Whilst solely providing the vocals for ‘Crazy´ – Elektrik DJ (Phonetic Recordings) & ´Believe In You´ – Wil Milton (Blak Ink Music).

Carlene has recently recorded her self penned & composed debut album @ Villalobos recording Studios, Almeria under the supervision of Errol Ross (who received his Gold & Silver discs for producing ´The Selector´- one of Ska Music´s biggest contributions to date).
Her four releases ‘Before I Go’, ‘Vibrations’, ‘Fast Food’ & ‘No Other Choice’ have received a lot of support & positive feedback thus far.

Sooo, the weight loss ting! *sighs*

Well, I’m still on it but boy, I hit a bit of a brick wall to say the least! I ate & ate & ate whilst in LDN (all that good Brit stuff!) & it’s fair to say, messed up my whole exercise regime…& the rest!!

Turning it into a positive though as a result of feeling thoroughly disappointed with myself all week! I’m back on it & am giving myself a year…aiming for the pow! 😉

Those of you that know me know that I love to cook…& this new Mediterranean way of eating has definitely influenced my cooking style! Check out last night’s dinner…yum!!

Diet?

Diet?



I ain’t ever gonna survive a diet(!), so I’ve decided to make healthy eating interesting!!

  • 2 x fried dumplings
  • 2 pieces of fried Sea Bream
  • Avocado salad: Lettuce, tomato, carrots, olives, sweetcorn & avocado – with olive oil & white wine vinegar drizzled on top
  • Onion, garlic & tomato sauce (for the fish)
