What do blueberries, Brazilian inspired underwear, and a couple butt-lifting exercises have in common? Absolutely nothing.

So moving on, we’ll start with the blueberries.

We know they’re good for us, we’ve heard all about it, I’m not going to go on about that. What I am going to go on about is how if you’re like me and live in an area that supplies some amazing spray-free and...

I know I said my next post was going to be some reviews, but I haven’t quite had time to pull that one together, with all my fitness classes up and on the go now, and my experimentation in the kitchen being semi-out of control. The review post will come up soon, hopefully in the next week, but just to keep you interested, here’s some sneak peak information on what I’ll be covering.
