I'm sure if you have clicked on to read this post, then you're probably really interested in finding out where you can get your hands on nutella B-ready bars.

The famous nutella spread has introduced a new product to its line and it's definitely got me converted enough to want to purchase again.

This brand new release to the UK has been well sought after and is now finally stocked on the shelves at all major UK supermarkets. Definitely easy to get hold of, but definitely in high demand as my local supermarket has sold out already!

nutella B-ready bars are made up of a crunchy wafer shell, filled with delicious nutella and puffed wheat crispies. For someone like me who tends to shy away from having nutella for breakfast, these bars are great for those mid-morning slumps at my desk.

They can be enjoyed completely guilt free, as each individual bar is made up of less than 120 calories. Probably tastier than your average chocolate bar and a bit more kinder too.

nutella B-ready bars are priced at 59p each or a box of six is priced at £1.99. Definitely worth it in my opinion and I already cannot wait to get my hands on another box. Whoops.

I love it when I find bespoke and one of a kind products that really do deserve a mention. I was recently introduced to an illustrator called Hannah Dale. She started her designs and illustrations from her kitchen table in Lincolnshire and is now the proud owner of Wrendale Designs; with the help from her husband on the business side of things. 

Inspired by everything outdoors in the beauty countryside of Lincolnshire, Hannah started by painting hares and other wild animals. Hannah was then commissioned to illustrate a book with different dog breeds; with quirky facts to go alongside each breed. 

From the completion of this product, Wrendale Designs now has a wide collection of pet illustrated products; including pet tins and bowls for cats and dogs and homeware products too. However, all of her original paintings of wild animals can be found on products such as mugs and notebooks. There really is something for everyone at Wrendale Designs. 

Hannah asked if I'd like to pick some of her products to feature. I chose the dog food tin for Elsie and the cat treat tin for Albert, and the three of us was very excited to receive these in the post. 

Elsie has a mix of dry and wet food for both breakfast and dinner, so the dog food tin is perfect for keeping her dry pellets in. It is slightly larger than the treat tins - with a white body and slightly off grey lid; matching the decor of our kitchen perfectly!

The whole tin is illustrated with different dog breeds; including pugs and beagles. It also comes with a sturdy scoop which is really handy when transferring the food from tin to bowl. This tin is priced at just £23 which I think is an amazing price.

Elsie really loves it too and sat proudly next to her new food tin for a picture (or 30!). Fact: I always have to entice her with treats for these kinds of photos, or she doesn't cooperate! 

Albert's treat tin is perfect for him as he has a slight addiction to the cat treats called Dreamies. They are basically like cocaine for cats! There's some little beef sticks from the supermarket which he loves too, so we now keep these in his new tin. 

Again, the cat tin is illustrated with lots of different breeds of cats, and is the perfect size. It's slightly cheaper at £14.00 and utterly purr-fect for your feline friend too. 

A massive thank you to Wrendale Designs for these beautiful and unique pet tins. They sit very proudly on our kitchen shelves and the fur-babies love them too!

The 30 day challenge is over and I have never been more excited to share a final result. I introduced this challenge back in August and then had to stop the challenge due to a knee injury at the gym. I started it again a few weeks ago and told you all last week that I would be sharing my final results with you in a week's time.

Well, this is THE blog post AND video with those peachy results.

Incase you're not already familiar with the Squat Machine from my other two posts - it's a very light and portable machine available from HighStreetTv for a special price of £69.99 at the moment (usually £79.99).

It has three levels (beginner, intermediate, expert) and these are changed by the orange plugs at the base of the machine. It works by resistance, so the harder the level, the more strength it requires to push the seat down with your bum.

Here's the machine up close and how I used it during my challenge.

I was very intrigued by the machine when I was first ever told about it and now I've been able to use it, I can totally see why there's such a hype right now in the fitness world for it. Squatting has never been easier and you can do it in the comfort of your own home too.

I thought it would be a lot fairer if I wore the same workout leggings for both my before and after results, so here's what Ashleigh Dougherty's bum looked like a whole 4 weeks ago. I am wearing the Gymshark Seamless Leggings which are by far my favourite workout leggings, ever. They are extremely high waisted, so suck you in on all the right places. 

My bum was okay before, but definitely needed a bit of a work on to lift it and to generally make the glutes a lot stronger. I have used the squat machine from New Image for 4 weeks with a few rest days as part of the challenge and is my result.

So, it hasn't gone from Kylie to Kim in 30 days, but it has certainly lifted and got a lot more perk to it. I have noticed it sits a lot more comfortably in all of my skinny jeans and definitely feels like the muscle has grown a lot stronger. At least, it doesn't feel as jiggly! 

I cannot recommend Squat Magic enough for those inbetween workouts where I am too busy to get to the gym or simply cannot be bothered! Challenge yourself to squat for 30 days (with a few rest days too) and you will soon start seeing results! 

Squat Magic is available now and retails at £79.99 - but is priced at just £69.99 right now, exclusively at High Street TV.

The beautiful Ariana Grande has just launched a limited edition rendition of her fragrance, Sweet Like Candy. I've never smelt the original ARI fragrance, but this is new and improved and it really has had a true makeover.

Sweet like Candy is now available in a brand new red-hot design. The iconic multi-faceted gem-like bottle has been slightly redesigned - with a striking, matte red overall design. It includes a sleek, silver cap and Ariana Grande's name engraved just below. The new design finishes with a super cute red pom pom. It really is SO Ariana, but so very Ashleigh too!

Sweet Like Candy really does live up to its name. The original scent has been improved on a whole new level; going from fruity, to floral, to flirty. Its top notes bursts with a mix of delicious fruits, such as red berries and pear. The heart notes are very irresistible; with jasmine and dewy honeysuckle to name a few. It's a very flirty scent; combining its dry down notes of sensual musks; including  that of alluring liquid amber and fluffy marshmallows.

It's a great scent for any occasion and you can't really go wrong with it. I instantly feel happy and ready to start my day productively when I spray this.  For duration, I wouldn't say it lasts all day (how many perfumes do though?). However, it's a great one for date nights or shopping with the girls; or to pop into your handbag for top ups during the day. I mean who wouldn't want to pull this incredibly cute bottle out of their bag?!

I wasn't sure if this would be really sweet and end up reminding me of the Britney Spears scents that I used to wear when I was 13 (cringe). However, it's really surprised me and I definitely recommend smelling a sample if you can. It's a great one for any Ariana fans out there or anyone who likes a sweet and sensual scent.

The Limited Edition Sweet Like Candy is available from Superdrug and is priced at £30.

At the beginning of August, I introduced you to a magic seat called Squat Magic. This is a squat machine that if used regularly (with a good diet too), can tone and lift your bum.

I started a 30 day squat challenge which was meant to see me squatting a certain number of times, every day for 30 days. I then said I would report back half way through with my thoughts and then do a final post at the end of the challenge. Unfortunately though, I had a slight injury on my knee from the gym a few days after publishing that post, so I had to leave my fitness regime for a while and let my knee recover.

A few weeks ago, I started the challenge from scratch all over again and this is now my mid-challenge update. I am going to save the before and after photos for the finishing post coming soon, but for now I just wanted to report back with my thoughts.

It's worth mentioning that I have stopped going to the gym temporarily as I am in the midst of changing over gyms. Therefore, the only exercise I have been actively doing is a lot of walking and using my squat machine.

I have been using the squat machine every evening before having a shower and going to sleep. I have been following the 30 day challenge poster that comes with the machine. It's taken me a while to get back into a fitness regime due to my break, but it can be difficult to hit 100 squats on your first few days. However, my body is used to going to the gym everyday, so I haven't found it that difficult to reach up to 300 squats in one sitting.

I haven't been using weights - but I intend to try using some resistance bands to increase the resistance between each squat. I use them a lot anyway and find they work great if you feel like you're not getting any results with just a pure stand alone squat.

I will report back next weekend with my overall thoughts and some before and after photos of my Squat Magic butt!  There will also be an EXCLUSIVE giveaway for ONE lucky person to win their very own Squat Magic seat!

Squat Magic is available now and retails at £79.99 exclusively at High Street TV.

A few weeks ago, I was invited along to review dinner at The Elgin in Notting Hill. I love reviewing places in new areas, so it was lovely to explore Notting Hill for the first time. Shocking I know!

The Elgin is a British pub with lots of history behind it. Located at 96 Ladbroke Grove, it's about a 5 minute walk from Ladbroke Grove tube station. With an original listed bar, glistening hanging chandeliers, fresh flowers and cosy seating areas inside, you're guaranteed to enjoy some fine British food classics in comfort and style.

My guest and I went along on a weekday evening and it was an evening where they had live jazz music. Our table was reserved near the front, so we had an excellent view whilst watching the jazz singers perform.

Before I even get into this review, I just want to say that the service we received was outstanding. We was made to feel very welcome from start to finish and had an excellent and friendly delivery from the waitress that served our table. She answered any questions that we had and also recommended us dishes that are either very popular or her personal favourites.

Perusing the drinks menu, both my guest and I ordered an Aperol Spritz. We had never tried this drink before, but was surprised at how nice and refreshing it was. It reminded me a lot of the taste of a sweet rose wine, but with an extra fizz from the added prosecco.

Booked in for 7pm, we got the chance to explore the dinner menu. However, they do also have separate lunch and Sunday menus.

The waiter told us that main meals are quite large and I was already set on what I wanted for my main. Therefore, we decided to share a starter which ended up being more than enough for two people to share.

We ordered a sliced duck salad to share for starters. It came with beautifully cooked slices of duck breast; with hardly any fat on the meat. It arrived on a bed of dressed, fresh salad leaves, cubes of feta cheese, sesame seeds, pine nuts and a drizzle of a honey and mustard sauce over the top. Perfect, but unfortunately not available on their seasonal menu as of right now. Gutted for you. 

For main, I just couldn't resist The Elgin burger (£13.50); with prime beef, melted cheese, ale onions, iceberg lettuce, gherkin, ketchup and mayo - crammed into a giant cream, brioche bun and served with a mountain of delicious and crunchy fries. Probably one of the best cheeseburgers I have tried in a long time. 

It definitely filled me up and I couldn't quite finish it all, so I am so glad I shared a starter! It gave me enough time to take a break from eating and snap some photographs of this pub's beautiful and cosy interiors. 

My guest went for the complete opposite, which was a recommendation from the waiter. The marinated lamb chops (£16.00) come with new baby potatoes and a grilled baby gem lettuce; which is unique to The Elgin and not found anywhere else. Everything is finished off nicely with a green sauce. Utterly delicious and smelt so good! 

Feeling very full up, we had a break and a catch up over watching the live singers performing jazz music. It was nice to kick back and forget about being in the city on a school night. They have different music themed nights, so it's definitely worth checking out their what's on page if you're thinking of visiting. 

You know me and I can never exist a sweet treat; especially when it comes to something that is either a classic favourite of mine or something I have never seen before and entices me to order. 

I ordered the panna cotta (£6.00) with vanilla ice-cream, macerated raspberries and pistachio brittle. Very naughty, but very nice. 

My guest ordered the chocolate fondant (£7.50) with Devon fudge and cream fraiche ice-cream. Even naughtier than the panna cotta and definitely something to be enjoyed when you have room for something so worth the extra calories. 

We definitely left feeling more stuffed than we have ever been before, but it was 100% worth it. The food at The Elgin is delicious and extremely well priced in my opinion. It's a perfect little hideaway in the heart of West London and super cosy for those winter nights that are upon us. Not to mention that a visit comes with an excellent service too.
