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

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
