Who’s behind the blog

With this blog, the aim is to motivate and inspire you to lead happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives, bring you parenting stories, healthy recipes, a good dose of fitness, reviews of my favourite products and other things that I love and want to share.

Hello and welcome to my blog!

Let me tell you a little about myself…

My name is Vickie Louise and I’m a busy mom to a boy with special needs. I’m also a plant-based foodie, runner, weightlifter, blogger, chocolate lover and anything pink addict. With an enthusiasm for life and a passion for health, fitness, self-care and just generally trying to be a good mom.

Find something that gives you passion and stick with it.  It should make you feel amazing. Do what you love and love what you do.

I launched this blog after two years of changing my lifestyle. Up until the age of 30, I made bad choices. I had no idea what a healthy lifestyle consisted of. Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t huge, at least that’s what I thought at the time and I certainly wasn’t healthy and you wouldn’t have caught me exercising.

Now, at the age of 33, I’m a completely different person. I’m aware of what impact we have on the environment and I try to live simply and contribute less to the damage of the planet, I lift weights (and love it), I run and I have a healthy balanced diet, I’m full of motivation, I push myself to my limits and I strongly believe in doing what you love.  That motto has kind of got me to where I am today.

I love to spend my time creating plant-based, feel-good recipes, dancing with my little man, drinking coffee and sharing tips, tricks and lots of love.
