This blog combines my love for indulgent yet nutritious healthy treats and my passion for living a balanced lifestyle.

I’m only 22 and I can honestly say I’ve tried nearly every diet under the sun – Atkins, Tea detox, Mediterranean, high carb low fat, you name it. I had to reach rock bottom before I realised that these diets were not getting me anywhere, sure I was a size 6-8 but I wasn’t happy and I was a nervous wreck. So this blog is really based on my own journey and experiences and I hope that I can help you with your own weight or body image struggles and show you how there truly is no need for dieting or restricting yourself, doing so is just such a vicious cycle.

I have always loved food and as a kid I was known for my sweet tooth, creme eggs were a staple food in my diet, but because of health issues I decided to improve my eating habits and I was amazed to discover that healthy eating wasn’t boring at all and that you could still have dessert. I constantly experiment with healthy dessert or ‘clean candy’ recipes and now I truly believe that these desserts taste ten times better than their processed counterparts because they haven’t been dragged through various manufacturing processes or coated with chemicals, so their flavour is much richer and natural. My discovery of healthy food has reignited my passion for baking and it has provided me with a creative outlet. However, even though I do love living a healthy lifestyle I am a firm believer in the importance of living a balanced life, it is important not to get too caught up on ensuring that you are always eating healthy, you need to enjoy life too. I am also a big fan of fashion and interior design especially simple and minimalist styles – I think there is just something so beautiful about the simplicity of certain clothes and furniture so this will be incorporated into my blog too.
I hope that my blog inspires you to embrace life, to pursue your passion and encourages you to be creative. Happy reading!
