This is my first post in long long time! Unfortunately I just ran out of time with two toddlers to look after plus working as well. I still love to cook and hopefully I will be back soon with some more recipes.
So what else have I been doing?? As you may know I’m bit of a beauty addict and makeup junkie. I was an Avon Lady for a long time until I discovered Younique last year. It’s a Mineral makeup and skincare direct sales company and the products are amazing!! I fell in love with them and haven’t looked back.
Their best selling product is the 3D Fiber Lash Mascara. It comes with two wands – a transplanting gel and the nylon fibers. Just look at my lashes in the top picture!! If you want long lashes without having to put falsies on then this is it! I absolutely love it! Here is a short ‘how to’ video so you can see for yourself the difference this amazing mascara can make to even the smallest of lashes.
In a bid to cut down on refined sugar (really hard when you love baking so much!!) I came across this recipe for a sugar free jam. It’s very easy to make and it tastes really good too.
With this Chia Jam being sugar free it’s a great plus and alternative to regular jam but the mixed berries are great for you too. They have lots of antioxidants, fibre and vitamin C. And then there’s the Chia Seeds. They are full of Omega-3 fatty acids, fibre and protein. So I reckon this little pot of jam is bit of a Superfood!
I have putting it on my Wholemeal Date Scones and I also put on my plain or natural yoghurt for breakfast in the morning.
It’s nearly that time of year where we get ready to send our kids back to school for another year.
This is my first year sending my daughter off to school. I can’t believe my baby girl is starting Kindergarten. It’s such a big milestone in all our lives. I think we’re all a bit nervous but excited at the same time.
So what am I going to make her for lunch? I’ve been having a look on Pinterest and it seems that a Vegemite sandwich and some fruit doesn’t cut it these days. You can be a lot more creative and healthy these days with insulated lunch boxes and groovy little containers for your yoghurt etc. My daughter’s school even has a fridge in each classroom! There was none of that my day.
Anyway, I have been making lunches for her for preschool last year but I have to get creative now for five days a week of school and they don’t have a canteen either which I think is a bit strange so there’s no choice but to make to healthy homemade lunches. Not such a bad thing at all.
Here’s a few ideas I’ve found which are healthy and easy to make. I don’t think I’m going to have time to get the cookie cutters out and make funny faces and the like. As cute as that is, I’m just not sure it’s feasible.
I love these Pizza Pinwheels from Simple as that Blog. I think I might try these. You can make a batch and freeze them. I like idea of a wrap on this post too. I think my daughter will like them.
I like the idea of these skewers from What Lisa Cooks. Fruit would be good too.
I love these fruit roll ups by Our Best Bites. They look very easy to make.
