Life: Strawberry Nutella French Toast Roll-Up

It was just another Saturday morning when I got ready to go to the tailor shop (yeah, that's totally a regular occurrence, nice one Ayre). Suddenly, my friend knocks on the door and asks me if I eat strawberries. Keeping it coy, I said "maybe ;)"... 

As soon as I enter the kitchen, I was greeted by a scene that resembles a prep kitchen. I was informed breakfast was being prepared for everyone in the household. Score! I was delighted that I didn't have to figure out what to eat.

As the dwelling area started to smell of pastries, I proofread the book I was working on while I waited for the heavenly delight that was to come.

Less than ten minutes later, I was presented with the amazing creation of my anonymous friend. She had the skills of a true chef, especially when it comes to her presentation.

If you'd like to re-create this recipe, my friend found it on Pinterest.


Beauty: My Morning Routine

Unlike many beauty bloggers, I do not have a endless supply of beauty products to use simply because I'm lazy. I've found the products I absolutely swear by and I am quite happy to stick with what I like for now.

Step 1: Wash my face with my Alba Botanica Hawaiian Facial Cleanser in the shower.
Step 2: Pour a few drops of The Body Shop Aloe Calming Toner onto a cotton pad and gently apply on my face.
Step 3: Once the toner dries, I apply my Alba Botanica Hawaiian Oil Free Moisturizer.

I wait for the moisturizer to dry for a couple minutes, and then I'm ready to apply my makeup :) Click here to find out how long it takes me to do my everyday makeup routine :)

Beauty: Makeup Timer Test

During one of my blogger's block last year, I came across a tag created by Lily Pebbles called the Makeup Timer Test! I thought it was really interesting and I've now just found the time to actually do it.

I think the results were pretty accurate. Since I'm not a pro, it does take me a bit of time to do even the simplest everyday makeup routine, which is what I did here. 

I really enjoyed this tag. I hope you did, as well. If you'd like to do this tag, I've pasted Lily Pebbles's rules below.
