Recipe- Chocolate covered pomegranate cubes

Hiya everyone! I hope your all having a good week!

Since January I've shaken up my diet and excerise programme and I'm loving the results and transformation! (A post about all this will be up soon!) 

So since I've started eating more sensibly I've absolutely loved playing about with foods and recipes and mixing things up abit and I came up with a simple snack of you've got a bit of a sweet tooth like me! 

Hope you enjoy!

RECIPE

ingredients include:

- 85% cocoa chocolate 
- pomegranate seeds
- 2 bowls, one smaller than the other
- ice cube tray

How to make:

- take your 85% chocolate, (the higher percentage of cocoa the healthier it is for you) break into small pieces and place in smaller bowl.



- fill up the larger bowl with boiling water and place the chocolate bowl onto of the water, letting the chocolate melt slowly.




- while the chocolate is melting, place a few pomegranate seeds into the ice cube trays and fill up depending on how sweet you want them.






- when the chocolate has melted, pour into the ice cube trays until the pomegranate seeds are covered and place into the fridge until it sets! 



Hope you all enjoy! If you ever try it let me know what you think of it and your adaptations!

MAC Review and Haul

Hi guys! 

Ok so I've been gone a while, but while I've been gone I've had a totally revamp of my blog by the lovely Amy! (Check out her blog and amazing designs here!)
So while my blog has been changed and looks totally fresh now I took the chance to visit MAC, I mean why wouldn't I! I didn't really go for anything specific but I ended up with a lipstick and a gloss! I've been looking for a few nude/brown shade of lipstick for a while and I did find a few but I've found the holy grail of browns and I'm in LOVE! 



Matt lipstick-Velvet Teddy




I brought this lipstick not really knowing much about MAC lipsticks so I thought I would start out with something not too daring so decided to start with 'velvet teddy'. It's a Matt nude/brown shade which I've been looking at for a while and decided it was time to buy- and I'm so glad I did! I've been obsessed with this lipstick since the day I took it home! It's perfect for everyday use you can put it on with any makeup look and great for topping up throughout the day! It's a gorgeous texture on your lips, glides on and lasts for about an hour and a half even while I'm busy at work! 
If anyone's looking for a perfect nude lipstick then you have to try velvet teddy!




Lustregloss- Morning glory






Im not going to lie, I brought this lipstick just on impluse, not really thinking much about it, I saw the pink shade and thought it was super pretty so I brought it! I didn't really like much of it but when I put it on I fell in love! It's a lovely subtle shade that gives a lasting impression and I got compliments on it throughout the day! If your looking for something pretty for a spring glam then this is it! :)





I'm always looking for new lip products to try so leave a comment and let me know what your favourite is and what you recommend so I can try! Hope you all liked this post!
