FASHION: Party Outfit Ideas + VIDEO

If you see this after the 31st then Happy New Year, I have been prepping for this post for a while now. Since Christmas just passes I finally got round to shooting the outfits you can see in the video.
New Years Eve I will be working which means the day after I will be either sleeping the entire time or lounging like a wet sack on the sofa.
So this is me saying THANK YOU, for all those who came across this site, who left lovely comments and those who stop by on a regular basis. I love you, blogging and sharing all the things we love is so much fun and hopefully my time management will improve in order to post more frequent.

CHRISTMAS RECIPE: Vanillekipferl - Vanilla Crescents

I am one of those people that tend to not eat a lot of sweets and chocolates throughout the year just because I don't have much of a sweet tooth. Except on Christmas, that is where my cravings
that have been sleeping the last 11 months awake and need sugar.
This is one of the easiest, quickest and yummiest recipe I could think of to share with you.

The ingredients are listed below.

As you can see you don't need much. Little side note if you don't have Vanilla sugar, I recommend using 2 real vanillas and scrape the insides into the bowl. Also instead of real butter I used margarine which is especially for baking.

Lets get to business. 

STEP 1. Add 300g flour, 70g sugar, 1 pack of vanilla sugar ( alternatively real vanilla), 220g Butter and 100g almonds into a bowl.

STEP 2. Before adding the milk, use a flat objec to cut through the butter and start mixing the ingredients. You can then continue to mix everything until the mixture looks similar to breadcrumbs.

STEP 3. Add milk and mix again. I did everything by hand because I find it easier.

STEP 4. Preheat oven to 180-200 degrees Celsius. 

STEP 5. Take small portions and form into a banana shape. Size is up to you, these came out a bit thicker my next batch I made smaller and thinner because my mother likes them more crunchy.

STEP 6. Put into the oven for about 15 minutes. They will be light brown, leave in longer if you prefer them more crunchy.

STEP 7. As soon as they come out of the oven, sprinkle over some Vanilla Sugar and confectioners Sugar. Leave to cool and serve. I honestly prefer them when they are a couple of days old.

I hope you enjoyed this post and give it a try :)

CHRISTMAS DIY: Affordable Decoration/Gift Idea

Merry Christmas Season, lights are up, tree is decorated the credit card is on overuse and your belly is getting stuffed with all the goodies you have been avoiding eye contact with the entire year.

Whilst listening to my spotify Christmas mash up I got inspired for little DIY projects. This one in fact I did a while ago but never got my bum down to edit and upload the photos.

If you are looking for a simple yet cute way to decorate your room jolly or need an idea for a gift check out this quick DIY.

- Blank Canvas ( or blank card, you can also apply the instructions to make christmas cards)
- Paint (I only used a deep green and black)
- Brushes (I also used one flat, think brush to draw the strings)
- Glue (preferbly one that dries transparent)
- Glittler
- Some different sized round shaped items to trace the xmas balls

That was easy right? Let me know if you tried this DIY.

*REVIEW: BornPrettyStore.Com Women's Watch

hope you all are starting to get into the Christmas mood already, I haven't yet but as soon as my eyes will catch the beautiful lights at the Christmas market tomorrow I sure will be super hyped for the holidays. Little disclaimer, it took me about 2 hours to get these pictures uploaded due to my recent poor internet connection which is one reason for my lack of posts these weeks. Nonetheless, I come to you with a FABULOUS review attached with a 10% off COUPON CODE which you will find near the end of this post but first watch me casually model a watch. *ding*

I went over to BornPrettyStore.Com  and chose this women's wrist watch because it just immediately spoke to me, the black wrist band - hello? do you know me, I dig that - and the golden hardware are just right up my alley. Thank you very much.
If you are looking for Christmas gift ideas I recommend you check out the Bornprettystore and browse their variety of watches, apparel and jewelry. The price range is definitely affordable to the masses and the choices are close to infinite if you ask me.
Hold on, lets revisit my new watch again for a minute. Since, it is pretty new I haven't had the chance to wear it out a lot yet but the sleek design enables me to dress it either up or down. My only advice would be to maybe not wear it on a daily basis, as the bands seem a little easy to break. The band wearing out or breaking can happen to just about any watch and that is why these bands are also available on their on in every store that sells watches.

Other than that I recommend you check out the site and if you found something of your interest enter ANGELINAFC10 when you check out and save 10%
