Calling all Coffee Lovers | Littles Review


A coffee a day keeps the dr away? I’m sure I read that somewhere once! I can’t start my day without a coffee so what better way that a beautifully flavoured coffee that is 2 cals per cup and syn free if you are on slimming world.

Did you know that coffee can help in your diet?

According to this piece on the NHS “coffee can make you live longer” and “Drinking three to five cups of coffee a day could help people live longer, new research has found,” The Independent reports. 

It goes on to say that the study cannot prove cause or effect and that people who drink five cups of coffee a day are no more likely to have died. There are stats and numbers on that article if you like that sort of thing, so go check it out.

I‘m not claiming miracles here but the fact that you CAN enjoy coffee without the worries that are displayed in he media make me a happy bunny. 

Little’s are a small independent company that truly deliver on their products. Being low cal, syn free and no added sugar, they take pride in creating coffee for everyone. Even down to the advertising and product design, compared to large brands they’re stealing the show ❤️ 

These are the flavours I have tried;

  • Island Coconut 
  • Rich hazelnut 
  • Spicy cardamom
  • French Vanilla
  • Swiss chocolate 
  • Maple walnut

With each coffee I got a taste for the time of day I liked it. I prefer different types of coffee throughout the day, maybe that’s the coffee snob in me or I just like varied flavours, you decide 😉 but for me in the morning I loved French Vanilla, it is a light and refreshing coffee and sets me up for the day. In the evening I loved having Maple Walnut or Swiss Chocolate. Maple walnut has an amazing nut aroma whereas Swiss chocolate with almond milk, tasted like chocolate so it gave me my sweet fix without using syns. I found if I didn’t use milk you couldn’t taste the chocolate, it was more like a rich black coffee.

What I love is my diet has changed slightly and I am following the fodmap diet and mixing it with slimming world. The fodmap diet is for IBS and you are basically gluten and dairy free by I’m going to explain it in another post. So there’s a lot of foods limited, including some coffees but what I find is fantastic, Little’s coffee is completely fodmap safe, so I am over the moon with that! I can still enjoy my favourite coffee without worrying.

Now I have finished all my coffee, it feels like I have went through it really quickly but I do love my coffee ☕️💜.

Low syn Baked Oats | Slimming World

I haven’t made baked oats in a while and I missed them. So I made a video which is live on YouTube and you can view it by clicking here.

These baked oats are 4 syns for both, using your hexb & part hexa. Great for breakfast or evening snack, they taste so naughty and it feels like you’re having a nice treat for little syns. 

What you will need:

  • 35g oats (hexb)
  • 50mls of skimmed milk ( 1.5 syns per 100ml so I would say 1 syn or take the amount from your hexa) *
  • 1 egg (protein)
  • 2 caps of Salted Caramel extract or a flavouring of your choice (free)
  • 1 tsp of sweetener
  • Nutella (4 syns per level tbsp)
  • Muffin tray
  • 2 silicone cases

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees

Measure your 35g oats and put in a jug with your milk and stir. Then add in your egg and mix throughly. Then add your sweetner and flavouring of your choice. Combine all together. 

Place your silicone cases onto your muffin tray or tray, then pour in the mixture. 

Using a measuring spoon, take one tbsp of Nutella and plop half into each of the muffin mixture.

Now you can lick the spoon 😋

Put into your oven on 180 for 20-25 mins. Then leave to cool for 3-5 mins.

Then pop them out and enjoy as they are or decorate it with Sweet Freedom chocshot.

Serve with some speed food and yogurt, or if you’re having an SP day have some quark. 

These muffins are perfect for an SP day because it used milk and not yogurt. 

If you make them be sure to let me know here, YouTube or tag me on Instagram as I’d love to see. 

I hope you enjoy x

102lbs lost. Weigh in update

Hi Guys!
So I did it!! I went to weigh in on Tuesday night and lost 3.5lbs taking it to 102lbs or 7st 4lbs lost! I can’t quite believe it ❤️ and I got slimmer of the week, chuffed!


I can now feel the change in my body. I know this may sound bizarre but being so huge I never felt the first few stone made any difference. I was able to physically do more but couldn’t actually feel it. I wish I took more photos but I honestly didn’t believe in myself that I would make it to this point and I’m so upset I ever doubted myself. 

Now I can feel the changes on my body, I can finally see I am smaller, I feel lighter. 

Honest changes;

  • My bum fits in my own chair
  • I don’t knock people on the bus anymore with my arms
  • I also fit into my own chair on the bus
  • I can cut my toenails without struggling
  • Shave/Wax areas that so needed it 😂
  • Cross my legs, wow that feels amazing!
  • Strangers talking to me without looking at my weight first
  • My hair everywhere grows quickly
  • My skin has cleared up
  • I don’t get sick as often

There are so many little and big changes that have changed my life, every day I’m finding something new. It is crazy and I love it! I love it so much! 

I have attached this weeks weigh in video, hope you enjoy and if you want to watch my journey from the start then head over to my YouTube, grab a cuppa and watch 💕 

Here’s to the next 4st 3lbs 🙌🏻 this time next year I will be at target 💪🏻🎉 

Thank you for all your support it means the absolute world to me ❤️ x

Woman of the Year 2016

Hey guys!

So let’s jump right in. Around 1.5 months ago I was award Woman of the Year 2016 this was an amazing achievement, to think my group found me in any way inspirational is a real honour.

I never thought I would inspire anyone on my journey but if I do I’m so happy! I am thankful for each person I’ve met at group and online. The support when you need it is so fantastic! 

Being given such an award boosted my confidence a little. I have such self doubt and my confidence is still low but it is higher than it has ever been before and I hope with time it will grow more. I just want to look at my achievements and see I have done good. Another reason I am posting about WOTY is to appreciate it and realise that I am doing ok. I just want to point out I’m not being cocky, it is ok to accept you’ve done good and be proud. 

So my advice is be proud of your achievements no matter what they are. Life is hard, this journey is challenging and progress is progress. 

I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart ❤️
