RECIPE | Seafood & Veg Pasta Bake

I try to make an effort to eat quite healthy, mainly to counteract my daily chocolate intake(less said about that the better), but also because I hate after you've eaten a fat, salt and carb ridden meal, you get that stodgy, gross and heavy feeling - not nice at all, and as geeky as it sounds, I actually enjoy cooking/eating healthy meals! So today, I thought I would share a really easy, quick and cheap meal that can serve at least 4 people, or if you're like me and a student only cooking for themselves, it's ideal to whack in a pot and can be eaten for days afterwards..

 Ingredients - -
- Seafood selection(£2 from Morrisons) or any fish of your choice
- Spinach leaves
- Carrots
- Pasta
- Caesar dressing

1. Boil the pasta as you would do normally in a pan(I put in about a 1/3 of the packet; likewise with the carrots.

2. Pour the pasta, seafood, carrots and then half a pack of spinach leaves into the dish and mix together.

3. Sprinkle grated cheese on top of the pasta, and you can then either pop it into the oven for about 10mins, so the cheese melts and the food is hot throughout or on a warm summer day, I actually just poured the Caesar dressing on top and served it cold. 

 4. And voila! In about 10 minutes you've created a dish with minimal effort but maximum taste!

So simple, so easy, so cheap and is also pretty healthy too!

If you give it a go, be sure to tweet me a picture etc and if you do recipe posts, please leave your link in the comments!

Thanks for reading - hope you're enjoying the sunshine!

REVIEW | Rimmel Stay Blushed Liquid Cheek Tint Review

Cream blusher and I have had a tricky relationship for the past few years - how do I apply it? Can you even see it on my face? Not creamy enough.. Not natural looking.. etc etc. However, the moment that I tried the Rimmel 'Stay Blushed liquid cheek tint', I knew it was love and I was sold on it!

I have the shade ' 001 - Pop of pink' which is a warm, pretty pink which is subtle when applied and gives a healthy glow to the skin, the perfect every day shade. Its lightweight texture(which is no way a liquid by the way as the name suggests, it's more mousse like) makes it so easy to apply, blending in seamlessly to lift the skin.

The packaging is nothing to write home about - very small, simple and unnoticeable in shops but at a fantastic price of just £4.49, I would definitely give this cream blusher a try! (Especially with Boots' 3 for 2 offer on at the moment!)

Hope you're having a fab bank holiday weekend!
