2nd Love Lula Beauty Box 

Hello again, the 2nd beauty box was just as good it came with 5 items and I have to say I think this Maggie Anne nail varnish is my most favourite nail varnish ever!! I absolutely love the nude colour and it has a bit if a gel effect. It lasts maximum without chipping for 3 days which is the only down side but other than that it’s still really good. I haven’t had the chance to use any of the others yet but I know I’ll like them especially the Madara Micellar Water which is supposed to be really good for removing makeup.

  • Micellar Water £14* 100ml

  • Botanical Bodywash £8.50* 100ml

  • Skin Food £10.95* 10ml

  • Natural Marula Replenishing Face Oil £9.50* 15ml

    Turmeric Face Mask

    Hello again ☺ I’m not 100% sure if I’ve posted a turmeric face mask recipe before I just thought it is so relevant now that the weather is getting warmer. Nobody wants dull, lifeless looking skin and this face mask will give you the opposite: bright, glowing skin!! I know it is traditional for many cultures and it’s one of my favourites because it is homemade and the ingredients are so easy to purchase.

    Ingredients 
    1 tbsp turmeric
    1 tsp plain flour
    1/3 tsp bicarbonate soda
    2 tbsp lemon juice or water

    So you literally mix all the ingredients together into a bowl. Should be a nice, smooth, runny consistency. Use a small brush to apply it to your face and leave to dry. After about 15-20 minutes wash off with warm water, pat dry and then rub oil over your face.

    1st Love Lula Beauty Box

    I’ve always wanted to subscribe to a beauty box and of course I wanted it to be organic. I was super happy when I found Love Lula check them out here: https://www.lovelula.com 

    Love Lula sell a range of items on their website from shampoo, makeup to body products there’s so much to choose from. The subscription box I chose was for 3 months and cost £37.50 which I thought was a little expensive at first but the products I received were definitely worth it. The box came around the 2nd week of the month and I was so excited to see what I got. I was quite pleased that there was no makeup in there even though it is a beauty box beauty is much more than just makeup also I don’t really wear that much. 

    There was between 4-5 products in each box, some were full sized and most were sample sized but not too small. Each box came with a discount code off the products in the box. So I’ve tried to find the prices of each product too if you want to see roughly how much the box equates to.

    Here goes my first Love Lula beauty box…

      Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese

      Hi guys, the last time I tried to make a red velvet cake I was not as successful but these cupcakes are fantastic. When ever decorating with a sweet top I try to make sure the actual cake mixture is not too sweet so when you bite into the cupcake there’s a subtle sweetness from the cream cheese. 

      I even used matching red cupcake cases

      On top I’ve added some sugar coloured crystals which looked great in the pictures.

      Why Music is So Awesome 🎶 

      Hello everybody, I’m going to tell you why music is good with these scientifically proven reasons…

      • Music sets off those positive feelings in your body.
      • Emotional music can be helpful when times are difficult. Why not make a sad playlist?
      • Music builds connections with friends especially when you like the same genre. 
      • Music can help to reduce your anxiety, your body allows you to build a connection with the song when you listen to the words. 
      • Music is AWESOME, you can literally listen to it at any time of the day loud or quiet and the best thing is to get your hair brush and dance 💃 💃

      Be mindful with food 🍴

      Hello everyone, here are some tips to help you make better food choices.

      1. Keep a food diary and make a note of everything you eat. This is a great idea because it allows you to go back and see why you ate certain foods and particular times in Life. Were you emotionally eating?

      2. Do food swaps, for example switch the chocolate bar for some peanuts or replace the packet of crisps for popcorn and slowly incorporate more fruits into your day. 

      3. Be you eat a snack do something else, drink a cup of water… Are you still hungry? Also try reading, going for a walk or listening to music to distract the mind. 

      Always ask yourself (especially when snacking) ‘am I hungry?’ The main aim is always to be mindful before eating and making sure you actually enjoy the food rather than just biting and chewing 👍

      World Health Day! 😐

      It’s today, 7th April 2017. Sponsored by World Health Organisation (WHO) every year they celebrate a global health awareness. I think it can be a taboo subject because not many people want to discuss these topics or maybe they don’t know how to… Either way I think it is very important to raise awareness. 

      The theme this year is depression, which is the leading cause of ill health and disability across the world, at worst can lead to suicide.

      Share this with a friend and try to raise awareness also if you ever feel like you have mental health issues (depression) please speak to someone because it will make a difference.

      Gluten Free Avocado Brownies 

      Hey everyone 😀 hope your week has been good!! I’ve been back in the kitchen baking again trying new things. This is actually my first time baking with avocado and this recipe turned out great but they were really creamy in texture from the avocados, maybe next time I’ll add more flour. 

      Makes 20 small squares 

      Ingredients 

      100g dark chocolate
      2 eggs, at room temperature
      60g caster sugar
      20g cocoa powder
      25g grounds almonds/ walnuts
      1 tsp vanilla extract
      1 avocado, mashed

      Method
      1. Preheat the oven to 180°c and line a small baking tray with parchment paper.

      2. Break the chocolate into blocks and put into a heat proof bowl placed above simmering water (bain-marie).

      3. In a separate bowl whisking together the sugar and eggs until light and fluffy, you can also use an electric mixer here.

      4. Mix the cocoa, walnuts, vanilla extract and avocado into the melted chocolate and stir well. Pour this into the eggs mixture whisking until a smooth consistency.

      5. Carefully pour the mixture into the prepared tray and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

      6. Leave to cool down completely before cutting into even squares.

      Holy Shift! 

      So today I have a quote from the book ‘Holy Shift’ it’s one of those meditation books that have a quote for you to read every day. I haven’t read it in a while but I looked through the other day and saw this quote:

      When your peace is threatened or disturbed in any way, say to yourself:

      I do not know what anything, including this, means. And so I do not know how to respond to it.  And I will not use my own past learning as the light to guide me now.

      By this refusal to attempt to teach yourself what you do not know,  mother Guide Whom God has given you will speak to you.

      He will take His rightful place in your awareness the instant you abandon it, and offer it to Him. 

      I really love the words used in this paragraph and also the meaning is quite beautiful as a way to live my life ♥ ♥
