I flipping love a mini product, don’t you? And if you know any students that are heading off to university this autumn, this gorgeous Estée Lauder #Gameface beauty box, specially curated to be the ultimate Freshers survival kit, is just the perfect gift to see them off with a big smile on their faces. I wrote recently about taking the leap from home to uni, and it’s a daunting prospect for even the most confident student, so anything that’s going to give them a lift – and make them look and feel their best too – is most welcome. Also, for most new students, money is really tight, so this many products are going to be really welcome, especially when the box contains so many brilliant Estée brands.
One of the challenges that many students seem to face when they first move away from home is finding inspiration for decent, cheap meals. It’s not just inspiration that’s the problem either: obviously they’ve got a limited budget and they’re probably not used to supermarket shopping either (let alone on a budget), so they’re overwhelmed with the price and choice of food and end up sticking to the same two or three things that they know how to cook (or blowing a week’s budget on Domino’s then eating beans on toast at the end of the month). I promised Charlie I’d start to write up a few simple, quick and – most importantly – healthy recipes that he can refer to, so I came up this easy veggie lentil chilli for him, but honestly, we liked this one so much I’ve been making it about once a week. I serve it with brown rice and top with a handful of salad, sour cream or avocado. It’s also delicious served with sausages (veggie or otherwise). Read more
