Nike Air Pegasus + 30 Running Shoes


Nike Air Pegasus + 30 Running Shoes - £62.99 @ thehut.com

A few years ago i bought some cheapy trainers for the odd (and i mean odd) bit of exercise i did. Not really thinking about how important having a good pair of trainers really were. I dabbled with a bit of running back at the start of the year but soon gave up. But when my fella bought some Nike Flyknit Lunar 2s,  i was pretty jealous and i wanted to get a pair for myself. Obviously there wasn't any point as i wasn't running so i gave up that idea. It was only when one morning i woke up and thought i really need to sort my life out, get healthy and in shape that i decided to finally invest in a decent pair of trainers. With the help of my runner other half, we did a lot of research for the best type of trainers for me and decided on the Nike Air Pegasus + 30 Running Shoes, i got these from The Hut. The mesh on the supper side adds support and ventilation and the cushion foam provides soft, springy and resistant cushioning. Making these bad boys ridiculously light and incredibly comfortable. These have made such a big difference to my fitness journey, i'm racking in some serious mileage in them and haven't had a single issue with them at all. They keep my feet supported and i honestly couldn't be happier, i love them a lot and highly recommend them! I've got a new series coming up about my heath and fitness journey so i'll do more about my exercise etc in the next couple of weeks so you'll probably be hearing about these a lot more on here! Ahhhh how did i ever live without them?!

BRAND SPOTLIGHT - TARTE COSMETICS


First of all, let’s just all take a moment to 'ohhhhh' and 'ahhhhh' at the beautiful packaging for tarte cosmetics! I'm an absolute sucker for awesome packaging and these lovely pieces are just simply wonderful! Tarte cosmetics are a brand which have been mentioned a lot in the blogging world over the past few years, the focus has mainly been on their Amazonian clay blushes which are actually award winning but there's a lot of other products which have been raved about too. New for Spring/Summer is this waterproof mascara which is their best-selling lights, camera, lashes™ 4-in-1 mascara in a waterproof version with limited-edition packaging! It aims to lengthen, curl and volumnize your lashes. I have the original of this mascara and it's lovely. It's perfect for volume and giving me thick but natural looking lashes. It's has a really expensive feel too! It's nice to have a mascara packaged in something other than plastic. Another new product is this neutral eye shadow palette which features five brand new Amazonian clay shadows designed for day and nightwear. As I’m getting older I’m noticing darker eye circles, I’ve always had a bit of an issue with this but I feel as though it's more obvious now so I’m making more of a conscious effort to look at eye brightening treatments so this one really caught my eye (excuse the pun!) with ingredients of maracuja fruit, vitamin C and advanced botanicals, this cream will hydrates, firms and brightens the delicate eye area. Perfection! I also really like the look of the tight & bright perfector which I think would be perfect for first thing in the morning and for evening out skin tone. I'd team it with waterproof concealer. Finally, and of course solely down to the packaging are these Amazonian butter lipsticks are creamy, moisturising and made from natural ingredients. Peppermint oil adds a refreshing hint of mint with each application and helps give lips a fuller, plumped up appearance! Available in eight different shades.

Have you tried tarte cosmetics before? Which product is your favourite?

RECIPE: LOW CARB CAULIFLOWER PIZZA

After making these pizzas a few a times now, i feel like i finally know what i'm doing! I actually pre make my bases, so i made these yesterday afternoon for last nights dinner. The bases become a little harder so toppings tend to stay in place and don't become too soft, which I've found when bases are still warm. But it's all trial and error and each to their own. One thing is for certain though, these are incredible and ridiculously yummy! 
 
So if you fancy giving these a go too, then here's how...
For the base, you will need:
  • 1 small cauliflower 
  • 1/4 grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 grated mozzarella
  • Garlic (i used garlic salt)
  • Oregano 
  • 1 egg 
The first thing you need to do is pre heat your oven to 200C/410F. Then grate your cauliflower in to a microwaveable bowl. I've found that two full cups makes a reasonable size base. I ended up putting 4 in as i made two pizzas! This can be pretty messy so i put a tea towel down too. When you've finished grating, put a plate over the bowl and place in the microwave for about 5 minutes. 
Once your cauliflower has finished cooking, place it on a dry tea towel to cool down. You'll need to squeeze (really squeeze!) the moisture out afterwards so be careful and make sure it's cooled down enough to do this. I got my baking trays ready whilst i waited, i recommend using grease proof paper with a couple of sprays of fry light to avoid sticking.
Once you've removed all the water, place the cauliflower in a bowl along with your other ingredients. When this is all mixed together place on your grease proof paper and flatten in to a base like shape. Round off the edges too! Pop in the oven for approx 15/20 mins, or until slightly golden brown. I don't fully cook the bases as they'll continue to cook once the toppings are on. 
Now time for the toppings! You can put whatever you like on, but i wanted to make mine relatively healthy. Add two spoons of passata to your base and spread across, i added a little more oregano to as well. Don't forget to add your cheeses on top too! I went for more Parmesan, mozzarella and a little bit of feta, hmmm mega cheesy! Pop in the oven on the same temp as before until all the cheese has melted.  I tend to cook my toppings in a frying pan for a few mins before just to get them started too!
Et voila! These are seriously so good and it's so nice to enjoy a pizza and not worry about eating a million calories. I worked this out to be about 500 for the whole thing so not bad at all! Deffo give these a go, i promise you won't be disappointed! Enjoy!
