Happy Birthday Keeping Healthy Getting Stylish! + GIVEAWAY

Today Keeping Healthy Getting Stylish is 2 years old! I can’t believe I’ve been blogging for that long!


Myself and the blog have grown so much over these last two years. When I first started out I honestly never expected to have a lot of readers and I was just blogging pretty much a food and exercise diary. But as I have changed and developed as a person, the blog has changed and reflected this. I can’t believe how different I am now! I’d never dreamed I would love actually learn to love running, enjoy serving size bowl salads and raw foods!

I owe so much to blogging, first of all I would have never heard of green smoothies…


I can’t imagine life without these now ;-) I would also be oblivious to Oats in a Jar…


…and peanut flour…


…and chia seeds…


…and healthy snack bars:


Most of all, I would have missed out on meeting some wonderful people, both in the flesh and virtually, many of whom I consider true friends. I have to admit there has been times for whatever reason, I’ve thought about packing in blogging, but the comments, emails and tweets from readers that tell me I’m inspiring them keeps me going :-) I love blogging and being able to share all my passions with others.

So to celebrate the blogs 2nd Birthday I’ve pulled together a small giveaway of a few of my favourite things that I’ve discovered due to blogging:

P1130083 (I’m awaiting the PB flour and Lara bars to arrive from iHerb)

The prize includes:

  • Peanut Flour (453g)
  • 5 x Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Lara Bars
  • 3 x Nakd bars (gingerbread, choc orange and cashew cookie)
  • Chia seeds
  • A sachet of strawberry hemp protein powder – I may not be able to make you a green smoothie and send it as a prize but at least you can make yourself a PB&J one using this and the peanut flour – I’ll even enclose a recipe!
