It's just damn good! :D But it's also…

Healthy Food: Ask and you shall receive

I've had crazy weeks in my life... 4am starts, 12am wraps, you know - all those glam 'life of a model' moments. Nothing I hate more than eating stuff that makes me feel lethargic, heavy and clogged.

Vanilla-Chiaseed Mylkshake

As a girl one of my favorite things was a cold vanilla milkshake. Usually made with lots of sugar, dairy milk, ice-cream. Definitely not a healthy way to get re-energized, in my opinion.
