GU and FRU

This is my review of some posh puddings. (In that case I should probably say desserts, or even sweets, but never mind).

If you’re in Sainsburys and you go to the aisle with the yogurts; at the end there are a few posh refridgerated puddings, and amongst them you’ll find GU and FRU things. (The Us have little dots over them, but I’m not technically minded enough to know how to do that with this keyboard).

These puddings are seriously the most gorgeous things I have ever tasted. My favourite is the siscillian lemon cheesecake. The rasberry and chocolate thing is delicious too, and recently I went to barbeque and was introduced to the delights of the chocolate brownies with warm chocolate sauce. We agreed that these were definitely designed by women!

They aren’t as cheap as a donut, but they really do cheer me up when I need it most! The smaller ones, such as the cheesecakes, are £2.99 for 2. (But you get to keep the little glass jars they come in; and if you want to try and recreate them, I’ve tested them in the oven at 200 degrees (again, too inept to find the little round circle). The brownies are more, for £3.99 (8 in a box) and an extra £1.50 for the sauce (which can also be eaten cold as a sort of truffly thing). All the types I’ve tried are very filling and it really is a struggle to eat more than you wanted to eat, but want to really; if you know what I mean (and I’m sure you do).

My only criticism is that you really can’t eat them when you’re on a diet and I just don’t think that’s fair. And they are just a step away from the low-fat lemon mousses that I just about rely on when I’m on a diet, and that’s just about all of the time.

Incidently, they also do chocolate ice cream, but I won’t be reviewing that, because even GU won’t get me to like ice cream. (Yes I know; everyone tells me everyone likes ice cream. But I don’t, so deal with it ok?!)

Boots No 7 LIFT & luminate Day cream review
March 8, 2017
For me there’s a fine line between looking young and dewy, and looking fat and sweaty. This is the problem of having a round chubby face, and I’ve always gone as matte as possible with my make-up to avoid the second scenario as much as possible. However, as Boots no7 changed the formula of their Protect and Perfect Day cream, and I wasn’t as impressed as I was with their older version, I thought I would try out this one, which is part of their new Lift & Luminate range…..

Approaching forty – Is it time to take out my piercings?
April 13, 2018
It has been on my mind for a while that maybe it’s time to take out some of the piercings in my face, and as I’m turning forty in a couple of days, I thought now would be a good time to do so! Over the years two other piercings have fallen by the wayside – I took out my belly-button ring when I was pregnant with Jude as it was getting in the way, and (rightly so) I felt my days of showing off my tummy in a crop top were over. Then about four years ago the ball on the end of my tongue piercing came off, and as I didn’t know what size to replace it with, I just took it out. Now don’t get me wrong; I’m a firm believer in wearing whatever the f**k you want, regardless of age, but there are a couple of reasons that have led me to think that it’s time for a change….

Looking for the perfect base – Review of Boots No 7 day cream; Rimmel mattifying primer & Bare Minerals matt powder foundation
October 12, 2017
I’m sure I could be psycho-analysed about this; but I cannot run out of something unless I’ve already bought the thing I’m going to use next – even if I know that’s not for some time! During our recent trip to America, I planned on buying a few products that I regularly use so that I have them all set to go when I ‘hit pan’ on my current ones! The first of these is the No7 Protect and Perfect Day Cream. I stood in my local Boots a couple of months ago and couldn’t bring myself to spend £25 on the next one, so I thought I’d wait until I could get it slightly cheaper across the pond. The second item was Maybelline mineral powder foundation, but as they didn’t have that any more, I was tempted into buying the Bare Minerals matte powder foundation instead. The primer was an impulse purchase as I was drawn in by the ‘mattifying’ bit on the label. Yes, there is a theme here. And yes, if a matte moisturising day cream existed, I would buy that too!….
