IT'S A SAVVY 'N' SASSY BLOGMAS! 2/12/17 DAY 2


Hey there!
Are you feeling Christmassy yet?! You will after today's Savvy Blogmas blog! (Is that such a thing?). Well anyway, read on!

Today I have something special to give you true Christmas cheer and will be perfect for a party or you know, for yourself!!!! 


Today is a recipe...but not any old recipe....it's for CHRISTMAS PUNCH! You read that right. Get yourself down to the supermarket when they have special prices on spirits and stock up for all your Christmas punches and cocktails!
Its healthy as well as it is plant based!!!!! Mwhahaha!
First grab yourself one of the following. I'm guessing your choice of vessel depends upon how posh you are!!!! (joking)



Now grab yourself some ingredients!

You are going to make enough for 8 thirsty people!

450 mls whiskey (if your guests are drunk use cheap stuff , they will never know!)
300 mls Benedictine,
600 mls Cranberry juice,
150 mls Clementine juice, (it goes soooo well with the cranberry)
2 satsumas thinly sliced,
2 vanilla pods (use the seeds).

Method
Have an immense amount of fun laughing whilst you glug everything in to your chosen vessel! Add ice and leave for 5 minutes before serving.

Important
Don't make this any earlier than 2 hours before you serve. This is because of the sour ingredients and it will all go rather rank!

I love how The Barefoot Baker serves up a Christmassy Cocktail! 




If you are feeling in a "showy offy" mood, why not dress each glass with three sour cherries?
Enjoy making this . I think it will be great for parties or after late night shopping. 

Savvy Blogmas!

GUEST BLOGGER KAZ MOLLOY DISCUSSES THE "WOMB CANCER SCANDAL". A MUST READ FOR ALL WOMEN. AGE IS NO DISCRIMINATOR.

Guest Blogger Kaz Molloy writes about the great “womb cancer scandal” for Savvy ‘n’ Sassy readers today. Her message is powerful, and a must read for all women, young and older alike. Her words are from the heart. She has survived womb cancer but it has left a profound effect on her life. Please read and please, please share. It is easy to hide and not look at articles like this because we get scared. There is no need to be scared. Knowledge is a life saver. Who wouldn't want to know about the most common but sadly under discussed symptoms  of womb cancer?
I was diagnosed with womb cancer at the end of Dec 2009, aged 46. I had never heard of it and knew nothing about it. I didn’t know that it was the most common gynaecological cancer and that it can affect women of all ages.
After my treatment ended I decided to do something about the lack of support out there for women who had been diagnosed with womb cancer and also about the lack of awareness there was about this cancer.
So in Apr…

12 TOP TIPS TO SAVE YOUR BEAUTY CASH AND REDUCE YOUR BEAUTY CARBON FOOTPRINT!

Hey you, savvy 'n' sassy lady! I hope you are having a good week. I don’t know about you but, as I am getting older I am frequently finding that I am less seduced by “things” and increasingly looking at how I can save a bit of cash here and there by finding ways to reuse “stuff” or by “buying wiser”. For me this has been really noticeable with regards to “beauty stuff”. Yes I have been guilty I've buying every promise or new tool, haven’t we all? The problem I have is two fold. Often, whenI look at the ingredients of products I realise how easy and cheap they are to find elsewhere and also, there is that question of recycling/upcycling. I am sure many of us are appalled at the amount of waste and damage we are doing to the planet which we will leave as a legacy to our younger family members.


With this in mind, I have made a huge effort to avoid unnecessary purchases and ways to recycle or at least reduce my carbon footprint. I am truly pleased to share them with you today an…
