Meeting up with the owner of Prime Sportswear

So over the weekend I met up with a very close friend of mine and young entrepreneur Kieran, he has set up a sports based clothing line, Prime Sports Wear. He very kindly asked me a while back to be a brand ambassador which of course I accepted but unfortunately we haven't really had the chance to actually sit down and talk properly about the brand due to both our work schedules since. As I was in London over the weekend, we was both free so it was a great opportunity to meet up and talk.

As you may have not yet heard of the brand I did ask a few questions just so you can who is behind the brand and what they are about.

When did you start Prime Sportswear?
We have been going for almost two years and so far its been an amazing journey.

Where did you get the idea to start the PSW?
The idea came from two things, wanting to own my own business and my love sport and I tried to find a way to combine both of them and get something started. In addition what really helped was that I go gym every day and I was seeing people wearing kind of old clothes which aren't really sporty and can restrict people doing certain exercises. *light bulb moment* lol

What have you found challenging or interesting so far?
The art of learning the needs and wants of people is very interesting. Trying to produce clothing at affordable pricing has been at the forfront of the business as we try and adopt the skills to improve peoples lives around the well living to increase motivation and confidence amongst themselves.

Is there a message you are trying to send everyone?
It is not just a anytime thing, it's literally everyday. These are our goals, to improve your lifestyle which means you always push and work hard. It is a statement. Dominating to perfections allows you to break barriers and also go above and beyond

What are your social media links?
WebsiteTwitter and Facebook @PrimeSportswear

Is there anything else you would like to add?
Remember our three taglines:
Dominate to perfection
Stay ready, be ready
Never settle for less
Don't forget to add and follow us on social media

I was also very kindly given some merchandise for myself and my parents. I am not just saying this but the quality and feel of the track tops is just so good. I've since worn the black track top and the t-shirt since and honestly so comfortable. My parents were also very happy with them too!

If you haven't already seen there is a short video over on my Youtube channel with a little intro to Prime Sportswear, click here. Go check it out and give it a thumbs up :)

Finding a new book to read

Finding a book to read is something I find a exciting, it's not always about what latest book is out but about finding something that will take you away from your daily routine and into another zone. I haven't read a book for a while and I've been on the look out even asked posed the question to everyone on my Instagram and Snapchat, a few people did come back to me so thank you all for the recommendations. There isn't a particular genre that I will pick every time it's just about something that is a good interesting read.

I've been looking at a few books lately and I'm finding it a little difficult to choose one to start with, there is so many out there that sound so good in their own ways, here is what I've come across and been recommended so far.

Origin - Dan Brown
When I looked at this one a little further to find what it is about there was a lot, too much to write here! My understandings of the book is that Harvard professor, Robert Langdon visits a Museum in Bilbao, Spain to attend a major announcement and the host Edmond Kirsch, also a former student, is about to reveal a breakthrough. The evening turns into chaos and Langdon flees Bilbao with the museum director to Barcelona to try locate a cryptic password to unlock Kirsch's secret. Of course a lot more happens in between but this sounds very interesting.

We're going to need more wine - Gabrielle Union
Gabrielle Union has written a book which includes several chapters in which she talks about personal and true stories about power, color, gender, feminism and fame. Also she talks about different range of experiences including bullying, beauty standards, and competition between women in Hollywood, growing up in white California suburbia and then spending summers with her black relatives in Nebraska, coping with crushes, puberty, and the divorce of her parents. We only see what they want us to see and not what is behind closed doors, she appears to be very open in this book.

5 places I want to travel to

Mid August last year I renewed my passport after it had been expired after some time and went Amsterdam just after my birthday in November with a few of my friends, if you haven't read the post click here. Going away just for that one night I realised how much I want to travel more visit different countries and try new things. This year I will most likely be looking at booking a little break somewhere. There is definitely an excitement of having something to look forward to and not being at work for a week or so.

I've listed just a few places I would love to go to, hopefully in the near future I can tick these off my list and have new destinations.
The top of my list has to be Jamaica, now if you know me I have already been here before but I was 14 at the time and couldn't do as much as I wanted to but I would definitely return for a holiday. What more could you want amazing food, rum, music, sun, sea and good people?

Mini Body Shop haul

So over the weekend I popped into my local Body Shop, in all honesty the only reason I went in is because I received an email saying they have 40% off their 100ml hand creams and I am running low on the one I keep at work.
Whilst I was in store I noticed it was double points weekend for anyone who has a Body Shop card and thought I would look around and see what else they have in at the moment.
A lot money could have been spent but I was good and only picked up two new products to try. Also when you make any purchase on your receipt there is often £10 off any purchases made between certain days although they never for a long period but I suppose you could buy one small thing and then with the voucher you could save some money?

Comedy night out?

Last weekend Mo the Comedian was in Ipswich so me and some family and Sharna got some tickets and said we would go out for the evening. A few of us went to Mizu to get some food before hand, if you know me, you will know that I love Mizu! If you every find yourself in Ipswich or Brentwood and like noodle oriental food I would definitely give this a try.

Staying organised

So every year I normally buy a new diary from Paperchase or inserts for a organiser I have but if I'm honest this year I was lazy and didn't buy anything. Instead I decided to buy a personal size Filofax, Domino in Fawn, it included 2018's diary inserts a to do list and some coloured paper (not sure what I will use these for) but enough to get me started.

I tried meat free

So a couple months ago or so I had considered to try a meat (including fish) free diet only something short term to see if I could get on with it. I don't eat loads and loads of meat, mainly chicken and fish to be honest but I've heard of many people going meat free or doing the veganuary challenge where they have lost weight or felt better in themselves and I was intrigued. Also I recently heard that a quarter of UK dinners are actually meat or fish free. Personally I think going completely vegan would be a big jump with not doing anything like this before and there is a lot of things I think I would need to change but this was my first step.

Now I didn't do a straight two weeks like I originally planned my downfall was the weekends, the first weekend I went out with a few girls out of Ipswich and the weekend just gone I was in London. The first part was from Monday 29th January till the Saturday and then Monday 5th February till the Friday. It was a little different trying it that way but I suppose it was a way also to see if I really missed it which during the week I didn't but come the weekends when I'd be out it was kind of a different story, I'd be on my way home tipsy and hungry with nothing else really open it was some kind of fast food at the time.

Here is just a few meals I had cooked, I didn't get a picture every one I had tried but other dishes I made had included omelettes, roasted veg, a few Subway salads for lunch, jacket potatoes and home made soup.
