Wanderlust Book for Yogis

Welcome back! Today I wanted to share with you a book that I am loving at the moment.
I haven't yet shared on here I don't think but I am currently on my way to becoming a certified yoga teacher! I began my training in November last year and am aiming to be finished and teaching by the end of this year #goals.
This book was one I picked up prior to confirming that I wanted to embark on Yoga Teacher Training and it is a great insight into a lot more things Yoga related which is why I wanted to share it with you in case maybe your considering it or you just want to deepen your practise. 

Wanderlust: A Modern Yogi's Guide To Discovering Your Best Self is all about Yoga on and off the mat and a guide on living an authentic life. 

It has beautiful imagery, words, mottos, guides and more. There is information on the 8 limbs of Yoga and what that means, places to write in ideas and thoughts and dreams, music playlists, recipes, yoga flow guides and stories from Yogis.  

It's a great book to pick up and open at any page to get a nugget of information or to sit down and read chapter by chapter. 

The authors of this book are the founders of the Wanderlust Festivals that happen all over the world. Look HERE to see if there is one near you, I hope I get to go to one soon! 

If your keen on yoga and want to know more about what yoga means off the mat or thinking about starting a Yoga Teacher Training course I would highly recommend checking out this book.
I also have actually started a new website relating to all things Yoga! It's partly for my teacher training as a place to put all my assignments and also to type through my experiences so I don't forget the journey. You can check that out HERE if your interested! It's

Aussie Summer Lifesaver

Ahhhh Summer in Australia. I don't really think there is anything better. The days get longer, swimming in the ocean, tropical fruit, swimming in the pool, lying on a beach towel, reading a good book. There is just something about being by the seaside that is so relaxing.
One thing I love more than anything is that feeling you get when your lying in the sun where you can actually feel your bones warm up!
However on occasions I can get a little too carried away and manage to get myself more on the red side of a lobster. All Aussies know what I'm on about - that burn you get that stings to sit on, that keeps you awake at night because you feel like you on fire! 

This product however is by far my favourite for after being in the sun, sunburn or not. I've tried so many different aftersuns and I swear by this one. It cools my skin down and makes my burns turn brown which is just amazing to me. If anything I would go so far to say that it actually helps me to turn some redness into a tan, and I never peel if I use this.
Ambre Solaire After Sun. It smells incredible, I sometimes sniff it in winter to just get that flood of summer memories rushing in!
It has cactus extract which I think is the kicker for why its so good. 

The funniest thing about this product is that you cant actually purchase it in Australia anymore!!!
I don't know why but Garnier get your act together and bring it back!!!
I bulk buy mine (yes) on eBay and get it shipped form the UK of all places (do they even see the sun?!)
Here is a LINK to one - try it and let me know if you love it!

Healthy Sweet Snack!

Welcome back! Today is a quick one - I wanted to share with you one of my newest sweet healthy snacks that I discovered in Woolworths. 

It is by the brand Golden Days, it is their Nude Food heavenly balls in the flavour of: Hazelnut, orange and cacao. 
These taste amazing, they remind me of those orange chocolate sticks (anyone remember them?) They are really small bite size but i find that about 5 or 6 is actually enough to feel satisfied. 

The thing that makes these stand out for me is that they don't have any added sugar like most healthy snack options, but they also don't have any added syrups - which i've found that a lot of these 'healthy sweet snacks' actually are full of added syrup which whilst being natural is a good thing, having it be the first ingredient on the list isn't so healthy!
The ingredients list in these is just:
Sunflower oil
Chia Seeds
Puffed Rice
Natural Orange Oil
They taste like a chocolate treat and a handful is perfect with a cup of tea at night to stop me from eating out the fridge! 
They also come in a coconut, almond cacao and a mint, almond, cacao variety!
I found this in the health food isle in Woolworths, I couldnt find a website for them just this link on the Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) Website  
Let me know if you try them and what you think!
