Easy, Healthy Carrot Cake Cookies Recipe

carrot cake cookies
I don’t know about you but this time of year always inspires me to eat food that is good for me. As soon as the sun shines, I put down the Yorkshire puddings and bring out the Greek salads ha. The minute the weather starts to get better, I crave salads (with a side of carb, obv) over my usual Yorkshire puddings, put the Cheeselets down (reluctantly) and that desire for all the hot food seems to disappear (and trust me, I'm not a salad kinda girl). If you’ve been following me on Instagram you will have seen that since moving to London I’ve been trying hard to get myself in to a routine of baking healthy snacks that I can eat on the go, particularly for breakfast.  It just means I try to bulk bake on a Sunday and have something good to grab for the week ahead when I need a snack. I've also been trying to up my fibre intake so I'm trying to eat more oats and fruit/veggies when I can. I actually wrote a blog post about several of my favourite breakfast recipes if you missed that. Today I wanted to share my easy healthy carrot cake cookie recipe with you.

Hello hello! Today a different and I guess 'old school' blog post from me. If you've been reading Emtalks for a while, you'll know I've got a section on my blog that I update regularly with lots of occasion wear outfit ideas in one easy place as I'm often asked what people should be wearing or for some inspo for wedding guest, proms, graduations or the races. Today I thought I'd put together all my current top wedding guest dresses and outfits in one easy place as I cannot stop adding stuff to my wishlist. I rarely go to weddings, in fact, hello, people around me please start getting married so I have an excuse to buy all of these pretty dresses! I personally LOVE wearing white and obviously you can't wear white to a wedding but hopefully some of these beautiful outfits below will give you some inspiration if you're going to a wedding or looking for a perfect wedding guest outfit this year. If you're wondering what should I wear for a wedding? Hopefully this blog post will give you all the wedding guest dress inspiration.

12 Things I Didn’t Realise About Living In My Own Home!

Hello hello, I do hope you are all well. Whilst cleaning my washing machine the other day, it suddenly dawned on me just how much I’ve learnt since moving to my new place late last year and I thought it would make a great blog post to tell you all about it. I thought I’d write about 12 things I didn’t realise until I got my own ‘professional house’. The reason I say 'professional house’, is because I have lived away from home numerous times - when I was at University I lived away from home in different places (and countries) but this time it’s different as I'm not a student anymore and this will undoubtedly lead to me moving in to my own long term family home rather than returning to the home in which I spent my childhood. When I was a student I didn’t think about spending money on lovely cutlery etc, plus student flats aren’t something you spend your time designing or even tidying much because there are so many people living with you and so much going on. So, when I tell you what I’ve learnt in my ‘professional house’ I guess I really mean my non-student crib haha. So here you have it. Some other 'adulting' blog posts similar to this topic that you may enjoy too include how to save money, everything you need to know about renting or buying a house in London and how to set up a pension or why pensions are important!

DERMIKELP Beauty Review - Spring Hair & Body Care - Sustainable Beauty

Dress online here /

Paid advertorial - As a beauty lover, it’s always exciting for me when a new brand comes to the market and ticks all the boxes. In today's beauty spotlight is Dermikelp, a brand I’ve been watching with interest since I heard about it last year. Dermikelp is a new range of body and hair care made with nutrient-rich sea kelp. Before I use new products, I always try and understand a bit about their background. I fall in love with brands that little bit more once I start to understand their story and the background of their founders - it really makes a difference to me. Dermikelp was launched by Dr Nigel Christie, a marine biologist who, in the first instance, developed kelp products for agricultural use, and following its success turned his attention to exploring the potential of sea kelp to nourish skin.
