Cookie Recipe// Christmas


So I have found a super easy recipe for cookies. Now they are not very Christmassy but they can be made christmas through decoration and adding different spices. 



1 Cup of Sugar ( I use caster) 
1 Egg 
1 Cup of Peanut Butter ---- Or any thick flavouring, I love adding Chocolate Spread 

1) Preheat the oven at gas mark 5 and grease proof the tray

2) Add sugar and egg

3) Add flavour ( For me peanut butter) 

4) Stir and mix well until combined

5) Once finished, make mixture into small balls and place on tray. 

6) Cook for roughly 9 minutes ( my oven is quite powerful) or until cooked. 
TOP TIP- They may look uncooked however, they do cook once out of the oven. 

There you are! The simplest cookie recipe which takes all of 5 minutes to prepare. 

Let me know if you make them and what they turned out like

Secret Santa Ideas// Christmas


Oh the joys of secret santa! Its the one thing that I hate most of christmas period and no matter how hard I try not to get involved in them, I some how manage to get involved.

I have 2 this year and they both have different budgets. This gave me an idea to help other people out who are looking for ideas!

1) Little beauty Items// I have got one of my secret santa's a Ted Baker Lip Balm which was £5! A luxury item for quite cheap!
2) Smellies// Body spray or perfumes- all great gifts and what girls especially always have in their handbags. H&M and Superdrug have a great selection!
3) Keep sakes// Tiger have got lots of cute items for next to nothing prices- I have got two of my friends who are in my photography class a cute camera photo album
4) Writing Sets// I have got a teacher who one of my secret santa's and she always has a notebook with her! TOP TIP// Always look out and listen for ideas if you are stuck!

5) Personal// This is one of my presents from my mum and it was FREE! A perfect idea!

So there are some of my ideas for your secret santa dilemmas! I hope that helps and comment below any more ideas to help other people out :)

Wrapping Ideas\\ Christmas


 As you may have noticed, Christmas is fast approaching! I started very early gathering and organising all the presents I needed to get and last week I finally finished.

So I thought what better time than to write my first christmas post! I have got a theme this year for how I am going to wrap and present my presents. I wanted to do something special for my friends as this is the last year that we will be together properly before its university time!


Brown wrapping paper// I got mine for a £1 for Wilko ( a supermarket-like store) in the parcel and post section
Labels// Wilko again! You get get these pretty much every where
Ribbon// Tiger as some great christmas wrapping ideas and items! Mine is white snowflakes and I have fallen in love with it!!
Christmas decorations// Tiger again! 2 for a £1!

and of course your chosen present!

Its quite easy- wrap your present and wound the ribbon around making sure that you add your label and decorations!

I love this idea and its an extra little present which they can keep forever! Let me know what you are planning on getting people for christmas
