New Gluten-Free Goodies.

Since going gluten free over two years ago I'm always on the look out for new products to try. Over the last 26 months I've seen the free-from world change and gradually this country is finally acknowledging the free from community. Supermarkets are starting to up their game and instead of stocking a tiny selection of cardboard-like bread, there is some choice now.

 Udi's is a brand I spoke about around Christmas time, they specialise in creating yummy gluten-free products that actually taste like the 'real' thing. Udi's kindly sent me a selection of their new products to try out. I've always been a huge fan of this brand since spotting it in my local supermarket last year and I', so excited to hear they are extending the range even further.

Udi's bagels are to die for. Last year I lived off them whilst I was placement, nothing can beat a warm bagel with proper butter. I actually like to warm mine up in the microwave so they turn lovely and soft and then smother in butter. Another product I'd tried before was the breakfast bars. I've had these in strawberry in the past and they certainly resemble a Nutri-grain bar. I find these are really handy to pop in my bag and eat on the way to work.

My sweet tooth was very pleased to see some treats in my sample pack. The blueberry muffins are amazing. These are so soft and moist and taste exactly like a good blueberry muffin should. Something else I should note is Udi's products don't do that annoying 'crumbly' thing that a lot of GF products do.

Finally my favourite product of them all. Chocolate wafers! I've not has wafers in so long and these reminded me of eating Kit-Kats back in my gluten-eating days. I will be picking up some more of these ASAP.

P.S. Luna really enjoyed the delivery too and had a whale of a time chewing the box!

*These products were kindly sent to me to review, as always, my opinion is my own.

Topshop Glow Cream Highlighter.

I've never been a huge fan of cream based beauty products but a few weeks back I tested the Topshop Glow Highlighter and I knew I needed to have it. I popped a bit of this on my cheek bones on a whim whilst shopping and kept catching glimpses of it during the day. I then swiftly dragged my friend back to Toppers and took this little baby home.

This is such a gorgeous product with just the right amount of highlight-ness. I love that you only need a tiny amount to blend it. It's such a subtle colour and adds the perfect amount of light to your skin. I've found this is great for applying under my eyebrows and in the corner of my eyes for added brightness too. 

If you're looking for a cheaper, long-lasting highlighter and fancy a little change from the regular powder forms, I'd certainly recommend this one.

OOTD: Kids Cat Shirt.

Shirt - H&M
Jeans - Warehouse*

Most the time being a tiny 5"2 drives me mad, but when it comes to buying clothes my size is on my side. H&M have some fab clothes in at the moment, but I spotted some even cuter clothes in the kids section. The children's range actually goes up to age 14, which I would argue size up to a 8-10 adult size. I spotted this cat shirt and knew I had to have it and when I saw the £5.99 price tag I ran to the till. I picked up this shirt and a floral shirt, both from the kids section for £5.99 each. Some of the clothes were a little to childish, but the majority were a smaller, cuter version of the adult range. 

So maybe being petite does have some perks - no VAT on clothes!
