HEALTHY SUMMER FOODS

Image
Breakfast: Fresh Strawberries.(Just a brief meal post)
Summer is the perfect time to be buying all sorts of fruits which are finally in season and being sold in the supermarkets.
Lunch: Moroccan Cous-cous. Edamame,Pea and Broad-bean salad with chilli sauce. Sweet Chilli flatbreads with Houmous/Hummus.
 I'm trying out being a Pescetarian at the moment, so this meal was  perfect and has so many savoury flavours. 

Dinner: Tuna and Sweetcorn Pasta. Mixed salad leaves, cucumber, and peppers. Celery sticks with crunchy peanut-butter.  It may sound strange to be eating peanut butter with celery, however nuts are a good source of protein for non-meat-eaters; and it tastes surprisingly good!

GETTING TO KNOW: SMASHBOX.

Smashbox Cosmetics... I have never owned any Smashbox makeup before, and after using other people's and seeing reviews, I have finally been able to buy my own. I'm not going to lie, these products are quite pricey , (and I did have to save up for them) but its good to try high and lower-end brand's to work out if they are worth your wage.
The first thing I was told about was their new contour kit - including a contour, bronzer, and highlighting colour.


Inside the packaging (and on the mirror of the contour palette)there is instructions on how to apply it due to your different face shape, which is really useful if you aren't used to contouring.

The second thing I got was the Brow Tech To Go - crayon and gel. I have tried this before , and personally found it much easier to use than t…

Good Thing's face mask: ♥     ♥     ♥     ♥     ♥     ♥     ♥     ♥     ♥     ♥     ♥After a busy weekend - which for me consisted of babysitting,brownie making, party going, family meetups, and a lot of driving around - It's nice to be able to relax before Monday is sprung upon you, and the working week starts again.


To give my skin a boost for the rest of the week, I tried making my own face masks; however i soon discovered that we didn't have the correct ingredients, and some of them were pretty pricey. I had tried the packet facials before too, and although I have liked some in the past - they didn't quite feel natural enough to be putting on my sensitive skin.

Anyway, it wasn't until about 1 month ago that me and my mum decided to try out the Good Thing's Manuka face mask, and I'm so glad we did.


There was a wide range of different one's to choose from In Boots, including Avocado and Goji Berry (for only £5.99) - http://www.boots.com/en/Good-Things
