Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

I had tried out my friend's beauty blender and loved it but it cost way too much for me. Instead I decided to give the Real Techniques dupe a go and I have to admit I prefer it. It's not so good for coverage but the round edge is great for a flawless base and an even complexion. The reason I prefer it to the beauty blender is the flat edge which is perfect for patting in and blending concealer. Not to mention it only costs £5.99 at Superdrug! I definitely recommend it to those on a budget.

My Favourite Healthy Recipes

For a while I have had trouble keeping my food down which has caused me a lot of stress. I was nowhere near healthy: I'd binge eat all day, have massive portions of stodgy food and after a while my body just seemed to say no. I have started making healthier snacks, juices/smoothies and joined a gym with my mum (which really helped!). Here are some of the recipes I have been enjoying:

Grilled courgette:

All you need to do is slice some courgette,
brush with olive oil and lemon and stick it on the grill!

 Peach and banana juice:
  • 1 peach (sliced, so it blends quicker)
  • 1 sliced banana
  • coconut water
  • a pinch of cinnamon

Peanut butter chocolate chip bars:

I am obsessed with peanut butter so I was
really excited when I found this recipe!

And lastly...

My favourite juice:
  • A handful of pineapple chunks
  • 1/2 Celery stalk
  • A handful of mango chunks
  • A small handful of spinach
  • 1 inch of ginger
  • Sliced banana
  • Coconut water
