Healthy Snack Ideas - My 3 Favourites

I get it - it's a constant battle to eat healthy. Especially in Winter when all you want to do is eat chicken nuggets under your duvet.  

It's all about those little actions and making the right choices along the way. Don't beat yourself up if you get McDonald's twice in one week, just make up for it by doing a gym session and ensuring you snack right.

Here are 3 of my go-to healthy snacks that I eat guilt-free and keep me satisfied in between meal times. Warning: You will get hungry just looking at this post. Or, at least I did...

Putting Things in the Past: Rectifying Big Beauty Mistakes

We are all guilty of committing some sort of beauty faux-pas in our past. Everyone cringes when they look back at old photos of themselves, whether it’s to do with their makeup, hair, clothes or overall general style.

But some mistakes are bigger than others and have a longer lasting impact on your overall appearance. So, what are some of the most regrettable beauty decisions you can make and how do you go about resolving them? Here are a few examples.

Looking Your Best Doesn’t Have To Cost the Earth

If you’re anything like me, you’d love to have an unlimited shopping budget, with which you could buy any and all items that you think you’d look great in.

Unfortunately, this is the real world, and unless you’re a movie star or are independently wealthy, you’re probably going to have to think a little bit more carefully about your purchases. This is no great loss, however, because it’s more than possible to look your radiant best at all times, even when the bank balance isn’t doing you any favours. Just check out our ten tips below.

Hits and Misses - L'Oreal New Releases

Sometimes I stop and think to myself how grateful I am to work with such incredible companies. Receiving this L'Oréal package was definitely one of those moments...

You and I both know that L'Oréal have some bomb products and over the years I have only seen the value get better and the quality go up within the brand. In this article we are going to be running through FIVE of their new releases from all across the board; foundation, concealer, blush, brow products and mascara.

We have all bases covered here and some of these products are so impressive, you'll definitely want to keep reading (I mean, there is definitely a reason that I use most of these products in my everyday makeup routine).

Let's get into the lowdown...

(But also, let's keep it short and sweet. I just want to let you know if the product is great and worth trying or iffy and you could probably give it a miss).

Blogger Mail Haul - Benefit, L'Oreal, NYX + More

So it’s no doubt that I am in an extremely fortunate position being a blogger that I am extremely grateful for.

But sometimes, I really do have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not dreaming because of how extremely lucky I am. This is most definitely the case every time an incredible PR package shows up at my door.

In my most recent video, I’m talking you through some PR packages that I have been sent lately from some beautiful companies. I run through them fairly quickly so that I can fit a lot in but after all, that’s what this blog is for, to go more in-depth about the products and give them a proper review over here.

So give to video a watch here and keep an eye out for reviews of the products coming out soon.

BEHIND THE DESK #13 - Stay-Cations, Finals Week and Upcoming Travel

I thought I would take the time this lovely Sunday, while sitting in a café sipping a soy cap, to write up a quick update of what has been happening with me.

Don’t let my current laid back relaxing fool you – it’s the calm before the storm. Finals week commences as of tomorrow so we are sitting at T minus 10 hours until the chaos begins. And oh – it will be chaos.

In between working full time this entire week I have to do; a presentation, an advertising brief, 2 advertising reflective journals and an entire creative advertising campaign. So yeah, fun times.

I know a lot of you are likely in the same boat right now so – good luck my friends – may the force be with you.

Hmm what else?

My First Acupuncture Experience

Acupuncture has been on my ‘to-do’ list for the longest time and last week I finally got around to trying it!

So I thought I would fill you in on my experience and the results I have had with the treatment so far. So first things first (I’m the realist…sorry couldn’t resist), I went to Chi-Link at Chermside shopping centre.

I had just finished up a particularly stressful and hard day so figured it would be the perfect time for acupuncture to work its magic. Side note is that I had never properly read up on the benefits of acupuncture or understood its purpose until recently.

Acupuncture is a 3000 year old healing technique of Traditional Chinese Medicine and has been identified to improve all of the body’s functions and promotes natural self-healing. These acupuncture points are used to balance the bodies energy ‘qui’, which is a constantly flow of energy that keeps yin and yang balances forced. This improves overall well-being but has also been linked to treating specific issues like better sleep, improved respiratory health, increased energy and so much more.

Because everyone has a different experience with the benefits, I thought it would be beneficial to talk you through my first acupuncture experience and the benefits I encountered due to the treatment.

So it’s official – we are now in May! Yeah….scary, I know.

This year has just flown by and I have been keeping so busy I haven’t noticed the time get away from me since my last update. I thought that I would make a cup of coffee (my third for the day) and sit down to fill you in on what has been happening in my world.

I've been on holiday, studying, working, working out, getting back on top of YouTube and doing some major overhauls around the house. Can't wait to catch you up...
