Allergy safe Easter rainbow cookies



For most people Easter is when you can scoff as much chocolate as you want and no one judges. This year I'm not one of those people. Since finding out that dairy is really no good for me back in September it's really changed my diet as you can imagine, and for someone who loves their food has been quite tough. Obviously being a foodie I found a way around my favourite meals and snacks and have a yummy cookie recipe to share with you as my Easter treat.

Ingredients: 200g Dairy free butter, 300g Caster sugar, 2 medium eggs, 300g Gluten free Self raising flour, 1 teaspoon Xanthan gum.

Additional ingredients (if you want them gluten free do not use the lotus spread): Sprinkles, Dairy free chocolate chipsLotus caramel spreadJelly beans, almond milk.


Pre cooking steps: Pre-hreat the oven to 200C or gas mark 6 and line your baking trays.

Step one:
I tend to leave the butter out of the fridge until room temperature or you could pop it in a bowl and in the microwave until soft. Using an electric whisk cream up the butter and sugar together. 

Step two:
Pop both eggs into the mixture and mix a little more until completely blended. 

Step three:
Next is all your dry ingredients; I like to add in the flour a little at a time mixing as you go. To complete the dry step add in your teaspoon of Xanthan gum (this enables the mixture to hold together because you are using gluten free flour). If it seems too dry pop in a drop of almond milk however be careful not to make it too sticky as it will be difficult to handle. 

Step four:
Throw in all of your additional ingredients. I feel that more is better as theres nothing worse than eating a cookie with only a few choc chips in. So I added 3 packets of jelly beans, 3 packets of white choc chips and some sprinkles.

Step five:
I used a table spoon to pick up my desired amount for the cookies, I like a big thick cookie so can only put 5 on each tray. For the cookies that I stuffed caramel spread into I just flattened the mixture in my hand, popped the caramel in the middle and covered like a parcel. I made two batches, one that was just dairy free and one that was gluten free as well.

If you make these cookies following this recipe I would love to see them so please tag me in it! 

Happy Easter all, eat an Easter egg or two for me :)

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
