The prettiest season is here and blossoming beautifully! 

Spring is one of my favourite seasons because…

As the temperature heats up, people begin to crawl out from their Winter hibernation and hit the hills and the beer gardens.

Spring also means that Summer is on its way, which makes me extremely happy because after a cold Winter, all I want is a big beam of sunlight shining in my face. Bliss.

Spring is the beginning of festival season, when people come together, dance to great music and drink Cider.

Spring lifts everyone’s moods because sunlight is good for us, but it is not too hot that we can’t adjust (…well we can, but us Brits do love a moan!)

THE BEST OF THE FLOWERS ARE AROUND US. Wow. I have seen some beauties over the past couple of days and these were just in friends’ gardens.

So enjoy it and go outside!

Peace and love and Spring x

A perfect Easter Vitamin D-Detox that you will not forget!

After a weekend of a fair amount of chocolate and unhealthy bits and bobs, a detox was much needed! But instead of heading to the gym, I thought I’d take advantage of one of the most beautiful days of the year so far and climb a big old hill to burn off a few of the chocolate calories – and it was a great decision!

Before starting my day, I had a rainbow fruit salad for my breakfast, as I needed some vitamins and colour in my life, before picking up my friend and heading to Hay-on-Wye. It’s such a gorgeous little town and we had a walk round all the shops and lusted over some amazing looking fudge (but carefully resisted!) … However, we may have given in to ice cream temptation at Shepherds – no regrets! I had peanut butter and chocolate and mint choc chip…. Yes, this is still a detox if you’ve seen the size of Hay Bluff (the hill)!

It was such a gorgeous day to be doing it that I didn’t even think about the exercise… I highly recommend a day out walking up a hill if you are lacking fitness inspiration – the views were absolutely incredible. And I must have burned off a few eggs and the ice cream at least!

Vitamin D from the sun can prevent bone abnormalities, brittle bones and can help increase resistance again some diseases. The sunshine is also a mood enhancer, which will lift you out of your easter chocolate coma!
