My Favourite Smoothie Recipe :)

So recently I have been trying to make a conscious effort to eat more healthily. This was quite easy for me to do as I never eat breakfast anyway so I added a smoothie in there, and just swapped the unhealthy food (mostly chips) for more veggies. Anyway as I have been trying out lots of different smoothies I thought I would share my favourite one with you.

This is a very basic but delicious smoothie:

  • 100ml of coconut water
  • 1 banana
  • 5 strawberries
  • 1 teaspoon of chia seeds
That's it... you just need to blend it all together and enjoy! Little tip when making any smoothie containing banana, if you freeze the banana first its more like an ice cream texture when added to a smoothie and is delicious.

I would love to hear and try anyone else's smoothie recipes

Chit Chat :)

So as I am a day behind on Mondays blog post (I was unfortunately working), I thought it would just be nice to do a sort of chit chat post where I just talk about random stuff.

So first things first I am now comfortable with my morning cup of coffee and bowl of fruit, yogurt and honey...YUM! That is literally my favourite breakfast at the moment - raspberry, strawberry, Greek yogurt, honey and a sprinkle of chia seeds. It really does fill you up for a long time.

Anyway next week is the back to school/college week - dreading it! Back to getting up at half six every morning to get the bus...NOT FUN! Well its worth it because im going back for my final year completing level 3 Beauty Therapy, then hopefully I would love to go on and get a job in a Spa as the thought of making people relaxed and feel the way you do when you go to a spa everyday is what I dream to do. 

I actually went to a spa last week (as a very late birthday present) and had a rain drop massage - which was AMAZING! I love the atmosphere at spa's and how I could make people feel like that.

So now im just sat here watching the Sacconejoly's, relaxing and working for the last week before back to college. Plus I need to get back into a routine because I used to go to the gym twice a week and now I haven't been in ages and my eating habits have become so bad! Just Eat is my weakness, I cant stop ordering takeaways!

Off topic me and my bestfriend (who is also a makeup hoarder) have set ourselves a goal to use up as much of our beauty and makeup products as we can by Christmas as we have soooo much stuff, it means we can buy loads more next year and start a fresh 2016 collection. So there will be quite a few reviews coming up as I will be using a lot of new products, I challenge all of you to try it - you cant buy anymore (unless its a necessity) and you have to only use what you have. Its actually quite fun as you find so many things you never realised you had.

A little side note I have been soaking my hair once a week overnight in coconut oil, so if you have dry hair like me honestly it works really well. I also have really tangled hair and I would even go as far as saying it has helped detangle my hair.

I would love to hear what everyone else has been up to!
