My Sisters Birthday Cake!

Hello There!

So this morning I thought I'd share with you the recipe to my chocolate cake! This is my favourite recipe and I always seem to make it, whether it's muffins or for a friends birthday or for a family gathering! I've had positive feedback on this, so I hope it works for you too! If only you could smell the food through the screen, that would top it off! (The decoration, Malteasers and Chocolate Fingers were my sisters request and she turned 15, hence the 15 on the cake)


 
You'll Need:

225g Plain Flour
250g Caster Sugar
1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
100g Butter
250ml Milk
1 tbsp Vinegar
2 Eggs
50g Cocoa Powder



  1. Set the oven to 180degrees. Place some greaseproof paper into two 20cm round tins. 
  2. Put the Butter and Sugar into the mixing bowl and beat until fluffy. Beat the Eggs into the mixture one at a time.
  3. In a jug, stir the Vinegar into the Milk, then add half to the mixture.
  4. Sift in half the Flour, Cocoa Powder and Soda and then fold it in.
  5. Add the rest of the Milk, Flour, Cocoa Powder and Soda into the mixture, mix until smooth. 
  6. Equally pour the mixture into the two tins and bake for 1 hour. (Muffins are about half the time)
  7. Take out the cake when you have placed a knife through the middle and it has come out clean. 
  8. To make the Butter Icing for the middle, mix 2 tbsp's of Icing Sugar with a tbsp of Butter. Add either more Icing Sugar or Water to create a stiff consistency. Spread evenly between the layers.

Eye Make-Up!

Hey Tuesday Go-ers?!!

Haha, can I firstly say, I'm so sorry I haven't posted anything in such a long time! I've just been mega busy with my coursework due, exams next week and I had my driving test last week. Which.... didn't really go to plan cos I failed! The annoying part is, that it was eyesight that let me down not even my driving! (I didn't see a sign!) Ughh, oh-well, I guess we learn from our mistakes and I'll know what to expect for next time!

So I thought I'd do a quick, simple post just so I had something up for you guys! In these pictures you can't really see the glitter eyeshadow so just imagine!:) Now I don't often wear a huge amount of make-up full stop, but when I do, I mostly direct it on my eyes. Due to my eyes being soooo big, I can't really show off a lot of eyeliner or eyeshadow so most days I keep it quite simple and go for mascara and a light covering of eyeshadow.

All make-up is from Superdrug...

~ Eyeshadow - MUA Undress Me Too Palette
~ Eyeliner - Collection Fast Stroke

Tribal Nail Art!

Hey Chums!

So how are we all? Today I thought I'd take the time to make my nails a little more exciting that just painted. I don't normally do nail art because I do the left hand exactly how I want, and cos I'm right handed, doing my right looks a mess! But oh-well, thought I'd give it a go!

My Tea Tree Range.

Hey Beautiful People!

Today I thought I'd share with you my Tea Tree Range from Superdrug!
*Cleanser & Toner - £3.29     *BB Cream - £3.29     *Exfoliating Cream Wash  - £3.29            *Foaming Facial Wash - £3.29     *Essential Oil 100% - £3.29

*Essential Oil 100% (Left) - This is an oil that helps imperfection and blemish control. I haven't used it in a while, but a few months ago when I was pretty bad with the spots, I purchased this hoping it would reduce them. For a while it did help my face, but soon after it started to irritate my skin. It may sting when it has made contact with the skin, but before you know it, you forget about it. For such a small bottle, I would say it's a bit pricey. However it does work well, and helped reduce my blemishes! 
*BB Cream SPF 15 Light (Middle) - This is a great product for when you don't want to apply as much make-up and you just want to quickly apply something to hide your blemishes. This hydrates your skin, giving it a healthy glow! I went for a light shade as I have quite fair skin. As it's quite a thin liquid, it gives an even coverage over your skin, however if you have red areas within the face I would recommend adding loose powder. 
*Exfoliating Cream Wash (Right) - Straight away, the size of the bottle is perfect if you were to use it daily as you use quite a bit of it. I would say the best time of day to use this product is the morning, due to it be quite freshening! The broken seashells within the product definitely makes you feel like the product is doing your skin good. Once you've washed away the cream with clean, cold water it leaves your skin feeling smooth. However if you tend to have dry skin after your face has contacted water, I would recommend applying moisturiser straight after. 

*Cleanser & Toner (Left) - This is a fab product for freshening your face up before you go to bed and when you wake up. I wouldn't substitute it for a make-up remover but I would still use it after so it can clean you pores out. I would recommend using a cotton pad when applying this to your face due to it being soft yet you can still get to the smaller parts of your face that may have been missed from taking off your make-up. 
*Foaming Facial Wash (Right) - I always use this product in the shower without a doubt, as it's easier to wash off. The foamy textile is a nice feel when applying to the face and when washed off it leaves your skin feeling clean and healthy. The best bit of the product is the price, and even though it's the same price as the others, you get your moneys worth better in this product. This is due to when you use it, you hardly need anything but it still covers your whole face.

A Quick Catch Up!

Good Afternoon to you all!

So even though I've already done a post for today, I want to get another one done as I won't have time to do many others! Why, maybe the reason you ask! Well it's two weeks from the start of my exams, so the rush of coursework is full on! I've had a relaxing Holiday (even though it seems to be all over in a flash!), it was great to catch up and spend quality time with the family as well as me having time to write posts for you guys! 

Now on the subject of this blog, I'd just like to say a thank you to you guys. Now I know I'm not popular on here or whatever but without you're positive comments I probably would have given up or not written as much as I have! As I've mentioned before, I hate writing, was never a lover of English as a subject at GCSE but me knowing that there are people reading this blog makes me happy! It keeps me motivated to keep writing posts, some days I just want to write a post but I have no idea what, just because I want to share things with you! I hope to keep this blog going for a long time, and I hope you keeping reading! I'm still learning new things about blogging everyday, so I'm open to any advice!

So if you've got any post ideas that you want me to write about whether its a haul, a review, advice or even just a chat of what I've done in that week! I read every comment, and I try my best to reply to each one! Thanks again for reading my blog!
