THE COMFORTER - LUSH

  
Hey Beauties!

Back with yet another Lush Review, I've been haulin' recently so I've got a few posts in the bank ready to be rolled out! This time, we have The Comforter, Previous to this I'd always pick it up, smell it and love it but the price put me off at over £5 per bar, I thought it was a little bit expensive for a one time bubble bath. 

This particular bubble bar is pretty huge, one of these fits into my whole hand but I've discovered you can break this up and depending on how bubbly and fragrant you like your bath, you can split it into 2-4 parts. So price wise it's actually probably cheaper then the rest of the lush bubble bars you can only get or 1-2 out of! 

The smell I mentioned before is amazing and for some reason I can't put my finger on what it reminds me of. The cassis helps this smell really berry scented and the lemon lightly uplifts it. It really is wonderful and as I'm typing this I just thought, its a little bit like Ribena!? Maybe that's it. 

This also give the most gorgeous, soft and absolutely tons of bubbles which I adore! Crumbled into the bath it makes the water turn a gorgeous pink colour. This is one of the bubble bars that the smell really gets out and fills up the room too. I love that. It also does a good job of making the skin feel fresh and clean but not very moisturized. This one is perfect for a girly pamper night.

PEACHY KEEN - The body shop Vineyard Peach Duo


The Body Shop have been winning me over recently with all the new releases, new packaging and not to mention the Forever Against Animal Testing campaign, you can sign the petition HERE. However, there will always be a few firm favourites that I will always re-buy. 

This snazzy little duo happen to be quite an obsession of mine that started about 3-4 years ago when the Vineyard Peach scent was first released. If your a fan of a gorgeous sweet fruity, slightly floral but not sickly scent you will adore this. The scent reminds me of fizzy peach sweets and stays on your skin for such a long time. 


I find the shower gel and gel lotion very similar in scent strength. The Shower gel, like most of the body shops' lather up incredibly, lots of thick luxurious bubbles that don't disappear instantly like some. I also find my skin feels so soft after showering when using this which is rare(dry skin!) and a little bit goes an extremely long way. 


This is the first time I've actually brought this duo since they've changed the packaging and also the type of body lotion this is, described on the front as a 'body lotion gel' which in all honestly I can see. I remember it being slightly more watery before but in the above photo you can see it's definitely more dense and gel like. It absorbs super fast and leaves no traces behind. 

I honestly love smelling like a juicy peach and this pair really do not disappoint, not only do they smell amazing but they do their jobs without fault! You can buy the shower gel HERE and the Body lotion gel HERE and if you buy it now while it's in the sale it's only £8 for both!

HEALTHY GLUTEN FREE TOMATO & RED PEPPER PASTA


Hello Guys!

Do you ever find yourself doing something and thinking 'I wonder if anyone else on this planet does this too, because if they don't they definitely should...' this is one of those things. Even someone who is completely inept when it comes to cooking(aka me.) can do this.

I'm not much of a cook but as you guys know I do share my very simple and very easy recipes here on my little blog. This however is probably the easiest of them all, perfect for a quick dinner, in the summer and winter and its also 100% Gluten free! My Tomato & Red pepper pasta!

 I think the best thing about this little recipe is just how easy it is to throw together. Most off the essentials here will be in your cupboards anyway all you need fresh is the two tomatoes and the red pepper. This recipe actually makes enough for two portions but feel free to double/triple whatever you like to cater to more people!

- First things first, whack your tomatoes, peppers and two/three tablespoons of tomato puree in a blender and blend to your desired consistency. I like mine to be pretty smooth so I keep it going for a while however if you like it chunky just pulse it a few times.


-  This is my favorite part I add it all into a pan on a medium heat and start adding in the additional flavours, for this one I added garlic, paprika, onion and a whole heap of basil but you can pretty much add what you like and to really take it up another notch use all fresh ingredients! I then cook this for about 20-25 minutes the sauce will thicken up and get richer in colour

- Around this time I started to cook the pasta, if your not gluten free like me then use whatever pasta you like however if you are, I highly recommend this one I have from ASDA. Cook for the required amount of time but, if you're like me and like it a little softer cook it for an extra 5-7mins.


- Combine! I like to then place it back on the heat for a couple of minutes just to get everything to the same temperature.


- This is totally optional but I love to add a sprinkle of Engevita for a cheesy taste without cheese, this is also great for people on a plant based diet as it's made with B12. However if you wanna put some cheese on it go for it, I'd recommend mozzarella! Delish!


So there it is, simple & so easy without a bad ingredient in sight. Food like this makes my heart happy, gluten free to keep my tum happy but still comforting and filling enough to keep me sustained for a few hours.

Hope you enjoyed, if you make this recipe don't forget to send me pics!
