    Keep Smiling and Win with Blanx Power White

    Imagine if every time you smiled, your teeth got a little whiter? Well Blanx just took us to the year 2026 and made that possible. Blanx’s new White Shock toothpaste is activated by sunlight or artificial light – so the more you smile, the better it works! You’d expect that for a claim like that to work, the toothpaste would be packed with peroxide, but Blanx doesn’t contain harmful bleaching agents… 🙄 “BlanX White Shock Toothpaste is ideal for those who don’t want to use harsh bleaching chemicals or undergo expensive treatments. It is safe to use daily and easy on the gums – making smiling the best choice for whiter teeth, through…

    Buy a Lindt Teddy Bear to donate a school bag

    I received a drop of these cute little Lindt Teddy Bears a few weeks back and I wanted to share the campaign with you too. When you are Christmas shopping and looking for stocking stuffers, just grab a Lindt Teddy Bear. If you purchase two LINDT TEDDY BEARS and enter the unique codes on Lindt.com, LINDT will donate 1 school bag to a child from the SOS Children’s Villages South Africa.

    {Gluten Free} Chocolate Birthday Cake and 30 things I now know!

    Ok as of this moment – I am officially 30 years old, so I made a Chocolate Birthday Cake to celebrate. Before I get to the chocolate cake though, I have to take a moment to acknowledge that this is happening.   I am 30. That feels so incredibly strange to type out. “Hello, my name is Cat and I’m 30 years old.”   I think it isn’t really the number that scares me, more so the fact that I feel as though I celebrated my 21st just a few years ago. It was Arabian Night themed and the Disney lover inside of me made sure that everybody dressed up.     This…

    What do IFBB Bikini Competitors eat?

      Ever wondered what IFBB (International Federation of Bodybuilders) eat? Or how they get ready for competitions? I chatted to Logan Leigh Rix, who you might have spotted on the cover of this months Fitness Magazine…   How did you get into this industry?  I got asked this question the other day and that’s when I realised that there was never a conscious decision, it just sort of happened. I really enjoyed gyming and living a healthy lifestyle, and because of that I decided to compete. It is still a shock to me that people have taken an interest in me and I feel extremely lucky and grateful to have…

    {Gluten Free} Baking with Ruby Chocolate

    Ever heard of Ruby Chocolate? After dark, milk and white, ruby is the most uncommon chocolate discovery in 80 years. That’s right – there hasn’t been a chocolate discovery this ground breaking for over 80 years! Towards the end of 2017, Swiss chocolate maker Barry Callebaut announced the discovery, as well as the fact that his company would be producing this fourth type of chocolate. Joining dark, milk and white, ruby has now entered the chocolate family, meeting many chocolate lovers excitement and of course, sceptics criticisms – (many believe white chocolate isn’t even chocolate and they classify ruby’s strange taste in the same league as white). For Chocolate Lovers, we…

    Help Change Lives, One Pack of Toilet Paper at a Time

That’s a very disturbing statistic. 😥 Making a change Baby-Soft 2-Ply, in partnership with WaterAid – have made it easier for us all to reduce this stat and they plan to construct toilets and handwashing facilities through the Toilets Change Lives programme. These toilets will be built at several schools in Limpopo where, according to Minister of Basic Education Angie Motshekga, 932 schools have…

    Ever heard of Probiotics for your Skin?

    Have you ever heard of probiotics for your skin? If you have been following along this week, you know I am doing a guided 7 day Gut Reset with Nine Aesthetics and Nourished WellBeing. Tomorrow is my last day of the cleanse, but I was already seeing the effects on my body by day 3, including less bloating and constipation. Then on day 4, the bad bacteria in my gut decided they were not going out without a fight and my skin started to become sensitized and inflamed from all the toxins being released. You see, when your body is detoxing from anything, you’ll likely go through withdrawal symptoms. This…
