Eat yourself…whatever you want to be

 

It has literally never been easier to eat yourself fit and healthy, happy, energetic, positive, cerebral etc…  A Mediterranean diet as we are always told is the secret to not only healthy lives but slimmer ones too.  To embark on this program you literally need olive oil, fresh fish (frozen is fine as it harvests the pure vitamins and minerals from source) a few tomatoes, basil leaves and fresh oregano (to taste).  Occasionally use chicken for variety, but stick to the basics, and any fresh green (preferably organic but don’t compromise taste) salad or greens and just go for it, channel your inner Nigella or Jamie Oliver and do what comes (almost) naturally!  Season with  flaked rock salt only a bit, mind.  Drink your bodyweight in water and sit back and reap the benefits…

The summer trend

 

Summer is all about mixing it up, whether it be breaking out the whites from head to toe for a fresh crisp look and teaming it with bold patterned print shoes or accessories, heavily jewelled over jeans and simple maxis, colour blocking, neons etc there is a huge choice out there.  Make up trends seem to be along the bolder lines too with some faces sporting daring red eyeshadow (be sure to team with nude lips and cheeks), or the new navy and nautical blues also another dramatic scene.
