Angel brownies


Morning guys, 

So yesterday I decided it would be fun to make some brownies but also adding a Christmas twist! So I whipped out my rose gold Angel cutter that I purchased from Sainsbury's - it's currently in the sale for something crazy like £1 and 'tried' to make some yummy festive treats. ALSO; this is my first baking themed blog post, therefore you have to let me off for poor aesthetics on the presentation front!! 

YOU WILL NEED:
100G COCOA
250G BUTTER
500G CASTER SUGAR
4 BEATEN EGGS
100G SELF-RAISING FLOUR
OPTIONAL: ICING SUGAR TO DUST

So firstly, preheat the oven to 180-160 degrees Celsius and then you need to measure out the cocoa, butter and sugar, and pop them in a large saucepan. Keep the heat on the hob low, it just needs to gently melt the ingredients together. Keep mixing too, or it'll stick to the bottom of the pan which is no good!

Then, once mixed together, beat your eggs, and slowly add to the mixture. Only add a little at a time, mix, then add a bit more! It will look a little sloshy, but don't worry, it's supposed to (I think). 

Once the egg is nicely mixed in, add your flour and mix once more until everything is altogether. 

Once you're finished, grab a large baking tin, line it with grease-proof paper so that the brownies don't stick to the pan, and pour in the mixture. Once level, and once you've licked the spoon clean (I know you want to) then pop your mixture in the oven for around 45 mins. Double check them after 30 mins to see how they're getting on, because mine took only 40 mins so I think you just have to use your initiative to be honest!

Once they're ready, leave them out to cool on a cooling tray, until they're cool enough to handle. 


Once cooled, whip out your favourite cutter, and start to carefully press onto the brownies. I could only get 5/6 angels out of my mixture, but if you double the ingredients or make a second batch or just use a smaller cutter, you will get a lot more out! Finally, once you've cut them all out, sprinkle some icing sugar onto them so they look pretty and there you have it, the perfect festive treat! 

I hope you liked my post, sorry it's not a fashion one haha and sorry I'm no Mary Berry!

HAPPY BAKING!

Gooood morning, and welcome back to the blog. Today, I wanted to share with you another post from my first fashion photo shoot. This outfit, I feel, is perfect for this transitional period, and is also verging on the smart side of fashion (for me anyway, lol). I really enjoyed piecing together this outfit, and trying to experiment with my personal style. As you all undoubtedly know, I often opt for the comfier garments and that aspect of my style definitely is portrayed through most of my blog posts. But equally, trying something new is exhilarating, particularly with Autumn homing into view so I want to diversify my wardrobe. I am loving the tailored look, and am growing fonder of fitted tops that enhance my body a lot more than a baggy tshirt or oversized jacket would.

Morning everyone, and welcome back to the blog. Today I wanted to share with you a very autumnal outfit, that I am dearly in love with. When it comes to planning outfits to shoot, it can honestly take me hours to complete a single look, but this outfit was a rarity in the sense I rustled it up in about twenty minutes, so I am thrilled with the outcome. As I mentioned in my last post, outfit planning and styling is definitely a love/hate situation for me, so finding an outfit that is fleeky with ease is a wonderful feeling.

So, lets begin with the coat. I am a huge lover of coats, and I am admittedly beginning to accumulate quite the collection of jackets and winter coats, however this is my newest addition to my wardrobe coat-wise, and I picked this up on the Asos website. This pea/military style coat is by New Look and was an incredible price of ab…

SUP GUYS! How are we all doing this morning? 
I am currently sat on my bed in the late afternoon, with a hot cup of tea to hand (hopefully I won't forget about it), and I am really digging deep in my thoughts in terms of what I want to talk about today. A stressed student, on the cusp of several deadlines and all I can think about is this blog post. Blogging is a funny thing, sometimes it is my ultimate escape where I can just unwind and spill out onto the page whatever springs to mind. But sometimes, blogging can feel overwhelming, like I am being forced to think about my reality in its most raw state, and sometimes life is not all fun and games, and I just don't really want to come to terms with my busy mind. 
Before I babble on about life and bore you all, lets jump straight in to the outfit I have styled for you t…
