Health, Happiness and a Real Hoot!


Have you got a Nutri Ninja, a Vitamix or a Kenwood?

If you have, then there’s no doubt you’ll have been bitten by the health bug and you’ll be juicing and smoothie-making like a good ‘un! For me, this won’t be a craze. It can’t be. I have to get fitter and lose weight. The shock of being OVER a certain half stone mark hit me hard this week. It can’t go on. Check out my COCONUT MANGO ENERGYADE (fresh mango, mint leave, coconut water and a squirt of honey). It’s a recipe from the Nutri Ninja booklet, or online here. Keep an eye on my social media pages for more photos of my concoctions!

My sinusitis and hayfever have been playing me up something rotten so I’m not having the best night’s sleep and been waking up very annoyed. Lovely Miceal Murphy said look out for any herbal tea with valerian root in. So I got this from an online herbal shop. It is amazing and I highly recommend it for a sound night’s sleep!


Austen and I had a blast at the Mostly Jazz Funk and Soul Festival – look at the crowds behind us. Shout-out to Purity Ales for putting Austen and I on the guest list! Public Enemy was a bit crazy on stage – took me back to good memories of being a wanna-be rebellious teenager! Check out more amazing photos here by the Official Photographer for the event

Marv and Austen

On Saturday Austen and I headed out for some sunshine. We encountered a totally fabulous art project happening in Birmingham called THE BIG HOOT – which is all about raising money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital. Check out the lovely owls we saw! People everywhere are captivated by them – they are 89 in total.

And we had time to check out the delicious food at the New Rub Smokehouse and Bar on Broad Street – we forgot to take a pic of our food because we were SO hungry. But imagine ribs and steaks rubbed in a special herbs and spices and then slow-cooked to perfection. Plus an amazing choices of beers. You’d love it. Check it out if you live in Brum or Nottingham. One of the managers told me there’ll be one opening in Liverpool soon too.
