PUMPKIN, SPINACH AND LENTIL LASAGNE



With Halloween tomorrow, you can't move in the supermarket for Pumpkins but rather than carving mine this year (because I am not safe at that), I opted to cook with it instead.

I've been in love with Pinterest over the past few months, if you'd like to see what I've been pinning please do give that a follow, and have come across countless delicious sounding and looking recipes. This lasagne is a take on a recipe I found over on there with a few tweaks to better suit me.

ADOPT DON'T SHOP | NATIONAL CAT DAY


The 29th October of each year is a very special day to me- it's National Cat Day (or so I am told by Google) and if there's something I love in life, it's cats. So much so that I adopted three of them. I love seeing social media swamped with cute cat pictures on this day (and indeed any day of the year) but it always fills me with a sense of cat broodiness and the whole 'just one more' *cue Puss in Boots of Shrek eyes*.

MY LOVE FOR OCADO & TOP VEGGIE/VEGAN PICKS


Image result for ocado


So, for some reason a few months ago, I received an email into my inbox inform me that Ocado were now delivering in my area. I guess I must have signed up for alerts way back and totally forgotten, but in any event, I decided to have a bit of a nosy on their site and see what they had to offer above and beyond my usual Sainsbury's delivery service.

BLOG SMOG


Blogging used to be something I adored, something I would plough hours into each week. A place where I could interact with like minded people and form real friendships. I started blogging in the summer of 2012 and continued pretty consistently until mid 2015, then things took a bit of a nosedive. I found myself no longer relating to many of the bloggers I'd previously loved catching up on posts from; as they grew, so did their budgets, with many of the products they wrote about being unattainable and their flash lifestyles unrealistic to the Average Joe with a 9-5 job and three cats (aka me). They became less personable, their lives less aligned with mine, as did the blogging community generally. I began to care less about faddy products, and more about more 'grown up', less material, topics.

TROPIC GOOD SKIN DAY RESURFACING SERUM


You may have seen my post of Tropic's Super Greens Serum a couple of weeks ago, where I spoke about all things Tropic and you can read that here for more information on the company and their ethos if you'd like to familiarise yourself a bit more, but for today, I'm just going to jump straight into the product itself.

BEE GOOD INTENSIVE HAND REPAIR


Hand cream is one of those things that I feel that a lot of people don't reach for until their hands are already in a sorry state. I've been guilty of it myself, because  nothing screams 'you need hand cream!' like tight red knuckles and dry itchy palms, but as I'm sure you've been told countless times by countless people, prevention is always better than cure.

TROPIC SUPER GREENS NUTRIENT BOOST SERUM


If I hear one more person resolving to eat better this year, I might just combust. Actually, that's a lie. If the motivation of a New Year is what you need to start a health kick, great, I'm all for it. Just please do not follow this up with the phrase 'New Year, new me', at least not out loud. Or to my face.
