Inspirational Women on International Women's Day 2015 by Bewildered Bug

Today is International Women’s Day 2015.  Today is the day that the world celebrates the spectacular history of inspirational women around the world.  The problem that I have with this is that the women who are celebrated are, more times than not, famous women – people like Maya Angelou, Vivienne Westwood, Margaret Thatcher, Indira Gandhi, Rosa Parks, Emmeline Pankhurst etc. etc. just to name a few.  These women are indeed spectacularly inspirational, but I thought it would be good to… Continue Reading “Inspirational Woman”

Gluten Free Dairy Free Protein Packed pancakes by Bewildered Bug

I’ve found the most fantastic pancake recipe ever….yes on Pinterest.  After all, I am a bit of a Pinterest addict (if you don’t know that you need to stalk me a bit better).  Anyway, I know “Pancake Day”, better known as Shrove Tuesday, has passed – but I just HAD to share this with you in case, like me, you’ve been living under a rock peeping out. Last night, I felt for a sweet treat, and decided to experiment.  The… Continue Reading “Pancakes!! Low Fat, High Protein, Gluten Free and Dairy Free yet seriously yummy!!”

My favourite beauty products

My favourite beauty products by Bewildered Bug

It seems like only a few weeks ago that I guest posted on Happy China Doll to tell her all about my favourite beauty products, but in reality it has been almost three years!  I reviewed the post recently and I still love those products, but have changed some of them.  I still love the beauty products that I wrote about that day, but had a really hard time finding it when I first moved to England.  If you remember,… Continue Reading “My favourite beauty products”

Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is here to stay!

Depiction of Saint Valentine by Dustin Lee

I know this seems like a late post, but Valentine’s Day 2015 has just passed and it amazed me the amount of reactions that flew by on my personal Facebook profile alone, much less on public forums.  It was either the completely in love-gushy-I-love-Valentine’s-Day sympathizers or the completely-cynical-anti-Valentine’s-Day-antagonists.  I see this yearly, and honestly, I personally love Valentine’s Day because I’ve gotten roses from a very special person every year for the past 14 years….I’ve been lucky, but I try… Continue Reading “Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is here to stay!”

Snow Advice for Britons (and anyone else who may need it)

Snow Advice from Bewildered Bug

Take it from one who had to learn rather quickly – snowy conditions require special life skills.  These seem to be life skills that many of you lovelies here in Britain do not seem to have.  I have been sitting here quietly giggling at the ineptitude of Britain and Brits when it comes to dealing with snow.  Forgive me, I know it’s a bit mean to laugh, but you guys really do not seem to know how to handle over… Continue Reading “Snow Advice for Britons (and anyone else who may need it)”

Doing your part in spreading breast cancer awareness.

breast cancer awareness with Bewildered Bug

In the modern day, it is hard-pressed to find anyone whose lives have not been affected by cancer.  Recently, my pal Christine shaved her head in honour of those she knew who had passed with cancer and for Cancer Awareness Day.  I’m not as brave and will probably choose to wear one of the awesome breast cancer awareness shirts available on the market…and keep my hair.  But all joking aside, breast cancer – in fact, cancer in general – is… Continue Reading “Doing your part in spreading breast cancer awareness.”

Alcohol free white sangria with Eisberg alcohol free chardonnay by Bewildered Bug

Are you still thinking about the good times?  The recently-gone-too-soon-holiday celebrations?  Do you remember happily imbibing in food and drink over Christmas and New Years?  Wishing you were back there but without the weight loss and hang overs?  Well my dear – first of all, I say let the celebrations continue.  Why should your joy be overwhelming only at Christmas?!  I believe that one should treat yourself well throughout the year – and that includes keeping yourself joyful!  And maybe,… Continue Reading “Alcohol free white sangria recipe”

My love affair with Orion….

Orion and Bewildered Bug

“You can always find Orion by the three stars in a row”.  These were the words that started my love affair with the constellation Orion, the instruction to look at the three stars in the sky that formed his belt.  From spotting his belt, the majestic form of the constellation appeared before my eyes like magic, and I saw Orion – and from that day on, I kept on looking for him.  I may have watched the movie, “Secret of… Continue Reading “My love affair with Orion….”

A natural solution for curly hair – Bouclème products

Bouclème product review by Bewildered Bug

When I was young, I had dead straight hair.  So did both my sisters…except for my little sister who had dead straight hair ending in curls.  She now has dead straight hair period.  She’s the only one of the three girls who is lucky enough to have straight hair.  It seemed to have gotten straighter as it went down the line.  My oldest sister’s hair went curly upon the onset of puberty and now will fall into beautiful drop curls… Continue Reading “A natural solution for curly hair – Bouclème products”
