It’s been a while since I last posted anything lifestyle related, so I thought I’d do something a little bit different today and talk about food storage! Not the most interesting topic I know, but I’ve been getting very bored lately with taking the same old things to work every day for lunch, and I think a new lunch box could be the answer. I was recently browsing the Kleeneze website and noticed that they had some fun looking containers for sale, and they’ve inspired me to scrap the sandwiches and start taking healthier, more exciting food to work with me.
The Snacks To Go tub and the Keep Cool Food Store are what really got me thinking. Both would be perfect for taking salads for lunch, as they both come with a little pot for salad dressing, and the Snacks To Go even has a fork which slots in the side! The Keep Cool Food Store also has a freezable lid so your food can stay fresh. As a vegetarian I have had a lot of practice making salads more appetising, and the idea of having feta and olive, or roast vegetable salads for lunch instead of a boring cheese roll is really rather nice.
The Food Storage Sets may look like normal plastic containers, but the different sized boxes are what I find appealing. I love the idea of having a box within a box filled with fun little treats, almost like Japanese Bento boxes. The small ones are perfect for dried fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, or even dips, the medium ones for veggies and crackers, cookies and cakes, and the bigger ones for pasta salads and suchlike. Yum!

As some of you may have noticed, I have been rather elusive on the blog front this week. So firstly, allow me to apologise! I have a lot of exciting blog posts and reviews planned, yet things keep getting in the way, but I hope to be back and blogging properly as of tomorrow.
My absence was mainly caused by one thing in particular – work! All kinds of work. I work at a university, and after three weeks off over Easter I started back on Monday, and needless to say it got very busy, very quickly. On top of that, I have been planning an essay for my postgraduate degree, and of course I have also been researching for my dreaded dissertation! As I’m sure you can imagine, that takes a lot of effort and can cause a lot of stress, and has been taking up a lot of my time. However, amongst all the work, I managed to find the time to be more social than usual this week. I ended up going out for drinks one night, to a pub quiz another and out for a meal and a catch-up with some friends, all within four days.
Perhaps the biggest development comes in the shape of my bedroom. Since starting my blog it has got gradually more and more cluttered with beauty and fashion products, so I decided it would be appropriate to give it a complete overhaul – why I chose this week I’ll never know! I’ve ended up chucking a lot of old clothes away to make room for new stuff, I have brand spanking new storage for all my make up and toiletries (YAY), and my walls are being redecorated with a gorgeous floral print wallpaper. One of the main reasons for this change though is that I have decided to start keeping rats again. I used to have rats when I was younger, but over the past few years I have been sans rodents, and to be honest I missed them! So, when everything is sorted (hopefully next weekend) I will be bringing home two new little girl rats, and I am VERY excited. Expect a photo heavy post when my mission is complete!
There you go – my elusiveness explained, and hopefully that will be the end of it! Keep an eye out for a new review coming tomorrow.
