Zara Lust List March 2012

Its a friday night and for this poor nutritionist, pay day is still a week away and so am keeping company with Carrie & Co away from the temptation of Shoreditch nightlife.
British summer time offically starts this Sunday, eeeeeeeeee, (dont forget we loose an hour peeps) cue: long lazy days in the parks of London with a ice box of  picnic food/beers and maybe a cheeky game of Badminton thrown in for good measure. My lord, I LOVE summer- I feel like this winter has dragged on for far too long and as much as it means the end of my beloved fur coat wearing days (for a few months at least) it also means that the shops are full of wonderful skin flashing garments that i am itching to have in my grasp.

Usually when blogging i make a B-line for the delciousness that is Topshop but this time its all about Zara (also one of my favourite high street stores)  after checking out their latest drop of fashion glorious-ness i simply HAD to share with you all the latest additions to my ever-growing wish list...

Lust list... March 2012

Following up with a cheeky double post session..... Fashion is next on my mind.

Can i firstly say how gutted i was/am to not have anything from the Marni for H&M collection in my wardrobe... BIG SAD FACES. I do understand the concept of collaborations but seriously, whoever decides the stock levels for these things needs another training session- most of the collection sold out in the first day. This means that for fellow workers- we had no hope in hell of having the time to get down to the stores last Thursday. But hey, more money in my pocket to spend on these beauties.....

TTN Reviews: East London Steak Company

Hello! Remember me? Yes I am alive! Call off the search party, TTN is back!!

Its been a mad few months to start off 2012.... The job has taken a (albeit slight) step up but its my personal life that has really gone in to overdrive. After viewing past photos from NYE 2011/12 I was genuinely horrified at the evidence before me. I had got fat. Yes, I have always been in the curvaceous category but my lord, WHY did no one point the very blatant fact out to me that i had moved back in to the 'more rolls than a bakery' category??

So, 6 weeks of high protein dieting and once again signing my life away to the gym- i am now 1 stone lighter and one very happy lady! Actually, I'm not referring to my new habits as a 'diet' - the word is far too negative and short term for my liking.... instead I prefer to use 'lifestyle' (far more positive and long term, I think). Ive discovered that I actually thrive on goal setting, for every Kilo I shed I treated myself at the weekend (cue: many weekends of dancing and cocktailing with good friends). I still have a goal to reach but I'm getting there. I am hoping to transfer this new self-realisation in to my working life and get myself where i want to be career-wise (however long that will take).

ANYWAY, enough about my fat cells!!

Ill be posting about food and fashion today... first up FOOD...

With my high protein lifestyle the need for meat in my fridge has increased but the problem is actually being able to afford it without a) breaking the bank and b) spending my whole weekend travelling around London trying to actually get the stuff.... enter: The East London Steak Company (ELSCO)!

Check out their website for full details and don't be put off by their name, they deliver outside the M25 as well!

Basically, the concept is brilliantly simple- you order a box of meat from their website, free delivery if you are within the M25, select a delivery time (5:00- 8:30 am or 6pm-8pm, so no need to request time off work to collect your delivery), supply your details... and VOILA! Fresh meat delivered to your door!

I personally love the little cards you get in each bundle- handwritten to tell you the source of the meat and even the farm the animal lived.... it may put some of you off but whats wrong with knowing that your meat was once very much looked after and not from some random battery farm in deepest darkest Peru??

Needless to say the meat was DIVINE and I'm looking forward to placing my next order. This box was £26 and included steak sauce and steak rub as well as 4 burgers, 4 sausages, 2 rump steaks and 2 sirloins.... my tummy is rumbling as i type!
Red meat (regardless of bad press in recent days) is amazing for you and everyone should aim to have at least 2 portions a week in their diets- full of Iron, Zinc and is obviously rich in protein so its a winner for all... well except vegetarians... I don't think they would be too pleased!

Lots of Love
