I'm really excited to share with you today another one of my most favourite meals. You can find my previous recipes for chicken and mash, here and my homemade rice pudding, here. I absolutely love pasta, it's one of my favourite ingredients to use. Literally just about anything can be put with it. This quick and easy recipe, consists of just three ingredients and a little seasoning. Also a little garnish on top of you want to add something extra.

My Favourite Lipsticks

I have a huge love for lipsticks. Ever since I was little I remember I was always really intrigued by lipsticks and I would borrow some of my mums to try on. I think I ended up getting most of it on my face rather than on my lips, whilst licking most of it off! But from them on I have always loved a good lipstick. Over the years I have found out which shades seem to suit my skin tone best and which ones don't. I've found that really pale shades, don't seem to suit me as much. I do love a nice pink colour and coral too.

Whenever I go in to either Superdrug or Boots I just have to go look at them. I've put together a post of a few of my most favourite ones that I own and are always my go-to lipsticks. I will admit though, that when it comes to choosing a lipstick, I do tend to go for the same shade of lipstick. But I am going to try and break that habit and try out some different shades. It's only recently that I have started wearing red lipstick for instance. But I absolutely love it.

Sunday Thoughts | Clem Loves Is 5 Years Old!

It's only just over 2 weeks until Christmas day! I still need to do some Christmas shopping and get some Christmas cards! But it's on my to-do list for this next week. There is already some houses near where I live that have got their Christmas lights on and they look so pretty. I always used to love going for a drive and looking at all of the lovely Christmas lights and decorations on houses. It just adds that little bit of magic to the air. 

As you may have read in the title,I can't believe that my blog is now 5 years old! I still remember creating my blog and writing my first posts. I had however been blogging long before this one, I had a few websites that I created from a young age, but I am so proud of my little blog. It's amazing looking back and seeing how far I have come from my first posts on here. There were a few others, but I deleted them, oops! But you can check out the first post that is published on here still, here. I've also just realised how short my posts used to be!

I feel that the two main things that have improved over the years is my writing and photography. I love taking photos and I have learned so much over the years to improve my photography, I'm still learning even now. I will be doing a post very soon on how blogging has helped me, as I feel it's very important for me to recognise how important my blog is to me and how it has helped me greatly over the last few years. I've never really celebrated how old my blog is each year, but I just think that 5 is an awesome number and I have worked with some amazing brands over the last few years and I'm just really excited to see what is next for my little space on the internet!

Chocolate Brownie Christmas Pudding | Dairy, Wheat and Gluten Free

One thing I have never been too keen on is Christmas Pudding. I'm just not a fan of it. I always opt for something different when it comes to dessert at Christmas. I am however a huge fan of chocolate brownies, so when my nan gave me a kit to make your own chocolate brownie Christmas pudding, I was so happy! It is Dairy, wheat and gluten free and you can get it from Tesco. It comes in a box with a packet of brownie mix, a packet of icing sugar and a small pack of holly and berry confetti shapes. The pudding is really quick and easy to make and tastes delicious.

I really love that more supermarkets are catering more for people who can't have dairy, wheat and gluten. Tesco is also doing their free from chocolate selection box again and Morrisons have brought out some free from boxes of chocolates for Christmas too. I've also noticed that the free from calendars have gone really quick this year too. It's nice to be able to have a wider variety of food to have at Christmas. Usually, I would most likely end up having what I would have any other time of the year, but it's nice to be able to eat more Christmassy things. I also picked up a while back a free from selection box of crackers from Morrisons, which I am really excited to try. I do love some crackers with dairy free cheese!
