Chapped lips aren’t and never will be the norm. Us being in the early Winter season doesn’t help… But, we can do something about it. There are plenty of lip scrubs (and petroleum jellies) that can help get rid of dead skin on and/or around the lip.
I know that you know that I know that you know that I love applying charcoal-y things on my face (la visage). I’m always banging on about Dark Angels, Coalface and Younique’s Dextoxifying Mask, aren’t I?
I am thinking of revamping Beauty Bae in time for 2017. Ideally, I’d like to start by changing the theme (web design) of this site along with the logo. However, I’m struggling to come up with ideas… That’s where YOU come in!
Anyone care to offer me some advice? What would YOU like to see on Beauty Bae? How can I improve it for your viewing (…reading) pleasure?
This could be anything from suggestions on how to make the logo or web design/theme look better to new ideas for posts or topics.
Get in touch with me via Facebook, Twitter,YouTube, Snapchat/Instagram: @miamii.mansour or here in the comments section below and share your thoughts.
Above all, Beauty Bae is for YOU! With that in mind – it’ll be good to know what YOU want to see more (or less) of, and how you’d want this blog to look.
Have a good rest of 2016 (or try to, anyway). I know it’s hard, but don’t let the sudden and shocking passing of icons get you down too much. It’s been an awful year on the face of it, but there are plenty of blessings in our lives that outweigh the crap that’s occurring around us… RIP to all the greats.
Every year I volunteer to cook Christmas dinner for my family as a tradition and this year was no different.
Here we have an all-butter, honey and mixed herb turkey with nut stuffing, sweet potato wedges, chestnuts and an array of mixed vegetables seasoned with salt, pepper, as well as various other spices.
Top tip when cooking turkey: take it out of the fridge the night before and slather it in butter (get it under the skin) and all the way around the inside (where the giblets are) and leave it to defrost in room temperature. COVERING IT OVERNIGHT IS VITAL. A plastic bag with holes in will do.
Then, a few hours prior to cooking the next day, add more butter on top and squirt honey all over it, adding sea salt, pepper, garlic and mixed dry herbs. Pierce it with a fork all over, and leave to soak.
Once the turkey has soaked up all the flavours, pop it in the oven for however long it takes to cook at Gas Mark 4 before taking it out, leaving it to cool, later devouring with the vegetables and cranberry or bread sauce and gravy.
Top tip for sweet potato wedges: cut them inot quarters length ways and sprinkle brown sugar, squirt some honey, add a dash of olive oil, sprinkle some black pepper and salt then let them roast for 25-30 mins (or until soft). I included cracked open chestnuts in the tray for added flavour.
