How To Avoid The PITfalls (Heh) Of Natural Deodorants

Natural Deodorant Recipe

I think getting to grips with natural deodorants is one of the biggest roadblocks people have on their way to going ‘all natural’ with skincare and beauty products. It may be my stubborn Aries nature, but I refused to let my pits get the better of me. Just like no-pooing, there was a lot of […]

A Healthy Morning Routine (Interview Series #11)

Healthy Morning Routine

I never really got that expression: “Red sky in the morning; Shepherd’s warning. Red Sky at night; Shepherd’s delight.” I like red skies at anytime (then, I’ve never had to lock after sheep…) and we’ve seen some beauts in London town lately. Until yesterday morning. The drizzle is back and l fully bailed on my morning walk. […]

Kindess (+ October Goal)


I must confess I’ve had my goal set for October for a good week or two now, right up to this morning – when I changed my mind. Originally, my goal had sprouted from some very motivated, very type-A thoughts of mine. These thoughts were along the lines of: I need to try harder. I get […]

September in Review: Sharing My Journal Entries…

Sharing my journal

Ok so remember how my goal for September was to journal every day? (You don’t? Shame on you!) Well, I did pretty well, I think I only missed a few days – despite some being utterly dull… Anyway, I thought sharing my journal entries for this month’s review made sense!   It’s definitely more scary to […]



I was going to apologise for being a day late on my regular blog post scheduling… but that would be highly ironic given the post title. Today’s word of the day is… Unapologetic. Say it with me now! Ok, Sesame Street references out of the way. I have a keen memory of lying on my […]

A Healthy Morning Routine (Interview Series #10)

Healthy Morning Routine

Now, I try not to fall into the British stereotype of having nothing better to talk about than the weather… But what EVEN is this RAIN!? Oh to make matters worse I don’t have an umbrella and refuse to buy one because 1) I’ll lose it by the end of the week 2) or break […]

10 Things NOT to do in Bruges

10 Things NOT to do in Bruges

Surprise! I’m back with another post about Bruges. I honestly didn’t think I’d have this much to say on the little city, but I couldn’t help myself sharing the – erm – less recommended bits of my trip. (If you’re not in the mood to read a rant, you can read a more positive post […]

10 Things to do in Bruges

10 Things to do in Bruges

It seems to me everyone in my life had an opinion on Bruges. One of my sisters told me to only visit when I have a sync grant other to bring, as it is so ‘perfect for couples’. The other sister has been several times and told me I must go–single or not. One friend told […]

Chocolate Chip Coconut Pancakes (Gluten-free)

Chocolate Chip Coconut Pancakes

Chocolate chip coconut pancakes sound like something I would have fantasised about as a child. But no, mum was more inclined to make us dainty ‘crepes’ filled with sugar and double cream. Not that I’m complaining – they were bloody good. But now – I can make all the chocolate-filled delicacies I ever dreamed of! Mwahaha […]

The Guilty Pleasures of a Healthy Living Blogger

Guilty Pleasures

We all have our guilty pleasures, right? Whether it’s that tub of Ben & Jerry’s in the back of the freezer, singing in the shower to Bieber, or (still) crushing on Duncan from Blue (ahem…) we have our little secret loves. No shame in it. I’m all for doing what makes you feel good, and […]
