Blogmas DAY 1: Neals Yard & Terrys Cupcakes


M&S Calendar Day 1

So as its the first of DECEMBER! I thought I would give blogmas a go. Lets see how long this lasts!

I thought I would kick it off with showing you what I got in the M&S calendar today! As soon as I woke up this morning, I ran down stairs to open the first box from my calendar to see if it was a facial product or makeup that I could use straight away while getting ready for work. But it wasn't, it was hand cream so I was a little disappointed because I wanted to test something straight away.

So the product in day 1 is Neal's Yard Remedies Bee Lovely Hand Cream. Neal's Yard is lovely but I'm so rubbish at applying hand cream regularly and I have so many from different brands like Burts Bees, L'occitane and Crabtree & Evelyn that I barely use. I guess being a Beauty Therapist I don't really feel the need to apply hand cream because I am using all sorts of moisturising lotions and potions on clients every day so my hands get quite a lot of loving already.

Anyway, This Neals yard hand cream is from their Save the Bee's Range where they donate £10,000 a year to projects that Help Save the Bees as they are rapidly decreasing in number.
This product is a full size 50ml tube which sells on their website for £10 and it has amazing reviews so i probably will end up testing it out and I will most likely love it but then forget about it soon after.

Terry's Chocolate Orange Cupcakes

Also, I made Terry's Chocolate Orange Cupcakes the other day which are perfect for this time of year and are so simple to make! They went down a treat too. I did a basic chocolate sponge which chunks of terry chocolate orange mixed through the batter and then a simple orange infused butter cream topped with a segment of the Chocolate Orange to make them look even more amazing. If anyone you would like to know my recipe for these cupcakes just leave me a comment below!
