IMG_9212 IMG_9214IMG_9213IMG_9216Hey lovelies! I made a batch of these fab chocolate dipped cereal bars today…(Okay, they may not look like cereal bars, but I wasn’t too sure what to call them!) They’re also a bit like rocky road…But a lot more basic!

  • Firstly tip your cereal and marshmallows into a microwavable bowl (it can be any cereal that you like and however much you want, I chose Coco Pops!) Make sure you then microwave it for about 30 seconds (or less or more, depending on what you thinks best!)
  • It will then come out in a gooey mess, and make sure to mix the marshmallow goo all over the cereal. Get a board or plate and squidge them both together to form a long, bar-type of shape!
  • Get whatever type of chocolate you want to use; I chose dark chocolate, and then melt this in a bowl over a pan of boiling hot water on the hob.
  • Make sure your chocolate’s fully melted and then drizzle or dip your bars into the chocolate and you’re done!

Such an easy, quick yummy snack!

66Hey lovelies! This is just a round up of what I’ve been up to this last week before I go back to school…(PLEASE NO, PLEASE NO.)

1. Had a fabbity-fab day out in London with my beautiful cousin, Beth. We strolled around Camden for a bit, snapping away like little photographers (photo-heavy post coming soon!) We took to some stalls and bought cute little friendship bracelets, and invested in a healthy kale juice to keep us energized on the go! We also went to one of the cheap little shops and bought loads of cute rings! After we’d finished with Camden, we caught the tube to Oxford street and rummaged around in H&M and Primark for cute clothes! I have to say…Oxford Street’s Primark is horrendous. It’s massive and crowded…I hated it, ugh. We then went off to Ed’s Diner for fries, burgers, onion rings and sweet potato fries! Don’t forget the little photo-booth machine we came across…

2. Oh my, The Inbetweeners 2 is hilarious! I recommend it for a girly day out with friends for a good ol’ laugh! I personally think it’s a lot funnier than the first film, and me, Amber and Katie couldn’t help cracking up every five minutes!

3. I did the dreaded school shop the other day, and after about two shops looking for shoes, I’d given up and started moaning that I wanted to go home! I love clothes and all that material stuff, but I haaate shopping…I’d much rather shop online, and it’s even worse considering it’s shopping for school clothes! I found some awesome black patent brogues though, which I said I’d wear for school…Even though they’re gorgeous and are most certainly going to be worn out and about everywhere I go! I also got my hideous school skirt, but ended up getting a lovely treat from Costa at the end (a Raspberry and White Chocolate Creamy Cooler and a lovely piece of coffee and hazelnut cake!)

4. I had a lovely catch-up with my bestie, Jenny, since she’s just gotten back from the US! I’m a lucky girly, I got given a few awesome prezzies, which will be up in a haul soon! We also took part in the Ice Bucket Challenge (yes, there were screams), and ended up at a pet store looking at adorable rabbits, hamsters and guinea pigs! (Zoe, I blame you for this!)

5. It was my brother’s birthday recently, so I ended up baking his birthday cake and all the little cupcakes…It took me FIVE HOURS, WHAT. But they came out perrrfectly, so it was well worth it!

6. I went to a friend’s party with Tasha, Emillie and Kim, and it was such fun! (Ooh, another Miranda reference, oops!)

7. My family tend to throw little gatherings and get-togethers from time-to-time, so this annual event took place the other day, and we all went down to the beach to search for crabs, fly kites and toast marshmallows! It was lovely catching up with all my family too!

How’s your week been?

IMG_9208 IMG_9209Hey lovelies! This is such a cute little juice bottle from Jamie at home, don’t you think?! I thought I’d spruce it up a bit, and make a wonderful little concoction, which is so easy to make! It’s incredibly healthy for you, so I thought I’d share my little recipe!

  • Firstly, I cut lemon in half and squeeze the juice into the bottle. I then just slice up another lemon and add the slices into the bottle to add even more flavour, as well as making it look rather pretty!
  • I then sliced up about a third of a large cucumber and added the slices into the mix!
  • Lastly I just added a handful of strawberries with their tops cut off, and filled up the bottle full of water!
  • Leave to set for about 10 minutes and add ice!

It’s such a refreshing drink, and is a brilliant alternative to regular, sugary juices!

49 50 53 54 57 58 51 52 55 56Hey lovelies! So just a quick round-up from this last week, as I’m going on holiday next week! (YIPPETY-YAY, HERE I COME!!!)

1. Had the perfect little date night with my chummy, Kim; Pizza and a movie is definitely the key to my heart. (Just saying, if you wanted to know…) We started off the date by popping into Pizza Express, and being picky little gluten-free-ers, we got two small little pizzas each, and yes I think people judged us for having more than one pizza…We then went to the local cinema and watched Boyhood; We were rather sneaky and couldn’t find our right seats, so we just sat anywhere and were shamed in front of everyone when we were asked to move, as we were in the wrong seats! (SO EMBARRASSING, ALWAYS CHECK WHERE YOU SIT.) But ahhh! The film was amazing, I can’t believe they filmed it for about 13 years…We literally saw all the actors grow up! It was such a touching story, apart from the fact that the ending was rather sudden (Kim literally went on a rant about how annoying the ending was, hahaha!) But the only trouble with cinemas is how annoying the women at the front who can’t stop laughing are, the countless heads in front of you blocking the screen, the kid who can’t stop sounding like an animal when he eats popcorn…Wow I sound like such a grump! But I’m sorry…Doesn’t everyone feel the same when that happens?!

2. Me and my friends, (Jackie, Jenny, Kit and Fran) decided to head to some random fields and start playing Twister out in the open…Yes, we got some odd looks from several dog walkers and couples, but it was such fun! (Miranda, oh yes.) We then randomly started rolling down hills and climbing up trees (Don’t ask.) And after a while we all went to the nearby Maccy Ds and bumped into some people from school…(A good thing, as well as a bad thing!!!) But McDonalds was rather eventful, and in the end we found ourselves yet again in another field, playing silly, childish games…

3. I went shopping the other day and bought some laaavely stuff from New Look, Topshop and H&M! The mother and I decided on a little girls day out, and found ourselves buying tops, shorts, leggings, jeans and all that great stuff. (Haul coming soon if you want one!)

4. My friend, Daya came round one afternoon and we spent the whole time munching on spaghetti and going through endless music pieces so that we’re ready to go busking this Summer to earn a bit of cash! (I’m singing and playing the guitar, and she’s playing the violin; Check my youtube channel out here.)

5. Yesterday was lovely…Catching up with all the family, playing silly games, eating waaay too much food, and having many a selfie taken…Even my uncle and granddad ended up taking selfies together…(MY FAMILY ARE COOL, OKAY?!)

How’s your week been?
