A little life update


After egaly awaiting for this trip to come around for 9 months, it's no surprise that I was still wide awake at 4:30am.

I did my last minute packing, grabbed a coffee and before I knew it we where being whisked away to Gatwick.

March Favourites // 2017

Its finally starting to feel like summer.

Frank Body // Coconut Body Balm & Body Scrub

Its no secret I'm one of Frank's biggest fan girls, and when they came out with a coconut body balm I was instantly sold. Two of my favourite things had finally come together, Frank & Coconuts. 

My Superfood Cacao Granola // Vegan

Granola is one of the easiest breakfasts to prepare in bulk. Its healthy, satisfying and you can make it so many different ways. Recently I have been playing around with some different recipes and I have created one that I love! Its packed full of goodness, it tastes amazing and its vegan. This granola recipe is a great way to start your day - it will fuel your body and its full of antioxidants and good fats that are amazing for your overall health and well being. Its really simple to do and it only takes around 30 minutes. Whip this up on a Sunday evening and you've got breakfast for the week sorted! 

Pura Vida Monthly Club // January

One of my intentions for this year is to be more mindful about the purchases I make and the companies I choose to support. I would much rather support small, independent and charitable companies over larger corporations, and Pura Vida is one of those brands that I love.

DIY // Make Your Own Rose water

Even if you love it or hate it, Valentines day is here in full force. Roses are being given left, right and centre this time of year, but they don't have the greatest shelf life. Instead of throwing them away, this year why don't you try making rose water with them? I listed the many reason's why Rose is great for your skin in my previous post and its so easy to do! Whether you get given them from your Valentine or pick them up the day after when they are reduced, you have no excuse not to try this!

The Beauty Benefits of Rose

Roses aren't just for Valentines day, they also have some amazing beauty benefits too. Roses have been a part of our beauty regime for centuries thanks to the ancient greeks. They are relaxing, soothing and add a little luxury to your morning routine.  

My Natural Smile // Splat Blackwood Charcoal Toothpaste Review

I've seen teeth whitening products all over Instagram lately, and the thing that puts me off the most is the amount of chemicals in the ingredients list. I would love whiter teeth, but not at the cost of using products packed full of chemicals I couldn't begin to pronounce. When I came across My Natural Smile I was instantly intrigued, they have a range of teeth whitening products that are made with natural ingredients so I decided to see if I could whiten my teeth the natural way.

The Benefits of Lemon Water

We all hear about our favourite bloggers and vloggers drinking lemon water first thing in the morning, but what does it actually do for our bodies? To put it simply, rather a lot! 

Whats in Store for 2017

So life caught up with me and put a halt on Blogmas, which I'm so sorry for. 2016 was a hard year for me and I had to put blogging and social media on hold to deal with some personal things. I even cried on midnight on New Years Eve because I was so thankful for 2016 to be over! Thank you for your lovely messages and for standing by me during times where I disappeared from the internet. I can't begin to describe how much your support means to me. 

So, its finally 2017 and I have such a good feeling for this year! I have been busy planning exciting things for this year and I cannot wait to share my ideas with you. 

Thaikhun Southampton Review

If you know me, then you know that I love to eat.

When I heard that there was a new Thai restaurant coming to Southampton I couldn't wait to try it out. Thai food is one of my favourites so I definitely couldn't pass up the chance to try out Thaikhun in Soutampton's new development, and as it was the other half's birthday it was the perfect excuse to treat ourselves.
