So whilst stumbling (www.stumbleupon.com) around on the Internet the other day I found the Green Monster movement, interesting I thought, after reading the web page and many reviews on the Internet, this green monster smoothie sounds AMAZING!! Not only is it meant to improve your energy but is also meant to help improve your skin and hair health. Perfect!
I have just made one now after purchasing some flax seed at Julian Graves. For everyone in the UK, Julian Graves actually has a 50% off sale at the moment on EVERYTHING!! So my big bag of flax seed was only £2.49, bargain! So it's well worth having a look if you need any nuts or anything.
Anyway I can report that a smoothie made out of spinach is surprisingly nice. I did add some berries to it, as I like my smoothies sweet and with just a banana it wasn't sweet enough for me, but it is a lovely smoothie and if it helps improve my energy and skin then I can't really complain! So for all of you looking for a new health kick I can definitely recommend this!
Let me know if you have any more healthy options!
P.S. Here are some of my favourite blogs at the moment so check them out! :)

It's been a couple of weeks but I've had my dissertation hanging over my head, but I handed it in on Friday and I had the weekend off, so I thought it was about time I made another blog post. I've only got two more pieces of coursework and one exam and then I am totally finished with undergraduate education which at the moment is a pretty scary prospect.
I fully intend to start doing outfit posts over summer, I just need to purchase a tripod so I can actually take the photos myself without bothering family members. I'm also going to get my Etsy shop back up and running when I have time to craft again. I am really looking forward to summer at the moment.
I hope you like all of the clothes I've chosen, I think they are all very cute and summery, I especially love the gingham bikini, think I might have to make a purchase. I really love the polka dot peg leg trousers, but I really wish they were in another colour, I really loathe to wear black when it becomes sunnier, so it really puts me off buying them. I've got a £5 off £20 ASOS voucher at the moment (thank you diet coke!) so just deciding what I might like to purchase.
I'm also planning a foundation review in a bit, once I've had a week to test out my new Clinique Anti-Blemish foundation. Let me know if there's anything you want me to cover.

I hope Spring is treating you well? It's been glorious here the past few days, so in my breaks in between coursework writing and Dissertation woes I've put together a quick Polyvore of beautiful Spring clothes. I hope you enjoy. Let me know what you think!

Happy Pancake day!! This is honestly one of my favourite days of the year, I love pancakes so much!! I was fully anticipating having pancakes for breakfast, lunch and tea but unfortunately Uni wasn't working with me and they had no pancakes so I had to make so with salad!! I have however just had four pancakes for my tea! The traditional lemon and sugar and then some nutella! Yum! Here's a fab easy recipe for all of you who haven't yet made any - Delia Smith Recipe!
Is anyone giving up anything for Lent? I'm not actually religious but I do see Lent as a good excuse to give up some of my cravings! So for the third year in a row I'm going to give up chocolate. As much as I love chocolate I actually really do enjoy giving it up, it's nice to have a break from it! Let me know if your giving anything up.
Sorry for the lack of posts recently, I've got two weeks until my Dissertation is due, as well as countless other pieces of coursework so I am a bit snowed under! I will be putting together some more outfits soon, and I fully intend to start doing outfits of the day once most of my work is finished for uni!
Happy Pancake Day.
