My Bucket List #4

Hey guys! Welcome to my blog!

Since I’ll be leaving school in 10 days time, I decided to put together a bucket list for me to complete once I’ve left school! It may seem a little early but these are aspirations I hope to one day achieve!

1. Lose enough weight so I can fit into a size 10 🙂

-I would love to lose enough weight to fit into a 10! I’d feel so confident! XD

2. Travel 

-Who doesn’t want to travel? I think my first stop would either be America, Japan or Italy. 

3. Learn another Language

-I did start to learn French and really enjoyed it! I want to finish learning French, so I can then learn another language like Japanese, Korean, Spanish or German.

4. Meet someone

-Of course, we have no idea of what life might throw at us…but I’m sure that one day we will all meet someone. 🙂

5. Family

-This kinda links to meeting someone, but in the future I’d like to start a family of my own 🙂

6. Music

-I’d love to produce my own music. Whether it be on YouTube or with a record company. I want to share my music with the world and connect with people.

7. O2 Arena

-This links to ‘Music’, but my dream is to perform in the O2 Arena, London. Along with performing in other countries!

8. Professional Cookery

– Hopefully in September, I will start my college course in Professional Catering and will learn to prepare dishes from around the world!

9. Earn enough money to buy my parents a place in Spain.

– My mum and dad LOVE Spain. Every since our holiday in 2015, my parents have adored the place XD. They always speak about getting a place in Spain and moving out there XD. So I want to help them get there. 🙂

10. Earn at least 200 followers on my blog

– I really enjoy writing on my blog and hope to some day become inspiration to others. I want to be some one that others can look up to and become inspired by. So I will start today. On the 6th June 2017. I will achieve 200 followers by the 6th June 2018. Lets do this.

What about you? Do you have a bucket list? Ambitions? Let me know in the comment section below! 😀

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! If you did enjoy it, give it a like! XD

When You’re Hungry, Eat Some Shortbread.

I love shortbread, I could eat it everyday if it didn’t make me put on weight! It would be classed as a miracle food and have its own slogan like ‘EAT IT, POOP IT, REPEAT~’. That would be funny, I’d give it a 10/10 just because of that XD.

Lots of people love shortbread, that’s why it is popular! My cousin was like ‘I don’t like shortbread’ and I was like ‘what? your crazy woman, CRAZY!’:D But hey! everyone is entitled to their own opinion! If everyone was the same we would be one boring population.

Okay! rant over.

This is a recipe I wanted to share with you all, because everyone deserves something naughty once in a while! Shhhh! I won’t tell if you won’t! 😉

This recipe makes 20-25 shortbread, depending on the size that you want them!

IngredientsDSC_0460

  • Plain flour- 180g/6oz
  • Caster sugar-80g/3oz
  • Stork butter-125g/4-1/2oz

Utensils

  • Mixing bowl
  • Rolling pin
  • Table spoon
  • Cookie Cutter

Preparation time: 30 minutes               Cooking time: 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Health instructions

  1. Wash hands well before you start cooking, you don’t want bacteria poisoning the treats.
  2. If you have long hair, then tie it up with a hairband to reduce the risk of hair in your short bread.
  3. Wear an apron (Recommended) to keep your clothes from getting dirty.
  4. Avoid coughing, sneezing and scratching your head around your cooking space bacteria will invade and your shortbread will sprout hair!

MIXTURE

  1. Preheat the oven to 190c/375f/Gas 5
  2. Put the butter and sugar into the mixing bowl and beat with a spoon until it is light and fluffy. (Like fluffy clouds in the sky)

3. Then add the flour and stir well until it looks like a crumble that sticks together when compressed and forms a dough. Be careful to not leave clumps of butter otherwise the dough will be gooey.( If the mixture is gooey then add some more flour/If the mixture is too dry then consider adding more butter or 2 teaspoons of milk)

4. Sprinkle a hard, flat surface with flour then place your ball of dough in the center.(Be sure to have a clean space when following this instruction.)

5. With your rolling pin, flatten your dough so it is about half a centimeter thick.(Before you begin, sprinkle your dough with a pinch of flour as well as your rolling pin to stop your mixture from sticking to the pin.)

6. With your desired cookie cutter or knife, begin to cut out shapes. (Don’t be too rough, cookies have feeling too)

7. Place your soon to be shortbread cut outs onto a non greased tray.(They think they are going to Disney world, don’t tell them the truth!)

8. With a slender point of an object like a chop stick, you can create faces on your shortbread to give them….lets say character! So when you bite the head off that smiling shortbread, your sure to feel bad! XD

9. After customizing your naughty treats, sprinkle a teaspoon of sugar over them and place them in the oven and time them for 15 minutes or until they are golden brown.

(And now you wait…and wait…and DSC_0496wait…you know you want those shortbread biscuits…they are calling your name saying “EAT US!~ PLEASE~enter your name here! YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO,    WITH US BEING DELICIOUS AND ALL!~”)

10. When cooked, place the shortbread cookies onto a cooling rack to cool down (or plate if you don’t have a cooling rack)

11. ….You can probably guess what number 11 is right? Well let me give you a hint. It involves your shortbread and your desire to eat them because they smell amazing…

Go on. Have a shortbread, you deserve it after putting up with my nonsense!XD

 

ENJOY~~!

But I’m here now and I plan to give it my all and make it inspiring and fun for you all to read.

I’ll mainly write about fashion, cooking, music and art and I’ll occasionally post about healthy living 🙂 of course this is my first post and I hope you will persevere with me and stick about as I’ve got some content coming out that I’m quite excited about.
