Freefrom Pancakes for Pancake Day !



Pancakes on Pancake Day is something that brings so many memories of being young and trying to eat as many as I could, and would layer with anything and everything. These days, my pancakes have to be very different to back then and am limited in terms of toppings (thank you IBD). But this doesn't mean I can't make incredibly tasty ones! 



Mrs Crimbles is a great company that specialise in FreeFrom food and have brought out these packets of batter and pastry mix which is a huge help to the freeform community, and give us some convenience in terms of having 'normal' food. Being gluten free is one thing, but I'm also vegan so am always making things from scratch to ensure they are edible and go along with my dietary requirements, so having these are great to have in the cupboard. 


The pancake batter mix is completely gluten free and asks for you to just add add and milk. In my case, I decided to mash us two bananas to act as the binder (instead of the egg) and used oat milk as it's quite creamy and has a nice natural sweet taste. I followed the recipe exactly and just substituted ingredients to make it vegan friendly.


I'm not going to go into too much detail about exactly how I made them, we all know how to make pancakes. But, for reference, I used 3 tablespoons of batter per pancake which made for these perfect American style fluffy pancakes. I topped them with some vegan chocolate chips, agave nectar, flaked almonds and chia seeds.



I love knowing what toppings everyone has on Pancake Day. It's so personal and there's just so many to choose from. I'm partial to strawberries and vegan squirty cream ........ watch out my social media platforms for some live Pancake Day action!

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
