My favourite thing about easter

Friday, 18 April 2014

It's officially Easter weekend :) everyone is off work today and I guess it's a time to spend with family. For me personally Easter doesn't have any meaning as I'm not religious. It is however a chance for people to indulge in chocolate.

I started off the day well as I went to the gym this morning, it was too busy :( aha. I came back after a really good workout and my mum decides we should make cakes, oh dear.

These chocolate nest cakes are incredible! so simple to make and so tasty. All you have to do is melt chocolate, butter and golden syrup in a bowl over hot water. Then crumble some shredded wheat in another bowl. Add the melted mixture to the shredded wheat and mix so all the shredded wheat is covered. Then spoon into cake cases and add some Cadbury's mini eggs on the top. And your done!

Mini eggs are my favourite chocolate and I indulge in them a bit too much!

For the quantities of ingredients I'm sure there are many recipes online

What's everyone up to this easter??

'Picnic Blanket' Dress

Sunday, 13 April 2014

Hello :) Quite a bit has happened since I last posted on here. So I'm back at uni my Easter holidays went too quick although I'm having a bit of time off lately. It was my birthday Tuesday so I'm now officially 20, mental! I don't feel any older although many people have assured me I'm old now. I got a tailors dummy so now I can hopefully create some beautiful costumes and model them on a stand woohoo :)
Anyways it's a beautiful day today so I just threw on this check print smock dress I got from Asos at Christmas. Both my dad and brother have now referred to it as a picnic blanket (they're so charming) so that's kinda my nickname for it now. I was a bit worried about wearing a smock dress as they may make me look bigger which is something I don't want. This one isn't too bad and its comfy.
Shocked at how pale my legs are, I need some sun, so wish I was going on holiday this summer :'(
Hope you've had a lovely weekend
