REVIEW: PINK PARCEL SUBSCRIPTION BOX*

Once a month us girls endure the dreaded time of the month and it often comes around and hits us hard. I suffer badly with back pain and severe stomach cramps and sometimes even have to stay in bed all day to sleep it off. None of us look forward to the time of the month and I don't know about you, but I spend the time in pain and thinking about all the chocolate I want to stuff my face with as a little pick me up!

REVIEW: ST TROPEZ SELF TAN EXTRA DARK BRONZING MOUSSE*

If you know me, you'll know how much I love a good fake tan session. I love being bronzed and it makes me feel 100% more confident when I have a tan. I have tried endless brands before; from Bondi Sands, to Loving Tan and St Moritz and I have repurchased the St Tropez dark bronzing mouse a number of times (especially during my university days when it was important to rock a tan on a night out!) I have been eyeing up the new St Tropez extra dark bronzing mousse for a while now and I am so excited to share my review and results with you.

REVIEW: NORDGREEN WATCHES - A DANIEL WELLINGTON DUPE?!*

Classic style watches are very in at the moment. I've seen SO many bloggers and influencers with their stylish Daniel Wellington watches on instagram and I've been itching to get my hands on something similar! I was contacted by a company called Nordgreen who I'd heard of before who sell beautiful minimalist watches with a similar style to Daniel Wellington. They kindly offered to send me a watch and a couple of interchangeable straps and as soon as they arrived I fell in love.

APRIL FAVOURITES

Firstly, soz that there was no March favourites post, but he ho here's a combined March and April favourites. Secondly, why is 2018 flying by so quickly? Does anyone else think that April was virtually none existent? It feels like yesterday I was celebrating my birthday in February and now we’ve officially hit spring (although the weather in the UK is certainly NOT playing ball with us at the moment – where has the sunshine gone?!)

REVIEW: MY FAVOURITE BERRY SMOOTHIE FT LEAN GREENS*

Throughout the last couple of months, I've being consciously working out harder than ever before and am making a real effort to stay on track with my eating. I often find that I don't like a lot of healthy breakfast options and so tend to reach for a smoothie packed full of yummy fruit and goodness. My all time favourite smoothies to make are berry based smoothies, but I think it's important to get your greens in too so I've been adding my lean greens supplement into my smoothies and let me tell you, they taste so good!!
I have never used supplement powders before and I will honestly say I was very sceptical at first. The super greens supplement claims to help you banish your bloating, crush crippling cravings, optimise digestive healthy and give a natural energy boost and I thought it'd be just another gimmick, but I was pleasantly surprised.

SO WHAT IS LEAN GREENS?

Lean Greens is a food supplement company whose produce a range of powders to help with weightloss and bloating. Their products are designed to taste good on their own and are packed with lots of nutrients. The super greens powder is packed full of spinach, broccoli, blueberry and blackcurrant extracts, green tea and lots more. To be completely honest I didn't like the taste of the powder on it's own and would've struggled to drink it every day just mixed with cold water, however mixed into a smoothie it tastes delicious.

I like to mix x2 cups of orange juice, 5 handfuls of frozen berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries) and a couple of handfuls of ice with x3 scoops of the powder, then top it up with water and blend. It tastes just like a berry smoothie and you can barely taste the green powder.



MY OVERALL EXPERIENCE WITH THE SUPER GREENS POWDER
I've been using the powder for nearly three weeks now and I must say I wouldn't miss it that much if I stopped using it. I do feel as though it helped with my bloating, but I still felt hungry (that could be just because I love food) and I didn't like the taste that much. That being said when it's hidden in the smoothie, I'm getting all the added benefits and nutrition without much effort. 



My energy levels have definitely increased and I am feeling more energetic when I do a workout in the gym which is making me work harder, so that's definitely a positive.

All in all, I think that the Super Greens Powder is a great easy way to get your greens into your diet and is definitely convenient when you have a busy lifestyle. It does also definitely help to decrease bloating.

The Super Greens Powder is available to buy from their website for £25 or on Amazon here!
