One-a-penny, two-a-penny, hot cross buns!

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

I love the smell of hot cross buns fresh from the oven, and the taste is even better especially with a healthy dose of melting butter. Yum! Today being Good Friday it was only appropriate to whip up a batch, and enjoy them with a hot drink.

Did you know that old English folklore is that these yummy buns can help the heal sick? With just one bite they can help a person recover. Another folklore is that they ensure good friendship the coming year when shared with a friend…these little buns sure are filled with lots of interesting history.

This recipe was from a Williams – Sonoma book, which was quite lengthy…but delicious.

The recipe found HERE seems easier, especially for a first attempt.

Beauty tip: Get Ready for the Sun!

Thursday, April 21st, 2011

Although it seems as though the summer sun is still far, far away, hopefully it will be here very soon.  The best way to prep for those strong summer rays:  this Neutrogena sunscreen.  I have never worn sunscreen as I rarely burn, enjoy a sun-kissed face, and have worried about sunscreen clogging my pores.

After a scary visit to the Dermatologist last year, I was ordered to wear sunscreen EVERY DAY, RAIN OR SHINE.  A friend recommended this sunscreen (thanks Annie), I tried it, and have never looked back.  Not only am I getting the protection I need, but my face feels fresh and full of moisture.  I apply it every morning before putting on my makeup and is my number one best beauty tip for you!  I hope you enjoy this protecting, anti-aging, moisture locking sunscreen as much as I do!

PS.  This sunscreen is on sale right now for $8.94 at Target.

Target Tuesday: Green Inspired

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

Today on our Target visit we fell in love with this adorable new line of stationery by Green Inspired.

A couple of these little beauties would really help spice up a dull work area, with their fun designs and bold colours. The prices are great also, for example the list pads (pictured above in the bowl) are 3 for $4.99…matched with a cute pen or pencil they would be a lovely addition for any Easter basket.
