Just an update #2

This post is nothing special, it’s just an update on my life, I suppose. 🙂

Firstly I just want to say hey to all my new readers! I love having people comment on my blog – not for vain reason haha, but so I can check their blogs out too! I’m reading a bunch of new blogs right now. It’s awesome getting to know people, especially ones in other countries! I love blog hopping, also, (you know, like reading their blogs, then going through their comments and reading their… readers blogs hah). It gives me something to do when I should be studying.  If you don’t want to leave a comment, you can tweet me your URL and I’ll check your blog! I love reading them! read more

Home made face scrub #1

For awhile now I’ve been looking for a face scrub at the local supermarket or an online store that ships to NZ. Unfortunately, everything is over-priced or it’s a “daily” cleanser. I don’t really want to scrub my face daily, and I wanted something a little more rougher then a daily scrub, anyway. I don’t have sensitive skin so I thought a nice rough scrub once or twice a week wouldn’t do any harm. I feel like my face needs a scrub every now and then!

After complaining to a friend, she suggested I make my own. I watched a few Youtube videos and kind of forgot about it, to be honest. I didn’t have runny honey, so it just sat at the back on my mind for awhile until I finally remembered to ask Jared to fetch some from the store for me. read more

Green Smoothie!

I talked last week a little about my new George Foreman Mix-n-go (whatever it’s called). This week I took pictures while I made a smoothie! I wanted it to be all fancy how you see those recipe bloggers do it. But I’m not a fancy recipe blogger. I’m not even a fancy blogger. I am Fancy though. Jokes.

Anywhere. Here are some not so fancy photos:

Ingredients I used
Ingredients I used (minus the berries)

The ingredients I used were:

  • Half a lemon juice
  • a green kiwi fruit (I don’t like golden)
  • almond / coconut milk (I buy it pre mixed together, saves space!)
  • two bobby bananas
  • Plain yogurt. Which is actually very sweat and I should of gotten Greek instead
  • Kale
  • Celery
The mess I made

The main thing I hate about making smoothies is the mess I make. It’s not even that bad of a mess! But I dislike cleaning. 🙁 read more

    Monthly Favs #1

    Whilst blog hopping today, I read a lot of blogs that have monthly favorites. I don’t really want to add myself to the group, mainly because I always fail at these things (This one time, I posted a Friday favorites. Saying I would post every Friday. I think that was the last time I fail-blogged).

    I have a few things I’d like to share that lately I’ve been really enjoying.

    Fav place

    I love visiting my Grandmas place. More-so in the summer so I can swim, but any time of year and I’m happy. She’s kind of cut off from the outside world out where she lives. No internet (aside from 3G on the cell phones). We watched movies, I baked Santes Biscuits (and ate them, too!) and every day we took a nice short walk to one of the beaches. read more
