Dairy free winter drinks | #jaidemas


Not being much of a traditional tea drinker, and only a coffee girl at the weekends, I tend to live off herbal tea, green tea and hot chocolates during the week. I like starting my day with a fruity one that's quite light, and finishing off my day with a comforting, rich drink and thought I'd share as I understand the struggle of these colder days. 


Green tea ~ Tetley Beauty Tetley Immune Twinings Fudge Melts
These teas are one of my fav ways to enjoy a little warming beverage to kick start my day. The beauty tea is cucumber and apple and is so refreshing and really tasty. It contains B7 and is supposed to help maintain healthy hair and skin, which is always a bonus. I also really enjoy the immune tea, which is more fruity and tropical with pineapple and mango. This tea has added vitamin C and helps to support your immune system (and mine is shockingly bad so this is much needed). Both are lovely and easy to drink and a nice alternative to regular tea and coffee. 

The fudge melts don't state they have any promises to help with your beauty or immune, but they do taste a little indulgent. Some people just don't get the reason why I enjoy Green Tea and how I can even call it tasty or indulgent, but I just love the taste. 

Herbal tea ~ Pukka 
In general, I enjoy the majority of the Pukka tea flavours and tend to grab the variety box so I always have a good range to choose from depending on my mood. The night time and lemon, ginger and Manuka honey are my ultimate choices from the variety pack. Because they're wrapped singly I like chucking a couple in my work bag as ready to have whenever.

Hot Chocolate ~ Freddo Sweet Freedom Choc Shot
I follow the Accidentally Vegan instagram (which I'm so incredibly thankful for), and when they uploaded the picture of the Freddo Hot Chocolate as being unintentionally vegan, I virtually went straight to the supermarket to hunt it down. The ingredients on the back stating that 'It may contain milk' but isn't listed as an ingredient. I like to use rice milk or the foamable oat milk you can get as I find it makes the thickest and creamiest hot chocolates. Of course I top it off with some dairy free whipped and marshmallows. Evenings are when I like to treat myself to one of these naughty warming treats, however, I probably have a little too much per week. Whoops. 


Thanks for reading one of my #jaidemas posts! Now who's for a warm beverage?

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
