As Easter is now my new fav holiday to celebrate (thanks to my pet rabbits) I could not wait to try out this recipe by Dr Joanna McMillan who is the Nutritional Advisor for Freedom Foods.
I am a big fan of Freedom Foods from the cereal to muesli bars I have been very impressed with everything I have tried from the range and am often stocking up when I see the range on sale at Coles. I won’t lie I have no idea how to read the nutrition information on the back of any box but what I do know is Freedom Foods have great tasting items in their range that are better for you and your waistline. Crafted Blends clusters are all gluten free and feature fruit and nutty goodness. They also are free from artificial colours and flavours and 100% Australian made and owned!
I am so excited and a little nervous to share this post with you all. I had the opportunity to try out Lipo Freeze at Smart Skin Clinics Coolaroo.
I have my own body demons like many. I have always hated my thighs. I have always been more bottom heavy. My thighs have made me cry. I don’t wear jeans because I feel like I look so big in them. I literally live in leggings and wear the occasional ‘jegging’ but still feel so self-conscious.
You must be living under a rock if you haven’t noticed all the floral walls and monogram floral letters popping up on your newsfeeds. You can blame Kanye for the floral wall phenomenon.
I would love to admit that I love working out but I don’t.. who’s with me? In saying that I LOVE the way I feel after I work out which Is why I am trying to keep up an active lifestyle as of late.
Getting to a gym can mentally be a pain for me personally. Getting to the gym can be even more frustrating! I was always trying to get on a treadmill during peak hour at Fernwood and would always have to opt for another machine until the treadmill was free.
I also get very intimated whilst at the gym.
Woo Hoo guest post-Mondays! By the lovely Emma Edwards enjoy ladies and gentle giants.
On Tuesday, I was invited to attend Flow After Dark by Flow Athletic at Melbourne Town Hall on behalf of Zerin, as she was unable to attend. Never one to turn down a health and fitness escapade, I naturally obliged. Silent disco yoga? Ummm yas!
I had the pleasure of attending the @nextofficial_au runway with my fabulous girlfriends. Let’s just say a delivery stuff up caused me to just throw anything on (yep a jumper, skirt, glasses, and ‘party shoes’ Voila #sofashion #whatthefuckamiwearing
As many of you know I attended the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival this year. You would have already seen all the amazing street style outfits, all you favourite celebrities/socialites in only the best, along with all the wardrobe envy outfits on the runway.
Last year I was kindly gifted a pack of household care items from Modere.
Modere stocks all the goods us ladies love, from haircare, skincare, makeup to protein bars and even probiotic support. Let’s not forget our men ladies.. there is even items for the lads, dads and brothers in our lives. How did I come across this company? #instagram. So what was in my gift pack?
Yesterday I had my first ever express microdermabrasion at my local Laser Clinics Australia. I was really looking forward to this treatment as I have heard nothing but good things about it.
So it’s that time of the year again where Melbourne’s finest come out to play! Who’s excited for Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival? I sure am! Ever since I was a little volunteer at the festival I just feel in love with the entire event.
I love lipstick! They can change my mood instantly. When I wear a red lip I feel very sexy, a little sassy, kinda like my inner Christina Aguilera comes out. The color red just gives me life and a little confidence. Funny how a little lippy can do that.
So I was kindly gifted a three day cleanse from Eat Fit Food. I have seen some of the meals via other blogs that I follow and have heard really good feedback, so I was looking forward to trying it out.
We had a few issues with my delivery address so I had to organize a courier to deliver the food to my workplace. I received my three day cleanse in three separate cooler bags.
I received my meals on Friday which was a real bad day to start a cleanse. The meals were generous in portion size and packed well.
Another food related post you lucky ducks!! It seems I am giving Nigella Lawson a run for her money as of late who would have though in just four months of living with my partner I would be cooking this much! I am honestly loving every moment of it even the cleanup.
I had the pleasure of interviewing the stunning Candice Warner. For those who don’t know Candice is mother to two little angles, an athlete and wife to cricketing legend David Warner. While Candice is always on every red carpet guest list. Candice is a self-confessed ‘faux-cialiser’… who would rather enjoy a night in indulging in a Connoisseur choc mousse then a star-studded event… now I know your all thinking what is a faux-cialiser? Find out below.
I have been loving sweet potato fries lately. I think they taste just as good as normal fries. I haven’t really cooked with sweet potato much in the past so when I was asked to feature a recipe from Sally’s book Love Move Eat, I could not wait to give this recipe a shot.
For those who don’t keep up with my Instagram updates, I recently took part in a 30-day sit up challenge.
I have always suffered from bloating. I don’t have a flat stomach area but I sure do have a bludge that really annoys me. After trying on bridesmaid dresses along with everything I have been purchasing online that I had to send back due to feeling disgusted in my own skin, it was time to do something about it.
Firstly welcome to my first post in my new ‘fitness tab’. Can you believe I have a fitness tab?
I was pretty pumped to be one of 25 lucky ladies to attend the KAYA Health Lab Summer Series event held at Kaya Health Clubs.
To be honest I was feeling a little nervous about attending the health club as all the girls I have seen who post selfies there are perfect looking models/bloggers with those Kendall Jenner legs for days that I clearly don’t have. I was wrong it was not intimating at all and I did not feel out of place one bit.
After being super jealous of all the gorgeous selfies being posted on my Instagram feed of ladies and gents applying the L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Masks it was time for me to put this little pot of genius to the test!
I was kindly gifted the L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Mask – Detoxifying + Brightening Charcoal Mask. I could not wait to apply this to my face. I simply used a foundation brush to basically paint my face. The texture was not as thick as I thought it would be and rather smooth and refreshing.
As much as I would have loved to add more Valentines day content to my blog this is just gonna have to do.
February 14th has come around so quick! I thought I would make some ‘cliched’ heart cookies that I found on the Donna Hay website.
Feeling pretty special to be featured on Hey, it’s Chel – a lifestyle and travel blog maintained by Chel Inumerable. Find out what I am getting up to this Valentines Day here lovelies.
I was pretty excited when the lovely people at Blys pronounced ‘bliss’ contacted me to have a complimentary massage to feature on my blog.. how could any blogger say no to that? #theperkshey.
It has been around 5-6 years since I’ve shamelessly had my last massage. It’s not that I don’t enjoy a massage. I am always gifting friends and family members a pamper session, yet I won’t book myself one!
When it comes to styling a home I am no pro. It’s bloody hard work. I am three months into styling our first home and I just feel like so much is missing! I don’t know what to buy, what goes with what, do I want some colour? I am pretty lost at the moment but I am so lucky to have some expert help.
It’s an honour to have Christie Turvey from NEUE BLVD shares her top Tips and Tricks to make your space instantly stylish and chic.
If you follow my socials you would know that I love a burger or two. Last year I was lucky enough to attend the launch of Royal Stacks on Collins Street, catch up here my fellow burger lovers. #amateurwritting
Royal Stacks have continued to go from strength to strength opening more stores throughout Melbourne over the last 12 months and adding more to the menu which I was lucky enough to sample.
After seeing Nadia Bartel in the Mirelle Dress by Misha Collection I just feel in love with the detailing of the dress, the gold tones along with the length and not to mention convenient arm straps. My arms might be thin but they are getting cellulite on them (joys hey) as I have no boobs I just look broad in anything strapless (the off the shoulder trend is truly a blessing for my broad sisters out there).
I thought I would post my first empties on my blog as it has been a little while since I have posted a beauty related piece and feature six products I have been loving that have simply come to an end.
It’s a pleasure to have guest contributor Bessie Hassan feature on my blog. As I am only a few months into living out of home the tips below are just what I needed to get my adult on hehe. Enjoy ladies.
So you’re ready to enter the world of adulthood and tackle your first year out of home. But let me tell you from previous experience, it’s a lot easier than it sounds.
I was delighted to be invited to the second annual Canadian Club Racquet Club launch. The weather was just perfect for the event overlooking the Australian Open.
I don’t really know much about tennis but I love the buzz the AO gives us Melbournians. Last year I was so impressed with the festivities held at Birrarung Marr, I could not wait to attend again (catch up on last year’s post here ladies)
Just like that, 10 days have past and the yearly holiday that us 9-5ers all look forward to has sadly come to an end.. time to hit that snooze button and have multiple cups of coffees to get us through this thing called work-life.
I had one of the most laid back holidays ever. While everyone will be talking about their beachside getaways. I am so excited that I got to catch up on some ‘me’ time which I really needed as I have spent the last few years on my holidays working my second job and stamping people in a nightclub for a little extra cashola.
So what did I get up to?
I am just going to start this post and say it. Who doesn’t love dick?
Benjamin from Cockolate and I have a lot in common. We love dick and both have similar personalities – and we’re not uptight at all. We’ve been having a little fun via emails (all in the name of good content, of course) and that’s how I ended up talking to you about Cockolate.
