It feels like such a long time since I’ve spoken about anything beauty or skincare related but having some lovely bits for Christmas (how long ago does that feel!?), I thought it was only right that I dust off my Beauty on Trial series. For those of you who are fairly new to Musings & More, Beauty on Trial is a series where I give you the low down on beauty and skincare products I’ve managed to get my mitts on! I always allow 2-3 weeks for testing, simply for fairness and so the product has the chance to do its thang. They aren’t always new products but rather new to me. Now let’s get started shall we?

Like a lot of you, I bloody love shopping. But what I love even more is bagging a bargain and being in January, there are lots to be had everywhere you turn. So I was especially excited when Queensgate Shopping Centre gifted me a £50 gift card (which could be spent within the shopping centre) for my next Qblogger challenge. They set me the task of spending the money on products for a cosy nights in, perfect considering how dark and miserable it is here in the UK and now Christmas is over.

You’re either reading this at the very, very end of 2017 or the very beginning of 2018. Welcome, either way! As I’ve said before, I love the excuse of a whole new year to sit back and take stock of the past year and more importantly, think about the future. Now don’t worry, this isn’t going to me telling you that you should have resolutions for 2018, but rather a list of rather nice, easy things you can do to make 2018 even more brilliant that’s it’s (hopefully!) already going to be.

I definitely haven’t done nearly enough baking this Christmas. I feel like the festive period is usually fairly leisurely but this year it seems like I’ve been busy non-stop and unfortunately baking has taken a back seat! I have, however, managed to squeeze in one particularly delicious recipe you can whip up in minutes. If you read my post last week, you might remember me mentioning Lakeland’s Candy Cane bark. I loved it so much that I decided to recreate it myself because let’s be honest, not only is it much cheaper but it’s so easy there’s no excuse not to make some! With a hint of peppermint, the creamy chocolate works so well with the crunchy candy cane to create a sweet treat nobody can resist! So what are you waiting for?

Like any self-respecting person, I bloody love Christmas. I love getting to spend time with friends and family, I love giving (and yes, receiving!) presents and I really love the food. Let’s not beat about the bush, Christmas time has the best food. Big juicy turkeys, pigs wrapped in blankets and all those tubs of chocolates mmm… So when my local shopping centre Queensgate invited me along for a festive feast, you wouldn’t believe how quickly I confirmed my attendance.
