Slutty Brownies!!

I have literally spent all my revision time of the last three days stalking Rose's blog, The Londoner. Demi and I were supposed to be revising but instead we were grazing her blog when we found her own recipe for SLUTTY BROWNIES. The temptation to go for a cheeky shop for ingredients overcame our willingness to revise and off to Londis we went. Anyways, I am currently stuffed as I write this after eating brownies all afternoon and I definitely recommend this recipe! 

Here it is

1 pack of brownie mix
2 eggs
Cookie mix

Mix your brownie and cookie mix according to instructions...

Line the dish with the cookie dough
Layer your Oreos on top
Pour the yummy brownie mixture on top
Smoooooooth it over :)
Cook for 20 mins! YUM YUM!

Its nearly festival season, bring on the fashion

OK, so I'm not a die hard festival go-er, I must admit this is only my third year on the circuit of festivals such as Leeds, Reading and Creamfields. However, I do appreciate the need to look fabulous, despite the prospects of camping in a muddy field amongst fellow campers.

ASOS at the moment are stocking a t-shirt range, Wkshp, which both Alex and I have fallen in love with. Easy, loose t-shirts with some funky prints, perfect for festival partying. Take a look for yourself, here's some of my favourites...

P.S most of the tops are on sale, come on, who doesn't love a bargain!

Its all up to the guy... Isn't it?

Being in your teens, and living the life at University can be fun but, along with the fun can come complications. Take for example, you're on a night out, you see a guy you have spoken to before. Your eyes meet and before you know it you're locking lips like there's no tomorrow! But...where does it all go from there?

Many of us girls are under the impression that it has and always will be up to the guy to make the next step but can we challenge these conventions? I say yes!

I can only go from my little personal experience of this and if I have liked someone I have pursued it. A lot of us are scared to make the next move, but if the guy is thinking that too then you could be losing out on a great opportunity. So what, add him on Facebook or drop him a text. Really, what is the worst that could happen?

Like any good entrepreneur would tell you, take the risk as the reward could be huge!

Just a little bit of advice, have the confidence ladies!

P.S Guys take note too,  you can still make the effort.

Never Fully Dressed

Literally obsessed with this website right now!!

After spending about 3 hours grazing the pages of ASOS I gave up and remembered this website which actually sells on ASOS market place. I was surprised to find they had revamped their website and added way more to their line.

Having actually never bought anything off Never Fully Dressed I am still in love with pretty much everything on this site. All the clothes are very casual, feminine and chic and they are loved but the likes of Fearne Cotton and various members of the Made In Chelsea cast. Plus, you have the added bonus of knowing that there aren't 1000 other people wearing what you've got (*cough cough*...Topshop).

Wishing my student budget allowed for a massive spending spree!!!
Below are some of my favourite things but check it out for yourself!!

Jay-Z and Beyonce or Kim and Kanye?

OK, so I do realise that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have only recently made their romance official but it got me thinking, could they be the next big power couple? Despite the fact that Kim is famous for being famous I do love her as much as the next person, but, really how can she compete with the singing diva that is Beyonce?

Right, so lets compare the two with a light hearted game on Beyonce vs. Kim Top Trumps. Firstly Beyonce

Beauty: 8/10
Brains: 7/10
Talent: 10/10 (without a doubt!)
Style: 7/10
Arm Candy: 8/10

Beauty: 9/10
Brains: 9/10 (she is a businesswoman in her own right)
Talent: 6/10
Style: 8/10
Arm Candy: 7/10

Obviously these figures are based on my own opinion and I think Kim and Kanye have the potential to be something big and wonderful BUT honestly you couldn't have more of a talented twosome of Beyonce and her man Jay-Z

Come to your own conclusion on the power struggle of power couples...ENJOY

Pretty Pastels and Procrastination

Procrastination, a word that many of us can associate with especially when you have exams. If your like us and currently have exams then you will know exactly what I'm talking about...

From Left to right:
- OPI 'Rumples Wiggins' '
- Rimmel 045 'Misty Jade'
-OPI 'Whats with the cattitude?' 

During my 'break' from revision yesterday, which then turned into a mini marathon of Sex And The City reruns I decided that as it was feeling a bit more like summer, I would paint my nails. I'm really lusting over these pretty pastel colours at the moment whether it be in a cute dress or just something to put on your nails.

Pastels at 3.1 Phillip Lim S/S 2012

As you can see pastels are trending on many runways for S/S 2012 collections. These colours are pretty, elegant, demure and also very fun!
