My New Favourite Dress

Recently I went into London to see the play Thriller, which was really good by the way. It finished earlier than we thought, as we booked the table for a bit later, we had some time to kill. So we went walking around and we went into Zara Kids to look for some clothes for my little sister. When we were in there this particular beautiful dress caught my eye and I thought at first, ohh I wish I was like 8 against I could fit into that Zara Kids dress. However I looked again and this dress looked bigger than the other clothes and I walked over, saw it was 13years and I thought 'I think I might actually be able to fit into this' and it was on sale, what more could you want?! Therefore, I tried it on and it fitted me almost perfectly! I was over the moon, its my new favourite dress and I thought I'de share it with you, as its so pretty... Sadly its not on the website, however it may still be in the shops. Its a swing dress and has a really cute pattern, full of colours- blues and reds. I love it. Its really flattering and flows so well.
Heres the dress...

This dress is sort of similar but not really the same at all, but I tried it was the closest:
I hope you enjoyed this post.
I shall see you on Thursday at 8:30pm British Time.

Winter to Spring

I'm sure we all created some beautiful memories in Winter but its time... Spring is on its way and winter is slowly going, although the other day it did start snowing?! For some reason, I always think Spring is a odd season, as no one really gets very excited for Spring, which is really sad. Its true though, if I were to forget any season it would probably be spring :( However I thought I would't write this post to make me more excited for spring as there are actually a lot of brilliant things in Spring. Also I find spring is a happy season, I don't know why but it always pops in my mind when I think of spring!

Reasons I love Spring:
Flowers start to bloom- I always feel like flowers make you happy and the famous daffodils bloom
Trees start to get their leaves back- Which I find always makes the world more lively 
Colour starts to appear again- Colour always makes me smile and it makes life bright
Easter and chocolate ;)- Of course the chocolate eggs are a classic and very yummy
More light in day- I feel more productive when its lighter and I can do more things in a day
The temperature starts to rise- Which means you don't have to wrap up so much
Strawberry picking- This is a classic and you always eat as much strawberries as you can
Spring Cleaning- This is a chance for a fresh start, to clear out and start all fresh

They are only a few. Dn't be afraid to comment more down below. I love reading all the comments.
I hope you enjoyed and I shall see you soon!

Happy Valentines Day

Hello Happy Valentines Day!
Today is the day... Its Valentine Day. I hope you are all having a lovely day with love ones or just on your own, whatever, just a nice day genuinely. Personally, I don't mean to be a downer but I, me personally, I'm not a massive fan of Valentines day, I just find it too over commercialised, but I know some people who love it so I just wanted to wish you a nice day. Don't forget to treat yourself aswell. Just remember if you don't have anyone, its all fine because your way too special, I don't have anyone either don't worry and don't rush. If you do have some one lucky you, treasure this day! Still don't forget to tell them you love them, and not just on Valentine day.

I shall see you soon

A Sick Day Routine

So everybody has those days when the are really ill and have to stay at home, and you expect it to be all fun when actually its the opposite, well for me, I actually want to go to school. Being ill such a horrible thing, when your fine you want to stay at home, however when your actually ill and stay at home you want to go to school. Its confusing, I know. Well anyway, today I am ill, so I decided its a perfect opportunity to write blog posts, and tell you what I do on my 'Sick Day Routine'
I normally sleep for a lot of the time as I'm usually really tired and ill, so all you want to do is sleep, but thats quite boring. Also I always have a shower once I get up as I always find if you clean yourself you always feel better as you feel a lot better about yourself. An essential is you must get comfy: get a hot water bottle, a hot chocolate, just give yourself a treat as your ill. This is your day to relax; get your laptop out and do whatever you want, maybe have a youtube marathon, watch a movie... Whatever you want.
My essentials are always some warm nice socks, hot chocolate of course, warm comfy clothes; jogging bottoms and a comfy jumper and top, movie and some facial wipes along with your favourite fragrance, as that always makes you feel better and more normal. Personally, for me I hate missing out so I have to know whats going on at school and look at it at home as I hate being behind, I know thats strange but its me! That is what I do and some essentials, I hope you aren't sick especially over the holiday.

See you soon, I may be posting more as its the half term. Shhhh. So don't forget to stop by.

Baking Triple Choc Cookies

So I was in a baking mood and I just decided I shall bake. I wanted to try a new recipe and I thought what a better idea than to try Tanya Burrs Cookies. They are amazing, its hard on the outside but chewing and soft inside its like the perfect combination and they taste amazing! I have tried the milk and chocolate chip cookies but not these triple chocolate ones. I do have to say I do prefer the milk and chocolate chip. However, they both taste so good. I got the recipe from her book, which I recently got 'Love Tanya' which is so good, also I believe she may be releasing a new book just with recipes?! I could be wrong?? You may correct me. It would be so good, I'd definitely buy it, she could be a professional baker, I've never tried anything like them. Anyway, the cookies are delicious you have to try them...

This is how you make them:

You will need:
200g butter
300g caster sugar
1 large egg
275g self-raising flour
75g cocoa powder
a little dash of milk
a large bar of milk chocolate
a large bar of white chocolate
a large bar of dark chocolate  (you don't have to add all 3)
Preheat your oven on to 200 degrees celsius
Mix together your butter and sugar
Crack in your egg
Stir in all the dry ingredients
Add a dash of milk if your mixture is looking dry
Break up all of your chocolate and throw it in the bowl full of mixture then mix it all together
Line 2 trays with baking paper (the cookies will spread in the oven so don’t place them close together)
Break the mixture into balls and place them onto your trays, bear in mid they will grow
Pop them into the oven for 11 minutes – However when you get them out they will not look cooked, it is very tempting to leave them in for longer but they’ll be hard and overcooked once they are cool, and won't be as nice. Take your cookies out after 11 minutes and leave them to cool for about 30 minutes.
Now enjoy a biscuit, you will now be amazed!
I hope you enjoyed. I will see you on thursday at 8:30pm British time.
See you soon
