Hello everyone and welcome to the next Food Friday instalment. Whether you are a Slimming World Slimmer or a Low FODMAP friend, this Nando's Inspired Spicy Rice recipe is versatile and can be incorporated into lots of dishes. Now, I never used to like rice.

If you saw any of my daily vlogs back in September, you may know that there were several babies entering the world around me. Attending baby showers was a regular thing that month. A little while later and these babies have started to arrive. One, in particular, has been born to a very good friend of mine and I have been wracking my brains as to what to buy as a celebratory gift. Here is the little story surrounding the situation:(more…)
With autumn very much underway and Halloween now over, what better way to use up those pumpkins (or pick up some cheapies) than to pop some flowers in the top!

I mentioned in a recent vlog that I like to make cards. I make all sorts; birthday cards, baby cards, good luck cards, Christmas cards and anniversary cards. Mostly it seems I end up making birthday cards because everyone has a birthday and many of us celebrate the day.(more…)
How do you feel about makeup trends? I often find myself out of alignment but also like to find ways to incorporate the trends into my taste and style. This autumn, I have created two example looks and to see how I put them together, check out my YouTube video.(more…)
Whilst sat perusing the TAM Beauty website in a spendy mood, I came across the Pro 12 range. This was quite some time ago as the palette featured in my Makeup Revolution & Freedom Haul back in May. With the information was a video montage of swatches and views of the different palettes. Mikhila from MissBudgetBeauty made the video as part of her ongoing collaboration with the brand and a couple of the palettes stood out. This one, Romance and Jewels was one of them.(more…)
Finally, a solution to individual tags and my plans for keeping myself on track.
