Last year I was told I was intolerant to gluten, after starting Atkins to get my body used to no carbs I started to look for recipes online that I could try.
And then I found Deliciously Ella, who focuses on dishes that were plant based, dairy, sugar, meat and gluten free due to a rare illness that she controls through diet.
Over this year I have made the sweet potato, lentil and coconut curry which went down a treat and was very easy to make. The aubergine, sun- dried tomato and pine nut salad is a great quick lunch that I made the day I got her book, and have tried since her quinoa tabouleh which is a great summer salad. As I cannot have chips anymore her celeriac fries are a great substitute that I have made multiple times as well as the cinnamon and paprika sweet potato wedges.
Recently I made her strawberry and coconut cream tarts which I love and will make the pastry again but as cookies. As I am such a chocoholic I will be making many of Ella’s brownie recipes and her triple layered chocolate cake with thick frosting and raspberries. As I have just found some blackberries I will be making the blackberry, apple and maple crumble which looks amazing.
Bye for now
As the month has come to an end I started to think about what I have been loving this month.
Archery brow pencil soap and glory
I have finally given this a go as my HD brow powder is almost finished. I ended up getting the lighter colour as the dark brown was sold out like always. After experimenting with the pencil I have finally a product that I would repeat purchase. The texture of the pencil is perfect and lasts all day as it is slightly waxy.
Sons of Anarchy
I was recommended this series and have really gotten into it recently and am on series five after two weeks. The show is about a motorbike club like the Hells Angels and what happens to them as they are illegally selling guns. I have also got my dad hooked and he has nearly finished series one, if you are looking for a series with some grit that is similar to The Sopranos I would recommend this.
Rimmel Scandaleyes waterproof khol eyeliner in nude
I have been hearing everyone talking about wearing a nude eyeliner to help reduce the look of fatigue. After looking everywhere and not wanting to break the bank as I am on a budget I found this eyeliner which has the nicest pigment , stay power and best of all it blends so well. Unless another eyeliner like this comes out I will be repurchasing this again.
As it was my birthday on Monday I was looking to treat myself to something and found that my local Topshop had added new items to their sale. After looking for ages I found the cutest black and white patterned cullottes that were the only ones left in my size. Trying them on felt like I was wearing pyjamas they were so comfy and they would go with so many tops I already owned double bonus. As soon as I got them I went to H&M to get a black and white stripped top that would be perfect for a pattern clash with the culottes.
Bye for now
