Forget Detox, Let’s TeaTox With Carmién Tea

I’m all about giving credit when credit is due, but probably not so much when it comes to myself. Are you the same?

I must, however, give myself a pat on the back for making a change and sticking to it. During the heart of Winter, I said goodbye to my night time snacking and got back onto the straight and narrow by following a healthy eating plan and upping my fitness game.

Then I hit a bit of a slump. Although I already lost a few kg’s and was continuing to stick to my plan, my weight plateaued and I needed something to give my metabolism a boost again.

That’s why I was so happy when Carmien Tea sent me their Teatox plan to try out.

Spring Goals

Spring is in the air, flowers are blooming and we can smell that the end of year is near.

Like me, I’m sure that many of you are beginning to feel the pressure to achieve the goals you set out for yourself at beginning of the year.  We shouldn’t be too hard on ourselves if we don’t get to achieve each and every one of those goals. Things change, life happens and priorities shift.

It also doesn’t mean that we should give up  – so perhaps the start of this new season is the time to take stock of what we would like to realistically achieve. For me, I’m keeping things simple and focussing on what’s going to make me happy!

Beauty Lifesavers For Busy Moms

If you’re a busy Mom like me, your time is limited – especially in the mornings, trying to get the whole family ready for the day ahead. I’m really not a high maintenance gal when it comes to make-up, but I still like to look and feel pretty – so I make a bit of an effort to look “MY best” every day.

But time is of the essence and it’s almost impossible to spend a lengthy time getting myself ready in the mornings as I have 2 little ones hanging on my dressing gown, for one reason or another.

So I am always on the lookout for hair and beauty products that can save me some time, but also give great results. Of course, I still want to look good when I leave the house in the mornings and not like Alyssa or Aidan done my hair and make-up!

So with that in mind, I thought I’d share some of the products that have done exactly that for me over the last few months – tried, tested and loving!
