Hey guys! Long time no see! Back at Uni, changed job and working on Peaches, life has been crazy lately! But I can’t complain… I love it!
Last week the guys from Bumble Zest were kind enough to send me some healthy shots to try (with the amount of work and lack of sleep I’ve been having lately, this is perfect right now).
So I received this beautifully wrapped box with two of their Calm & Comfort and Propel & Protect bottles. Both of them vegan of course! This drinks can be taken as shots or diluted in water, I personally rather to drink them with water as it tastes a bit like a sports drink I used to love when I was little called “Gatorade” but way more natural a healthier for you! 🙂
My favourite? I can’t decide (although I have a bit of a love thing with the Chamomile, Lavender and Spirulina shots :P) . I love the fact that the ingredients are not many and I actually know what each of them are. I’d definitely give this a go if you are looking for a health boost, trying to include more nutrients into your diet or if you simply love a sweet drink that is good for you!
Have a great week!
See you soon xx

Happy Monday!! I hope you’re enjoying the good weather (not today tho), I definately am!
Today I’m bringing you a new delicious, yet healthy recipe 🙂 As you may know, I’m always on the run and I often find myself getting an energy bar between breaks. Don’t get me wrong, there are loads of vegan natural bar brands that I adore but also some of this brands can be a little bit expensive and some of them are packed with oil, salt and preservatives… I thought, why not make my own energy bars? If you’ve been following me for a while, you probably know about my “energy balls recipe” and how much I love them, but this time, I wanted to try something different.
I came up with a super low fat Flapjack Energy Bar recipe and guys: I’m in love. I already ate like half of them since I made this recipe (about 3 days ago).
For this deliciousness you will need:
– 1 1/2 CUP of organic oats
1 TBSP goji berries
1 TBSP organic cocoa powder
200gr organic medjool dates (about 12 dates)
1 TBSP chia seeds (I get mine from GRAZE –> click here to buy)
3 TBSP soy milk or oat milk (I only had soy in the fridge so that’s what I used)
On a bowl add your TBSP of chia seeds and 3 TBSP of water, mix well and leave a side for about 5 min. The water will make the chia grow and for a thick gooey paste, we will use this as our “egg” to make sure everything sticks together. Did you know Chia Seeds are super rich in Omega? 🙂
Next, dip your medjool dates and goji berries in a cup with warm water and leave them for a bit so they hydrate and are easier to blend. After a few minutes, rinse your dates and goji berries and blend on a food processor with 3TBSP of soy milk, until you get a creamy thick paste like this one:
Now it’s time to make the magic mix! On a big bowl add your oats, cocoa powder, your chia egg and the creamy date/goji paste . Mix well until you achieve a “flapjack dough consistency”.
On a rectangular container (make sure you can put it in the freezer) you will put some parchment paper and add your mixture. Then you will spread it until it’s all compact and uniform. I recommend you leave about 1,5cm of thickeness. Freeze overnight.
The day after you will wake up to a bach of about 12 flapjacks. You just need to cut them into nice looking bars!
What I like to do is wrap them in individual packages so I can take them with me on the go or give them as a gift so someone 🙂 For the packages I used parchment paper and some hemp cord (which you can re-use afterwards if it doesn’t get messy).
I hope you give this recipe a try and please let me know in the comments below if you have any questions, or just to say if you liked it! See you soon in another post!
Heya!! Happy Monday! Today I finally had some quality time with Ben and we both decided to go and check out this new pop-up ice cream shop in Shoreditch: NANABAR. I found this place on Instagram about 2 weeks ago and I couldn’t be happier that finally someone decided to open a nice cream shop in London! Just on time for this super hot weather. If you are not vegan, you might haven’t heard about the term: “NICECREAM” well, it basically stands for ice cream but without the cruelty that dairy brings, that’s where the word “nice” comes from… and I guess it’s a way of calling a vegan ice cream differently, especially when it’s made of frozen bananas, like these guys you’ve just seen in the pictures. We actually had lunch there and I couldn’t even finish my serving! They have a flavour each day of the week and today we were lucky to try the “Strawberry Shortcake” one, with an extra shot of peanut butter 😛 (really recommend adding the PB) I could go on and on on the benefits and coolness of these kind of ice creams and this place, but I really think you should try it for yourself 🙂 (FUN FACT: this was the first nice cream I had in my life that I didn’t make myself!, crazy right?)
Ben and I can’t wait to be back! Oh! and hurry, because their pop up store will be open just for 3 months!
Hello! If you actually had a look at what time I’ve posted this you’re probably wondering why the hell am I still awake at 2.30am blogging junk food on a weekday? Well… *story time*
The truth is I’m still up because I literally can’t sleep thanks to a horrible neck pain. This morning I woke up at 7am as usual, had a TREK bar, got my workout clothes on and went down to the gym. Everything was going great until after about 20min of doing my daily workout routine, I was doing sit ups when: “snap” a horrible sharp pain went through my column to my neck and left me paralized on the matt. I literally thought I broke my neck, the pain was (and is) horrific! I managed to very carefully pick up my things and go back to my studio and call my parents as I was pretty much unable to move and my neck hurted so freaking much. After talking to my parents and following their advice, I realized how stress has been piling up lately and I’ve been so tense that that’s probably what caused this. So I’ve been here, in my bed, all day long…
I couldn’t go to Uni and I couldn’t do all of the things I had to do outside including my weekly food haul…
So I thought as I didn’t have any food in my cupboard and even lifting a hand makes me ache, I got a takeaway! If you know me you know how much I love my healthy meals and if you know me really really well you probably know that I’ve never ordered a takeaway by myself. Yep, Alien here, I know.
The truth is, I love to make my own meals and eating out or getting a takeaway is something I’d call a “treat” and I always do it with someone else. But today, there was no choice.
So I headed to Deliveroo and opted to order Gourmet Burguer Kitchen. I figured out it would be a super easy order as they actually have a 100% vegan burger in their menu and I didn’t even have to worry on asking for special things. So I got the “Dippy Hippy” burger which consists of a pan-fried bean patty, beetroot & mint hummus, avocado, piquillo pepper, salad, relish and sourdough bun and I also ordered Skin-On fries as a side. As I’ve had this burger before and I looooved it, I opted to take out the mint hummus as in my opinion it doesn’t go very well with the burger.
And I mean, what else can I say? you know the rest…
One thing came to the other and me and my burger made out. Sometimes you gotta treat yourself, right? 😉
If you’re vegan, vegetarian or a meat-eater I strongly encourage you to try this burger, it’s seriously amazing!

PD: Also, if you have any tips/natural remedies on how to get rid of this horrible muscular pain, let me know in the comments below! I’d really appreciate it! 🙂
Morning! Bonjour! Buenos Días! 🙂 It’s nearly the weekend and I’m so ready for a day off Uni and work. Ever since I moved to London my diet has been changing slightly from RawTill4 to HCLF. If you don’t know about either of these terms, look it up on Google or ask in the comments below 🙂
The truth is, by not having access to cheap local organic produce and being always rushing and on the go made me adapt myself to a more flexible diet. Back in the Sixth Form days about 2 years ago, I used to get my Graze box delivered each week with 4 yummy snacks to have with me on the go. Since I’ve been vegan I kind of thought they wouldn’t have many vegan options and didn’t think of ordering with them anymore. Until now! I found out you can now select your dietary requirements and choose which type of box you’d like. So Ben and I decided to give it a go and I went for the variety box and Ben for the chocolate box, both made vegan of course.
They just got delivered! And I enjoyed my first snack this afternoon with a cup of green tea. I think this is a great idea if you are always travelling and don’t always have time to stop by a supermarket or your house every time you get hungry. You can choose how many times you want your box delivered (we chose once a week) and your can cancel or snooze your subscription anytime 🙂
So if you would like to give it a go, I have something for you! You can get your 1st,5th and 10th boxes for FREE using the code: NURIAM63B
And if after your 1st box you don’t want to order more, you can cancel it with no problem 🙂 If you have any questions, please let me know in the comments down below!
Buenos días! Bonjour! Good Morning! 🙂 Ya casi es el fin de semana y estoy más que lista para tener un día sin trabajo y sin Uni. Desde que me mudé a Londres mi dieta ha pasado a ser de RawTill4 a HCLF. Si no conoces alguno de estos términos, míralo en Google o pregunta en los comentarios 🙂
La verdad es que, al no tener acceso a productos locales orgánicos a buen precio y estar siempre corriendo ha hecho que me adapte a una dieta más flexible. Atrás en los días de Sixth Form hace unos dos años, solían entregarme mi caja Graze cada semana con 4 ricos snacks que me acompañaban en mis trayectos. Desde que me hice vegana siempre pensé que no tendrían muchas opciones para mí y dejé de pedir las cajas. Hasta ahora! Me enteré de que puedes seleccionar tus requisitos dietéticos y puedes elegir que tipo de caja quieres. Así que Ben y yo decidimos probarlo. Yo pedí la caja de variedad y Ben la caja de chocolate, ambas hechas veganas por supuesto.
Y ya llegaron! Esta tarde disfruté mi primer snack con una taza de té verde. Creo que ésta es una idea genial si estás siempre viajando y no tienes tiempo de pasar por un supermercado o por tu casa cada vez que te entra el apetito. Puedes elegir cuantas veces quieres que te llegue una caja (nosotros elegimos una vez por semana) y puedes cancelar o “adormecer” tu subscripción en cualquier momento 🙂
Así que si quieres probarlo, tengo algo para tí! Puedes conseguir tu 1º, 5º y 10º cajas GRATIS usando el código: NURIAM63B
Y si después de tu primera caja no quieres recibir más, puedes cancelarla sin problema 🙂 Si tienes cualquier pregunta, házmelo saber en los comentarios de abajo!
Hey guys! Welcome to another post! The last few days I started trying out this “Triple Skin Rescue Kit” by NUDE Skincare. I have to say I’m very picky when it comes to skincare as the only things I use are very natural (often homemade) and not many at all. But! For the last days, I’ve been trying this kit every night before I go to sleep and I have to say: I really like it!
The kit comes with 3 products:
– An omega cleansing jelly: which you use to remove any make up your skin may still retain
An omega rescue oil: which refines and defends against free radicals (check out what “free radicals mean: CLICKING HERE)
A detox frizzy powder: which you only use 3 times a week to brighten and smooth you skin
Of course you have to allow some time to notice clear effects. But only from using it a few times I already love the fresh feeling that I get after doing this and how soft my skin feels afterwards. Not to mention the beautiful smell that they have!
I like this brand because they don’t test on animals and most of their products are vegan! Also they use very natural ingredients like papaya extract, thyme or carrots.
So I recommend you to maybe give this ago if you’re looking for a natural and kind skincare treatment!
See ya later in another post!

Hola chic@s! Bienvenidos a otro post! Éstos últimos días he estado probando este “Kit Triple de Rescate Facial” de NUDE Skincare. Tengo que decir que soy muy selectiva a la hora del cuidado de la piel ya que las únicas cosas que uso son muy naturales (por lo general caseras) y ni siquiera en gran cantidad o variedad. Pero! Desde hace unos días que he estado probando este kit cada noche antes de irme a dormir y tengo que decir: que me gusta mucho!
El kit vine con 3 productos:
Un gel de omega para limpieza de la piel: que usas para quitar cualquier exceso de maquillaje
Un aceite de rescate de omega: que refina y defiende contra los radicales libres (echa un vistazo a lo que “los radicales libres” significan: HACIENDO CLIC AQUÍ)
Un polvo gaseoso detox: que sólo se utiliza 3 veces por semana para aclarar y suavizar la piel
Obviamente tienes que dejar que pase un poco de tiempo para ver claros resultados. Pero solo con usarlo unas pocas veces ya adoro la frescura que siento en la cara y lo suave que me la deja. Ni mencionar el perfume que tiene!
Me gusta esta marca porque no testa en animales y la mayoría de sus productos son veganos! También me gusta que usan ingredientes muy naturales como extracto de papaya, tomillo o zanahorias.
Así que recomiendo que lo pruebes si te apetece y/o estás buscando un tratamiento de piel bueno y natural!
Nos vemos en otro post!

Either you have or not a date to celebrate this day, LOVE should be demonstrated every single day (in my opinion). Ben came to see me for a long weekend and stayed til today. Remembering our past Valentines experiences featuring me forgetting Ben’s rose at the London Eye or having to spend it over the distance when I was in Tenerife… today was the day, our 4th Valentines celebration was going to be right! So we headed to “Vegan Hippo” for brunch, where you can choose a super cute little animal toy to redeem your order… (we chose the monkey)
Hey guys! Happy start of the week! Today I finally used for the first time my new backpack which I got from CHARLIE FEIST. I found their brand not too long ago and I loved the fact that they’re 100% cruelty-free and they use vegan leather 😀 I thought this backpack would be ideal for me to take to Uni as I can fit lots of things like my laptop, books, food, etc… Today I wore it for the first time and it was very comfy!
Make sure you check them out! I’m looking forward for them to release new designs 🙂
Hola chic@s! Feliz comienzo de semana! Hoy finalmente estrené mi nueva mochila de CHARLIE FEIST. Encontré su marca hace no mucho y me encanta el hecho de que son 100% libres de crueldad y usan cuero vegano 😀 Pensé que esta mochila sería ideal para ir a la Uni ya que puedo meter montón de cosas como mi ordenador, libros, comida, etc… Hoy la usé por primera vez y es super cómoda!
Asegúrense de echarle un vistazo! Ya estoy con ganas de ver sus nuevos diseños 🙂
Que tengan una semana maravillosa!
