White Chocolate and Raspberry Brownies

What You will need:
  • 250g White Cooking Chocolate 
  • 75g Butter
  • 125g Caster Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 150g Plain Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 125g Raspberries 
 What to do: 
  1. Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees. Boil kettle and place water into sauce pan. Use 175g of white chocolate, put in bowl and place over saucepan to let the chocolate melt. 
  2. Whisk together the butter and sugar until it has a fluffy look about it. Add in eggs and vanilla extract and whisk together, then stir in the melted hot chocolate.  
  3. Fold in the flour and salt and when this is completed cut up the remaining pieces of chocolate and add in white the raspberries. Mix together and your mixture is complete. 
  4. Grease some baking paper and put around a square cake tin. Move mixture from your mixing bowl to the tin and put in the oven for 30 -35 minutes. 
 One thing about brownies is that the inside should be a little bit more gooey than the outside. Mine ended up being a little to firm but you can check them by putting a knife through the middle and if it's clean they are ready.  
If you decide to make these let me know in the comments.  
Till next time

The Best Of The Golden Globes 2014

Yes ladies, it is back to that time of year where we anxiously await each award show to watch out for the best/worst dressed on the red carpet. This year the Golden Globes has kicked it all off with dresses that can only amaze.  

From designers such as Christian Dior. Versache, Gucci, Oscar De Le Renta rocking the runway and celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence, Margot Robbie, Taylor Swift getting to flaunt them. It really is no surprise that people stay up to the crack of dawn to watch. 

Overall I was very impressed with the designs on the runway. Jennifer Lawrence had quite a Disney look about her dress being compared to Ariels handmade outfit. Celebrities such like Margot Robbie and Amy Poehler worked the very simple classy looked but none the less looked flawless doing it. 

There were a few misses on the red carpet but for now we will only talk about the good. This is only the start of the award season and I for one cannot wait to see what the next one has in store. 

Till next time.

Urban Decay Shattered Face Case

Hey Guys, 

Considering I am a lover of beauty it was to be expected that I would be getting a few make-up bits for Christmas. One of the pieces I received was the Urban Decay Shattered Face Case. From the moment I opened it I knew I was going to love it. 

There is two parts to this case including 5 eye-shadows, 2 Blushers, a highlighter, a lip colour and an eye pencil. The colours in this palette are perfect for a soft look or a dramatic look and has everything you need in one handy little case. 

I am not the greatest blush fan as I already have reddish cheeks so a lighter blush would have been handy but other than that this is the perfect palette if you are in a rush while getting ready. It is also small which means it's perfect for packing in your bag when going out. 

Have you tried Urban Decays Shattered Face Case? If so what were your thoughts?
 Till next time.
