Hello Glamourites,

Since August has hit I have realized I haven’t been totally watching how “healthy” I have been eating. It is just TOO tempting to eat all these yummy, greasy, sweet and juicy foods that aren’t necessarily good for you, unfortunately. Obviously my will power hasn’t been strong enough and hey, it’s summer, why not enjoy the delicious things in life! If you are wanting to have something that is tasty but will make you feel better about what you are eating try this smoothie. It is packed with nutritious ingredients and is very refreshing for the hot summer days.  Let me know what you think…and of course the shoe pick as well! xx Glamour Planner

Hello Glamourites,

Lately I have been trying to find extra ways to keep myself nice and cool with the heat of summer. Although don’t get me wrong I LOVE the heat! This recipe I found I must give credit to the Broken Bread blog at http://the-broken-bread.com but I have tried my own spin on it and you can use other fruit or ingredients you have around the house. Hope you are enjoying the sunshine xx Glamour Planner
