I’m fortunate enough to have access to a lot of different make-up when deciding what to slap on my face. Problem is, like most people, I usually find myself picking up the same, fail-safe beauty products. This week, I’m telling you all about my favourites.

Nearly three years ago, I started Musings & More. My very first post was about our visit to The Ivy Chelsea Garden for Matt’s birthday. I took the photos on my phone and bashed out a post without any real thought. Last weekend, we were invited for an all inclusive meal at The Ivy Cambridge Brasserie and to provide a review after its recent opening.  Funny how things turn out eh?

For a couple of months now, a certain subject has been brewing in my mind, one that I wasn’t sure that I should leave firmly there in my mind or one I should, y’know, have a chat about on Musings & More. But here we are.

There are 2 million blog posts written daily. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you how the blogging world is bloody massive and how easy it is to feel like a small fish in a big pond. There is one thing that I think is crucially important in all this though. Whether you’re a brand-spankin’ new blogger or one who’s been doing this for a good while now. And that, my friends – wait for the trumpets – is to be yourself. Yep, it’s as simple (and hella corny) as that.

dream holiday

Travelling has always been a big part of Matt and mines relationship since the very beginning. We’re both desperate to see as much of the world as possible, especially while we can. Over the years, there have always been two places we’ve talked about time and time again. A few years back, our focus was on buying a house together and that meant our dream holiday wasn’t feasible due to the sheer amount of money it would cost. But back in Februarywe finally booked our flights to New Zealand and Australia!

rocky roaq

I have an immense love of chocolate so you can imagine how excited I get when it comes to Easter! With so many delicious ingredients to play with, it’s one of my favourite times of the year to bake and this years creation is pretty much lots of my favourite things combined in an incredibly easy fridge cake! The great thing about Rocky Road is it can literally be anything you want it to. I potentially went a bit overboard with my recipe as mine contains biscuit, peanuts, marshmallows, Cadbury Mini Eggs and Galaxy Caramel Eggs. I know, I know – but trust me, it just worked! My favourite part is definitely the caramel eggs as I love the gooeyness amongst the crunch of the biscuits and peanuts. If your attending any Easter get togethers these will look great stacked up on the plate or even if you’re not, they won’t last long in your house!
