My Protein White chocolate and almond protein cookie:

I recently received a package from My Protein which is a company that sells supplements and food filled with protein. I received this White Chocolate and Almond protein cookie* I do have a nut allergy so I gave the cookie’s to my sister and dad to review, so here is what they had to say:

The cookie had a good taste and the chocolate is very strong but not too overpowering, the texture was okay not quite the same as a normal protein free cookie, they did have a slight gritty texture which I think was down to the amount of protein in the cookies but it wasn’t enough to make me dislike the taste. It isn’t a very sweet taste nor is it too sickly so if you have a sweet tooth this might not be for you!

I found that it is quite a filling cookie and definitely keeps me going and full for ages which is good for after the gym etc. I also liked the fact that it felt like I was treating myself but without all the added bad bits!

I would say that the cookie might not be to everyone’s taste as it isn’t your regular non protein filled cookie and it doesn’t have that “Crunch” that I would normally look for in a cookie but overall I wasn’t impressed with the taste.

Overall both my sister and dad were impressed and said they would try them again, at my protein they do have different flavours of cookies which include; Chocolate orange, double chocolate, and the one I received white chocolate almond. This is available from my protein for £1.99 for 1 cookie which I do think is quite expensive when you do compare it with a normal cookie but it does have all the added benefits.

Have you ever tried a protein cookie? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

Ebay Wishlist #1

Victoria Secrets Spray Coconut passsion - £8.49 / Scratch Map - £6.78 / Rucksack - £4.99 / Clear Lipstick Storage - £2.28 / Desk Organiser - 99p / Key Holder - £6.99

I have been lusting over so many things on Ebay this month that I thought I would show you some of my favourite items! 

1. Victoria secrets spray in coconut passion, this is just my life right now! It literally smells of summer in a bottle and I just can't get enough of it! My friend started using it at college and since then I have just been addicted to it, if you haven't smelt it go and do it! 

2. Scratch Map, I have always wanted a map that I can scratch away when I have visited the county, I think its a nice little reminder of where you have been and where you might like to go! I plan to get one and put it on a cork board so I can pin images from my holiday around it. 

3. This is one of the cutest backpacks I have seen and think it would be great for school or college. 

4. Lipstick holders is something I always thought about getting but never got round to, I think it would be a nice way to store all my lipsticks in one place. 

5. I just love these desk organisers and just look how pretty they are! 

6. I have always been someone who looses their keys and can never find them so I am toying with the idea of getting a key rack holder and putting it by my desk so I always know where they are! 

Let me know what you have been lusting over recently!

Travel Wishlist

It has always been one of my dreams to travel as much as I can, I love to travel and discovering new places and seeing and experiencing new things. I have been on a few cruises and there is nothing better to waking up to a new country/ city each day. I thought it would be a good idea to come up with a list of some of the places I would like to go!

Hong Kong
New York

Have you been to any of these places? If you could travel anywhere where would you go?
