Little Olive Tree Fractal Soy Candles

I’m on a serious candle craze at the moment and I think it must have something to do with the fact that it’s getting darker faster at night and it’s also getting much colder. There’s something nice and cozy about lighting a candle, putting on the heater, and snuggling up with a good book. It’s so relaxing and such a…

Make Your Own Natural Hand Soap

For the past six months I’ve been making my own natural hand soap. Ever since I realised what was in the store brought soaps I was using, I’ve been giving them a wide berth. Natural hand soap isn’t something that is easily available with only a very few brands selling them. Those that are available are often quite expensive, and…

Wait, You’re Supposed To Rest Between …

When I wrote my first couple of fitness blog posts, I wasn’t really planning to make them a regular thing however they’ve been so well received by you all (in fact, they’re some of my most popular posts!), so I’ve decided to keep this series going. I’m by no means good at the gym, I’m a total beginner and I’m…

Choosing a Scent for Your Home

I pride myself on having a clean and organised home, but something we can often forget about is the scent in the home. Home scents instantly set the mood and the tone right from when you walk through the door, and I think it’s such an important first impression. When it comes to finding scents for my home, I’ve been…

I Joined A Gym?

Today I joined a gym. Which to most people probably isn’t a biggie, but for me it’s massive. I’ve never been a sporty person, and while I do like keeping fit (aka going for walks), I’ve been a bit slack lately. I’ve always toyed with the idea of joining a gym, however I knew finding the time to actually go…

Travel Diary: The Catlins, NZ

In the weekend we headed down to the Catlins to enjoy a weekend away for the boyfriends birthday. The Catlins is such a pretty place and there’s lots to see and do so we decided to spend a night down there so we had two days to explore. We based ourselves in Owaka which just a little over a hours drive…

Double Chocolate Oreo Truffles

These double chocolate Oreo truffles, are pretty much my idea of heaven. I love Oreos, and I love chocolate, so combining the two together, I knew was going to be good!  I adapted this recipe from this one for Easy Oreo Truffles, and just added my own twist to make them a whole lot sweeter. While this recipe isn’t something you’d…

Fitbit Charge 2 Review

Today’s post is all about my new Fitbit Charge 2. I’m really excited to be writing this article, as it’s something completely different to what I’ve written before. I’m no tech-expert and I’m certainly not a gym bunny. I wanted a Fitbit in order to monitor how many steps I was taking every day and how much exercise I was…

GO Superfood Green Spirulina Tablets

For the past few months now I’ve been taking the GO Superfood Spirulina Tablets. I used to avoid spirulina at all costs as I’m really not a fan of the taste. I’ve always known how good spirulina is for us, so for a while there, I’d force myself include it in a smoothie and would absolutely hate every second while trying…
