Happy Early Birthday Chummy |

Hello lovelies,
Today is the post that was suppose to go up Friday. Now I've had to do a switch around, chummy's getting her cake on Thursday, the baking post went up on Wednesday. You can see the dilemma. Anyway today is a very soppy birthday post for my chummy. If you want to read the cheesiness then stick around.

Chummy. A girl who I've known for not even two years yet throughout the years our paths have crossed and we didn't even know it. It was almost like our odd little friendship was meant to be. It feels like year has gone so quickly but its honestly been the best year of my life. Filled with new friends and many an adventure. Chummy has not only brought with her herself but he wonderful best friend L. Because of her I have him in my world now, he's another friend that is honestly the best. 


I'm not sure how we got this close but I'm glad we did, I just remember a chat about wands and then this little friendship grew from there. Chummy you honestly are such an important part of my life, you've shown me what a true friend actually does, you go above and beyond for me when I need you to. From the little dramas to the silent heartbreaks you've been there by my side with McDonald's or just a shoulder to weep on. Like that time I had that boy trouble, you knew how down I got about it all and raced me to work and left me a gift bag with tsum tsums and biscuits in. 

Granted we have had our little tiffs but I'm glad we work things out in the end, I don't really fancy a world without my chummy now. You know too much and are far too much fun to let go out. From our little shopping trips to late night adventures, chummy time is always the best. You've pushed me so far out of my comfort zone that I can't even see it anymore, it was scary but fun. I needed to come out of it and I suppose its something we can giggle about now. 

I find it quite cute how we actually met when we were little bit didn't have a clue, everyone else has such a fun history with you and its kind of nice to know we have the fact we met as kids. I know I can be a handful sometimes, my over active brain and my tendency to take things the wrong way, my over bearing personality can be a bit full on. I know that, so thanks for sticking by me and still being up for random adventures. 

Disney was the thing I loved most. Our little adventures have been fantastic but sharing Disneyland with a fellow addict was the most magical. We still even managed to have an adventure before even getting into Disney. Much like the tweedles, we'll split up but we'll split up together. I'm not quite sure what the point of this post is. If anything its just a soppy little post to remind you just how much you mean to me, you're basically just like a sister to me now. Except one I actually get on with and just adore. 

Chummy thanks for bringing me out of my bubble and showing me that the world can be so much fun, filled with adventure and friends who turn into family. I hope you have the most amazing 21st birthday, get treated like the princess you are and I cant wait to see you on Saturday for the most epic party. Filled with cakes, un-necessary sandwiches your mothers purchased, cats and plenty of alcohol. 

I love you lots chummy, 
Love chummy, tweedledum, soulmate and less commonly known to you as Chloe (Eww my name!)

Rainbow Meringue Kisses |

Hello lovelies,
A baking post today and I wanted to show you hot o amen these lovely little meringue kisses. These are so simple to make and they taste like little drops of heaven.

Ingredients |
150g egg white.
300g caster sugar.
Food colour gels.
Sprinkles.



Step 1 |
Use some kitchen roll covered in vinegar to clean a mixing bowl. This just makes sure its completely clean. Do this to your whisk as well. 

Step 2 |
Separate 150g of egg white. If any shell or yolk get in this then start again. 


Step 3 |
Use a mixer or a whisk to mix the egg white until it goes frothy. When its frothy put the mixer on full speed.



Step 4 |
When the egg whites are at thick peaks and glossy, keep it mixing and gradually add 300g of caster sugar. Keep this mixing and do this until the mix is smooth and glossy. 


Step 5 |
Pop your food colour gels on a plate and grab a paint brush. Now open your piping back and fold it over. Use your gels to paint lines of colour in the piping bag. Make sure the colours don't touch.



Step 6 |
Carefully fill the piping bag with the meringue and then pipe a bit out to get the colour coming through.



Step 7 |
Pipe onto greaseproof paper. Snip the end of the nozzle and then hold above paper, start piping and then push down and lift it off. Use a wet finger to put the points down. Now cover them in sprinkles and bake at 100c for 35-40 minutes. When you can lift them off the paper they are done. Leave to cool and then enjoy these little kisses.




If you want to save some then pop them in an air tight container.

Lush Halloween | 2016

Hello lovelies,
I ha vent done a lush post in ages and its that time of the year again when the glorious ranges are released. Of course I got all the Halloween range I could. Now its time for a little post about the products out this year and my thoughts on them. If you want to get any of these products then click on the pictures and it'll take you to the lush page.

Monsters ball | £4.25
This adorable purple ball of fizz is just perfect. The smell of this is sweet and just makes me feel so happy. This has got lime oil in and that definitely comes through, it just smells like the taste of sprite. Like this is the perfect scent for me. This also has cocoa butter in it so I'm hoping this makes my skin feel a little better. 


Sparkly pumpkin | £3.95
The sparkly pumpkin is back for another year. This bubble bar adds a little glitz to your bath and adds the softest bubbles. I love the scent of this one, a mix of grapefruit and lime. Just crumble some of this little pumpkin under running water and let it turn your bath into a citrus paradise. 


Goth Fairy | £5.50
This lovely little shimmer bar is the sweetest thing. Its full of sparkle and I can't wait to start using this. Now again this one has lime and grapefruit oil in it so is perfect for any circus lover. It has almond oil in which is good for your hair and skin. Now I can't wait to use this when I go out, a night out is fun but think how fun it will be if I'm all shimmery and sparkling.


Pumpkin | 
The pumpkin bath ballistic just screams Halloween. A rather simple but delicious scent. This one just smells like a chocolaty vanilla. This is just divine and I'm just a little over excited to pop this in my bath. Its also got a little hint of spice to it that really warms you up. This one is just autumn in a bath bomb.


Boo | £3.50
This spooky little bath melt is a must have for any lush lover. This one is full of cocoa butter and ginger oil. I just know that this one is going to work wonders on my skin. This has quite an earth scent which is a nice change, the other ones are great but very sweet. Its nice to have one that's a little less over powering.


Autumn leaf | £3.75
Autumn leaf, now I'm aware the picture is rather different to the others. I forgot to take the picture so rushed to do it, sorry guys. Now this one is just perfect to me. Its like man scent, like of lynx and it is just heavenly. Its basically sandalwood but its just a really nice musky tone and apparently I'm loving those lately.
