Champagne Glass Terrarium

I was sent this gorgeous champagne cocktail gift set for the latest Rose and Grey styling challenge.  Now, it was *extremely* tempting to legitimately send Neil out for Champagne, but I thought no, I’m going to try something I’ve never done before.  Then it hit me, an unusual glass container… I thought I would make a terrarium!

Vitamin C Boost for #Happyskin

As I mentioned last week, I’ve been on a bit of a health and fitness drive over the last month or so.  After creating some healthy eating recipes last week, I’ve also been putting together my own smoothies and juices as a way of getting off to a good start in the mornings.  Normally breakfast for me would be a total carb fest, toast, toast, and more toast.  Now, although there’s nothing wrong with that in moderation it does get rather boring and makes me feel full in a really stodgy way.  Thankfully I’ve found that my food processor has everything I need to make juices and smoothies so for my top vitamin c boosting recipes that you can easily make at home, scroll down below.body.shop.skin.1
