Getting Set Up for The Day
I'm more usually found with a smoothie at breakfast time but sometimes I like to change it up a bit. The temperatures have really dropped in the last few days and I've had more of an appetite than normal - I blame that on MoFo and all the amazing food I've been drooling over! So, this morning I decided a big, warming bowl of porridge was in order. Stirred in is apple sauce and golden syrup with a sprinkling of cinnamon on the top.
I always wait until I get to work to start on the coffee. Recently I've been starting the day with this Beautiful Skin Tea by Neal's Yard. After never suffering from spots as a teenager I went and developed acne when I hit my 40's and have tried lots of things in the last 2 years to clear it with no luck. About a month ago I started drinking this every morning and I also changed my foundation to mineral makeup from ELF which I read about on Vanilla Sugar blog and also started using this. I don't know if it's one of them or the combination but my skin has completely cleared up and I'm delighted. Check out ELF, they often have massive discount sales, I got everything in my order for half price.
I've also been using coconut oil as a moisturiser on the advice of the Bowen therapist I've been seeing who also told me about using it on toast instead of margarine. I can totally recommend this idea, it's delicious. I like it best with a layer of coconut oil topped with home made Orange and Chilli Marmalade. What sort of things do you like for breakfast in the cold weather?
