World Book Day 7th March, The Ultimate Quark Guide & Cook Book.

                      

                                 By The Queen of Quark 



    
     For world book day on March the 7th this week and I have been given this book to review by Kerstin and Linda the Human alter ego behind The queen of quark, It's a Hard back copy with 191 pages, of tips and delicious recipes of Quark, To be honest I had never really heard of Quark that much before, I never thought that Quark could be so versatile, I just thought it was like a cottage cheese type product but I realise that it is extreme low in fat and very good for you, you can make the most scrummy cheese cakes and even use it in savoury recipes, and add to  your morning smoothie. 
       
         Kerstain and Linda have cleverly compiled a marvellous collection of tips and recipes  for us mere mortals to try out.  The book starts with a wonderful explanation on the origins and history of Quark,  it also gives you a very helpful list of super-foods  from A to Z, some of which I never released made the list, that taught me.  There is also a fantastic chapter on the health benefits of Quark, I never realised  how good  it is for you,  



    The recipes  and method in the book are easy to understand and very clear, so you instantly don't feel confused and think I can't try them out. The photography jumps out of the page and made me feel very hungry indeed,  the colours used made the whole look of the book fresh and healthy,   Kerstin and Linda have made this Ultimate guide to Quark reader friendly and written with the person in mind. A must for your book shelf  I am proud to have it on mine.

Santi's Handmade Jewellery, Review.

This post contains advertising links. 




  Hi to you all, I was approached by the lovely and talented Sofiya Dimitrova, creator of Santi's Homemade Jewellery.  You will find her fantastic website here Santi's handmade Jewellery  Who gifted me a lovely   Earing's   and bracelet set  to review.




 The items arrived very quickly in a cute little pouch trimmed with a ribbon, I love jewellery so as you can imagine I was very excited to open it.   The earnings and bracelet  I was gifted are silver plated, wire wrapped with opal stone beads. The name Opal derives from the Sanskrit word upala which means "precious stone".  Sofiya designed this piece so it would go with any Summer outfit.
 I loved the pure but subtle tones of the blue against the silver, and that the beads change colour in the light  the earnings are wired so delicately, and with care, you can tell that Sofiya takes great pride in her work.  Each piece has been lovingly handcraft, most of her pieces are made …

The Secret Blogger

Put your hands up who's a secret blogger,  me me me.  In a room full of people I would be the first to stand up, in a queue I would be well and truly at the front.  I am the Ultimate secret blogger I confess, anyone else come on own up.
    On a serious note when, I started my blogging journey I really wanted something to do on a creative level if  20 or so people read my posts I would have been really happy, I never realised  that I would get this far, I have learnt so much in such a short space of time. I started my blog on July 17th 2018, only one person knew about it, my Brother I needed him for the technical bit, I will give him a shout out because he does read the blog don't you know, it took me about three weeks to tell my Sister, and one of my Nieces and my older Brother but no one else knows,   I feel quite like it's some kind of big hush hush secret, don't get me wrong I am proud of my little corner of the internet, I am just not ready to share it with …
