I used to buy a Meat-free Roast from Tesco’s that Brains and I would have once in a while but more recently, we haven’t been able to find them anywhere! With that, I decided to make my own and figured I could share it with all of you lovely people. You will need: 4 Quorn fillets or Vegan equivalent 2 pieces of bread Stuffing (e.g sage & onion, garlic & herb, packet or home made) 1/2 teaspoon Parsley 1/2 teaspoon…

February 9, 2014
main-box-featured

The Vegan Kind is a new monthly Vegan lifestyle box. It promises to deliver between 5-8 products each month that are all cruelty free and Vegan – they also donate 10p of each box to the chosen Charity for the month. I knew this box was going to launch some month’s ago, but had forgotten all about it until normal posting resumed on twitter and last month and I was informed by a fellow beauty blogger. Alas I instantly hopped…

February Most Wanted

February 7, 2014

As the first month of the year is already over, I guess it’s time to cast my attention (and purse) towards all of the things I’ve been collecting for my most wanted list now that I can almost justify spending a few pennies here and there.   My first pick of the month is the new Sensual Red Cherry Collection from L’Occitane. I’m a sucker for all things cherry-esque as well as being overly fond of the L’Occitane hand creams,…

I received one of Debenham’s Beauty Box sets this Christmas and was pleasantly surprised at the contents – of which came 8 beautiful nail varnish’s. Now Debenham’s isn’t really the sort of store that I think of when it comes to nail varnish, in terms of it’s own brand stuff, but the colours from this box are absolutely gorgeous! The first two here are my favourite – this is two coats and the pigment’s are just superb. The purple is…

Aussie “Dual Personality” Coloured Hair Protector and Shine Serum

February 3, 2014

I’m a bit of a sucker for hair products – anything to keep my locks in tip top condition considering it’s length and it’s bright red colour. I’m also a bit of a sucker for Aussie and their three minute miracle is a frequent “hair pick me up” go to so when I saw this a few years ago it became one of my favourite hair serum’s ever. This serum helps to protect coloured hair and makes it lovely and…

New Avon perfumes 2014 – “Our Story For Her” and “Femme”

February 2, 2014
Avon Our Story for her and Femme perfume

  Avon seem to have a new perfume launch every campaign at the moment, but these two are my favourite picks of the bunch by a mile! I find that Avon fragrance can be a bit hit and miss, especially with the older scents that seem to all smell very similar to me. The newer lines seem to be vastly improved on the classics though, and if you’re looking for purse friendly fragrance with some personality I think you’d do…
