Toffee Crisp Chocolate Chip Cookies

Saturday, 29 September 2012

Today I'm giving you all a break from Fashion Week posts and I've decided to treat you to a yummy cookie recipe. Lately school and study work have been really heavy going so my friend and I wanted to drown our emotions in chocolate and cookie goodness and here's what we came up with.

Here's what you need;
2 Packets of Betty Crocker's Chocolate Chip Cookie mix
7 Pack of snack size Toffee Crisps
1 Tub of Betty Crocker's Chocolate Frosting
Fudge Chunks

First of all you need to pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees Celcius and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper. 
Next you need to add tablespoons of water to a mixing bowl of the cookie mix while stirring at the same time.

 Keep adding water and stirring until it looks like this and is slightly sticky.
 Cut up the snack size toffee crisp bars into thirds about an inch thick and pad on a layer of the mix.

When you're finished the cookie balls should look like this.

Pop them into the oven for 17 minutes and let them cool for 5-10 minutes or else they'll be too gooey in the middle. When they're cooled you can frost them with chocolate deliciousness and fudge chunks and after that tuck in!

They are just perfect for a late night of movies and a cup o' tea.
Hope you enjoyed and will try them out.

The Last of London Fashion Week

Wednesday, 26 September 2012

Sorry for the sporadic posting I honestly never thought 6th Year would be so busy! I actually have to schedule in my shower times just so I can plan out my day in advance and don't even talk to me about keeping up with whatever is on tv. I can't imagine what it's going to be like when I start studying (that is if I can get motivated).

Also I have suddenly found myself way behind in the world of fashion seeing as Milan Fashion Week is over and I haven't looked at not so much as one collection yet. So keeping this in mind I'll fly through the last day of London Fashion Week, fly through Milan and do some proper work on Paris because that's where the good stuff is.

First up is the classy collection from Roksanda Ilincic. I don't know about you but I was definitely feeling a slight gravitation towards old time Paris and Yves Saint Laurent in this collection. But I have to say it's a beautifully simple and elegant line once again from Ilincic. 



There was Victorian craziness happening over at Topshop's  Meadham Kirchhoff. Only these two designers could get away with curls, ribbons and over the knee boots.



So yeah, that's about it from London. Over all I was very impressed with the new aesthetics coming through for next summer and I can't wait to see what's up for A/W 13. 
Hopefully that was fairly pain free for you all. Nice and short for those of you who are getting tired of my constant fashion blogging. I can tell you I'll stop soon, when Paris is over and done with, I promise. 
But for now that's it from me,

And on we trudge..........

Saturday, 22 September 2012

Hello everyone hope you're doing well. I've just gotten home from a day and night of hiking and messing about and I AM TIRED. Lets just say 4 hours sleep does not look good on me. And because I didn't take any photos of the trip I thought I'd do another blog about London Fashion Week because I want to and no one can stop me!

Matthew Williamson brought out some very cool sophistication with structure edge. A definite New York aesthetic from the looks but yet the patterns and emblishments still evoke a London-y feel. 

Vivienne Westwood Red Label was one of my favourites from LFW. She took inspirationg from old vintage England with 40s and 50s style. But what would a Vivienne Westwood line be without some querky stuff? I'm talking grey hair, curls and painted faces. 

Temperley London of course was ultra pretty and feminine with gorgeous colours and fabrics. I wanted to post all the photos from this collection but I thought it'd just bore you so here's my few favourites.

Next up comes Erdem which is always a winner with me. A collection of floraled lacy goodness. I want to buy everything in sight!

And one last collection for today which is Louise Gray for Topshop. As predicted, it was querky fantasical and fun. Completely Louise Gray.

So that's it guys hope you're enjoying your weekend so far. Right now I'm sitting in front of old re-runs of That 70s Show melting my brains out. Bet you're jealous.
