to set up, i read through the instructions literally once and bobs your uncle, you had to run water through it once just to filter it and then it was ready for use.


The ‘pods’ you put in it you can buy from most supermarkets and run from about £3.69 to about £5. When you buy the Tassimo machine you get £20 free to spend on the website, with £25 minimum spend and then £5 postage and packing, with i think isn’t to shabby and we’ve got a large order on the way.

We bought some pods to keep us going we got some costa americano ones, which were nice although a bit bitter when it came to the last drop. We also bought some cappacino ones today..
They come with a milk pod and then the espresso pod. Haven’t tryed these yet to do not have a verdict. Im looking to get a stand to hold the pod that will fit neatly in the kitchen. They run about £15-£30 depented on how many pods they hold.

I love my coffee machine so far and look forward to using it till the cows come home.. MOO

So im not even 18 yet but already throughout my life iv had a constant battle with myself over my weight and the way i look. When i was younger i was never horribly fat or over weight, i guess i just had ‘chubby’ periods and many children probably do. So this has carried on till now, i am always aware of my body and my weight because of the profession iv been training for (musical theatre, performance etc) because its all about how you look really. I consider myself to be on a constant diet really with days where i ‘cheat’ and eat WHATEVER i want. I exercise alot i dance nearly everyday and also recently, id say in the past year i have been going out for runs maybe 2-4 a week. This has caused changes in my body, some i like, some… not so much. I also do alot of exercise videos & DVDS. I guess i consider myself to be pretty healthy.

So normally i don’t really do the ‘Lent’ thing. This year though with me having a year out, setting projects & challenges for myself etc. i decided i would set myself the challenge and see how well my willpower lasted.
So heres the list of foods i decided to give up:
Chocolate (standard lent item)
White Bread
Cakes & Cookies

Why these i hear you ask!? well i looked at it as giving up things i eat to much of when i have ‘cheat days’ that i suppose i kind of binge out on. So for the first two weeks it went really well and i managed to with stand the cravings, although to be honest i didn’t really have that many. Seen as most of the things i cut out were sweet i did begin to have sweet cravings so i decided that i would allow myself to have sweets just not chocolate. BUT malteser bunnies arrived in shops… i couldnt control myself and i had to have one! i felt very ashamed, BUT this is the only thing iv had like the ONLY thing.

I therefore i have survived and i have really felt the benefits. I have lost weight and my skin has gone much better from not eating chocolate. Now even when im given the chance to have any of these i have stayed away. I see this as a step forward in my healthy lifestyle and i hope no i WILL keep it up… with the occasional malteser bunny 😉

Hope – Wish – Dream

For as long as I remember me and my parents have gone to America for holidays (more specifically Walt Disney World), it really is my favourite place in the world. I’m not joking all I think about is going backto America. We were actually going to emergrate when I was about 7, but it never came off. Needless to say now I’m older I’m definitely upset about that. IMG_0874

Going to America has definitely influenced what I want to do this year and also well with my life. I’m a musical theatre student so working at disney as a character performer is something that I want to do this is obviously influenced by the constant holidays to the US. To work in the US however I’m going I need a work permit and to actually live over there first. For this I need money, so I will new to spend a lot of this year working to get money to be able to fullfill this dream. I think I would enjoy being an air hostess, although this is a very hard job to get into these days. I know You can do seasonal work with some airlines over here that I’m going to look in to.

If all this falls into fruition I have dance to fall back on. I know I would also enjoy teaching dance even though this is not ULTIMATELY what I want to do. I will need to get my teaching quals which I am already working towards. Something I think would be good to have aswell is Zumba quals and also boqwa which is a new craze going around. I would probs teach this on the side to gain extra income.

So im thinking about this because really i don’t no whether i want to be in another 3 years of training if my hearts not fully in it. Don’t get me wrong i love musical theatre, and i love doing shows i just .. well basically .. i don’t no, i just want to know what else is out there really and see what i can do. I don’t want to feel like iv missed out on what the world has to offer.

Bridging the Gap

So here goes…! A start to my blogging journey. Hi guys! My name is anna I live in Manchester, England have done for the whole 18 years of my life. I am a musical theatre student and love it with a whole lot of my heart. At this time in my life I am coming to the end of my two year course at Pendleton college and can honestly say its been the most enjoyable two years I think I can say of my life! Iv meet some great people that I know I will stay in touch with for life.

So this year iv been auditioning for all the big drama schools that are mostly situated in London, unfortunately with no success. They are so hard to get into, you just have to be what there looking for. So what are you going to do now, I hear you say? Well this is we’re the blog comes in… I don’t no. There are so many things I want to do and experience I just don’t no where to start. ( ill probably make another blog post about my aims and wishes after this first initial one) its safe to say there some pretty big wishes though..!

So I plan to keep this blog as a kind of following me and what adventures I encounter on this unplanned year out! Enjoy!
