Magic Kingdom

Magic Kingdom
So as you probably know by now, I recently visited Walt Disney World. If you'd like to read my other posts about my trip, you can find them all here!

Ah, Disney's Magic Kingdom. A place where elephants fly, Princesses reign, people queue for hours to meet a mouse... yeah I'll stop now. But I LOVE Magic Kingdom. It's very much like the Disneyland Park in Paris which may be why- plus I'm a huge Princess fan and they really do reign in Magic Kingdom.

Because I love Magic Kingdom so much, I could talk about it all day but that would be way too long for a blog post! So instead, I'm going to share with you my top things to do in Magic Kingdom. (I'll try and keep it short...) Also, this list will NOT include Character Meet'n'Greets, as you can see that here!

Dumbo the Flying Elephant
The iconic ride that you HAVE to do, Dumbo the Flying Elephant is essentially a child's ride, where you board your very own Dumbo and go "flying"! I think the Dumbo ride is one of those rides that Disney could NEVER get rid of. I love it!

Wishes Fireworks Display
Disney's gorgeous fireworks display every night at 11pm, all about wishes coming true. I found myself getting really emotional, but then I'd also just got engaged when I watched it!

Seven Dwarves Train Mine

Seven Dwarfs Train Mine
This ride opened last year in Magic Kingdom when me and Dan were there, but all the fastpasses had gone and the queues were about a 3 hour wait. This year the queues were shorter, but still were around a 1-2 hour wait, which is hilarious as the ride itself only lasts 50 seconds. It's actually the shortest ride in the Magic Kingdom! Luckily we managed to get a fastpass- it was SO worth it. It is short, but it definitely feels longer than 50 seconds and has enough thrills to keep you entertained. If you can get a fastpass, definitely do it, but maybe don't wait 2 hours for 50 seconds...
P.S, my face may be funny in the above picture but that little boy looks hilariously terrified!

Big Thunder Mountain
I'd never been on this ride before and I'm not great with fast rides so I was terrified when I went on it... but I LOVED it. I actually made Dan go on it about 5 times. My tip- go on it at night. It's so much better as it's dark so it's harder to see what's coming!

Splash Mountain
Again, an iconic Disney ride and another one I was terrified of but ended up loving! I hate drops but it's really not as bad as it seems, although it does feel like it takes forever to be over! I'd definitely recommend going on this ride!

Buzz Lightyear Space Ranger Spin
Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin
Another ride that we went on about 5 times, BECAUSE I'M SURE DAN KEPT CHEATING. Or I suck. I probably suck. But anyway, it's still so much fun using your laser gun to help Buzz defeat the evil Emperor Zurg!

I honestly could go on and on, but I will stop myself there. Writing this post has made me realise how much I miss it there already! Let me know your favourite parts of Magic Kingdom if you've visited- or what you think you would enjoy if you haven't been!

My Recent Baking Haul!

Sometimes I like to do things that I see other bloggers do a lot, and add a little cakey twist- like I did recently with my Cakey Wishlist! So when I recently treated myself to a few small baking bits, I thought I'd write a haul post! (Which funnily enough, doesn't feature anything that was on my wishlist. Maybe next month?!)

Cupcake Corer
I haven't used this yet but I'm really excited to! It takes out the core of your cupcake so that you can fill it with frosting- I'm thinking of trying Salted Caramel filled cupcakes, they sound delicious and I always see them on Pinterest!
Cupcake Cases
I'm really into cupcakes at the moment, can you tell? I saw these cute cupcake cases in Lakeland and I decided to snap them up. They'll make the cutest summer themed cupcakes! I'm also thinking they would be great for Princess themed cupcakes!
Square Cake Tin
I've been looking for these for so long and I finally decided to buy one- I was just being a bit stingy before and putting it off! I'm excited that it will allow me to do a few more shapes for cakes so maybe I can make some new designs. It also means I'm going to have to conquer being able to cover a square cake with fondant, so maybe once I've figured it out that could lead to a new tutorial maybe?!
Gel Food Colouring
So to top off my cupcakes, I'm going to add some different coloured frostings, and these are an excellent way of adding colour. Obviously you can get liquid food colouring, but I find that these pastes add a bigger "pop" of colour, whereas the liquid ones I've ever tried seem to make a duller, darker colour.

Not the biggest haul, but I'm certainly going to have fun trying out all of these new additions to my baking collection. I actually need to get bigger storage for it all, it's overflowing a little bit!

I'd also like to take this quick chance to ask YOU what you'd like to see on Cakey Dreamer- I'd like to do some more cake decorating tutorials, but I'd love to know what kind of tutorials you would like me to do, so leave your ideas below! :)

10 things I'm trying to do more of in 2015- Revisited!

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll remember that back in March, I wrote this post all about the things I wanted to do more of in 2015. Now that we're four months on, I thought I'd revisit this list to see what I'd managed to continue!

  1. Remembering Old Passions
    I wanted to make sure that I did more of things I used to love, like drawing and reading etc. I haven't been great with drawing, although I have done a bit, but I've definitely been reading a lot more over the past 4 months. I'll definitely try and draw more too again!

  2. Starting Couch to 5k
    Yay, this is definitely one I've kept up with! I completed Couch to 5k and I'm now going to move onwards to the 5k to 10k and hopefully on from there! I'm really glad I've stuck to this because I found something I really love.

  3. Looking after my hair
    My hair was never in an awful condition but I was trying to grow it from a short bob and it just wasn't happening. I started washing it every other day, using less heat, using heat protection spray etc., and it's all helped so much! In fact, the last time I went to the hairdressers I asked how bad it was and she told me it was in excellent condition, so yay for that!

  4. Looking after my skin
    Er, mm... I'm not sure about this one. I definitely take better care of my skin than I used to but I could be much better. There are too many days when I am awwwwwful and fall asleep before I take my make up off etc. But I am looking after it a lot more than I used to! I just need to keep working at this one.

  5. Being more blog organised
    Another one I definitely have done! I think I proved this with all of the scheduled posts I managed to do before my holiday. I'm getting back on track too so I'm ahead with my posts. I'm glad I've managed to keep this one up because it makes my life so much easier when I don't have to worry about if I have a blog post ready or not!

  6. Stop being so shy/unconfident!
    I have definitely got better at this, I'm less shy in Twitter chats etc., but I am still working on this. My most recent example is that I joined the gym and felt really insecure. I'd love to think that one day I'll never feel like this about anything but as I'm sure most of you know, you never fully get rid of your shyness. I'll keep working on it though!

  7. Be happy with what you've got
    I definitely think I've been good at this lately. I'm now engaged to a wonderful man, I've just come back from a fabulous holiday, I've got a good and stable job that leaves me able to start saving for a mortgage, I've got some wonderful friends so I absolutely am happy with what I've got!

  8. ...But never stop dreaming!
    As much as I am happy with what I've got, it's a natural thing to strive for more etc. I'm currently doing a management course with my work and I still dream of being a full time cake decorator one day. It's a good thing to dream!

  9. Spend more time with family
    I haven't been so great with this, unfortunately. Things started off really well but I've had a busy few months so it slipped a bit. I've still got just under half a year to change things though! :)

  10. Do more for Charity
    Again, I just haven't had the time but it is still something I very much want to do. We are going to hold another bake sale at work in the coming months which will be for charity, so I'm definitely hoping to tick this off my list before the end of the year!

Overall, I think I've done pretty well! There are some things that I still need to work on but generally I have done everything I wanted to do, I just did need to keep building on it. Have you managed to stick with your goals this year?

Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort Review

Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort
So as you probably know by now, I recently visited Walt Disney World. If you'd like to read my other posts about my trip, you can find them all here!

When Dan and I booked to go back to Walt Disney World, we booked the same hotel as we stayed in in 2014- Disney's Caribbean Beach resort. We loved it last year so we decided to try it again for two weeks. If you look at it's Tripadvisor page, you will see it gets quite a few bad reviews from people complaining about it, but seriously if you decide to go, I would 100% recommend it and hopefully once you've read this post you will see why!

Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort
There are two types of rooms, standard rooms or Pirate themed rooms (like Pirates of the Caribbean). The standard rooms used to be a blueish green colour with a Finding Nemo theme but are all being refurbished to have a theme like you can see in the picture. You can either get a room with two double beds or one king size bed (which is HUGE). All rooms are a really good size as far as I'm concerned and have a bathroom with a toilet, bath and shower, while the his and her sinks are just outside with sliding doors to allow privacy from the bedroom area. I personally have never had a problem with the rooms, Mousekeeping do a fantastic job and I love the decor.

The resort is made up of different "blocks", named after different places in the Caribbean: Barbados, Martinique, Trinidad North, Trinidad South, Aruba and Jamaica. There is also Old Port Royale which houses the food court, main swimming pool and shops. Some of the blocks are not located that near to Old Port Royale but they are all a maximum of a 5 minute walk away (I did see someone write a review saying it took them 15 minutes to walk to breakfast... I'm pretty sure it was written by a snail, we stayed at the furthest block from Old Port Royale). This is what a lot of people complain about but we personally loved the walk. You get to walk along a beautiful lake first thing in the morning to help wake you up before sitting down to a nice breakfast. If you have walking difficulties, there is a Disney bus service that drives around the resort taking people from one place to the other. I really don't see why people complain but I guess you can't please everybody!

The resort is a "moderate" grade, which means it's slightly more expensive than the lower grades, but not as expensive as the Grand Floridian hotel or anything like that. I think a lot of people forget that this means it is NOT a 5* hotel even though it is a Disney hotel which means they aren't going to wait on you hand and foot. Heck, most Disney hotels don't wait on you hand and foot- but most people spend their time in the parks, not at the hotel, so this isn't a problem for most people.

The scenery is gorgeous as most of it is set around a huge lake. They have also added sandy areas in places around the lake to replicate a beach, complete with deck chairs and hammocks. Dan and I lazed around in a hammock a couple of nights and it was absolute bliss. Most of the different "blocks" also have a private swimming pool area which are less busy than the main swimming pool. Probably should have taken a picture of the scenery, but I was too busy enjoying myself!

The resort provides lots for kids like a "Movie under the stars", where at 9pm every night they play a Disney movie on a huge projector near the main food court which everyone is welcome to go and watch. Most evenings they also have a campfire where adults and children can go and roast marshmallows and play volleyball (a safe distance away from the campfire). There's also a room full of video games as well for kids who love those! The resort is also so close to Epcot that you can actually watch Epcot's fireworks every night at 9pm from one of the "beaches"- who wouldn't love that?!

All in all, I would definitely visit Caribbean Beach again. If we go back, we will probably stay at a different resort purely as it would be nice to try something new, but I would definitely go back if we changed our minds. If you're planning a visit to Walt Disney World, do keep it in mind and take the bad Tripadvisor reviews with a pinch of salt- there are more good ones than bad ones!

Have you visited Caribbean Beach before? Let me know your thoughts- or let me know if I've convinced you to give it a try! :P

Marble Cupcakes & Recipe!

Marble Cupcakes
I've finally been able to bake again, hooray! I'd taken a bit of a break from baking simply because it started to feel like more of a chore than something I WANTED to do. After I came back from my holiday I really felt like I actually wanted to start baking again, so I'm really happy that I've got the baking bug back!

Something I've been wanting to try for ages has been Marble Cupcakes. I've made Marble Cake many times before but decided this time to take that recipe and turn it into cupcakes. As you can see, they turned out pretty well and they tasted delicious. Marble cake is perfect for when you can't decide whether you want chocolate cake or a vanilla cake (don't pretend you don't know that struggle). Instead, you can have both in one delicious package!

Marble Cupcakes
Recipe:
Ingredients:

  • 175g softened butter
  • 175g Caster Sugar
  • 175g Self Raising Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder

You will also need cupcake cases! I managed to make 12 cupcakes out of this mixture.

  • First, mix together the butter and caster sugar in a mixing bowl until butter has become creamy.

  • Then add the eggs, flour and baking powder to your mixture and mix well.

  • Take a separate (smaller) mixing bowl, and pour half of your mixture into this bowl.

  • In the first mixing bowl, add the teaspoon of vanilla extract and mix well.

  • In the second mixing bowl, add the 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder (Depending on how "chocolatey" you would like it, you can add 1-3 tablespoons)

  • Once your two mixtures are ready, spoon a teaspoon of each into each cupcake case until they are half full. For example, for mine I added one spoonful of vanilla, one spoonful of chocolate, another of vanilla and another of chocolate. Keep taking it in turns in each cupcake case, making sure that you are completely covering the base of the case.

  • Once all the cupcake cases are full with mixture, take a cocktail stick and start swirling! You should see that marble effect starting to take place. But don't swirl too much! Remember that the chocolate is stronger than the vanilla, and if the chocolate becomes too "dominant" it will turn your cupcakes a complete brown colour and there will be no marble effect. Unfortunately I am speaking from experience!

  • Bake in the oven on 180 degrees for around 22-25 minutes, depending on how large your cupcakes are.

  • Leave to cool and then enjoy!

After that, it is completely up to you- you can leave them without icing or you can add vanilla or chocolate frosting. Or if you're feeling REALLY adventurous you can make a mixture of both frostings and have marbled buttercream! But I'll leave that for another day... ;)
Let me know if you try these for yourself and feel free to ask me any questions in the comments below!

Fitness Update: Getting back into fitness


Image Source

In my last fitness update post, I told you it was going to be my last... which it totally was, until a few people asked me in different places to keep it going. I really love writing these posts but wasn't sure how well they were being received, but now I know people are enjoying them I will carry on writing them!

So while I was on holiday, I didn't do much exercise apart from a LOT of walking. I'm having to wear a pedometer for 100 days for a global challenge my work has asked me to take part in and on one day in the Magic Kingdom I did over 31,000 steps in one day. In fact, in the two weeks I was in Florida I did over 318,000 steps- and I didn't even go for a run once!

When I got back, I took a week off from fitness to give my feet a rest but also just to give my entire body a rest. I'd worked so hard before my holiday to lose weight that I'd kind of exhausted myself a little bit and I felt it was probably time to have a week off to just relax and enjoy myself. I'm glad to say that I actually missed exercising and saw a difference in my energy levels etc. which spurred me on after the week to pick it back up again!

So this is what I've done so far this month:

  1. Joined a gym!- So I finally gave in and joined a gym. I'm not a huge fan of gyms, but I think it's just because I'm very self conscious and insecure and I always feel like everyone's looking at me. They really aren't and I just need to overcome the anxiety I guess!
  2. Worked out a new fitness plan- Before I went on holiday, I was exercising 6-7 days a week to try and lose as much weight as possible before my holiday and to be honest, it was killing me a little bit. Towards the end, I'd pretty much worn myself out and had to stop. Now I'm back, I've decided to only exercise 5 days a week and make sure I have two rest days per week so that I won't get to that point again!

It's not much, but I'm trying to gradually ease myself back into things now. I'm going to start doing longer runs soon once I'm back into the swing of things and hopefully get back into lifting weights! Let me know if you have any tips for my weight loss/fitness goals and tell me if you're also on your own fitness journey!

Walt Disney World 2015- My favourite Meet'n'Greets!

You might have heard that I've just got back from Walt Disney World. I've talked about it a lot and got really excited and I had the most incredible time. I will probably have a lot of posts to write about Walt Disney World, so hang on to your hats! (I'll also post about other stuff too... partly so I don't bore you and partly because it means I can take longer to think about the memories. Win win!)

One of my favourite parts of going to Disneyland or Disney World is meeting the characters. I love the rides and parades and everything else, but for me, the characters are the best part. Dan and I met a total of 42 characters. 42!!!!!! I don't even know how we did it, but I'm pretty darn tootin' proud. All of the meet'n'greets were fun, but some stood out for me more than others and I decided it would be nice to share those with you guys!

Walt Disney World

Fairy Godmother
I actually really hope that she reads blogs, because I really want her to know how much her meet'n'greet made my day. Truth be told, she wasn't like the Fairy Godmother in the film... like, at all. But she was a really lovely woman and made an effort to find out our names and a bit about us. She asked me where my name was from so I told her (It's the Welsh version of Jane, in case you're wondering) and she was genuinely interested in the answers. A lot of the characters you meet (*cough*Anna&Elsa*cough*) talk AT you rather than to you, so that they can shoo you out and get the next person in. The Fairy Godmother wasn't like that and it was so nice. Plus, later as we watched the Main Street Electrical Parade, we waved to her again *really* enthusiastically so we'd get her attention and she remembered us and blew us kisses and waved back. She was just a really incredible lady and if she or any cast members read this, PLEASE pass that on to her!

Walt Disney World

Stitch
I mean, I was always a Stitch fan, but after this meet'n'greet it made me love him even more. We arrived just as he came out and no one else was queuing for him, which meant we got to play around with him and take super fun poses. He was just really fun and playful and after meeting him, we were smiling for the rest of the morning. That reminds me, I need to watch Lilo'n'Stitch now!

Walt Disney World

Merida
I didn't meet Merida last year, so I made sure I met her this time. I didn't have high hopes, as I said previously a lot of the Princesses shoo you in and out as quick as they can due to their long queues, but Merida wasn't like that at all. She greeted us both with a huge hug and asked where we were from and was just really bubbly and interactive. The meet'n'greet didn't last that long because as with all the Princesses, her line was fairly long but it didn't feel rushed, just natural. I definitely recommend meeting her next time you visit!

I do have other favourites, but I'll save those for another day and another post! Actually, I'd love to hear YOUR favourite meet'n'greet stories, so feel free to leave those in the comments! And if you haven't met a character yet and want some tips, you can find some here (Little plug there..) I'm excited to share all the stories from my trip with you guys!

Change is a-coming!

Over the past couple of weeks since I've been back from holiday, I've been doing a lot of thinking about my blog. I took a few weeks off from it while I was on holiday (although I had posts scheduled so I think I only actually missed one post) and when I got back I continued the break just to have some time away from it all and to think about what I wanted for Cakey Dreamer over the next few months.

When I started this blog, it was meant to purely be a cake decorating and baking blog that would showcase my creations and I could help teach others what I've learnt, from one beginner to another kinda thing. I think I've definitely done that and you all seem to like it so.. hooray! But as I started to become more comfortable with blogging, I've introduced all kinds of other topics, like of course Disney and fitness and just general lifestyle posts. Again, you all seem to enjoy these too which I'm really glad of!

But all of these thoughts made me realise that Cakey Dreamer has become much more of a lifestyle blog than a food/baking blog and I'm okay with that. Therefore I've started to change my bio's everywhere to call myself a Lifestyle Blogger, rather than a cake decorating/baking blogger. This doesn't mean I won't blog about baking or cake decorating because of course I will, but it means I can feel free to blog about other stuff too- which hopefully you'll continue to enjoy!

Another thing I've decided to change is my blogging schedule. Currently I have a new post every Tuesday and Friday, but I've now decided (at least for the time being) to add in Sundays too. This is something I trialled while I was on holiday and it seemed to work well!

Please let me know what you think about these small changes... they really are small, but I'm hoping it will allow me to grow more as a blogger and hopefully keep you guys interested! :)

Magic Kingdom: Be Our Guest Restaurant | Review

Be Our Guest Restaurant
Ever since I was a young girl, Beauty and the Beast has been my favourite film. I've always been in awe of the animation, the music, the characters and probably also because Belle was the Princess I looked the most like. When I visited Walt Disney World in 2014, I REALLY wanted to visit Be Our Guest, the Beauty and the Beast themed restaurant, designed to look just like the Beast's castle.

However, so does the rest of the world and that means that reservations are ridiculously hard to make. This year, I didn't waste ANY time in booking a reservation back in December as soon as I could.

When you first walk towards the restaurant, you literally feel as though you are walking up to the Beast's castle. I take my hat off to the designers because they have got every detail spot on. The restaurant is REALLY busy so don't expect to get to your table any earlier than you've booked for! This was fine for us though as it gave us a chance to explore the foyer area.

Food wise, the menu definitely is inspired by French cuisine and it is absolutely gorgeous. Unfortunately jet lag got me bad this year, so I had a really small appetite for this meal, which meant I didn't get to eat as much as I would have liked! I had the Pan-Seared Chicken Breast served with seasonal vegetables and roasted fingerling potatoes. I'm a really fussy eater, so when menus have really fancy foods I get a bit worried- I really didn't need to worry here, it was incredible.

Moving onto dessert- I of course had the Grey Stuff. In case you aren't a Disney fanatic like me, the Grey Stuff is a reference to the Be Our Guest song ("Try the grey stuff, it's delicious! Don't believe me? Ask the dishes!") and used to be a special dessert that the Be Our Guest servers could give out to people celebrating birthdays etc. Now it's available to everyone as a dessert, so I jumped at the chance to try it! I unfortunately am a terrible blogger because I forgot to take pictures of my food (I ate it and then realised!), but the Grey Stuff is a chocolate mousse on top of a chocolate biscuit/cake. It tasted absolutely divine and even though my appetite was small and it made me feel a little sick to keep eating, it tasted so good that I just couldn't not eat it all!


Be Our Guest Restaurant


Be Our Guest Restaurant
So what did I love about the Be Our Guest restaurant? As a huge Beauty and the Beast fan, for me it was all the finer details. You really do feel that you are dining in the Beast's castle. The restaurant is divided into three dining rooms- The Ballroom, The West Wing and the Enchanted Library. I'm pretty sure most people want to dine in the ballroom, however the other dining rooms are also beautifully designed. I also love that you can do a meet'n'greet with the Beast after the dinner in his "study"- I'm pretty sure it's the only place you can meet the Beast and is a special treat for people who dine in the evenings. We unfortunately didn't do this though, as the queue was really long and we were distracted by something else... which I'll talk about in a bit!

Overall, I really recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the Magic Kingdom. You can dine there for breakfast, lunch and dinner, although breakfast and lunch are only quick service so I would recommend visiting more for dinner! However breakfast there is a bit of a hidden gem, which meant that we got next day reservations for breakfast there on our last full day! I'd definitely recommend having dinner there though. For dinner, you WILL need a reservation, and you will need to book it far in advance so my advice to you is to book it as soon as you can, using the 180 days advance reservations. This should mean you'll get a good time for dinner!


Be Our Guest Restaurant Engagement!
So, what distracted us from meeting the Beast? Well... if you follow me on Twitter you'll know that whilst dining at Be Our Guest, Dan surprised me with a beautiful present- an engagement ring! I'm pretty sure it's the most romantic thing that's ever happened to me, but yes we got engaged in the most magical place on Earth in probably the most meaningful place to me!

If you've dined in Be Our Guest, let me know what you thought- it's definitely going to be a memorable place for us for a long time to come!

Workout Tips for Beginners

Workout tips for beginners

If you've been reading my blog for the past few months, you will know that in February I decided to start getting fit. If I'm honest, I don't know what spurred me on to start, apart from my determination to lose weight for my holiday to Walt Disney World. I read some really helpful websites when I first started, so I thought I'd give it a go myself to help anyone who is thinking of starting or has just started!

  1. Make sure you enjoy what you're doing- When I first started doing exercise, I followed a million "fitspiration" accounts on Instagram and Tumblr, made an exercise board on Pinterest and basically did whatever they told me to do. I thought Yoga sounded good, so I did that because everyone on these accounts was doing it. I hate Yoga. I'm not good with the whole sitting still and concentrating on your breathing, I like to be doing something. Eventually I stopped because I realised, if you don't like it, you don't want to do it. However, I love running and lifting weights, so I concentrated on that instead!

  2. You need Protein- Which I wasn't getting much of when I first started. My mentality was definitely "I can eat what I like because I'll work it off", but that's so wrong. Chances are, you won't work it off and you won't see proper results. Your body needs good food inside it to give it the energy it needs for your workouts. So eat well! But also, don't completely cut out things you love, you'll be miserable!

  3. It's not going to work overnight- Unfortunately. It will be a while before you start seeing results, but when you do it will feel so worth it!

  4. "No Pain, No Gain" is NOT true- I read this and was really surprised because you see it everywhere, but this is actually not true... to a certain extent anyway. Yes, if you use muscles that haven't been used for a while then you will feel sore- but you shouldn't feel pain while you're working out. If you are, something is wrong and you should stop. If you feel sore the next day, that's a different matter! (Also, if you're eating protein then your muscles will repair quicker)

  5. Don't put too much pressure on yourself- Which is something I definitely did at the start. Don't feel like you need to work out every day, because you will burn yourself out. When I first started running, I was so worried that I was going too slow, until I read "No matter how slow you run, you're still lapping everyone on the couch", which is so true, and applies to everything. Even if you're only lifting 2.5kg weights, that's still more than someone who never lifts any weights. Be proud, no matter how far along on your journey you are.

Please note that these are just my opinions, I'm not a personal trainer or anything like that, I just know what I've been told and found out myself. If you have any tips, let us know in the comments below! :)
