Hello friends! (said in >>Ava Ryan’s voice<< at about 1:40 into the video - but you have to watch the whole thing cause this little girl is so freakin' cute) One of my favourite types of accounts to follow on Instagram is foodie accounts. ....Because, well, it’s food. Do I really need to say more?! Foodie accounts are THE BEST for meal ideas, particularly when they’re healthy, and they always get me in the mood to do a little cooking and experimenting with new recipes. Aaaand while I'm in awe of meals that look like works of art, I find myself most inspired by foodies who share simpler every day meals - you know, recipes you could actually make on a day-to-day basis. So, I thought I'd share ten of my favourite insta foodies so they can give you guys as much inspiration as they do me! … View Post
HAPPY MONDAY GUYS! Here’s your dose of motivation to help you kick-start the week on a positive note. Let’s all try to be a little kinder, a little wiser and take care of our body and minds whilst hustlin’ our way to our goals.
P.S. Keep ya’ eyes peeled because I have new blog posts on their way! This last week has been bit of a blur (uni has been mentally taking it’s toll ha) and I took my own advice and gave myself time off this weekend to rest and revive. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend too!

Ok so lately something has been on my mind and that something is kindness. Or, I suppose, a lack there of?
For me, kindness has always been high up on the priority list, I didn’t care if it wasn’t considered “cool” or not, it was a quality I’ve always wanted to possess. But recently, I’ve gone from thinking about kindness from a shallow perspective to one that runs much deeper. And believe it or not, this was all spurred on by a lil’ altercation I had with someone over instagram DM’s haha!
Long story short, this women was being super rude to me and although I was upset about the situation I was proud of myself for handling it gracefully (come on girls lets uplift eachother and not pull each other down!). Anyways, the funny thing was her instagram feed portrayed a person that was exceptionally kind; she even had the phrase ‘good vibes’ written in her bio. How ironic right?!
…And then it occurred to me, she’s not alone, I’ve known several people to be not-so-kind despite declaring across social media how important it is to be kind… Now, don’t get me wrong, I am ALL for promoting kindness, but it’s almost as if their kindness comes with terms and conditions?
This got me thinking – how many of us can actually say we show unconditional kindness? Because I know I can’t. I may not reserve my kindness in the same way these other people do, but hey I find it SO damn hard to be kind to people that haven’t shown me kindness. Oh, look what we have here, terms and conditions. But I think most of us have terms and conditions of some sort. When you stop and look around you notice a lot of people are only kind to the people they like or relate to, but c’mon that’s easy. The real challenge is showing kindness regardless of how people treat you, regardless of any jealousy you have towards someone, regardless of stereotypes, regardless of occupations, regardless of cultural differences, regardless of age, etc.… View Post
Recently I have been craving chocolate SO badly; for me it always seems to be something that comes with uni assessment ha! I’m not one to deprive myself of any food, buuuut more often than not I want a chocolate treat that doesn’t come with a sugar rush. So I dug up this old recipe I adapted from a book called ‘The Blender Girl’ by Tess Masters (you should definitely check it out) and I can’t believe I hadn’t made them in forever because they’re actually the best.
What I particularly love about these is that they’re high in fibre and healthy fats, two things which a lot of us don’t get enough of! Oh and if you’re scared about eating healthy fats, you should totally check out these two scientific articles on why they’re so good for your health >> here and here.… View Post
GUYS IT’S SPRING! Or should I say Fall for those of you on the other side of the hemisphere 😉 Despite the fact that I have SO much assessment due, I’m surprisingly chipper ha. I think it’s because a new month always makes me excited and also, I can’t wait for the weather to start warming up! Anywhooo, I’ve decided to do a monthly favourite because there were so many products I was loving in the month of August and well, it would just be plain rude not to share.… View Post
