Health & Fitness: My Juice Plus Diet Journey

Hi Beauties!

So hands up; how many of you out there are struggling to loose the pounds? If your hands up then I was once there with you all and I was also of those who loves food a bit too much and hated working out; actually I still do love food and hate working out.

But I wanted to do a post based on my Juice Plus journey, for those of you who haven't heard of this brand of weight loss supplement then it is made of essential nutrients from fruit and vegetables. Not only that but it provides a fab variety of breakfast, lunch and dinner recipes, smoothie recipes and detox plans to help you on your journey. And as you can see it is working for me...

Here is my three months progression - and my journey hasn't ended there AT ALL. I have been working out twice a week for the first part of the dieting, recently I have relaxed a bit because I don't want to depend on this diet. I know all about crash diets but this is a way to completely change the way you eat and look at food.

I have my holiday in three weeks so I'm doing well to maintain the position I am currently in, I will start working out again and I am hoping the next time you see my in next to nothing on my blog I'll look hot in a bikini at the beach. So here's to the next three months of healthy eating!

Anyone else tried Juice Plus? Leave me some links so I can see your journey.

Outfit of the Day: Royal Ascot 2014

Hi Beauts!

I can not believe it has been almost a week since I entered the fabulous Grandstand of the Ascot racecourse for the second year running. A big lover of dressing up, hats and horses once again I was in my element but this time I went with my boyfriend, mom and step-dad.

This year I based my outfit around the vintage dress I found in Canada in August last year....

At a bargain price of £12 I new it was perfect for this event and just had to hunt down a hat to go with it. Luckily I found this Jasper Conran hat in the Debenham sale from £90+ down to £28 - again another bargain.....

Here are some photos of the day...

If you have never been to horse racing or Royal Ascot I would definitely suggest you go as something to tick off your bucket list!

Did you go to Royal Ascot this year? If so please leave links!

Take a peak at what I wore last year!

Haul: Superdrug 3 for 2 Beauty Haul

Hi Lovelies

I decided to take full advantage of the 3for2 beauty offer currently running in Superdrug at the moment, it was the perfect timing as I have been keen to purchase some new items for my make up collection.

I was about to run out of my HG foundation which is MAC studio fix fluid, I have been using this liquid foundation for about 8 years and decided it was about time I found a dupe for the days when I want to save a bit on my make up that month...

My dupe for Studio Fix Powder has to be Rimmel Stay Matte powder, so purchased this also......

As my eyebrow pencil has nearly finished I also picked up the Beauty UK pencil and i'm very impressed by the brush....

Did you take advantage of the 3for2 offer? What did you buy, leave some links below!

Healthy Eating: Detox Water

Hi Everyone!

Recently I have been drinking lots and lots of detox water, I came across this interesting way to drink water online. We are supposed to drink about 1 litre of water a day, I personally find drinking that amount hard. Why? Because water is boring to me, I love flavour and so when I came across this I was SO happy.

It is one of the easiest things you can make when trying to be healthy. All you have to do is add fruit to water and leave for a few hours or overnight so that it infuses together and then drink. If you want to eat the fruit after  you can.

My most recent detox water is strawberry, I find he strongest fruits like citrus are the best tasting - Pineapple is one of my favourites.

The benefits of detox water is it's a natural detox, helping flush impurities out of your system. No matter the flavour when I drink this I know that I am filing my systems with the required amount of water I need a day and the nutrients from the fruit/veg

The best detox water is lemon water and the benefits of that are:
Clears skin
Balances PH
Ais digestion
Natural Diuretic
Boosts immune system
Helps with weight loss
Hydrates the lymph system

Have you tried detox water?


My Memory Jar

Hi Folk!

I've been meaning to start up a Memory Jar since the start of January but with me being me I kept forgetting to actually buy a jar to be able to do this.

So what is a memory jar you might ask? 

Well it's a place to write down memories that stand out to you - good or bad - mainly good memories though, that you put into the jar for that year. You can also put in anything such as tickets to events and keepsakes etc. As long as it can fit into the jar and you still have room to fill it with memorabilia throughout the year you're good to go.

You can decorate the jar anyway you wish to, mines pretty simple at the moment as I'm not a 100% sure what else to add to it. I have put some marble like stones with confetti at the bottom of the jar...

You have to wait until the end of the year, and then open your jar and go through all your wonderful memories. So far mine is filled with good memories, I want to be happy about all the things I experienced this year when I go through mine......

Do you have a memory jar? If not why don't you start one up, it's not too late to remember all the good stuff you've been through so far this year! And if you have jar leave your link in the comments so I can see yours.
