#TastyTuesday Mini Egg Easter Cookies

Easter is fast approaching, there are mini eggs and easter eggs everywhere in sight. Mini eggs are my absolute favourite, I need to avoid them in shops so I don't eat them all. However I wanted to do some baking with them. So, me and my boyfriend made some mini egg cookies recently, they are quite hidden in the cookies but still taste amazing. See the recipe below.

Summer Radiance - Makeup Revolution*

I am certainly a Autumn/Winter girl, but summer does bring a happiness over me. I love the bright early mornings, getting a bit of a tan and those days going out to the park or generally anywhere when its a nice day. To get ready for summer as I am naturally pale, I need a little boost with a summer glow. I have used these palettes to help sculpt my face, highlight what needs to be highlighted and gave myself a radiant goddess feel. Who wouldn't want that?

Lazy girls guide to jammie treats with duerrs*

I have made two different quick and easy recipes with this yummy rhubarb and custard jam. It reminds me of those hard boiled sweets we had as a kid, I could go for some of those right now. Writing this post is making me hungry. I have made Jam hearts and Jam Fruit Tarts. Recipes are below. I hope you enjoy and let me know if you make any!

Sunday Summary #3

I've changed the name of my week in pictures to Sunday Summary, think it has a better ring to it. I will try to do it every Sunday, but sometimes they are just boring working. This week was pretty good.

Blogging Tips #2: Staying Motivated

I've been off work the last few days and was really pumped and ready to get loads of posts done and get things scheduled, do you think I did that? No I did not. I hoped I would and normally do, but I spent my days lazing around watching The Simpsons and Family guy and snacking.

I felt re de-motivated and just didn't know why, for the last month or so I have been doing a make over on my blog and getting loads of posts ready. So, I would go to my normal job, go see my boyfriend then spend all evening doing blog work. I love writing for my blog and enjoy it thoroughly but I didn't just let myself re-charge and thats where I was going wrong. So I've let myself relax and just be, now I'm ready to get back into writing my posts and want to share with you some other ways I stay motivated to write.

#tastytuesday Eggy Brekkie

This a simple breakfast or brunch meal, its a very healthy and filling dish full of protein to get you through the morning. If you are in a rush most mornings, don't fret! This only takes about 10 minutes to cook, not even that really.

10 things to do on a Sunday

Sundays are the national lazy day for a lot of people myself included. I now work on some Sundays which, isn't to bad, but I would much rather spend the day in my comfy clothes, relaxing and spending some much needed time with netflix. When I do have them off, I appreciate Sundays much more, I like to have a catch up with the girls, maybe a little pamper or just get some stuff done (on the sofa if I can help it).

Alcohol free wine*

Have you gave up alcohol for lent? Well you can still enjoy the fruity and refreshing wine taste with this Riesling. I gave up caffeine for lent, but I don't drink alcohol so I will go for 'virgin' options if I do fancy one on the odd occasion.

Nail HQ*

Lovely long, perfectly shaped claws. That's what all girls want really. My nails used to be a mess to be honest, I bit them, they were brittle and always snapped whenever they got any length. Nail HQ were kind enough to offer some of their amazing products for my blogger event and they were really popular with the bloggers that attended.
