Thoughts of the week

1. There's so much fuss made about bloggers and Instagram users disclosing when they receive a product for free or when they're doing a sponsored post. What I don't understand is why print journalists don't have the same expectations placed on them. Is it because everything they write about was provided to them or is a paid advertisement? They deliberately write in a misleading way to make it sound like they love the products, so in my opinion they should also have to disclose. Until then, it's safe to assume that everything they write about is a free product or paid advertisement.

2. I made healthy chocolate this week and it was so easy! The recipe called for cocoa butter but I didn't have any, so I mixed equal parts of cacao and coconut oil, added agave to taste and that was it! I wanted to be fancy so blended up dates then in a mini muffin tray I put a layer of chocolate, set it in the fridge for 15 minutes then added a layer of dates and the rest of the chocolate. I sprinkled some coconut on top, set it all in the fridge and it was done. Easy and super yummy.

3. Who bought something at the Sephora sale? I didn't! I was very tempted to get some YSL items, but resisted. I did get the Priceline skincare bag though, we needed sunscreen so I ordered it online first thing Friday morning. Now to wait for it to arrive.

4. If you want to get hold of the limited edition Bobbi Brown Crushed lipstick colours, they're on the Bobbi Brown Website now. They're being launched in store and Myer and David Jones today. I predict Sazan Nude will sell out fast so if you've got your eyes on that one, buy it asap.

5. The Body Shop's new Body Yoghurts are amazing. They're vegan and absorb so quickly, within a few minutes, perfect for winter.
