I've found some new music...

Hello there!
Well, yesterday I was patrolling iTunes in search for some new good bands. Of course I was looking in the Alternative music section, I found some pretty cool bands which I wanted to share with you, so here is goes...

1.      First Aid Kit - Lions Roar. So this band has been around for a while now, I remember I had found them like half a year ago. I liked them at first, but I just left it. But now I have popped it on to my phone, I like it quite a bit. I really like "Emmylou". These girls really remind me of the Florence and the Machine type music, and if you read my Favourites of 2012 then you know I'm quite a fan of Florence. If you are into calm, quite country styled music, then you will love this band!

2.      The Lumineers - The Lumineers. Now these guys are popular in our little Indie community. But I never really listened to them. Yesterday, I took a look and they are pretty good, I really like their song "Classy Girls". I love the fact that they are kind of up-beat but slow and then fast, if you know what I mean. They really remind me of an American-type Mumford and sons, which also if you read my Favourites of 2012 blog post you would know I love them. I recommend them if you're into indie/country music. 

3.      Veronica Falls - Waiting for something to happen. I have never heard of this band in my life until yesterday! But I like them. One of my favourite songs is, "Teenage" I don't know why but I like it. They remind me of the Vaccines, who I absolutely love! I recommend these lot! 

4.       Finally, I re-discovered a song by THE ARCTIC MONKEYS! My favourite band is actually the Arctic Monkeys, and I now found the song, "Mardy Bum" and I am obsessed! I love it! I love the lyrics, I love Alex Turners voice, I just love all of it! I highly recommend it! 

So that pretty much concludes it! Though currently I am listening to Jake Bugg, I think it's pretty cool. But I might have to make a different blog post about it!

Chocolate Chip Cookies! - Recipe

Today, like always, I was extremely bored but unlike most days, I decided to do something! I made Chocolate Chip cookies! Now these weren't any normal cookies, these were delicious cookies! I decided to share this recipe with you because I want everyone to get a chance to eat such amazing food, so here it is! 

  • 2 cups plain flour.
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda.
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted. 
  • 1 cup dark soft brown sugar.
  • 1/2 granulated sugar.
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
  • 1 egg.
  • 1 egg yolk.
  • Chocolate chips of your choice, I used milk and white chocolate chips.
Method : 
  1. Preheat your oven to 165 degrees. 
  2. Grease 2 cookie sheets or line your baking pan with parchment paper. 
  3. Begin to melt the butter in a small pan over a small heat. 
  4. In a bowl, mix together flour, soda  and salt. Make sure to stir everything together well! Set this bowl aside. 
  5. Once the butter has melted, cream together the butter, sugar, vanilla, egg and egg yolk in seperate bowl. Do this until everything is fully blended. 
  6. Gradually mix in the dry ingredients into the butter/sugar mixture. Make sure not to over mix it! 
  7. Then, using a wooden spoon, stir in your choice of chocolate chips.
  8. Put your cookies on the cookie sheet about 8cm apart from each other. 
  9. You want to bake the cookies for about 17-20mins or until golden brown. 
  10. Once the cookies have finished baking, place them onto a cooling rack and leave for 10-20mins to cool. 

I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as I do! Leave a comment below telling me how your cookies turned out!

By the way? Do you like the new look of my blog?

Hi All,
Okay, yes, here comes the day again... Valentines day, is it just me who despises this idea? I think it's fun when you have someone to share with but as a teenage girl, who still plays with Lego and is probably socially awkward, I'm worried. I'm honestly worried. I'm not necessarily the hottest (or most popular) chick in school but people do know of my existence and I'm pretty sure that I will not have a valentine this year. Luckily, I am not alone. My best friend, also a socially awkward weirdo feels the same way as me.
 We both believe that there shall be no love for us on Valentines Day so we have created the ''Forever Alone Sleepover.'' We decided to do this on the weekend after V-day. This mainly consists of a sleepover of watching sad movies, eating as much shit as possible, and listening to beautiful love songs - mainly from Lana Del Rey. We will cry and be happy that we at least have each other.
Do you believe you will be alone this Valentines Day? Don't worry! Sit back, pop on Titanic with a MASSIVE box of vanilla (my fave) ice-cream and just let yourself go!
Just remember, just because you don't have a Valentine, it doesn't mean you are some kind of crazy freak who will never find love (other than me, who this applies to).

Good luck and as always,
'till we meet again

First Favourites of 2013 - January

Hi All,
So I decided to attempt to make a blog of my favourites for each month, this means that it will be like a little kind of diary of my most loved things as I age. So my method of doing this is just adding to the post at different times when I have different favourites, this will ensure that I don't miss anything out. I think it will be great to do this and I hope I can post one of these at the end of each month. In these I will include mainly things such as favourite songs, lyrics, weird stuff, food, images and occasionally maybe even an item of clothing! I know we're already into February but I thought better late than never right?
So lets begin...

  • I have been loving to chew '5 gum' in school. It's just so refreshing and gives you something to do whilst you are dying of boredom in lessons! Although we are not allowed to chew gum in school many of us still do, including myself, and I honestly love this gum after eating something smelly or just to chew gum!  

  • My Nivea Milk and Honey lip balm has been an absolute must have! In England the weather has been a complete mess and this has had a huge effect on my lips! So I love having this handy at all times so I can just moisturize my lips whenever I feel like it. 

  • For Christmas I actually received a watch which I completely love! It is so beautiful and I think it's just great! I have been wearing this literally EVERYWHERE! This watch is actually from River Island so it was most certainly a great deal!

  • For favourite songs of the moment I have been completely in L.O.V.E with three Daughter songs. This is yet again indie music so if you like that sort of stuff I definitely recommend all of these! I have been listening to "Peter", "Youth" and best of all "Run". I checked and through the course of four days I listened to run 216 times! This song has been on repeat day and night! I just love the words and her beautiful voice! 

  • Seeing as I have just mentioned three of the most amazing songs currently, here are some of the best lyrics (in my opinion) from these songs...  

  • For Christmas I was also gifted a pair of Chuck Taylor All Star Converse Leather Hi's in white. I am completely obsessed with them! and have been wearing them EVERYWHERE! I am really a person who LIVES in converse so these are perfect for me especially in the winter! 

Those are pretty much my favourites!
