If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat, you'd have seen the fab lavender plant growing just outside my studio window. It really thrives in summer, and gathers all the bugs and butterflies around it, which is a pretty sight every time I go in here!

I grew up on smoothies. My mom used to create the most weird and wonderful concoctions of fruit and veg, all blended up into a practical and nutritious drink/snack.  Some flavors I loved, and some I hate to this day (hello trauma of beetroot!), but now find myself passing down my love of smoothies to my kids. And smoothie bowls are not only the latest healthy rage around, but I found it to be a super FUN and healthy snack for kids , as well as a lazy (but nutritious) breakfast option for busy gals ;)  Major bonus points that they look totally Instagram worthy (wink) AND are super good for you!
