Gluten free crepes and waffles at The Creperie

I hold my hands up, I have a major sweet tooth, and pancakes, crepes and waffles are something I very much enjoy tucking into when I need a sweet fix. With what feels like an unlimited amount of combinations you could have, it's a meal that you'll never get bored of. Having had to completely cut out gluten from my diet (and living with a coeliac for 6 years) I've come accustom to baking and cooking gluten free, however, I never get my pancakes to look like The Creperies!

I was invited by the lovely people at Brightons 'The Creperie' to try out their gluten free crepes and waffles with a friend, and on route myself and my sister couldn't contain our excitement flapping are hands like school kids.

I opted for the lemon and sugar crepe and added banana and caramel. My sister went for the waffle with strawberries and cream, with a drizzling of Nutella (both of which were very photogenic and delicious). Even though they were both made with gluten free flour, they were both soft and didn't crumble or fall apart at all, which I've found to happen when I've made them at home myself. The consistency was very much how regular crepes and waffles are which was surprising considering they were gluten free.

Instagram is full of waffles, crepes and pancakes, you know the ones, they're thick and very dense looking with mountains of toppings and cream. Basically a whole load of you stodge. The Creperie offered us thin and much more manageable ones, but still gave a satisfying hit (Currently salivating over the melted Nutella).

I was so impressed with the crepe I ordered. In a way slightly blown away as it was so similar to a regular one that I'd come to miss so much. It was quite big, had no tears in it and with a lovely light brown and slightly crispy exterior. Cooked to perfection should I say. Being a little greedy, I added the sauce and banana and took a while to eat with a few brakes, but boy was it worth it. I was very tempted to just create my own using the list of toppings available, but there were so many to choose from it would of taken me ages to decide.

If you're in Brighton and fancy trying a new place to eat, whether that be sweet or savoury, I'd highly recommend The Creperie. A wide range of combinations and very flexible to suit your likes and dislikes. The interior is lovely and comfortable with great staff who are friendly and helpful. Food came very quickly and was presented to perfection (in which I took full advantage of and now have quite a few pictures in my camera roll). It doesn't matter if your coeliac or not, these crepes and waffles are great for all. But if you have a gluten free friend or family member, they'd really appreciate being able to eat here without the hassle of asking for gluten free as this is a registered gluten free restaurant!

Have you eaten here before? Do you think you'll swing by?

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
