Hello everyone, So I thought I’d do my first little happy and healthy post!

I feel within the world at the moment a lot of females and males are pressured by media and the aim to look a certain way and be the so called ‘perfect’ looking person. I don’t think people on social media aim to go about causing these pressures on people on purpose, but I feel as though Media can show unrealistic representations and not a lot of people promote loving who you are. However, I do know thats some areas of social media are great for motivation and there are some wonderful people out there promoting healthy living, but my point is a lot of people do struggle from it as well.

I’m not going to write loads and loads within this post talking about how I do this, that and the other to keep healthy, because one Its just my own opinions and two I do struggle with keeping healthy and fit and I just aim to take every day as it comes, when it comes to fitness.

I believe we should never set goals for ourselves based on an image you may see on the internet, because your body is yours and its unique to you. We don’t all look the same, and if you are happy and healthy thats all that matters. And remember we all have different Genes, different curves, different bums, different love handles, long legs, short legs, big boobs, small boobs… and no matter what you do and how you work out you will always have your own unique body, and everyone is beautiful. I believe when it comes to fittness its really about finding what works for you, and its taken me ages to find things that work for me. EVERYONE IS DIFFERENT.

I think its good to surround yourself with people that make you smile and laugh a lot, and be able to talk about how you feel!! And eating in a way that suits you. Eating has such a huge impact on how you feel, and its important to make sure your eating enough too. Eating with a healthy balance doesn’t mean never eating the things you love…I think its about making sure your eating enough and eating meals full of nutrients and goodness. I’m no expert at all and I’m still learning a lot about my body and what things work for me when it comes to food..but the one thing I do know is eating healthy makes a huge difference to how you feel.

I have days where I don’t feel motivated and feel fed up and then I try and remember how relaxed and happy I feel after doing a little bit of exercise, and its just what works for me. I think it’s good to try out things that work for your body! And as long as you feel happy and listen to how your body is doing, thats the main thing. And by no means am I saying you have to work out to be healthy because thats not it at all. I just wanted to share a few of my views as I think it needs to be spoken about more.

I thought I’d end this post with a few lovely places you can go to, that do amazing food! This is within Brighton but each restaurant has lots all over the UK so I highly recommend going and trying out their yummy foods!

img_8542Iydea – Does the most yummy food, you pick what you want and create a bundle of yumminess!img_2894

img_2594Love Fit Cafe– Love Fit cafe is great for after gym work outs or just everyday, as they do loads of great meals! and the menu lists your macro nutrients!! (lists your carbs, fats and proteins).  Their smoothies are great too!

Pho- Pho is a healthy Vietnamese Restaurant that does such tasty dishes!! I also seriously recommend their green smoothie mojito!

Pizza Express– Pizza Express do some amazing pizzas and salads! and they now do vegan,gluent free and wheat free pizzas! This is the goat cheese and caramelize onion salad pizza, it was delicious!

The Chilli Pickle– Incredible Curries and Dishes that you have to try!!!

Now these are just a few places that do lovely food, but Bill’s is also top of my list, and I can’t keep away! and if you happen to live in Brighton and you know where Sydney Street is (with Dirty Harry’s) You need to go try an Acai Smoothie at The Guarana Bar!!! They supply a diverse range of premium guaraná based products from Brazil and provide high quality unique superfoods!!

Anyway, going out for food can be pricey so I tend to go to Infinity Food’s the health food store to get organic yummy ingredients to make dishes at home!! Heres a picture of my usual breakfast at the moment now its winter, a bowl of porridge to keep me going and large smoothie!

Thanks for taking the time to read this post!!

Love, India Moon.

Hello Lovelies,  How’s it going!

So it’s finally becoming all wintery and it’s starting to get freezing… I spend a lot of my time reminiscing about my summers, and recently decided to find some of my old travelling pictures. So, I thought I’d do a little post about my little adventure to the Gili Islands. I’m going to talk about some little fun tips about all three of these beautiful islands, just so I can talk and think about them a little bit longer…

I was lucky enough to travel around Indonesia with three of my close friends, and we decided that we had to experience all the Gili Islands! We headed by boat from Nusa Lembongan to Gili Trawangan, which is known as the more busy and party island out of the three! It’s Beautiful! We spent the afternoon looking for a place to stay which wasn’t hard as everyone at the boat port all offer loads of places to stay. As we were on a low budget we just settled for anywhere clean with a bed and shower, as we would spend most our time outside our room exploring anyway.

Gili T is so lovely, you can ride around the whole thing and the sun sets are one of the most beautiful ones I’ve ever seen. It’s incredible and of course they have the famous swings which you can sit on and watch the sun go down.

Theres also a turtle reservation so you can see all the little baby turtles the island look after to keep the population of turtles going.

After spending a few nights on Gili T on the beaches and drinking lots of Bintang (the beer there which is really good). We decided to do a day trip snorkelling to Gili Meno, we were told this was a quieter island with less noise and attractions and when we got there again it was so beautiful and very open with a few nice hotels. It seemed like a great place for a couples holiday however we wanted to stay somewhere with a bit more going on, so a day trip was just enough for us!

Then we went to Gili Air, which we loved!! It was easy to bike/walk around the island and was a great place for us to relax. We spent most of our days playing cards in beach cafes and swimming in the sea and enjoying the peacefulness. And at night you can see the glowing plankton (bioluminescent plankton), which makes the sea look like it has thousands of stars in it.

So if you ever get the chance, I recommend going to at least one or all three of these islands, they are all beautiful! Here’s a few photos from my trip!

Love, India Moon.

Hello Everyone!!

I’m pretty sure I won’t be the only one who has a bit of a struggle trying to find the right birthday outfit…I started looking months before my 21st! I had my party a few weeks before my actual birthday just so all my friends could come before leaving me to go off to university! Its been just over a month now, and I’m sitting on my lunch at University and I’m finding myself dreaming of being out with my friends…I already can’t wait for another night were I can wear this dress again!! I order it from the amazing My Bandage Dress, and it was the first time I ordered anything from them so I was a bit worried about sizing, I ended up ordering a XSmall, after speaking to a few people online who had order them before and it fitted perfectly. I have to say its my favourite outfit I have at the minute!

If you ever need ideas for sites to look at for your special occasions or 21st birthdays, here are a few of my favourite clothing website with great deals and beautiful clothes, Missguided, Boohoo, PrettyLittleThing, OhPolly, TigerMist, Forever21, Missyempire, Rebelliousfashion, BleuLuxury, TheFashionBible, SaboSkirt and of course My Bandage Dress! Feel free to Message me if you ever have any questions about other places I shop from!

Love, India Moon

Hello!!! I thought I’d write my first post back about some of the things I got up to this summer!!

Although I spent a lot of my time working to save for University, I’m also lucky enough to have my two lovely grandparents living in Penzance, Cornwall. I spent a few weeks there learning to surf, going for big walks, and lying on the beach!! I’ve grown up visiting Cornwall, being on the beaches covered in sand and getting thrown around by the waves, it is one of my favourite places on earth. If you haven’t been I hope this post makes you want to go because I’d recommend going here to anyone. Its my little escape!

My first two weeks away, me and my boyfriend Jamie decided to do a surfing course for 4 days with Smart Surf School, on Sennen Beach! I surfed a bit in Bali and absolutely loved it, so I wanted to learn some more skills and try and become a little better.

Sennen is one of the most beautiful beaches, and Me and Jamie were so so excited. We went down early on our first day and couldn’t wait to get in the water even if it was a little cold at first (once your in and in your wetsuit and focusing on learning, you don’t even notice). Smart Surf school were amazing too, Sam Smart and his Brother Seb Smart are great surfers and teachers, who have a wonderful team, all of whom are experienced surfers and life guards. They taught us so many techniques and we had such a laugh with them. The great thing was they teach in small groups and believe the best way to learn is getting out and doing it! After about 20 minutes of warming up and getting to know the boards, we were in the water testing out our steering and paddling techniques, and by day two we were already standing up! Me and Jamie absolutely loved it, although a small tip, remember not to put suncream on your forehead, as Jamie went blind for a good five minutes in the water…

If you ever get the chance to go to Cornwall and wanna try surfing lessons go check out Smart Surfs Website they are such a cool bunch of people and I can’t wait to go back and have more lessons with them! http://www.sennensurfschool.com

a few photos of us surfing. 

There are so many beautiful places to visit in Cornwall, I have so many favourite beaches there and I always try and visit them every time I go down. My Grandparents also live very near to the little habour called Mousehole, which is a small fishing village and it’s so so lovely. It’s a stunning place to walk through and sit and look out from the habour, or even spend an evening in the lovely restaurants. I highly recommend ‘2 Fore Street’ restaurant, their food is incredible…I can’t stop thinking about it.

I could talk about how much I love Cornwall forever but I think I’ll save some of it for another post soon and tell you all about the different beaches you can visit, otherwise this post may go on and on… and for now I’ll just show you a few more photos of the beautiful places I went in Cornwall during summer…

Love, India Moon.

Hey there!! So its been a while…a little too long.

I put off writing as I was getting a little caught up with everything around me, I recently started university doing Digital Film Production. Which I have spoken about doing for years now, and I think my nerves about things changing got to me. However, I absolutely love the course I’m doing already and I want to be able to talk about my experiences over the next few years and use my blog as my own little space to share with you my work, lifestyle ideas, fashion, photography, films, travels and more!

Love, India Moon
