Christmas is practically upon us, but in case you do have a few hours spare over the weekend, I have a perfectly easy Christmas bake for you! I was inspired by a bake from Little Sunny Kitchen and although my cheery snowmen are by no means perfect, they nonetheless tasted great and brought a smile to lots of faces! It’s perfect to do with small children, as the recipe is simple and not too time consuming and I’m sure they could be brought even more to life with some hats or scarves to keep them warm! Already looking forward to giving these another go so I’ve included all the recipe details below!
I always love trying out new brands, especially those from the U.K. so was super excited when Wonderland Makeup got in touch about reviewing a selection of their products. They sent me through a primer, eyeshadow and nail varnish, which I’ve been testing out over the last few weeks.
It’s November and to say I’m super excited about Christmas would be quite the understatement. I love Christmas for so many reasons… the decorations, the food, the gift wrap… and of course it’s the perfect excuse to get a little dressed up! There’s nothing quite like making that extra special effort at Christmastime, getting a bit glammed up and really bringing that Christmas cheer. Seeing as I’m in such a Christmassy spirit, I thought it would be fun to do a little post with a few different outfits I plan to wear over the festive season.
Today’s post should probably have gone up before Halloween as all the photos are of pumpkins, but in my book it’s still O.K. to be Autumnal until Bonfire Night has passed. Also, this post isn’t really about pumpkins… it’s about TIME and how quickly it seems to be moving all of a sudden. I genuinely feel like it was still Summer basically a minute ago and now we’re plowing into November and Christmas is nearly upon us.
I’ve become obsessed with many things since getting engaged earlier this year, but I never expected my skin to be such a big one. Flowers, pastels and getting those little details just right were expected but I didn’t think I’d fall down a black hole of skincare products and regimes.
I’ve been on a bit of a mission really to discover what type of skin I have and the best products to suit it, so when Juliette Armand got in touch about reviewing some of their products I obviously jumped at the chance. They’re also in the process of a complete revamp of their packaging, with a clean, professional look that I’ve included an image of below. This feels like such an improvement, modernising the brand and showing off the quality of the products so much better.
Last weekend I attended an event at the Jo Malone store in Chichester as part of the launch of their English Oak fragrance. The whole event was such a dream, I feel so lucky to have been invited and had such a wonderful afternoon with some lovely local bloggers.
After a smooth start with some bubbles, chocolates and a good natter there was an amazing presentation of the new scents. This is the first time English Oak has been used as part of a fragrance and I honestly can’t believe it hasn’t before. It’s such a British icon and the smell really takes me back to childhood memories of camping and woodland adventures with my family.
I’m starting to try and eat a bit healthier and I’ve been increasingly seeing images of delicious looking smoothie bowls creeping up across my Instagram feed. One of my worst habits is not having any breakfast so I thought I’d try and dip my toe into smoothie bowl land.
