This is another Temporary:Secretary treat from my goody bag. I like to think of it as 'My Lovely Horse'
And this next one is more about the nails. . . Barry M - bloody love the stuff! I was discussing when I win the lottery how I'm going to walk into a Superdrug store and just walk off with the Barry M cart.
Now unfortunately, I can't tell you either of the colour names as I've had them so long everything has rubbed off apart from the numbers (Yellow: 134 & Pink: 272)
I'm sure you'll have noticed my other Temporary:Secretary piece - the Owl ring! I've often debated wearing my owl jumper, hair grips and ring to see if anyone would point it out or just think I was mental!
So, I'm done - again!!
P.S I may be quiet over the weekend as I'm going home to get a tattoo and see the family, hopefully I'll get a good Sunday Roast out of it!
Myself, Alex, Andy and Helen went along to Media City to watch John Bishops Britain being filmed - Media City is very swanky by the way, although the 'Audience Entrance' felt a little bit like the security check in at an airport!
And - it was bloody brilliant! Although I'm sure alot of the jokes we laughed at weren't part of the script and would be too rude for TV! I don't really care, it was fun to watch John Bishop and his sparkly teeth, but also, really cool to see how these things are filmed!
There were a few times when we had to 'just laugh' or 'just clap' which was a bit tedious but other than that I geniunely laughed and fingers crossed they'll use the audience footage from last night and our lovely faces will be seen!
Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures of my Porcupine Meatballs in Red Wine sauce - we were in a bit of a hurry.
I can assure you though that they were AMAZING!! Helen and Alex won the 'Battle of the Meatballs' and had four each! Me and Andy tapped out after three.
Anyway, that's all for now folks.

Here is what I rustled together on Sunday - it had to be quick and tasty otherwise I was hitting the pizza!
This took about five minutes to make - it's basically a vegetable stir fry with noodles - the sauce was a mix of Soy, vegetable stock and a spoonful of Sweet Chilli!
As you can probably tell - using the left over veg from the Pilaf the other day.
This is pretty much what I had again for tea tonight, only with a few strips of frying steak thrown in (which I was too hungry to take a picture of before I chowed down - oops!)
Finally, getting to the reason why I called this post "Hot Stuff!!" This sauce has to be one of my favourite Chilli sauces, I know it's probably not Weight Watcher friendly, but a little bit here and there can't hurt too much, right?
I'd happily put this on all of my meals - excluding breakfast, but I think people may think I'm a little strange!
Anyway, on tomorrows menu is some kind of meatball dish - I'll let you know how that goes!
Oh, and I'm off to watch John Bishops Britain being filmed at Media City tomorrow, maybe I'll post about that too!

I went to a BBQ yesterday so I haven't made any yummy Weight Watchers delights to boast about either!
So instead, I thought I'd share a picture of one of my favourite tee's and a pretty little rose necklace I like to wear!
The necklace is a nice Primark find, and the vest is a Leeds Festival steal - although its far too big so I have to wear a brooch on the back to bring it in a little!
So yeah, hopefully I'll pull my finger out this week and have something good to talk about!

And here it is - my vegetable pilaf. I'd never taken the time to figure out how to make rice yellow before (it just tastes better yellow) and last night I found out, although it's 50/50 as to whether it was the Cumin or the Tumeric?
Anyway, yeah it was bloody lovely! Baby Sweetcorn, Broccoli, Onion, Red & Yellow Peppers, Spring Onion and Garlic!
Apparently this is half the points of a microwave meal, tasted a hell of a lot nicer and only took half an hour to make - score!
I think next on the agenda for blog posts will be . . . The skirts that hopefully I'll attempt to make at some point this weekend!
Now I'm off to help solve a crime with Alex on L.A. Noire

This isn't a regular meal for me, as I am trying my best to freshly cook healthier meals, however, getting in from work at 6.15 on a Wednesday night, it was the last thing I wanted to be doing (Plus we were going to watch Kung Fu Panda 2 at 7.30)
So on the menu tomorrow will be a Vegetable Pilaf - hopefully it will work out well, I've never had a Pilaf before.
I did say that I would post pictures of the things I'm making, so here's what we had on Sunday - Balsamic Roast Chicken, Vegetables and Tagliatelle!

Now I'm waiting for a suitable time to decide when I can treat myself to another bag of treats. . .
It beats having to decide on what I want (I can be quite indecisive) and they're all guaranteed to be pretty!
I'm still not 100% sure of what I'm going to be posting on here so for now I'll just talk about what kind of foods I'm making now that I'm dieting . . . A vain attempt to look good for Cyprus in September. Fingers crossed!
I think I'll also post pictures of things that I like, for example I might just post a picture that I posted on Twitter over the weekend of some new jewellery I bought a few weeks back, very pretty stuff from Temporary:Secretary.
Or maybe even the skirts I'm going to attempt to make this weekend - I'll either post about how disastrous that went (or how successful!)
All in all, I'm not sure what exactly I'm blogging on, but hopefully I'll think of some interesting things!
