TAKING A BREAK

As you may have noticed, except from last weeks post, I haven’t posted a blog post on here in 7 weeks! I am not very happy about this fact as I was on a roll posting every week since last May! Although I haven’t been able to actually access my blog recently, as my university has blocked WordPress and my site, which is really great of them! During this time I have been working non stop on my dissertation. I’ve finally handed in my finished project and although it didn’t quite sink in at first, it has now and I…

VEGAN ICED EASTER BISCUITS

If you’ve been following my blog for a little while you might know by now that for almost every occasion I like to make iced biscuits in different shapes according to which occasion I’m making them for. I’m like a child really but I just love the process of making and decorating biscuits! I have been giving myself a break from university work since I’ve just recently handed my dissertation in, so I just had such a chilled day making these biscuits while listening to George Ezra’s new album. If you’re having a chilled day this easter weekend this is…

LUSH 2018 VALENTINES DAY COLLECTION

Even though I haven’t been in a relationship since I was 16 I still appreciate valentines day in a different way. Everyone puts the focus on their boyfriends or girlfriends but I think theres nothing wrong with showing your family and friends how much you love and appreciate them on valentines day too. I don’t think you should feel sad if you’re single on valentines day either as it is the perfect excuse to pamper yourself! I love any excuse to have a pamper evening and Lush just makes it a whole lot easier! I think their valentines collections may…

CRUELTY FREE: DAILY WINTER MAKEUP ROUTINE

Usually I don’t change my daily makeup products very often as I love every product I currently use, the last time I switched up what I used was in the summer. So I thought it was about time I had a rearrange of my makeup for this season and start using some of the products I received for Christmas. Everything I use is cruelty free and theres a mix of drug store and high end products, you’ve probably seen me talk about some of these products in previous blog posts so I’ll just briefly mention those ones so I don’t…

CRUELTY FREE: SKINCARE ROUTINE

I have always been blessed with good clear skin, I rarely get breakouts and I always had an even skin tone. I didn’t suffer from acne as a teenager so I didn’t ever have a skin care routine, I used to just remove my makeup with a face wipe, washed my face with plain water and I had no problems can you believe it?! My skin changed when I was in my first year of university aged 21 and when my diet went down hill. When my skin plays up I can guarantee it is because I haven’t been eating…

ESSENTIALS THAT GET ME THROUGH WINTER

Winter isn’t my favourite season of the year, as much as I love snow I prefer warm temperatures and sunny days. I find it difficult at this time of the year to get motivated and get back into the swing of things after the festive period, so I’ve listed some of the things that I love to do to help make winter a little bit more bearable. Face masks – I feel like everyone needs to treat their skin right in the winter with a good moisturising face mask. The Lush rosy cheeks mask is one of the best to…

2018 BLOGGING GOALS

I started off 2017 with a blogging goals post but didn’t post again for about 4 months straight after that, which totally messed up my goals! I intend not to do that this year and I already have next weeks post complete so hopefully this is a step in the right direction! I will be trying to keep up with last years goals this year as well and constantly improve my blogging skills! You can read last years blogging goals post here. Create a media kit – I have heard other bloggers talk about a media kit which they have…

WHAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS

I love reading peoples what I got for Christmas/Birthday posts but I always feel a bit apprehensive to post my own as some people see them as bragging or showing off. When I read these types of posts I feel happy for the person and don’t see it as bragging, as all of the people I follow are grateful and genuine. I don’t intend to show off and I know how lucky I am, I was yet again spoilt rotten by my friends and family and I absolutely love everything I received. I’m not going to go into detail about…

VEGAN YULE CUPCAKES

Yule log is one of my favourite festive treats, I don’t think theres a Christmas goes by without me having a piece of yule log. Since I’m vegan I can’t have ‘normal’ yule log that you buy from the supermarket so I had to make my own. I tried to make a vegan yule log and I had a right nightmare with the sponge and rolling it so I decided to make life easier for myself and make a cupcake version. You might notice in the photos that some of the cupcakes have vanilla sponge rather than chocolate, this is…
