Banana Bread Recipe with a Chocolate Twist

Once Christmas was over, I still had quite a few bananas left in the fruit bowl so I thought I’d make use of them and bake this good old-fashioned cake with a chocolate twist, because although Christmas might be over, I still needed to sneak a bit of chocolate in the recipe some how. This lovely, moist loaf, a sort of cross between banana bread and a drizzle cake, is so easy to bake, perfect for using up over-ripe bananas and can be served straight after baking or frozen. You can literally mix everything in one bowl and there are very few ingredients needed, which sounds like my kinda recipe. It was my first time making this fruity banana bread myself and it’s already a winner for me, and is a kinda healthy snack too. What’s not to love!  View Post

17 things in 2017

HAPPY NEW YEAR’S EVE BEAUTS! Before I get started, I hope you all had the most amazing Christmas to those who celebrate and have had a lovely month in general spent with family and friends or however you celebrated it! After a short break from blogging and eating one too many chocolates during Christmas time, I thought for the last blog post of this year, I would do a bit of a roundup post of 2017, like I’m sure you will have seen other bloggers doing lately. I have chosen 17 moments/events in 2017 to remember and look back on in the future which has made my year because 2017 has definitely been A YEAR. Even though it seems to have flown by to the point where I’m struggling to believe it really is going to be next year in a few hours, a heck of a lot has happened, good and bad but here are some of my fave moments that I won’t forget… View Post

Christmas Wrapping the Traditional Way

I hope you are all having a wonderful countdown to Christmas so far! How is it only 9 days away!? It’s SO exciting but at the same time leaves me panicking about the fact that I still have some last-minute gifts to buy… Anyway something that I am actually ahead of the game on this year is wrapping (the presents I have got).) Despite being ill for the past week with a groggy viral infection, (I just love the freezing cold change in the weather) I thought I would get a bit of wrapping and card writing done, which if you know me, is one of the things I look forward to doing most around Christmas time sat in my crimbo pjs. I just love getting creative and making them all look pretty and festive! (well…I tried.) Compared to last year when I went for copper wrapping paper, the lot, this year I thought I would opt for a more traditional look with brown paper and the classic red ribbon, which is also recyclable! I thought I would do a lil’ post sharing with you how I’m wrapping my gifts this year if you’re looking for some last-minute inspo! View Post

For the Love of Festive Wallpapers

Christmas is cominggg, which means it’s that time again to deck out your desktop with a festive wallpaper. I’m forever changing my wallpaper and there’s nothing better than changing it with the seasons. Normally I spend ages going through Pinterest, but this year I thought I’d put together my own festive home made one (by moi). View Post
