MY LIFE | My Thoughts on 50 Shades of Grey

I should start off by saying that I'm writing this post as somebody who has read all three books and seen the movie. I will continue by saying I didn't like the books at all, particularly the first one...so guess what? I thought the movie was awful too. For more than one reason!

My issue with the first book was that I felt it had no story to it, especially in comparison to the second and third instalments. So naturally, this lack of story transpired on screen. I also had serious issues with Anastasia's "Yes Christian, I love Christian, where do you want me Christian?" attitude - she had no back bone. I am by no means a feminist but I am a woman and I didn't like how weakly she was portrayed in the book. She is an educated woman and for the sake of other women reading, I just got very frustrated.

There must be millions of reviews of the movie online so instead of going in to huge detail, I'm going to mention what stood out to me.

NUTRITION | SariFoods Haul!

Leave a Comment


Don't you just love online shopping? I for one, am LOVING how easy it is to find great nutritional foods online, at a lower cost than I would in a store. Amazon, for example, impresses me every time I search for superfood's or any kind of food that you don't usually find in the grocery store.

Sari Foods is a company that sells on Amazon and recently, they were kind enough to send me their products to review for you all, my lovely readers. Sari Foods sell Nutritional Yeast, Spirulina and Vitamin C powder from Acerola Cherries. I have been really impressed with the company as a whole!  Their attention to detail and extra special customer service sets them apart from other online retailers.

For more details, as well as information about the benefits of these foods, carry on reading!

FITNESS | Fitness vs. Technology

Leave a Comment
In a world that is becoming more and more reliant on technology and health-concsious, it is not surprising that these two worlds have merged and there are an abundance of technological fitness products. It's turning in to a bit of a mine-field! However I do believe sometimes these products can be more of a hinderance than a help - which is totally not the point of technology! 

Below, you'll find information about the products I used or have used in the past to help me on my fitness journey, plus some great information about how these two fields are fusing to benefit people! 

Fitness | Waist Trainer Debate

For months I have been shocked to see the Kardashian's promoting these corset-style 'Waist Trainers' on their Instagram pages. Of course, like anything the Kardashian's promote, the Waist Trainer epidemic has grown massively. Personally, the idea infuriates me. Who remembers the scene in Pirates of the Caribbean where Keira Knightley faints because of her corset? The Waist Trainer is exactly the same idea. 

My Life | Travel Adventures in Denver

During the last weekend in January, I had the opportunity to travel up to Denver, Colorado! Denver was on my list of places to visit whilst I'm in the US for my study abroad year so I was excited to finally make it happen! IT was even more special because I got to meed my Dad there! He had flown over from the UK for a conference and getting the chance to see him out here was just magical! See below for more details about our trip!
