WIAW #2

Hi Guys!

so keeping up with the trend, this is my second What Iman Ate Wednesday! teehee ๐Ÿ˜†

Before we start let me update you on my life ๐Ÿ˜‰

The job I was hoping to get…well guess what?! I’ve got a trial run! ๐Ÿ˜€ woohoo! I went to meet the Boss yesterday and he took in my C.V we talked and he was like “how old are you?’ I sort of lied and said 18(because I’m actually 17, buut I’m 18 in October so I’m “practically” 18!) hehehe and he was like “woah you’re young’ and I was like “yeah..hehehe..but the youth are eager to work hard and learn new skills!” and he was like “yes. And sometimes you’d be left alone in the shop, what do you think about that?” and I was like “I’m a fantastic Multi-tasker and I can sell anything ๐Ÿ˜‰ ”

Anyways, he says he’s going to call me for a trial run but me being optimistic, I think I’ll show that trial run who’s boss! ๐Ÿ˜†

Now back to my eats and thank you Jenn overย @ http://www.peasandcrayons.com for hosting WIAWย ๐Ÿ˜€

Peas and Crayons

Breakfast was a lovely berry smoothie bowl! my new berry-licious creation ๐Ÿ˜‰ (recipe still to come!)

Lunch was an awesome errythang salad, which I finally tried out spiralizing veggies with! Why have I never spiralized veggies before? I mean it’s amazing stuff! no jokes ๐Ÿ˜€ย  I topped it with a Japanese fusion dressing(soy sauce, lemon juice, mixed spices) and a side of rice crackers topped with avo-hummus(yummy yum yum!)

 

The redness is the spice mix! I do like things spicy ;)

The redness is the spice mix! I do like things spicy ๐Ÿ˜‰

rice-cracks-avo-humI had Les Mills Body Pump in the afternoon for an hourย and then I did about 30mins of abs and then I had dance fit for another hour which was super duper fun! And a really busy day so when I came home I was HANGRY! ๐Ÿ˜€

For dinner I whipped up a super yummy Green Monster smoothie! ๐Ÿ˜€ it was the bee’s knee’s! ๐Ÿ˜€ green monster 1So, I’ve started using Apple Cider Vinegar on my face and having it In the mornings as of yesterday in the hopes that it will help with my teenage-blemish prone skin! I’ve read some amazing reviews about it and I’ll update you all on my progress ๐Ÿ˜‰

Question: Have any of you tried Apple Cider Vinegar? Who loves smoothie’s and what’s your fav combo?!

MIMM! #2

hey hey heeey!

how are ye all today? How was your weekend? what did you get up to?(Leave a comment and let lil ol’ me know!)

So, my weekend was fabulous! and very very chilled, like super duper chilled ๐Ÿ˜€

Today I’ll be linking up with Katie over at http://www.healthydivaeats.com to share the marvelousness in my Montag(I love German and learned it for 2 years, also my baby sis is of German origin! didn’t you know? I had to drop it when I moved back to S.A and had to take up Afrikaans again, but I hope to pick it up again when I go to Uni)

MiMM MIMM #95  On the Move, Yoga Filled, and Heart Opening Weekend

Let me first just explain why my weekend was so fantastical and chilled! I finally had a chance to read and not just any old reading but a full Sunday of pure, undisturbed reading time! Just me in my room-alone! ๐Ÿ˜€ (Yes, I do like to chill alone…I like me time!) ๐Ÿ˜‰

My Monday has been amazeballs! why?…

I’ve been thinking about getting a job for a while now! It may not be the wisest choice when I’m in matric but I work good under pressure and I like to be Independent- I don’t always wanna ask my mum for money like I’m a mommy’s girl! I never use to have to as I’ve practically had a job since I was 13yrs old! I’ve bought most of my clothes, paid for my nights out, Taxi’s,ย entertainment etc etc! SO since not having a job I’ve been having to ask my mum(only when truly desperate would I ask though) for a wee bit of cash here and there. Anywho! So I was nervous about it but today when at the mall I saw a sign that was labelled ‘Casuals wanted!’..Confused at first I walked in and was like “Hi! I just read the sign outside and it said casuals wanted? Does that mean normal human beings like me?!” they laughed and were like ‘Yes! we need people indefinitely!’ and I was like ‘Brilliant! then could I leave my number and bring my CV by tomorrow? :D’ and we got wrapped in conversation about Dancing, the fact that the boss is a little difficult, tolerance and all this! ๐Ÿ˜€ anyways, I’ve practically almost got it! HOLD YOUR FINGERS CROSSED FOR ME! and I’ll ask baby Gandhi for his guidance and watchful/hopeful eye ๐Ÿ™‚

I re-stocked my Almond Milk supply and this time I bought Almond Vanilla Coconut(A flavour I haven’t tried) and I’m super duper excited to try it! teehee!

My breakfast this morning was marvellous! I made a delicious smoothie bowl! who just adores an ice-cream like texture to their smoothie bowls? I can’t unless it’s like ice-creamy texture ya’know! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜† Recipe soon to come! ๐Ÿ˜‰

What else was marvellous in my Monday was going to the Nike store to check out the leggings and shorts I’ve been dreaming about! I’m going to the Nike outlet later on this week to go potentially buy myself shorts and leggings! I’ve been yearning for them!

What else is marvellous in my Monday is that if I get the job(Which I am keeping optimistic and positive that I will get it!) I need to go on a proper shopping trip to get that retail girl style ๐Ÿ˜‰ and style for life! so I’ve asked my dad to take me shopping ๐Ÿ˜€ why? because his style is on point and I trust his advice( He helped design my Prom dress :D) So I’m very excited about that! teehee!

Lastly what else is marvellous in my Monday are all the amazing links and blog posts I’ve been reading! Such as Amanda @ runningwithspoons.com post about her link love(http://www.runningwithspoons.com/2014/04/27/link-love-427/)! and Alison overย @ http://www.dailymovesandgrooves.com and her post about fantastic fats(http://www.dailymovesandgrooves.com/2014/04/28/fantastic-fats/) – Seriously you should check those links out! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hope you had a lovely day and weekend!

Question: What did you get up to over the weekend? What was marvellous in your Monday?

Lots of live! Xx Imzie! ๐Ÿ˜‰ โคMy blog signiture

 

 

Five Things Friday #1!

Five Things Friday Fri_Favs

So this is my first Five things Friday thanks to Clare @ Fitting It All In and my first Friday favs courtesy of Katie @ running 4 cupcakes, so I thought it only fitting to name my week an adventure of trying out new things! If you’ve seen my previous posts you’d find it quite fitting, no?

1- I am sharing with you a new discovery or creation really! I call it Yumballz- why? why such a ridonculous name you ask? why because not only is it yummy! but it is also in a bowl! ๐Ÿ˜† hahaha! ingenious ๐Ÿ˜‰

yumballz 1

How do you make this bowl of crazy deliciousness you ask? well let me share a lil secret with you..it’s so easy you could ask your blindfolded monkey to do it! yes..bananie my monkey even did it for me! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜†

What you need-

  • Handful or 2 handfuls of your fav cereal as the base,
  • Handful or 2 handfuls of raisins,
  • Half a paw-paw peeled and chopped,
  • Handful or 2 handfuls of almonds and then cover with your milk of choice! and voila, a delicious bowl of oh soo much goodness ๐Ÿ˜‰

2- I am now loving gym shorts, I don’t know why? I have never dared to wear shorts before just-cause you know? like literally you won’t believe me but I’ve worn shorts maybe twice in my life in public ๐Ÿ˜ฏ :/ yeaah awkward! I’ve just never had the confidence but lately I’ve been tempted to rock a pair at the gym and out…I donno though!

Img source-https://i1.wp.com/media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/236x/12/2a/9c/122a9cc1acb69f2731a420947e33c89f.jpg

3- Heels, I wanna rock a pair of heels with my jeans like the Jenner sisters ๐Ÿ˜€ I just don’t know if I have enough guts to do it just-cause ๐Ÿ˜† and I am yearning for some PB2! WHY CAN’T S.A STOCK IT, life isn’t the same without it’sย variety giving goodnessย ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

 

4- It’s meant to be spring or autumn or whatever but instead it feels like winter! Global warming much- jokes aside ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ฏ But on a real level, is anyone else noticing the shift in terms of temperature and that? I mean I’m not a crazy doomsday prepperย  but I sure wish I had one as a mate JUST IN CASE lol ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜€ I laugh because I’m not joking, Iman no likey!

5- The Amazing Spiderman 2 is out today! whoohoo whoohoo, I’m a spidey-fan alright ๐Ÿ˜† Don’t judge ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m going to go see it with the lil brother and that boy I’m always on about(the friends with benefits one) will be there too with his crew and I adore his older brother! he reminds me of Goofy from that Micky Mouse series!

Anywho! hope Yoll are having an eventful Friday! xx Imzie

 

Thrusday Thoughts-Thinking out loud #1

Thinking-Out-Loud2Let me take a #Selfie!

Anybody else been jamming to that new song? ๐Ÿ˜† I have anyways! hehe, since hearing it, it’s BEEN on replay in my head so when I look at people all I can hear is “Let Me Take A Selfie” what is this ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜€ LOL

So this is my first Thinking out loud- courtesy of the lovely Amanda@ runningwithspoons ๐Ÿ™‚

1- I just realized in my WIAW post I talk about this product called Nuun but I don’t explain what it is :shy: teehee! Brunette syndrome, my mind works faster than my fingers so I thought I already elaborated on it ๐Ÿ˜‰ Well Nuun is like this rehydration tablet that you pop into your bottle/glass of water, it fizzes for a bit and infuses flavour into the water and contains all this electrolytes and what-not! The flavour I picked was really average and not at all that tasty so that’s why I gave it a pass but I am willing to try it again- Maybe a different flavour?

2- It is suppose to be Springย in South Africa but instead it feels like Winter! Can I get a ‘Global Warming’ Much? ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

3- I watched the Escape plan last night with my familia and t’was awesome! I was bit apprehensive about Sylvester and Arnold but waahaay I thought it was soo kick-ass ๐Ÿ˜† don’t judge till you watch it- what I learned last night ๐Ÿ˜‰

4- I made an amazing kiwi-nana smoothie this morning- it was de-li-cious ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜† :-p

5- I love tea.

6- I’m on holiday now but my English teacher(as well as all my other teachers) advised us to do some revision and work during the holidays..so guess what I did…our English task, read over what we were suppose to read over for Life Orientation(the point was? :confused: is what I thought!) it feels good to be productive!

7- Nike makes the best motivational video’s! like OH-MA-BABY-GANDHI they are good ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

8- These are fun, I like talking bumbly-bee random stuff ๐Ÿ˜€

9- Went to gym with my sister today, it was quite eventful..it was her first time back to gym in like a year ๐Ÿ˜† she exclaimed that a)-She needs to stop smoking and b)-She nearly died, I comforted her and said “If it don’t hurt, you aint doing it right’- exactly like that ๐Ÿ˜† !

10- I am soo excited to see The Amazing Spider man this weekend! aaah I’m an obsessed fan ๐Ÿ˜€

Well that’s all from me! any thoughts you’d like to share out loud? anything funny happen to you? Chat soon! Xx Imzie

My first WIAW!

 

 

Hi guys!

so today I decided to do something different!…my first What ‘Iman’ ate Wednesday!- convenient no? that there happens to be an I and my name starts with an I! ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜€

so this week so far has been pretty awesome! On Monday it was a public holiday so BodyPump and BodyCombat was cancel

led and I didn’t realise that until I got to gym ๐Ÿ˜ฆ rather than being discouraged I decided to just do my usual workout and it went amazing! seriously! don’t you just love those workouts? and let’s not lie, when someone starts doing the same exercise next to you, it automatically becomes a competition ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜‰

For brekkie I enjoyed a filling and delicious bowl of All Bran Flakes topped with Raw Granola and Almond Breeze Almond Coconut flava-flav! it was delicious..ooo so delicious man! need to do a review on the Almond Breeze product soon; it adds a whole new dimension to the meal we call breakfast! it becomes sexfest in your mouth(excuse the explicitness) ๐Ÿ˜€

Brekkie! :) yumballz

Brekkie! ๐Ÿ™‚ yumballz

 

My weekend was amazing! teehee, I didn’t plan to go outย  but on Saturday I decided why not and went out with my older sister and a bunch of friends- I ended up getting home at about 4am ๐Ÿ˜ฏ ๐Ÿ˜† :D! I also met new people whom are now like my mates hehehehe ๐Ÿ˜‰

Johannesburg-20140420-01026

Johannesburg-20140420-01028Snack was Apples and PB- this snack reminds me of PB2 which I’m out of and so is the store that supplies it as it was like a once off thing for them- so sooo sad ๐Ÿ˜ฅ anyone wanna give me a jar of that powdered crack :(… heheheheapples and PB

 

I also went to Bikram Yoga with my Older Brother this weekend- not part of my gym- so I can only really go if he goes or my mum does(they can drive and I can’t!) hehehe<that’s a sad laugh ๐Ÿ˜€ at the studio there was this new product called nuun and I decided to try it(spot a trend, I enjoy trying new things!) I tried the strawberry lemonade and found it quite average but maybe I just need to try a different flavour?!

Lunch was an awesome salad! In the mix iceberg lettuce, rocket, basil, cucumber, tomatoes balsamic vinegar and rice cakes with avo-hummus on the side(unpictured);unch-cucumber salad

I’m still filling in University Applications but it’s no biggy! hehehe ๐Ÿ˜€ what else that’s cool that occurred was that today I went to Dance Fit and it was my first time at this class anyways and after class the teacher came up to me and was like- ‘Are you a dancer or have you danced before?’ and I was like :shy: ‘yes..I use to dance hip-hop and contemporary’ and she was like ‘Really! I thought so, I can just tell when someone’s a dancer, I could smell the dancer on you!’ and I get really nervous and awks when people compliment me so I was like ‘hehe! yeah…’ and she was like ‘well I think you’re an amazing dancer! and have you ever done any competitions?’ and I was like ‘no…’ and she got all excited and was like ‘Well when you want to enter the dance world again let me give you my number and I we’ll talk’ and I was all like ‘ooh wow, yeah that would be awesome!’ ๐Ÿ˜€ she’s also leaving for Italy soon though to compete in some international dance competition but I was so flattered and left the gym buzzing!

Snack was a deli-li-licious nak’d food bar(picture recycled)nakd food bar

Dinner was another salad but a mix of everything possible that I can’t even recall, I was just so hungry that I threw a bunch of ish together! hehehe ๐Ÿ˜€

Obligations

AAH the big ‘OB’ word…see I know we all have very different obligations and responsibilities and one that I’ve seen pretty often is bloggers obligation towards their blog!

Now because I have an obligation towards my blog, does that mean I have to post something new Everyday? Every-Second day? Once a week?..hmmm

I don’t think, like many things in life, there is a specific amount or definite answer to the questions I often ask myself! what if sometimes I don’t have anything to blog about or talk to you guys about?

To be honest I believe that it doesn’t matter how many times a week I post as I don’t think it makes you a great blogger! I obviously want to keep in touch with all my readers but Life does get busy and I also sometimes just have nothing to post about and I’d rather post about cool, fun experiences and new news and what-not than just randomly post about nothing really!

I hope you guys are okay with that?

Love you all loads!

Imzie xx

Tuesday Thoughts!

Hey Hey Guys!

Phwa life has been busy, like really busy! I finished writing pre-prelims and on Wednesday we get our results-eeek! I’m praying to baby Gandhi I did well as I enter university on these results for temporary acceptance…so if Iman doesn’t do well she doesn’t get to go to the University she wants to go to ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Speaking of University, I’ve been filling out my University applications and once I get my report on Wednesday I can send them through-woohoo! ๐Ÿ˜€Randburg-20140414-01020I’ve been up to the usual though i.e School work, copious amounts of tea, gym and shopping ๐Ÿ˜‰

Tea at school yum!

Tea at school yum!

Friends at school- Culture day means no school uniform!

Friends at school- Culture day means no school uniform!

Tea at home! teehee

Tea at home! teehee

Actually on Saturday I had a mother-daughter day and went shopping! t’was super super fun! and lovely to spend some time with my mum ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve been doing Les Mills for a couple weeks now at the gym and it’s awesome! I do Body Pump, Body Combat, Grit Strength and Shibam! I’ve really been enjoying the change in my workout routine and I’m getting kick-ass muscle definition ๐Ÿ˜‰

What else is new is the situation I am in…friends with benefits…I’m sure you guys know what that is so I don’t exactly have to explain it! ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s not a ‘new’ situation per say.. but it has now been officially ‘defined’ and it works for me to be honest! Him and I are great friends, besties really(no this isn’t the guy I went to the matric dance with!) and we have so many things in common but I don’t see the point in dating so this is what we’ve decided to do. The only thing is, I’m TERRIFIED of hurting him or getting hurt even-What do you guys think of the whole FWB(friends with benefits)?

I’m sooo excited for this weekend, I’m going to be having a proper fun weekend filled with friends, good music and a hella fun! teehee ๐Ÿ˜€

I tried out Almond Breeze Vanilla and Almond Breeze Chocolate last week..Oh my BABAY GANDHI! it adds a whole new dimension to breakfast, absolutely scrumptious and addictive! it is pricey though but uugh it’s yummy! ๐Ÿ˜€

I need to find a job soon for the holidays, I like to keep busy so I need something productive to do and it’s an added bonus that I’ll be getting cash!

I also found out I sometimes don’t have a filter! CRINGE# the little imanies in my mind work faster than my mouth so sometimes I just blurt whatever is being intellectually produced! for example: On Sunday I took my lil bro and his friend to get a take-away drink from this joint called ‘Dopio Zero’ and one of the staff there accidentally tripped and hit my lil brothers friend’s ass ๐Ÿ˜ฎ and she was so embarrassed and started apologising and what-not and I was like ‘haha! it’s chilled! just a lil grab there huh ;)’..now bear in mind this lady was like 50 years old and my lil bro’s friend is 16….hahaha! she literally cringed and ‘her face was like ‘! hahaha, it was pretty awkward but I laughed my awkwardness off anyways..as perusal!

I really need to be more mindful of the things I say ๐Ÿ˜€

Anyways! what did you guys get up to? How’s your week going?

Xx Imzie!
