The Body Coach’s Chocolate Orange Popcorn Bars | Recipes

This is another recipe from The Body Coach, specially his fat loss cookbook. I thought this would have a crunchy consistency, but it was actually quite soft having mixed the popcorn in with the melted chocolate.

Even so, I really enjoyed it so I thought I would share with you guys, too!

June Birchbox

June Birchbox

This June Birchbox is five years old, and so released a lovely box to celebrate that this month. First off, the box itself is gorgeous – Birchbox always seem to pull it out of the bag with their packaging. It’s a tin box, with floral patterns, as you can see. It’s supposed to resemble and old style English biscuit box, which ties in with their extra gift that they gave away this month. I’ll definitely be reusing this!

The free 6th gift that we got this month was a pack of 3 different teas from Whittards. It came in a cute box with similar patterns to the Birchbox tin, and I received 1 Earl Grey, 1 Lemon and Ginger, and 1 Mango and Bergamot. Unfortunately, you won’t see them in any of my pictures as I shared and drank them with my parents as soon as my delivery arrived (oops) and forgot to save the packaging!

I tried the Mango and Bergamot tea and it was delicious, and not too overpowering in flavour!

Crayola Beauty | First Impressions

Crayola Beauty | First Impressions

Crayola Beauty ?

Our beloved craft brand from when we were kids have now brought out a beauty range. I’m still in shock, and so excited! Crayola are collaborating with ASOS, and at first sight I thought that it couldn’t really be Crayola, but it is!

Since I bought my products, they have brought out more – I’d definitely recommend having a nosey on ASOS’s website, even if just out of curiosity. They have eyeshadow palettes, face and lip palettes, highlighters, mascara, make up brushes and face crayons. Yes, crayons! They come looking like your classic Crayola crayon, and if you buy a pack of three, they actually come in the classic Crayola packaging as well.

Re-potting and Planting New Seeds

Re-potting and Planting New Seeds

Recently I was in Flying Tiger and noticed some really cute vases / plant pots, and wanted to have a little collection of plants and herbs by my window, so I bought them, a plant, and some seeds and thought I’d write a blog post about how I like re-potting and planting new seeds.

There were so many cute pots in the shop. I picked up a few coloured pots, and a pink flower vase, too. I also picked up a plain white one in the shape of a camera. They have a few different object shaped vases and pots, and I’m sure I’m going to go back and pick up some more so I can grow my herb collection!

The Body Coach’s Cashew Energy Balls | Recipes

The Body Coach’s Cashew Energy Balls | Recipes

I recently had a bit of a baking frenzy and made a couple of different things (banana bread, these energy balls, and a chocolate popcorn recipe that should be up next week). Two of these are recipes from The Body Coach, specifically his fat loss cookbook. I’ve always want to try energy balls as they look so easy to make, and I’m glad I chose The Body Coach’s cashew energy balls!

They have dates and coconut in them, both of which I love! They’re very quick to make and all you need is a food blender, or I used a nutri-bullet and it worked really well.
