May 2016 In Pictures

Hello, how are ya?

I'm pretty good, I've just had a few days off from work which was definitely needed this month has been pretty full on work wise so having time for anything else just hasn't happened. I have managed to take a few pictures over the month though so I can show you what I've been up to and what I've been loving....enjoy!


I haven't eaten any sugar for weeks other then adding a few blueberries and cherries to a smoothie once or twice a week which doesn't seem to be upsetting my skin, yay! My favourite combo right now is cherry, blueberry and chocolate with a little added extra from Indigo Herbs SuperVital Powder, a delicious and filling way to start the day now the weather is warmer. I'll post the recipe for this soon. 

Vegan Pesto

I have been making some awesome vegan pesto lately, I decided to make my own because the bought varieties either contain cheese, sugar or are really expensive so making my own just makes sense. This is basil and cashew which I can confirm is bloody lovely, again recipe to be posted soon. 

Coconut Oil

The lovely guys over at Vita Coco were kind enough to send me these two pots of coconut oil and as always I have been using it for all sorts of things from cooking to beauty. Such a versatile awesome product it will never get old for me! 

Herbivore Botanicals

I have been using these yummy products from Herbivore Botanicals, as you know if you read my blog I have been having a nightmare with my skin and having heard rave reviews about Herbivore Botanicals I thought I'd give them a go. I bought the Lapis face oil and Bamboo Charcoal face soap. So far so good the oil is gorgeous and I put it on every night, the soap makes my skin feel so clean, I only use it 2/3 times a week as my skin doesn't like being washed everyday but it seems to be helping yay! 

My skin has improved so much lately that I have actually been wearing my hair up! I may sound crazy but I was so self conscious about my skin that hair down was the only option but now (although my skin is not completely clear) I feel so much more confident I am putting the locks up more often.


I took a couple of the ladies from work to Cardiff for a few days as one of them is a huge Dr Who fan. We went to the Dr Who experience and they really enjoyed their time away which was great, although pretty tiring and sometimes stressful for me it was worth it to see them have a fab time. 

Dog Walking

Having a few days off this week meant I got to take these cuties out for walks, the top one is Dale's sisters dog and we took him for a long walk where Dale goes fishing and he loved it, the other belongs to my friend Stef and he is the cutest Jack Russell. I went to Stefs for the day and we took Eddie out for a walk then went to hers to look through some old photos which was hilarious. 

So although I've been MIA round here I have been busy working and enjoying life this side of the screen. I know I always say it but I am hoping to blog a bit more over the next fews months I have some exciting things coming up and stuff I want to share with you so we'll see. 


Have you had a good May?


  1. Your smoothies always look so beautiful! And glad you are feeling more confident with your skin, it's glowing in that photo.
