We're spiralling

A few days ago I made rocky road. So I thought I'd do a lil tutorial to show you guys how to make them! It's quick and easy and only takes around 30 minutes.

What you'll need-

- 125g/4½oz soft unsalted butter
- 300g/10½ dark chocolate, broken into pieces
- 3 tbsp golden syrup
- 200g/7½oz rich tea biscuits
- 100g/3½ oz mini marshmallows



1. Heat the butter, chocolate and golden syrup in a heavy-base saucepan over a gentle heat. Remove the heat when the mixture is all melted.























2. Scoop out about 125ml/4½fl oz of the melted mixture and set aside in a bowl.


3. Put the Rich Tea biscuits into a plastic freezer bag and crush them using a rolling pin until they have turned into crumbs with some pieces of biscuits. 

4. Then put the biscuits and mini marshmallows into chocolate mixture and mix in.

5.  Tip the mixture into a square baking tin.
6. Pour the melted chocolate mixture you preserved earlier over and smooth down with a spatula.
7. Refrigiate for 2 hours or overnight.

And Voila you've done it! Hope your inspired by this to make your own!

I'm not weird, I'm limited edition















































(jumper grandma's house, jeans topshop, necklace vintage)

This jumper is ridiculously comfy I literally can't stop wearing it. Before anyone says/asks this photo's are taken in my bathroom, it's white and simple good for taking photo's.  

I'm trying to do more outfit posts, so stay tuned! Also a cooking post coming up in the near future.

Thank you so much for the recent followers, you have no idea how much I appreciate it!          I would absolutely positively love to get to the big 50! So please please please x1000000 follow!

And the song birds are singing





I recently watched Sex And The City Movie; which I highly recommend watching! I was watching the scene where Big shows Carrie her new closet (1st photo) and I was then reminded of one of my big dreams. To have a big closet! It may sound ridiculous but I grew up watching movies where the actresses own closets filled with beautiful things and everything looks utterly fabulous. I remember thinking 'why can't I have that!?'. 

I found a bunch of photo's to take inspiration from. I would love a white, classic style closet which looks effortlessly timeless. I want a closet worthy to bless the pages of Vogue or Elle. If I achieve this one wish I reckon I'll be pretty please with my self.  Hope everyone has a great bank holiday despite the not so great weather! 

Lots of Love I

All the others got me misunderstood





I went to my grandma's yesterday, she has so many amazing vintage clothes! I brought back this skirt which was originally a Maxi skirt. Maxi's are beautiful but not really my thing, so I decided to cut it. It was ridiculously easy and I really like it! What do you guys think?


Peace Out

Camden





  1. Camden Market
  2. Shop with loads of vintage style signs
  3. Vintage shop with an array of denim shorts
  4. Outfit for the day - h&m jumper, ebay shorts, converse shoes, vintage bag, charity shop necklace
I went to Camden yesterday there's such a cool vibe and amazing shops. I bought two bracelet cuff things and a few pairs of earring which were all ridiculously cheap! They'll probably be featured in a post soon.  


Peace Out,

It's like your always stuck in second gear




( top primark, jeans topshop)

After borrowing my sisters jeans for way way way too long, I bought my own pair. I really love them.



Forgot to blog about this, but last Friday I went to a vintage fair at South Bank. There were so really cool stuff there, but unfortunately I didn't have any money :( It was full of so many little shops they all looked lush. We then went and had some food on a rooftop which was yummy. Then I was lucky enough to watch a team of about 5 people shooting the new topshop collection! It was so cool, I loved all the clothes especially the jumpers.

Also I got twitter please follow me :) here's the link - http://twitter.com/#!/IsmaySmith
