Life without Anorexia

My motto is
'Dont let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present'

I am a generally happy girl who loves running, going to the gym and eating food!! Though my life has been very different.
I spent 5 years sick with anorexia nervosia & purging tendencies & over exercising. I was depressed and self harmed. I spent 2 years in different treatment centres.
After alot of struggles, lots of ups and downs, suicide attempts, tears, anxiety, panic and never thinking i would be healthy.
I am now declared healthy from anorexia nervosia.

I have been blogging for 4 years, and my whole journey is written in my posts. I now represent healthy and happiness. I want to show anyone struggling that it is possible to recover, no matter how hard it may seem.

I am happy and healthy and living my life. Going to school, meeting friends and trying to find myself in this world.

I write about my daily life, but also try to write posts about how it was when i was sick, advice and tips.
I am open and friendly, so dont be scared about writing a post or sending me an email at:

Pancake snack!

Snack time and wondering what to eat....We have few ingredients at home and i wasnt in the mood to stand and bake something, but i wanted something different than my usual snack. And then the idea of pancakes struck me! Its been forever since i made pancakes, and these were simple with few ingredients :)

Feeling tired today so i am going to continue my day of doing nothing, though if i muster some energy i will go out to an outside cinema with my friends... i feel i should join them, i mean school starts in 3 days. Though it all depends whether i choose to continue lying in bed, or if i actually want to get dressed today!!!


  1. Ooh that looks amazing! I have a random question for you I hope you don't mind. How much do you pay for a Questbar? I'm just wondering because they have to import them from the UK all the way to South Africa here and it costs about R30 or $3. Maybe I should buy a box online

    1. I pay c.a 2.50 euro per bar if i buy in a shop here or c.a 30 euro per box, but when i order from Iherb i can get a box (including tax and shipping) for 20 euro... so ialmost always buy online as its so expensive to buy in stores :)

  2. They look really good. Could you post the recipe please?!?

  3. Yummmmm!!! Pancakes are a good go-to snack, especially topped with fruit and a nut butter! I don't like my pancakes with syrup usually, unless it's a super special occasion. Can't wait for the recipe!!!
    And which movie are you going to see at the open cinema??

    1. Im not much of a fan of syrup on pancakes either, i would prefer something like cream or jam but these syrups were really good :) (infact im using them on quark, oatmeal and even my egg cake now!! haha)
      It was some old film i think, though i decided to not go... ;)
