Healthy Granola Recipe! 


Hello lovelies!

Here in England the sun is finally out! So this is definitely encouraging me to eat more healthy before all the shorts come out! 

I somehow whipped this granola up yesterday by mixing a few recipes and using what I could find. I’m sick of breakfast cereals being absolutely packed of sugar, and instead of cakes heavy snacks this is perfect for quick on the go munching. Eat with milk, yogurt on its own!

Ingredients:

Oats

Any oil you can find, I used rapeseed but coconut would taste better 

Cinnamon 

Honey

Sunflower seeds

Pumpkin seeds

Vanilla essence

I didn’t measure anything I just kinda winged it. Mix everything in a big bowl, it shouldn’t stick together but should be slightly wet.


Then spread the mixture thinly on foil or baking paper and pop in the oven on around 180 degrees for ten minutes.

Then leave to cool and pop in a sealable container!


Easy!

Let me know any other easy recipes!

My summer ball outfit and makeup! 

I’ve had such a busy two weeks! Last ever exam, finishing uni, summer ball and I’ve got a job before I even arrived back home! But between the stress the partying made it worth while!

So for my end of uni ball I needed to make slightly more effort than a usual night out in my shorts and converse. Instead of a dress I went for a jumpsuit. I bought this last year for a cruise I went on so I was dying to wear it again. It was only £7! From h&m in the sale, so obviously won’t be available now but moral of the story: keep your eyes on sale rails! You don’t need to break the bank for a fancy outfit! 

The original outfit had a much higher neckline but to add a little something I altered it slightly to have a much lower plunge. This is totally out of my comfort zone, especially as I have nothing in that department to show off! But I like to think it looked classy!

I added minimal jewellery and my highest black chunky heels. Then I decided to curl my hair with a thin wand and add a ton of hairspray. 

For makeup I’d bought mac’s creme de nude, so I was desperate to wear that with a dark eye. I did a kind of cut crease with some Mac gold glitter, and some huge lashes. Hard to see in the picture but I thought it added some drama to the look.

So that’s it! Danced in to the early hours and now I’m putting my feet up for a well deserved rest!

Add me!

Making big life decisions… 

If there’s one thing I’m bad at it’s making a decision. Where to go for dinner. What to wear out. What lipstick to choose. Obviously not the most vital of life choices. 

But now I’m at that big age in life where shit is getting very real. A week on Tuesday I finish my 4 years at uni. I have to move back home and become an adult. Complete with job and a whole new grown up life outlook… hopefully!

So now instead of having my path already carved out for me I have to decide what I want to do with my life. Where do I want to live? What do I want to do? Do I want to stay with my boyfriend?

It’s literally terrifying me. Because what if I make the wrong decision and mess everything up? 

But I think that some decisions you already know the answer. It’s just admitting it to yourself that’s the issue.
