Appealing AVON Anew Skin Products


So I went to Burracoppin (the wheat belt of Western Australia) for Daffodil Day, and there were many stalls there. I didn’t look at many stalls which is UNLIKE me! I think I just wanted coffee! But I stopped by the Avon stall and had a lovely chat with the consultants. 

I couldn’t believe that they were so kind to give so many samples to me! I was interested to try as I hadn’t heard of Avon for SO long! I remember the brand from when I was little! I took a catalogue so I could check out the products for when I get home and received the following samples.

A Day in York


Today I went on a road trip to a small town not far from Merredin. Just for something to do on a Saturday! It was about an hours drive and stopped off for a morning coffee at a cafe in Kellerberrin.

I had a great time roaming the small Main Street and was astounded by the feel of the place. The town has a heart feeling feel and I enjoyed looking at all the old architecture.

There is many historical information on just the one town!

I grabbed a brochure of the map of the place and had a look at the local history of books in the visitor centre.

My dad had to do an outside broadcast for RadioWest at the Town Hall, so during that time I went antique and book shopping!

The building is just magnificent.

 

This was inside the Town Hall building……

 



I just love looking around!!!!! And across from this building was an antique store. I want to share with you some pieces and findings!

This piece is a part of the Paragon collection. I still prefer Royal Albert and have the set of Old Country Roses, but Paragon still has its place.


And from becoming a royal fan this caught my sparkling eye!!!

This peice is enchanting and valuable.

 

And this is even better and personally a valuable peice.

I then went to Berkley – a bookstore where the fire brigade is. I didn’t buy anything but here’s a few shots of books that caught my eye.

Considering my interest in royalty, I would love to read this book for information on Queen Elizabeth I. I have an interest in reading on many topics, but this just sprung at me! I can’t wait to visit this bookshop again! It has a great range in History, Classics and Literature.


This just looks stunning…… And I ABSOLUTELY want to buy!!!!! 😍😍😍

What’s on my DEFINITE list is this…… My eyes popped when I saw the author, or writer I should say of Downton Abbey, Julian Fellowes has written a novel!!!!! This is definitely on top of my list.







Okay, that wasn’t a “few”….. But if you’re reading this I am sure you understand my love for reading and literature…..

 

Antiques and books is what I’m sticking to, to keep my life occupied!

I hope you enjoyed the photos I took on my day trip and have a lovely weekend!

Orange & Coriander Drizzle Cake


An interesting recipe to add to the RECIPES!!!!! I got it off The Great British Tea Party on Facebook, thanks to them!!!!


Orange & Coriander Drizzle Cake by Nancy Birtwhistle

This fruity bake has a whole orange whizzed up and added to the batter for a zesty teatime treat

Ingredients

1 large orange

175g golden caster sugar

2 tbsp coriander seeds

 Coriander seeds Coriander seed kor-ee-and-er seed

The small, creamy brown seeds of the coriander plant give dishes a warm, aromatic and slightly…

50g polenta

175g butter

, softened

150g self-raising flour

1 tsp baking powder

3 eggs
For the decoration

1 orange

50g golden caster sugar

100g icing sugar

Method

To make the cake, put the orange in a saucepan, cover with water, bring to the boil and simmer for 1 hr or until you can pierce the orange easily with a knife.

Drain, leave to cool, then cut the orange into quarters. Cut each quarter in half so that you have 8 pieces, and remove any pips. Put 75g of the sugar in a small pan and add 100ml water and the orange pieces. Heat gently until the sugar has dissolved, then turn up the heat and simmer for 10 mins. Allow the orange to cool slightly, then either blitz with a stick blender or liquidise to a pulp. Crush the coriander seeds using a pestle and mortar or a spice grinder, then add to the warm orange pulp along with the polenta. Stir to combine, then leave to cool.

Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Grease and line the base and sides of a 22cm loose-bottomed cake tin. Put the butter, flour, baking powder, eggs and the remaining 100g caster sugar in a large mixing bowl along with the cooled orange pulp. Mix until thoroughly blended using an electric hand mixer. Spoon into the prepared tin and bake for 35-45 mins or until springy to the touch – a skewer inserted into the centre should come out clean. The cake should be pale in colour and just leaving the sides of the tin. Transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool.

Meanwhile, prepare the decoration. Using a potato peeler, peel half the zest from the orange into large strips, then slice very thinly so that you have lots of orange zest shreds (like you would for marmalade). Put the caster sugar and 100ml water in a small saucepan set over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved, then add the orange shreds. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 8-10 mins until the shreds are quite soft. Remove using a slotted spoon and set aside on a tray lined with baking parchment.

When the cake has cooled, sift the icing sugar into a small bowl. Juice the orange and add enough of it to the icing sugar to make a runny icing. Drizzle the icing over the cooled cake and scatter the orange shreds on top.

I walked about Northam town and browsed through a few shops! It is a city but part of the country as well….. Let me just say, there’s much more here than Merredin!!!! 



And I love browsing antique collectibles!!!! Especially if it is Royal Albert! This isn’t Royal Albert but is still a nice set in white and blue. 



Then, I drove back home with a stop off at McDonalds cafe for coffee for an extra hit! 

It was nice to get home and unwind with a magazine and the telly on!
