I want to start posting more now I am visiting more places and doing more things but as I am very busy at the moment I just don't get the time to post as much as I would like to but lots of things are coming up!
During March me and Ant (my boyfriend) went to visit his Nan in Liverpool and have a weekend away! It was so lovely and I enjoyed every minute especially as he showed me around everywhere he knew as I haven't ever been near Liverpool before!
We went on the Friday night late so just went to bed when we got there but on the Saturday we woke up early to go to Chester! Its such a beautiful town and I really enjoyed looking around the streets and shops plus it was sunny which made it even better!
We then went to Cheshire Oaks from there and wow that was amazing!! I wish I could have bought everything but unfortunately couldn't buy a lot as I am saving for an America trip this summer! But it was brilliant and I can't wait to go back! We then went to Ant's Nan's and had dinner before climbing Helsby Hill (the wrong way may I add so we did get lost climbing up but it was an adventure!) as we got to the top the sun was setting and it was the most amazing view but the photographs unfortunately don't do it justice! We took a few pics and started walking back down before it got too dark!
(This night we planned on getting the Train to Liverpool and seeing the docks but unfortunately there was a gas explosion so our train couldn't get there and we struggled to get back so we didn't get back to Ant's Nan's until 1am!)
On the Sunday morning we woke up early again and went to a farm shop that Ant's Nan wanted to take us too and it was really nice and sold lots of good food and pieces so I picked up some biscuits to take home.
We then headed home but stopped at Wirral beach on the way to walk along the sand and grab an ice cream, it was a really nice and quiet beach and the perfect way to end our amazing weekend away!
I just can't wait to go back!
Here are a few photos to show our weekend away-

A quick recipe for some AMAZING YUMMY CHRISTMAS COOKIES!!!!!
280g Plain Flour
140g Caster Sugar
1 Egg Yolk
1tsp Vanilla Extract
200g Icing Sugar
4-5tsp Cold Water
These decorations are great cause they look beautiful and Christmassy but are crispy so aren't those hard silver ones!!
Mix the butter and sugar into a bowl into it becomes light and fluffy
Add the egg yolk- But keep the egg white in a separate bowl for later!
Add the Vanilla Extract
And the flour!
Then mix all of the ingredients in the bowl together until combined!
Separate the dough into two balls and pop these into the fridge for 30-60 mins
After take the dough out and roll them on a baking sheet- Preferably with a rolling pin and not a lemonade bottle as I didn't have one!
Cut out the desired shapes with the cookie cutters and put them in the oven for 10-15mins on 190c /375f /Gas Mark 5
After the cookies are cooked take them out the oven and leave them to cool- they may not look cooked but they will once cooled so make sure they don't stay in for more than 15mins because they will burn!
To make the icing mix the icing sugar and water until you have a fairly stiff consistency- just keep adding water slowly to get to this.
Then its time to decorate which is everyone's favourite bit! especially the little ones!
Please let me know if you try making these and send me your pics of any outcomes!!

Hey!! Recently I have been really enjoying styling up my black over the knee boots. My last post showed them with a knitted dress and bare legs, but as the air is turning colder and more crisp I have started wearing them with jeans. And I actually think I prefer wearing them like this as I don't have to worry about them falling down because they fit perfectly and the jeans seem to actually hold them up!
Today I went shopping and managed to capture a few pics to show you how they look and how I have styled them up this time for the colder months ahead.
