Green Smoothie - A Kickstart to your system!

This smoothie is one that I definitely unsure about to begin with, blending leafy items was a new one for me and sounded slightly strange.. It does have a unique texture but I actually quite enjoy it and it really does make me feel healthy, full-up and glowing!
The texture may seem a little strange to start with but it's nothing bad - Promise!
This is excellent for a hot day where you don't feel like eating much as it's packed full of goodness and you'll be getting your 5-a-day all in one!

1 Pink Lady Apple - Peeled and chopped
1 Small stick of Celery - chopped
3 Handfuls of chopped Kale
1 Handful of Baby Spinach leaves
1/5 large Cucumber (about 6 inches) - Diced
300ml Almond Milk

1. Firstly put the handfuls Kale and Baby Spinach into the blender and pour over 200ml of the Almond Milk, then blend for approx. 2 minutes until in a liquid form

2. Add the Apple, Celery, Cucumber and the rest of the Almond Milk and blend for a further 2 minutes to ensure there are no 'leafy-bits' and it is smooth

3. Pour into a glass and Enjoy!

Healthy Eating Update

So for the past week, me & the boyfriend have started a new Super-Healthy eating regime!
It includes smoothies, lots of lean meat and salads and I have to say I am really enjoying it so far!
I feel like I have a lot more energy, my skin looks better and I have been able to try out new recipes too & I love a new kitchen adventure!

I'll be posting some recipes over the next couple of weeks, so if any of you need or want any new & healthy inspiration for the kitchen..
I have always loved eating fruit and vegetables so this eating style isn't too much of a chore for me overall but i'm not saying I haven't wanted to grab Ben & Jerry's or a chocolate bar once or twice!

(It's definitely working.. the boyfriend has lost 4 pounds already!)

Here are some of our favourite meals so far:

Baked Courgette Fritters
Ceaser Salad
Kale & Spinach Smoothie
Lemon Chicken with Fresh Herbs

Keep an eye out for the first recipe coming later this week!
Happy Bank Holiday!

Blue Eyes ft Forever21, Romwe, Oasap, Wholesale7 & T K Maxx

Shearling Coat (similar) - Romwe
Stripe Dress - Forever21
Desert Boots - TK Maxx

Happy Saturday!
This dress has become my new favourite for everyday. For only £7 at Forever21 I was almost tempted to buy one in each colour! It's amazing quality, a gorgeous colour and an amazing fit! I meant it - go grab one now for spring! It was super windy here so I layered up with this awesome denim shirt-jacket from Wholesale7 (free trial win!) and my trusty shearling coat I nabbed in the Romwe sale last year!
Enjoy your weekend guys!
I'm off to eat a delicious baguette and listen to some classic 80s hits..

Mothers Day #cakebypost with BakerDays!

The new way to celebrate - petite and personalised cakes  delivering perfectly fresh and delicious cake through the letterbox from just £14.99
You can’t always be there to share a special occasion with a friend or loved one.  But you can let them know you’re thinking of them by sending something which is personalised and therefore unique.

So what can you get as a surprise for the mum you think has everything?? A personalised cake is something I had never thought of before being contacted by BakerDays! When they asked me if i'#d like to review one of their cakes I jumped at the chance!
I must admit I was a bit sceptical, a cake - in the post?? Really?? But how wrong was I to even think for a second that it wouldn't be a delicious and fantastic experience!

It arrived in the post in a normal looking white cardboard box.. straight through the letterbox too so no need to even panic about not being in when it's delivered! Upon opening I found a beautiful pale blue tin with wording details, a blank gift card to write a message in and also a little treat tube of love hearts - I thought the way it could be personalised was perfect for any recipient and I know my mum would absolutely love one!

I opted for the 'to the moon & back' design and it looked even more vibrant and amazing in real life than it did in the picture online.. I am still amazed by the graphic detail that goes into the design! The flavour of the cake in question was chocolate chip sponge and it tasted as amazing as it sounds! I was worried that it might be a little dry as it had been i the post but the tin definitely kept it fresh - it's the perfecta accompaniment for tea and coffee! It could very comfortably serve 3-4 people (up to 8 in smaller slices) as an afternoon treat and that's what makes it so perfect as a gift as it isn't so gigantic that you cannot possibly enjoy it all.

I would definitely recommend the BakerDays website as they have a cake for almost every occasion and with a price tag of £14.99 it's the perfect thoughtful gift and many of the variations can be personalised too!

Pistol Queen ft. Forever21, Topshop, Primark, SpyLoveBuy

Black Draped Blouse - Forever21
Tartan Shorts - Forever21
Studded Clutch Bag (Found a listing!) - Originally Topshop
Barred Platform Boots - SpyLoveBuy

Hi There! Happy Friday!
Sorry it's been a while since last posting but I've had one of those sneeze-a-thousand-times-a-minute kinds of colds for the past few days! I'm heading out for breakfast with my parents this morning and hoping the sun will be shining!

This outfit is quite a powerful one for me; i've always loved anything Tartan, Studded, Platformed.. tick there to all 3 in this one! Forever21 is one of my favourite shops and getting these shorts for £13.50 full price was just amazing! Grab some while you still can! This top is also a F21 bargain and I think is my favourite buy this year so far! I can dress it up or down with skirts, shorts, layered over a dress.. the possibilities are endless! It has that feminine and classic touch that I love so much..
The boots you have probably already seen and will definitely be seeing more of due to the sheer platform of awesomeness mixed with the total comfort these still provide! Put together with the beyond awesome clutch bag from Topshop that my sister gifted me for Christmas (Thankyou Leanne!) and the most comfortable leggings I've ever bought from Oasap (complete with a 'heel anchor' that makes them stay put on your feet they are the perfect tights-leggings combination!
Please note, I am not wearing this out for breakfast with my parents, but looking at the powerful nature of it gives me that Friday Feeling! I hope you all have it too!
