REVIEW: Tea doctor 14 day detox

| On
Wednesday, November 11, 2015  is the latest brand of detox tea. They offer three different packages.  The 14 day detox, the 28 day detox and detox with a bestie. Thanks to the lovely people at TeaDoctor, I was given the opportunity to test out the 14 day detox so i could share with you all the results.

Since the craze of 'teatoxing' first arose, i have been intrigued to try it for myself and see if it really does what it claims. I started this detox intended to improve my digestion and to generally feel healthier rather then to lose weight. However, I would not mind losing the odd pound.

On the site, TeaDoctor claim that the 14 detox will detoxify your body whilst losing unwanted pounds. It also stated that you could lose up to half a stone.

Week one

so I poured my first cup of the morning tea and drank it first thing in the morning. I actually really enjoyed the taste of it, if you like green/herbal teas then you should also enjoy it. It reminds me on a licorice/fennel tea. 

I also had the night time tea that evening which you should drink every other day. this one was very much like a 'sleepy time' tea, (if ever you've had one you'll know what i mean).

After a day or two of being on the detox, I did notice that my stomach felt a little unsettled. I was also eating more fresh foods and less carbs. I also massively cut down on eating animal products. I figured i was feeling a little sick from the difference in my diet, as well as my body reacting to the tea.

By the end of week one i was feeling much better and possibly even had more energy. I was getting used to not eating any junk food and even began going for walks and running.

Week two

By this time, i was used to my new routine and began to look forward to my tea every morning. I also think that the night time teas were helping my get to sleep. 

I was noticing that my stomach felt much flatter and i was definitely less bloated (if at all)  which was something that i struggled with prior to the detox.

At the end of the detox i have to say, I'm so happy that i stuck it out to the end. I wouldn't say that i lost half a stone, but definitely a few pounds which is what i was hoping for. If i stuck to exercising regularly then i would expect to of lost more. 

I did however notice my body working much more efficiently. I also felt much more energized and generally healthier within myself. My family and friends also noticed the difference in my attitude generally which is always good.

I would absolutely recommend anyone to have a go at this detox. Even if like me you just wanted to see if its worth all the hype.

For anyone who is interested, i have a 10% discount code for you all. Just type in the code "TEDOCTOR" when your at the checkout.

I'd love to know if any of you have experienced a teatox and what your thoughts are on it.

Monday, October 05, 2015

Thanks to the lovely people at prestige flowers, I was given the opportunity to preview a christmas bouquet from
their Haute florist range which is a recently launched range of high
quality stems arranged in house by thier highly trained florists.    

Flowers is one of UK's leading online florists, currently voted no. 1 on
Review centre and editor's choice for Best Online Florist on
Review florist. They sell a wide range of fresh flowers, plants and hampers
throughout the UK.

When the flowers first arrived, they were in a really pretty box. Inside was the bouquet wrapped in a stunning rose printed wrapping. The flowers were in perfect condition, fresh and highly scented. I love the details added to it which give it a distinctive festive touch. My favorite is the sticks of cinnamon. 

I have never ordered flowers online before so as far as the delivery side i cannot compare them to other online florist. However as a first experience I was happy with the service and would definitely order from them in the future.  

Please go check out there site and see what bouquets and other gifts they are currently selling and keep a look out for the christmas bouquets.

Fairy Cakes Fun

| On
Saturday, September 26, 2015

I love spending afternoons baking for friends and family. One of my favorite things to make is fairy cakes! today i chose a pink, girly themed recipe with vanilla sponge and a strawberry buttercream icing. I really enjoy decorating them. I get super exciting while they cool down and cant wait to get icing! But, of course, the best part about spending hours baking is getting to enjoy them once thier finished.
