Outfit #2 Beachfront Evening

Beachfront Evening

This outfit is based on the amazing red bandana halter top I managed to nab in the Ragged Priest Sample Sale the other week! I am going to wear it when me and the boyfriend go away for our 5 year anniversary in July so this is an example of how i'd style it up!
Not too dressy, not too casual and perfect for the seaside!

Green Smoothie - A Kickstart to your system!

This smoothie is one that I definitely unsure about to begin with, blending leafy items was a new one for me and sounded slightly strange.. It does have a unique texture but I actually quite enjoy it and it really does make me feel healthy, full-up and glowing!
The texture may seem a little strange to start with but it's nothing bad - Promise!
This is excellent for a hot day where you don't feel like eating much as it's packed full of goodness and you'll be getting your 5-a-day all in one!

1 Pink Lady Apple - Peeled and chopped
1 Small stick of Celery - chopped
3 Handfuls of chopped Kale
1 Handful of Baby Spinach leaves
1/5 large Cucumber (about 6 inches) - Diced
300ml Almond Milk

1. Firstly put the handfuls Kale and Baby Spinach into the blender and pour over 200ml of the Almond Milk, then blend for approx. 2 minutes until in a liquid form

2. Add the Apple, Celery, Cucumber and the rest of the Almond Milk and blend for a further 2 minutes to ensure there are no 'leafy-bits' and it is smooth

3. Pour into a glass and Enjoy!

Healthy Eating Update

So for the past week, me & the boyfriend have started a new Super-Healthy eating regime!
It includes smoothies, lots of lean meat and salads and I have to say I am really enjoying it so far!
I feel like I have a lot more energy, my skin looks better and I have been able to try out new recipes too & I love a new kitchen adventure!

I'll be posting some recipes over the next couple of weeks, so if any of you need or want any new & healthy inspiration for the kitchen..
I have always loved eating fruit and vegetables so this eating style isn't too much of a chore for me overall but i'm not saying I haven't wanted to grab Ben & Jerry's or a chocolate bar once or twice!

(It's definitely working.. the boyfriend has lost 4 pounds already!)

Here are some of our favourite meals so far:

Baked Courgette Fritters
Ceaser Salad
Kale & Spinach Smoothie
Lemon Chicken with Fresh Herbs

Keep an eye out for the first recipe coming later this week!
Happy Bank Holiday!
