How To Be More Positive

Hi everybody,

I'm so sorry for my absence the last few of weeks. My University law exams are approaching, so I'm in complete study mode and have put my blog on a back burner for the time being. I've been checking  in every day anyway - and have been planning some great blog posts for the near future :)

However, I saw this photo today and thought that I'd share with you some of my favourite ways to think positive (especially during times when thinking positive may be difficult) and share those positive vibes with people around me.

Start off the day on a good note: I often start off my mornings by simply texting my best friends, my family or my boyfriend with a simple 'good morning' message. Despite being such a small effort on your part, it will boost the mood of the other person instantly, making them start their day off on a positive note :)

Be polite: The usual; "please", "thank you" kind of manners will make people feel respected. That's always a great thing to feel :)

Smile: Something so small can make such a huge difference. When I see someone with a huge grin on their face, I automatically feel urged to smile back and this makes me feel so much more positive in a split second :)

Let your loved ones know you love them: Tell them in person, send them a text or give them a call - Just let them know how much they mean to you. It's always great speaking to a loved one, and knowing how much you care about each other :)

These are just a few of my thoughts on how best to spread the positivity.
What do you do to radiate the positive vibes to those around you?

Mixed Berry & Banana Smoothie Recipe

Hi everybody,

On an attempt to start eating more healthy today (yes, the day after Easter after noticing I ate WAY too much chocolate), I started off my day with this delicious mixed berry and banana smoothie!

After searching a few different recipes, I've managed to come up with the perfect smoothie that will leave you feeling super refreshed!

1 cup frozen mixed berries
1 freshly squeezed orange
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup greek yoghurt
1 teaspoon honey

All you need to do is mix these ingredients together in a blender and viola - a perfect, thick smoothie ready to drink!

I hope you love this as much as I did.

Let me know your perfect smoothie recipes in the comments :)
