Freakin' Delish!

Hello you lovely lot! 
Your gal is back and this time with Grenade Freakshakes - yasss! Well, you know me, so these are a slightly healthier(..ish) take on these incred desserts. High in protein and low in sugar, these babies are the perfect sweet-treat to curb them sugar cravings! 

I decided to create a Choc Peanut flavour, based on my all-time fave Peanut Butter Grenade protein bar and a Mint flavour freakshake - with Grenade's Mint & Dark choc bar being another winner. I did a lil 'Choc Peanut V Mint' poll on my Insta story and the Choc Peanut came out on top - so without further ado...
.The Choc Peanut Freakshake - 

You will need:
- Grenade Peanut Butter protein bar
- Grenade chocolate protein spread *Jar-decor only* (ps- this is delishhh.. so get a spoon!)
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 2 Scoops Form Choc Peanut protein powder (or choc protein of your choice)
- 100g frozen cauliflower
- 1tsp peanut butter (I used Pip 'n' Nut)
- 200ml milk of your choice (I used semi-skimmed, due to its high protein properties)
- Chopped hazelnuts *Jar-decor only*
- Toppings of choice (I used strawberries & raspberries)

Step 1: Jar prep! Ok, not only does this make your freakshake look all the more dreamy, but it actually makes it taste better too - and gives you a lil choc mustache (hehe!) It's as easy as, spread the Grenade protein spread around the rim of the jar..
Step 2: Get sprinkling ya hazelnuts
Step 3: Place in the fridge for an hour to set - & voila!
Step 4: Time to make your actual Freakshake and it's basically the simplest method evaaa.. Place 1/2 the peanut butter protein bar in a blender with the ingredients listed above (excluding the protein spread and hazelnuts)
Step 5: We blend!
Step 6: Pour into your jar 
Step 7: Get creative with your toppings! I used a kebab skewer to stick out the rest of my protein bar *health & safety warning* - I stuck the stick straight through my hand  - lol. Only me! So.. be careful/less clumsy than moi! Also, in case you're wondering..I leave 1/2 of the protein bar out of the mix because, well, you know that feeling when you've finished your dessert and wish you could eat it all over again? (Just me, lol) Well.. this way, you finish your freakshake and (woo) you got half ya bar left to nibble on!

To the 27% of you that voted Mint.. here we go:

Mint Freakshake-
You will need:
- Grenade Mint Choc protein bar
- Grenade white choc protein spread *Jar-decor only*
- 1/2 avo
- 1/2 frozen banana
- handful of spinach
- 2 Scoops vanilla protein (I used Form Nutrition)
- 200ml milk of your choice (again, I used semi-skimmed)
-100g Greek Yogurt (I used Fage)
- 1/2 tsp Mint flavouring
- Sprinkles *Jar-decor only*
- Toppings of your choice

Step 1: As before (please read steps 1-3 from the Choc Peanut recipe) I did a lil jar-prep. This time I used Grenade's white choc spread (equally as delish as the milk chocolate.. don't ask me to pick a winner!) and sprinkles!
Step 2: Place 1/2 of the Mint choc bar in a blender with the ingredients listed above (excluding the protein spread and sprinkles) 
*Tip: Go easy on the mint flavouring, okkk! You can always add a lil extra if you really wanna go for that minty taste but you can't take it out once it's in ;) *
Step 3: Add your toppings! This time around I did a lil protein/marshmallow kebab combo and it was goodddd.

So there we have it :) 
Please lemme know if you do create one (or both) - I'd love to see your photos! And, even if you're not one for a Freakshake (lol, why are you even on this page?) deffo try the Grenade protein bars. They are THE perfect substitute for a chocolate bar or even just a delish, easy way to get in some extra protein when you're on the go! 


& for you babes that would like the macros - I got you..
*please note this includes the protein bar but not the toppings*
Choc Peanut: 609 CALORIES, 63G PROTEIN, 10G SUGAR, 51G CARBS, 21G FAT
Mint: 685 CALORIES, 62G PROTEIN, 12G SUGAR, 37G CARBS, 27G FAT
Bon Appetit!

Summer Style

Hiii guys! How are we all feeling about saying farewell to Summer? I actually love Autumn and am really excited for cosy nights-in, knitted jumpers and Halloween- who's with me?

But..before I can close the door officially on Summer - I thought I'd do a quick round-up of my fave looks that I wore throughout the season. Feel free to lemme know your fave :)

Let's get to it..

White Frills
Top: River Island | Skirt: Zara
I wore this little number out to dinner with the girls and received soo many lovely comments on it! The perfect day-to-night piece - I've worn it since with Mom jeans and boots!

 Leopard Vibes
Top: Topshop | Skirt: Topshop | Boots: Asos | Bag: Brandy EU | Belt: New Look
It's no secret that Leopard print is THE print of the season.. so you cant really go wrong with this skirt. Paired with a pink T & black boots and you're good to go!

Rose
Top: Brandy EU | Skirt: Zara
The skirt strikes again! Seriously, a denim skirt is a wardrobe staple that every girl needs! How cute is this T too? Super simple but the square-cut neck and rose embroidery gives it that extra sumin-sumin!

Sunflower-power
Dress: Asos

The perfect little summer dress! Super casual, comfy and easy.. who doesn't love a bitta sunflower-power? Well my mum did, so I bought her one too :)
 #Twinning 

 Polka Polka
Jumpsuit: Oasis | Jacket & Bag: Brandy EU
I LOVE this jumpsuit.. it's polka-dot, has pockets and a lil frilly bit at the top.. what more could you want? Oh and did I mention it's super comfy? Yeah.. it's a winner!

& It Was All Yellow

Dress: Topshop | Jacket: Brandy EU | Backpack: Skinny Dip

Pastel yellow & gingham.. Whatta combo! If I'm honest, it wasn't even this that won me over.. it was the lil tie-up back - cuteee!

Lady In Red

Dress: Pretty Little Thing | Jacket: Brandy EU

Ok, the secret is out.. I wear this over-sized denim with everything! Teamed with this floral number, you got a perfect bbq/date-day outfit. Heads up: it's a lil short.. so bowling/crazy golf or any activity that involves movement - best to avoid (lol)

Stripe A Pose
Blouse: Zara | Skirt: RI | Backpack: Fiorelli | Sunnies: Quay

Say Hello to denim skirt no.2! I got this blouse from Zara- style it out, tucked in or tied (like me) and voila! It also looks super cute with Mom jeans and sliders.. I got you!
______________________

& There we have it! So, go on.. what was your fave? All of these, especially the jumpsuit, can be transitioned into Autumn. Just swap the jacket for something heavier, pair with jeans and layer layer layer!

Well, I hope you spotted something that tickled ya fancy! I'll be back soon with an Autumn Haul on my Youtube channel - yeppp Youtube!! I finally, after months of saying it, whipped my ass into gear and my first video went live this week (wooo!) If you haven't already watched it, it's a lil Q&A with a bitta modelling, fitness, personal life anddd some other bits & bobs in there. I'll link it below so make sure you check it out!
