The Ingredients: Onion, Garlic, Peppers, Celery, Courgettes, Aubergine, Tomatoes, Mushrooms, Lasagne Sheets, Dolmio Bolognese Sauce and White Sauce (Im no gordon ramsay ok?). I thought at first I may have too many different flavours going on, but it was amazing.I fried the veggies on a low heat in a wok (it was the only thing big enough) cooking the hardest veg first (onion, celery, peppers etc) and gradually added in the rest. Herb wise, I very liberally threw in black pepper, paprika, oregano(nomnomnom), basil, coriander, pretty much whatever I fancied. It was an experiment after all. When everything was softened up I threw in the tomato sauce (tinned chopped tomato is fine too, but I got a deal on the two sauces together :)

Hi Everyone! I got off work early today and decided to do something different (no make-up tutorial this week guys!) I've wanted to try making vegetarian lasagne for ages now, but never really had the time or patience. Turns out it wasn't hard to make at all (just very time consuming, with all the prep work) and it was delicious. I find myself eating a pescetarian diet mainly, but by no means strictly, I just don't really like meat or poultry that much. That said, I think anyone, vegetarian or not, will like this, I even got my boyfriend who refuses to eat mushrooms, tomatoes or any funny-looking veggies, to finish his plate :) this isn't going to be a tutorial as such, but I'll take you through what I used etc. The bruchetta came about because the ciabatta bread was on offer in the shop and I decided to make that as a side. It alone would make a yummy lunch, if you had time to make it. Let me know what you think in the comments!

Hi Everyone! This week's swatch is #003 from the Kate Moss collection for Rimmel. This is the nudest shade in the range, and I bought mine the last day on a whim (coz I just don't have enough nude lippies in my collection :P) This is actually one of the darkest nudes I own, I tend to go for the palest of the pale shades, and I was pleasantly surprised by how wearable this is, I'm always afraid of looking too nineties with a brown toned lip colour. This is nice because its not so pale as to make you look like death warmed up, but it's still subtle enough to not compete with the rest of your make-up. And it doesn't make teeth look awfully yellow, which is always good. Have you tried this?

Hi Everyone! I wanted this week's tutorial to be a little bit different, and I was determined not to use warm peachy colours :). I used the Smashbox Girls on Film Smokebox to create this look, I hope you like it!

Hi Everyone! So I was happy out doing this tutorial, feeling good about actually getting something done, and I go to edit the photos, and I realize this is like the 100th look I've done with these same type of colours! What's wrong with me? I guess I automatically veer towards these shades because they suit me, but it must be very boring lol. Apologies. Hope you like it anyway :) The inspiration:
