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!

Winter Coat Styling & The Most Important Aspects Of Life.

Evening everyone, I hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far and are keeping warm and cosy in this awfully miserable British weather. I also expect that you have seen the John Lewis Christmas Advert for this year, or else you're a slight scrooge and complete disappointment. Watch it here before you continue to read this blog post, if you haven't already indulged in the festivity because it is wildlife-filled and exceeds the word cute.

American politics aside, I am hopeful that you have all had a great week working hard, and are being rewarded with a relaxing weekend so far. There's nothing quite like a chilled out weekend after a busy week. Lush.

HEY DUDES!

In less than a month I am tooting off to Spain for the festival Benicassim with George and some friends, so the next couple of posts are going to be pretty central to outfits relating to festival attire and what I've been wearing during my trip. So, this is the last 'normal' outfit I will be posting for a few weeks, yet to be honest, this is still relatively holiday appropriate. Hope you enjoy.

sorry about the awful brow game...lol

The focal point of this post is evidently this insane shirt by ASOS. When I first came across this shirt on the ASOS website, I absolutely fell in love with the back detailing of it, and also the sketchiness(?) that the print provides. I was also really digging the orange and pink vibes, alongside all the other colours proudly displayed on this piece. However, I must say when it arrived by the lovely DPD that knows me very well now (lol) it really didn't loo…

| Autumn Is On The Way | 12/09/17 |

I am in absolute shock at how quickly this year is passing us by, how is it already September? As we all know, September is that time of year where everyone goes back to school/college/uni and we begin the much anticipated warm up to hot chocolate, fluffy socks and CHRISTMAS. Fear not, don't run away, I'm not one of those crazy Christmas people who begins to prepare the following Christmas in January, its just something to think about...


Autumn is becoming apparent now, and leaves will soon be falling from the trees, boots and coats will be dusted off from last year, and we will all begin to say those forbidden words, 'I am so cold'. Alongside many, Autumn is one of my favourite times of year, particularly in terms of fashion. I am a huge fan of comfort over style (ironically) so Autumn gives me the perfect excuse to allow my baggy jumpers and checked shirts to pass as fashion pieces. So today, I thought I would share with you all my first composed AW17 look. Please e…
