I love the fact that not only do The Body Shop not test on animals but they also are involved in a wide number of charitys.  Money from certain gifts (this advent calender is one) are going towards the charity War Chid which will pay for a child to attend a class:)


Lush goodies unwrapped...

I finally caved in and went into Lush and treated myself to all these lovely goodies.

Candy mountain bubble bar - I broke a bit off the top of this to add a little extra to a bath I was running:)

Cinders bath bombs - these are probably my all time favourite bath bombs as I just love cinnamon 

I also bought the butterbear bath bomb but I've already used it:)

What's on your Lush wish list?

I'm back with a Body Shop makeup haul...


I've been out of blogging mode for a few weeks now, I've been busy with weddings, birthdays and mostly I just wanted to relax when getting home from work.  However when I received these beautiful Body Shop makeup items in the post it reignited my love of blogging!

I usually only order from the Body Shop online as you always get discount codes for their website and their delivery is always good. Below are the lovely items I bought:

~ Moisture foundation in 02
~ Blusher brush
~ Baked-to-last blush in 02 coral
Honey bronze bronzing powder in 01 light matte
Baked-to-last bronzer in 01 golden bronze
~ Powder puff

I have been wearing the foundation, blush and bronzers every day since I received them and I think they are amazing products.  Unfortunately I had to give up on the bourjois chocolate bronzer I was using as it kept bringing me out in spots so I'm thrilled that these products don't:)

Have you tried any of the body shop makeup, if so what are your favourite items?

I've been wanting to make this for ages:)

New cook books!...


If you are a usual reader of my blogs you'll be aware that I have coeliac disease which means I stick to a gluten free diet.  I have been wanting this honeybuns gluten free cookbook for so long! Therefore I was super excited when I received it as a birthday present!  It has yummy recipes like lemon drizzle cake, hazelnut cupcakes, baked apple muffins and many more.  I love how this book keeps each recipe to one page long which is easy to follow.

The above two books (Home Cooked & Kitchen Hero) are by one of my favourite cooks to watch on youtube, Donal Skehan.  I have went through these books and tabbed all the recipes I like the look/sound of and as you can see there are a lot of yellow and purple tabs!  As I stick to a gluten free diet some of these recipes might not be gluten free but as I've been on this diet for years now I know what I need to substitute to make it a gluten free dish. I can't wait to make dinners like the jerk chicken with mango salsa or the polenta chips with rosemary salt, they sound delicious!

As it's turned to Autumn I love making food in my slow cooker as I can leave it on either overnight or when I go to work.  This is such a good method to get tasty meals that aren't a big hassle to make.  This slow cooker cookbook by Audrey Deane has so many delicious recipes such as spanish chicken and chorizo, sweet & sour chicken or even a dessert recipe for banoffee pudding! 

What's your food inspiration or what are your favourite cook books?
