Slimming World Tomato Speed Soup

I really love to have soup for lunch, especially in the winter, as it's so warm and filling. My favourite soup ever is Heinz Tomato soup - I used to have it almost every day for lunch a few years ago! When I started Slimming World, however, and discovered just how many syns I was putting inside me with each can, I decided to give it up. I've tried and enjoyed many Slimming World soup recipes since but none had ever quite as good. That was until I discovered their Tomato Speed Soup recipe. No, it's not full of drugs, it's called a speed soup because it contains lots of what Slimming World call "speed foods" which help to boost your weight loss. It's so delicious and so cheap & simple to make.

February Beauty Favourites

Last month I was moaning that time seemed to be dragging on so much, but February seems to have flown by! Yes, I know, it's the shortest month of the year, but it really doesn't feel like four weeks since my last post. Considering it's gone by so quickly, I've still managed to pack quite a few favourites into that time.

What I've Learned From Blogging

My blog is over a year old now an although I still consider myself as a bit of a newbie, I'd say I've learned a lot of things along the way too. I had a few ideas of what blogging would be like before I started and I think it's safe to say my perception of those has changed quite a lot too. Here's just a few things I've learned from my 14 months of blogging.

My Favourite Budget Eyeshadow Palettes

Whilst for me nothing will ever quite beat a good Urban Decay palette, there have been some really good alternatives cropping up on the high street recently which are really starting to rival them in terms of quality, and beat them hands down on price. It's making feeding my eyeshadow addiction that little bit cheaper! Here are some of my picks of the drugstore palettes.

My Favourite Essie Polishes

I love walking up to the Essie stand in my local Boots and having a browse at the amazing colour range they boast. I always find it so difficult to decide which ones to buy though - I want a pink, but which pink, there's about ten to choose from! As a result of my indecisiveness, I've ended up buying way more than I could possibly need, but here I've narrowed down six of my favourites.
