My Self Tanning Routine

My Self Tanning Routine

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well! I can’t believe its August already, where did July go!? I came back from my holiday in Menorca a few days ago and am already wishing I was back in the glorious sunshine unlike the typical British weather I was greeted to! Coming back from my holiday has thrown me off my usual routine, I feel as though I haven’t sat down and written a post in what seems like forever even though I was only gone a week! While I was away on my holls I managed to catch a slight natural tan but nothing that noticeable unfortunately so this year I thought I would brave it and try out a self/fake tan in the hope of looking a bit less pale this Summer. I’d heard great things about the Garnier Summer Body Lotion so I decided to go for this one and picked one up in the hope of achieving a ‘naturally sun kissed look.’ I must say I have been impressed with the results so far and thought I would share with you all the ins and outs of my self tanning routine that I have been doing recently and everything you need to know on how to achieve a natural looking tan without having to jet of to a place in the sun!

Victoria Sandwich Recipe

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well and are having a fabulous weekend! As you can probably tell recently, I have been really enjoying sharing more of my baking on my blog (see the new ‘baking’ category in the menu bar to see my recent bakes) so for this week’s post, as another baking post was due for this month I thought I would share with you how I made this classic Victoria Sandwich, perfect for a birthday, afternoon tea or a weekend bake! Although I am by no means an expert at baking, I love getting creative in the kitchen and this super scrumptious cake was so easy to bake so anyone can have a go at making it, plus most importantly it was rather delish! I hope you enjoy my lovelies…

Best filters for blog photos

Best filters for blog photos

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well and are having a lovely Sunday! It has only been until recently that I’ve been loving trying out new filters for my blog photos and different editing apps and although I never like to drastically change my pictures, I’ve noticed that adding a filter and perhaps adjusting the brightness really makes a big difference to the photo and turn it from being plain and dull to that bit more personalised and bright. I’m not saying I like to go too overboard and totally change the photo as sometimes if the sun is shining and there is hopefully good lighting, I don’t need to change anything. If the photo does need a bit of livening up however, a filter is a quick and easy fix! I thought I would share with you the apps and filters I have been using recently if you are also thinking of upping your blog/instagram game by giving your photos a bit of a refresh that hopefully you will love too…

Questions I’ve Never Answered

Questions I’ve Never Answered

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well! Today I thought I would sit down and do a more relaxed blog post and answer your questions that I have never answered before in the hope of getting to know me and the person behind the blog a bit more! Although I love sharing my opinions on beauty products in my usual posts, it’s sometimes nice to do a more chatty post which is something I definitely want to do more of on my blog to really get my personality across and me as a person. Thank you so much to everyone who sent in their questions as there were some good’uns and I thoroughly enjoyed answering as many of them as best I could! You might want to grab yourself a cuppa and get comfy as this could be quite the ramble! I hope you enjoy my lovelies… View Post

Rocky Road Crunch Bars

Rocky Road Crunch Bars

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well and are having a fabulous weekend! A few weeks ago at Easter I did a blog post on how to make Creme Egg Cupcakes which I was so pleased to see that you all seemed to enjoy! Although I am by no means the Mary Berry of baking, besides from blogging I also love baking and getting creative in the kitchen so after getting requests to do more baking on my blog which is definitely something I want to do more of, I thought for this weeks post I would share with you how I made these super easy (and scrumptious) Rocky Road Crunch Bars. These don’t require much skill or need any fancy ingredients to make so anyone can have a go at baking them if you fancy making some delish, chocolatey bakes! I know these aren’t the most healthiest of foods but they are perfect if you want to grab yourself a quick high calorie snack that everyone can enjoy! I hope you enjoy my lovelies…
