I grew up in a family of smokers with both my Mum and Dad being heavy smokers. Later my sister and step-sister became smokers, with me giving it a whirl for a whole month when I was 15 – I hated it though. I hate the smell, the smoke, the coughing and obviously the health implications that are connected to it so as a teenager I vowed to never date a smoker. Previous relationships were always with non-smokers until Aaron came along and “fate” or whatever you want to call it decided that I’d fall in love with him – a smoker. Luckily for me he jumped on the vaping bandwagon before it became popular and now I love that he vapes.
Halloween is all about getting dressed up, scaring your family and eating many, many things that aren’t good for your waistline – which is probably why kids love it so much. It’s a great time to throw a party and there are so many fantastic Halloween themed spooky recipes out there including this awesome graveyard chocolate pots idea.
The lovely people at Rachel’s Organic have provided me with some of their delicious yoghurts for this recipe. They come in loads of different flavours so rather than using vanilla for this recipe I went with ginger as we’re ginger-obsessed in our house (and chocolate goes well with ginger). Check out these very simple graveyard chocolate pots and decorate them with scary RIP biscuit gravestones (recipe also included).
You may have seen that I’ve already covered Juice Plus a couple of times on my blog, having tried the shakes and their Boosters previously. The one part of Juice Plus that I haven’t touched (and to be honest never will) is their capsules. Are the Juice Plus capsules really all they’re cracked up to be or is it just over exaggerated nonsense? If you’re a rep and your reading this, only go on if you really want to learn something about your product.

You know, I’ve never really sat down and typed about my personal battles with this because I deal with it alone. I know this isn’t the way it should go and if you follow me on Facebook and Twitter I quite often share articles then comment telling people to speak up, to talk to someone and not go at it alone – hypocrite much? With today being World Mental Health Day I thought it would be appropriate to at least put something down in writing, to at least cover the subject somehow and how better than talking about what happens in my head.
