I love trying new products and I’d heard amazing things about these on Instagram. They didn’t disappoint!!
I’ve got quite oily skin, so the first one I tried was the moisture matte moisturiser with apricot, olive, anise, lemongrass & vitamins.
“Most people with oily skin feel they do not need a moisturiser. Understandable, but not true. MOISTURE MATTE is a state of the art product – a remarkable oil and water free gel-lotion that is modern, matte, pure cashmere to the touch, and makes the skin look and feel so very good. It has been formulated with microsponges that work all day to absorb excess sebum, giving your skin a matt look.”
Advanced, high performance formula
Mops up excess oil
Antioxidant, antiseptic and antiviral properties
Lightweight, water free, gel-lotion
Skin feels like cashmere soft, cool and fresh
Fantastic makeup base to lock on foundation
I was really impressed with this, my skin felt really smooth and soft and it did help to keep my face more matte. Would defo buy again!!
Then I tried the face wash. Way to go it’s called. This is gorgeous, smells amazing and made my skin feel so clean!! £19 and lasts ages!
“Cooling and oh-so refreshing. This cool, refreshing rinse-off gel will remove grime, makeup and excess seburm, leaving your pores flushed and squeaky clean. Oily skin needs a regime of incredibly lightweight, low greasy products to keep oil at bay and skin feeling cool and fresh – the WAY TO GO formula does just that. It also feels oh so good to use.”
Removes excess sebum
Antiseptic and antibacterial
Removes eye makeup
Soothes skin irritations
Stimulating and cooling
Targets problem oily skin areas
Advanced airless pump bottle – hygienic and no waste
Never without it! My skin is so greasy and is the only wash I have ever used that makes my skin feel “clean”
Next was the TONING ESSENCE, £16 200ml
Again, lovely product, really had that spa feel to it.
“Mediterranean skin refreshment! Every smart skincare ritual starts with a good cleanse. TONING ESSENCE is the second important step in this cleansing process – refining and toning the skin. It ensures a double cleanse by removing deeply embedded debris and final traces of cleanser. It also helps restore the natural balance of your skin.
A beautiful tonic water (without the alcohol) that will leave the skin squeaky clean, not squealing ‘ouch’! Our favourite juice and salad recipes inspired the ingredient list, including such Mediterranean staples such as tomatoes, basil, orange, lime, lemon, mandarin, ginger, lavender and melon. The fragrance sends you off to sunnier climes!”
Instant skin refreshment
Restores natural PH balance
Anti-itch, calming & soothing
No ‘ouch’ formula
Cools hot skin
Helps ‘set’ makeup
Great for all skin types
I love this product! I never used to tone as I found other toners too harsh on my skin. Toning Essence is really gentle, refreshing and leaves your skin feeling super clean. Love it!!
Last but not least I used the PURIFICATION mask £25 85g
It’s not cheap but it does the trick. If you’ve got oily skin you’ll love it!!
“A vacuum cleaner for the skin. This is a superb rich face mask made from land and marine mud and natural extracts known for their dislike of blocked pores, blackheads and other irritating effects cased by oily skin. PURIFICATION has been specifically designed to tackle oily skin problems by keeping oil at bay and leaving the skin clean, cool and refreshed. Includes spatula.”
Effective spot and blackhead treatment
Deep cleansing properties
Flushes out grime from blocked pores
Sophisticated, high performance formula
Skin feels cool, refreshed, clean, oil free
Rich in minerals from land and sea
Professional spa mask formula

Hi everyone. It’s been a while since I’ve done a beauty blog. I have got to tell you all though about my recent finds!!!!!
I’ve always been a big fan of Mac make up. I can’t always stand the hoards of tennagaers though when I’m trying to buy some! I prefer now to order my mac stuff online instead! I’d been doing some Instagram research on bronzers. There’s a few amazing make up artists I follow on there and one was raving about a bronzer by Mac. I had to have it!! I usually use benefit hoola bronzer but fancied a change. It’s called give me sun, that’s exactly what it does!!! My h2b came home and said, “wow you look brown!!” Love it when a product delivers on it’s promise. He thought I’d had a sun bed or fake tan on. New fav!!!!! I also got some new eyeshadows in a reddy colour. So gorgeous for a change, one is called coppering and the other cranberry. I’d also been on the hunt for the perfect contouring powder. I’ve used tons of different ones now, cream ones, eyeshadow colours, brozners etc etc…… I read that mac baby don’t go was a brilliant contour powder. It is!!!!! I love it!!! It’s more of an ash tone, so ideal to contour. Totally hooked!!! I also finally got my hand on the mac lipstick called velvet teddy. Thanks to Kylie Jenner this is usually sold out everywhere!! I managed to find mine on eBay. The lip liner whirl goes amazing with it!! You can over draw your lips to make them look bigger, just like Kylie (or have your lips done just like Kylie!)
My next find is a recent one, a new mascara by loreal called mega volume, miss magna. I’ve tried every mascara you can think of, so far this is one of the best and mega cheap!!! It does pack a lot of the mascara on to the brush, make sure you scrap some off. Two coats and my lashes looked so long!!!! Was really impressed.
I’ve also found this brand of fake tan. I’ve not used it yet but I’ve read raves reviews on it!! I’ll keep you posted, I got the scrub pre prep, moisturiser and the tan in dark. It’s by cocoa brown.
If you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to mac, NYX is really good!! I’m loving this lip liner in mauve and their matte nude lipstick. In usually wear red or a brighter pink but I really love this nude shade for a change. I’ve had a few compliments on it. More natural.
I needed some more make up storage. I’d spotted something on Instagram but when I googled it there were £100!! I found the same thing on eBay for just £14. Picture in the blog, it’s fab for nail varnishes, eyeshadows and lipsticks. It looks really cool too 🙂
I wanted to try a new under eye concealer too. I’ve got the mac one and a few others but my touché eclat had run out. I bought the new one by tropic. I never really know if I can see much difference with this sort of highlighting concealer but this one does seem to rally brighten up your under eye. I really like the brand, I’ve used their face cream and scrub before.
A few other things in the pics are just standard things I buy a lot.
Any questions just shout.
I’m currently trying to decide whether to have a make up artist for my wedding or just do my own!?! I know what products I love and I know how to make it look pretty decent, I’m worried I won’t get the right look if I use a mua, plus it saves money to spend on other things. We’ve already blown the budget!! I might pop to mac and book a bridal trail for recommendations on different colours. No doubt I’ll spend a fortune there anyway!!

Hi all. If you haven’t heard about or seen this product on fb, where have you been?!?! So this is the best selling 3D Fiber Lashes, it states it will dramatically enhance and magnify the appearance of your lashes.
The process combines applying a Transplanting Gel and then coating your lashes with the Natural Fibers to help create the appearance of incredible thickness and volume to your existing lashes. The 3D Fiber Lashes are water resistant but easily wash off with warm water and a face wash.
I’ve heard mainly good things about this mascara, I have also heard a view more negative ones. It seems to be everywhere right now!!!! I was very excited when mine arrived. The case the two wands come in is really nice!! I read the instructions and went for it. It needed two coats of each for maximum impact in my opinion. I actually said out loud when I was applying it, “OMG wow!!!!!” They were noticeably longer!! Not mega thick, but certainly longer. I think there’s a skill to applying it correctly, I’d recommend not using your own mascara first personally. The fibres can flake off if you aren’t really careful, you need to make sure you quickly apply the gel wand straight after the fibres to help prevent this. They didn’t smudge though or irate my eyes, I just simply swept them away.
My honest review is it’s a fab mascara, really cleaver and classy packaging. Would I wear it every day? I don’t think I would, it does take slightly longer to apply, so for me it’s more of a luxury item that I’d use for nights out rather than messing about with false lashes. It would make a really lovely present for your girly friends or family members. I’ve always been mega mega fussy about mascaras, Ive used millions of different brands and this would be up there with one of the best.
If you’d like to order one please follow the link to a really lovely knowledgeable seller who will be happy to help you all. They also offer a money back guarantee if you don’t love it too.

Hi all. So I’ve always loved a face mask! My love for them started when I was little, I’d steal/borrow my moms Avon ones. Do you remember them? They were a fruit based really thin clear mask, you had to literally meal it off after?! God knows if they actually did anything!! I then progressed to lush ones, which were fab, but dried up in the pots really quickly. I then tried all sorts of high street brands, all ok but not amazing. I then moved to dermalogica masks, again these were nice, but not amazing. I never really noticed any difference?!
I read about glam glow mask in a magazine, it’s an award winning mask and loved by celebs, well of course this meant I had to try it!! I did some research as it’s not cheap! I liked what I read so I ordered it, I actually got it a bit cheaper from eBay. Always make sure it’s a genuine, sealed and brand new product when buying off eBay. I’ve got some of my magic hair dust I love before from eBay, er it was actually talc!! Cheeky b*****s. I’ve also bought perfume before which actually smelt like that perfume you made as a kid, you know the one with rose petals and water! Never again. This was a genuine seller with loads of positive feedback.
So it arrived and I got very excited! I applied a thin layer and sat for 10 minutes. The mask tingles slightly, be careful as it is quite grainy, you don’t want it in your eye! It started to dry and I looked like I’d just done a bootcamp! You scrub it slightly for an exfoliating effect and rinse off with warm water. My skin felt so smooth and my make up looked fab after!! Finally a face mask that actually makes a difference!! It’ll last ages too, so I’m my opinion it’s worth the money.
Here’s the official info on it:-

Hi all. So I had amazing day yesterday!! My boyfriend and I both had the day off and went to London. I really wanted to go to Winder Wonderland in Hyde Park, but I also really really wanted to test out these amazing new products I’d heard about. They only sell it at Libertys in London or online so I combined the two. My bf thinks I conned him with winter wonderland ha ha.
I’d read about this brand, Hourglass, in one of my magazines. Cameron Diaz was raving about saying it was the best thing she had ever used. Then I was chatting to a lady who’s travelled the world doing various beauty treatments, she’s stunning and a total pro. She was telling me about this new brand of make up she’d found, I knew what she was going to say! It was Hourglass! She’d been to Libertys to test it out too. she’s so like me, she wanted to be able to really see a difference after using a new product. From the second she had it tested on her she was sold!! I was exactly the same! I’d read about the powders and the primers. The primer is Libertys best seller and the powders are stunning!!!! I went for these two items :-
This is the description from the website. “This silky, weightless and multipurpose primer goes beyond traditional formulations by concealing redness, minimizing the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles, and shielding skin with Broad Spectrum SPF 15 protection. In addition, it repels water to keep your make up looking freshly applied all day long.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
• Extends the durability of any foundation or powder.
• Minimizes the appearance of visible pores, fine lines and imperfections.
• Conceals redness (even rosacea) to create an even skin tone.
• The weightless formula is not greasy, tacky, pearlized and it won’t ball up
• The unique texture is fluid, airy, silky and cushiony.
• Offers Broad Spectrum SPF 15 with mineral-derived physical sunscreens, Titanium and Zinc Oxide.”
Ambient lighting palette. I had this tested on me and I adored it!!!! This is the description. “Create your perfect light with this palette featuring three shades of Ambient Lighting Powder, which utilize Photoluminescent Technology to filter out harsh light and refine the appearance of the complexion. Each of these high-tech, soft-focus finishing powders recreate an exquisitely flattering light source. The powders can be applied individually or layered to imbue skin with a multidimensional glow.
• Powders mimic universally flattering light sources, not unlike having a personal lighting technician at your disposal.
• By manipulating and filtering out harsh light, powders conceal skin imperfections, pores and wrinkles.
• State-of-the-art formula delivers a multi-dimensional luminescence to every skin tone, making it appear softer, younger and perfectly lit.
• Universal powders make them suitable for every skin tone, while each can be worn day and night.
• The finishing powders enhance skin in any type of light, including flash photography.
My palette includes 3 shades:
• DIM LIGHT: A neutral peach beige powder that blurs imperfections and highlights a radiant complexion with the perfect balance of warm and cool tones.
• INCANDESCENT LIGHT (exclusive to the palette): An opalescent pearl powder that brightens the complexion with a celestial glow.
• RADIANT LIGHT: A sun-kissed golden beige that enhances the overall complexion with believable, subtle warmth, and also extends a summer glow.
This goes over your foundation. I’m so happy I went and tried them out! Now I really want to test the foundation too!! I got a free lipstick as I’d bought two products, it was a lovely nude colour, so that was a bonus!!
Winter wonderland was stunning!! Beats any Xmas market I’ve been to! If you’re trying to lose weight though it’s a bit of a nightmare!! There was temptation on every stand! It was literally like food porn!! From sausages, burgers, fries, pulled pork batches, Nutella waffles, crepes, churrios and much more!!!! I’d had a big breakfast, taken fruit and hi fi bars for my HEB. We went to itsu for lunch, I had a chicken teriyaki brown rice pot with veg in it. There’s oil in them and some sauce but overall it was a really low calorie option and could of been a lot worse. My bf had an amazing waffle with Nutella at Hyde park. I did have a taste but that’s it! I stood there with a satsuma!! I would of loved a waffle but it would of been gone in seconds and I know I’d of felt bad after. I avoided the mulled wine and just had a tea and 1/2 beer. The shops were open till 9pm so we left the market and went back to the shops!!! I didn’t want to drink much as I’m doing my group tonight instead of Thursday.
I was only meant to be buying the make up but I accidentally fell in to some other shops too, whoops!! I bought a lovely necklace which was reduced to £4 from £12, I never get anything in the sale usually, as I hate sales!! I can’t stand looking through rails of stuff I’d probably actually never even wear. I spotted some shoes I liked too so grabbed them, they were also in the sale, winner!! I love chunky heeled shoes, skinny heels aren’t great for day time and I wanted them to wear with blue jeans in the day. I then saw a dress which was so me!! I have a particular style of dress that I’m obsessed with. It looked quite big so I tried the 8 and it fitted!! I’m not a size 8 but who cares!! I’ll take that and run!!! I might wear this nye so no picture of it yet, sorry.
We didn’t get back till 9pm so we were shattered!! This meant dinner was a quick chicken stir fry, which was actually really nice!! It’s always nice to buy new things but my favourite part about yesterday was just spending the day with my amazing boyfriend, soppy I know, but true!! Having a partner who also loves to shop is the best thing ever!! Plus he’s so good at navigating!! We walked for absolutely miles and I didn’t moan once!! Men seem to have this weird sense of direction that I’ve certainly not got!! I’d of been completely lost if it wasn’t for him. It was a really lovely romantic day.
If you haven’t been to winter wonderland it’s on till the beginning of January and I’d highly recommend it for a fun day or night out. Just be prepared food wise if you’re trying to make good choices.
Have a lovely day and happy Xmas eve eve xxxx
So it’s nearly the end of 2014! Where’s the year gone? I’ve put a list together of all my favourite beauty buys this year. Any questions just ask.
So the first one is Kokoso coconut moisturiser. My cousins wife created this and sent me a freebie as I’m family 🙂 It’s designed for babies so,it’s 100% natural, but adults can use it too. The owner sent one to Katie price for her new baby, she adored it and also used it on herself! My favourite use for it is a pre tan moisturiser. Your tan goes on so smoothly. It smells amazing!! Gorgeous Xmas present if you’re stuck for ideas! Check out her fb page or website http://www.kokoso.co.uk
Sally Hanson spray on air brush legs. I’m adore this stuff!!! It covers any little bruises or blemishes and makes your legs look really smooth and tanned. Just make sure you spray it in a bathroom as it can be messy! I spray it on to a mitt then apply it.
Elemis skin care. I started using this recently and it’s gorgeous. I like the marine range the best so far. It smells lovely and makes your skin feel really soft. It’s very hydrating and has anti ageing qualities too. Ticks all my boxes!!
GHD air hair dryer. I had a small amount of great lengths hair extensions added to my hair, purely to thicken it up. The only downside was how long it then took to dry!!! So after reading loads of reviews I got this hair dryer. This is what it claims to do, “Get gorgeous hair in half the time* with the ghd air® professional hairdryer. Its powerful 2,100W professional-strength motor and patented removable air filter deliver high pressure air flow for super-fast drying, while advanced ionic technology reduces frizz and flyaways to give a smooth salon-style finish in half the time*. Variable power and temperature controls, plus the choice of two nozzles, allow you to tailor your blow-dry to your hair type, while a cool shot button helps lock your finished style in place with a blast of cold air. The ghd air® is also a breeze to use thanks to an ergonomic design that makes it comfortable to hold for both left and right-handed users, and a 3m long power cable that gives total flexibility as you style. The ghd air® is compatible with the ghd air® diffuser.” Did it disappoint, hell no!! My hair did dry so much quicker and it really does make it smoother. I got this hair dryer and the elemis cream from http://www.hairandbeautygallery.co.uk
While we’re on hair I had a set of ghds die on me so I got some Remington sleek and smooth hair straighteners from Argos, a friend recommended them for me. OMG they are amazing!! Now my hair is thicker these are perfect!! The plates are really wide and you can adjust the temperature setting which I love. I’d highly recommend these if you need a cheaper set, or a spare set. I still have my ghds because you can curl your hair with them too, but I use these for if I just want my hair straight.
This next product someone at my hair dressers told me about. I wanted something that was like Moroccan oil but better! He told me about kerastase nectar or thermique. It’s amazing! You only need a tiny amount on wet hair but it makes your hair so soft and smooth, the added bonus is it decreases drying time and also has a built in heat protector!! Winner! No need for a separate heat defence spray! It’s lasted me ages!!!!!!
I’ve always worn black eyeliner but thought I’d give this a whirl for a change. Benefit eye bright pencil. The idea is the white colour soft kohl gives you a wider eye look. It’s so good and looks really natural. I only wear this now for my day time look. It isn’t cheap, but it’s not as harsh as just a regular white eyeliner.
My boyfriend bought me some joe Malone perfume. My ultimate fav is alien, but he wanted to buy me something different. I’ve got tom ford, chanel etc so he knows I like really strong distinctive perfumes. They’d just bought out their wood sage and sea salt range, it is stunning!!!!! I adore it!!! It last for ages and really stands out from other boring perfumes!! If you’ve never tried Joe Malone you’re missing out!
I read in a magazine about rose oil. Molly King raves about it, so I thought I’d give it a whirl, it’s so cheap too!! Verdict? It’s a fantastic product!!! Face oils worried me, I thought it would make my skin really oily. It didn’t at all!! The one I love is Superfacialist Rose Miracle Makeover Facial Oil. It’s even suitable for really sensitive skin. The creator has had over 15 years experience creating these products and it’s raved about in the beauty industry. At £14.99 its well worth giving it a go if you haven’t already!! I’ll use it forever!! I do get told I don’t look my age, so maybe this helps!!
I love a good eyeshadow pallet. You cannot beat urban decays naked palette. If you love a smokey eye, this is for you!! The nuder shades I wear in the day, the shimmery one I use on my brow bone and in the corners of my eye, then the darker colours in the crease on a night out.
I wanted to find a really good primer, a beautician I go to told me about mac prep and prime. She said it’s just as good as any more expensive high end primer. I love Mac make up so thought I’d try it. Again I will use this forever!! I didn’t think primers actually made much difference but they really do! It’s an ultra-fluid lotion formulated with special-effect silicones. It calms and soothes the skin, blots away excess oil, and evens out skin redness. What I love is it also improves the look of your foundation or powder.
Talking of foundation. My favourite all time foundation is Estée Lauder double wear. It is a thick foundation but my god it does the trick!!! Never sleep in it though!! It’s a very long lasting foundation, the claim is 15 but I’d say it would probably stay on longer!! It’s got a high coverage and you can build it up gradually if you prefer. If you want a matte, air brush look I’d highly recommend this!!! Get your colour matched properly though as I’ve gone too dark before and it didn’t look as nice.
Concealers next! Don’t ever waste your money on expensive ones ever again!!! All you need is collection 2000 lasting perfection!! It’s won loads of beauty awards and any good make up artist will say they love it too!! It’s got a high pigmented and covers flaws, imperfections and blemishes for up to 16 hours. It’s water-resistent and transfer proof. Use it under your eyes or to conceal any imperfections. Spend the money you save or more make up 😉
Last but not least is my eyelash serum. I had a bad experience with some semi permanent lash extensions. They basically left me with no lashes!!! After a major freak out a gorgeous beauty and skin care specialist I know told me about this. Revitalash eye lash serum. I put it on every night and before I knew it my lashes were actually longer than before!!! The lady who told me about it uses it and I honestly thought her lashes were false, she actually now has to trim them! It isn’t cheap but it’s worth it!!
So there you go!! What’s your favourite product of 2014?? I’m up for finding more for 2015 🙂
Have a fab evening and Happy Fopping xxx
Well that was an eventful weekend!! It’s my birthday Monday, so I celebrated with my girls last night. I’m usually the last one standing but not this time. I was the first to leave! Unheard of! Not been out out for ages and my god I can’t handle it any more!! Thankfully my amazing boyfriend cooked me a full sw breakfast and bought me lots of tea while I wanted X factor, still a bit drunk! I actually dragged myself to asda to get out of the house. Food shopping when you’re hungry and hungover is a dangerous combo!! Even though it’s my bday and I could eat for England, I just had some walkers squares for 5.5 syns and then went to my fav coffee shop and bought 2 sw friendly brownies 🙂 a hazelnut one and a peppermint and marshmallow one, my absolute favourite!!!!! 3 syns each!
When you’ve got something to aim for are you more focused? I am big time. I had this dress I really wanted to wear so I’ve been totally on it! Hitting the protein and tons and tons of veggies! I’ll pop some pics of my recent meals up. Syns have been low, except for wine! It paid off as I actually felt quite good last night. I’m going to start doing more weights too. I love gym classes but my god did I ache after using the squat rack this week!! It’s the way forward I think!!
So I’ve bought more clothes and make up recently, shock! I literally love love love shopping!!!!! I’ll pop pictures of it all on this post. I had my hair coloured ombre recently, because I was so blonde though it needed refreshing. So I had that done yesterday and a curly blow dry, this is my favourite way to wear my hair, I just wish I could do it myself!!! My moms bought me a ghd hairdryer for my bday so Im dead excited to use that! I also had a st tropez treatment which was fab! I bought this charlotte tilbury mascara everyone raves about. It needs a few coats, but it builds really nicely!! I really like it but I’m not sure it’s any better than my usual loreal one, yet it’s twice the price.
Tomorrow for my actual birthday I’ve got the day off so I’m heading to a spa for the day! So excited and it’s certainly needed after this weekend!!! I’ve added on a massage alongside the facial, heaven!!!!!!!!! Then in the evening my brothers cooking a sw meal for us all as opposed to getting a take away. How lovely is that.
Talking of lovely my gorgeous man is currently making me a sw roast dinner too!! I’m one lucky girl aren’t I!!! Can’t wait to snuggle and watch X factor! This is what Sundays are about, food, shopping and cuddles 🙂
Enjoy your evening and Happy Fopping. Xx
Well my weekend was far from perfect 😦 Apart from my vertigo I had/have, I’m never ill!!
I was meant to have a fun packed weekend at The Forest of Dean for my friends 30th, but instead I was violently ill at 5am Saturday and had to come home. Yesterday was horrendous, but luckily today I’m feeling better than I did!
So last night instead of downing spirits and diet mixers and dancing to old skool r n b and garage, I was in my pj’s all day eating dry toast and feeling very sorry for myself! What’s a girl to do?!? Sofa, check, X factor, check, iPad for Internet shopping?? Check check check!! Ordered a few things to cheer myself up!! Pics of recent purchases in the blog.
After watching X factor, (I’m obsessed with Andrea, he has to win!!! He’s so cute too! The guy from scunny and the hey now guy aren’t bad either ;-). I got an early night. So I ventured out today for an hour to ikea. I literally have to get in and out as fast as possible in these places! People stress me out in there! They walk at 1mph! For some reason today people wanted to touch me too!! A little boy I walked past grabbed my arm and shouted “hi ya!!!!!!!” At the top of his voice lol, too cute. Then a lady accidentally tried to hold my hand while walking down the stairs, er do I look like your grey haired husband?? No lol!! Awkward. We needed a dining room table and chairs and ikea is so flipping cheap, so I’ll put up with the slow, touch feeley strangers. My bf is currently putting it together now, soooooooo not a job for me! I’m sat watching strictly on catch up 🙂 How good is Max!!! Frankie and Caroline are good too, but I’m not a huge fan for some reason. Scott Mills?!? Lol OMG just awful!!! Plus I can no longer possibly fancy Mark Wright after this! Not great is he. Errrrrrrrrr and Donny Osband?? What’s he on?!?! Loving Tess’s dress though! So flattering.
So anyway, what makes today perfect then?? Food of course!! Now I’m feeling ok again I need food!! I’ve decided to do a slow cooked whole chicken. All you do is place some foil balls in the bottom of the slow cooker and balance an upside chicken on them. You don’t add water or anything, I just added some herbs. Cook on high for an hour, then 6 hours on low. It just falls off the bone. Amaze.
Then I’m doing loads of veg and these incredible roast potatoes!! Par boil the potatoes, drain and rough them up a little. Place in a roasting dish, then pour up to 1/2 way up the potatoes chicken stock made with boiling water and a chicken oxo, spray the tops with frylight and put in a hot oven for about 45 mins. The potatoes soak in the chicken stock, making the inside lovely and soft and the outside crispy from the frylight. Top chefs do this, however they would use goose fat instead of the liquid. Don’t turn the potatoes though, otherwise they won’t get crispy.
Literally can’t wait to demolish it!! I hope your weekend was better than mine!!!
