Winter warmer!

Nutella hot chocolate :)

1 cup milk,
1/2 cup water,
2 level tbsp nutella,
2 level tsp cocoa powder,
1 level tbsp corn flour, (mixed with 2-3 tbsp water)
Whipped cream,
1/4 tsp cocoa powder.

In a sauce pan heat up the milk and water. When it begins to simmer add the nutella and cocoa powder. When it begins to boil, in a separate bowl mix together the cornflour and 2-3 tbsp water. Add to the pan and continue to boil for another minute or two whisking all the time. (You may need to turn it down every now and again because it will foam up high)

You can adjust the amount of nutella and milk according to taste.

Enjoy :)

Justin Bieber's Believe Acoustic Album

Now, i'm not trying to be biased because I am a super duper huge Justin Bieber fan but his new version of Believe and some extra songs are pretty amazing. The songs that are extremely upbeat and catchy dance songs have been turned into beautiful ballads even my mum were impressed with! And shes far from crazy about Justin Bieber. This album arrived at my house today (Wednesday 13th February) and I was excited to play it, and when I did I was extremely impressed myself with the album. Its a good interpretation of another side of Justin Bieber. The extra songs added to the original Believe album are great songs to be added. They are also good quality songs even if he is talking about a Yellow Raincoat in one of them, haha. I must say this album is a good way to spend your money, I bought my album for £9 from amazon but since ordering it have seen it for cheaper in other places such as iTunes for £6.99!
Really do recommend this album its deffinately a good listen! <3

Moisturiser wanted!

Hey! I have really sensitive skin like my best friend and i'm looking for a really good moisturiser to match my skin and can do a good job on a budget!
Can anyone recommend a good one, please comment or email- on my contact page :) Please I need one hehe :)

Pancake Tuesday :')

Ok, so surprisingly I didn't whip up some amazing contraption of spices, herbs, mixes of fruit or chocolate for my pancakes. I'm pretty basic when it comes to the thin pancakes and I keep it to Lemon & Sugar! But I see all your pics of Nutella and different fruit, and it all looks pretty good! And if my dad's out i'm stuck having small pancakes because I dont trust myself to flip pancakes, which is neccessary for the big pan!
I loooove pancake tuesday because it's an amazing excuse to eat as many pancakes as possible!
And I wish my pancakes looks as good as these haha, but a batter pack, 1 egg and 300ml of water does the trick and they don't taste half bad!
Hope you enjoyed tuesday! <3

Taylor Swift Red album review

So a few months I bought Taylor Swifts newest album! I love Taylor Swift and have for quite a few years.I love all the songs on it, or atleast most of them, you have to agree 'we are never getting back together' has been over-played... I'm alwaaaays listening to the album and often become addicted to individual song :D I am impressed with the album and is a slightly different sound from Taylor, but still lovable.I recommend the album because, I know most of them are love songs and you may e bord of that sort of stuff, but the songs are great and the sound is brilliant.

Crackle Nail Polish -bord had nothing to recommend haha x

So, around 6 months ago the 'crackle nail polish' was all the craze. I mean i'm not a massive nail painter to start with but these intreeged me ... So when I was in Primark and saw that they had some I bought some, and only for a couple of pound for a undercoat, crackle coat and clear coat, I was all for it. When I got home I tried this strange nail polish. It wasnt too bad, I mean it done its job but I think you have to choose your colour carefully... I had the white undercoat with black crackle, and it kind of look like my nail varnish was just chipping. I recommend bright colours or golds. They do them in a range of colours and for a couple of pound a pop, they do an alright job!
