The New Year is upon us, people and I think we’re all either excited or anxious or afraid or all three. It’s that time of year we’re (whether we want to or not) looking back on 2017 and what we achieved or didn’t and thinking of what we want 2018 to look like for us….

Breakfast food for the girl on the go; OATS

Hey people, another day to be thankful for 🙂 Most mornings, it’s near impossible to fix your own healthy all inclusive breakfast so you chuck a couple of slices of bread and some tea. And it’s pretty much the same thing day after day. And then your tummy is suddenly a little fluffier than last…
