I love No Bake Energy Balls, they are super easy to make and grab out of the fridge, they travel great and they taste like a treat. What I love the most about them is that you can mix it however you like to suit your taste, but in general, they are made from just a few simple ingredients that you always have on hand. I have been trying a lot of recipes with oats recently because they are high in fibre and keep you fuller for longer and this recipe for healthy oat energy balls is a winner. All the ingredients were mixed together in just a few minutes, and as someone with a sweet tooth, they are a great, healthy snack. read more

Returning to where it all started, I was doing an impromptu shoot with my sister at the location where I shot my first blog post and we were joking about all the bad content we put out when I first began. This conversation got me thinking about all the blogger mistakes I have made and I’m sure many bloggers have made as well. So I decided to put together a list of the 5 biggest mistakes I’ve made as a blogger & how you can avoid them.
I just turned 22 and it definitely snuck up on me. You never realise how quickly life is moving until your birthday comes around. I’ve lost friends, gained friends, fallen in love and made mistakes, both big and small. For the first time in a long time, I am feeling optimistic about getting older and I am finally embracing all the highs and lows that come with being an adult. I usually don’t look forward to my birthday because my birthday is usually a sad reminder that I am not where I thought I would be at certain points in my life. My biggest fear in life is not achieving everything I want to achieve. However, this year I have decided to embrace my new age and acknowledge the fact that everyone else is still figuring it out.
Here are my 22 lessons in 22 Years:
Internships are a funny one, most internships are unpaid and interns are usually overworked. However, they are also a great opportunity for you to ‘learn’ and also try out different roles for short periods of time. I have heard so many horror stories about internships and how people have been taken advantage of for no pay or very little pay. There are so many issues with fashion internships, but, taking on a few internships early in your career is a great way to gain experience as well as figure out what your interests are.
PROS: Great on your CV | Confidence boost and great for making contacts | Possible paid role at the end if you’re good | Great Learning experience | Little commitment – can always leave if unhappy.
CONS: Full-time job commitments & hours without the pay | Waste of time if the role is not what you expected. read more
Spring is officially upon us! I usually welcome spring with a certain level of disdain because I live for cold winter days. However, after much deliberation, I have decided to embrace spring and enjoy all the amazing things that come with this season. I decided to write this post on all the things I am grateful for this spring. I have decided that I am going to be thankful & focus less on the negatives Spring. So here is a list of all the best things about Spring:
Since I went Paleo, the most difficult thing for me has been finding sweet treats. I have such a sweet tooth and banana bread is one of my favorite things to make & eat – Find my Vegan Paleo Bread here. I recently discovered this Paleo Banana Bread recipe by Chef Pete Evans (here) and I immediately tried it out for myself. It is delicious and tasted just like a regular banana bread but it was sugar-free & gluten-free. I added some Pecans because I love pecans and I knew they would go well with banana.

Blogging for me has and will always be a hobby, I started blogging when I was in secondary school and getting ready to do a degree in Economics. I knew that I needed a fashion outlet to escape my boring school life and blogging was a great outlet for that. When I first started blogging, I kept my blog a…
Pancake day is circled, starred & highlighted on my calendar. I can happily eat pancakes all day long and there is one day in the year when I can do that with absolutely no judgment. I love to eat oat pancakes for breakfast so that is what I will be making this pancake day. The beauty of this recipe is that it…
