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!

The internet is such a strange world, and it is in fact its own world - so far from reality yet so close, it redefines society conceptually to be honest. The internet can bring such wonderful things into the world: the announcement of a new baby, an endless supply of fashion inspiration, the top news at the fastest rate, and so many amazing memories and conversations can be shared between the beautiful people on this planet. The internet is an extraordinary place, and even more so as someone who has grown up in this time of technology. I bloody love the internet and all it brings to the world, I honestly think the internet is such a great platform for humanity to connect, share and create.
However, I have been wondering my mind recently, quite intently, and have found myself shying away from the internet, and social media platforms. Despite the fact I have no huge following…

| Going Back To Basics | 10/10/17 |

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.

| The Truth About Student Life | 20/02/18 |

M O R N I N G 

I almost feel like I've forgotten how to write a blog post, so the format of this post might be a bit 'up in the air'. Therefore, before I delve into things, here's a quick disclaimer... On the 26th December, I uploaded a blog post surrounding the topic of social media, and the influence I feel it has on the mental health of its users. Since then, I have been absent from this blog, and largely absent from social media in general, because I feel as though I've had nothing worth saying recently. I would much rather only upload when I am bringing a little something useful to the internet that even if only one person found it interesting, it would at least have a purpose.
 This leads swiftly on to the subject of this post. Student life, and the truth about how it feels to experience daily life as a young adult, studying at University. I promise to not sugar coat the finer details, and to accurately portray the common notions of being a student. Shall we…
