One Direction

Yes I am a 12 year old girl and yes I love One Direction. Here are a couple of snaps of when I went to see them in Newcastle. I had the best time and danced all night! Such innocent fun.

Happy Easter everyone! I got up so early this morning (6.30am!) because I have a project to finish for uni. My early start meant I had a bit of time to spare so before cracking on I did a bit of baking - treats to get me through the day! I made Rosie's Banana Nutella Swirl Muffins. They are SO good I accidentally ate 3 before 10am. Choc for breakfast is acceptable on Easter Sunday anyway.

Hope you all enjoy your day and eat chocolate to your little hearts' content!

Klosters Ski Trip

Here are a few pics from my recent skiing holiday to Klosters, Switzerland. One of my friends lives there so luckily we had free accommodation in a gorgeous family home - having a fire everyday made relaxing after skiing SO much cosier. Absolutely detoxing now I'm home, think I managed two hot chocolates a day on the slopes!

Now back to the dissertation...

Mothers Day

Being the perfect daughter that I am (honest) I came home for the weekend to see my mom for Mothers Day! Being a penniless student I couldn't afford much of a present so I decided to bake her a cake instead. I am not a master baker by ANY means (no matter how hard I try I cannot get cookies right - they always end up melted in to each other in a bubbly mess, what am I doing wrong?) but I have to say this was a pretty good effort.

Presenting....White Chocolate and Raspberry Cheesecake!

This was a BBC Good Food recipe and it honestly couldn't have been easier. I had a slice for pudding earlier and have already been back to the fridge to pick at the sides (sacrilege!)

How have you all spent the weekend?

Take me away...

It's March and the weather is still HORRIBLE.
I am fantasising about exotic places and a summer wardrobe...
