My Galentines Pancake Day 2018


I know I've been super lacking in posts recently, uni work and life has honestly just been super hectic and I know this is a little late but I still wanted to share with you however I spent my Valentines Day.
Me and a couple of girlfriends got together and decided to combine Valentines Day and pancake day for our own chill out time to make homemade pancakes.
Here I thought I'd let you know how it went and the recipe we used for our 2 different pancake mixes.

Our 'proper' pancake recipe:
  • 100g plain flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 300ml milk
  • Your choice of toppings
So as you can see this recipe is super simple and involves 3 main ingredients and whatever toppings you choose to have for yourself. We found that this made around 5 crepe-type pancakes and they were super yummy, my personal choice of toppings for these pancakes was nutella and sliced banana.
Tip: Personally I think it might be extra yummy if some vanilla extract (or something similar) was added just for extra flavour.

Our second recipe was for thick banana panckes:
  • 100g plain flour
  • 1 banana, mushed (although we only used around 3/4 of the banana in the end)
  • 300ml milk
  • Your choice of toppings


We decided to make these because we found that between the three of us five crepe-like pancakes weren't enough however we didn't have enough eggs. These pancakes are a lot smaller and thicker than the other ones and again this made about 5 pancakes.
Personally I prefer normal pancakes to banana pancakes however these were honestly not too banana-esque at all, and again I think that adding something like vanilla extract would make it extra tasty. 
My choice of topping for this pancake was some golden syrup.

I really enjoyed doing this with my friends as they're both in relationships but aren't able to see their boyfriends and it was nice to just spend the day together and do something.
And obviously it fell on a Wednesday so it was still part of the Weekly Wednesday tradition.

Hopefully you guys enjoyed this little post and the recipes that I gave you.
What toppings do you put on your pancakes?

Eating at... Pizza Margherita [Lancaster]

So since I have just returned to university for term 2 me and my mum headed out for a final meal before she returned home. We decided to try a local Italian nearby which looked lovely and seemed to be getting great reviews.
From the outside it looks okay, not overly exciting although I love the little plants, although in the evening their lighting does look quite pretty.

Spanish 101: The Weather

Oh my how much I hate this topic. Honestly for me at least talking about the weather is Spanish is so over complicated and there are certain things that you just have to memories rather than following typical Spanish rules.

Liebster Blog Award 2017


So I was nominated for this award by my amazing best friend Beth whose blog is actual goals. 
You should definitely heck her out at lifewithbee.com
She's been working really hard doing blogmas so she definitely deserves some love. On her post she gave me some questions to answer so here goes. 

1. What inspired you to start your blog?

I actually had a blog way back in like 2013 and just created it for something to do outside school and just because I thought it was fun. However for this blog I was just inspired to create it as I genuinely enjoy blogging and although I find it harder to keep up with when I'm at uni I still like posting.

2. Do you have any pets, if not do you want any?

I have 1 dog, who is adorable, called Purdey and that is it.

3. What is your favourite thing about Christmas?

For me, I love Christmas because of all the decorations and festivities, all the films and songs, obviously the food. Also I just love coming back home and spending time with family and friends and not really having to worry about doing work 24/7.

4. If you could visit any place in the world where would you choose?

This is pretty easy for me, I would go to Disneyland Florida. As a child (6 and 8) I was lucky enough to go however I really don't remember anything at all so I'd like to go again so that I can properly experience it this time.

5. Who is your inspiration?

I would say that my inspiration is probably my mum and dad. Both of them have built their way up in their careers and work ridiculously hard and have always managed to give me everything I want and more.

6. What are the top three things on your bucket list?

  1. Go to Disneyland Florida
  2. Become as fluent as I can in Spanish
  3. Travel the world

7. What is your greatest achievement so far?

I think my greatest achievement so far was getting back my first year uni results just because it was such a big deal and part of it was Spanish which I had never done before.
So I'm really proud of myself for getting good first year grades.

8. What is your favourite beauty product of all time?

My holy grail beauty product would have to be Benefit's Hoola bronzer, this is because I have had it such a long time and I still have found a better bronzer. Also it just suits so many skintones and blends in beautifully.

9. Cats or Dogs?

100% dogs, I believe I might actually be allergic to cats which is unfortunate but I have always preferred dogs.

10. How would you describe your personality in one word?

Hmmm this is a hard one. I would have to say 'caring'. I'd like to think that I care a lot, I hate to see my friends upset and pretty much always put my friends first and I am always there for them whenever I can be.

11. What is your favourite memory of 2017?

My favourite memory of 2017 would be going ice-skating with my dad because I finally learnt how to do so. Especially since when I was younger I only went once and basically just held onto the wall the whole time whilst my dad showed off.

11 Random Facts About Me

Cheer Christmas Meal 2017

Friday night was my cheerleading Christmas meal. This year I convinced myself to join a society and I chose cheerleading and I am part of the Peal stunt squad. My uni have 3 stunt squads (pearl, ruby and onyx) and 1 dance squad (diamond). Go Pearlies!! <3
The meal was at 'The Crafty Scholar' which is in Lancaster town centre, I have never eaten there so I was intrigued to see what it would be like. The whole 3-course meal and 2 glasses of alcohol cost £15 which is quite a good deal in my opinion.
