My 8 minute exercise routine: Buns of Steel

I am writing this blogpost as I watch Diana Moran on Loose Women. The green goddess became hugely popular in the 80s with her exercise segments. At 74, she does look AMAZING! How does she do it?

How to keep your hair looking fabulous!

Ah haircare. That feeling when you have a good hair day is the best feeling ever! I usually go to the hairdresser every two to three months for a good old trim and a fantastic blow-dry.

This easter simnel cake has been adapted from Mary Berry’s recipe! Enjoy!

A cake in a tin by Chacon Cakes!

I was lucky enough to receive a cake in a tin last week from a company called Chacon Cakes, who are based in South West London. All cakes are made in a completely gluten free environment and the company specialises in making beautiful mini cakes, that you can create yourself too. I chose to have a chocolate cake base, with the first filling of vanilla cream and the second filling with chocolate ganache. The topping was white chocolate.
