Hangover Cure for Your Skin

Over my past 10 years of drinking (my mum reads this blog so I’m only going to admit to 10), I’ve learned a trick or two about hangover survival. I’m not going to bother with the whole “eat this or that”, everyone has their own thing here, but I want to focus on saving your skin post-binge. Your skin bears the brunt of your lifestyle choices so consider this is as a way to make amends. I woke up Sunday morning with raging headache, a gurgling stomach and a mouth that felt like sandpaper. The dreaded hangover had struck! Quit […]

Paleo Sour ‘Cream’

When learning I was lactose intolerant I wasn’t really fussed by having to give up milk, I liked it and all but figured there’s plenty of more nutritious alternatives. However giving up delicious dairy products like cream and ice-cream has been a massive struggle for me. My tastebuds say yes, but my gut says no. Rather than give up on creamy deliciousness, I’ve been researching and experimenting to find acceptable dairy free substitutes. This sour cream recipe has been a godsend for me. It’s really tasty and substitutes amazingly well across a variety of recipes. You can use it raw, […]

This range is infused with Argan oil, CoQ10, Sea Buckthorn, Omega 7 combined with plant stem cell technology. You might have noticed I’ve been pretty quiet on the hair care department, with most of my focus on organic makeup & skin care reviews. This is not due to my lack of trialling, but rather my general disapointment. A lot of products I’ve tried are drying, or don’t detangle properly or on the opposite end, leave my hair feeling greasy. Finally I’ve […]


Raw Carrot Cake with Cream ‘Cheese’ Icing

Carrot cake with thick, cream cheese icing was always one of my favourite cakes. Carrot completely changes the texture of a traditional cake and makes it something so much more. What I love about carrot cake is down to three things: carrots providing the awesome texture, warming spices and tangy cream cheese icing. Since having to give up gluten I haven’t been able to enjoy this old favourite. That was, until I tried a raw carrot cake at my local health food cafe. Now I can have my cake and eat it too! I’ve scoured the Internet and experimented to […]
