Happy Easter everyone! As you are reading this post I will most likely be stuffing my face with chocolate…
Dairy free and gluten free chocolate that is! I thought that as it’s Easter Sunday I would do a catch up/chatty type post. I am obsessed with those little chicks in the photo above and the photos below. My mum got some of the little chicks and gave me some, so I just had to include them in some photos for Easter.
I’m currently on a two week break at the moment from University, for the Easter break. Although I do still have quite a bit of work to get done still. But I’ve also made some time so I can just sit back and chill. This means that I will have mostly been binging on TV shows on Netflix, Catching up with The Walking Dead and Z Nation! Oh and not forgetting Pretty Little Liars. Once again the diet has been non existent! Oops. But as soon as I’ve eaten all of my chocolate, the diet will once again commence. I think also as the weather gets more warmer I always feel more like eating salads. When the weather is cold, I just like to eat anything!
One thing I am looking forward to now it’s Spring, is lighter evenings. I always feel that the day seems to last just that little bit longer when the clocks go forward. Although we do loose an hour, (less time in bed!) I do enjoy the evenings better. I love it when the different types of flowers start blooming, Daffodils, Tulips and Snowdrops. I also love when the trees start to get their leaves grow back again, so beautiful.
I’ve got quite a few ideas for different posts for Clemloves. I am obsessed and a huge lover of books. I love collecting them. You may have seen recently that I did a new book review. This is something I’ve been wanting to do more of on Clemloves for quite sometime, so definitely expect to see more book reviews on here. This week my nan got me a book called Carry On by Rainbow Rowell, so I’m really excited to start reading this. I’m also going to be doing a few more beauty and recipe posts. I love cooking and baking and I’m always on the lookout for new gluten, wheat and dairy free recipes to try. These are a few things coming soon to Clemloves, as I would definitely like to add lots more recipes to my blog.
If you read one of my recent posts Project Spring Clean, you will know that I have recently been trying to get my room sorted, as I am a bit of a hoarder! I collect so much stuff! I always feel so much better when I have a nice clean, organised room. I have actually made quite a lot of progress on this, there’s still a little bit more to do, for example, sort my bed side table draws out and also my desk draws. I’ve collected quite a lot of different things over the years and they really do need a good sorting out! But it’s getting there. I’m definitely feeling a lot better now it’s nearly done. I also got my wardrobe done and sorted out the clothes I want and don’t want.
My desk is also starting to look a lot better. A while ago I decided to up-cycle a desk and give it a lick of paint. Although it doesn’t look as tidy now as it did in the blog post I did. But I have however managed to get it a bit more organised. Underneath my desk I have placed all of my Uni books, printer and printing paper under there. On the top of my desk I have my planner and pens etc. I’m trying to keep it much more organised now, it’s just the draws that need a little sorting out. I also added a new addition to my desk, an Aloe Vera plant, (keep a look out for my Aloe Vera in upcoming blog posts!) I do still need to get a new pot for it though. I’ve always loved having different Cacti and Succulents, I used to have quite a lot when I was younger. As soon as I saw my Aloe Vera plant, I knew I had to have it, (it was love at first sight!)
I recently turned 26 this month, but one thing that has definitely made me feel older today, was that I saw on Twitter that Toy Story was released 20 years ago this week! That’s crazy… 20 years! One of my favourite things I love to do is listen to Absolute Radio’s 90’s station. So much nostalgia. I also love to listen to theme songs of tv shows I used to watch when I was little. I recently liked a Facebook group that purely posts theme songs/adverts etc from years ago. I love it. Anyone remember Diggit? My favourite shows on there were Goof Troop and Recess. They just don’t make kids television like they used to anymore! Also do you remember SMTV Live! My all time favourite show. So many good memories. I’m definitely going to be doing a blog post on all of my favourite things from when I was little!
Looking for something tasty and Easter inspired to make? Last year I baked some little bunny shaped biscuits and posted the recipe on my blog, click here to view the recipe. I love baking and I’ve been seeing so many delicious recipes that are Easter inspired. I am especially loving these recipes that Zoe has posted on her blog, I’m definitely going to have to try these, but obviously make them dairy, wheat and gluten free. Also if you have got any left over chocolate from Easter, here is a delicious recipe I posted on my blog a while ago, Chocolate and Orange Bread and Butter Pudding.
