Summer is coming and my Wingz are out! (Wingz Fashion Review)


Having lost 9st (128lbs) I am quite conscious about my arms and loose skin. I know the world is in a body positive movement right now but I haven’t caught up with this yet and I am conscious about my arms, so while someday I hope to love every inch of my body, I don’t! So having Wingz in my life has helped and changed how I view myself. Also with it getting warmer I don’t have to cover up in cardigans, hoodies or jumpers like I have before.

The material is so light weight, breathable and comfortable; while being opaque. Easy to put on and wear under tops and dresses. If you watch my YouTube video, you will see how easy it is to get on, even with my clumsy self 😂

In the photo I am wearing a stringy top with a vest over but you’d never know I was wearing Wingz. They’re discret and go with everything so far. I even tried them with a sports top (in video) and although it didn’t cover I had a lot of suggestions about pinning it to my top and that would make it perfect for it too.

Now I am a size 16 but I had to order a size 18-22 in the Wingz because my arms are big and have a lot of loose skin. As I had to order a bigger size (using the sizing chart) because the other size is 12-16 and I didn’t think that would fit. With being a much bigger side they slip of my shoulders, I maybe should have ordered a smaller size anyway because this, it can be a problem. It’s just because I’ve lost lots of weight from my shoulders but my arms are hanging on for dear life 😂

The Wingz I have are Black full length fitted stretch Wingz they’re £16.99 with £2.49 standard delivery. 

They come in lots of different styles and colours, I need some of the flowy Wingz for summer, they be great with the basic vests you can buy, easy to spice up our wardrobe without breaking the bank, while feeling confident. No more searching for clothes with sleeves, this can be draining and upsetting; I know this feeling well!

Make sure to check out Wingz Fashion and if you get yourself some make sure to tag me in your photos on twitter and Instagram; I’d love to see!

Forest Feast luxury snack review

After researching dried fruits and their benefits I came across Forest Feast, they are a premium dried fruit, seed and nut snack company from back home in Northern Ireland. The company started out with only mango on their shelves, but now they have over 150 different combinations and flavours in over 36 countries worldwide. How amazing is that?

They were kind enough to send me some samples to try out for myself and the kids. For me, nuts, seeds and dried fruit are an important part of my healthy lifestyle, something I use everyday in yogurt, breakfasts, baked oats or just as a snack. The kids take portioned snack pots to school, as too much of a good thing can be bad for us 😉

I absolutely loved these smaller snack packs, if you portioned it out you could have 20-25g for 5 syns. Just like other brands that have snack packs or shots but Forest Feast have a wider variety in the bag and no processed chocolate in there either! A full bag is around 15 syns so if you wanted a full bag, you could have one. 

If you’ve been following me a while you know I love adding toppings to my breakfast. Here I have Zoats and I topped it with Forest Feast goji berries; which added beautiful flavour of sweetness to my somewhat savoury breakfast. The berries didn’t last to long, between myself and my daughter using it in overnight oats. 

In this breakfast I used the Fruit, Nut and Berry mix; stirred it into my warm breakfast. It was beautiful. Having a crunchy texture mixing with a soft sweet hit of the berries, really made the breakfast. As I’m sure you can tell I am very passionate about breakfast. It is my favourite meal of the day, the biggest, healthiest and the one to set my day on the go.

My favourite snack was the apricots, keeping them in the fridge and dipping in when I fancied something sweet. Dried apricots really are like natures candy; just like mejooled dates.

I am planning to make some high protein energy balls with the rest and a few more recipes so keep your eyes peeled. I have already had some recipes on my YouTube channel and I have chatted about them there so be sure to check that out too.

So let’s talk about price? They’re a premium snack so it can seem a bit more expensive when you intitally see the price but when you compare it to some supermarket brands and depending on the offer, the price is competitive. I like that the snack bags are only £1 you can portion them out so they will last a few days. 

Will I purchase my favourites? Yes I will. You can buy these online;

  • Ocado
  • Amazon

Or in store;

  • Waitrose
  • Asda
  • Tesco
  • Costco
  • Dunnes stores (N.I.)

I can’t wait to get some more apricots and finally try some of Forest Feast Mejooled dates.

You can find out more information on Forest Feast website

All of the products that we tried got a positive reaction so they’re all great to have in the cupboard for a snack and a healthier alternative for school lunchboxes. I also find it a great tool for my children to know about healthier fats, carbs and protein in their diet.

So my diary for the day isn’t perfect as I had a bag of high syn sweets but I really fancied it. I was craving everything and could have eaten so much crap but I was satisfied after the sweets. So I was 15.5 syns over for the day, which means I’ll deduct a couple over the next week each day.

Daily food diary | what I eat on a day out. 

So you might be shocked when you see my diary and how many syns I used. I was on a day out and throughly enjoyed it. When I got home yes I indulged again; but I worked this in to my plan. All week I knew I was going to have pizza on Saturday, it was just a frozen one from Asda but I wanted it. I worked out the syns before hand and new I would “keep” some syns. Now I didn’t factor in I would have lunch out with a friend and I did enjoye some gorgeous food and a pud without checking the syns first. My bad but these things never happened often to me. It’s been years since I’ve actually done that so I lived for the moment. When going back over and working out my syns I used a whooping 87 but once I tallied it all up I still have 15 syns to do me to Tuesday! So seeing as this is Sunday now if I keep going on plan it still should work for me.

So here’s my diary and some photos for you. No SAS log today, never thought I would need it because I ate out and recording it once was enough lol
