'White lace and promises.'

This afternoon I noticed that my Pinterest page is filled with loads of pictures of white lace dresses, skirts and tops.  I think finding one for myself soon is in order;)

I think it would be so amazing to do something like this in my room.  Yay, a new art project:D

Moustaches and tea.

Last weekend I had a bunch of people over for what was supposed to be a tea party in the garden for my birthday, but thanks to the rain it ended up being an indoor picnic.  We ate a ton of food, drank tea and took pictures with mustaches.  Here are a few pictures from a lovely afternoon...

Brownies get in my stomach.

These are honestly some of the best things I've ever tasted.  It's like a chewy, chocolate explosion of yum in your mouth.

180g milk chocolate
150g unsalted butter
125g plain flour
300g brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
15g cocoa powder
1/2  tsp of baking powder
1 pinch of salt


1.     Preheat oven to 180o C.
2.     Melt 90g of the chocolate and the butter over a saucepan on the stove.

3.     Sieve the four, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in a separate bowl.
 4.     In another bowl, beat the eggs, and then add the sugar and vanilla extract.

5.     Fold the melted chocolate mixture into the beaten eggs mixture, and then fold in the flour mixture and the other 90g of broken chocolate.

6.     Pour the mixture into a greased tin and bake for 30 minutes.

Now eat them.

Last Friday night I baked these cookies and I must admit they turned out to be pretty darn good.  They're just the right amount of crispy outside, chewy inside for my liking.

  • 2 cups + 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 170grams of salted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of Smarties, 1/2 cup chopped pecan nuts, 1/2 cup of chocolate chips


1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
2. Melt in the microwave and cool butter in the fridge for 20 minutes, then set aside.
3. In a bowl, mix the flour and baking soda together. In a separate bowl, combine the butter and sugars with a whisk. Then add the egg, egg yolk, vanilla and mix everything together.
4. Slowly add the flour and baking soda mixture to the bowl until a dough forms. 
5. Fold in the smarties, pecan nuts and choc chips.

6. Put the dough in the fridge for about 10 minutes.
7. Take the dough out, then using a tablespoon, spoon out two tablespoons of dough and roll it into one ball. Take the ball and rip the dough in half. Place the ripped side down on the baking tray, and then take the second half and squish it on the first half. Leave about 5cm of space between each cookie.

8. Bake for 14-18 minutes or until edges are starting to get slightly brown.
9. Lastly eat and enjoy:D

Hello and welcome to my wardrobe.

Ah how I love shopping with birthday money... These are both from Mr Price, which I must admit really seems to have improved over the last couple months, having brought in a lot more stuff like this.

Denim get in my face.

So I know it's a little late to be saying this, seeing as though we have now left winter and are chugging straight towards another grossly hot summer (Boohoo, she cried),  but basically I'd love me a denim shirt like one of these from Asos.  Only, one maybe a little more within my budget? :(
