Breakfast Banana Smoothie!

Sometimes, the most simple smoothies are the best ones- and this one has only four  ingredients.

All you need is one banana, porridge oats, milk and cinnamon (optional).

I break the banana up with my fingers and put it in the smoothie maker. I add 2 tablespoons of plain porridge oats, and then pour in enough milk to fill the size of the glass I want. I then add cinnamon to taste.

This takes me less than a minute to make, and is delicious. I recently went to a little cafe in the town centre which did the same smoothie and charged £3.50.

Do you have a favourite smoothie recipe?

Seventeen Mirror Shine Lipstick 'Beehive' // Review

Seventeen is a brand whose makeup stand I often walk past. But everything I've tried from Seventeen, I've really liked.

I recently rediscovered my Mirror Shine Lipstick in the shade 'Beehive' which I bought a while ago. The Youtuber Lily Melrose shares the same taste in makeup that I do, so when she recommended this in a haul I watched ages ago, I went out and bought it straight away.

The lipstick is only £4.19 and I can say I don't own anything else like this lipstick. The shade 'Beehive' is a peachy nude colour which is a perfect everyday shade. I recently went on a trip to Whitby and this was the only nude I brought with me.

The finish is quite glossy and sheer, but also moisturising which is what I'm looking for as we keep having these mini heat waves. The packaging is very sleek and smart, and also has a mirror tucked in with the lipstick which I don't have on any other packaging.

This is such a great everyday shade, and it will probably end up in my Florida makeup bag now I've rediscovered it.

Have you tried any lipsticks from this range? What did you think?
