Healthy Banana and Chocolate Muffins

I don’t have a major sweet tooth problem, however often when I’m eating clean or trying to be very healthy then I always crave something sweet, around mid-afternoon or in the evenings after dinner. Even though I try to eat healthily, I like to have something small that will help curb the sweets cravings, so I’m always trying out healthy alternatives.

Sheba Feminine Hygiene

One of my goals for 2017 was to try to be more environmentally conscious, this meant trying to use fewer chemicals, minimizing the use of plastic and ensuring that I use biodegradable products. Choosing this approach can be overwhelming for all of us, but like I always say in my blog posts – “it’s about progress and perfection”. I was very excited when my cousin introduced me to Sheba Feminine Hygiene products, as they support this philosophy. I was even more excited to know they are locally produced by a young black entrepreneur.

Dry Brushing

September means it’s officially spring here in the Southern hemisphere, so most of us will be spring cleaning our homes, detoxing and exercising a little more. Even though they say summer bodies are made in winter, it’s not summer yet so we still have a chance to get ready. I decided that this would be the perfect opportunity to chat to you guys about what has been the best part of my evening beauty routine for the past few years – dry brushing. I try to dry brush for about five to ten minutes every evening and although there are many great benefits to dry brushing, I would like to focus on just four benefits that really got me into it.

Mihlali Ndamase

When I first got into blogging, I never imagined that I would end up meeting so many great people. Mihlali was one of the first ladies I managed to connect with on a personal level. I randomly came across her YouTube channel while watching some of my favorite local beauty/makeup videos. I followed her channel and social media and then ended up booking her to do my makeup. She is as funny, humble and genuine as she appears on her channel and is also obsessed with fitness and taking care of her health (something we both have in common). 

DIY NATURAL LIP SCRUB

It can be really tricky to keep your lips moisturized, especially during the winter months. Starting a lip care routine can help you avoid cracked, dry lips and leave you with moisturized and kissable lips.

My all time favorite lip scrub is really easy to mix and contains only three ingredients that most of us will have in the kitchen. 

Coconut Oil

What it is:

Virgin Coconut oil is extracted from the fresh meat of raw coconuts. It is then cold-pressed, filtered and thus able to retain its classic coconut smell. Ideally, virgin coconut oil should be as clear as water. However, its colour may vary slightly depending on how it is processed.
