Where Do I Go From Here...



Not gonna lie, I've hit a blogging wall. Im not liking all of my content. I'm getting bored. I want to take my blog in a new direction but I'm just not sure what that direction will be.

I don't have a niche. I don't want to be categorised into one style of blog! I like beauty, I like cooking, I like travel, I'm on a weightless journey, I'm about to start some renovations on my house and declutter/restyle some rooms and I want to document it all!

I want to talk about meal planning and show you all my favourite healthy clean eating cookbooks!
I'd like to do "what I eat in a day" videos/posts.

The ideas are there, I just need to organise myself and figure out how to make a routine of it all, along with everything else that needs doing around the house!

I want to up my photography game!
I love browsing blogs with gorgeous photos to go along with their ramblings and I'd like to try my hand at vlogging (although I'm not sure how I would handle talking to a camera in public lol)

As you can see if you've popped by before, my blog has had a bit of a makeover. I was hoping a change of scenery would inspire me to sit with my laptop a bit more and get creating!

Here's hoping!

I'd just like my blog posts to help the people reading them. I want the reader to be able to take something from it. Otherwise they just turn into a bragging session.

I hope me posting this and being able to re read it, inspires me to work a bit harder towards getting this little space of mine to where I can envision it.

So for now, I'll sit and think of the things I want to create and work towards making them a reality!

Watch this space!

Product Review || Healthy Food Subscription Boxes


I'm back with a foodie post!!

I'm here to tell you about 2 different healthy food subscription boxes!
Now I'm a massive beauty lover, but I love trying out new food more, BUT! at the same time, watch what is going into my belly and making sure its good for me.
That is why I have chosen food subscription boxes that contain HEALTHY products.

The two I purchased to try out are Goodness Me Box and The Sugarfree Box.

Lets start with the Goodness Me Box.

Full of yummy clean eats each month, this healthy box of treats is $25 per month with free shipping. You can also choose to purchase a quarterly, bi-annual or annual subscription which in turn, drops the price of the monthly box.

With all items, they must fall into at least two of the following categories to be included: organic, sustainable, raw, gluten free, dairy free, sugar free or vegan.

With 6-10 picks in each box each month, this one is definitely value for money (June box actually contained 11 items!)
Adding the RRP of all full sized items (only 2 were small samples) it was around $40 in value, so straight off the bat, you are almost getting double your money back in SNACKS! Who could be upset about that??



Inside were the following goodies.

1.   Hart & Soul: Coconut Lentil Soup. $3.99
2.   Dr Karg's: Organic Crispbread. (Classic 3-Seed) (200g pack) $6.95
3.   Flavr: All Natural Water Enhancer. (Vanilla Lime) $5.95
4.   Well Naturally: No Sugar Added Dark Chocolate. $2.80
5.   Qi Tea: Organic Relax Tea. (Orange Chai) $4.99
6.   Live Organic: Extra Gentle Shea Butter Natural Soap. (90g) $5.99
7.   Celebrate Health: Organic Coconut Water. $3.00
8.   The Health Food Guys: Raw Protein Bites. (Coffee & Wattleseed) $4.50
9.   Leda Nutrition: Banana Leda Bar. $1.90
10. Pure By Phytocare: Papaya Ointment. $8.95
11. Blue Dinosaur: Paleo Bars. (Mac' Lemon) $3.95

Sooooo, as you can see... REALLY great value for money! Lots of little goodies to snack on and try! I haven't tried any of these bits before, except the sugar free chocolate (which was mint flavoured and I wasn't the biggest fan of it)

For a first impressions box, I'm loving it! So many cool bits inside and nothing that I wouldn't try out! I will definitely be keeping this box for a while longer!


Next up is the Sugar Free Box.


Sugar free box is pretty self explanatory. It's full of healthy goodies that are close to or 100% sugar free!
All products need to contain less than 5g of sugar per 100g and be free of hidden sugars and artificial sweeteners.
You can also get a vegan version of the box.

Same deal as above, you can do a month to month sub or you can go quarterly, bi-anual or annual.
Although there is the exception of getting the jumbo box for $39 per month (free shipping) OR you can go for the mini box at $25 per month. Stated as "all of the faves of the jumbo box, packed in a little box"
I went for the jumbo box and inside I received the following:

1. Mingle Seasoning. 120g $12.95
2. Nutrition Warrior: Super Protein Blend. 50g $7.95
3. The Haus of Health: Bean Bonanza Food Toppers. 100g $5.50
4. Matka Organic Blend Tea. 75g $22.95
5. Crazy as a Coconut: Coconut Oil. $1.50 per sachet.
6. Caveman Food: Lamb Coconut Curry. 400g $12.50

RRP of this box adds up to $66.35, so again, great value for money!

If I were to choose between the two, I'd have to say I was far more impressed with the Goodness Me Box. I think it's because it's full of more snacks than anything else.
Although I thought last months Sugarfree Box was better than this months.

I think July will be the decider if I keep the Sugarfree Box or just stay with the one.
Goodness Me Box's July box is going sugar free! SO! it will be the ultimate battle!

Have you tried any kind of food subscription services before?

Do you have any you'd like me to review?

Leave me a comment below!

*Disclaimer:

These subscription boxes were paid for using my own money and are not a paid advertisement for either company. I genuinely like to read reviews on things before I purchase and get a little more info or insight into the product.
