Everyday Makeup Routine

It's officially summer, and even though it might not necessarily feel like it here in England, it is the perfect time to rejuvenate your makeup routine. Put away the heavy foundations and adopt lightweight, glow-inducing products. I've collated my current favourites which I use to create a natural look that I wear virtually everyday.

It takes minimal time to apply and with the right preparation can last all day long. This is ideal for someone like me who has long suffered with highly oily skin. After all, who wants mascara running down their cheeks and sliding, patchy foundation?


Banana and Nutella Extravaganza

I thought I would kick-start this blog with a recipe post; a banana and Nutella celebration cake I knocked together for my brother's birthday recently.

I know what you're all thinking - how calorific?!
Admittedly, this cake isn't the equivalent of a salad but remember that when it comes to cake, calories don't count (or at least this is what I tell myself)! Enjoyed as an occasional treat, this recipe combines  number of my favourite ingredients: banana, hazelnuts and of course the infamous Nutella.
