Hello lovelies. Welcome back to another baking post. As it was Rob's birthday recently, he requested a carrot cake for his birthday buffet as it's his favourite and he never can eat a shop bought or cafe made cake as he has a super severe nut allergy. I've made him one a few times however this time I altered my usual recipe (shock) and it tasted bloody fantastic if I do say so myself. With a mix of spices and some super sweetness, this cake is a delight to have at a birthday, tea party or just a casual weekend cuppa and cake get together with close ones. Obviously, feel free to add the traditional walnuts to top the cake off, however this recipe uses a totally nut free recipe. Happy baking my loves. 

Ingredients for sponge
250g carrots finely grated 150mls vegetable oil 3 large free range eggs 230g self raising flour 230g light brown sugar or golden caster sugar 100g caster sugar  1 tbsp golden syrup 1 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp ginger 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnammon 1/2 tsp mixed spice

Acne do's & do not's

Hello lovely people, I hope your well. Today, I thought I would share a few things I have learnt along my acne fighting journey for the past 10+ years as personally, there is so much crap posted about how to 'cure' acne which is never a 'cure'. Banishing acne is something I have never done, but for those who have acne, will understand when I say acne doesn't just disappear over a few days or weeks. It is a long drawn out process which I have found some little hints and tips which can help on this journey to clear or clearer skin. Now, I'm not saying that you MUST do this in order to take control of your acne, everyone's skin is totally different. Some of these things haven't worked for others, just as some of their do's and do not's haven't worked for me. Everyone's skin reacts different to different methods or products. This post is to simply help those who are new to their acne diagnosis or who have had acne for a while, but are stuck …

Songs I'm currently loving (Feb 2018)

Hello, and welcome back. So, feb's playlist of my favourite songs this month is a wee bit late. However, better late than never am I right? Last month was a great month for music as we watched The Greatest Showman in cinemas (I seen it twice it was that amazing), I have none stopped listened to the soundtrack. Even nearly a month later, I can't help but listen to the soundtrack at least once a day. We also had Valentines Days where as a gift, me and Rob bought each other a vinyl each. I can't wait to listen to my new P!nk vinyl as I love her newest album which I have been listening to through Spotify quite a bit. Theres just something lovely about listening to a vinyl. What have you been listening to lately? :)

P!NK ~ Barbies

The Greatest Showman ~ This is me

Paloma Faith ~ Warrior

Royal Blood ~ Lights out

Red hot chilli peppers ~ Can't stop
