Pasta is one of my favourite foods of all time and the perfect carb based dinner for the colder months. I’m no chef, but since I stopped eating beef earlier this year, I’ve been experimenting more with different pasta. Spaghetti carbonara, chicken and pesto penne, creamy tagliatelle.. the list goes on. Today I thought I’d share how I make a quick and easy midweek meal of Spaghetti Carbonara.
Norfolk Restaurant Week is a dining event here in Norfolk. Plenty of great Norfolk restaurants take part, offering discounted two-course and three-course weekday meals. As the deals only run on weekdays for two weeks, this year is the first that we’ve actually made it to any of the participating restaurants. We firstly headed to The Rose & Crown in Snettisham and then to Congham Hall the next evening.
It’s that time of year when skin needs a little extra TLC. It could be as simple as using moisturising products more often, equally it could prompt you to reassess your beauty routine and the products that feature. With winter fast approaching, I’ve been taking care of my skin the easy way, by getting in a little extra beauty sleep. With the help of Penguin Sleep Tales and Dermalogica’s incredible new product; Sound Sleep Cocoon, it’s been a doddle.
French beauty brand, Nuxe, is celebrating 25 years of Rêve de Miel. As someone who is frequently impressed by Nuxe as a brand and who also happens to love honey, I felt that now was a fitting time to introduce this particular line of honey skincare.
Huda’s Mauve Obsessions palette has maintained cult status ever since it launched. I got mine just over a year ago as part of the Cult Beauty 10th birthday goodie bag and it has remained a staple for evening looks in my collection to this day.
I’ve moaned about it plenty myself, but I sometimes feel a little bad for Instagram. I know, I know, the ALGORITHM, but hear me out. For all its flaws, the positive implications it has on our lives is largely overshadowed by, well, everything else. From the comparison game to rude comments or poor engagement, it takes the brunt of our irritation even though it’s certainly not solely responsible.
The two months since my last empties post passed quicker than you can say ‘goodbye summer’. As such, reluctantly, I’ve accepted that it’s now Autumn. It isn’t that I don’t love the idealistic associations we have with the season of crunchy leaves and pumpkin spice, it’s that I really, really dislike its soggy, cold, and gloomy alter-ego. Let’s just say that I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we experience more of the former this season.
