Spotted! New Barry Ms

I’m a bit late to the party here, as I saw these a week ago and I know lots of blogs have already featured them.  But if you haven’t already seen, the new Autumn 2014 Barry M colours are out.  And there are quite a few alongside the recent Autumn Gelly shades that came out in September.

First up Glitterati Nail Paint – these are super sparkly nail shades in six colours as seen below…. the bottle tops are deliberately distressed.


Also in this Boots were the two new Xmas shades, Starlight and Moonlight.  These have the red bottle tops. They have tiny stars in them, one mainly silver and one with bits of red in.

Bit of a closer shot here and the matte top coat makes up the full row.


Then there are the new Aquarium shades as well….


And some additions to the glitter line….

IMG_6466So quite a lot of new Barry M shades out there for your nail pleasure.  These images are from Boots and I know that Superdrug will also have their own limited edition Christmas paints and there is one limited edition one for Tesco from what I understand.  Plenty to get stuck into!  They are up on the Barry M website but I couldn’t see the red toppped bottles so you will have to swing by your local Boots, Superdrug or Tesco.

Anything catch your eye or have you already taken the plunge?  Let me know in the comments


Rhubarb Grunt

I’ve been back in my kitchen, enjoying the glut of autumn fruits. This time, however, I raided our freezer and pulled out my frozen rhubarb sticks (basically clean and chopped rhubarb, frozen on baking sheets until hard then bagged up).  I didn’t want to make a crumble, but I did want something similar.  So I tried out this recipe for Rhubarb Grunt- its basically a cross between a crumble and a cobbler.

The topping is made with flour, sugar, a crack of salt and whipped double cream.  Looks a bit like cauliflower (or brains…..) when you first dollop it over the fruit.


The topping bakes a goes a golden brown, keep an eye on it or its burnt city!



It was really lovely, the topping is actually rather light and airy, and its not too filling.  I think next time I might squeeze in a bit more fruit.  Very simple to make and a great way to use up left over cream or fruit.

Do you have a favourite crumble or cobbler recipe?  Do share in the comments, it was lovely that some of you shared your brownie recipes last week, thank you 😀
