Recently in my church, there was a seminar on making healthy substitutes to processed snacks. Why? They are mostly high in all kinds of things you really don’t want in your body; eg processed sugars, sodium and/or weird unpronouncable chemicals. And don’t we all love to snack? I know I do – -a packet of plantain chips here, some sweet popcorn there, and don’t even get me started on mt love for chocolate Digestives. But lately, I’ve become more aware of my body and I am making a conscious effort to take care of it. After all, my body is the Temple of the Most High. So, I’ve been trying to make a concerted effort to eat healthy. Make you own chips!
I absolutely adore Lush cosmetics! My goodness, I could spend hours and oodles of cash in one of their shops. Their products have the best scents, and results ever. Every time I go in to get something specific, I leave the shop with at least one more product – no matter how much I try to resist!

Someone is always there to answer your questions, and make suggestions. This is beginning to sound like a Lush ad… 😀 But I love, love, love it!
One day, I went in for hair moisturiser (they have this absolutely gorgeous one called R&B- it’s the best thing ever I tell you), but I stumbled on a tea tree facial toner that I knew I had to try. It was one of the cheapest things in the store, and I was like, “Yup, I’m definitely taking this home.” It worked beautifully! But one of my friends (an amazing lady called Livvy who makes a large number of her cosmetics herself) recommended I make mine. See how to make yours
*I wrote this in May 2012, but made the video just this week (after the train incident which I talk about in the video). It came as a sort of shock. But not like a sharp-intake-of-breath, ground-breaking shock; more like a fuzzy-vision-cleared shock. A mild shock. I was thinking about how eyeliner defines the eyes. I cannot really recollect how my train of thoughts … Continue reading Boy Vs Girl: Make-Up
Lately, I have been eating like there is no tomorrow; as if food is going out of fashion- and it’s telling in all the wrong places! I have been trying to get myself back on track: managing my portions, cutting down, and I started running again. You can say I caught a fitness bug from my dad, who for the past seven (possibly more) years … Continue reading Lean Machine
Appearances can be deceiving! As I explain in the videos, I was surprised to find out that something I thought was much more healthy was actually not. Here are the pictures of the Guideline Daily Allowances: Enjoy! Xoxo Continue reading Look Before You Eat!
