How to make a bauble wreath

While in a Pinterest black hole one evening, franticly adding pins to my many Christmas boards, I came across homemade wreaths, and bauble wreaths really grabbed my attention, they look so striking yet are such a simple idea, and fairly easy to assemble.

Easy fluffy vegan pancakes

I LOVE PANCAKES, but since going dairy free, there has been a fluffy pancake hole in my life, that is until now. I have discovered a recipe that creates the fluffiest pancakes myself and my husband had ever had, and guess what they are easy to make, with store cupboard ingredients, NO need to go to the supermarket to search out some weird and frankly expensive ingredients.

So if that sounds up your street, stick around......................

Things To Think About Before A Home Expansion

Home improvement is something on a lot of people’s wish lists, including mine, ( I have just recently redecorated my living room) and a lot of the time we like to kick back and relax with a good daydream about how our homes will look with a new layout, or the space knocking out that wall in the living room will give you, or how sleek and shiny the bathroom will look with the new tiles. But before you get on with any of these plans, you’re going to have to take a few principles into consideration.

Home expansions can have a huge impact on your lifestyle, as well as the lifestyle of other people and creatures around you. (something I think we are all becoming more conscience of) So you need to be sure what you’re doing is healthy and safe, and that you’ve got the right permission to go ahead with it. So here’s a couple of things to think about.

Living with ME

Living with ME

MEMyalgic Encephalomyelitis, or CFSChronic fatigue syndrome is a chronic illness and like many chronic illnesses, not much is known about the exact cause, why the symptoms and severity differ so greatly. In fact in my experience often even so called medical professionals are not sure what it is, and how to treat it. I had a pharmacist only last week, say to me in a confused tone, "oh that's the fatigue thing isn't it" reassuring it is not.

My perfect Autumn makeup products

I think we are all guilty of this, once the nights start drawing in and the weather gets colder, we put away all our summer pinky, peach makeup and whack out the moodier, darker rusts, browns, purple and gold shades, it's like a timer goes off in our brains and we have to completely change how we have been doing our makeup for the last few months, and raid our beauty stash, it somehow makes the change to dreary weather more bearable.

So here is what I've found from the depths of my makeup collection and am embracing with all guns blazing this Autumn.
