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?

Dreamland For Spring/Summer 2019 - Press Trip

It's that time of year again, DREAMLAND is open for business! I get so many questions about Margate and DREAMLAND in particular, so why not do another post for you. 

As a South Kent girl through and through, this place has a special place in my heart. Full of nostalgia, and pride of what it's like now. 
You may or may know that I've actually created two blog posts already from DREAMLAND, but wanted to give you a little update on it. I also played around with my camera and a new setting so it's a bit of experimenting too haha. 
Shall we?

Lets get the disclaimer out the way if you didn't catch it in the top right corner. I was invited to the park on this day as press, so received a free wristband, food and drink tokens. I wasn't asked to create a blog post in any way, but I always like to as you guys like it and its such a fun place to photograph. 

Now on to DREAMLAND:
I can't describe how much fun I always have when I visit this place. On this day pictured, it was…

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

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 pretty amazing vegetable when it comes to yo…

Current Cruelty Free Skincare & Lip care Gang | AD

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 I use on a rotation and not all at the same time. My skin enjoys it when it swap aroun…
