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)

Reasons I love Autumn :)

My Monthly Favourites 2

Hi guys! So it's been a while, but there's nothing I can do about it! I'm on summer holidays now, so I'll be posting more often. Also, I'm gonna start working on a schedule for the blog, cus at the moment it's a bit all over the place!

Anyway, I have to go to the shop with my mum to post something soon (Yes, this island is so small that there is only one shop, and it is also the post office xD)
So, here we go!

The start of my new story!!

Hi guys! It's been quite a while since my last post, I'm sorry, I have tests for the next few weeks and I have to revise a lot. There will be a blog post on how to be organised coming soon, with some tips and stationery essentials. 
Anyway, my mum told me it would be a good idea to start writing a book, and of course I didn't say no. She said if it was good enough, we could send it to a few publishers! I love writing stories, and if I'm not reading, or watching Disney Films, or on YouTube, you'll find me staring into space trying to think of a name for a city, in a kaleidoscope. This is the first part of my new story, which I haven't decided a name for yet. Let me know what you think in the comments, it means a lot to me when someone comments!
Here it is!

World Book Night!

Hi guys!

HAPPY WORLD BOOK NIGHT!

I'm not sure if I'm right, but I know WBD (World Book Day) was on the third of March. According to the WBD website , today is World Book Night. I think this event is more for people in their teens, so I decided to celebrate this one instead of WBD, which is more for younger people.

Anyways, I don't know what I'm meant to do for WBN, so I'm just gonna do a list of books that changed my reading life. (These books include books I read when I was much smaller than I am now) This doesn't contain any spoilers.

BOOKS THAT CHANGED MY LIFE (AND YOU MUST READ THEM)


Girl Online Series by Zoe Sugg This book is a book that inspired me to do two of my favourite things, blog and take pictures. I don't know who I'd be if I hadn't found the first book at my old Book Swappers club two years ago! AND it was written by my favourite YouTuber!
The Hunger Games Series by Suzanne Collins I know every teen loves this book, but you know, it's re…

Check out this website!

Hello!

First of all, I hope all had a great Easter, and if you don't celebrate it, I hope you had a great weekend.
I ate SOO much chocolate!

Anyway, I spend so much time on this website(you'll find it a in a minute), you wouldn't believe I even stop to eat!
On this website, you'll find:
Stories written by aspiring writersQuizzesI love that it is written by aspiring writers, because it goes to show that if you want to write a story and share it with other people, you can! I read one story on it, a while back, and it was amazing. It was called 'Differences'. It is a realistic story based on a girl called Destiny, and it is FULL of emotions. It is written by someone called 'avid novelist' and it is amazing. You HAVE to read it. (That is an order)

Anyway,you are probably itching to find out what the website is, this is it : Quotev
And if you thought that what was above is all that's there, there's one more thing. YOU CAN SHARE YOUR OWN STORIES ON IT!! I m…

Zoella outfits in cartoon!!

Hi guys! So I may not be a great drawer, but I managed to draw these pictures of Zoella, and I'm pretty proud of them. I really enjoyed drawing them, and picking which outfits for her to be wearing. I'm sorry that the pics don't look like her, but it's hard to transform someone into cartoon! And these were only five-minute sketches. I actually used her Instagram pictures for the outfits, so these are all outfits she owns and wears. Let me know if you'd like to see more of these little cartoons in the comments!

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…
