BREAKFAST FOR CHAMPS (BUSY CHAMPS)



i've never ever been so excited to eat breakfast. since waking up early is now in my everyday schedule, i'm finding it easier and easier to sit down with a cup of tea and breakfast in the morning. i would normally never have time to do such a thing (well i would tell myself that anyway). incorporating this into your daily schedule is so important! i've found that it gives me a nice kickstart to my day, but it's so hard when you've got a busy schedule so these are two breakfast recipes that take hardly any time at all:

i made overnight oats
1:1 ratio of oats/greek yoghurt + a splash of milk, chia seeds, sweetened with maple syrup and left overnight to soak. this literally takes less than five minutes the night before! you can use whatever spices/sweeteners you want as well, just stick to the 1:1 ratio and customise to your liking with toppings. i topped mine with blueberries, raspberries, almonds, chia + drizzled with more syrup. yum.

if oats aren't your thing,
... yesterday i made a smoothie bowl which tasted amazing
berry banana smoothie topped with banana slices, almonds, raspberries, blackberries + chia. again, you can customise this to whatever you like in your smoothies and whatever you like on top.

now i'm ready to make an acai bowl for tomorrow morning!
i would definitely recommend these quick + easy breakfast recipes. you can even make overnight oats in a jar for something you can grab quickly in the morning and eat on the way to work/uni!

REVIEW: SHAPES LIGHT + CRISPY






today was such a good day! 
two great things arrived at my door step: 
ed sheeran tickets(!!!) and a box with two packets inside... 
the new arnotts shapes light and crispy in two flavours! sweet chilli and sour cream + tasty cheddar and chives. 

i'm already a shapes fan (cheese and bacon shapes anyone?!) but these thinner crackers are a different story. with 75% less saturated fat than normal potato chips, they make for a healthier alternative when you're just craving a little something. the name says it all. these new shapes are light, crisp and taste good on their own or with cute little toppings! they make a perfect bite-sized treat for a lazy afternoon off  or actually any time at all. 


super huge thank you to nzgirl, for sending these out to me!
has anyone else tried these?
