Cupcake Cookies

10 Mar 2016

7 oz Self raising flower
3.5 oz caster sugar
3.5 oz butter 
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

For the icing 
5 tblsp icing sugar
food colouring 

(you can also find this recipe on the BBC food website)

1- Firstly add the self raising flour and sugar to a bowl and give it a little mix with a wooden spoon so everything is combined.

2-now add in the butter and use your hands to make the mixture into, what resembles, breadcrumbs.

3- Once this is done, crack your egg into a small bowl and whisk it until its light and frothy. Then add in the teaspoon of vanilla extract to the egg mixture.

4- Now begin to combine the dry ingredients and the eggs together with a wooden spoon and then use your hands when the mixture becomes stiff and into a dough ball. 

5- Place the dough onto baking paper and lightly dust a large rolling pin with flower and begin to roll out the dough. Make sure its not too thin or too thick, just under a cm will do. 

6- Now you can choose any cookie cutter you like to cut out your shapes. Im using a cupcake cookie cutter from sainsburys. 

7- cook for 10-15 minutes on gas mark 4.

Triangl Bikini Dupe

3 Jun 2015

hello everyone, todays post is slightly different, I recently purchased this amazing bikini from amazon for just £13. And as much as I love the look of the real Triangl Bikini's I think this is a pretty good dupe. I thought I would include the link to the site I used which you can find here . I decided to get mine in a size medium which was a pretty good fit. I must admit I thought the orange would be more pink neon but either way I still think the colours go really nicely. The material is kind of like a wet suit which is pretty odd for a bikini but I think the concept behind it is pretty good. Overall I think its great for a price tag of just £13 and there are loads of different colours to choose from.

New Skincare aditions #2

2 Jun 2015

Hello everyone, so I have decided to 'try' and blog almost everyday in June, and if you know me I only managed 4 days of blogmas, so im  not too sure how well this is going to go down. But, im going to try my best. So hopefully you would have seen yesterdays post which was my Instagram and YouTube favourites of the month. So today I thought I would talk about a few new skincare bits I've recently brought. So you may have seen some of these products in my latest haul, but I have recently made my first purchase in The body Shop and I decided to pick up a new facial wash as I  was in great need of one and have heard the tea tree range is pretty good. I also picked up the tea tree cleanser and oil, using the cleanser to remove make up and also the oil is great for reducing sizes of spots and red areas, and its also great for cuts and blisters too.
I also just picked up a new garnier micellar water as I was out of it and needed a new one and I also got one of the quick fix facials which I haven't really heard much about and didn't really want to spend £10 on the sanctuary spa one, so gave the charcoal mask a try for £3. I find it really helps reduce blackheads but doesn't really keep them away for that long. But for the money it works pretty well.
The last thing I got and have been loving is the Nip and Fab dark spot fix and I got mine from tk max for £4 instead of £15, which was a bargain. I have used this almost every day since purchased and I find it really helps to even out skin tone and help calm blemishes.


have you tried any of these products?
