As much as it pains me to say, as I know my Mum will read this and her head will get even bigger than it already is, but this week the best thing I’ve had is this. Homemade Lemon Drizzle Cake.
My Mum used to make this all the time but life’s been a little crazy recently that she’s just not had the chance to get in the kitchen and do some good old baking. However, last weekend she did just that and made this incredible Lemon Drizzle Cake.
This is definitely one of my favourite cakes. It’s so moist (ugh, that word) but no joke, it’s incredible.
Yes Mum, you’ve finally made it to the blog!
I hope you all enjoy your weekend, fingers crossed for some decent weather. I’ll see you back here on Monday!

Firstly can we appreciate my new back drop? I’ve jumped on the ‘millennial pink’ bandwagon and I’m loving it. So head’s up, there will be more of this coming in future posts.
You would’ve seen last week, I bought you my new and improved morning routine. If you missed it, check out that blog post >> HERE << So with that in mind, I thought I would bring you my evening routine.
I seem to have perfected my evening routine, simplified it massively & I’m loving it. I’ll tell you what, I’ve noticed a massive difference in my skin since I’ve stuck to a regular, simplified routine and one that my skin is agreeing with.
So let’s jump into it. This is my evening skin routine, from start to finish.
// Cleanse \\
Product: Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser
So firstly I actually brush my teeth… but after that, the first step is to cleanse. Without fail, I will always cleanse in the evening. It’s to important to ‘take the day off’ and fully give your skin the cleanse it needs. I’m absolutely loving the Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser as you all know, I’m just buzzing for October when I can order it and have it delivered to the UK.
// Serum \\
Product: The Ordinary Retinoid
After cleansing, I then use a serum. The serum I am loving right now is this, The Ordinary Retinoid Serum. This is a relatively new discovery, although one I have already repurchased. I was always very sceptical of serums, I didn’t really see the point. But after seeing other bloggers talk about this brand & also seeing it stocked on ASOS, I decided to pick it up and give it a go. The results I’ve seen with this, are pretty incredible. It’s evened the complexion of my skin & now my routine wouldn’t be the same without it.
// Lips \\
Product: Glossier Balm Dot Com
To finish off with, I pop on some lip balm and head to bed. I’ve got a massive obsession with lip balm and now think my lips rely on the stuff. I couldn’t go to bed without. My favourite right now is Balm Dot Com from Glossier, however I’m also loving my L’occitane lip balm. This just adds that last bit of moisture to complete my evening routine.
So there you have it, a very simple evening skin routine. I truly believe, any kind of skin routine doesn’t need to be complicated. The simpler, the better.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s post & I’ll see you back here on Friday to finish off the week!

God it feels weird to be back. I know there have been blog posts going up but I had to schedule all of them as I’ve recently moved house and knew I wouldn’t have internet for a week whilst. So actually sitting down to write this post, feels weird. But I’m back nevertheless, so let’s have a catch up…
Well, moving house is pretty stressful, isn’t it. The exchange of money, the moving in, the figuring out a new house and the cleaning of everything. It’s all been a little overwhelming and life seem’s to be a bit non-stop. I’m planning to do a blog post about moving house once we’ve been in here a little longer and I have a bit more to say.
To escape the craziness of it all, the weekend after moving into the new house, I decided to pack a bag and head for Penzance, Cornwall. The escape was much needed.
We took the 4 hour drive down to Cornwall on the Friday night, stayed with family and woke up bright and early the next day, to beautiful sunny skies. Dad and I decided to head over to St Michaels Mount, somewhere I’ve not been for years. It was absolutely dead and nobody was around… it was perfect.
We spent ages just walking around the island, taking in the sights, snapping away and enjoying the sun. After that, we head back down the path to have breakfast on the beach, in a restaurant called The Godolphin.
I would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone. The food was incredible.
We then head into town to look around the shops. Penzance doesn’t really have too much of a sprawling metropolis… however, what it lacks in volume, it makes up in quality. We spent a further 2 hours just mooching in and out of the little, unusual shops seeing if there was anything worth our money.
After a pretty disappointing turn out on the shopping front, we head home…
The late morning/early afternoon was spent in the garden, cup of tea in hand just watching the world go by. Honestly, the pure tranquillity of it was just so perfect. At that moment in time, I didn’t want to be anywhere else.
August/September has proven to be pretty hectic. My diary is jam packed, I’ve been heading here, there and everywhere and in the past week especially, It’s been a bit non stop. With work being busier than ever, the house move, keeping up to date on blog stuff & managing a social life, it’s all been a little much.
This little break away, was just what I needed. I can definitely say, Cornwall is one of my ‘happy places’. I have 2 weeks off work towards the end of the month, the family and I are heading back down to Cornwall to spend a few days. My plan is to go ‘radio silent’ and completely relax. A little detox is on the cards.
Other than that, everything has been pretty good. I’m excited to finally have wi-fi in this new house and I’m buzzing to get creating content! I’ll see you back here on Wednesday for another post. N.B: I have no idea what it is yet!!
Thanks for checking in.

You would’ve see this on my Brighton post, but incase you didn’t here it is again! Emma & I went to Brighton over the bank holiday weekend and hit up Dum Dum Donuts. The most amazing donuts you will ever have!
The one I had was called The Zebra. It’s a cronut, layered with chocolate, topped with chocolate and it’s all about chocolate. Honestly, I could eat hundreds of these!
This is definitely a well deserved Foody Friday and probably my favourite one for a while.
I hope you all enjoy your weekend and I’ll see you back here on Monday!
