VEGAN VANILLA CHRISTMAS BISCUITS

Iced vanilla biscuits are one of my favourite things to bake, the whole process is fun for me, from making the dough to decorating them. They are the perfect thing to snack on especially at this time of the year when you’re craving a sweet treat. I have a Christmas folder on Pinterest and it is mainly filled with Christmas biscuit photos, so I tried to make as many different biscuit designs as possible when making these. Keep reading to find out how to make these super easy festive biscuits. Ingredients for biscuits 100g dairy free butter 100g caster sugar…

CHRISTMAS PYJAMA WISH LIST

Pyjamas are probably my favourite clothing items, if I could live in PJ’s I would. I love being comfortable and warm so winter PJ’s are my favourite. Christmas is my favourite time of the year so mixing the two together is the perfect combination for me! I love to buy a couple of new sets of PJ’s every year and get rid of my old tatty ones. I have combined a collection of my favourites for sale this year in this post to give you all some inspiration if you’re looking for some new festive PJ’s. 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 I have recently…

VEGAN CANDY CANE PEPPERMINT CUPCAKES

Peppermint is one of the most classic festive wintery flavours in my opinion so I decided to get in the festive spirit and make some peppermint flavoured cupcakes. I have been dying to use my edible glitter that I bought a while ago so I went all out with these cupcakes and sprayed it everywhere. I’m not usually a fan of silver glitter but I think it compliments the cool colours of these cakes really nicely and looks beautiful in real life. Peppermint can be quite an overwhelming taste so if you’re not too keen on it you can mix…

VEGAN HOT CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES

I’m always trying to come up with different flavours for cupcakes unlike the usual vanilla or chocolate. Hot chocolate is my favourite drink for this time of year, so I decided to create some hot chocolate flavoured cupcakes. I used Cadburys hot chocolate powder instead of cocoa powder which gives the cake a much softer flavour and literally tastes exactly like hot chocolate. I used butter icing on the top to look like whipped cream, vegan marshmallows, chocolate sauce and hot chocolate powder sprinkled on top to make it look as authentic as possible. Ingredients for cupcakes 180g self-raising flour…

TANYA BURR COSMETICS – SELFIE STORY

I have watched Tanya Burr on YouTube for years, she was one of the first YouTubers that I ever watched and that I still enjoy watching to this day. I trust her opinion and because of this I knew I would love her makeup line. To be truthful I haven’t tried many of her products, I’m not really sure why, maybe because I don’t often shop in Superdrug but something about her new Selfie Story collection really drew me in. Maybe its the beautiful sleek gold packaging or that she has brought out two of my top makeup products, could…

WHAT TO DO ON HALLOWEEN IF YOU’VE GOT NO PLANS

Even when I was younger it was rare if I did anything for Halloween, my dad has worked away for the majority of my life so he often wasn’t home for Halloween. My mum didn’t like taking my brother and I out on our own as she didn’t like the dark nights so I hardly ever went trick or treating. Because of this we’d always celebrate Halloween in the house. I very rarely go out drinking so I don’t even go out on Halloween now. My best friend and I have always wanted to but Halloween has never landed on…

MINI GLOSSIER HAUL

If you’re an active member of the blogging and youtube beauty community you will probably have heard that the brand Glossier has been released in the UK. I first heard about this brand through Anna, I think about a year ago and I have been wanting to try it ever since. I only bought two products (technically four as one is a set) as I restrained myself so much and only bought things that I don’t have similar already or that I felt like I needed skin care wise. In this post I share with you my thoughts on the…

VEGAN PUMPKIN COOKIE DOUGH BITES

Last year I made some pumpkin patch cupcakes and created little fondant pumpkins to decorate them with (blog post here). I have been dying to make fondant pumpkins again ever since. I was making cookie dough bites and I thought that they’d be the prefect size and shape for creating pumpkins! I found a cookie dough recipe online and adapted it so that it was vegan and also to my taste preferences. I made plain chocolate chip cookie dough but you could add spices like cinnamon, nutmeg or if you can get your hands on pumpkin spice add that to…

NEW AUTUMN ROOM DECO

In this post I’m going to show you just how I’ve done that this autumn. If you would like to see how I decorated my bedroom for autumn last year you can read the post here.
