Baking with M&S – Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcake Recipe
by

Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcake Recipe This week I have teamed up with M&S to test out their Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcake Recipe. I had never tried gluten free cupcakes before so was a little sceptical as to how they would taste in comparison to regular gluten cupcakes, but in all honesty there was no difference in taste. These were totally delicious! They were a little denser in texture but were really chocolaty and very decadent and the frosting was so so good! Mine looks a lot thicker than the one in their picture, it was a really tasty chocolate buttercream. Continue reading

A Long Weekend in Harvest House, Pixley
by

Harvest House Ledbury A few weekends ago I spent a relaxed 4 days with 6 other lovely ladies in this amazing holiday let, just outside Ledbury, to celebrate Sam’s 40th Birthday. Harvest House is a North American Style Log Cabin Lodge that was imported all the way from New Hampshire. It sleeps up to 8 people (in 3 bedrooms) and can be found via the Hoseasons website. Surrounded by organic fruit fields, the location and the views are beautiful! But we weren’t completely isolated as the awesome Deli-Cafe The Nest was at the top of the drive and the local pub, The Trumpet was 15 minutes walk away. Continue reading

5 Great Modern Bedside Table Lamps
by

modern bedside table lamps

Ive been searching for the perfect modern bedside table lamps since we moved in. I kinda knew the styles I liked, but I wasn’t managing to find any (at least not at a decent price) that were quite right. We have a fairly minimalist approach to our home, lots of white, grey and wood, its quite a clean look, so I knew we needed lamps that would fit with that look. Our bedroom colour scheme is grey, white and teal, but I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to find teal lamps that worked (unless I could get the right teal on a lamp shade). The other thing to consider was the fact that we really like industrial looking modern bedside table lamps, so things like mason jars, Edison bulbs, copper piping, vintage desk lamps and tripod bases.

Forever Living Sonya Volume Shampoo and Conditioner

Here is another two of the Forever Living products I have been testing out from the awesome hamper I got to borrow from my friend and local rep Laura. She is a big fan of the Forever Living Sonya Volume Shampoo and Conditioner range so suggested I give it a whirl. This is a 50/50 review as I loved one product but sadly my hair hated the other.

Beauty Week – Forever Living Forever Bright Aloe Vera Toothgel
by

Forever Living Forever Bright Aloe Vera Toothgel

When I spotted the results from the Forever Living Forever Bright Aloe Vera Toothgel on my friend Laura’s Facebook Page I thought it was worth a shot. I’m actually not a huge fan of strong mint tasting tooth paste and I have quite weak teeth so don’t like to use any product that are highly abrasive to my tooth enamel, so the fact that this toothgel is mainly made of natural products was a big plus point for me.
