Every year in spring, I begin a detox cure to erase the fatigue of winter and give a little boost to my body. At this particular time of year, our bodies are tired and tend to clog up with all kinds of toxins. These toxins are waste that our body produces either during digestion or in response to its environment: pollution, pesticides, tobacco. Toxins can cause a whole range of possible issues including: fatigue, disturbed sleep, depression, difficult digestion, dull complexion, weakened nails and more. These signs are indicators that our body needs to be “cleansed” to regain vitality. Of course, the body eliminates this waste itself over time but sometimes it has a hard time coping effectively when the accumulation of toxins is too great. A great way to assist your body’s natural cleansing is to take Chlorella to eliminate accumulated toxins, purify your body and restart on a good basis. View Post

I have to admit to doing something a little extreme recently. I am not going to recommend it to anyone as I can’t confirm any scientific grounding to it and have heard both good and bad opinions surrounding it. All I will say is I thought that I really wanted to try it and was pretty certain it wouldn’t do me any real harm but hopefully might actually do me some good. So I took a long time weighing up the options and I did a LOT of research and investigation before undertaking this which I would advise anyone else interested in the idea to do the same. After this caveat I will stop being so cryptic and get down to business. So what was it that I did…….a three day mono diet where I only ate apples!View Post
We had planned to stop off at a beautiful national reserve park on the Californian coast near Carmel called Point Lobos. As we are both huge lovers of nature and animals we were told this would be a fantastic place to visit on his road trip down the west coast, and we were not disappointed. However as soon as we arrived in the park we were warned instantly by both visitors and workers to keep our eyes peeled for Poison Oak/Poison Ivy. However as we are European we had absolutely no idea what the plant looks like and so tried our best to identify it from the very little information we possessed, basically just the name! We then walked down the coast a bit, passed some painters having a lovely day painting the coves and spots crabs, sealife and birds, before finding what we were really looking for……the seals!

I hadn’t had a holiday in over a year and I was really starting to feel it, I know, first world problems right? I won’t go into detail but it had been a really hard year for me so I was screaming out for a break. As I side note I feel I have to mention after the shell shock I experienced going from of 9 weeks holiday in France (yes that’s right, I said 9 weeks…….a year…….not a decade) down to 4 weeks working in London I really noticed the difference. I had to use most of my holiday allowance on travelling back to Paris for family and blog related things so I really wanted to use the remaining days to do something spectacular. So I started checking all across the world and what did I find……Zika, Terrorism, Typhoons, Rain, Storms……basically every place on the planet that had any sort of sun also had some worrying reason why we shouldn’t go there. So after an extensive worldwide search my boyfriend and I discussed the idea of a road trip across California that we had both long wanted to do but had always deemed too expensive. However he had some work commitments coming up over there and also loads of people he had put off meeting for years about his work so we decided now was the time and to do it on as small a budget as possible. We then started looking at the West coast and trying to focus in on where we should go and how this road trip would work logistically. It seemed there were two main possibilities, one of which focussed on the areas out from LA to Las Vegas with Death Valley and the Grand Canyon en route and the other was to start in Northern california and work our way down to LA trying to take in Yosemite and the Sequoia trees if possible. So we checked a million hotels, a thousand maps, hundreds of car rental options and every flight over the next weeks and finally, after a huge amount of wrangling, booked our tickets to San Francisco!View Post
