Adrenaline: It’s Good For You.

Adrenaline is something that washes over our bodies in a huge wave and releases large amounts of epinephrine. This is a hormone that essentially increases the circulation of blood to your muscles and brain. When the rush starts to happen, your heart will start beating faster, and you will experience excitement, fear, nerves, trepidation, and exhilaration.

Sometimes in life, we crave a bit of adrenaline because maybe we’re not getting enough excitement. So here are a few examples of how you can bring some into your life.

 

High-intensity exercises

If you perform high-intensity exercises, they will kickstart your adrenal glands. This is because certain exercises put a slight stress on the body, so you produce higher levels of epinephrine. Having said that, it’s important you don’t overo this too much; otherwise, you can send your body into overdrive.

 

Climb up the mountains

Whether you decide to trek up a steep hill with your bare feet, or you hop in a truck and try a little rock crawling with vehicles from 10trailtrucks, the act itself will push you to get that rush because of the high altitude and difficulty. They trigger the release of epinephrine production, but without having to put too much stress onto any adrenal glands.

 

Fun trips out

Take time out to plan a trip full of exciting activities like skydiving, white water rafting, or even a day out at an amusement park and go on all the fast and scary rides. These will cause you to feel slightly fearful but also exhilarated, which is an absolute natural form of defense that your mind creates, and that then produces more epinephrine.

 

Participate in sports

The good thing about sports is that you not only get fit and active, but you are also made to work with other people as a team, and this in itself has its own benefits. But another thing about it is there are often competitions that include spectators, and this plays a big role in having your body release the epinephrine hormone because you are being put under pressure to perform well. Along with feeling excited and ready to win.

 

Fall in love

Without sounding all romantic, falling in love is an amazing feeling, because it’s delving into the unknown with someone that you care for. You’re accepting your emotions even though you don’t know what the future holds. Your heart will race, and you will experience a feeling of euphoria. This then creates adrenaline, along with many other hormones too, that all essentially make you feel on top of the world.

 

So as you can see, there are plenty of ways that you can trigger that incredible hormone to release itself. It all just depends on what you’re comfortable doing. But any kind of option to cause adrenaline to show up will always involve a certain amount of risk, whether that be a physical one or a mental one. So think about what you want to do, and then enjoy that rush that your body will receive.

Until next time, it’s The Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way.

The Gentlemen’s Curb

Everyone is passionate about something, and that passion is usually first discovered when we are pretty young. It could be drawing, writing, singing, acting, caring for others, baking, building, or anything else. As amazing as it is to be passionate about something, there are so many people on the planet that don’t pursue the thing that they love and instead wind up in a job that completely sucks the life out of them. There are so many reasons for this, like having children, or your passion not really being considered a “real job”. Well, whatever your reason, I’m here to tell you to stop. Here are three reasons why you should pursue your passion.

 

You’ll Feel Amazing

People stop spending their time on their passions for a number of reasons and usually end up wasting this time in one way or another (usually in front of the tv). Doing something more productive, like honing your talent and pursuing your passion will make you feel much better about yourself in the long run. Furthermore, if you’ve known what your passion is since you were really young, you’ll have had this entire time to perfect your talent and skill, so I’d imagine that you are fairly good at it at this point. This can help to massively build your self-esteem. This is because it feels amazing doing something knowing that you’re good at it.

The Internet Makes It Easier

Okay, while the internet might not necessarily make becoming the new Jamie Oliver or John Legend a simple task, it does make it a lot easier than it was without it. On the internet, you can find lots of advice to help you improve your passion and help turn it into a career. With websites like Youtube it is now easier than ever to get your music noticed, and then you can use a company like Nationwide to make your music physical. If you’re into writing, you can get your stories and poems out there in a few simple clicks, and you can easily post pictures of your culinary masterpieces on social media.

You Only Live Once

In the grand scheme of things, you are only on the Earth for an incredibly short period of time, so why would you want to spend any of this time doing anything other than what you love? You never know what could happen tomorrow, and the last thing that you want is to leave this planet wondering what could have happened if you’d done what you truly loved. Pursuing your passion will help you to feel like you’ve lived a full and accomplished life, regardless of anything else that has happened along the way. Your passion will also help you to make a mark in the world and will ensure that you’re known for something that wants to be remembered for, rather than the job that you hated. It doesn’t matter how old you are or where you come from, if there’s something that you love to do, don’t let anything convince you not to do it. Live your life to the fullest. 

It’s the Gentlemen’s Curb, a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way.

Evan The Show

It’s been a while since we had a guest on our blog. I am happy that you stopped by. If you haven’t had the chance to check out our interview with Scott Bayliss, you can read that here. It was our first interview and hopefully won’t be our last interview.

We sat down with Evan Spaulding also known as Evan The Show of MTV’s show “Grossbusters.” Keep reading to learn more about Evan and what are his daily routines and future plans!

Evan The Show

1. Where are you from?

I was raised in Newark, NJ

2. If you don’t mind sharing with our readers, what is your height?  What are your clothing sizes and measurements?

I’m 5 ‘10. Waistline 44. Dress shirt 18 1/2 neck 34/36. T-shirts 2x. Shoe size 11.5

3. What made you decide to get into acting and share your content with the world?

I don’t really consider myself an actor. I’m definitely an entertainer. I host events and I’ve had an opportunity to host an MTV Show.

What made me start sharing my content with the world would have to be the reactions I get from people after putting it out! Most people say I put them in a positive mood and even change their day! I love being that person!

4. How does it feel to represent men of size? What are your perspectives?

Men of size? I love that! Honestly, I’ve been a big guy my entire life. It’s all I know! I feel like I’m a pretty awesome representative. In the past, people have had this image of what men of size look like. There’s a whole lot of microaggressions I’d like to eliminate like, “You’re handsome for a big guy” or “You can dress for your size!”

5. In your opinion, do men of size have enough representation in the mainstream media?

Enough representation? Yes! I feel like it’s a misrepresentation though! Men of size almost always have to be the comic relief, just a friend and never the love interest (without humor) or portrayed as sexy in tv/ film/print! Are we not worthy of a Calvin Klein ad?

6. Walk us through a day in your life?

Every day I start my day with prayer. Record my Instagram content called “Evan On Everything,” I listen to something motivational on YouTube, a conversation with my manager Kyree and my days pretty much vary after that. One day might include filming interviews, being interviewed, going to an audition or a meeting. Every day includes creating of some sort!

7. ‎What led you to the host “GrossBusters?”

I wasn’t really looking for the opportunity. It kind of just came to me. At the time I was just creating funny videos on YOUTUBE and Facebook and doing a whole lot of background work on shows like Jessica Jones, Broad City & Luke Cage.

8. ‎How did you land that opportunity?

I was asked to audition to host MTV’s Grossbusters. An agency called “The House That Casting Built” reached out to me about it. They sent me a breakdown of what the show was supposed to be, I self-taped and here I am!

9. Is there anything that you want the readers to know about you?

Not Really… lol! You could always follow me on social media!  I share a whole lot of myself and my life experiences on there. It’s @evantheshow all across the board.

10. What do you have lined up next?

Currently, I host a show called “The News Rant!” The concept is pretty simple. We hand pick some amazing people to rant on things that have happened in the last 7 days. It airs every Friday at noon on EvanTheShow.com!

Does A Large Body Size Really Offer Extra Protection-The Gentlemen’s Curb XL Influencer

Does A Large Body Size Really Offer Extra Protection

Once again it’s The Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way.  We focus on a lot of issues that men of size deal with. As a larger guy, you’ll know that other people tend to see you as invincible. Celebrity bodyguards, for example, are almost always big, broad, powerful-looking guys; if you resemble this kind of physique, you’ll find that most people expect you to be Tough with a capital T. Couple this with the gross (but sadly frequently thought) idea that black people just don’t feel pain like white people do, and you’ll find the public perception of you is that you’re pretty much indestructible.

It’s not true though, is it? (In many cases it’s absolutely true, but here are some things to look out for.)

Physical size isn’t enough to make someone feel safe, and that feeling is backed up with the statistics. Men are more likely to be assaulted or robbed than women; black people are more likely to experience violent crime than whites. So you’re stuck in a world that sees you as invincible, but actually is more likely to victimize you. Essentially, you can’t win.

So what can you do about it?

#1 – Protect yourself, especially when traveling

We all know that when we travel, we’re more likely to fall victim to issues such as mugging or pickpocketing. However, when we travel, we’re also more likely to be relaxed, and not quite as on our guard as we should be.

As a result of this, it’s always wise to make sure that you cover the need to protect yourself, and your belongings when you’re out of the country. Debate with yourself on the areas that are safe to visit in your vacation country, as well investing in a way to store valuables on your person without them being a target for thieves. On this note, many travelers find themselves debating whether to buy Neck Wallet or Money Belt products; both can be useful, and both offer higher levels of protection of your valuables than just carrying items in your pockets.

The above also applies to everyday life; taking steps to protect yourself and your valuables is never a bad idea.

 

#2 – Project confidence

The vast majority of muggers and thieves will target people that they perceive to be — for want of a better word — “weak”. While your size may disqualify you from this category for some muggers, don’t rely on it. “Weakness” is also projected in people who look shy, nervous, and unsure; so learn to walk tall with your head held high, calmly observing the world around you– odd as it may sound, this genuinely will help protect your own safety.

#3 – Don’t be afraid to ask for help

 

If you’re feeling vulnerable, nervous, or like you’re under threat, then talk to someone about it. Sure, you might be confronted with an ignoramus who wonders why “a big guy like you feels worried” (we’ve all heard it), but your size and gender do not exclude you from concerns about your own well-being. Never, ever be afraid to ask for assistance if you need it, or just give yourself a few minutes to calm down and center yourself if you’re feeling overwhelmed. You’re a big guy, not an emotionless drone.

 

In conclusion

 

Hopefully, you have found the information above useful and can you use the ideas to help maintain your safety at all times. Regardless of size, some people may see you as a target.

Discovering that you’re going to be a father is an outright strange period in your life. On one hand, you’re probably delighted: you’re going to pass on the family genes and have a child of your own to raise. On the other hand, you’re absolutely terrified when you contemplate just how much your life is about to change.

Don’t worry: both of these reactions are absolutely normal. It’s possible to be both excited and overwhelmed; delighted and dubious. You’ve got nine months to get yourself, and your life, into shape before you take the role of father– so you’re going to need an action plan.

How much does life change when you become a father?

In some ways, your life will change absolutely. Many new fathers experience a strange change in how they see the world; they are suddenly focused more on their child than on their own ambitions. Others don’t experience this; instead, they absorb their new role into their current life and, superficially at least, their lifestyle goes through few changes. Neither of these options is the “right” one; fatherhood is a very individual thing, and you have to work out your way of getting it right.

The changes you will definitely experience

 

It helps to know the changes you will definitely experience when you become a father. These can be set in stone, so you have some idea what to expect. Here’s a quick look at the biggest changes:

 

 

  • Your relationship with your partner. It doesn’t matter if you’ve only been together for a few months or a few decades, your relationship will change– but not necessarily for the worse.
  • Some aspects of your lifestyle. The announcement of a pregnancy is going to be a big change; you may need to move house so you can make room for a nursery, and you’ll probably need to swap your two-seater sports car for the likes of a Subaru Forester so you can fit a car seat. These changes are substantial and stressful, so you may need to take time to adjust to the rapid pace at which your life changes.
  • Your time. You can expect to have less free time when you’re a father, so the duration of the pregnancy is a good opportunity to catch up with friends you might struggle to meet with over the next few years.

 

The emotional changes

 

Becoming a father isn’t just about the practicalities. Many men struggle with the emotional toll of fatherhood, and it’s important you allow yourself to feel these emotions. Fatherhood is a huge change, and you’re going to need to mentally ready yourself for it.

 

  • It can be beneficial to have a couple of sessions with a therapist during the pregnancy, just to ensure that your mind is on an even keel before your baby’s arrival.
  • You’ll also want to spend some time securing your support network of family and friends, because you’re likely to need them during the first few month’s of your baby’s life.

 

So remember…

 

It’s okay to feel scared or nervous about the idea of becoming a father. Take the time to go through the steps above, consider the whole picture, and make the changes you have to make. Ultimately, you’ll discover that fatherhood does change your life– but it’s for the better. Until next time, it’s The Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way.

Low carbohydrate, high fat diets might sound like the enemy of all the weight shredding diet plans you’ve ever heard of or tired, but any one of them could work for you.

Yes, any one of these overindulgence diets, with include the Ketogenic diet, the Banting diet and the Atkins diet, could work for you simply because they are viable forms of weight shredding that don’t demand you to be overly strict with yourself — strictness, more often than not, be the biggest challenge diets face.

Scientifically, these sorts of diets work through the way they teach your body to burn fat as energy rather than carbs, ultimately meaning that the more fat you eat the more you will stand to burn off as you move about throughout your day.

So, don’t be afraid to embrace LCHF diets, despite them sounding as if they should be the complete opposite of what you should be doing!

Always eat big at breakfast

 

If you really want to get the best out of any overindulgence/LCHF diet that you attempt then you’re going to do two things: you’re going have to go big with every meal you sit down to eat and you’re going to have to ensure that every meal that you indulge in is low in carbohydrates.

 

And one meal that you should focus on particularly when it comes to doing this is breakfast. Yes, you should go big at breakfast, even when you’re not even that hungry because this meal sets you up for the whole day ahead. And, in order to fill yourself with enough fat to see you through the day and with enough fat to burn off as you see this day through, then you’re going to make sure your breakfasts are always big in fat and low in carb. So, don’t be afraid to have a bit of bacon, even when it’s not the weekend!

The missing piece to your fat burning quest may just be overindulgence, so start overindulging! But, when you do, make sure you are taking take extra care with every meal that you prepare in order to ensure no carbs are slipping onto your plate unseen and unaccounted for. If that were to happen whilst you were overindulging on fatty foods you wouldn’t shed any weight, you’d put it on! So, overindulge, but overindulge in a mindful and tactical way.

And, make sure you are working out as often as you can, too, despite your busy schedule. Until next time, it’s the Gentlemen’s Curb where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way. Feel free to email us kavah.king@gentlemenscurb.com

It’s the Gentlemen’s curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way. I want to share some information about building your self-esteem. Even the most confident of people can suffer from self-esteem lows every now and again. It’s just one of those things that life seems to throw at us. Whether you’re having a bad day, or you just feel as if you’re not at your best, self-doubt can start to creep in. While you may never be able to go a day without this happening again, you can make them as minimal as possible. When it comes to working on your self-esteem, you often think that you have to change in order to be happy. But that’s not necessarily the best cure. You’re not feeling your best because of external factors, and they’re starting to drag you down – and it’s that you need to cure.

 

First of all, you’re going to want to identify what’s causing your dip in confidence. When you’re able to see what’s bringing you down, you can control it. Because you, as you as, are great. You don’t have to change anything about who you are as a person; you just need to work on how you feel about yourself. Think of it as being you, but better – the very best version of yourself. So rather than think that you need to change your look, how you act, or what you believe in, you just need to work on you. To help you do that, here are ten different ways you can look to top up your self-esteem.

 

Stop Comparing Yourself

 

First of all, we’re going to address something that so many of us do – whether we think we do, or like to admit it or not. And that’s comparing ourselves. It’s a natural occurrence, especially in this social media age. We often compare where we are in life, with where others are – or what they have, or what they look like. It’s something that you may even do subconsciously. Because we can never really compare ourselves to others, because we walk different paths. All this will do is bring you down. But when you stop, you’ll find that you can walk your own path and continue to make it great.

 

Don’t Fit The Mold

 

When you compare yourself, you may feel the pressure to be like others. But this is only ever going to harm your self-esteem. It can lead you to feel unworthy. Instead, you’re going to want to focus on that personal path of yours and stick to it. You don’t have to be a clone of someone else or work to their rules. Be bold and make your own!

Embrace Who You Are

 

It’s at this point that you need to learn to embrace the person that you are. When you accept everything about yourself, from your strengths and weaknesses to your looks and your shape, you will start to feel more confident. At the same time, you need to get to know yourself. The things that you like and that you re are important here, so begin to understand yourself. It will help you to stay true to yourself.

 

Pursue Your Passions

 

As you start to feel more comfortable in your own skin, and love who you are as a person, you’ll be able to find out what you love most in life. By uncovering your passions, you can then start to pursue them. Whether it’s a career path, a hobby, or a way of life, as you start to follow your own path, your self-esteem will naturally rise.

Try Out Mindfulness

 

While the four steps above are incredibly important for keeping you grounded and happy in yourself, you may find that external sources still try to knock your calm. Because stress can come in a whole range of forms, and threaten to take you down again. To counteract this, try out the mindfulness techniques in Selfication.com guide. Mindfulness can be a great way to cope with the stress and pressures life throws at us.

 

Focus On Your Health

 

From here, you’re then going to want to start focusing on you. And not only does this mean your happiness, but your health too. You’re doing something for your mental health with mindfulness, but you will need to start looking after your body as much as possible, and fitness can help with that. Not to change your body or fit the mold, but to be healthy for you!

 

Invest In Your Wardrobe

 

As much as self-esteem is feeling and mind-related, you can influence how you feel by focusing on how you look. Sometimes, it’s a simple as dressing well to feel good. So treat yourself. Whether that’s something custom from Chookhare.com or a few new basis from your favorite store. By investing in your wardrobe, you’re investing in you and your confidence.

 

Prioritize Your Grooming

 

From clothing to taking care of yourself, you’re also going to want to make sure that you have your grooming routine down. Because you’re always going to feel better when you take care of yourself. By finding a routine that works for your, you’ll get a mini confidence boost every morning.

Spend Time With Positive People

 

Next, you need to think about your social life. Because if your network is mainly negative, this will affect your self-esteem too. Instead, you need to surround yourself with positive people. The benefits of this, as Success.com suggest, are incredible. When you have good people in your life, their attitude rubs off on you, they champion you, and it helps you to believe in yourself too. So surround yourself with positive people and role models with similar outlooks and interest as you.

 

Take Time Of For Yourself

 

And above all else, you have to make sure that you’re putting yourself first. This means taking some time out, relaxing and resting, and staying away from stress as much as possible. Because if you’re stressed out all of the time, it will heavily impact on your self-esteem. So start to put yourself first, and combined with everything else, you should find the confidence levels you’ve always wanted.

It’s the Gentlemen’s Curb where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way, until next time.

We Are Back!

We are back! It’s the Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way. We give fashion, fitness and lifestyle tips usually to men of size. But for this post in particular, here are tips for ALL men. I was raised up not celebrating Valentine’s Day, but I put some thought and consideration into this post for men and women that do celebrate this day. With Valentine’s Day approaching, you might be thinking about what to get your other half. And while many people know that they don’t need one specific day a year to show love to their other half, having an excuse to be a little more romantic and generous has got to be a good thing. So if you’re not sure what to get, here are some of the things that your man may want.

Tech Gifts

There is nothing that works better for a millennial man than some technology to add to their arsenal. And there are more and more things out there to choose from. You could choose a Google Home or an Amazon Echo for a fun gadget to have around the house. You could even get them something like the North Face Etip gloves so that they can still use their smartphone and wear their gloves (great if your other half is a commuter, for instance). Of course, if you’re feeling flashy, a new camera or tablet would always go down well.

Bathroom Products

Taking care of yourself is something that more and more men need to get on board with. So some bathroom products to help him take care of himself a little more can be a good idea. It could be anything from the best selling face wash for men, to lotions, aftershave, or a beard trimmer. Just think about what might work best for him and then go from there. There are so many luxury brands to choose from that it can be a good choice for a gift.

 

Experience Day

Sometimes, having a physical gift isn’t always needed. Instead, it could be an experience for him to try. How about a track racing day or a hot air balloon ride? It could even be something extreme like bungee jumping or a skydive. Don’t forget, an experience to gift your man could be a music concert or theatre tickets, with the bonus that you can get to enjoy them together. So if there is something he has always wanted to do or see, then why not make it happen for him?

 

Gadgets

Along the same lines as tech, a gadget can be a good gift idea for valentine’s day. It could be something he can have lots of fun with like a remote control drone, or how about a Fitbit activity tracker to keep his new year goals on track? There are plenty of gadgets for every taste.

Date Night

If you haven’t had a special date night in a while, then simply planning one for him on (or around) valentines can be a really special treat. It doesn’t always have to be about the physical gifts that you give to each other; sometimes it is about the time that you spend together. So if you’re on a budget or want to make the day extra special, then planning something for the two of you can be a great way to spend the day.

Guess what world, some of us are large and proud! We don’t feel like we are on a constant mission to shed the extra pounds to feel better about ourselves. In fact, we feel pretty great just as we are. However, but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to better ourselves in other ways either. Happily, there are many more interesting self-development projects to work on than losing weight. Read on to see what some of the best ones are.

 

Starting your own business

 

One way to better yourself is to start your own business. This can be a challenging but satisfying project and one that can not only provide practical experience but if you do it right improve your financial situation as well. Of course, to get your business off of the ground, you will need some funding. Something that it’s pretty easy to get now via routes like paypal.com working capital, or crowdfunding sites. Just make sure you have a clear plan and predicted returns so you can make a strong case to whomever you are applying for funding to.

Learn a new skill

 

If being an entrepreneur isn’t your style, what about dedicating yourself to learning a new skill instead? There are so many to choose from you are bound to find something that interests you. You may pick something physical and learn to do parkour, fence, or even horse ride? After all, physical activity is known to be a fantastic mood boost, as well as being fun at the time too.

You may be feeling the creative vibe and want to pick up a musical instrument like the drums, guitar or even piano. Alternatively, if you are more of a visually creative person then learning to draw still life, portraits, or abstract paintings may be the perfect betterment activity for you. Something you can find out more about doing at apartmenttherapy.com

 

You may even want to pick an area that relates more directly to the job that you are doing and learn something like web design, or project management. Then, not only do you get the satisfaction of seeing a project through to completion, but you will have something additional to add to your resume for the next post you apply for that will help you stand out above the other applicants.

Give back to the community

 

However, if you are truly looking to better yourself, then you should also consider doing something that helps give back to your community such as the suggestions at inc.com. It could be something as simple as organizing a crew to go out and paint some of the more run-down building in your neighborhood, or freshen up peoples’ gardens.

 

You could also choose to work with some of the less advantaged people in your area that need a friendly face and helping hand. This might be kids from poorer families, homeless folks, or those with addiction problems. Even people that don’t fit neatly into a category like this can sometimes do with a little help, and by helping them, you can learn many valuable skills to better yourself. Including empathy, something you can find out more about at psychologytoday.com, as well as patience, organization, and compassion.

Until the next time, it’s The Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way.

‘Curb Your Costs And Hardly Notice!- The Gentlemen’s Curb Plus Male Influencer

In Lifestyle On The 'Curb

plus male blogger, big and tall blogger, men of size, brawn blogger, big and tall model, plus male model, gentlemenscurb, kavah king, brawn model, big and tall, brawn, plus male, king, kavah, brooklyn, new york city, brawnfit, brawnfitness, brawn fashion, big and tall fashion, plus male fashion, gentlemen, curb, plusmalefashion, plus male model, brawn model, plus size influencer, influencer, plus male influencer, xlinfluencer, xlmodel,

We have all been taught that looking good and feeling good necessarily costs you money. That you should be wearing designer clothes, changing them every season and spending a fortune on the basics. You should be buying out of season, high-end ingredients and using expensive protein shakes to build up.

 

We also know that none of this is true.

 

Looking good and feeling good doesn’t need to be expensive and there are a few ways that you can curb your costs and still have everything you need. If you are struggling with credit card debts, start with the best balance transfer credit card to ease off the interest and then set to on saving money and paying the whole debt off.

 

Here’s what you need to do:

Quit the Gym

Let’s face it – you didn’t really like the gym anyway and there are so many opportunities to get outside and do a great work out that spending money on it each month seems daft. Exercising for free doesn’t have to mean that you go solo all the time. Set up a running club or find a team sport you can join in with for free.

 

Parks are great spaces for running, creating your own interval training exercises and even designing your own personal boot camp training strategy. Get a group of guys together and you could make this outdoor gym a social thing too. There’s plenty available to you when you start looking!

Buy Fresh and Freeze

If you want to eat fresh all the time but it’s costing a fortune, then the best advice you can get is to buy and cook in bulk, then freeze batches at a time. Essentially, you are creating a whole bunch of ready meals that are perfectly balanced, healthy and delicious.

 

Frozen has always been a good money-saving tip, but it is also great for your health. You might think that fresh fruits and veggies are better for you but frozen fruit and veg is usually blanched and frozen within hours of picking, locking nutrients in.

Choose Classics You Can Wear Again and Again

Is fashion all about changing and reimagining – right? Sure, but there are also some classics that will last you for years and are well worth your investment. For example, a really great pair of jeans that fit you perfectly is always worth spending a little extra on because they will last well and weather all sorts of different fashion phases that come and go.

 

Equally, though, it is easy to accidentally over-spend on the basics when you could find the same thing but cheaper elsewhere. Sometimes the best value isn’t the designer label, it is the clothes that will last well, make you feel good and leave you with a little extra money to spend on something else.

 

However tempting it might be to spend your way to a healthy and happy lifestyle, we all know that deep down, what we really want is a good social life, a sensible diet and a sense of fulfilment. Give yourself the chance to have it all by curbing your costs and saving for the big stuff.
