It's almost Christmas!

I can't believe Christmas is so very close!
Unfortunately I can't fully relax until I have got my school work out of the way but hopefully, it won't take too long.
Blogging has unfortunately been pushed back lately due to things being busy but I just wanted to quickly wish you a very merry Christmas! 

I hope you have time to relax and enjoy the company of those around you.

Much love

Lush Bath Bombs

Personally, I am very good at getting myself stupidly worked up and stressed over things that really aren't worth it (usually school), and one way that I like to relax is with a really nice bath. Usually, I find it pretty difficult to just sit and relax because I get bored so quickly but I have definitely found that a bath bomb helps me to relax.

In all honesty, I can't say that I have really tried many brands of bath bomb but I have always been a fan of Lush. Knowing that Lush is a trusty brand and loving the results of their products, typically it is my go to brand. 

If you are stressed and in need of relaxing, I highly recommend Lush and their products.

Homemade Holiday Treat - Spiced Banana Bread

Although I try (and fail) to eat healthily and resist the delicious temptation of cake, the holidays seem like the perfect time to treat yourself. So, what a better way to treat yourself than by making this amazing banana bread! One of the first things that come to my mind when I think about Christmas is the spices, specifically cinnamon and ginger. As a result of this, I will add some spice whenever I see the opportunity, for example in the banana bread.

Having been ill for the last few days, in the result of being stuck in the house, I slowly felt myself going insane. So, as I was feeling a little better I took this opportunity to do some festive baking. I didn't want anything too heavy like chocolate so I decided to go with some lovely banana bread. I took a simple banana bread recipe (140g Sugar, 140g Butter, 140g self-raising flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 2 eggs, 2 bananas) and then add a little spice, I didn't measure the spice but I did add a decent amount of cinnamon and a dash of ginger. 

If you are looking for a simple yet delicious festive bake I definitely recommend adding some spice.

Thanks for reading,
