About me…

Who is this Gem person anyway…?

I want to start by saying thank you – yes to you. I am really grateful that you have chosen to take the time to read my little blog.

So, you’re probably wondering what this is all about? As you can probably guess I’m Gemma – or Gem and most people call me. I’m a 30 something professional living in the UK with my husband and our two cats and I finally feel like I’m beginning to get this ‘being an adult thing’ down.

I’m an avid Slimming World member, a huge lover of Zumba, Insanity Live and Clubbercise and like to dabble in the world of design and crafting. (Disclaimer – please note I am no expert, a lot of my creations are based on hacks or tips n tricks and are ‘made with love’ lol)  

For the better part of 4 years, I’ve made some big changes in my life that have immensely improved things – significantly my health. I’m always being told that I have great organisational skills, am the go to gal for advice and like to help people so I thought why not put those things to good use and have a go at a blog. This could be the start of a new big and exciting chapter in my life, or it could tank and I could be the only person that reads this – either way, why not try hey? This blog is as much for me as it is for anyone reading it, I do not plan on taking any steps backwards so this will help keep me focused.

So this space is going to be my story – the story of how I managed to lose 6 stone (so far) and get my life back on track and hopefully sharing new and exciting adventures that I’m yet to have. No doubt a lot of this will be about food – I LOVE to cook and share my slimming world experiments – but I’ll try and shake things up and keep it interesting by sharing new products I’m trying, days out reviews, my exercise journey, crafting projects, hell maybe I’ll be brave and share hair and make up stories. My only hope is that just one person might stumble across this and it might inspire them – if I do then happy days!

I chose the name #TeaWithGem as I want my blog to be relaxed and like friends meeting to share stories or tips and tricks so I’m sure its going to be full of weird and wonderful things. So welcome and I hope you like what I share! If you want to know more feel free to keep reading, lets see where it takes us…. #Hello2TheNewMe
