For the love of coconuts


Coconut water some think of as a marmite thing, you either love it or hate it. I for one absolutely love it and use it in so many different ways. Last month I was kindly sent this amazing package from Vita Coco* (which I was over the moon with) and thought I'd share with you the different ways I like to use coconut water as well as just drinking it straight from the carton. It's taken me a while to create this post as I wanted to test out various recipes over time to give you a more than accurate post.

Myself and Tony love a good morning smoothie or juice in our house and use coconut water as the liquid base for them. I don't really follow any recipes but chuck random stuff in and hope for the best (which sometimes fails). Our favourite recipe out of them all is the one pictured below:

Green smoothie- Coconut water, avocado, spinach, frozen mango, a teaspoon of honey and one banana.



I do really enjoy drinking Vita Coco water on its own straight from the carton. It's great for hot sunny days as it helps to hydrate you and makes you feel quite refreshed. Being low in fat, good for your skin, helps digestion, rich in nutrients and helps reduce blood pressure this drink is a godsend. 




Welcome to our fridge, constantly stocked up with coconut water and have branched into the flavoured ones too (Lemonade one being my ultimate favourite). 

I also like to use the original *Vita Coco coconut water in my porridge as it makes it quite light to eat and a bit more easy to digest. It's nice to top it with Deliciously Ella granola and some fruit which makes it such a lovely wholesome breakfast. 


Another way you can use Coconut water is when making pancakes. I use gluten free flour as I have a slight intolerance to it and also my sister can eat them too so pass the recipes on. Again the coconut water helps to make the pancakes light and gives a slight tropical taste which prevents them being too stodgy and heavy. I use the coconut oil to grease the pan when cooking and also as a face mask and tooth whitener (let me know if you would like to see a post on this). 




There are many reason as to why its good to drink Coconut water and many ways in which you could include it into your daily/weekly routine without you even noticing you've used it. 

Are you a Vita Coco fan? Do you enjoy drinking Coconut water?

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
