“Get up & dance, get up & smile, get up & drink to the days that are gone in the shortest while” ~ Simon Fowler

I am a beverage lover! Flavoured waters, juices, cocktails, coffee & wine make my day.
I started flavouring my water because I know that I don’t drink enough of it & it’s important for health. Lucky for me my dad got me a funky water diffuser to take to work & the pilates studio.

I’ve been loving Bacardi’s pineapple coconut rum! It’s been popping up in most of my cocktails & has me excited for the beginnings of summer. I used it here:

Or my other favourite is tequila from Mexico that I’m slowly savouring with individual cocktails from time to time.

Homemade Hair Care

Healthy eating has inspired me to make healthier choices when it comes to my cosmetics. It helps that I have IG friends who believe in natural products & inspire me to make my own.
So this weekend I made a hot oil treatment for my hair.
