Monday Mix and Match

Happy Monday Tuesday everyone! Slightly late with this week’s favourites but what with the Easter weekend and the gloriously sunny bank holiday Monday, this is technically the first day of the week, isn’t it? Excuses aside, I hope everyone had a lovely, relaxing and chocolate filled weekend – I know I certainly stuffed myself to bursting with eggs (a fact I was majorly paying for at boot camp this evening…#shweatin)

This week, my favourites include an affordable skincare update, a healthy midweek dinner recipe and even a snazzy outfit change for my phone! I hope you enjoy!


Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water for Combination and Sensitive Skin

Micellar waters are, without doubt, thee trendiest way to clean your face at the moment.

Recipe: Spicy Chilli, Fajita Bowl and Easy Homemade Guacamole

I’m a traitor to my Irish heritage – I’m not a fan of hearty stews or coddle, and don’t even talk to me about potatoes and cabbage! My foodie heart lies further afield – in Italy, Asia and of course, Mexico! Thus, this tasty chilli, my mam’s specialty I might add, is now a staple dinner in my own home and recently I decided to mix it up by serving in this fajita bowl with a little of my favourite accompaniment, homemade guacamole. this so simple to make and always something to look forward to. The bonus is it’s a one pot recipe and easily adjustable to your taste. You can add more or less spice to suit yourself, load it up with your choice of veggies and it goes just as well with some rice or quinoa! This is also perfect to make in bulk to freeze or reheat the next evening for round two (is there any better feeling than coming home to a pre-made dinner?). So here is my recipe for this tasty midweek dinner..
