Easy Slice-n'-Bake Valentine's Cookies // Recipe


Hello lovelies, from France! I'm in the Alpes right now as I'm posting this, after my first day of skiing this holiday and now probably exhausted, curled up in our little Alpine Lodge...and thinking 'thank god I remembered to pre-write this post!' 

Some of you will be spending Valentine's this year with someone special, or maybe you make it a family thing like me, but either way I think anyone can do with a bit of sweetness on the 14th right? These sugar cookies I've made most years and are still my favourite thing, so simple but the picture-perfect treats that can make the cutest present for anyone. They're also made using a 'slice-n'-bake' technique which takes a little more prep than usual but basically means you can keep it in the freezer and slice cookies to bake off whenever you want. If you're looking for an easy Valentine's-Bake to brighten up someone's day I hope you enjoy, it's amazing what a little bit of pink food colouring can do haha!

What I eat in a Day // Vegan Edition!


Hey lovelies, and welcome back! You might remember from my twitter and Vegan Snack Box post here, that a little while ago I tried going Vegan for the week. It was so much tougher than I thought it would be (No eggs, milk, fish, butter, honey...) and of course all that leftover Christmas Chocolate in the cupboard? Nope not allowed that either! It really did test my self-control though, making me feel naturally a lot healthier from what I was putting into my body, and I managed to stick to it after all. 

Anyway, a post I've always wanted to make is a 'WHAT I EAT IN A DAY' and I thought out of all the weeks, why not do it from a day in my Vegan Week to change things up a bit. In general I'm always known as 'that healthy friend' in my group and I guess that's true, but for my Vegan week I ended up being even more healthy just because there was no temptation from other non-vegan things I would usually have- so bear that in mind as you read through! It was a busy day, from gym in the morning to trying to find vegan lunch places to eat out in the afternoon (which was surprisingly hard,) but hope you enjoy reading through my first ever What I Eat in A Day and let me know in the comments whether you'd like to see another soon. Looking forward to seeing how this one goes down!

A Few January Favourites // 2018!



Hey lovelies! It's been so long (I know) since I've done a monthly favourites but with Christmas Celebrations, my Birthday Presents and a whole bunch of other things since, I'm so excited to finally have a decent selection of favourites to share with you this month.
January's is the month that everyone says feels like 31 years rather than 31 days and always drags on, but for me it's not been so bad! I hit 500 Bloglovin' followers, turned 15, sorted out my work experience and went Vegan for a week last month so a few milestones completed already one month into the year. That said though, like everyone I'm definitely excited about February and of course being a step closer to Spring - I need that warmer weather stat! Anyway I hope you enjoy having a read through my January Favourites, a mix of lifestyle, beauty and random bits and bobs as usual and if you want to see what was included in my January Favourites from 2017 just click the link, let's see how my taste has developed in the past year...

NutriBox Review // My favourite Vegan Snacks!


Hey lovelies so like I mentioned on my twitter, this week I decided to go Vegan for the week (which you might remember I tried back in May) but this time I even managed to convince two of my friends to do it with me! Although I'm already pesketerian, the transition to Vegan for the week has been more difficult than I thought. Having to plan out completely new meals, filling my cupboards with as many vegan snacks as possible and literally the hardest one... remembering to put almond milk in my tea instead! All in all though, it's been really good and enabled me to eat a bit healthier because of my laziness to go out and get specifically vegan versions I've layed off all cakes and chocolates. I have plenty more food-themed posts to go up next month featuring all the recipes I've discovered since going vegan. but since today in FINALLY my last day of the vegan week I thought I've give you a review and run-down of all my new favourite Vegan Snacks. 

The people at NutriBox very kindly offered to send over one of their new 'Slim' vegan snack boxes for me to try out when I was doing this Vegan week and so over the past week I've been trying out all the interesting snacks in the box (+ and taste-testing them on my friends too!) Some of them were a hit, and other's not so much but I suppose that's just the luck of a subscription box. 

7 Blogging Habits to take up in 2018


Hey lovelies! I feel like this year especially I'm more focussed on my blog and like that serious #GIRLBOSS 'I'm going to get this done' kind of motivation that I lacked a bit in 2017. Like a lot of bloggers, I'm determined to improve my blog even more this year, work with new companies, make great content, got to more PR Events and through this there are a bunch of different habits I realised I need to take up to make this happen. Usually I get overwhelmed with long 'strategy' or 'tutorial' articles telling me how to improve my blog, when to be honest your girl can't deal with all of that and wants a much more simplistic approach. Small, manageable little tasks that with a bit of time and dedication you can tick-off your To Do List easily. Hence this post! "7 Blogging Habits to take up in 2018," some of these you might already do, or some of them you might be slacking in, but if you're looking for small ways to take your blog to the next level, I hope you find this useful!
