Fudge galore

Sorry, sorry, sorry. I just keep apologising because I am so bad at uploading posts. The thing is, is that everyone has probably left by now so its just me! (Haha, its January.) So the problem is, is that I'm really busy at college things like coursework are piling up heavy. Of course this comes first so I don't actually have time to put up posts, unfornately. I will try my best but the probability of me being able to post will reduce a lot over the next couple of months. Anyway lets go on with the post, so I made some Oreo Fudge with my friend Tori (here) It came out sooooo gorgeous, it tasted lovely and would definitely make again. I was a little surprised at the little amount of ingredients needed to make this, however the results were fab. I can now tick this off my list of 101 things in 1001 days.



All you will need-
  • 550g White Chocolate
  • 397g tin of condensed sweetened milk
  • 1 packet of OREO® cookies

Christmas is coming

 

Its three days into December and I still can't believe it. We are 12 months into the year already, 12 MONTHS where has the time gone? But guess who has been super duper prepared this year and bought most of her Christmas presents (me, If you hadn't guessed already.) I can't decide whether the Christmas mood has struck yet but I intend to post quite a few times throughout the month (no beauty posts any time soon! College is god damn stressful at the moment so Christmas will be a very welcomed holiday and I'll be glad when its here. (The food is a massively big bonus of Christmas) Is there any posts you would like to see from me? I really would like to post some Christmas themed baking posts or gift ideas.

So here we go, it will be a little series and sometimes these things might be materialistic however you would be lieing to yourself if some of these didn't also bring you joy.

1# fairy lights
2# cheesecake (any type would suffice)
3# Chocolate dipped waffles with all the toppings and everything
4# Sparklers
5# Cosy Jumpers
6# The Vampire Diaries

Sighh Designs // phone cases + pocket mirrors


So if you didn't already know Sighh Designs is run by Polly Vadasz. She hand designs all her own phone cases, mirrors and Macbook skins. Now you have to admit they are pretty darn cool- each phone case costing £14 and the mirrors are around £3.50 I believe. Some people may believe that's a little expensive however she puts a lot of time and care into her cases- and they are also good quality so she deserves every penny. I have two cases: the autumn design and the Spagpoll, which I also have in pocket mirror form as well. Recently getting my Iphone 5s I needed a new phone case, so of course I popped over to Polly's shop- I've wanted one of her cases for a long time.
Pros-
  • quick delivery and very easy/ good service
  • good sturdy cases
  • pretty designs
Cons-
  • you will want more of the cases when you have one (even if you can't afford it)

16 things I learnt whilst being 16

On Halloween (which has been and gone) it was ma 17th birthday. I only have three years or so left of being a teenager and that slightly scares me. Anyway I thought I'd have a reflection of the last year and 16 things I wish I knew about being 16 when I was 15.
 
1. You won't like coffee- even if you try to like Costa, Starbucks, Decaf, Latte. Coffees will not like you and your 16 old self (maybe 17 though, I'll give it a go) 
2. Don't stress over exams, yes gcses are difficult however a levels are ridiculously hard. You will work hard and do sooo well- no need to worry
3. Lush bubble baths won't fix everything but you can still try- even if you can never find the perfect balance between the hot and cold water
4. Christmas is the best time of year without a doubt- the Michael Buble album may be largely connected to that 
5. No matter how many times you say you won't get drunk again after a bad night, guess what you still will...
6. Reading books can make such a difference to your mental state/health so read as widely and as much as possible.
7. Avoid nasty friends and don't try and fit in you'll be proud of yourself in the future (good lungs for the win)
8. Make up and clothes can't buy happiness but treat yourself once in a while
9. Make sure to have me time- light candles, eat chocolate and prett-ify your room. 
10. Don't count calories, it's dangerous it won't help, it will hurt you.
11. Films aren't real and although you want them to be, they aren't so don't expect a friends with benefits romance
12. Music is so important, you will learn and develop a actual good music taste ( arctic monkeys may feature in the near future)
13. Try new experiences and have more confidence- you'll surprise yourself. Oh and you'll love College it trumps secondary school.
14. Indulge in multiple domino pizzas and vanilla milkshakes because they are obviously delicious
15. It doesn't matter how many likes or followers you have on a social media network- and don't let society make you think otherwise
16. Stay organised and don't leave anything to the last minute- it just causes unnecessary panic and stress which you don't need.

festive lush induced purchases

Snow is falling all around us. Fa la la la la- Christmas mood is coming out and its only November! So it was my birthday on Friday and I was seventeen- anyone want to see a birthday related blog post? On Saturday I visited Brighton and of course took a cheeky trip to Lush. Many, actually all of the purchases were from the Halloween/Christmas range. My fav being the sparkly pumpkin, a beauty but also smells lush. (haha you also thought that was quite funny!) I may have also bought a present which rattles, a so called sparkler, a festive lush pud, a so white ball of goodness, a dashing santa and some others.

make-up // new in


Guess who's a bad blogger? Me. I should have an excuse because this isn't the first time I've had a big break from my blog. Well I started college which is very hard might I just add- and there is alot of work involved. So of course I was focusing my attention on to that, and I was in the processing of making new friends and enjoying that little time away from my blog. (Sorry to neglect you guyzz but I thought I'd take a little time off!)

Anyways what feels like a long time ago I picked up some beauty bits and pieces. All of which I've tried and tested as I've had them for a while. The first being The Body Shop Honey Bronzer, a cult classic among everyone. (A bit late on the bandwagon here!) The one thing I'd say with this product is, is that its a bronzer and its not really appropriate for contouring! So if that's what you want out of this product, I wouldn't expect too much. However it definitely warms the complexion and makes you look full of life- especially with Winter just round the corner. I also picked up the Lid Stuff in 'What's Nude?' I haven't been reaching for this as much as I hoped but I love all the colours, easily wearable shades for any time of day. Alongside this I also picked up a Collection cream puff in: Fairy cake. Did I need this? Yes  No, I probably didn't. It smells lovely and the finish is also gorgeous. 

I left the best till last- a very cult classic blush. I picked up NARS blush in 'Deep Throat' - yes I question that name as you much as you do now. I originally was interested in Orgasm (again) however I found this to be similar to the blushes I already own and also quite shimmery. So I find this shade a lot more subtle and very flattering. You just have to gaze in admiration over their beautiful products and packaging- even if it turns messy after the third use!

brandy melville // new in


Heya you lovely lot, I asked on Instagram who wanted to see this post and I got a yes (mainly Aileen haha:)!) And of course seeing as I had the pictures of course I wanted to do a haul! If you didn't know Brandy Melville is an American shop which sells the softest and nicest clothes in THE W-O-R-L-D. So you should have seen my face when I saw the store in Chelsea *there is a post about this trip* and obviously I had to go in and obviously buy things.


two dresses- these I believe are called baby doll/shift/skater dress one of those three! I got them in a daisy print (as of course I'm flower crazy) and stripes because I don't have enough of that in my wardrobe either! Both were around £29 I believe, so not too bad for some soft laveeely dresses.

three tops- these tops caught my eye. One being a long sleeved striped top (super soft and cosy), the other a white floaty crop top which flatters very nicely (hey I might do a ootd on this) and a cami style red striped vest which I plan to wear with a bandeau. If you ever pass a Brandy Melville please please go inside, definitely worth it! (And if your going to America, make several trips) I tried on seventeen things!! I never ever have tried so much on in a store before. (Love at first sight if you ask me.....)
