Food: Bubble & Squeak

I don't know about you, but I have lots of vegetables and bits and bobs from the Christmas food shop edging towards its expiration date.

There is an easy way to make all these not so spectacular ingredients, into something pretty tasty.

Good old bubble and squeak!

Christmas Cheer!

I have always loved Christmas, when I was younger it was obvs because a load of presents were involved, but now it has a truly different meaning to me.

I thought I would chat about some elements that make Christmas time so special, and why I love embracing and enjoying every moment this month brings. It is nice to sit back and soak in all the gorgeous elements December brings.

Beauty: ReNEW Skincare & Aesthetics Liverpool

I was invited alone to ReNEW Skincare & Aesthetics in Liverpool to have a facial peel.

I am 31, and my skin has definitely changed over the past couple of years. I felt I needed to up my skincare routine, and start to delve into professional treatments now and again.

My concerns included my skin looking very dull,  some mild acne scarring that occurred after I had my son, clogged pores around my chin, blackheads, and fine lines.

The facial peel I decided to have, and recommended by Dr Kate was a salicylic peel. I had never had a facial peel before, and was a little apprehensive about having it done. After doing some research online and chatting with Dr Kate via email, I felt a lot more comfortable having the treatment done. I thought your skin actually peeled off, and it would burn and I would be a walking, talking, peeling tomato. Well thankfully, this is not the case.

Beauty: NYX Professional Makeup Sculpt & Highlight Brow Contour

I picked up the NYX Brow Contour by mistake, I was meant to pick up the NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil as I had read so many good reviews about it. I got all confused (nothing new there haha) and just seen NYX and Brow and lashed the wrong one in my basket.

Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Candle

With the colder months now well and truly here, we spend so much more time indoors snug as a bug.

Ah it gives me all the feels.

I get a bit obsessed with candles in the colder months, and go through a whole bunch.

I like to have a mixture of scented and unscented candles in my house. Unscented candles help to create a relaxing ambience, and bring a natural dim soothing light to any space. 

Scented candles naturally fill the space with light aromas, that can uplift, relax or invigorate. 

(Plus they are tonnes better than any dodgy air-freshener or plug-in).

Food: Turkey and Stuffing Rolls with Spicy Cranberry Jam

I am such a savoury type of gal, and I could gorge on all the pies and pastries all day long.
This is my take on the traditional sausage roll, but with a festive twist.
The Turkey and Stuffing Rolls, and the Cranberry Jam are super easy to make. The whole process takes around twenty minutes.

Beauty: L'Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes Mascara - So Couture Black

I am not really a mascara lover, woahhh wait what?

That so came out wrong.

What I meant was, my lashes aren't great, so even the best mascaras don't give me the long, fluttery lashes I crave so bad. (One day maybe, one day).

My Momma picked up the L'Oreal Paris Volume Million Lashes Mascara for me to try, I had read a lot of good reviews about this mascara, so I was excited to give it a whirl.

Food: Chicken and Bean Chilli with Pomegranate And Feta Roasted Vegetables

So this time of year it is all about hearty, filling and hot food - and lots of it.

But I don't wanna pile on the pounds at the same time, so I try and ditch the carbs a little (crying emoji) and up my protein and vegetable intake.

This for me is a dish I would cook of a weekend, when I have a little more time on my hands.

Beauty: Kiss Eyelashes & Giveaway

So lets get this out in the open. I ain't blessed with natural, long fluttery eyelashes.
My eyelashes are short and straight, so I depend a lot on false eyelashes to give me the lashes I always dreamed of.

*Kiss Eyelashes are a relatively new brand that I have seen stocked in Boots.
I was looking forward to trying the lashes and seeing how they compared to my favourite false eyelash brand - Eylure.
