I felt so, so tired this week that for the first time since I started my group CBT course I contemplated not attending this morning. Almost as soon as the thought came into my mind I knew, from what I have learnt over the past few weeks, that I just needed to push myself to get on with it and not let any negative thinking take over. So I got up and out of bed and into the shower. That was the hardest part over and by the time I got dressed and put my make up on I felt ready to go and I was again looking forward to what this weeks session had in store for me.

It's not often i'm left speechless by a Lucky Dip Club box but February's box did indeed leave me lost for words! The Lucky Dip Club theme for February was 'Galentines' and when I opened up my box it was just an explosion of love, gal pals and girl power. Everything about it was perfection! It also happened to be quite stationery heavy which always gives me the best feels!

A little while ago a friend of mine told me about a new veggie / vegan cafe in Hertford called Mudlarks. We live about an hour away from Hertford and know the area well so I couldnt' wait to pay a visit and find out more about this new place for us to eat. Mudlarks is in fact the only plant based cafe in Hertford which is quite surprising as not only is Hertford full of restaurants and cafes, but it's also pretty close to London and has a quaint but cosmopolitan feel about it. It also happens to be where I met my husband so it's an area that has always held a place in my heart.

With Easter just around the corner I wanted to share with you all some of my favourite vegan Easter eggs and treats. Every year, and as more and more people turn to veganism, there seems to be a bigger and better choice of dairy free chocolate products. I've scoured the shops and the internet to be able to bring you what is in my opinion the very best of the best! A few of these products have been firmly penned onto my own Easter wish list and i'm sure they'll get you excited for the chocolate lovers favourite bank holiday weekend.

Quite strangely I found myself pretty excited for CBT this week. I still found it hard to get myself up and motivated in the morning but I was by no means dreading attending. Instead I felt eager to get there and i'd even go as far to say that I was looking forward to seeing everyone again. Last week was such a positive experience for me that it's definitely rubbed off on how I feel about attending the group. Obviously I am a natural worrier (if I wasn't I probably would find myself here in the first place) so I have already found myself dwelling on the prospect of progressing on my own once the group has finished. Today was session 3 out of 5 so I only have 2 more weeks to attend before it's all over.

If you're a Lush fan like me you will probably already know that their Easter range of products has been released and looks better than ever! The Lush Easter products are a great treat to enjoy over the Easter break but they also make a really nice alternative to buying people lots of chocolate. All of Lush's products are cruelty free and mostly vegan so they also make a more ethical choice of gift this Easter.

This week I attended the second session of my CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) group work programme and I have to say that, despite what a positive experience I had in my 1st session, it was a real struggle to motivate myself to go to the second one. There's no way I would have missed it but you know when it just feels like a struggle and like you're really forcing yourself to do something? It also doesn't help that this group takes place in the morning as this is the time of day which is the most difficult time for me.

I was recently sent a lovely Lip Vinyl from Saturated Colour which i've been really looking forward to reviewing and sharing with you all. Lip products by Saturated Colour are 100% cruelty free and most are also vegan friendly which makes them a great choice if you're looking to try out a new makeup brand.
