Cinnamon Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies

75g Butter
50g Brown Sugar
3 Table Spoons of Golden Syrup
100g Milk Chocolate Chips
1-2 Tea Spoons of Cinnamon
175g Plain Flour
1/2 Tea Spoon Baking Soda  
Pinch of Salt
To Begin start by sifting the dry ingredients (Flour, Baking Power, Cinnamon and Salt) into a bowl. Next add the butter, then rub the ingredients together with your fingertips until it forms a breadcrumb like texture. Next you will need to add the brown sugar, golden syrup and chocolate chips. Mix this together to form a dough. It is now time to shape the cookies, to do this roll the small balls of the mixture and gently flatten on a baking tray. Then place in the middle shelf of a pr-heated over set to 180oc for 10 minutes or until golden. Once you have taken them out the oven leave them on the tray to cool and harden. Once they are cool, you can now plate them up and enjoy!!

I love this recipe, the flavour of the cinnamon make this the perfect recipe for Autumn. If you are not the biggest cinnamon fan then feel free to leave this ingredient out, the cookies will still taste amazing!

Cocowhite - Review

Cocowhite is one of those products I am constantly seeing on Instagram and I have been desperate to try. I have to admit I have been very sceptical about using this as I was unsure of its capability. The product exceeded my expectations. Though my smile is still not quite as bright as Simon Cowell's, it is fair to say it is looking brighter! 
I love the packaging, it is very simple and fun. The sachets come in a compact box that features a unique image, along with bright bold colours. On the back of the box is all the information you need, what the product is, how to use it, the ingredients and information about the company. This is an all natural cruelty free product - which I love! It is a two week course, and is so simple to use. Simply squeeze one sachet of the coconut oil into your mouth and swirl it around for 15 minutes then repeat this everyday for 14 days. 
Now I am not going to lie and tell you that this product can work miracles, for me it simply removed stains and ultimately has given my teeth a brighter even colouring. The product quite simply is coconut oil with a small amount of flavouring, (the flavouring was not that strong to be honest). This would be easy enough to do at home without having to buy this box, but it is convenient having it all ready to use. To maintain the removal of discolouration (from caffeine etc) this is a process you would need to repeat every few months as it does not prevent future teeth staining!

Overall I really like this product. For me I started to notice subtle improvements quite quickly, and found that for the price tag (RRP £24.99) this product is reasonable if you are not willing to splash out hundreds of pounds on professional teeth whitening.

Let me know your thoughts about this product? Have you tried it? Be sure to let me know in the comments section below!

Banana Pops - Recipe

Dark Chocolate
Desiccated Coconut
Popsicle Sticks

To begin with you will need to peel your bananas, then cut the bananas in half, now you can take your Popsicle sticks and pop them in the end of the bananas. Next break up the dark chocolate and melt it in a microwavable bowl. To make sure you don't burn your chocolate I would recommend that every 20 seconds you take out the chocolate and stir, repeat this until perfectly melted. Now is for the fun part, dip over half of your banana in the melted dark chocolate, you want to make sure you get a nice even coverage (this can be a bit messy). To decorate take your choice of toppings,  I used sprinkles and desiccated coconut, but you can get really creative and use anything from nuts to edible glitter. Once you have decorated the bananas, all that is left to do is pop them in the freezer until the chocolate has set and enjoy!!

I love this recipe these are so easy to put together, and are great to make with younger children. When ever my younger cousin comes to visit, he always enjoys making these treats and gets very creative with the decorating!

3 DIY Facemasks

As the seasons have started to change my skin has been going slightly crazy, and is in need of some TLC. Recently I have started researching and experimenting with different products to find out what can save my skin from the colder weather.
Mask 1
First up is this Banana, Oats and Honey mask. Bananas are packed full of antioxidants and moisture perfect for dry skin. Oats work really well as a natural cleanser and also work as a gentle scrub thanks to the grittiness of the oats, it is ideal to use on sensitive skin because it is so gentle. The Honey contains antibacterial properties which makes it a great acne treatment.

To make this mask start by taking your banana and mash it up with a fork to form a paste, you then add the oats (you can use as many oats as you want depending on the consistency you wish to achieve). Finally add a generous tea spoon of the honey and stir well. This is so easy to make and I love that the ingredients are all so natural, by making your own masks you really know what you are putting on your skin!
Mask 2
One of the main benefits of using Avocado on your skin is that it is super moisturising because it has such a high oleic acid content. It is full of anti ageing properties and can help to fight acne. Olive Oil is high in vitamin E as well as other antioxidants which help to keep skin smooth and protect it from premature ageing.   

It is crazy that this mask only contains two ingredients and for me it works wonders. Now it is probably quite obvious but to make this mask all you need to do is take 1 ripe avocado and mash it up with a fork (this can take a bit of time), then go ahead and add the olive oil (you can add as much olive oil as you want, I used about 1 table spoon). This mask is so simplistic, and super easy to put together as it only contain's 2 ingredients. It acts as a moisturiser perfect for dry and sensitive skin. 
Mask 3
There are so many benefits of using Cacao Powder it is full of antioxidants that will add a lovely glow to your skin as well as moisturising and helping to fight ageing. Again honey works as a great acne treatment. Coconut Oil now if you have read my previous post explaining my love of coconut oil (read here) then you will probably understand why I have included this product, it is full of antibacterial and anti fungal properties, it is really gentle yet works as a great cleanser.

This mask smells amazing, when ever I put it on my face I am actually tempted to eat it, so far I have managed to resist. Again this mask is easy to put together, simply put 1 table spoon of the cacao powder along with 2 tea spoons of honey and 1 tea spoon of melted coconut oil into a bowl and stir until a smooth paste forms.

What I love most about these masks is how simple and natural they are. Each item is packed full of so much goodness and just does wonders for your skin. 

Be sure to let me know if you try out any of these mask, in the comment section down below. Are  there any homemade face masks you think I should try out?
