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

A November Book Haul

contains pr products, *aff My obsession with books and reading is still going strong guys! Since my post way back outlining how I was getting back into ready ... I think was back in 2018 and here we are. I've smashed my Goodreads goal of reading 50 books this year, and I'm actually closer to achieving 100 books read. I don't want to put too much pressure on myself but, I'd LOVE to get there. Anyway, books are a huge part of my life now. And even though I like everyone go through slumps where I don't want to read anything, when I am in the reading mood I normally have a few on the go at the same time and have turned into a big mood reader. Which I've found actually helps me get through books so much quicker.  As a member of the Book Break Insiders Influencer group, I am lucky enough to be sent a selection of books every month. Which helps to keep my nose is a book that's for sure! Book 1: The Silence by Don DeLillo* A timely and compelling novel about what ha

Cruelty Free Beauty | Brands and Product Favourites

Good day beauties! So, you guys have been messaging me here, there and everywhere about sharing my top cruelty free beauty products and brands with you.  And because my cruelty free living post did so well, guess what you guys have today?  You've guessed right! And I'm super happy to share with you some top beauty products and brands I reach for, but first I'd like to just share with you why going cruelty free is good.  For me, having a cruelty free lifestyle means not using anything containing animals or their by-products, or using products where animals have been mistreated and used for testing them, and is the way I wish I had chosen to live my life a long time ago. Make up and skincare are products are materialistic in my eyes. We want these things and like them, so I think it's so unfair for innocent animals to be used, killed, kept in awful conditions and tested on against their will just so we could have that new mascara. There's just no need for
