There is always a few questions that I get asked on a weekly (or should I say daily) basis. One of those questions is always about dark circles. How do you get rid of them?

I will be honest and say it all depends on the reason you have them in the first place.


This is basically if either or both of your parents have them, there's a good chance you will too. Also, if the skin around the eyes is naturally very f...

When I first purchased my waffle maker I was so excited to get to make waffles every weekend. Then I had a play with some recipes, made a few batches and the recipes just were not quite right. So, in the cupboard the waffle maker went and I didn’t see it for a few months. Then, Christmas came and I thought hmmm... maybe I could give it another go!

I had another play with some recipes and have come up with THE MOST delicious, li...


This is probably one of the words you will hear the most this month (apart from Brexit... you'll probably hear that a lot too! *rolls eyes*).

Anyway, if you're thinking of starting a detox', then these are my top tips to keep you on track and avoid falling off that 'super healthy wagon' we're all trying to hang on to.


It's all very well having good intentions, but if you decide on the 1st of January yo...

When we have leftover bananas I get excited for cookies. When I have leftover sourdough bread... It's French Toast time!

I originally created this to have a play around with using sourdough. I didn't have any normal white bread laying around (as I don't use it) and so this was the next best option... It's delicious!


  • 2-3 pieces of stale sourdough bread (I love M&S's best)

  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 cup coconut mil...

So, I have done a 'Cookies 2.0' here and also an 'Avo Toast 2.0' here. Now it is time for some pancakes 2.0 as well!

I love my tasty Protein Pancakes I make, but I also like to change it up a bit. These pancakes are light as air and super fluffy!

They are baked and not fried, plus they are fat free, gluten and also dairy free! Before you close this post and turn away, no, they do not takes like 'healthy' food, but instead someth...

I think the Chinese in me just can't resist some fried rice. To me it's one of my favourite comfort foods and I must treat myself to this every week (along with the many other things I like to 'treat' myself to!).

This is my basic recipe, but it does change rather regularly depending on what vegetables I have lying around.

Also, as a bit of a side note, I find fried rice always works better with rice that has been made the day b...

We all love a good snack right?

In my experience, if I have had a lunch with a high glycemic index then I know I will get that guaranteed 'afternoon slump' where I crave something sweet. 

I became aware of the GI diet many many years ago when a teacher told me that she used it to lose a few pounds before she went on holiday. After doing some research, I learnt that my diet was rather high GI at the time and decided to change it...

When it comes to self-care, there are a few different things that I can easily build into my daily routine that can really help prevent my skin from ageing. Here are my top tips...



I appreciate that this can be a very difficult thing to do, but there are a few things I do to help myself.

Practice yoga - I find for me, yoga helps distract my mind from the world around me. To begin with, it c...

The other night I fancied some kind of hot drink. I wanted it to be warming, tasty and help me sleep. So, after playing around with different herbs, powders and other concoctions, I came up with this.

Now, I'm not 100% sure which part of it knocks me out, in fact it might be a combination of everything. I did feel super sleepy afterwards and I swear it helped me get my Zzz's. Plus, it is DELICIOUS!

So here is my recipe for my 'S...

To start off, this is definitely one for the girls! This might not be for the faint hearted I might also add. If you're that way inclined, there are lots of other lovely blog posts for you to read here :) For the rest of you curious ones, keep reading...

Bit of background... I've been on the pill for a very long time. 15 years plus I would say. Originally it was to help with skin issues (Dianette, we love you - albeit you were...

I'm sure you know how much of a fan I am of avo toast, but sometimes I can get a bit bored. In fact, in some places I've been to, it can actually taste of nothing!

This on the other hand is different.... This is packed full of flavour and is the perfect breakfast to get you going through the day.

I wanted to do this recipe to show that you can be a little bit lazy now and again. Maybe start to use the freezer section in the supe...

I do love a brownie. There's something about that gooey, rich and fudge like consistency of them that feels like heaven. They are however packed full of sugar and also a huge amount of other naughty things.

I decided to do what I love to do best and make a healthier version. Do not be fooled... these are not dry at all, not a soul would believe that they are refined sugar, gluten and dairy free either. Gee wiz though... they ar...

From the age of 11 I have been obsessed with makeup. The branding, the packaging, how it made me feel so grown up... I was a full on addict!

I've tried it all! Powders, liquids, compacts... you name it, I spent my hard earned money on it. What can I say... I was a makeup junkie!

This 'addiction' has grown up with me and for the last 20 or so years I have worn foundation pretty much every day. I began to reduce it a few years ago...

You know how much I love mindfulness right? Well, you're in for a special treat this week. We have guest blogger Heather Murdoch a Reiki and Meditation teacher from White Feather Reiki to help us with some simple steps to look after ourselves when our diaries are already full.

In this busy world we are juggling too many tasks, roles and expectations of ourselves and others. It’s no wonder that cases of depression, stress and an...

If you don't know by now, I have a new gadget in my home and it is fabulous! I finally treated myself to a bread-maker and I am obsessed with it!

If you like to eat fresh bread but don't have the time/inclination/know how to make it, then a bread maker is most definitely for you!

I was dubious to start with, it all just seems a bit too simple to be honest but it's real. THIS IS SOOO EASY!

What I have started to do is bung all the...
