Holiday Lookbook

Hey!

Over the Easter holidays I had the pleasure of visiting Tunisia with my family. Whilst I was there I decided to film a holiday lookbook to go onto my YouTube channel, featuring some simple outfits that I wore throughout the week. I may upload a separate post featuring some photos I took whilst I was away, but for now here's the video...

CLICK HERE! 

The shops where the clothes are from are listed in the down-bar, this video features a lot of Primark! 

Apologies for the lack of posting, it's getting to that time of year where I have lots of exams and am completely stressed out - I'll be back posting a lot more regularly after June 17th!  

Lots of Love

Triple Chocolate Cookies


Hey Guys - here's how you can make a batch of this gooey, chocolatey naughtiness! 

I have ALWAYS failed at trying to make some gooey cookies, until I stumbled across this recipe. So if you're like me and love cookies but haven't found a recipe that's worked yet for you...I think you've just found it! Stick to the instructions and you'll be very happy you tried it out :)


Ingredients

  • 200g or 0.8 cup = butter 
  • 300g or 1.2 cup = caster sugar 
  • 1 large egg 
  • 275g or 2 cups = self raising flour 
  • 75g or 1/2 cup = cocoa powder 
  • A little dash of milk (optional)
  • A large bar of white, milk and dark chocolate 
= Approximately 10 cookies 

Directions

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 200c or 392f 
  2. Firstly you need to whizz together your butter and sugar until it's a smooth consistency.
  3. Crack in the egg, put in your dry ingredients and blend it all together. (If your mixture looks too dry, add some milk) 
  4. Now for the chocolate! Break it all up into chunks and throw into your mixture.
  5. Once you've mixed the chocolate in, line two (you might need 3) trays with baking paper and prepare to get messy! 
  6. Use your hands to separate the mixture into ten blobs (approximately a bit bigger than gold balls) 
  7. Now it's time to put them in the oven, for 11 minutes. Yes, 11 minutes. You'll look at them after 11 minutes and think I'm mad, but trust me don't put them in for longer or you won't get gooey cookies! 
  8. After the 11 minutes is up, allow them to cool for 30 minutes. They will continue to bake through at this time and after half an hour they will be perfect!
ENJOY! 
Talk Soon
Love

Gooey Easter Nests


Hey! 

Who doesn't love a classic chocolate Easter nest? But it's time for an upgrade! This recipe is super easy, with only 4 main ingredients and the nests are ready to eat within 15 minutes. These are personal favourites of mine and I hope you love them just as much. 


You Will Need: 

  • Approximately 18 cup cake cases 
  • A saucepan 
  • Weighing scales 
  • A bowl 

Ingredients

  • 3oz - 85g - 3/8 cup = Butter 
  • 3oz - 85g - 3/8 cup = Golden Syrup
  • 3 Mars Bars 
  • No specific weight = Rice Krispies / Corn Flakes / Wheatabix 
  • ( Optional for decoration = Mini Eggs )
= Approximately 18 Easter nests 

Directions

  1. Measure out the butter and place it into the saucepan over a medium heat so that it begins to melt. Next, measure out your golden syrup and apply it to the butter. 
  2. Chop the Mars Bars into small chunks (this will make it quicker for them to melt) and add them to the mixture. Constantly stir over a medium heat so that all the mixture has melted. 
  3. Remove from the heat so it begins to cool. *Careful, the syrup can become very hot!* When the mixture is still slightly warm you can add your choice of dry ingredients (Rice Krispies / Corn Flakes / Wheatabix). I haven't stated a certain amount of dry ingredients that should be added because it can vary, simple add a little at a time and build it up as you go along - it all needs to be covered in the gooey deliciousness! 
  4. Add a mini egg to top it off! 
Enjoy!
Happy Easter 
Love 
Abi
