My Must Haves From Charlotte Tilbury (Part 1)

It's no secret that I'm a HUGE Charlotte Tilbury fan. My obsession with her products began around two years ago and since then I've managed to build up a pretty extensive collection. A make-up artist to the stars for over twenty years, Charlotte launched her own line in 2013. With its glamorous rose-gold packaging and luxe ingredients, it's easy to see why it's so popular with celebrities, bloggers and beauty lovers alike. Today I thought I'd share with you a few of my personal favourites from the brand (a list so long it's had to be split into two posts... eek!)

Slow-Cooker Hot Chocolate

Clean eaters, look away now!!

I love my slow cooker. I also love hot chocolate, so when I came across this recipe on Ashlie's blog I knew I had to try it.

I had friends round one night last week and saw it as the perfect opportunity to put this sugar-laden concoction to the test. Needless to say we weren't disappointed! The recipe was perfect - rich, luxurious and bursting with flavour - hands down the best hot chocolate I've ever had.

My Favourite Horror Films

Anyone who knows me will be aware that I'm all for a good horror. There are few things I love more than lighting a couple of candles, curling up on the sofa and watching something that's guaranteed to give me goosebumps. Therefore, with Halloween fast approaching, I thought it'd be fun to list my favourite scary films.

Slow-Cooked Sweet Potato and Chickpea Curry

With Autumn upon us and the temperature dropping rapidly here in the UK, I've begun using my crock-pot again. One of my favourite ways to prepare dinner, it's perfect for creating wholesome, mouth-watering meals without having to spend hours slaving away in the kitchen. There's nothing better than coming home from work to the beckoning smell of cooking, knowing that a tasty plate of food is just minutes away.

This curry is one of my ultimate go-to recipes - it's so hearty and comforting and is guaranteed to have you going back for second helpings! Packed with deliciously healthy ingredients, it's far better for you than a greasy takeaway.

Chocolate Porridge: My Favourite Healthy Breakfast

Satisfying my sweet tooth has always been a problem when I'm trying to make healthier choices. I love a hearty slab of Dairy Milk as much as the next person and nothing has ever been able to curb my cravings in quite the same way. I've always detested the bitterness of dark chocolate/cacao and didn't think I'd ever be able to enjoy incorporating it into my diet. Therefore you can imagine my delight when I discovered chocolate porridge!

This tastes so incredibly decadent you can hardly believe it's good for you. It's like eating dessert for breakfast. The fruit counteracts the bitterness of the cacao perfectly while the flax seeds add a satisfying crunch. I always like to add a dollop of peanut butter to my chocolate porridge, too, which leaves it tasting like a warm, gooey Snickers. Yum!
