Tribe – Box opening and Review

As someone who is dairy free I’ve really struggled to find protein powders that are both free from dairy AND stevia. ‘But what’s wrong with stevia?’ I hear you say, well for some reason my body doesn’t like it and I get the most horrendous headaches and then stomach pains. The majority of natural plant based protein powders out there…

Mini Lush Easter Haul 2017

I love a bath. Like, really love a bath so whenever lush has a new seasonal range I do my little happy dance and head on down for a bit of retail therapy. I’m fortunate enough to have the Oxford Street store as my local, and as soon as I step through those heavenly scented doors I’m like a kid…

Perhaps it’s the realisation that time is flying by ever quicker, that I’m about to leave university and be…

I’ve had a blogging revelation!
