A little while ago, I was sent some treats from the lovely people at BUFF & BUTTER. I’ve always been a huge fan of using essential oils, and had recently jumped on board the Argan Oil train for my hair, so was keen to try more.
I’ve been camping twice in my life, once for a school trip in year 9 to Mersea, the other with a bunch of friends in a field behind my house. Both times I was massively ill-prepared and left with a bitter taste in my mouth about camping. I deemed it as not for me and moved on. But recently, whilst trawling through Pinterest I realised just how beautiful it could be!
Transitioning from Valentines Day in my last post, I felt like I’ve neglected one of the most loved UK holidays that is Pancake Day *Tues 9th February*! But these aren’t your regular run of the mill pancakes, these are my posh pancakes (namely because I finally have a Kitchenaid, & you can bet your bottom dollar I’m going to use it at every opportunity!)
I tell you one of the best things about having your own house, decorating for Christmas! Now I have always been a big fan of Christmas, one of those people who’s festivities start as soon as Halloween is over, but that feeling has multiplied tenfold now I get to decorate my own home.
Sorry, I’ve been a little MIA on the blogging front, but I have had the most stressful and exciting few months of my life. Basically, me and Matt bought our first house together, after a year and a half of searching for our perfect place, I am now sitting in my own front room, watching Scream Queens (recommended by the way!) and writing this blog post!
I never thought my skin was bad, sure, I get the occasional face demon, but in general I really try to look after my skin. I always take my make up off, I moisturise and use toner, but yet my skin was still a little lack lustre. Maybe that’s what being in your 20’s and working full time does to you, you lose your glow. So I was on a mission to get it back, and with the help of the lovelies at Skinade I was pleasantly surprised with the results.
As I’ve mentioned in my previous cooking post, I’m big on saving time, but love having a home cooked meal that I can quickly prepare without much thought after I’ve finished work. Enter my quick and easy lamb korma, that you can practically do with your eyes closed… which is normally the case after a full working day.
I’ve been meaning to write this post for, oh, I don’t know, 2 months now… Yeah bad planning on my part but I’ve finally got round to showing you what I bought when I went to Florida. I had specific sights set in my mind, I was heading to Bath and Body works for their Semi-Annual Sale, and despite what Matt says, I could and would squeeze 10 candles into my suitcase, and his negativity could be checked in at baggage!
Now I love getting dressed up and going out for a fancy meal as much as the next girl, but sometimes when you finish work you just want a no frills meal that’s not going to take hours to make – enter my go to, no fuss bacon cheeseburger that’s ready in under half an hour, perfect for those lazy days.
