The Vitamin C Booster Smoothie

This has been one of my favourite smoothies to make this summer, it's packed with Vitamin C to boost the immune system and even has anti ageing benefits for the skin. And who doesn't love a good smoothie in the summer?!

This recipe includes a smoothie pack from Love Smoothies which is great if you want a pre made smoothie pack to wack in the blender or you simply want to avoid buying heaps of ingredients.
You will need a blender, I used the Nutri Ninja but any blender will do!

Makes 2 Servings
-1 cup of strawberries
-1 cup of pineapple

-1/4 cup of broccoli*
-1/4 cup of spinach*
-1/4 cup of mango*
-1/4 cup of pineapple*
*Or 1 pack of the 'Broccoli and the Beast aka The Hulk' smoothie mixture from love smoothies

-1/2 cup of milk (you can replace this with almond, coconut, rice or oat milk for a diary free alternative)

 Admittedly, this is not a Pinterest worthy 'Green Juice' due to it's unappetising brown colour but it really does taste amazing!

Five YouTubers You Should Be Watching

I've been watching YouTube for quite a few years now. From what the best BB Cream is to how to do the perfect squat, it's all on there. So, here are a my top five YouTubers to watch, who will tell you everything you need to know about beauty, fashion and lifestyle.

She covers everything from vlogs to hauls but my favourite thing to watch Zoella for is her homeware hauls. I can only imagine her home looking like a Pinterest news feed with her chic candle collection and copper decor.

Hannah Maggs
A mum and beauty blogger that does weekly vlogs with her husband and their baby Grayson. If you like family vlogs Hannah Maggs is one to watch.

Niomi Smart
Her channel is one to go to if your searching for healthy, vegan treats. Niomi does videos on everything healthy, with food, fitness and even throws some fashion and beauty in the mix.

ViviannaDoesMakeup is the reason I started my blog. Her classic, chic fashion style and effortless natural beauty looks will make you want to watch more and more. I definitely recommend watching her 'makeup menus' for great beauty products, but I have to warn you, your bank will suffer from many purchases at SpaceNK after clicking on her videos.

Tone It Up
This channel is my favourite fitness channel. They target all body parts and makes working out not a chore. As summer is quickly approaching, I would go check out their 'Bikini Series' for some great workouts they do on the beach.
