Revise with me for GCSE Mocks // Stress + Tips


Hey lovelies, how are you all doing? Whether you're still in school or not anymore, I'm sure all of you can remember the stress of 'Exam Season' and that's exactly what I've been going through this week too. Although I'm only taking my Year 10 Mocks, the amount of work I've had to set myself this half term has been crazy and while I've done a couple of revision posts on my blog - this week really took it to a whole other level. I've planned out timetables, made hundreds of different flash cards and smothered everything with pastel highlighters... and guess what, I'm will still always feel under-prepared! Anyway, in this post I thought I'd share with you a few helpful and realistic tips for managing your revision, as well as some inspo pics of how I take my notes and keep myself organised. Since I know many of you are in the same boat as me right now, whether it be mocks, GCSE exams or A-Levels, hope you find this useful. 

My 5 Blog Photography Tips for Grey Days!


Hey lovelies. I'm back with another #BloggingChatter post which I haven't done in ages, and this time on: Blog Photography. Even though we're nearing to Summer, all other UK Bloggers can relate when I say: the weather just can't make up it's mind. I'll get days of glorious sunshine perfect for gorgeous blog photos, and other days when outside is so grey and gloomy that the natural lighting is just no good. As a blogger this is the most frustrating thing, especially with deadlines and for me (being at school) limited time to actually take my blog photos at the weekend, but over time I've learnt a few tips and tricks along the way for helping this. So here's 5 Tips for achieving flawless blog photos ... even on those Grey Days! Hope you find this post helpful and let me know what future #bloggingchatter advice posts you'd like to see soon. 

5-Min Fluffy Chocolate Pancakes // Vegan Recipe!


Hey lovelies, back with another recipe and now onto one I've been meaning to do for ages: Pancakes! Pancakes had always been a Breakfast Treat for me, on those lazy weekends where I had more time to spare but now (after a bit of pancake-flipping practice) I can whip them up in 5mins. And that's where this recipe comes in: a stack of fluffy chocolate pancakes, Vegan, relatively healthy, and with only a handful of ingredients. 

So often I would look up Vegan recipes and they would contain a list of 15x different ingredients, including all different health foods I'm just too broke to have in my kitchen cupboard like 'Buckwheat Flour,' or 'Ground Flaxseed' so this recipe is perfect for the average person like me. All you'll need is that one over-ripe banana sitting in your fruit bowl and a handful of other ingredients you already have, and you're good to go. If you love American-Style fluffy pancakes, and all things sweet and chocolatey - you should definitely give this a go. 

Get Healthy with Me // A May To-Do List!


Hey lovelies! I've seen a lot of people do these 'get healthy with me' posts and I think it's so motivating to write down your goals for the month like this, plus it means you guys can actually hold me to them. You all know I love all things fitness // food // and health but although it started off good, April just wasn't the month for me. I don't regret indulging over Easter at all... I mean family meetups, chocolate eggs, cakes and treats, who could resist? But even though I had so much fun over April, coming back into May I ended up feeling a bit sluggish and so this Month I'm determined to 'Get back on Track.'
The basis of this post isn't just 'Healthy' as in gym related, although that is high on my list this month, but all round little goals and tasks I want to do this month to look after my body both physically and mentally! Hope you enjoy and let me know in the comments below what your plans are for May.

Sweet Banana Flapjack Bites // GF Recipe!


Hey lovelies, how's your week going? After a beautiful Bank Holiday weekend in England, I decided to do a bit of baking and going along with the theme of 'sweet treats-made healthy' here's a post on my new favourite recipe: Banana Flapjacks. 

Flapjacks are one of those cakes that are deceptively unhealthy. You think, oats, raisins... healthy enough right? But what you often forget is all the unnecessary sugar, butters and syrups that go into flapjacks, when the fact is: you just don't need all of it! In this recipe, ripe banana is used to help bind the mixture, along with natural honey and coconut oil as substitutes for the usual not-so-healthy ingredients and it still tastes delicious if not better.
Hope you enjoy this recipe, I spent most of my Bank Holiday weekend munching on them by the beach - and let me know in the comments below what sweet bake you'd like me to 'make-healthy' next on my blog!
