Lush Easter treats

I love the seasonal bath bombs that Lush bring out. The Christmas ones were cute, but these Easter ones are just as adorable! 
About a week ago I popped into Lush and grabbed these; the Bunny bubble bar, the Fluffy Egg and Secret Garden. I think I liked the fluffy egg least- the smell didn't appeal to me at all and I thought there would be more bubbles! The secret garden bath bomb was lovely! Not what I expected at all when I saw lots of petals floating around my bath tub! My favourite has to be the Bunny bubble bar- bubble bars are my fav in general- and who doesn't love a cute bunny!

Have you picked up any of the Easter treats at Lush? I really want to go back and get the cute carrots!

Bread banana bread/cake..thing

Earlier this week I decided to get my 'bake on' + some bananas we getting pretty yellow/brown = a banana cake./bread thing. What do you call it?
Anyways, they're so simple and easy to made and are so nice and moist (I hate a dry spomge).

All you need is:
2 mashed (ripe) bananas,
185g plain flour,
110g butter/margarine,
2 eggs,
120g sugar,
1/2 tsp cinnamon,
1 tsp baking powder,
a splash of milk,
1tsp honey

Then basically combine all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl until quite thick and gooey, pour into a lined or greased tin. Easy peasy.
I like a loaf shape personally :) as it is called banana 'bread' after all. Then cook at 180C for about an hour checking back regularly- I had to as my ovens a bit rubbish!.
Then it shoudl look a little something like this, it will come out pretty moist and will need to kind of 'set'- I usually put mine the fridge once cold. And then eat it all in one go......

Do you have a banana bread recipe? I'd love to see it- I'm always on the hunt for diff recipes :)

So I tried a smoothie fast...

Last week I thought I'd try a smoothie fast, after finding a good one on Dr Oz's site. It involved buying about £22 worth of fruit and veg (and of course you'll need a blender)!
