    Leaving my job: One year on

    They say time flies when you’re having fun. These past 365 days have just disappeared. To the point, I hadn’t even realized a year had already passed. A whole year since I made the craziest, stupidest, biggest and best decision of my life.

     

    Just over a year ago I handed in my notice and walked out of a full-time job into… well into nothing.

    GBBO and white chocolate pretzels

    Happy Tuesday Ssasspots! Hope you’ve all had a lovely bank holiday weekend 🙂

    I know there has been a lot of food related content on the blog recently, but that’s the great thing about being a lifestyle blogger. I’m sharing parts of my everyday life, and if you know me, you know food is a huge part of my life! Another little guilty pleasure of mine is baking, and although I have never allowed myself to get swept up by GBBO (that done by choice btw, I’d be glued to the tv if I did!) I thought I would get you all warmed up with a little treat seeing as the new season starts in an hour!

    3 ingredient Berry Smoothie

    When it comes to smoothie making, I’m not gonna lie I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed. There are MILLIONS of smoothie recipes out there and they are getting more and more complex. Like I don’t have a stash of flax seed just chilling around… Nor do I always have a variety of non-dairy milk kicking about in the fridge and I can pretty much guarantee you that if we buy bananas, they don’t make it to the freezer.

    So, If you’re feeling the same – this post my dears is for you!

    Bakers vs fakers event – Decorating the Ice Dream Cake

    Happy Sunday babes!

    Where has the weekend gone? Although I am not complaining, I’m a sucker for a chilled Sunday snuggled under a blanket binging Netflix! As I am typing this, I am just polishing off the last piece of cake from last weeks event. You might have seen it over on my Instagram, or twitter. I mean it’s kinda difficult to ignore this bad boy – and as a little treat, I have included the recipe at the end of the post – The Ice Dream Cake!

    Charlotte Tilbury bargain

    When it comes to makeup I like to think I have one foot in each camp. I love me some smokey dramatic eyeshadow and some bold lipstick – statement makeup all the way. Then again, I am also a huge fan of natural subtle makeup that enhances a person’s natural beauty. It’s classy, it’s elegant and most importantly it cuts my morning routine in like half. So I wanted to share with you my go to Charlotte Tilbury palette!
