I came across this questions on this months Cosmo magazine and thought it a good idea to recreate it so that you guys get to know me a little better. Let’s get up close and personal shall we?
First thing you do when you wake up in the morning? – I take a warm glass of lemon water that’s after hitting the snooze button 34,564 times ??. I have done this successfully for more than four years now. Lately,I add a teaspoon of moringa powder to help in balancing my hormones.
Welcome to day 5 of 12 days of Christmas!
Its Face time! Long post alert!
I know I have been quite vocal about my struggle with acne on here.It can be quite demoralizing to have great skin one second and a zit storm the next and the blackheads that follow leave me wishing I could peel my face off! I have tried so many products that have only left a dent in my wallet and no lasting effects on my skin. I always wanted to have a daily skincare regimen such as this (10 step Korean skin-care regimen recommended by a friend) but I was skeptical about the array of products I’d have to use on my skin. So, I settled for a simple skin-care regimen that consisted of products I had used, liked and had positive effects on my skin most of which are Nivea products. (Completely unrelated with the products am talking about today but If you are like me and acne is like a monkey on your back then consider trying the Nivea range of products they are quite gentle on acne-prone skin)
So, a couple of weeks ago I shared a green smoothie video on my Instagram stories and I got a lot of questions about the recipe ok not A LOT a little over five people wanted to know the recipe and that to me qualifies as a lot LOL. Anyway, I decided to do a post on the recipe not only because of that but also because of how simple the recipe is. It is so simple that my initial thought when I came across it on Instagram was, that can’t be right and if it is, it must taste like crap! It required just three ingredients: spinach, orange juice and bananas!
I hope you enjoyed your Easter holidays as much as I did.I spent the last couple of days on the road which meant eating from road sides and food stands mostly, which was interesting and a lot of fun definitely. But being back home I feel ready for a detox and energy booster to help me get back into the groove and normal everyday routine.
What are you up to this weekend? If you have a few minutes to spare here’s a simple recipe of my favorite mango smoothie that you can try out. It being the mango season you might have noticed that we have mangoes coming out of our ears at this point. Like a KGB they are everywhere and the good news is they are very affordable and, this recipe takes all of ten minutes to prepare and bam! You have a delicious mango passion smoothie!
It’s no secret…I sort of have a love affair with lemons and I know those close to me would definitely agree because I managed to get them to join my lemonade bandwagon.:-) A little over three years ago I embarked on a journey to make conscious changes in my lifestyle. Drinking lemon water first thing in the morning was one of those changes and it quickly became my go to fix for almost everything from dealing with stomach discomfort, to curing common cold, as an instant sinus remedy (especially), sore throat, heartburn etc. and recently an inexpensive beauty fix! Let’s focus on the beauty part shall we?
Around this time of the year I like to slow down, reminisce about my favorite moments, try to take the time to appreciate all the little and big things that were a part of my life in the past twelve months, and also to draw some conclusions about which kinds of things make me happy and which don’t. I believe in doing a yearly review and as 2015 comes to an end,its the perfect time to reflect and look back on everything I have experienced , discovered and achieved during the last 12 months.
