Happy Halloween! It’s that time of year once again when all things strange, spooky and out-of-the-norm become the norm! With all the sweet (tricks and) treats around us, it’s sometimes a little hard to stick to your healthy habits. Well, that was until I collated this wicked list of all things healthy and Halloween from different sources across the web.
The days are shorter, nights longer and we’re starting to crave those good old stodgy home cooked meals… Well, I have something that will brighten up your mornings and satisfy your hot food needs- Pink Wholegrain Berry Porridge!
Not only is it warm, delicious, and looks fab, it will actually keep you full until lunch time and is one of your five a day (as well as being super healthy in itself). Made with a variety of summer berries- think raspberries, blueberries, cherries and cranberries- and whole rolled organic oats, this is one healthy meal to make any cold winter morning more enjoyable. Here’s the recipe below…
Finding a cosmetic (or even edible) product on the high street that has absolutely no chemicals, preservatives or artificial alterations can prove to be pretty difficult, if not near-impossible! In fact, I’d not come across a skincare brand that only stocks all natural products until I was gifted a little tub of Sister & Co. lip tonic from a good friend for my birthday and did a little digging into the brand.
Beginning with organic cold pressed raw coconut oil, Sister & Co. now provide a whole collection of skin care products made with unprocessed raw superfoods. Although the products don’t last as long as the chemically enhanced ones that we see in the skincare market, which can last around three whole years (Sister & Co. up to one year), they are produced in small batches every twelve weeks and sent straight to market so are guaranteed to be fresh.
The range includes body scrubs, creams, hair drinks and lip tonics and they even have special products for men, mothers and babies. My Raw Coconut Lip Tonic With Rose Otto and Cardamom feels heavenly and I don’t have to worry that my skin is absorbing any nasty chemicals! A little pricey for a lip balm at £9, I would definitely say that it’s worth it- a natural conditioner to extensively hydrate your lips. See more from Sister & Co. right here.
After the success of my collaboration with Sian from lovesian TV, showing you our fave curly hair products, tips and tricks, I’m back with another video for all of you curly hair girls (and a couple of tips for straight hair gals too)!
