Candles and Comfort Food...

Hi guys!
First of all, I hope you like the new layout of my blog, I thought it needed a little bit of change. Let me know in the comments!

 So I have been using candles a LOT recently (Thanks for inspiring me, Zoe!), so I decided why not do a mini photoshoot with my favourite one, the DunnesHome Honeysuckle and Primrose fragranced candle (It's not lit here because it was SO windy outside, I brought it out and it blew out straight away). I love it because its smell is so comforting and sweet, it brings the room its in to life. Also, it has a copper lid, and I am LOVING copper right now. I'm sorry it's not like a fancy candle or anything, I'm on a budget guys! It is great value for €4. There are also some nice candles in stock in Primark too, so go and check them out. 

Doughnuts. Donuts. Whatever you call them, they are just amazing. My mum went to the Mainland today, and brought back a load of them, so why not use one for my blog? Doughnuts/donuts are all good, chocolatey or sugary or whatever the topping, they make my tummy rumble. Who else watches Zoe's vlogs and gets SOO jealous every time she goes to Dum Dum Doughnuts? I wish I could go!

In the background of these pics you'll see a red and black scarf shawly thing, that's basically my main item of clothing. Wear it as a blanket or scarf, it keeps you warm and stylish! AND it's only €10 in Primark! I wear it all the time. 

I found this image on the internet, and I think it's really cute:

Staying with the doughnut/donut (I'm sorry I really don't know which way is right) theme, here is the quote of the post:

You can't buy happiness but you can buy donuts. That's kind of the same thing.

Ginger and Chocolate Biscuits

Hi guys!
This is a really nice recipe, which I found in a cookbook in my kitchen (a really old one without a publisher written on it!) and I came across a recipe for 'biscuits'. They could have came up with something more original! Anyway, I tried that recipe but the biscuits were very plain and boring, so I decided to spice it up a little (I actually used spices) ;)

Here is the recipe I use (which is half from the book and half from me!)

Makes about 18 biscuits (it depends on the cookie cutter you use, really)

For the biscuits:
350g plain flour
3 teaspoons of ground ginger, or 4 teaspoons if you're a ginger lover!
1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
100g butter
175g soft light brown sugar
1 egg
4 tablespoons of golden syrup

For the chocolate icing (don't really know what to call it!):
165g milk/dark chocolate (whichever you prefer)
Handful of sprinkles

Heat your oven to 180C, 350F gas mark 4.
Storage:Keep in an airtight container and eat within six days.

1. Dip a paper towel in some m…

Autumn Touches for your Bedroom ;)

Hi guys... So, well this is awkward. I've been gone for WAY too long, I think the last time I posted was in June. That's 3 MONTHS!!! I'm sorry guys!! I had an extremely busy summer, and I honestly had more important things to be doing than sitting on my laptop, typing. But now that its officialy AUTUMN  (WHOOP WHOOP), and I'm back at school, I feel like it's time to start this up again.

I'm so excited to be back, and what better time to come back than in autumn? I mean, who doesn't love autumn. If you're new around here, I love listsing things. But most of you know that already. Here's a list of reasons why I personally love autumn. (Or fall, which is an awesome name for it hehe)
