It’s September! Which means it’s FINALLY Autumn! Get out the cinnamon candles, the pumpkin spiced lattes (I don’t actually like them – soz!), the ankle boots and fluffy socks! I’m so happy and excited, Autumn is my favourite season and I especially love the transition into Autumnal make up.

Dear Anxiety

sky-476817_960_720

I am sat here on my bed after a day of feeling absolutely crap, and I finally feel the need to vent all my feelings – to write them down and try to release some of the pressure currently weighing me down. 2016 has by far been my worst year in terms of my mental health. I know I have suffered with depression for at least 4 years but for the last year, anxiety has taken a massive toll on my life and it has been getting increasingly worse. I hit an all time low back in March 16 where I FINALLY went to the doctors for help. I was put on citalopram and I began to see a difference after a couple of months. However, my mental health reared its ugly head again and the last few months have been the hardest yet. I am now on double the dosage of my anti-depressants and I want nothing more than for things to get better.

As many of you may know I am trying my hardest to be healthier with my food choices, which is going really well. I recently found a recipe for this chocolate cake from Madeline Shaw’s ‘Get The Glow’ book and I thought I would recreate it. It is flour and gluten free, but you can’t tell – It is gooey and rich and tastes just like brownies! It turned out so well I thought I would share it with you all.

Healthy Snack Haul

Hello again internet lovelies, I’m back today with a food inspired post. I have recently gone on a healthy eating lifestyle change in a bid to feel better in myself and to lose some weight! So when I was in London the other day I popped into Planet Organic, the one on Tottenham Court Road in London, and grabbed some different healthier snacks to give a try! Basically because I am always hungry and I need snacks to stop me from grabbing unhealthy options. This post is not sponsored, I just am very passionate about eating healthier right now and I hope this can give you some ideas too!

So the other night I was feeling rather spendy. And that usually means I will have a browse (for hours) on the Boots website and put everything I lay my eyes on in my basket.. whoops.

I have been wanting to try some NYX products since Boots started stocking them and I am so happy I finally ordered some bits. Here’s what I got:
