The Clever Girl’s Guide to Choosing Coral Reef Safe Sunscreens
You need to choose a coral reef safe sunscreen before your next trip to the beach.
Forget that old bottle you have lurking in the back of your bathroom closet. And definitely, don’t go for the same mainstream brand you’ve been using forever.
Because if you do, you’ll be partly responsible for the death and destruction of coral and coral reefs across the world. Really.
Whilst you’ve been happily chilling out at the beach and enjoying the ocean over the years, the sunscreen you’ve been (very sensibly) wearing has been slowly washing off your skin and killing coral reefs.
10 Signs You Need to Reduce Your Sugar Intake ASAP
Did you know that the average UK adult sugar consumption is a staggering 58.8g each day?
That’s almost 15 teaspoons each and every day!
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this statistic for the first time, and I’m pretty sure you can’t either.
However, given the health risks that eating too much sugar brings plus the fact that the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) recommends that we should limit our daily sugar intake to 25g (5% of our daily calories) it looks like we need to make reducing our sugar intake a priority. But aside from measuring each and every teaspoon of sugar to pass our lips, how do we know if we’re eating too much sugar? [READ MORE HERE]

Did You Know the Contraceptive Pill Could ‘Break’ Your Hormones?
I’ll be honest. The contraceptive pill has been blessing for many women.
When it was introduced in the 60s, it accelerated the social revolution that was taking place at the time. Women were suddenly empowered to choose their own path through life and break out of the shadow of men without worrying about unplanned pregnancies.
They could take control, they could choose when to have children, they could follow exciting career paths or further education instead of getting married young and taking care of the kids. Life wouldn’t be quite the same today if it wasn’t for the contraceptive pill.
However, there’s a darker side to the contraceptive pill and other forms of hormonal contraception that often doesn’t get discussed. It’s the damage that those tiny little pills can do to our long-term hormonal health and even our experience of the menopause. [READ MORE HERE]
Why YOU Should Switch to a Menstrual Cup
I get it- they sound kinda ‘icky’ don’t they?
The thought of all that blood swooshing around in some strange plastic menstrual cup instead of getting sucked up by the same ‘clean’ tampons or towels you’ve been using since you got your very first period…
But actually, menstrual cups couldn’t be anything further from ‘icky’ and I’ve completely fallen in love with them!! Switching to them has completely revolutionised my world, simplified my life, and even helped me do my bit for saving the planet. [READ MORE HERE]
