Gluten Free Chocolate Banana Bread

Raise your hand if you struggle with ideas for breakfast or a mid- morning snack? ME!!!!!
I brought Lucy Watson's ' Feed me Vegan' book, so this recipe is inspired by her!. This is a great recipe for on the go, you know if you don't have time to make anything from scratch. This bread loaf will last a few days in the fridge so don't feel like you need to throw it away or eat it all at once, and then I decided to slice it all up and freeze it.

Isn't it suppose to be Spring?

I can't believe how much snow we have had this year and at the end of last year, I just want the warm weather now, all the pretty flowers, little lambs!. I love the fact there is extra hours of daylight which increases the length of your days. It means I can actually get up early and go running in the morning or go for long walks in the evening. I do love wearing a gorgeous winter coat like the pink one I am wearing but I just can't wait to be in spring/summer attire. Spring is a new beginning, it gives you a chance to start fresh you can't blame not exercising on the weather because the days start to get more dry and warmer ( I hope.)

What I've learnt about love and friendships

You will definitely have different friends for all sorts of reasons, friends that fit certain categories. I don’t just have one group of friends but friends I’ve met through all different sorts of things. Like my blogging friends, online friends, Arbonne friends , college friends. Within your friendships you will realise that some friends are great for making you laugh , some give amazing advice and then some friends who are definitely the one’s you go shopping with.

Bag Essentials

So I have a few essentials that I must have in my every day to day bag. Obviously it does depend on where I am going, the weather and how big my bag is, but this would be for a medium sized bag just like the Kate Spade one above. 

I hate clutter so after every day I will clear out my bag , put everything away and put it back in my wardrobe- an organised bag is definitely a must. I think it''s pretty obvious how much I love Kate Spade but I just find their bags very spacious and great for everyday use.

Staying true to yourself

Being true to yourself is definitely a long- life practice which requires commitment. You will know deep down if you are true to yourself and you don't put on a act. It will be the feeling you get after you realise your beginning  to understand who you are and the actions you make. To be able to understand yourself fully you will need to be able to trust yourself and understand the awareness your body has in day to day life. It's obviously different for each of you out there because we are all unique, we all act in different ways and make decisions.

There are so many beautiful, talented souls in the world. Don't let anything stand in the way of your potential. In life there are so many people that tell you that you can't do something. You can't let them bring you down. True friends will believe in you and lift you up. Don't allow anyone to tell you that you can't live your dream. Realise who you can trust, cherish those special friendships, you know the ones who are really there for you. Like I've said before I would much rather have a small circle of friends that really care about me than loads who never even arrange to see me. I don't need fake friends, I don't have time for people to waste my time. I see so many people just associating themselves with individuals just because they have a good reputation and all of that, but that isn't being true to you is it? Know who your friends are, their going to be the ones that stick by your side through everything.

How to build your self confidence

Confidence? Everyone has a different opinion on it, and everyone copes in different ways. " I found I was more confident when I stopped trying to be someone else's definition of beautiful and started being my own"- Remington Miller 

Whoever said beauty meant having a pretty face, was wrong. Because it's not, it's about having a pretty mind, a pretty heart and a beautiful soul. The most important thing about self confidence is not caring what others think, learn to love the body you are in. To be able to pursue your goals and dreams you need to be able to overcome your fears and have confidence. I can't tell you enough how important it is to work on your self- confidence and self- esteem. I completely understand everyone has off days and sometimes you will feel a bit rubbish, we are only human at the end of the day. You need to take control of your self- confidence. Below I am going to tell you a few things that will hopefully help you feel more confident within yourself and just feel better about yourself.

Learning to love yourself

Loving yourself....

"You don't find your worth in a man. You find your worth within yourself and then find a man who's worthy of you. Remember that" I just really like this saying; as woman we need to be able to love ourselves before anyone can love us- not just men. More people need to realise that they don't need anyone to make them happy- it's all about being happy and falling in love with yourself. Self love is so important,  you owe yourself the love that you so freely give to others. Be your own best friend, allow yourself to have a treat once in a while, buy the shoes, get pampered and stop worrying about what others think.

Empowering Women

You have got to own it.

 Own that walk. Own it girl. Say to yourself... You can find me somewhere in between inspiring others, working on myself, dodging negativity and slaying goals.

There is one thing that really annoys me and that is seeing other woman putting each other down. We live in a world where we should be empowering each other and raising each other onto platforms. There is enough sadness and negativity that goes on in life that we can't help, so why make it worse by creating more. "We rise by lifting others." If I just compliment one person a day on how they look , something their wearing or their positive attitude it makes me feel better already because it's knowing you are making someone else feel good. So next time you see someone in the street and you like their outfit tell them! Or even a friend or family member- tell them, make them feel good! Empowered women empower women. You never look good trying to make someone else look bad.  It is so important that we as women come together and support each other, stop being bitchy , stop with the nasty comments and work together. Be the kind of women that makes other women want to up their game.
