Crio BRU COFFEE ALTERNATIVE

May 21, 2019 No Comments

Recently I was gifted some products from my lovely friends over at Crio Brü and since I’ve had them for over a week now, I’ve had a chance to really try them and their benefits.

What is Crio Brü? They are a company that sells coffee alternatives made from 100% roasted cocoa beans. There is no sugar, no gluten, no dairy and no fillers in their products and it’s filled to the brim with anti-oxidants, minerals and energy. Crio Brü have stated that their products contain “a natural stimulant called theobromine which is gentle, long-lasting and non-addictive.”

I was lucky enough to choose some of the products I wanted to try, and of course, I headed straight for the Lunar Latte and the Velvet Latte. Duh. Who doesn’t want pink or purple drinks? These two are absolutely phenomenal and I can’t recommend these two products enough.

The Lunar Latte is made up of chamomile, lavender, passionflower, purple carrots and Reishi mushroom – it definitely sounds like an odd combination, but these ingredients mixed together create the perfect pre bed drink to get you into that sleepy state. Personally, I suffer from insomnia and restlessness, especially at night time, and after trying this for a week, I can definitely say that this has helped put my mind at ease before bed and help me sleep.

Did you know that the Lunar Latte gets it’s purple colour from the anthocyanins (antioxidants) found in the purple carrot?

Velvet Latte is made up of beetroot, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, black pepper and whilst the peppers may make you turn your head and not want to try it… all I can say is, it doesn’t taste like pepper and it’s really delicious. I was a bit hesitant with this one when I read all the ingredients, but once I tasted it, a chai flavour erupted in my mouth and I was in heaven. Now, this one is packed full of goodness, the web page for the Velvet Latte states that “Beetroot is brilliant for detoxification, boosting energy and stamina, and lowering blood pressure. Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium (vital for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas). Beets also contain the B vitamin folate.”

Along with the superfood lattes, I was given one of their main products, the Cavalla – and it literally tastes like chocolate goodness; but healthy. Who would have thought that chocolate can be healthy? It has hints of coconut and cinnamon, but they are very subtle. Honestly, I hate coconut, and I couldn’t even taste it – bonus! This was delicious with a dash of milk and some biscuits.

One product I was given, I had heard about and seen in my local shops – Rooibos tea. I’d heard that this product was great for vitamin c and anti-oxidants, so when I received the Red Espresso, I was excited to try this as it was always something I was hesitant to try. This one, I have definitely had more than once and it’s also my partners favourite out of everything I was gifted, so it’s nearly all finished. Surprisingly, it has 5x more anti-oxidants than green tea and it has no additives, no GMOs, no caffeine and no sugar – that is amazing for myself as I don’t do well with caffeine, sugar and I need all the anti-oxidants I can get.

Lastly, the Pumpkin Spice which was definitely not what I was expecting! I didn’t think I would like it, but I was pleasantly surprised as I tasted spicy hints, almost like a chai latte. This product is described as “rich, warm, all-natural cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves blended with premium, chocolaty cocoa grounds” – which is definitely correct!

Overall, I’m super happy with all of these products, and I will definitely be ordering more when I run out of my favourites in the future – and I’m also keen to try out some of the other products, like the other superfood lattes. I just can’t resist those pretty colours.

I was lucky to be given a promotion code to use for the rest of May – so if you wan’t to head over and buy something (they sell samples, too), then don’t forget to chuck in code “BO10” for 10% off your order – I do not receive anything in return or gain commission if you use this code, it’s purely because I love these products and want to share it with my followers.

  • This is a really confronting post for me. My back rolls are huge and it’s the first thing I see. Sometimes I don’t always like some things about my body, and I’m just going to remind you that it’s perfectly okay to feel that way ❤️ Honestly, I look at this and want to not post it but I’m pushing that feeling aside and conquering the fear of negativity and putting it out for the world to see. Back rolls, cellulite and all.

I’m always finding new ways to love myself and new things to take pride in, so right now I’m saying f*** it and I’m going to love my back rolls, because they’re a part of me and make me nice and squishy 😂
  • When life gives you lemons, make lemonade 🍋

How adorable are these lemon earrings by @oskaraustralia ?! I’m absolutely in love with them and they’re super cute to complete an outfit. You’ll definitely be seeing these in my ears a lot 👀

  • So in love with my @littlesomethingsleepwear personalised pj’s 🥰

They are SO luxurious and they’ve just recently expanded their size range, which is perfect because Christmas is just around the corner 🎄

Swipe to see some bloopers with my puppers 🐶 They wanted to be in the photos!
  • My body is just as good as a thin body and deserves just as much respect. I am going to continue to take up the same amount of space I always have and I will never apologise for it. My body does wonderful things and I will love it forever ❤️
  • COSMETIC INJECTIONS ‼️ SWIPE FOR BEFORE AND AFTER ‼️ I was so lucky to have @cosmeticnursebrittany reach out to me to see how she could help me with cosmetic injections. I jumped at the chance because one of my biggest insecurities is my mouth as it lifts weirdly on one side and goes gummy!

We did a simple procedure (that takes literally a minute), called a lip flip!! Just four simple injections of Botox to relax the muscles a little and pull the lip back/up to make the lips look poutier 👄

In the before and afters (before top, after bottom) you can see that my smile would pull to one side/go gummy on one side when I would smile open mouth. I really didn’t like this so @cosmeticnursebrittany helped even that up and I am SO BLOODY HAPPY with the results!!!! I am literally over the moon because it’s something so simple to help fix something I didn’t really like. All whilst still keeping a natural look 🥰

I booked with Brittany at Chadstone Shopping Centre but she’s also at a couple of other locations across Melbourne! I 100% trust her and I will definitely be going back to get fillers next as well as take my mum to her for some Botox too 🤗

Cheeky swipe to the last one and you can see a video of me getting my lip flip done! *I had the procedure done two weeks ago - that’s not bruising it’s the phone shadow in the lighting
  • I was lucky enough to be invited to take part in a very important photoshoot and the topic is something very close to me and something I will always promote.

#everybodyisabikinibody is something that I would love to scream from the rooftops and project to the entire world - but sadly, social media and societal standards discourage people from being happy in their own bodies. They project the idea that everyone has to have the perfect ratio body, flawless skin and to die for looks; but the honest truth is that you can look however you want to look.

My body may be fat and wonky, but I love it and I will wear my skin with pride. Every single person, no matter their size, shape, skin colour or age should be able to feel good about themselves - and they should definitely be able to go to the beach or pool and wear whatever the heck they want without being judged or criticised.

The photoshoot I was a part of showcases and highlights the point that we are all beautiful and all entitled to be comfortable and happy in our skin. I did struggle when I was younger to enjoy my body, and as I got older it became more apparent that i had to be skinny to fit in - but that’s so far from the truth, it’s crazy. It took me a long time and it was a long journey to become comfortable with my body and the way it looked, but the journey was so worth it that I wouldn’t change it for the world ❤️ If you want to do something but fear you can’t because of the way you look - remember that it’s okay to be scared and it’s more than okay to go against what society tells you. It’s okay to be yourself and love yourself. 
Photos are coming soon ❤️
  • Learning to love yourself is not just loving yourself in the good times, but also loving yourself when you’re goofing off and letting your double chin and rolls flap around 🤣

I promised I would show you the authentic me - and this is me 100%! Goofy, loud and playful 😜

Embrace yourself in ALL of your forms. Every single one of them. I promise you will enjoy yourself 100x more ❤️
