What are you all about currently?

Loving, not loving as much, eating, listening to, wearing, wanting, watching, reading, obsessed with, inspired by, current mood and favorite thing this week.

I’m currently answering these Q’s. Answer these same questions about yourself in the comments below.


That it’s almost Christmas – the Christmas season is my favorite time of year! I’ve been making (and will be making) healthy Christmas cookies all month long!


Not loving as much?

That I’m working on overload, to get ready to take time off over Christmas – but it will be so worth it when I’m on holiday!


Christmas themed recipes the entire month of December – can you blame me? This roasted red pepper, sweet potato & mushroom soup has been one of my faves this month. It’s so easy to make a big batch, and keep it in the fridge for easy meals. It’s simple, healthy and still feels appropriate for the festive season.


Listening to?

Ariana Grande (Christmas & Chill EP) + Britney Spears (My Only Wish) + My fave Christmas songs!

If I’m going to be completely honest, I’ve been secretly listening to Christmas music since July – I’ve been extra excited about Christmas this year, because my sister is coming home for Christmas this year (she currently lives in Hong Kong).

Check out this months workout playlist to see what I’ve been all about music wise (my fave Christmas songs).



Summer dresses – it’s summer in South Africa.


Healthy Christmas cookies – the ones dipped in chocolate and decorated with coconut.



Christmas movies every night! I’m more than slightly obsessed. Some of my all time fave Christmas movies are “All I Want For Christmas”, “Love Actually” and “Just Friends”. I’ve also been really into Hallmark Christmas movies this year, I think I’ve watched every Christmas movie featuring Lacey Chabert – I love her, and her Christmas movies are the best!

I’ve also been watching Zoella’s “24 Days Of Zoella” videos (her spin on 24 Day’s of Christmas).



Magazines – I actually haven’t read magazines in such a long time. This month I’ve been buying myself some magazines again, which I’ve been browsing through in spare moments (there haven’t been many). Sometimes it’s nice to read and look through something that is not online.

Obsessed with?

Anything Christmassy! Watching the lights twinkle on the Christmas tree, making a Christmas themed video for my YouTube channel, baking Christmas cookies, eating Christmassy food, listening to Christmas music, watching Christmas movies, the list goes on…

In particular, I’m obsessed with watching Christmas movies while snacking on my Christmas nut cluster cookies.


Inspired by?

Ariana Grande and Zoella – they’re both the current Queens of Christmas (in my opinion).


Current Mood?

Feeling festive, Lol!

Favourite thing this week?

Filming and uploading my healthy Christmas cookies video to my YouTube channel – I had so much fun filming this!
