If I had a world of my own everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't.

Style Crush Nina Dobrev

In love with this woman. She is amazing. Soo effortlessly stunning. I would say her style is somewhat in between Elena Gilbert and Katherine Pierce but she definitely leans more towards Katherine Pierce then she does to Elena. Also the fact that she is dating Ian Somerhalder is more reason to be envious but they really are a perfect and hot couple. 

So effortless yet tres chic 

Top 12 summer essentials

I tend to overpack when I go on holiday so no doubt I will end up taking around 30 toiletries, not to mention I will end up buying a whole load when I'm away. I believe these 12 products however are my most used products when I'm on holiday. They are my essentials unlike the others that I barely use and just roll around in my suitcase.

Earrings haul: Topshop and more

Have recently been loving long dangly earrings so decided to treat myself. I believe every girl should own a pair as they elongate the face making it look slimed out and more feminine.

Nail Polish Collection: Barry M

I have an obsession when it comes to nail polish which is probably why half of my massive nail polish collection is filled with colours I wouldn't even wear. My favourite brand of nail polish is Barry M. The cream polishes are thick and opaque meaning only one coat is required. They also wear well and last long as there is minimal chipping plus compared to OPI which is quite pricey they are fairly cheap in fact for such prestigious quality the price of under £5 is a bargain. 

115 Red Black   308 Berry Ice Cream  272 Shocking Pink

279 Bright Pink  305 Pink Flamingo  309 Strawberry Ice Cream 


296 Coral  318 Peach Melba 304 Mint Green (Came out blue in this picture)

317 Blue Moon  306 Blueberry Ice Cream  294 Cyan Blue

No-bake chocolate cheesecake

There is nothing I love more then chocolate and cheesecake and baking so of course chocolate cheesecake for me is the Ian Somerhalder of all desserts.

and what better way to use up left over chocolate and Philadelphia then to make a no-bake chocolate cheesecake. Reason why I say no-bake is because unless I pick up a baked one from the Hummingbird bakery I would rather whip up something I can eat the same day then having to wait overnight. Plus it tastes so indulgent you wouldn't notice the difference between it being baked and refrigerated. 

150g digestive biscuits 
45g butter 
1tbsp caster sugar
100g icing sugar  
75g milk chocolate melted
75g dark chocolate melted
2tbsp cocoa powder mixed with a little hot water 
1 tub cream cheese 

Preparation method:

1. Crush digestive biscuits and mix with melted butter and 1tbsp of caster sugar. Then press into a cake tin that has been lined with baking paper and refrigerate.

2. Beat the cream cheese and icing sugar together and fold in the melted chocolate and cocoa powder and mix thoroughly. 

3. Spread into tin on top of crushed biscuits, refrigerate for about two hours and serve.
