A 30 Day Challenge to be healthier in January

5 causes of pigmentation conditions

As much of this picture shows, I promise I’m not a problem child, but honestly have always had the most ridiculous body. As most girls, I was on the pill since the age of 15 because of my mood swings and very heavy periods (sorry for any blokes reading this…) I had to...

7 Must Eat Foods for a Healthy Gut

Many of my friends and I have had awful stomachs, some worse than others but last year I was in and out of hospital trying to figure out what was wrong with me. It would swing from one extreme to the other within days and was ridiculously uncomfortable. I would have a literal food baby, but all the time.

Did you know stress causes weight gain?

Since hitting my 20’s I have always seen my weight go up and down, and while I know I wasn’t the best at doing exercise, nor did I particularly eat well on the odd occasion, last year I did eat very well and did exercise regularly. So why on earth did I not lose any...

Somebody please health me!

Is it really a week since I last wrote?! As the UK summer is basically over I feel I ought to finish the Pimm’s as it’s just staring at me at the moment and needs to be used up so I can start being healthy. Does anyone else do that? Say ‘Oh I just need to finish all...

Are your beauty products doing more harm than good?

FriYAY! I hope everyone has a fun weekend planned. I have always suffered from excema and more recently psoriasis (why is that word so hard to spell, thank god for spell checker!) I would always be putting on steroid cream on pretty much a daily basis and in every...
