Eat to Nourish Dry Skin

It is crucial to fight damage to you skin by eating the right foods to nourish and protect the cells.
 
Eat
 

 
 
1 - Avocado
Avocado is great for Vitamin E, we slather it on our skin but we need to eat it too! Avocado is fully packed with all the good stuff, it helps to keep skin plump and helps protect it against skin damage!
 
2 - Citrus Fruit.
Amazing source of Vitamin C, your body needs this to product structural protein collagen, and keeps you looking youthful.
 
3- Tuna.
Full of selenium perfect for protecting skin cells against free radical damage and preserves collagen fibres to keep your skin line free.
 
AVOID
 
White carbs, we all know they really are not the best thing for you as they are refined and full of simple sugars. The worse thing is they actually fuse the collagen and elastin in your skin so it looses elasticity, causing lines and wrinkles - switch to wholegrain instead!

End of the Summer DIY Party Ideas

Although most of the western world goes on holiday during the latter half of summer, August is still a wonderful time to throw a lovely outdoor party where you can showcase your creativity and culinary skills. From delicious seasonal fruits and veggies to gorgeous flowers, there are an array of summer items you can incorporate in your party’s themes and decorations. In addition to the assortment of DIY party ideas available, there are a number of simple, yet tasty, foods you can easily craft yourself. Here are a few unconventional party themes and decorations that’ll inspire you to throw a cool end of summer bash that your guests are sure to enjoy.

Uncomplicated DIY Decorations



Whether your party is garden themed or centers on something offbeat like pirates, remember to include your theme in your decorations by using your artistic talents to craft creative place settings with the names of your party attendees on place tags and veggies or fruits from your garden used as table centerpieces. Integrate your theme in as many components of your party as possible, including your invitations, foods, and flatware. Don’t forget to encourage your guests to dress to scale or according to your party’s theme.

Delicious DIY Treats



The best thing about hosting a summer party is that you can get away with serving light treats and easy to bake sweets. Include unique recipes along with standard summer party fare like different cheeses and meats or get super creative and concoct your own small dishes. If baking and making desserts is more your thing, you have some tasty options when it comes to cool, summer treats. Keep in mind to keep your refreshments light and bake small bites like cake pops, sweet pretzels with different dipping sauces, and s’mores drizzled in caramel and chocolate sauce. Don’t forget to mix in elements of summer in your foods and beverages with summer goodie like shot-glass parfaits and homemade gelato and ice cream. Overwhelmed by all your options? Go with a dessert buffet, which is becoming a staple at weddings, so you showcase your baking talents and give your guests an assortment of dessert options. Be sure to pick up wines and any other party snacks that complement your theme and foods at your local M&S.

Fresh DIY Cocktails



For those of us who reside in the UK, there are a number of fruits and veggies in bloom to choose from during the summer season. This host of summer berries and fruits make for excellent goodies that can be tossed in your juicer to make delicious cocktails and other beverages for your summer get-together. From succulent mangos to sweet fruits like cherries or blueberries, there is a myriad of summer fruits that can be mixed together to make juice-infused beverages for any party. If you’re new to juicing, start with something simple and uncomplicated such as a mix berry juice recipe that integrates boysenberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. Don’t just stick to the classic, mixed fruit cocktail—craft your own summer-influenced fruit drinks.

Enjoy Summer

Marmite Love it? Hate it?

Ok so if you have not already set your eyes on this marmite commercial which is sweeping the nation and causing a little bit of a stire here it is (worth a watch)


 
it did make me giggle a little bit I wont lie! im pretty sure I have a jar hiding away in my kitchen somewhere!
 
I have included a snippet from the press release around this little advert
 
1.4 MILLION* BRITS ARE HOARDING FOODS OVER 10 YEARS OLD
  • ...and almost seven million confess they NEVER clear out their kitchen cupboards
  • 15% admit they serve meals to guests made from out-of-date ingredients
  • Research prompts the launch of ‘End Marmite Neglect’, a campaign to raise awareness of Brits’ kitchen cupboard crimes
I must admit im not that bad I had a good clear out before I moved last year so pretty sure most of my bits are actually in date (runs to kitchen to check)
 
So love it or hate it? don't forget Marmite !!
 
 
Love Aimee

Pretty glitter toes

So I'm all for a bit of DIY and today I made my own glitter polish, and I'm in love it's cheap and easy to do. 

All you need is an old makeup brush. Clear polish and some glitter. 


Simply paint a base cote on your nails then dab the brush in the glitter and dab on wet clear polish. 

Might require a couple of coats. But it's super effective and lasts too. 

Finish off with 2 clear coats of polish to seal the glitter and voila. At home disco nails 

 I brought the glitter for another project. But it worked perfectly and was from eBay for £1.99 delivered for that massive bag ! 

Well worth it and now I have pretty toes.
