Plastic Free July – Simple Soap Swaps

As Plastic Free July draws to an end, here’s a little reminder that those new habits you’ve made can be kept forever. Plastic Free July is not just for summer – it’s for life! Some of the changes you have made may have been difficult, and some very easy. I always start on the “one…

Tea Recipe… Hemingway Mojito Mocktail

Welcome to my monthly tea recipe feature! As the sun’s been shining brightly on us all, I’ve been feeling the cold brew bug, and this delicious recipe with one of Leaves of the World’s brand new summer teas, is the perfect way to relax on a hot sunny day. With the Bank Holiday weekend almost…

Scrub Naturally with The Salt Parlour

If you already exfoliate your skin, you’ll know how good it feels, and you’ll be enjoying the benefits. Even skin tone, less spots, an even tan, a close shave, and a bright complexion. What’s not to love? Well, some of the ingredients in exfoliating skin products are rather horrible. Including little tiny plastic particles called…

Random Tea… Drink Your Vitamins

When Alice fell down the rabbit hole and obediently followed the instructions on a little bottle, I’m not quite sure that shrinking was quite what she expected. Much like Alice’s mysterious drink, the super-teas from T Plus give you a little something other than simple refreshment – but instead of shrinking you, it will help to keep…

Random Tea…Tealogists Matcha Green

So, we know by now that I’m a big fan of matcha green tea – not only does it taste great, it makes you feel great too. It is, quite simply, stone ground green tea. But the leaves are specially selected, which means that it has 40 times more antioxidants than spinach, kale or acai…

Lean Greens – Pure Goodness in a Tub

There are days when even the healthiest of us don’t manage to fit in our 5 a day. Being vegan, it doesn’t really happen that often, but it happens from time to time, and it’s really quite easy to eat a veggie diet without getting at least 5 fruits and vegetables on a daily basis….

Pure Chimp Super Tea (Matcha Green Tea)!

It’s the New Year and time for all those promises to yourself to get healthy, fit or try new things. Well, Matcha Green Tea is certainly a health boost (especially if you’re trying to cut down on your coffee intake) and it’s probably new for many people too! I was very kindly sent a tub of…

Random Health… Good for you energy drinks!

Yes, it’s possible. A drink which will give you a pick-me-up at any time of day, without being filled full of sugar and a huge caffeine hit. Little Miracles are aptly named, and are filled with organic tea, fruit juice, acai berries, and panex ginseng (in it’s purest form). And they only contain 90 calories…

Random Tea… Chocolate Orange Goodness!!!

It’s National Chocolate Week! On reading back over past posts, however, it appears I write about chocolate quite a lot (hmm, I wonder why) and I thought I’d mix it up a bit!  And it just so happens that the lovely people at Revolution Tea sent me a sample of their Orange Chocolate Green Tea to…

Game, Set & Matcha

Wimbledon is in full swing at the moment, and if you’re like me you might be wondering how to get a little of their energy. Well, I have one way I can think of and it involves some lovely green powder, a whisk and a pretty bowl.  No, I’m not making a potion, just some…
