RECIPE: SIMPLE OATY COOKIES

January 09, 2015




Ingredients: 

75g Butter
75g Sugar
75g Oats 
75g Wholemeal flour 
1tsp baking powder
1tbsp Golden Syrup
1 tbsp Milk 


This is such a super easy recipe and these cookies are sure to disappear off the plate as soon as they're out of the oven! 

The method for this is super easy. Simply mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Then melt the butter, syrup and milk in a pan and mix into the dry ingredients. Spoon into small rounds on a greased baking tray and bake at 180 degrees for ten minutes or until golden brown! Leave to cool on the tray for 5 minutes before removing. Enjoy!

LIZ EARLE SKINCARE REVIEW

January 04, 2015



One of the things I love about christmas is getting to re-stock my beauty and skincare cabinet. I love feeling like I'm starting the year on a good healthy note. 

Liz Earle is a brand I've been using ever since my mum introduced the hot cloth cleanser to me when I was about 18. You massage the formula into your skin, rinse the muslin cloth in hot water and ring out, then buff the cleaner off your face. It's a staple cleanser that doesn't irritate my sensitive skin and smells lovely. 

Along with this I received the skin toner and eye tonic. You simply douse a cotton pad in each one, sweep the toner all over your skin and gently sweep the tonic over the eyelid area. I'm really in love with the eye tonic. It's so refreshing, effectively removes eye makeup and can be used as ten minute eye pads to treat tired eyes. 

In terms of moisturising, the light face moisturiser and hand cream is amazing an smells divine. The formula sinks in quickly and doesn't leave a greasy film or make my skin flare up like some moisturisers do. 

Has anyone else tried Liz Earle? What other products do you like? Let me know in the comments! 

WHAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS

December 31, 2014

First of all lets start with a little disclaimer before the nay-sayers start. ;) This post isn't done with any intention to brag about what I received. I find it really nice to see what other people got and I feel incredibly lucky this year. I was truly spoilt! 



I know its a bit of a cliche at the moment, and everyone seems to be getting one but I really love Micheal Kors watches. I've been after one for ages and my amazing other half let me pick one out for my present this year. I chose this classic rose gold one with a chronograph face, It's incredibly heavy and amazing quality and I'm completely in love with it. 


Im a bit of a stickler when it comes to perfume. For the last couple of years Iv stuck with my Coco Mademoiselle which I adore. However for christmas I received a couple of new ones which is great for switching it up. I used to wear the D & G number 3 all the time but its becoming increasingly difficult to get hold of it. Its a lovely fruity scent which reminds me of pomegranates an lasts ages. 

The other perfume is Viktor and Rolf Bon Bon. It's a fairly sweet scent with notes of vanilla which I wouldn't ordinarily choose however it is a lovely day time perfume and is nice and light. The bottle is so gorgeous as well. It looks so pretty on my dressing table!


My main presents off my parents and Tom were my amazing bag and purse. It's something I've been wanting all year and I'm so happy and lucky. It's a classic black and gold and amazing quality. I've been keeping it for weekend use only as I'm super protective over it! I really want to keep it in best condition. 

I got lots of other bits and pieces but I thought I would just show my main pressies. I'm super lucky and so grateful for everything I got. Has anyone else done this kind of post? I would love to see. 

Hope everyone enjoys new year tonight!

IM BACK

December 29, 2014

First of all...I'll wish you all a belated happy christmas. I've been away for a while. I guess those of you who reads my blog on a regular basis knows this. In a short explanation...I took some time off to gain a better perspective on blogging. I had reached a point where I was no longer excited by it...I felt like I was flogging a dead horse so to speak. So I had a few weeks off and I can safely say I'm feeling much better and more refreshed. I dealt with some family issues, spent some time with my other half and made sure my heath has been in a much better way.

Has anyone ever done the same? I'd be interested to know if anyone else ever felt like a time off break has done them the world of good.

And so I'll leave you with this. A few snippets from my christmas. I'll do a "what I got for christmas" post tomorrow.

Thanks for sticking with me guys.
