Reminiscing over some Easter treats

I'm pretty sure I spent the majority of the Easter weekend in the kitchen baking which I'm pretty happy about. Even though I'm dairy free and gluten free I really enjoy making things for others to eat. This means some of these baked treats aren't freefrom (which I'll label clearly). 

This major baking session didn't come out of the blue, it was spurred on by Zoe who put up an Easter treats video a few days ago. Minding my own business the other evening I watched it as I brushed my teeth and decided then and there that Easter weekend was going to be spent baking. 

The first treat I made were these Mini Confetti Meringues. I made these gluten and dairy free by using Vitalife dairy free butter and dark chocolate that contains no dairy or wheat. As they're small they're great for bite sized treats, but do still take an hour to bake in the oven. You can use whatever sprinkles you want, but if you are dairy free or gluten free make sure to read the labels!


Secondly came the Cream Egg brownies which aren't freefrom what so ever, but boy don't they look good! I make these every year for my boyfriend as he loves them and use a brownie recipe I've had for years. If you want a recipe to follow specifically for these then this from ASDA is very similar. 

As a kid I remember loving Rice Crispy squares so much and everyone at school used to take the Kelloggs ones. Well, who needs Kelloggs when you can make your own with added chocolate eggs of your choice?! I decided to use gluten free Rice Crispies from Nestle and then mini eggs (which I can't eat but can eat around), That way I can still enjoy them. 

Did you do any baking over the Easter weekend? Do you have any recipes or treats you think I'd like to make?

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

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
