I had this crazy idea last night that today I should have a smoothie day. I don’t normally categorize my days but this was going to be an exception.
To be honest it was not really a smoothie day as only got round to making one smoothie. But hey! It is a very yummy single smoothie. !!

Here is the list of important ingredents:

–          Handful of Boysenberries

–          Handful of Raspberries

–          ½ cup Greek Yoghurt

–          ½ cup Organic Milk (You can use whatever  milk you like)

–          Splash of Vanilla Essence

–          A very healthy sprinkling of Milo Powder

And you guessed it. Blend it like crazy and pour into a tall glass. I like to finish it off with a drizzle of berry sauce and a sprinkling of Milo on the top.

Cheers

It’s a rather bland day outside and the collection of movies is rather boring, so me and my friend Nadja decided to make some chocolate Cookies.

 After getting the shock of the massive White Tail Spider crawling on the bench, give us a break it was massive. We proceeded on making these chocolate Chip Cookies.

Here is the list of ingredients and the all important recipe.

2 cups (250g) self-raising flour
170g butter, melted
1 ½ cup (110g) white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla essence
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 cups dark chocolate chips

Preparation method
Prep: 10 minutes | Cook: 15 minutes | Extra time: 15 minutes but wont b needed unless u get attacked !
1.Preheat the oven to 165 degrees celcius. Line two cookie trays with baking paper
2.Sift the flour, set aside.
3.In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended.
4.Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Drop big, round tablespoons of the dough onto the prepared cookie trays, leaving plenty of room for spreading.
5.Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Omg the cookie dough tastes so good. Very tempting to just eat this now. Who says it has to be cooked But is best to wait as result is even better. ☺

Thats mine on the right and Nadjas on the Left.

As we were about to put them in the oven Nadja accidentally decided to drop on the floor. we are now 2 biscuits less.
We have to cook each tray separately, don’t know if there will be any dough left to cook. ☺
Slowly picking away at the uncooked yummy goodness.

Unlike my other cooking attempt these turned out a great success. Well that depends on how you look at it. They do not at all look or taste the pure beauty of Subway cookies, but they sure do taste amazing. So in our eyes success !!!!
Think I should mention that we did not exactly follow the recipe properly. It says to add brown sugar as well as white sugar. But to the unfortunate event we don’t have any brown sugar. And a shop is to far away. So completely forgot about the brown sugar and put in an extra half a cup of white sugar. A complete uneducated and very very lucky guess.

 Away we went dunking them in a cup of milk. Omg…. absolutely divine.

So have a go, play round with the recipe. What is the worst that can happen?

Every girl I am sure wanted once to be a princess. The palace, prince charming and well… the dress. That huge eye-catching glimmering in the light dress. The one that makes you the prettiest in the room.The belle of the ball. For me, this dress would come very close.

This is an evening dress designed in 1952-53 by the one and only Christian Dior!! Wow oh wow. If that does not say princess, I would no idea what does.


But not everyone is the same, so if that does not tickle your fancy. What about this one. Designed by Edward Molyneux for his fall/winter collection of 1939-40.

Stunning !!!!
I am in love. But of course these dress may be a little hard to come across as they are in the exhibits in the Metropolitan Museum but as my mother always says… Dreams are free. ♥

Happy Dreaming

This is following the coconut ice disaster of before.
It is eatable !!!!
At this very moment it is still setting in the fridge. (are you meant to do that) and I can happily say that it was not the full disaster than I thought it would be. So yeah it may not have that normal coconut ice to layer thing and half of it is still stuck to the bottom of the saucepan but who cares. You can eat it with a spoon !!!

So either I am a complete idiot or I am on to something new and fun to eat.

Today I thought that it would be fun to jump into the kitchen and do some baking. Now I am happy to admit that it is not my forte, but i thought… coconut ice – that cant be hard. Wow could I have been more mistaken.

This is the result…
Think that I may need some help

So if any body has a full proof recipe for Coconut Ice, it would be very welcome. I am willing to try out all your recipes and blog about all my results.

So with Christmas over and the New Year has rolled in. I believe that it is time to hit the beach.
So …
Togs- check
Nails painted- check
Working on the tan- check
The last thing left on the list is Beach Hair. I am the type of person who likes to look natural. But… well lets say my hair is not always on the best side of natural. But after much trial of error I have found something that gives you the best natural beach looking hair. This home made Beach Hair spray is my most have for this summer. It takes only a few seconds to make.

You don’t always have to follow it to the letter and there is no right or wrong way to do it. So think of these as guidelines.
So here is what you need to make it on your own.

16 fl oz. of plain old tap water.
Sea salt, you only need a few pinches. Also make sure you use sea salt, and not the table salt you put on your food.
Conditioner, a few squirts depending on the dryness of your hair.
A small dab or low hold hair gel.
You can also ad some essential oils if you have dry hair.
Or if you hair is oily hair adding tea tree oil can help.

You will want to add this into a clean spray bottle and give it a mix.
Once all mixed spray evenly through out your hair. I tend to scrunch my hair up with a towel and then let it dry on its own.
So give it a go and have fun with it.

But if homemade is not your thing there are many sprays you can get from the many sprys you can pick up from a store.

HAVE FUN !!
