Bioactive Beauty Drinks from Beauty & Go

When you hear the word beauty, what instantly comes into your head? I firstly think of makeup products and skincare purely because I am surrounded by them in my day to day life. But then I think of beauty that comes from within and the beauty that surrounds us. Some of us wear out our Nutribullets by juicing to get our daily dose of our five-a-day, and some of us

New Year, new you – are you falling for that cliché too?

And I’m back! Happy New Year to all and whoever may be reading this. It’s a New Year and a New Me! Haha…I can almost hear you nearly choke on your tea! Such a cliché right! Yes, it’s a new year, but not so dissimilar to the previous year (minus the fact that it’s 2017 not 2016) and well, as much as I would have like to have morphed into
