Feburary favourites! xx

Hello again internet!!!!
Firstly, let me apoogolzise for not uploading any blog post I am so sorry, I was working all day and then I was so tired from barely sleeping all week due to college stress that I crashed, and didn't wake up for hours! I also felt too anxious to upload anything last week so I just needed a week off the internet. I am sorry I hope you understand!


Anyway, as you can tell I am going to be writing a monthly favourites for February (and yes i am keeping up with monthly favourites- I surprised myself, lets not jinx it haha)  This month is going to be super sort though as I didn't really buy anything as I never have time to shop, and I trying to save money up for Summer as I want to go travelling on road trips a lot ( as long as I can drive by then-I should be) so there is not much for me to show you that's new and talk about this month. Also I am staying at my best friends this weekend (writing this on Thursday) so I might not upload this on time but I will try, just might have to steal her wifi for abit to upload lol!  Saying that there are a couple of things I recently bought this month that I want to talk about !



BOOKS!


 Aww my favourite subject!!!

1. The Manifesto on How To Be Interesting by Holly Bourne- OMG I am currently still reading this ~(almost finished) I have been reading this non stop for about two weeks now (I know I am a very slow reader, trying to get better and faster at reading! explain reasons why I struggle with this and I shall explain why in a blog post in  about three weeks),  I have not been able to put this down (even got caught reading in my tutorial class last week , problems of a bookworm haha! luckily since tutorial isn't important and my tutor is nice she let me keep reading, yay! )  I love this so much, not going to say much more as I am planning on doing a book review about this soon , when I have finished reading it, so click the follow button so you can see that! ;)
2. How Hard Can Love Be? by Holly Bourne (can you tell Holly Bourne is my all time favourite author ? haha lol) instantly when I shopping and saw this and didn't even read the title or blurb just saw it was by Holly and went to buy it, that's how much I think Holly Bourne is amazing writer, I hope to be a brilliant writer like her one day! I hope Holly NEVER stops writing! also I hope she working a new book, I want to read that too!!
3. Fat Dad Fat Kid, by Shay and Gavin Butler, This is the book I went into Waterstones to buy when I bought How Hard Can Love Be? I spent a little bit too much money that day oops! Fat Dad Fat Kid was written by the dad (Shay) and oldest son (Gavin) of my favourite daily vlogging family called the SHAYTARDS, incase you didn't know who  released a book in December and it has been out for ages and I have only just got my hands on a copy as anytime I tried to buy it was sold out! I am very excited to read this when I have finished The Manifesto on How To Be Interesting and How hard can love be ? and then I read Fat Dad Fat Kid (and then may read Holly's first book again Am I normal yet ? and then The manifesto on how to be interesting and how hard can love be / (told you she is my favourite author!)

OK so that's all the books I have recently bought (told you it was short, I am trying to save money for summer so I cant spend much on books and things !)

Other Random things:

oh how I love random things!!
 

1. This SUPER  FLUFFY dressing gown- Primark £10  
OMG this is just so fluffy and comfty (and yes I am wearing it as writing now, and yes its like middle of the day on Friday! sssshhh!!! hahah!!  )  I thought it was about time I treated myself to a really fluffy dressing gown! and super cheap as well!




2. Capture Life Wall quote- Primark £2

This I thought was so cute! it has such a cute quote on it which I love as I love love love photography!! It also matches the colour scheme of my bedroom!- It has blue round the edges (you cant see the edges on the image) and is just adorable only £2 I was impressed and had to get it!


3. LOVE Photo Frame Primark (not sure on actual price I think it was £3)

This is just an adorable photo frame! as you can see I have a picture of me and my best friend (ignore that fact its an old picture from like more then a year ago and I look very messy as  didn't have make up on or put a brush through my hair before we took this!) but how cute? I couldn't resist as you can never have enough photo frames !!!!


Can you tell I love primark? haha pretty much everything except books, lush and art stuff is from primark these days , the are so cheap (which helps when being a student!) and super good quality!!

How to bake Valentines day themed heart chocolate chip cookies xxxx

Hi everyone!!!
Happy Valentines Day!! don't worry if you like me and don't have a prince just yet, every princess has to wait for her prince!! and Valentine's day doesn't have to be about sharing the day with a partner, you could just have a girly pamper day with you best friend or even just take the day to treat yourself!! 
Let me apologize for not writing and uploading a blog post, a Sunday photography and a video last week , I am sorry I just was very busy last week with finishing college deadlines before half term ( week off no college yay!!but I have to go back to college on Monday though-boo hoo, haha), I am sorry that I didn't upload I was very busy and very anxious and didn't feel up to uploading last week, I hope you understand.

Anyway in the theme of valentines day, I thought I would show you guys how I baked these very cute chocolate chip heart cookies :) I made these yesterday and they turned out better then I thought!!! So here is how to make love heart shaped chocolate chip cookies so ou can give them to your partner or your best friend or a group of friends on valentine's day and share your love!!




STEP 1:
 Get out all you ingredients and untensils: for this you will need:

Utensils :
- Weighing scales
-A baking tray
-A cooling rack or a plate or something to put them on when they come out the oven(not on this image)
-a rolling pin (again not on this image below sorry)
-Greasing/baking paper to line your baking tray with, or just something to grease your baking tray with...
-a heart shaped cookie cutter (I don't know where mine is from my sister bought it for me ages ago, but I am sure you can find a simple heart cookie cutter anywhere just search around)
-A large mixing bowl and wooden spoon.


Ingredients:
-225 grams of self raising flour
-1 large egg
-1 and 1/2 teaspoon of a pinch of salt
1 bag of chocolate chips (or how ever many chocolate chips you want)
-100 grams of sugar (originally the recipe I looked at said brown sugar but I used just regular caster sugar and turned out well )
-125 grams of unsalted butter

STEP 2
Measure out your ingredients and pre heat oven to 200 degrees or gas mark 4


STEP 3
Mix dry ingredients, so mix your sugar and flour together GRADUALLY and then add the egg and vanilla and salt together and then GRADUALLY add your butter in until you get something like this...



Now add chocolate chips and mix in..

STEP 4
find a clean surface and sprinkle and cover in flour. Grab you cookie dough and flour the top and bottom and place on the floured surface. Grab your rolling pin and heart cutter!


STEP 5
roll out your dough until about 2 cm thick or until you think is ok, obviously the thicker it is the less cookies you will have but thinner you will have more.. just depends how thick you want, I did about this below and same again and got 7 cookies out of it all, so if you want more roll it out thinner.

STEP 6
The fun bit! Cut out your cookies!!!


 obviously if you have any spare cookie dough that you cant make into a full cookie then just eat it as a treat for you as cookie dough is the only baking thing that's ok to eat raw!!



STEP 7
Place on baking trays CAREFULLY...

STEP 8
Put in your preheated oven and BAKE for about 10 minutes or until when you put your finger on middle of cookie it bounces back and doesn't stay flat. basically until they are cooked or start going slighty golden.
STEP 9
put on a cooling rack or a plate and leave until cool..


 as you can see I am now left with 6 but had 7 as transferring them to cooling rack one fell on the floor so be careful!!!!!
STEP 10
Present to friends and family and enjoy!!!!


Hope you enjoyed this type of blog post! let me know as if you like and enjoy my baking stuff I will do more :)

happy valentines day again.. don't worry if you find it hard! I do but I love you!!!! you don't have to be with a boyfriend/girlfiend just find your friend and family and spend time with them! do something fun with your friends that normally never do!! or just spend the day treating yourself!!!

I love each and every one of you!!!!
