The Body Shop Body Butter's

I think it's fair to say I have a bit of a body butter obsession. Which is just as well because I'll be going on holiday soon and I'm depending on these beauties to transform my scaly, pasty legs into soft and sumptuous Giselle like pins. Well, a girl can dream. 

I have five flavours: Satsuma, Strawberry, Magnolia, Shea and Coconut.

Review: Garnier Body Ultimate Beauty Oil

Bottle of body oil
I'm a big fan of the Caudelie Divine Oil. It is divine and smells like heaven in a bottle but at £25 per 100ml it certainly isn't cheap. Ever the bargain hunter I wondered if the Garnier Body Ultimate Beauty Oil could be the budget friendly option that I had been searching for.

The Garnier Body Ultimate Beauty Oil promises perfect looking skin. Five times more concentrated in nutrients than their regular body lotion it is enriched with 4 precious oils - Argan, Macademia, Almond and Rose to visibly beautify the skin. 

Healthy Cooking on a Budget #1: Easy Peasy Zucchini Linguini

When it comes to cooking I'm pretty lazy. I like quick, healthy food that fills me up and doesn't cost a fortune. Frankly I have too much to do to be standing over the oven for hours on end. And if a recipe book asks me to spend £20 on ingredients you can bet your ass I'm chucking that book out of the window and taking myself to a restaurant so someone else can cook me food  and wash up for the same price.

When you're short of time and on a budget it can be tempting to head to the freezer isle, grab some oven chips and chicken kiev's and say to hell with it.

Over the next few weeks I'll show you some healthy meals that take less than 30 minutes to prep AND cook (yes Jamie Oliver and your 30 minute meals, I'm looking at you) using ingredients that you can buy in every supermarket that cost less than a bottle Gallo, leaving you with more money to spend on the important things. You know, like, shoes.
For this recipe you will need:
3 courgettes (zucchini) - 25p each
1 medium red onion - 33p
250g mushrooms - 80p
2 chicken breasts - £2.40
1/2 jar of green pesto - 50p

Total cost per person - £2.39
Calories per person: approx. 510

This serves 2 substantial potions.

Warwick Castle

In case you don't already know, I live in Warwick. It's a lovely sleepy little town. There are a few shops, pubs and restaurants and a really, really big castle.

On Sunday we decided to go for a little wonder round. With my (metaphorical) tourist hat on I climbed the 500 steps to the to top of the tallest tower and wondered along the battlements.

With our feet firmly back on the ground we pottered over to the Birds of Prey show. Huge Eagles swooped and soared majestically above our heads.
