Vegan Mince Pies

Hello everybody! 

First of all, I'm sorry for not having posted in quite a while- sixth form has been completely hectic lately, but thankfully the Christmas holidays are around the corner, so I'm really hoping I can get back into the swing of things and get blogging again! 
I've got a festive baking recipe for you today, although I'm really not sure I can call it a recipe (we pretty much cut every corner possible with our baking)! but I thought I'd show you how they came out anyway, at least to get you in the Christmas spirit if you're not already!

Our first cheat was using the Jus Roll shortcrust pastry, which is completely vegan (yay for not having to make your own pastry!) and also using shop bought mincemeat- making this the easiest recipe for mince pies ever, So all you really need to do is roll out your pastry, make 12 or so cases, fill them about half full with the mincemeat and cut out toppings for each one. And that's it! As you can see, we got quite creative with the toppings-  and ended up doing some christmas trees, hearts and one pathetic attempt at an angel! 

Thanks for reading, I hope you all have a good week! :)

My Everyday Makeup

Hello everybody!

Before I get started, yes- the unthinkable has happened, I have said goodbye to by long hair, finally! I've been meaning to go for the chop for a while and I am so glad I did- I'm thoroughly enjoying the convenience of shorter hair and the lack of split ends! Anyway, I haven't done a make-up post on my blog for ages so I thought today I'd share with you the make-up I like to do on an everyday basis this time of year. It takes me 10-15 minutes to do, providing there aren't any eyeliner disasters, so not long at all which makes it perfect for most occasions! 

 For my base
 -Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream
-Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
-Rimmel Clear Complexion Powder
-Sleek Blush in pomegranate

For my eyes
 -L'Oreal Superliner 
-Sephora Long Lasting eye kohl pencil
-Rimmel Wonder'full mascara

For my lips
-Rimmel Kate Moss lipstick in 107

I hope you all like the make-up look! I do like to change up the lipstick depending on what I'm up to that day- the Rimmel Lipstick in 107 is quite dramatic, so I do often swap it for a tinted lipbalm or something more subtle, What's your favourite make-up product for the colder months? :)

Berries & Fallen Leaves

 I realised the other day that the last proper photography post I did here on my blog was in July (!!) and now that Autumn is well and truly upon us in the UK, it was about time I went out with my camera, in my parka and wellies, and captured some of the beautiful autumnal colours. As much as us Brits complain about the weather, I must say that I personally start to feel very grateful come Autumn time- as it starts to get colder and acceptable to throw on huge furry coats! I hope wherever you live you're enjoying Autumn and if you're on half term, you're having a good holiday!
