Christmas Cinnamon Cookies

Hi Everyone,

With Christmas fast approaching I thought for today's blog I would share how I make my Christmas Cinnamon Cookies. Perfect to make for a party, friends or even to bake with the kids. They are really simple, quick and easy to make, you can customise the recipe to make it your own. 


120g Unsalted Butter 
140g Brown Sugar 
2 tbsp Honey 
1 Medium Egg
100g Plain Flour 
1/2 tsp Baking Powder 
1-2 tsp Cinnamon 
200g Porridge Oats 
Makes 10 to 12 Cookies 

I bought all my ingredients from Asda for under £10 and it will make 2 - 3 batches.  


  • Pre-heat oven to 200°c/Gas Mark 6.
  • Mix: Softened Butter, Sugar and Honey - Whisk until fluffy. 

  • Beat in the Egg, sift in the flour, baking powder and cinnamon.
  • Add the oats and mix.

  • Once combined roll out the cookies around 1.5 cm thick 
  • Bake for 12 minutes and leave to cool before eating. 
  • Cookies can be stored for up to 5 days in an air tight container. 
  • You can add chocolate chips, nuts, replace the cinnamon with extra honey. 

Let me know if you give them a try.

October Favourites 2015

Hi Everyone, 

Its the beginning of November so I thought I would share my October favourites. 


First up is hair products; I have really dry hair and I noticed it's been braking off at the ends so I purchased a new hair moisturiser. 
Dark and Lovely Olive Oil Moisturiser for very dry or course hair. 
I've been using this for over a month now and my hair is a lot softer and its not braking as much as it was. 250ml Bottle for £3, I bought mine from Tesco. 

My Second hair favourite is the Argan Oil Heat Defence, I have used the Argan Oil Deep Conditioning Mask for 2 years and I love it so I thought I would give this a try. 
This product works really well with my Oil Moisturiser, my hair feels smooth and less stray fly aways. 150ml spray bottle for £2, I bought mine from Body Care. 

Skin Care 

My two favourite skin care products this month have been Clarins Multi Active Serum and Clarins Eye Contour Balm. As the Weather has changed my skin tends to become drier, so I  have been using these two products in combination with my regular face cream and it has been working really well. 


For nails this month I have been loving Cafe Au Lait by W7, I recently removed my acrylics so I have been working on getting my nails back in to a good condition, so I have been using this nude colour which has helped to make my nails look healthier than they really are. 

In combination with this I have been using Pro Strong Nail Strengthener Treatment, its a four week treatment to achieve stronger nails I apply this twice a day over my nail polish, I have been using this for 2 weeks and my nails are improving. I will probably be doing a full review on this product when I have finished the next 2 weeks.
