Healthy Snack Ideas

Taking snacks when i'm going out is always a must, unless of course i'm going out for a meal. I tend to get hungry quite often throughout the day but rather than gorging out on chocolates and sweets all the time i prefer to go for some healthier alternatives. I thought that i would put together a little list of some healthy snacks.
  • Fruit such as apples or pears are generally quite easy to take on travels. 
  • Fruit & Nut bars, I like to buy Jordans fruit and nut bars as i find the ingredient list to be fairly simple.
  • Flapjacks, you can even make your own and add some of your favourite fruit.
  • Dried fruit, there are so many options of dried fruit that everyone is bound to find a favourite i personally love dried banana crisps.
  • Vegetable Crisps/Crisps, i like Walkers Sunbites as they don't have too many additives and are very tasty.
  • Yoghurt
  • Nuts & Seeds
  • Carrots or Celery with your favourite dip
  • Smoothies, i love smoothies as there's really no limit to how much fruit you decide to put in and they always taste so good

I hope that this gives you a couple of healthy alternatives to take on daily travels. Are there any healthy snacks that you like taking out with you? If so feel free to let me know in the comment section below :)

Mini Haul

I thought i would start my second post writing about some of my recent purchases that I've really been liking.
The first product i would like to talk about is the renewing Moroccan argan oil i picked up from boots for £6.99. It says on the bottle that it 'restores shine and softness' which i feel it does. Now i strongly believe in using natural products when i can, as i'm not very fond of the idea of using products full of harsh chemicals, so when i heard about the benefits of argan oil i wanted to give it a go since my hair had been looking a little dry lately. I have to say that it really does make my hair look smooth and feel nourished without giving it a greasy look. You only need a small amount to put through your hair and i would really recommend trying this product out if you're looking for a way to add some extra nourishment to your hair.

Here are some of the few benefits of Argan oil

  • Locks in moisture
  • Penetrates into the hair shaft enhancing its elasticity
  • Heals and restores dry/damaged hair
  • Strengthens hair

The next item i would like to talk about is this bracelet I picked up from New Look, as i have really been into Aztec type clothing and jewelry it was calling out to me. I bought it for £5.00, the bracelet itself is a lovely gold and i feel as if it just goes with anything, it's such a simple piece of jewelry that can be worn by itself and gives a nice touch to any outfit.

The last item i bought was another piece of jewelry, i'm not a big fan of earrings but when i saw these i thought it would make a nice change, i actually picked these up for free as there was a buy one get one free offer on at New Look and this was the cheaper item of the two . Again these earrings have an Aztec look and are a lovely shade of blue which i really like, the fact that it's also an ear cuff just adds something extra and slightly edgy.


A Little Welcome

It's currently raining here on this ever so typical British afternoon and i thought that this would be the perfect time to start a blog as it's something that i have been wanting to do for quite some time. I've recently been really into reading blogs and watching youtube videos about health, fashion and beauty and thought to myself that maybe i should give it a go and see where it takes me.

I have been really inspired by so many women out there who have ventured out into the youtube world, however i don't feel as if i'm quite at that stage. I am by no means a professional when it comes to writing but I would just love to be writing about the things in life that interest me and i hope that whoever comes across this blog would be interested in whatever i decide to write about.

I hope you are all having a loving day whatever it is that you are doing. Please feel free to leave any comments about what it is that you like reading about or leave any advice you have for someone starting a new blog :).
