What I Got For My 18th Birthday!

Green Smoothie Recipe


I mentioned this green smoothie in my June Favourites (which you can watch HERE if you'd like) so I thought I'd create a post on it so that you can refer back to here at any time. 

I keep trying my best to be healthy, but what doesn't help is when something healthy tastes disgusting. I'd much rather eat one of my favourite Triple Chocolate Cookies. So I keep trying out different smoothies to find out which tastes best - and here's one I enjoyed: 

First off pick a fruit juice base, preferably 'not from concentrate' as this makes it more fresh.
I chose this one because I wanted to create a green smoothie. 

Then pick what's to go into your smoothie: 

Spinach: Dark leafy greens like spinach are important for skin and hair, bone health, and provide protein, iron, vitamins and minerals.

Cucumber: Cucumbers are good sources of phytonutrients (plant chemicals that have protective or disease preventive properties) such flavonoids, lignans and triterpenes, which have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer benefits, according to World’s Healthiest Foods. 

Lime: The health benefits of lime include weight loss, skin care, improved digestion, relief from constipation, eye care, and more. 

The lime (juice of half a lime) I find sweetens the smoothie and cancels out the quite bitter taste of the spinach.

The amount of contents to put into the smoothie depends on how much you want to make.

Amsterdam Photos (Day 1)


Hey Guys!

If you haven't seen my previous posts, you wouldn't know that I went to Amsterdam 2 weeks ago! You can see a video of what I got up to HERE! I had the most amazing time, and want to document my photos on here so myself and others can look back at any point - enjoy :)

Our hotel was Nadia Hotel which was right near Anne Frank's house (which I'm looking at in the photo!)

I'm sure many of you have seen this well known monument before, and of course me being the tourist I am had to pose with it!

Where can the I Amsterdam statue be found?
The I Amsterdam monument can be found in Dam Square or by the Rijksmuseum (there may be more but these are the two I found)

I hit my shin trying to climb on the 'a'!

Talk soon,

Amsterdam Video Diary!


From Monday 22nd - Thursday 25th of June I visited Amsterdam with my Mum for my 18th Birthday present. The city is absolutely beautiful - with plenty of places to see and visit - with delicious foods to eat along the way. Both my mum and I had an amazing time, and I'd like to thank her and my dad sooooooooooo much for the experiences and opportunities they allow me to pursue. 

I am going to be uploading separate blog posts based on what we got up to, but I have also put together a montage of footage along with some music so that you can have a greater insight to what we got up to!  

I hope you like it!
