I love my herbal teas as you’ll see in this video and if you struggle to get enough water into you day herbal teas are great for taste and hydration!

These teas can also help with digestion (mint), detoxing (dandelion, milk thistle, licorice) skin purifying/ calming (nettle/ chamomile/ lemon balm) and sleep. So as Mrs Doyle would say go on, go on, go on!

It can be hard when we are living busy lives to make healthy choices all the time but when you feel a snack attack coming on there are healthier bars we can choose from.

Here are some of my favourites bars including Bounce Balls, Nakd, Creative Nature, Rude Health, The Food Doctor, 9 Bars and Trek.

The main reason I carry some bars around with me is so that i have something healthier to hand if I have been rushing about and forgotten to eat and as I don’t want to have long gaps between meals I find having these bars in the car and my handbag really helps!

If you are looking for a natural make up that feels and looks great on your skin then check out todays video



  1. Long Eyelashes Mascara n°01 – Black €20.00

  1. Compact Foundation No. 14 – Golden Beige €33.00


The stick form of this foundation makes it easy to take with you anywhere, great for travelling and putting in your handbag.

Suitable for all skin types, especially good for normal, combination and oily.


  1. Silk Powder €26.00 The final touch!


This is the softest powder I have ever felt. It sets your make up perfectly and you wouldn’t even know you had it on! It has a really delicate and extremely sheer texture.

Welcome to day 2 of my new video series and today is one of my favourite quick and easy mood boosting smoothie full of good fats including:

Avocados: I predicted and hoped last year that this little fav fruit of mine is finally going to have its year in 2016 and maybe just maybe become the new coconut oil! Avocados are nutrient dense and contain around 20 vitamins and minerals. They are great for our skin, hair, energy levels and can help with depression because of their high levels of folate. So what are you waiting for?


  • Large handful of Kale or Spinach
  • 1 small Avocado
  • Large handful of frozen mixed berries (I buy them fresh and freeze them as I don’t like warm smoothies and these berries are still my wexford berries as I bought a lot and froze them!!)
  • A small handful of mixed seeds and
  • A small handful of mixed beansprouts (The Happy Pear sell them/ Supervalu)
  • 1 Teaspoon of coconova extra virgin coconut oil
  • Fill to the line with Coconut Water

Happy New Year everyone,

I hope you had a great night ringing in the New Year. I love January because for me it represents new beginnings, new opportunities and a new chapter in the book of life.

New years resolutions are great as long as they are realistic and don’t entail you completely overhauling your daily routine into an unrealistic difficult and boring list of things you think you should be doing.

It’s January so it’s still winter, short days and it’s cold so we need to nourish ourselves with great wholesome food and mind ourselves as we enter the New Year.

Make your goals and resolutions for 2016 fun and realistic. A healthy lifestyle is not just for January but the whole year through so find what works for you and remember – small changes make a big difference.

Whatever 2016 has in store for you I wish you a very healthy, happy and prosperous year. Subscribe to my You Tube channel for lots more videos this month. I have great smoothie and juice recipes and great make up and beauty tips too.

Thanks for watching!!
