This is one of my newest favourite recipes; mostly because it takes so little time to do and it tastes absolutely amazing!!
Due to J’s chronic fatigue, we don’t often indulge in date nights any more, but when Señor Buddha* got in touch and asked if we wanted to sample their menu, we dressed up and headed over; J wore a smart shirt and did his hair and I wore a dress!
When I went to the US in 2011, Pinkberry* was everywhere. So it was disappointing that the UK didn’t have any. Until now. They now have a UK flagship store in Islington, London and I went up to check them out on their opening day.
*side story* Before I even got there, I had a bit of a catastrophe. I was all for wearing my jeans until I stepped outside two hours before heading to the train station to find that it was boiling hot outside. I own the total of two pairs of shorts; one are massive and look hideous and the other are a lil bit too tight (they’re a size 8 and it turns out I am not.) So I hot-footed to Next, tried on ALL the shorts and picked up a pair I really liked. And two tops. I really like them so an OOTD might appear soon. When it’s stopped raining. Thanks England, you da best! Anyway…
I love cake; Victoria sponge, chocolate cake, lemon drizzle, you name it, I’ll be up for eating it! So when Bakerdays* got in touch and asked if I wanted to review their latest idea; the letterbox cake, I couldn’t really say no, could I?
Word seems to have got out that Bear is a little pro cat blogger. Would that make him a #cblogger? Anyway, after his foray into the world of food sampling, he’s now testing out the latest technology from Surefeed; a motion sensor cat food bowl! It’s totally gone to his head and he’s demanding his own blog! I don’t think so buddy!
A couple of months ago I went to my first Brighton blog meet and in my goody bag were two samples of Mintycoco; the coconut oil-pulling formula with peppermint which is for “leaving your mouth feeling fresh, your teeth looking whiter and your gums healthy.” I decided to give it a go….
I’ve never subscribed to a monthly box before, mostly because I’ve seen a lot of mixed reviews, especially around beauty boxes, where a lot of people seem increasingly unhappy with the products they’re getting. I don’t want to pay that amount of money every month for products I might not like and I can’t even give them to J, because he’s not going to wear them. As far as I know. He does rock eyeliner like a pro though 😉
But then word came of a new kind of subscription box. And I was sent one to try out 😀
I was suffering with migraines/headaches/dizziness last week and was feeling pretty sorry for myself; that is until a parcel arrived for me from Tillyanna* <3
As you know, I recently went into town and picked up some bits and bobs. Unfortunately two items quickly got the can. I hate not giving things a proper try, but for me these products really didn’t work at all from the outset.
Back in November 2013, I was about to go on my first official date with J, so I popped to my local hairdresser to get my hair done! Talk about trying to make a good impression! She said she’d just bought a Curl Secret which was relatively new. I was really intrigued so I said I’d be her guinea pig and let her try it out on my hair!!
