How to play Microsoft Windows only games on a Mac using Nvidia Geforce Now

(N.B.- I am not an overly techy person writing this blog, some of it will be inaccurate in terms of computer/programming knowledge. But this is to show you what I did to get it to work without having to programme/partition drives etc) The glorious day has finally happened. I finally own my own iMac. If you have read my blog for a few years, you may have seen that owning an imac has been on my list for a long time. I first used them at school and college and just generally preferred Apple’s sleekness with their products. I was…

What is Orlistat and why am I taking it?

What is Orlistat and why am I taking it?

Orlistat is a fat-blocking drug designed to treat obesity and i’m taking it as part of my weight loss journey to get down from 135KG to less than 100KG. Orlistat works by blocking the enzyme that breaks down fats in your diet. This undigested fat then passes out of your body in your bowel movement. Orlistat does not block the absorption of calories from sugar and other non-fat foods, so you still need to restrict your total intake of calories. So I am currently eating 3 meals a day (some days I do have snacks and try my best to make them as healthy as…

This is my first post in a series of cafe reviews I’ll be bringing to my blog! We are now visiting a lot more of them than before and I thought why not add them to my blog!

Trespaws small dog Backpack Harness Review

Trespaws small dog Backpack Harness Review

Are you looking to buy a backpack harness for your adventures with your dog? We have wanted to for awhile and decided to opt for the Trespaws small dog backpack harness. Albie is an adventurous little dog who loves nothing more than being down the woods sniffing and exploring. We normally carry everything in our bags but sometimes it’s easier for Albie to carry his stuff when we’re out adventuring. So Rob decided he needed to get him his own adventure backpack. Whilst shopping in Trespass for his own gear, he saw the Trespaws small dog backpack harness and brought…

Skincare Products You’ll love : Aldi Lacura Silicone Facial Cleanser Review

Skincare Products You’ll love : Aldi Lacura Silicone Facial Cleanser Review

The Aldi Lacura Silicone Facial Cleanser has to be one of my favourite purchases of 2021. We all know Aldi are infamous for their dupes of far more expensive brands and I knew it wouldn’t be long until I found something I’d been looking for. My skincare routine has become more important to me in the past couple of years. I’m really trying to take better care of my skin, so I decided to take a leap and purchase the Foreo Fofo (the name still makes me chuckle). It was an expensive investment for me, but I thought my skin…

Why I’m giving myself one year to lose weight…

Why I’m giving myself one year to lose weight…

*Trigger warning* this blog post talks about eating issues, weight loss, mental health issues and suicidal thoughts. Please note this blog entry is a 4am ramble from the heart. True words that I’ve never written before. I know there will be others who feel similar. I’ve been wanting to lose weight ever since I was a teenager. I always felt overweight and massive compared to other girls, looking back on my size 10/12 frame, what I didn’t realise at the time, was that I simply matured quicker than others and had a curvier figure. What I would give to have…
