tumblr_ltgldxK5mR1r1jy8no1_500

I’ve always loved Family Guy, but never really taken much notice of The Cleveland Show. It was being aired quite often before Family Guy this month, so I decided to watch it a few times, and I actually quite enjoyed it!

Disco-Zoo-642x856

This game was recommended to me by a friend earlier this month, and needless to say, I’ve become addicted.

Laksa is a spicy asian noodle soup, and even though I love asian food, for some reason I’ve never tried laksa. I tried it for the first time this month, and absolutely loved it!

beauty favourites april 2014

I’ve been looking for the perfect pastel pink nail polish for a while now, and I found this one while out shopping! It’s a really lovely colour and it compliments my skin tone really well! I bought this Victoria’s Secret Fragrance Mist a few months ago, but never really fell in love with it until this month! It smells sweet, but not sickly, and I really love it! I’ve wanted a brow mascara for a few months, and found this one online! It works really well, and doesn’t make my eyebrows feel crispy!

9. What was your favourite song?

– YELLOW MADNESS BY MIGHTY MIKE

I found this song on Tumblr a few months ago, and rediscovered it this month! I love Coldplay and Muse, so this is the perfect mashup.

I stumbled across this recipe a few days ago, and I just had to try it out! There are very few ingredients, and the method is very simple!

YOU WILL NEED:

– 1 cup of baking soda

– 1/4 cup of salt (preferably epsom salt)

– 1/4 cup of water

– 1 teaspoon of lemon juice

1. WEAR GLOVES

/

Make sure you wear gloves when doing this recipe, as the ingredients can dry your hands!

2. MIX THE DRY INGREDIENTS

/

Mix the baking soda and the salt together with your hands until they’re well combined.

3. MIX THE WET INGREDIENTS

/

Mix the lemon juice and the water until they’re well combined, and then transfer them into a spray bottle.

4. START SPRAYING

/

Carefully spray the wet ingredients into the bowl, making sure to mix it every now and then.

5. ADD THE ESSENTIAL OIL

/

At this stage, feel free to add a few drops of your favourite essential oil to add a scent to your bath bombs.

6. CHECK THE CONSISTENCY

/

Once you’ve finished spraying on the wet ingredients and made sure everything has been mixed well, press the mixture into your hand – if the mixture forms a shape that doesn’t crumble, you are ready to start putting your ingredients into the moulds.

7. PLACE INTO MOULDS

/

Place an even amount of mixture into each moulds and press down firmly with your fingers to make sure everything is compact.

8. WAIT

/

Leave the bath bombs to dry overnight in a cool, dry place.

9. REMOVE FROM MOULDS

/

Carefully remove the bath bombs from their moulds, trying not to break them.

10. ENJOY

/

Feel free to experiment with the essential oils you use, or even with different colours!

Please let me know if you enjoyed this post, and I’ll continue to make similar ones in the future!
