Skinny laMinx – By Heather Moore

Skinny laMinx – By Heather Moore

I have long been a fan of the Skinny laMinx brand. It’s not just the beautiful designs and quality that I love, but the whole package. I have a gorgeous Skinny laMinx apron that I got for my birthday a couple of years ago, which I absolutely cherish. In fact, I am loath to cook […]

“Tell Me More About QMS?”

“Tell Me More About QMS?”

I have been falling more and more in love with QMS Medicosmetics over the past year. I first became interested in the products when I saw Tori and Fran raving about them, and decided to go for one of their facials. I walked out of that first facial a believer. Their products are the only […]

Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been involved with Super M‘s competition to send a Blogger and one of their readers to Ibiza to report back from the huge party at Ibiza Rocks Hotel in 2013. I was a bit apprehensive at first since I’m competing against the biggest Blog in the whole wide […]

Virgin Active Wellness Wednesday: Crunch Time

With just eight more working days (!!!) before we hit the beaches of Thailand, it’s beach-prep crunch time. I’m really trying hard to stick to a fat busting eating plan, just for the next eight days. Especially because I plan on eating my way through Bangkok for two days as soon as we land. I’m […]

Gift Ideas For Christmas 2012

Gift Ideas For Christmas 2012

I’m not sure if you’re aware, but Christmas is happening again this year and it’s less than a month away. I won’t be doing much shopping this year- Nash & I are taking each other to Thailand, so we won’t be doing the whole family Christmas gift-swapping. But that doesn’t mean I’m not keeping my […]

Online Shopping Is The Way To Go This Christmas

Online Shopping Is The Way To Go This Christmas

Supposedly, this is the “most wonderful time of the year”. But for most of us, it would be more accurately described as “the most stressful/expensive/exhausting/headache-inducing time of the year”. Work loads are on overdrive, bodies and minds are tired and credit cards have been swiped thin.  Hell in a red and white disguise. The thought […]

Summer Transformation Competition Winner

I had so many amazing entries for my Summer Transformation competition that choosing the winner was almost as tiring as running a 10km race. Not that I’d know, of course. I got stories from tired students, over-worked moms, under-appreciated girlfriends and everyone in between. As I said before, some of the entries were touching, others […]
