Handpicked Spring Snacking from The Healthy Shopper

Coconut and Peanut Pad Thai Recipe from The Healthy Shoppers and Bewildered Bug

Please welcome Shari back to the blog to discuss the handpicked spring snacking from The Healthy Shopper.  As you know, she has a houseful of bouncing not-so-baby boys, so they definitely enjoy their food – and healthy snacks are on the top of her priority list.  Interestingly, when discussing the Healthy Shoppers Spring 2014 picks, Shari had come up with her own version of easy pad thai, and this Spring (2015), she’s added a twist to a basic pad thai… Continue Reading “Handpicked Spring Snacking from The Healthy Shopper”

Spa Hacks to help you relax (by Cassie)

Spa Hacks to Relax at home with Bewildered Bug

Living on your own has its advantages – including the ability to truly discover who you are and what you need without any distraction.  As much as it was difficult to live apart from the Luv Luv for the last 3 1/2 years (approx.), I think I needed it because I have figured out what I need from life to be happy, healthy and the best I can be.  One of those things is me-time and relax time – and… Continue Reading “Spa Hacks to help you relax (by Cassie)”

Tori Amos reissues Little Earthquakes - #win a copy from Bewildered Bug!

Are you a Tori Amos fan?  I have to say I am a bit of one – I’ve always been fascinated with her brutal honesty and amazing musical ability, from the first time I heard about her until now, that I’ve listened to most of her Reissues of “Little Earthquakes” and “Under the Pink”.  If you are a fan, these albums are above and beyond what you’ve heard before! I am on holiday as I write this, surrounded by the… Continue Reading “Tori Amos reissues her first two albums, Under the Pink and Little Earthquakes!”

Sweet Memories…. with Swizzels Matlow

Sweet memories with Swizzels Matlow and Bewildered Bug

I was stumped on this post, I really was.  I was asked by the awesome people at Swizzels Matlow about my favourite #sweetmemories from childhood.  That is, do I have any awesome memories about candy (sweeties) from when I was a young ‘un.  I completely reached to the point in my ind that we never ate candy.  Then I decided to text my Mom – and she proved me wrong very rapidly.  There are quite a few candy stories throughout… Continue Reading “Sweet Memories…. with Swizzels Matlow”

Alternative uses of toothpaste by Bewildered Bug

I haven’t done one of these posts in a long, long time, but this post on alternative uses for toothpaste is sponsored by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser.  That being said, all opinions in this post, as in all posts on Bewildered Bug, are honest and my own. #CollectiveBias When I was first given this challenge, I thought – my, this will be an interesting one.  As someone who has to cook allergen free for myself, there is quite… Continue Reading “19 Alternative Uses for Toothpaste #cbias”

The battle of the Benefit Mascaras by Birchbox

Birchbox mascara tutorial by Bewildered Bug

I’m a mascara girl – just in case you did not know.  If I had perfect skin, I would actually not wear any makeup other than a good mascara, and perhaps a touch of blush once in a while.  Shamefully, my skin is crap and the hard London water is killing it even more – so I end up piling on foundation and powder and then finally doing my mascara, blush and sometimes eyeliner and brow powder.  That’s a lot… Continue Reading “The battle of the Benefit Mascaras by Birchbox”

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!”
