Froo-t Smoothies

I am such a smoothie lover, I am obsessed with drinking smoothies to kick start my day. And when smoothies are healthy ones it makes me feel 10x better, it definitely kicks my energy in for the day! I’ve always been aware that some smoothies contain a lot of sugar and this can put a lot of people off. Another thing I love, is green tea it’s so healthy for you, it’s a great boost of energy in the morning.

Can you imagine smoothies which are healthy, have reduced sugar content and contain green tea?! Well let me introduce you to Froo-t smoothies!! That’s not even the best part as there’s even more benefits to their smoothies.

The people at BE DRINKS kindly sent me a box of Froo-t smoothies, which had 7 smoothies in, I was in Froo-t heaven! I got sent two different flavours which were; Strawberry & Banana Smoothie with Green Tea and Mango & Orange Smoothie with White Tea.

Strawberry & Banana Smoothie with Green Tea

This smoothie is definitely my favourite out of the two purely because I’m such a lover for berry based smoothies. It tastes so good, you can taste all the fruity flavours and what makes it better is this drink isn’t as thick as a smoothie but still tastes as good. This drink is so light on my stomach and definitely fills me with energy in the morning allowing me to start my day. This smoothies contains only 93 calories!

The Strawberry & Banana Smoothie with Green Tea, ingredients are;

  • Strawberry Puree
  • Banana Puree
  • Orange Juice
  • Black Carrot Juice
  • White Grape Juice
  • Lemon Juice
  • Green Tea Extract

Mango & Orange Smoothie with White Tea

I’ve never been a huge fan of tropical drinks as the mango taste isn’t my favourite- however I was completely taken back by the taste of this smoothie. I absolutely loved it. It’s so refreshing and delicious, even better this smoothie only contain 90 calories!

Both of these smoothies are one of your 5 a day which is so good. If you are one of those people that struggle to eat fruit daily, having one of these smoothies a day will completely fill you with your vitamins you need to start your day. All the smoothies have no added extra sugar, all the sugar in the drinks are the natural sugars found in fruit.

These smoothies are so perfect for my everyday lifestyle, having one of these gets me fully energised to start the day. Go order one for yourself and you will 100% feel healthier.

Feeling Good With Teagime

Me being me, I am definitely more of a coffee lover then tea, However not going to lie I am very obsessed when it comes to green tea or fruity tea blends, weird right?! How can I hate tea but love fruit tea, anyone else with me?!

I have ALWAYS been so invested in supplement teas or detox teas, just the thought of loosing weight from drinking tea got me very intrigued to find out more. In result of this, I realised majority of drinks that help you loose weight contain laxatives, which is definitely what put me off a lot of different detox teas. I tired this before, but in reality when you stop doing it all that happens is all the weight ploughs back on even faster. It kind of made me think, what do they actually put in the tea to help you loose weight, is it really that healthy for your body? clearly not.

I got approached by Teagime asking to send me a box of their tea to review, before I even considered taking this opportunity I did a bit of research myself on the brand. Only to realise their tea has absolutely NO LAXATIVES whatsoever. Obviously a bonus for me. After researching even more, I found out you choose what’s in your tea and customize it yourself, I was actually so impressed with the whole package of this brand, customizing your own tea, that helps you loose weight, perfect!

Customizing your own tea

To start this process you simply go on to Teagime website and sign up. You will be asked to fill in small questionnaire which is just for the brand to get to understand what you want the tea to do.

So for choosing what I wanted the tea to do for me personally it was pretty straight forward, I chose; Shed Those Pounds, Radiant Skin, Increased Energy, Anti Aging, Stronger Hair, Skin and Nails. But really, can you imagine a drink being able to do all this for you?!


Choose your flavours of tea, personally I am not very keen on minty / herby teas as in my opinion I don’t like the taste. So of course I chose, Fruity and Flowery. From just that information they will send you tea blend completely on your results, alongside your Morning, Afternoon and Evening teas, you will receive a note telling you what is in each blend and what they do.

Insight Into My Teagime Blend

So I don’t mind sharing what’s in my tea and what it does with you all, so here’s the insight into my daily intake on Teagime.

Morning Blend – ‘Calm Your Mind’

My morning Teagime blend is made from Sage, Blueberry and Lemongrass. For my morning blend the ingredients together help; Increasing Metabolism, Eliminates Toxins and Boosts Energy.


Afternoon Blend – ‘Tummy-Friendly Tea’

My afternoon Teagime blend is made from Liquorice, Juniper Berry and Pouchong Tea. For my afternoon blend the ingredients together help; Carbs Cravings, burns fat and improves circulation.


Evening Blend – ‘The Light Fantastic’

My evening Teagime blend is made from Elderflower, Chamomile and Fennel. For my evening blend the ingredients together help; Aids Digestion, Clears Skin and Reduces Stress.

My Teagime Results

I have been using this product for a few weeks so I can test it to give you an honest review. Since using this product I can 100% tell you my skin has been so much more clearer and less greasy. I have lost weight from using this purely because I am fuller quick and not very hungry, it really helped with bloating as well. I hardly ever bloated.

This is literally perfect for everyone and anyone purely because each tea blends is individual to you and your needs.  Teagime is so effective but so enjoyable at the same time.

Another bonus, you don’t need any eating plan at all, you can completely eat to your normal daily intake – it just really helps me to stop snacking throughout the day.

The box is so cute it comes with all your teas and information needed, with the cutest Teagime teabags I have ever seen!!

Getting Summer Ready With I-Motion Gym Stafford

Today is the official start of Summer 2017 in the UK and like many others I’ve started my mission of regular gym sessions aiming to get the summer body I wish for. I have recently been looking for a gym in my local town of Stafford and following tours of several gyms I’ve plumped for I-Motion Gym in Stafford Town Centre (within The Guildhall Shopping Centre).

I was looking for an affordable gym that has all the facilities and services you need to create that perfect summer body. I was blown away by the selection i-Motion offer and also the premium and friendly feel the gym has. The gym contains 4 zones – cardio, free weights, resistance and functional whilst also having 3 group exercise studios. They have over 400 FREE classes per month, including Les Mills and all with fully qualified instructors. I received a free starter pack when I joined which included a bag, fitness towel and water bottle, I was also given a free personal training session which I will be taking up shortly!

I-Motion is a staffed gym unlike some you can find and the staff here are a mix of ages and have all been so friendly and helpful. I could literally spend the full day in this gym and I should also mention it has it own health food cafe (Macro Cafe), barbers/hairdressers and physiotherapist. Another perk of the membership is 2 hours free parking within the Guildhall Shopping Centre Car Park, this means free Town Centre parking!

When I told the gym I was considering writing a blog regarding my fitness goals for this summer, they offered me a promo code ‘OCEAN’ which would offer readers the opportunity to get a reduced rate – the gym is already super affordable, but this code will mean you pay only £5 for your first month and then only £16.99 per month on a non-contract basis.
I really can’t recommend this place enough and wanted to let others know – you really need to check it out! I’ll be posting updates of my fitness journey from time to time – good luck getting your perfect beach ready body for Summer 2017.
