Beauty // Nourish Relax Hydrating Peptide Serum #campaign4clarity

Nourish Hydrating Peptide Serum
Nourish Relax Hydrating Peptide Serum - £20*

If you've followed my blog for a while, you may remember my previous posts about organic skincare brand Nourish. Earlier this year I blogged about their Cell Protect Body Cream, and a couple of Christmas' ago I featured their Argan Beauty Collection. Having become familiar with the brand, it's definitely one I will continue to use and re-visit when looking for a new skincare product. 

Not only is Nourish an organic brand, but they also pride themselves on being cruelty free, and therefore vegan. Although not a vegan myself, having a best friend that is, certainly highlights vegan beauty products, or rather the lack there of. 

This latest product to join my collection is a relaxing and cooling hydrating serum, that has been designed to leave the skin looking healthy. Created for sensitive skin, this serum also helps reduce any irritation your skin might have, whilst soothing the skin with its cooling texture.

Recipes // Miso Roasted Aubergine Steaks with Sweet Potato (4/6)

Sweet Monday recipes, roasted aubergine with sweet potato

Part 4 of my 6 day vegetable challenge is here! This was up there with my favourite recipes from the week. How much does this look like steak? It's in fact roasted aubergine, flavoured with miso paste. I had never heard of doing this before. The flavours are incredible. I really like miso, but I've never had it in this way before. The rich flavouring from the miso and sweet potato, was balanced by the spring onion and parsley.

This dish also looks so appealing! If you're throwing a dinner party and are stuck for ideas I'd definitely recommend this dish. Click below for the full recipe...

London Eats // The Gate, Islington

The Gate Islington, Vegetarian restaurant London

Last Monday, Stew and I spent our evening dining at The Gate, in Islington. This beautiful restaurant, located a short walk from Angel underground station, serves a range of vegan, vegetarian, nut free and gluten free dishes. Something that can be hard to find, even in a city as diverse as London.

Although we are not vegetarian, we do enjoy eating and cooking vegetarian meals. Very often we will find ourselves going for the veggie option on a menu, as we’re always keen to try new things. This being said, I have only ever dined at two vegetarian based caf├ęs before, with my best friend who happens to be vegan. Since living with her for a year, and being friends for as long as I can remember, she has introduced a range of delicious foods and new ways of cooking to me. I know that she would love The Gate and I can’t wait to take her there on her next visit.

Outfit // 70's Vibe

Ark Clothing, Glamorous sheepskin coat
Coat - Ark* // Dress - Ark* // Boots - Topshop

I seem to be rolling with the seventies trend throughout my outfits recently. Last weekend saw me sporting some (rather wild) flares, and the week before I was wearing this awesome suedette coat. Now I've teamed the jacket of dreams with this folk style, paisley print dress, from Ark. 

Not being much of a dress person, or much of red person, this dress was a little out of my comfort zone. But the model on site looked so god in it, she did a good job selling it to me, so I couldn't resist! I love the fact it has a high neck, something I consistently look for in my clothing now. It also has some pretty epic open sleeves which you can see in a photo further on in the post, by clicking below...

Lifestyle // Matilda the Musical

Matilda the Musical

Last Thursday, Stew and I had the fantastic opportunity of watching Matilda the Musical at the Cambridge Theatre, in London.

It was a truly mesmerising evening. Only ever having seen one musical before this, I was extremely excited. A few friends of mine had previously seen it, and told me I would love it. And we really did! The entire cast were incredible. It was the children’s first evening performing, but you really couldn’t tell. They were each fantastic and very professional. It blew my mind how they can do it all – act, sing, dance!

The set itself was very entertaining too, with lots of moving objects and swings hanging from the ceiling. It was a lot of fun!
