Healthy Oat Cookies

So I love biscuits so much , their my guilty pleasure but once I start eating them I cant stop :( so I decided I wanted to continue having them as my guilty pleasure just minus the guilt. :D

Tools
  • mixing bowl
  • whisk
  • measuring cups and spoons
  • tray
  • grease proof paper (optional )


Ingredients
 
  • 1 cup of oats
  • 50g of dried cranberries (optional )
  • flaked almonds ( optional )
  • 1/2 cup of almond milk *
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 tsp of almond essence (optional )
  • sprinkle of cinnamon
  • some amount of oil for the tray
* if you don't have almond milk mix some low fat milk with the tsp of almond essence
 
 
Method
  • Preheat oven to 190 degrees
  • Add all the dry ingredients to the mixing bowl ( oats, cranberries, flaked almonds, baking powder, cinnamon )
  • Then add the wet ingredients ( milk , egg white , vanilla and almond essence )
  • Mix well with whisk
  • Grease the tray with the oil ( you could use butter either )*
* I wouldn't recommend using the grease proof paper as the cookies tend to stick to it and crumble but if you want to be extra healthy you can try with the paper just use a spatula while they are hot to remove them
  • Cook for 20 minutes
  • Leave them to cool before placing them in a container

 
Result  
 
 
eat and enjoy guilt free :D

Disappointment

So I wanted to take a step back from beauty and fashion for this post and right something almost 'real' . Today I got some incredible disappointing news . It was one of those things that killed me inside but would have been like water of a ducks back to someone else outside the situation. My biggest emotion was disappointment. After crying for hours I began to think of the term disappointment  and to me it feels like you have been kicked in the stomach several times and living you worst nightmare that never ends.

After eating every sugary food in the house I remember being like ''why me ? ''. I'm sure these three little words go through everyone's head in a bad situation, you see yourself as this good person who didn't deserve this big downfall and you want to know why. You deserve to know why. You don't need to hear the favourite quote ''everything happens for a reason '' , you worked hard for this and you deserved for it to work out. What happened to ' Hard work pays off ? ''. So after sitting there being to full to move from the comfort eating I realised that maybe I hate that cliché quote because maybe its true its some weird universe that you have to accept . As hard as it was for me to understand maybe I wasn't ready to move on and this disappointment had the ability to stop me whether I liked it or not.
 
Unfortunately though I didn't want to accept it , I wanted to move on with my life , to get out of this town and find adventure, freedom .  I didn't want to spend another year doing the same thing everyday in wishful hopes of next year will be my year. In the end your brain finally finds it way to you and shows you the light from under the tunnel you just have to find it. I started researching other ways around my disappointment and becoming a little happier as I pushed the hurt away.


I guess the point of this post is that as hurtful disappointment can be crying and getting upset only helps for a little while. Yes it makes you feel better at the time but long term you're still stuck at the start of you tunnel. I'm only beginning to dig myself out and I haven't found the light but I'm a lot closer to it now then I was with mascara webs down my face. 

 
 
I picked this picture because it was all I wanted to do today. I wanted to pick up my house I move somewhere away from the disappointment , I wanted to hide away in hopes that it would go away but unfortunately balloons deflate , burst and you come crashing down to realisation . You have to face the hurt to make it better.

No 7 Calm Skin

Do you ever find yourself in an uncomfortable situation and feeling embarrassed , you can feel yourself boiling up and your cheeks turning red . On some girls this is classified as cute but not for me unless you would consider a red hot tomato cute.
 This was a major problem for me and I had to do something about it and then I found this .
no 7 calm skin redness - relief balm

I found this cream a great help. Whenever  I was put in uncomfortable situations like being called out in class for the answer or reading, even talking about boys that I didn't even have a crush on . I hated being like that it was so embarrassing and uncomfortable because I could feel my skin burning up but there was nothing I could do about it .
Unfortunately for me not only was I unlucky to be like this but it was also unavoidable as it was in my family passed down from generation my mum has it and so does my aunt. I had the worst reactions because of my anxiety I would panic about my skin flaring up and them think to much about that situation and what everyone was thinking about me rather then trying to calm myself down and focussing on myself .
I bought this cream hoping for a miracle and have never looked back . It hasn't preformed a complete miracle as I still feel myself getting hot and sweaty in those situations still but it has reduced the redness in my skin hugely.
 


You apply the cream on top of your moisturizer and its not greasy at all . I have oily skin so I have to be careful of the amount of creams I apply to my skin . This cream sinks in perfectly after a few minutes I even can apply my primer on top of it then.
This cream helped the appearance of my skin hugely including scars I would have left after spots.
If you apply the cream morning and evening after cleansing it will have a long term effect on your skin.
