5 Things: November Favourites

You may have noticed it’s been a little quiet over here on the blog lately. I’ve been feeling a bit overwhelmed with everything we have to do with the house etc, so blogging kind of took a back seat for a couple of weeks there. The last thing I felt like late at night was writing a blog post, or…

My Easy Halloween Costume: Halloween 2017

While Halloween isn’t as popular here as it is in the States, it’s definitely gaining momentum year after year. I remember when I was a kid, Halloween was something that was never really celebrated and the stores never really had a lot of Halloween costumes or decorations. I went trick or treating only once as a kid (and of course…

How I Broke My Coffee Addiction

While I wouldn’t say I was coffee addict per se, it’s definitely something I used to have quite a lot of. I would enjoy 2-3 cups a day at my peak coffee drinking times, which I know isn’t much compared to some people (I used to know a guy who had 11 cups by lunchtime!). But caffeine does have quite…

We Bought A House + Goodbye Dunedin?

Aaah yes you read that title right, we have finally bought a house! I never thought this day would actually come as it’s been a long time in the making! I actually started looking for a house to buy about five years ago. Clearly I’m extremely picky as I never found anything that I actually loved. Nearly two years ago,…

Fitbit Alta HR Review

A while back I did a review of the Fitbit Charge 2 and it was such a popular post. So much so, that I’ve teamed up with Fitbit to bring you a review of the new Fitbit Alta HR. While I loved my Charge 2, there were a few issues I had in regards to the size and bulkiness on…

Chocolate Bliss Balls That Are SO Easy!

For the past few months or so, the boyfriend and I have been very particular about what we are buying when we visit the supermarket. Instead of leaving with a trolley full of fizz, chips and chocolate, like we used to, we are only buying healthy foods. We’ve dropped a lot of snack foods from our diet and we no…

Recovery Drinks + My Lululemon Obsession

Lululemon is one brand I was a bit late to the party with, but now absolutely love. I bought my first Lululemon piece at the start of this year, and it’s safe to say I’m now obsessed. Yes, it’s a little pricier, but the pieces are so stylish and made from the best fabrics, so it’s definitely worth it. Today’s…

Why Workout Gloves Are A Good Idea

Since I’ve started doing weights at the gym, my poor hands have taken a beating. Yes, I’m probably a bit of a wuss, but I’m definitely a girly girl and my hands are pretty soft. The continual picking up and lifting of weights has meant that I’ve ended up with some pretty nasty blisters and calluses as a result. Not…

Does Dairy Free Help Acne?

It’s been over two months since I committed to a full dairy-free diet. For the most part, sticking to the dairy free diet has been really easy. I’ve become obsessed with plant milk and coconut yoghurt, and I haven’t had a bit of my beloved Whittakers Creamy Milk in over two months. I sort of missed chocolate at the start, and…

Apricot and Almond Muesli Recipe

I’ve never been big on breakfast, and it’s only recently that I’ve actually found myself starting to enjoy eating the first meal of the day. For me it was always smoothies, and while I still 100% love these, it is nice to mix it up and alternate options for breakfast too. The other thing I’ve always loved in the morning…
