Current Skin Care Products

Hi Guys!!! 

So, today I wanted to show you guys the products that I currently use for skin care and what I think of them . Lets get started :)

In Shower Products 
These are the two products that I use in the shower other than just regular soap obviously.
The first thing that is in this picture is Johnson's Baby Oil. Once I have finished showering I usually tern of the water then rub this all over me while I am still wet and I am not kidding, it makes my skin feel INCREDIBLE!!Lots of beauty Bloggers and Youtubers have been raving about this lately and I can now see where they were coming from.
The second thing in this picture is Zoella's 'Creamy Madly Dreamy' body lotion from her beauty product collection. I love the smell of this and although I don't think it is meant to be used in the shower I like to rub it on my arms and legs in there because using it as a sort of shower gel works really well with this product. It has a very floral sent but it isn't too strong at all and has a great all seasons smell. Using water also helps to rub it into your skin even though it actually absorbs very well on dry skin too so I would recommend it for both.

Body Products 
The first product in this picture is Vaseline Essential Moisture. I use this immediately after I shower and have dried my body. I use it on mostly my arms and legs and it really helps to get some moister into my dry skin which is most;y just my arms and legs. It dries very quickly and doesn't really have a sent which is good sometimes if you have sensitive skin. I couldn't find that link to this product so I have left one for a slightly different product from Vaseline, the only different thing is the packaging and that name really  
The second product here is a moisturise that I found in my house a few months ago and I have no idea what it is called or where it is from, sorry :( I use it all over my body except my arms and legs because it is quite freelanced and my dry skin doesn't really like that
The last product here is Palmer's Cocoa Butter. I mainly use this on my feet because they get very dry, but I also use it on my hips where I have some stretch marks and it's really good for getting them to fade, and it smells like chocolate  which is a massive plus! :)

Face Products 
The first product that I to clean my face is Clearasil Daily Gel Wash. I wet my face and rub it on my T zone ( for head, nose, chin)  then wash it of with a wet flannel. This product prevents me from getting spots to badly and keeps my face clean. And another really cool thing is its BLUE as in the actual gel is blue. Don't why I think that really cool I just do. 
Another thing I use to clean my face is Simple Kind To Skin Moisturiser. I just rub this all on my face and that about it but it is very good for keeping my skin soft because it is very pure and watery on my skin so it keeps it from getting dry
And to remove my make up I use Johnson's Face Care wipes and even though I know that using an actual make up remover is better for your skin than wipes but sometimes, a girl needs to be a bit quick when removing her make up and wipes are less faffy than a remover. I do have a remover that I use but it is actually my mums so I thought I couldn't really add it in her. And I cant find it.....

I really hope you enjoyed this slightly different post an please let me know if you would like to see more of these review type post and beauty posts. 
Thanks for reading!! 

See ya soon!! Xx

Nutella Cookies!

Hi GUYS!!!!

So, today I am going to show you my recipe for Nutella cookies!

you will need:

  • 125 g butter
  • 100 g brown sugar
  • 125 g caster sugar 
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 225 g self-raising flour
  • 200 g chocolate chips 


1. pre heat the oven to 180 degrees

2. Cream together the butter and the sugars, once creamed then combine in the egg and vanilla.

3.Then, sift the flour and then mix together with either a wooden spoon or like me, you could use an electric mixer. My mum got a Kitchen Aid for her birthday and it is soooooo beautiful and really good for making cookies so I would recommend it greatly

This is our one. Isn't she pretty!!??

And in case you wanted to know this is the attachment I used. I think this one is best for cookie dough

4. Role the mixture into balls and but on lined backing trays. We weighed the balls and we made 10 cookies with them each weighing 60 g or there abouts

5. Next flatten the balls down into a circular shape. Then, but a small blob of Nutella on one side, then fold it over so that the Nutella in encased inside the cookie. Make sure it is still a cookie shape though! :)

6. Bake them for 10 mins

7. Take them out and leave to cool for a further 10 mins. 

8. While they cool, melt the Nutella that is still in you jar by putting I tin the microwave BUT make sure you take off ALL THE FOIL before because otherwise you WILL break your microwave. I almost did (LOL)   
9. Put some of the melted Nutella over the cookies and put them in the fridge for a few minuets to set if you want. I only put them in for about 5 mins so that the actual cookies didn't go hard, but don't worry if they do because they will soften again if you leave them out

10. Enjoy your delicious cookies with a cup of tea! :) (this part is essential. You CAN NOT miss is out. I am being serious. If you don't eat them I will. They are that good.)       

Here is how mine turned out. I think they look pretty good! 

See ya soon!!!

Whats In My School Bag?

Hi Guys!!!!

So, since almost everyone has gone back to school now I thought that I would do a whats it my school bag post. I was inspired to do this by my very good friend Julia who did a YouTube video (go check her out she is awesome her name is The Little World Of Julia) on this and it looked really fun so I thought sins I am WAY to shy to do YouTube I am doing it on my blog. 
So lets begin....

So, this is my bag... 

I got this bag from Jack Wills (duh!) but I stupidly cant remember how much it was ;( But yeh its sooo cute and it fits loads of stuff because its exactly the right size for an A4 book

So, this is the first pencil case in my bag. I got in in Accesorise for £3.00 on sale. Its soooooo pretty and the best part is on the other side it says the words ' Fly Away' on it witch in the name of one of 5sos's new songs so of course... I love it 
Inside this pencil case I have some felt tip and some fine liners, both from W H Smiths

This is my glasses case I got from a little shop in Sheringham that I went to for £6.00. I only need my glasses for reading because I have a astigmatism in my left eye (#fancywords) witch means that it is not a foot ball shape like it should be, it is more of a rugby ball shape witch means that I get really bad head aches sometimes (insert aw). I'm still getting used to that glasses life 

Next is is this adorable pencil case from W H smiths, where I keep all girly things like lip salve, hair band and grips and a bunch if other stuff

This is my calculator witch I got from Sainsbureys or Tesco, cant remember, and I thought it just being pink was far too boring so I (badly) coloured in the buttons with sharpie

This is my portable charger that I got from New Look for around £10.00. Its sooooooo useful to have in your school bag because we all know that if you phone runs out at school that the rest of that day ruined! So don't let it happen guys, get one of these bad boys. 

Just your stranded 30cm ruler

This is my little book where I take down notes in classes. Its super cute with a little elephant on it. My amazing friend Julia who I mentioned earlier got this for my for my birthday this year from Paperchase 

This is my mane pencil case with all of my stationary bits in it. I got this from H&M for aroung £4.00. 
Inside it there is........

These two pens from Jarolds stationary 

These 2 15cm rulers from god knows where

These adorable pastel pencils from H&M 

These 4 highlighters from W H Smiths

And this sharpener and rubber from W H Smiths also 

Next from my bag is my phone. I got the case that is on it from Jack Wills and I always keep my ear phones with my phone so that when I'm bored at break and lunch I have something to do.   

In this pencil case I have some pencils, coloured pencils to be precise! I got this pencil case from W H Smiths and the pencils also from W H Smiths. 

This is the book that I just finished reading called All The Bright Places. I would recommend this book to anyone and also tell them that it will without a doubt make you cry and you will for sure fall in love with the main character, Finch. I'm not going to tell you what its about so that you guys can go and reading knowing nothing just like I did and still LOVE it !!! I'm pretty sure this is my favourite book ever!! 

This is the next thing in my bag is my locker key and the key rig on there is from Accesorise and I don't know how much it was soz!

Then next I have got my good old geometry set from Jarolds Stationary 

Then the last thing that I have in my bag is this diary where I always write down my homework and, just having a dairy is just soooooo helpful in high school so I really recommend getting one of these if you are in school whether thats primary or secondary.

So, thats everything in my school bag fro 2015. If you enjoyed this post be sure to let me know and also tell me what you would like me to post about next! 

see ya soon Xx

Oreo Cupcakes!

Hi Guys!!

So today I am going to be showing you how to make some Oreo Cupcakes!!

So lets get right into it ....

To make these yummy cupcakes you will need...

For the cakes

  • 200g plain flour                      
  • 40g cocoa powder 
  • 280g caster sugar 
  • 3 stp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 80g unsalted butter 
  • 240ml milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 12 Oreos
  • lots of mini Oreos
  • 12 muffin cases
For the frosting
  • 100g unsalted butter 
  • 160g cream cheese
  • 350g icing suger
  • 6 Oreos 
You will also need a big mixing bole, a wooden spoon, an electric mixer, a piping bag, baking tray, measuring spoons and some normal spoons

Before you start you need to preheat the oven to 170C/160fan. Then, line a muffin tray will muffin cases, then half some Oreos and put them in the bottom of the cases with any with cream on facing up like this...

Next, put the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt and butter in a big old bole and mix it until you get an almost sandy consistency and everything is mixed.
Then, whisk the milk, eggs and vanilla extract in a separate bole (soz forgot to mention that earlier!) then slowly add to the main mixture and mix well to get rid of any lumpy bits. Then gradually add the rest of the mixture and mix until smooth.
The add the mixture to the muffin cases so they are about 2/3 full, then bake them for 20 to 25 minutes 
Whilst the muffins are baking put 6 Oreos in a sandwich bag like this.....

Then mash them with a rowing pin until they are really tiny pieces. I can not stress enough that the pieces need to be REALLY small otherwise when you try to pipe the icing it wont work!
Next, whisk the butter, cream cheese and icing sugar until its all fluffy, then plop in those Oreos

One the cakes are done, let them cool on a cooling rack them pipe the icing on them and add some mini Oreod on top for decoration

This was my final result!!

I hope you liked this post and if you try these out then please let me know and send me some pictures on twitter so I can see. I got this recipe from BBC Good Food just in case you wanted to know 

see ya soon Xx

On Getting A Puppy

Hi Guys!!!

So, as I mentioned in a previous post, I have a 10 month old puppy dog called Margot. To me, she is honestly THE cutest thing IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!


This morning when I was playing with her and her sister who has come to stay, I was thinking about how much easier she is to look after now, compared to when we got her. 
So, I decided to compile (look at me usein' ma big words!) a list of things that are really helpful to know when, first of all getting your puppy and second, caring for it after you have welcomed him or her to your family!! :)
Lets get started!!! (warning this could be a very long post so I would go grab your self a nice cup of tea and some biscuits to get you through)

Step 1: Choosing your puppy

Deciding where to get your puppy from can be hard. I would recommend getting one from a breeder who has been recommended to you from a friend or some one who has the same breed of dog as you and has experience with them. Make sure the breed that you choose is right for you and that you have maybe met someone who has one so you can get to know them and see what their characteristics are.
For us, we had seen people with miniature schnauzers  around where we live and we thought they were REALLY cute. My friend's mum had a contact to someone who is a recommended breeder in miniature schnauzers witch is the breed that Margot is. 

Step 2: Preparing for your puppy

Once you have chosen your puppy and you know when and where you are picking it up from, you need to make sure that you have pretty much every thing you will need for when he or she arrives. They are, 

 A Bed 

Food and water bowls
I would recommend that you get a separate bowel for water and food because it just makes it easier to refill each one without spilling all the water when trying to feed them breakfast. 

 A lead
I would recommend that you get one of these extending leads so that you can take your dog on a walk and let them off a bit for a run around and it can teach your dog to walk better and not to pull as well.


Toys are really important when you have a puppy because they are constantly needing to be stimulated or they just get board and in Margot's case, chew up all the furniture. Toys can also be really good exercise for your dog 

Those are most of the things you will need to start with but as you dog gets older there could be more things that it needs

Step 3: Caring for you puppy 

Dogs of any age need lots of care, some more than others.
Cuddles: Cuddles are VERY important when it comes to caring for your dog. Giving your dog a big old cuddle will make them feel loved and it will make you feel good too. If he or she is a bit reluctant to start with just be gentle and slow with them and they will soon come round to the idea, they are probably just nervous
Sleep: Sleep is just as important to baby dogs as it is to baby humans. If you puppy is sleeping then LEAVE THEM TO SLEEP!!! I know how tempting it is to cuddle them while they are sleeping because they are so cute but they really need their sleep to grow up and if they get grumpy then they are NOT fun to be around
Feeding: To start with we fed Margot 3 meals a day but as she got older we narrowed it down to just breakfast and dinner and that seems to be fine as we tend to give her a few treats through out the day. You also need to make sure that you are feeding them the right food fro them so ask the breeder for information or if they have any food you can buy.
Exercise: Weather its walking, throwing a ball or going on a hike, exercise is one the most important things to get your dog to do. Depending on the breed, your dog should get some kind of exercise every day so they don't become over weight. Some dogs will need a lots more exercise than others. As well as Margot, my family have a black lab called Hardy. He gets walked every day because that is how much exercise he need where as Margot doesn't need a walk every day because she is quite small, so just running around in our garden is enough but she does have a couple of walks a week too

I think that is most of the things that you need to know when getting a puppy!!

Please let me know if I have forgotten anything and also let me know if this was helpful to you at all

see ya soon Xx

An Intro To Me

Hi guys!

 So, this morning I decided that I wanted to make a blog. I was struggling to decide what to theme it around so I thought about what kind of thing I like to read. DIYs, beauty, baking, fashion. I couldn't make my mind up. So, I came to the decision that I would just do a blog about............(drum roll)...... ALL OF THEM! ( Queue  children cheering!!!!) So each post will have a theme, either beauty, DIYs, fashion/beauty or baking.I think this should work because if you are into 1 of those but none of the others, thats fine because you can just selectively read posts that suit what you like.If you guys want me to do a post on something specific like a band or TV show or maybe a book.I really hope you enjoy what is hopefully to come and I will see you in my next post!!!!!!See ya soon Xx
