Why I'm marrying my ex husband

You know that song "Happy"?  It starts with, "It might seem crazy what I'm about to say."

8 years ago today I married my very best friend.  The man I felt comfortable/happy/inlovewith/overjoyed to spend the rest of my life with.

Sadly there was a blip.  I cried my eyes out as I drove to the court for our divorce.  Things were pretty terrible at that time.

Yet, that's the past.  Things happen for a reason.  We are stronger now than ever and we have needed our time apart.  Without that time apart who knows where we would have been...

Scott is my very best friend and to feel confident enough to share on my blog that we are so happy together once again is such a heart warming feeling.
We do not want to grow old without each other.  That's as simply as I can put it into words. 
He's there for me. I'm there for him.  We have our health challenges yet we still laugh together every day.  

In 4 weeks we hope to have clearance to fly.  We will be going to Jamaica to get married barefoot on the sand on the shoreline at sunset.  

Feeling very blessed and loved.

Visiting the Youtube space, London

Talking cameras.

Dslr then video cameras....that bit I could understand.  The rest, I was lost.  Yet I did enjoy visiting the Youtube Space.  What an honour.

As creators, we are encouraged to go along and film there while enjoying the snacks and drinks on offer.  On this day, we were listening to Philip Bloom, award winning cameraman.
Managing to get a ticket for Jasmine too was amazing as she is studying Creative Media at college.  She is loving it.

We had fun of course and for us to get there on the train was pretty straight forward.
We will definitely be going again.  To film inside there, we need 10,000 subscribers so if you haven't subbed to me yet please do that here.
Jasmine has her channel here.

Enjoy these shots and see our video too!

~As always~

Much love

My gorgeous new look!

Just as it seems my world was falling apart with news of Jamaica being hit by a terrible hurricane (I'm due to be there in 6 weeks getting married!) and Jasmine and I getting caught up in an emergency evacuation right down underneath Euston train station (scary!) I am thrilled to announce two new 'things'...

Yes, this blog has had a makeover (I LOVE it, hope you do too!).  Thanks to the guys at pip dig (their link is at the bottom of the page) who have created a wonderful sterling page for me.
Don't forget to look on your computer if you are on mobile as you can see all the sharing and follow buttons over there! Go check out what I'm up to on the other channels!!!

On top of all this, Jasmine and I did manage to enjoy a wonderful day with Louise Peatland aka Sprinkle of Glitter at a Stand up to cancer charity event. I've loads of fantastic photos to show you guys so please make sure you come back and see those really soon.  It was a wonderful day and we had such a great time while helping a wonderful cause too...

Here's a cheeky taster...

All ready to leave

Jasmine and I arrived!

Coffee and cake anyone?

The lovely host Louise Pentland and I

Come back and see more in a little while guys! Let me know how you like the new look blog?

Much love

You want a better life right? Maybe even work from your computer?

 My crazy, crazy friend Leonie has given me so much inspiration.

So yes she really is crazy (I'm a little goofy myself!) but she is one smart lady.

I'm excited to share her 'stuff' with you.  Motivating so many into creating their most amazing life and business with her free webinars, online sharing and then of course there are business investments you can affordably make to yourself in order to drive your dreams into reality.

Now of course the best person to explain this would be Leonie.  You can click here and go see her in all her crazy hippie glory and watch some of the free materials online.  You might well find this is enough to drive you at great speed into your amazing future using the law of attraction and all things dreamy but true.

For me, I learnt all about the law of attraction with the most amazing shock ever.  I hadn't realised life could be so good.  To say I'm now living the dream might give you images of speed boats and never doing any work.  Yet that's not what I want in my life.  I'm ambitious, I love to work.  But yes, things are amazing and it's all happened so quickly!

I would suggest you hop over and have a look to see what Leonie might do for you.

Come back and let me know what you are thinking, how you are feeling and what your future might look like if you allowed yourself the cheek to dream!

Much love

Louise xoxo

First day back at university

As a second year human nutrition student I'm feeling excited.

Waking at 5am has become no stranger to me just lately.  You may have seen from my Youtube channel I am tweaking my health right now.  Since that, I can wake early and feel refreshed.  Although I still get tired later on, I decided to embrace the day and get up.  Letting you guys into the secret of how I am feeling!

Yes I am definitely excited to be getting back into the lecture theatre.
Today we study cardiology which will help me fantastically in keeping an eye on Scott as he continues to recover from Myocarditis.

Our lecturer is amazing.  She's beautiful to watch as she presents,  funny and engaging.  I adore lessons with her and others who are like her.  Doesn't a teacher make all the difference! Crazy eh.

Of course, I won't be forgetting you guys and this blog, quite the opposite in fact.  I aim to use the library as a hideaway where I can work until I'm done then I go home.  Only then! I always overfill my to do list but I want to achieve all the things I want to achieve.  Telling you guys my stories and sharing any knowledge I feel you might like to know!

Recently, I have published a new blog which is ideally for those wanting to find out about studying nutrition and dietetics yet this is a year behind.  For example, a year today will see a post about starting year 2 (which is actually today!).  If you are interested in learning the science of what I get up to, head over there by clicking here.
If it's nutrition you want to hear about rather than the science of what I'm learning then there is a better blog for you here.

On top of all that, you can sign up to get posts in your inbox on the right hand side of this page and I will be sending a monthly newsletter now which you can sign up to here for FREE :) Yay we all love free stuff.

I'd love to hear your comments.  What are you up to at this time of year?  Are you looking forward to Halloween?  Who dresses up?  What about the leaves changing colour this autumn?  Gorgeous!

Have an awesome day you awesome lot

Love always

Louise xoxo

Just one day out of life.

Madonna sang, "if we took a holiday, just one day out of life. It would be so nice."

Both Scott and I have been struggling with health and way too busy just lately. So we headed out for lunch on our one day holiday to spend some much needed down time together. 

While I'm still on my 8 week blood sugar diet, I made choices as wise as I could while still enjoying my meal. 

Drinking a litre of water must have helped with the meal. Surely. 

Two glasses of prosecco were brought to us (I gave mine to Scott who is starting the blood sugar diet on Monday) as we chose our meals. 

Starting with pulled pork, I passed my bread to Scotts plate. The accompanying salad was delicious. Apple and fennel. In the prettiest little mini saucepan. Copper cuteness indeed. I cannot describe the taste sensation my taste buds experienced with the pulled pork.  Amazing.

Scotts Dish...

My main course was a venison burger (I asked for this without the bun) topped with melted cheese and a tomato watercress salad which balanced out so many flavours.  Sweet potato fries were totally amazing in their own little bucket of loveliness.

Scott started a little joke with our wonderful host as she cleared empty plates.
"Was everything alright for you?" She asked warm heartedly.
"Terrible, it was terrible as you can see." Scott joked.  

I did partake in dessert which was delicious and rather sugar laden I feared but other than eating cheeseboard I could not avoid such naughtiness.  I figured if I were to eat nothing for the rest of the day and be 100% carb free the following day, I could pull back my ketosis for the blood sugar diet.  

Scott and I (and the family) have eaten here many times before.  I believe they are a michelin star restaurant and very much deserved.  From being just sweet and lovely to catering for me and my odd nutritional needs with the gluten free requests, I would urge you to get on over and make a reservation.  

Here are the details of one of my very favourite restaurants.

Tell them I sent you!

Meanwhile, the day was topped off with Scott and I enjoying a coffee with cream while enjoying each others company.  We seldom get to spend time like this.  When we do, it's super special.  We chatted our jaws off as I looked into the lovely face of the man I shall be marrying in 8 weeks time and spending the rest of my life with.

Where is your favourite restaurant?  Would I enjoy it there? I might have to pop over.

Much love

Louise xoxo

Ps why don't you pop a days holiday in your diary.  A whole day off to indulge yourself.  Do it.

Warning! Sad video about health, Crohns and liver issues.

Please be warned this is a pretty low video.  Not very positive but it's all leading somewhere as I talk about Crohns disease, raised blood sugars and liver issues.

As I got this news about my health I was shocked and hence I stopped to think about making the video there and then.

I KNOW I can turn my health around with lifestyle changes and I WILL.  I would love your support!

This is what makes me want to be a nutritionist.  To help others as I know what it feels like!

Much love

Louise xoxo
