So I got a Ted Baker makeup kit for Christmas which is 1920’s themed. I was anticipating how well the products would be considering the brand is a clothing one. I was attracted firstly to the lipstick which came in … Continue reading →
Haven’t posted due to Christmas Festivities, I had a lot of fun….and FAR too much alcohol. So in order to start this properly today will start with a lovely green smoothie.
Try this one out 🙂 (and it’s vegan)
1 small head of lettuce, chopped into a couple sections
1 banana, ripe
1 cup blueberries, frozen
1/2 cup mango, frozen
1 tablespoon chai seeds
1 1/2 cup water
SO YUMMY! Great to get out of bed for and this morning I woke nice and early for my day and even went to bed before 4AM (I haven’t been sleeping well lately) and i’m proud of myself for getting around 8 hours of sleep! Hooray! Despite time going to quickly today It’s kind of a good thing as i’m seeing a friend in London which should be good.
So I bought all my ingredients to make said recipes in previous post only to find that I didn’t have time as I was busy with my Grandma and Gramps arrival and also present wrapping. Even though a little late I will still be cooking up the little filo mincemeat treats which will be made on Boxing day…..finally! I’m looking forward to the festivities and food (and alcohol!) and obviously the cliched line ‘spending time with the family’ can’t wait to see everyone though and give my gifts. I upped my game with the wrapping this year and decorated the parcels with lovely ribbons and butterflies which I got from an old necklace and securely glued them to some presents. They look so cute.
I’m at my other nans now currently and the tree as ever is amazingly done and pretty, also she has some really adorable decorations around the house and the traditional ‘Stop here Santa’ sign out the front of the house. All my dads side are coming over tomorrow evening for a Cheese and Wine night for Christmas eve, it’s a family tradition to all get together the night before.
I hope everyone has a lovely day, may your stomachs be full with food and your soul filled with happiness.
With four days approaching it would only be right for me to post some Christmas recipes, tomorrow I shall be baking my low fat version of the Christmas pie and creating some apple cup which are both ideal for a snack or a post Christmas dinner dessert- that’s if you’re stomach hasn’t grown 47x bigger than before.
This year I can’t wait for all the fresh veggies we bought today at the farm market to be roasted and ready for eating, also I think i’m having a qourn ‘chicken’ style roast or a nut one, either or and i’m happy. It’s really nice having a family of meat eaters who actually respect me being a vegetarian- and I get to avoid the duck fat engrossed potatoes (the thought of it makes me feel a bit queasy!).
I always wonder what off veggies have for their roast dinner? Comment below! Can’t wait to share my recipes with you. XO
