Christmas Cookies with my brother!

A quick recipe for some AMAZING YUMMY CHRISTMAS COOKIES!!!!!

Ingredients-

280g Plain Flour
225g Butter
140g Caster Sugar
1 Egg Yolk
1tsp Vanilla Extract
------
200g Icing Sugar
4-5tsp Cold Water
SPRINKLES!!!!



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!






SO YUMMY!!!


Please let me know if you try making these and send me your pics of any outcomes!!
Happy Christmas!

Boots and jeans


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.

Outfit-

Jeans- Dr Denim
Jumper- River Island
Leather Jacket- Miss Selfridge

I absolutely love these boots after trying to find some for ages! I didn't want a huge heel on them and these are perfect! They are super comfy and actually don't fall down constantly!! They are full suede and I am absolutely loving the trend at the moment! I bought these on a student discount promotion in River Island but they are normally priced at £70

Burberry Makers House


Last week I was scrolling through my Facebook and came across an event for 'Burberry Makers House' I looked into it, finding out it was showing the Burberry collection as well as presenting techniques of the processes to create the garments. It was also free and very close to the Fashion Retail Academy (Where I am currently studying). So on Monday me and a couple of friends went and along and really enjoyed seeing all of the Burberry heritage and craftsman ship.
I took a couple of images to share if any of you didn't get the chance to go along.


'Following the September 2016 runway event, our new London show venue has become the destination for some of Britain’s finest craft makers as they bring the inspiration behind the new collection to life in unexpected ways. This unique showcase of original works, and the processes involved in their creation, takes shape through a daily changing programme of activities and installations. '
