Book Review: Green Smoothies by Fern Green

The last book that I chose to review from Blogging For Books was Green Smoothies, written by Fern Green.


“Kickstart your metabolism, fire up your mind, and promote whole-body health.
Discover the health-boosting benefits of smoothies, juices, tonics, and nut milks. Find the perfect juice to help detoxify your body, enhance your digestion, or invigorate your metabolism.  Energize your day with 66 easy-to-follow, quick, and tasty recipes.  Learn simple ways to incorporate more greens into your diet every day.”

I was very intrigued by the book to begin with as I’ve always liked the thought of having a daily smoothie to boost health.  However, I’ve never really been a fan of making them as I just never know what to put in them, and what benefits certain ingredients have for my body.

Review: HASK Macadamia Oil Moisturizing Hair Care Collection

I recently got the opportunity to review the HASK Macadamia Oil Moisturizing Hair Care  Collection.  I was already familiar with the HASK brand but had never actually used it myself.   My local beauty stores sell it and I’ve been tempted to purchase it a couple of times based on the smell alone!

I was sent 4 items to review:

  • Macadamia Oil Moisturizing Shampoo
  • Macadamia Oil Moisturizing Conditioner
  • Macadamia Oil Moisturizing Deep Conditioner
  • Macadamia Shine Oil Treatment

I also got a HASK mini hairbrush as a little extra! 🙂


The macadamia oil range is aimed at people who have dry, damaged or over-processed hair.  Well, luckily enough for me (!!) my hair is all three!  I can have my hair cut and by the time it comes around to the next wash, it can be full of split ends, dry and brittle.  I always love hair products that allow my hair to feel smooth, look silky and smell delicious!

I’ve used the HASK Macadamia Oil Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner three times now and I’ve fallen in love with it so much!  The shampoo lathers up really well and I’ve found that a little does go a long way.  The conditioner is really smooth and feels luxurious but I have had to apply this liberally to ensure it goes through all of my hair.  Both smell absolutely amazing!  Adam even went into the bathroom afterwards and asked if I had been lighting candles in there.

Before blowdrying, I applied the Macadamia Shine oil Treatment through my hair, avoiding the roots as advised.  Once dry my hair felt so smooth, even without straightening it! The ends definitely seemed to be tamed and smoother than usual too.

The Macadamia Oil Moisturizing Deep Conditioner comes in a single use packet.  I kept this on for 10 minutes and it seriously worked wonders on my hair!  It made it smoother than ever!

I’ve really enjoyed reviewing this hair care range and I’m actually looking forward to buying some of the other HASK products as they do have some other ranges that I think will be great for my unruly hair! Check out their full range here 🙂

Review: Q&A a Day for Creatives: A 4-Year Journal by Potter Style

Some months ago, I saw a book being blogged about that was a journal for a year, and each day had its own suggestive sentence that you completed.  I enjoyed the style of the book and thought it was a nice idea to have a different type of diary that you could look back on to see what thoughts you were having on a particular day.  I searched for the book and placed it on my Amazon wish list.

When I finally got around to choosing my next review book from Blogging For Books, I noticed a very similar book to the one I had seen before…only it was better and much more suited to someone like myself!

Review: The Watercolor Course You’ve Always Wanted by Leslie Frontz


I’ve been drawn in by another painting book.  I’ve been on the lookout for one for a while as the ones I got from the library a while ago just weren’t what I needed.  When I draw or paint, I have to  use a photo of whatever the subject is.  I’ve never been any good at drawing what is in front of me; it’s just the way my mind processes images.  Even if I sit with a view ahead of me, I find it easier to take a photo of that view and then use the photo as a guide…I hope that makes sense!
