Homemade mince pies!














If someone was to ask me my favourite thing about Christmas I think I would probably say it's mince pies, although there would be a long list to follow (Christmas trees, chocolate, presents, the lights, more chocolate...) 
Anywayyyy... I decided I would bake some mince pies and see if they taste as good as the Waitrose ones. And I have to say, I think I now prefer them homemade, especially when you can have them freshly baked and warm! I highly recommend anyone that is a lover of mince pies, like myself, to have a go at baking these as they are super easy and so festive.... they are Christmas in a cake (or a pie) . I think I'm just obsessed with anything to do with Christmas, it makes me feel ridiculously happy!

I hope everyone is feeling as festive as me! 
Happy Christmas

The Perfect Winter Coat






Coat- zara
High neck Top- Asos
Jeans- Topshop
Boots- Topshop


This blog title is a big statement to make, especially with such an array of coats to choose from this season, in so many colours and styles! But for me I cannot fault this coat, firstly it is super warm and cosy. As I got it in a large, because I prefer it oversized, it is particularly warm! Secondly the quality of it is amazing and at the considerable small price of £40 I pleasantly surprised. I also like the classic aesthetic, which I'm hoping means I'll have it for a good few years! 
How is everyone's December going? I am personally loving the festivities and I'm already starting to indulge... Watch out for a home made mince pies post. But I can't enjoy it all just yet as I still need to get a few more presents for family and friends and I am just finding it so hard this year. 
Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend

P.S I forgot to mention I had my haircut- trying and failing to channel my inner Alexa Chung? (I wish)

Peanut butter brownies!

Of course watching my favourite Youtuber, Zoella, while I impatiently wait for it to bake

As it has been forever since I last blogged and I couldn't be bothered to make myself look nice today and take some outfit photos I decided I'd share on my blog one of my favourite things- baking. I bake almost every week when I have the time. Today I baked Peanut butter brownies- as you can probably tell. They were really simple to make as it's practically an all in one recipe, and they taste delicious! For the full recipe click here
Thanks for viewing and let's hope I'll be doing more regular posts!
