Benefit Roller Lash Mascara – is it worth the hype?

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara – is it worth the hype?

So a few weeks back, Benefit launched their latest mascara – Roller Lash. Twitter & instagram went a little bit bonkers with raving reviews and excitement. In fact I am not sure I read one thing bad about it and I have to say it […]

Another Mini Make Up Haul

Another Mini Make Up Haul

Last week, I found myself in town with time to kill and so popped into our local Superdrug to have a browse.

I’ve really needed a new mascara lately, as my old ones are getting a bit past it! I fancied something a bit different to my usual Miss Sporty selection and so I went to the Maybelline section to have a look at what they had on offer.

I picked up this Great Lash Mascara in blackest black, and while I was there spotted the new Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser. Having seen the Benefit Porefection fill up my twitter timeline for so long, and yet having been in a position to splurge, this looked like a good drug store alternative and so I picked it up for £3.99.

I also got their new Matte Maker Mattifying Powder too, as well as a vaseline lipsil as my lips have been so very dry recently.

A few weeks ago I picked up Elle Magazine and got a Benefit Roller Lash as a free gift and haven’t mentioned that on here yet so thought I would include it in this little haul too.

I am really looking forward to trying all of these lovely newbies out this weekend and hope you will tune in next week to read about what I think of them.

Sweet Potato & Cauliflower Curry

As you know I am on a bit of a health kick to get myself back into shape in time for my Holiday in May and so rather than turning to our local takeaway I decided to try and replicate our favourite Indian dishes at home, making them healthier, less calorfic & cheaper!

You will need:

1 cauliflower

2 sweet Potatoes

Handful of cherry tomatoes

Green beans

1 cup of peas

1 onion

2 garlic cloves

1tsp ground ginger

1tsp garam masala

1tbsp curry powder (we went for Tesco tikka)

2tbsp of vegetable oil

Method:

Peel & chop the garlic & onions  and add to a large pan with 1tbsp oil and the ground ginger. Heat on the hob until the onions are golden brown.

Add the chopped cauliflower into the pan, along with the rest of the oil and fry on a medium heat.

Peel & dice the sweet potatoes, halve the tomatoes and chop the green beans. Add them to the pan along with 250ml of boiling water, peas, the garam masala & curry powder and bring to the boil.

Cook until your vegetables are soft and serve immediately as a side dish or with rice as a main.
