Cupid’s Chocolate Raspberry Kiss

Hello February! 💖

The month of love is here! With Valentine’s Day next week, I thought about how I can treat my boyfriend without all the refined sugar and unneccessary carbs store bought treats are loaded with. As he has a serious sweeth tooth, I’m slowly trying to stir him away from his sugar addiction 😉.

This could be the reason why you are not losing weight

You know I’m slightly obsessed when it comes to healthy eating and exercising. There is no new food trend, superfood or workout I haven’t tried! But I found that at the end of the day it all comes down to eating clean and nutritious food. Easier said than done!

Because the food industry, too, has realized that people are on a wellness trip now and they are coming out with all kinds of “healthy alternatives”. Today when you enter a grocery store, many packages are labeled superfood, sugar-free, no added preservatives, organic and so on. But don’t be fooled! These labels promise a lot but if you take a closer look, they are mostly false friends!

The books you have to read if you want to change your life in 2018

One of my main resolution or rather goal this year is to finally quit the bullshitting and start tirelessly working towards my goals. Not listening to my mind telling me all this crap and constantly preventing me from truly being the person I was meant to be!

Besides listening to podcasts and watching youtube videos, I also got back into reading. There are so many amazing motivational books out there. I only have managed to read a few so far. Two of them had the most impact on me in the last year. If you are also determined to make your dreams come true this year, I advise you to pick up these two books, make yourself comfortable and start reading. You won’t regret it!

Mostly because I saw the first wrinkles form which really freaked me out (more than I would have thought). So I did a little digging and also started following some beauty gurus out there. I especially recommend Lauryn Evart’s blog The Skinny Confidential as I find her suggestions to be real and genuine.

Why you should switch to green cleaning products ASAP!

Last year I made the effort to „green up“ my life. This means swapping out any conventional products for more natural ones. It all started with me cleaning up my diet. I thought that when I watch what I put into my body, why should I not also care about what I put on and around my body? I started with skincare and make up products. The last thing on my list were cleaning supplies. Continue reading “Why you should switch to green cleaning products ASAP!”
