New year, new food

13 Jan

Happy 2015 Glamourites!!

I can’t believe how fast the last year flew by, it really shows you that you must treasure each moment because one day you will look back on it and miss it. One of my new years resolutions is to have a more balanced lifestyle, I am not saying I want to eat healthy or only eat greens because hey, we all know that that is impossible. My plan is to keep everything in perspective while trying my best and rewarding myself from time to time with maybe a burger or pizza. We all have those cravings and if we don’t indulge in them now and then it can have a worse backlash effect. Having said all that here is an amazing salad recipe I am definitely going to be trying this week along with a “healthy” tasty dessert!

That Hump Day Treat

11 Sep

Hello Glamourites,

Seeing as it is hump day it seems only right to bake yourself up a little something yummy with chocolate! This recipe I found through a blog called Just A Taste , which they have many delicious food inspiration and a helpful search index. Pecans are probably one of my favourite nuts and they work so perfectly in many baking recipes such as this, but also in cookies, granola and salads. This recipe in particular doesn’t require many crazy ingredients and is fast to prepare making it an easy dish to whip up last minute for guests. I hope you all are having a fabulous week and this only makes it sweeter xx Glamour Planner
