Coffee. The beverage that makes the world go ’round. Pre-January 1 2020, coffee was my reason for getting out of bed. The ritual of making it, smelling it and sipping it while I got ready for the day was everything. Continue reading “WELLNESS: why i’ve given up coffee”
I recently asked you guys if you’d be interested in reading about my journey with The Beauty Chef cleanse. With an outstanding response to ‘yes’, I can only assume y’all love to see me suffer. Continue reading “JOURNEY: the beauty chef cleanse”
Before I get into this, there are a few things I’d just like to say. Firstly, I just want to thank everyone who responded to my Instagram poll. I didn’t want to share this aspect of my life without anyone finding value in it. Secondly, this post is completely based on my experiences.

I don’t even have answers for myself. Lastly, this is not an anti-contraception rant. If anything, I’m envious of those who can take contraception without any negative side effects.

Let’s cut through the crap. I’ve been a bit indulgent and, with lack of a better word, lazy, of late. Now that silly season has well and truly begun with all the madness that comes with it there are some habits that I’m dying to bring back to the daily routine to help keep the sanity. So as much as this is for you, this is for me too – I need that kick in the butt to get back to good things.
FACT: the Earth’s soil isn’t as nutritious as it once was. What this means is that our vegetables aren’t as nutritious as they once were. So while you can keep your protein powder to yourself, I’m going to be all over these supplements. Continue reading “THE WELLNESS SERIES: supplements”
I have always been interested in health. However, my motivation now is different to when I was younger. Having been lucky enough to have never had a weight problem, back then my motivation was based purely on what celebrity I idolised that day.
