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

*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
