If you're anything like me then the word "protein" scares you, or at least for me, it used to.... since turning my diet and fitness regime around at the start of this year and doing my research I have realised how much it can support you, long gone the old wives tales about it making you gain weight and making women really bulky, if used correctly and in moderation it does wonders for supporting muscle growth and keeping you fit and healthy, so to comfort everyones fears and gag reflex (which comes with drinking that dreaded milkshake for yet another morning), I've teamed up with USN and put together a super quick and easy pre-workout breakfast which changes the game while still giving you all that goodness and support, plus if you have a sweet tooth you will ~love~ this!

:YOU WILL NEED:
FOR THE SMOOTHIE
. 1 Banana
. 1 Beetroot
. 100g Frozen Berries
. 1 Sachet (34g) of USN Vanilla Protein Powder
. 1 TSP Nut Butter
. 1 Cup of Milk (Semi Skimmed, Almond, Oat Whichever you fancy)

:FOR THE TOPPING:
(The Choice is yours but I used)
. Toasted Coconut Shavings
. Whole Almonds
. Chia Seeds
. Granola
. Cacao Nibs
. Blueberries

:HOW TO:
1. Place all smoothie ingredients into a food processor or hand blender and mix until combined, you should have a thick, creamy mixture, if it's too runny add a bit more banana.

2. Pour your mixture into your bowl (there's enough here for two, or an afternoon snack) sprinkle with your favourite toppings and serve.

If you have followed me for a while then i'm sure you know that around 3 years ago Paul and I moved in together and I have since been inundated with questions about the house and interiors, I've never really got round to showing the inside of the house, I'm not sure why because i'm so proud of what we have made it, maybe its just the fact that it's an ongoing project and will probably never be finished or that it's our little place of privacy but with that said I thought I'd document it here and if you guys enjoy snippets into our home then I will no doubt be swayed to show more rooms, anyway, today we are in the Bedroom and although there is still art to go up on the walls, new bedside tables to be bought and bits and bobs we are pretty happy with it's progress from what was once a blank canvas.

Paul handmade the bed with his fair hands (clever huh? he has his uses) and we had the headboard made at a local wood mill, I brought my dressing table with me from my parents house because I couldn't bare to part with it although I think it will end replacing it sooner or later much to my disgust(!) As for the bedside tables, I really want new ones!!! we've looked everywhere but my god aren't they expensive? it's okay if you need one but two just kills the bank balance even more, so if you have any cheap-ish suggestions (something that isn't going to fall apart in a year) then please let me know! However I'm in love with our bedside lights from First Choice Lighting they are probably the coolest edition to the bedroom and give off such a subtle glow in the evening, LOVE THEM!! and of course we can't forget Betty & Burt, we can't keep them out of the bedroom or off the bed the little buggers! They are like a permanent fixture so they had to be included!

I hope you've all had a great week and weekend

Okay, I know everyone and their mother has eaten at YO!Sushi before and I know everyone knows how delicious it is BUT.... this is kinda a big deal for where I live.....we've only gone and had a BRAND NEW YO!Sushi open up in Worcester. I was extremely excited when I heard about my little city's new food complex and even more excited when I heard that YO! was going to be at the heart of it, obviously I was going to make a trip there at some point but I actually got invited to check out the restaurant and chow down on all the goodness so I immediately jumped at the opportunity, packed my camera (and boyfriend) and headed down.

The staff were super friendly and sat us right next to the kitchen so immediately I was in my element watching all the food being prepared and taking in all the smells which filled the room.
As normal the conveyer belt went round and in true Kate fashion I stocked up on Edamame Beans, Crispy Salmon Skin Rolls, Kaiso Seaweed and Salmon Sashimi, all of which were divine and I could quite easily rack up a hefty bill off the conveyer alone!! We ordered Beef Tataki, Hoisin Duck Bao and Furikaki Fries which if you haven't tried before you need to asap, they are coated in Sriracha mayo and sprinkled with Yuzu Furikaki, Sesame Aonori and Smokey Bonito Flakes (YUM!!)
 Everything was super fresh and tasted amazing.

As for deserts, i'm not going to lie, in all the times i've been to Yo!Sushi I have NEVER tried one of their deserts, mainly because i've been a total pig with the mains and never had room but this time I made sure I tried some and Oh my god i've been missing out! Now I'm not sure if it is on the menu in every YO! restaurant but our lovely waitress recommended a few things and the one that stood out was the Doughnut, if you have a sweet tooth you will adore this, it's like one of the Bao buns but is deep fried and filled with ice cream, caramel and pistachios... I know right, it was immense, if you get the chance to try one you must(!) We also tried the Malted Chocolate Pot which, i'm going to be honest... was far too sickly for me, sorry YO! and then finished off with the Souffle Cheesecake which was beautiful but i'm afraid to doughnut took the win and I can't wait to have another!

Overall we had an awesome night, the food was delish, the service was brilliant, the restaurant was clean and fresh and we will most certainly be heading back asap, just writing this post has made me crave some more YO! and it's a good excuse for another date night (!)

Have you visited Yo! Worcester yet? What's your favourite dish?

Life has been hectic as of late, so much to do, such little time and when it gets like this my head just fails me and everything gets a bit too overwhelming, with this being said we took a week out and headed to Devon in the camper van, we ate, we drank we frolicked along the beach and even though the majority of the holiday was spent watching the rain piss down (this was our only sunny day!!) it was just what I needed.
Anyway on a more cheerful note, how amazing is this hoody? It's from Animal's 30th Anniversary collection which I want everything from and i've got to say, I bloody LOVE it! I wore it everyday while away and i'm still wearing it now i'm home, it acted as the perfect beach cover up and i'm not going to lie I kinda felt like one of those real cool surfer girls, which i'm definitely NOT! Kate + Surfboard = Disaster (!) It's also now in the sale so hurry if you want to pick it up, you can find it HERE.

Also have you noticed i've had a bit of a blog re-vamp? The gorgeous Kotryna Bass worked her magic and I now feel like a "pro blogger" with my swanky new layout, what'cha think?

I'm going to be honest...wearing pink scares me, no matter the shade, be it bright fuchsia, baby, or even dusky, each time I put it on I feel WAY too girlie, however, when pairing it with a basic tee dress and some vans last week I managed to talk myself round to actually liking the ensemble and although i'm still weary of the colour I'm slowly coming round to the idea of introducing more of it into my wardrobe, starting with this beauty of a jacket from Chi Chi Clothing.

I can totally see this jacket dressed up with black skinnies, heels and a cami for a night on the town too, the possibilities are endless (!)

I'm going to be honest...wearing pink scares me, no matter the shade, be it bright fuchsia, baby, or even dusky, each time I put it on I feel WAY too girlie, however, when pairing it with a basic tee dress and some vans last week I managed to talk myself round to actually liking the ensemble and although i'm still weary of the colour I'm slowly coming round to the idea of introducing more of it into my wardrobe, starting with this beauty of a jacket from Chi Chi Clothing.

I can totally see this jacket dressed up with black skinnies, heels and a cami for a night on the town too, the possibilities are endless (!)

: YOU WILL NEED :

1. Preheat oven to 160(Fan), Add Sugar and Melted Butter into a mixer and cream together until you get a paste.

2. Break the Bananas into chunks and add to your paste, then add the eggs and Vanilla Paste, mix together well.

3. In another bowl add your flour and baking powder and stir together, then sieve into your wet mixture.

4. Pour mixture into a lined or greased loaf pan and bake for 60 minutes (this sounds like a long time but this was the gamechanger and where I think I was going wrong previously).

Yep you heard right, £5 for a pair of trousers (!) Where the bloody hell from I hear you cry (?)
 I will let you into a little secret and an absolute gem of a shop called Everything 5 Pounds, where yes, you guessed it, EVERYTHING is Five English Pounds (!!!!!) You may have seen them on TV recently advertising their website or you might have already heard of them and have a wardrobe full of their stuff, either way you NEED to get on the website now and pick up these awesome culottes(!)...well after you have finished reading this post (Wink,wink).

I absolutely ADORE culottes, I find them extremely easy to style wether it's for a day at work, a day out with the girls or even for a night on the town they literally go with everything in my wardrobe and I find myself reaching for them on the daily ( I also nabbed myself this black pair, you can never have too many pairs, right?) and while we are on the subject of bargains these trainers were also an absolute steal, again at £5, IKR (!) Unfortunately I have a feeling they have sold out but keep your eyes peeled as they have new stock every day, you never know what you might find and as it's so cheap, that guilty feeling of spending all of this months wages on one website isn't so bad, is it? Imagine how much you can get for your money (!)

So what are you waiting for (?) Get your bums over and get spending, i've even got a discount code for you too (thank me later) you can get an extra 5% off using the Code 'KATEFIVE' but hurry, it lasts for a limited time only (!)
Have you shopped with Everything 5 Pounds before? How was your experience?Do you agree these are the £5 Trousers every girl needs? 
Let me know what you buy, i'd love to see.
