Our skin is our largest organ. So it makes sense that we use make-up that's good for it - right? Until recently I wasn't really aware of the chemicals that are in the well known brands we love 🤔 Over the next few weeks I'm switching out my make-up to @nudebynature (amongst other brands that are #toxinfree and #crueltyfree ♥️) to see if they match-up. 👉 Stay posted for tried and tested verdict 📝 Side note: packaging is on fleek #rosegold everything 💥#veganfriendly

Starting to feel a lot like Christmas🎄🎁🎅🏽🤶🏼Today's been all about Christmas movies and baking #paleo mince pies - pretty ideal! Below is my recipe - give it a go and tag me in the result 📸 Makes 24 Pastry ▫️300g almond meal ▫️2 eggs ▫️30g refined coconut oil ▫️Zest of one orange ▫️Splash of vanilla extract ▫️1 teaspoon of Stevia Mince Ingredients ▫️200g dried mixed fruit ▫️50g currants ▫️50g apricots ▫️Granny smith apple grated ▫️Juice of 2 oranges ▫️1 teaspoon of mixed spice ▫️¼ teaspoon nutmeg ▫️1 teaspoon of cinnamon Mince Method: ⏹️Bring all the ingredients together in a bowl and mix well. Leave for 2 hours or overnight for the fruit to soak up all those spicy juices. Pastry Method: ⏹️Measure all ingredients into mixing bowl (or food processor or bring together by hand) and mix speed 5 20 seconds. ⏹️Get 4 sheets of grease proof paper or baking paper at approx. 30cm long. ⏹️Scrape the pastry out of the bowl and onto the baking paper. Knead together into a ball and then cut in half. Put half of the mixture between two of the baking paper sheets and half between the other two. Roll the pastry out (so the pastry is in between the baking paper sheets) so its about 2mm thick. Pop in the fridge to chill for 10 mins or so, to make it easier to work with. ⏹️Once the pastry is cooled, peel off the top layer of baking paper and use a cutter (like an upside down glass) to cut out circles for the base of the pies. ⏹️If using a pie baking tray grease with coconut oil. ⏹️Add a heaped teaspoon of the mince mixture onto the pastry. Top with a pastry star or other shape. ⏹️Bake at 180 degrees for about 15 minutes or until nice and golden.
