HAPPY BONFIRE NIGHT LOVES! The other day I was having a scroll on Pinterest (as per usual) for some bonfire inspired cupcakes seen as bonfire night was approaching and came across these super cute cupcakes with a log burning fire design on the top to give the effect of looking like a bonfire. As like everything on Pinterest, I knew mine weren’t going to turn out exactly like they do on the picture but I thought I would have a bash at baking them for myself this afternoon and I don’t think they turned out too bad for a first attempt? These cupcakes follow a basic cupcake recipe so they are actually super easy to make and most importantly, taste DELISH. Although my last baking post was only a few weeks ago and it’s a bit late seen as it’s November the 5th today, I thought I would share this recipe with you anyway if you fancy having a go at making them next year! I promise you won’t regret making these fun ‘Bangin’ Bonfire Cupcakes’ (see what I did there) which most importantly, you can enjoy at the end with friends and family…or just yourself 😉 View Post
Hi loves, I hope you are all well! In my pervious post I spoke about wanting to create better content on my blog and really put in all the effort I can after having a lil’ break but since that post, I and everyone else in their final year of school have been hit with a load of mock exams in November (woohoo) which will be consuming most of my free time revising when I’d usually be blogging. Especially seen as it’s half term when I was looking forward to dedicating more time to my blog and having good old break from school work but hey ho that’s year 11 for ya. I thought instead of letting the revision take up all my free time, I would have a time of not revising (yes you heard it, having a break is allowed) and write this post on creating a realistic revision plan that you can stick to and tips that will hopefully help some of you who are studying for exams like myself, especially GCSE’s at the end of the year as I know I have found the idea of a lot of exams at once quite daunting!
It’s been a while lovely ones, but I’m so pleased to say after a few hectic weeks I’M BACK (woohoo) and I’m feeling more inspired than ever. It feels so good to be back sat writing a post again for what feels like blooming forever, even though it was only a few weeks ago. Still, taking any time off blogging is very rare for me and is something I always look forward to doing each week so to have no new posts for a while was very strange and I can only start with apologising for my absence lately. Since cooking up some choc chip cookies in my previous post, a few things have happened which made me realise that taking a lil’ bit of time off would be the best solution. I’m dying to get back into it now I’m refreshed and get my camera out again to create hopefully better content and put all the effort in I can more than before. Taking some time off to make time for school work with it being the start of my final school year (gulp) and to generally sit back and give myself a bit off me time has reminded me how lucky I am to have such an amazing community of followers (you guys) and how much you have enabled my blog and our community to grow from where I am now to where I was a good year and a half ago when I was a total newbie to blogging. It’s really made me realise how much I missed blogging and how I want to continue to improve and pursue it.
What better way to make your cosy autumn evenings catching up on your fave TV show sat by the fire more delicious than munching on a rather delish choc chip cookie?? (or two…) Especially when bake offs on! I thought I would have a go at making them the other afternoon and trust me, this recipe is SO quick, easy and most importantly fun to make which are the perfect (admittedly slightly unhealthy) snack which I’ve been craving ever since. They are soo good! For me, a cookie has to be gooey and a decent size (no messing around here guys & gals) and these definitely tick those boxes! It was my first time having a bash at baking these and I would definitely bake them again! The recipe also requires very little ingredients to make so no fancy expensive ingredients are needed! Let me know if you do, I promise you will not regret it! View Post
Skincare is something that although I don’t speak about as much on my blog compared to makeup, it is the main priority for me when it comes down looking after your skin which I feel is so important. Before makeup, skincare always comes first. Every night when it’s that time to finally take your makeup off after a long day, I always, always make sure I clean my face before going to bed and do my skincare routine. This is the same for mornings, the first step when I get ready is doing my morning skincare routine before I think about applying makeup. This may seem tiresome and time consuming for those mornings when you are in a rush to get ready or on a night when you just want to get to bed and quickly take your makeup off but I can’t stress enough how important looking after your skin is guys & gals. I’m no expert but sticking to a skincare routine and looking after your skin will help you keep beautiful skin for the future & comes with lots more worthwhile benefits. View Post
