The Best Pancake Recipe Ever!

Hi Guys!

Today I bring you the best pancake recipe I've ever encountered online! 
My mother is a pancake lover and since I've been gone for almost 4 weeks I decided to spoil her with the best pancakes I've ever made!
I was browsing online for some recipes when I remembered that Zoella made a post a while back about pancake day so I decided to take a look. On Zoe's post, she talks about how this is a Jamie's Oliver recipe and how it makes the pancakes fluffy and it's super easy! 
On my baking I decided to jump over a step that she used so if you want to see her post on her pancakes you can read it here



  • 6 Large Free Range Eggs   
  • 230 grams of Plain Flour  
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 280 millilitres of Milk
  • (2 Pinches Salt - I didn't used salt on mine)
  • Preparation
 First you need to separate the egg whites from the yolks and place them in separate bowls. Whisk egg whites until it has formed stiff peaks. In another bowl, add sifted flour to the egg yolks, then add the baking powder and the milk. Beat everything together until is well mixed. Fold the egg whites mixture into this bowl, being super careful not to lose too much air so it stays fluffy and whipped. Then using a ladle, spoon the mixture into a non-stick frying pan on a low heat. I added a little bit of butter to grease the frying pan. After few moments you will notice little bubbles popping to the surface meaning it's about time to flip the pancake! I use a metal spatula flipped the pancake with caution.
The pancakes should have a golden colour on both sides. You can then stack them in little towers and decorate however you like! I normally eat them with jelly, nutella or melted chocolate but you can decorate and eat them with everything you want! 

More pancakes!

My H&M Purchases this weekend

Hi Guys!

So this weekend I decided to go to H&M just to see what new things the store had and I exited the shop with only two articles. I didn't see a lot of exciting things but I didn't have a lot of money to spend inside the store which was also why I only purchased these items. 
The first piece that I bought was this alligator pattern tank top which I found fantastic! I fell in love the minute I stepped inside the store! As I walked in my eyes spotted this top and I had t get it!
 The pattern is really cool and cute and, since my brother is a huge fan of alligators and crocodiles I decided that I wanted to surprise him with this top! 
This top costs 9,99€.

The other product I bough was this adorable and cute kimono! I never owned a kimono but always wanted one but every time I searched for them they were either ugly or to small for me.
I didn't thought that I was one of those that uses floral products since it never was a thing that I admired in clothing. BUT my fashion sense is starting to change! A long time ago I exited my comfort zone and bought a pair of floral pants and I really liked them. 
This product is really smooth and I just love it soo much! I can't wait to wear it!
This product was 14.99€. 

 (The pattern is just gorgeous!) Floral Kimono 

Did you like my purchases? Do you have any recommendations for other products from the store? Leave them in the comments!

Primark Beauty Brushes Review!

Hi guys!

I know I've been away for a very long time but I've been suuper busy with university stuff that I didn't have the time ti write a blog post and I really missed it. I love writing my blog!
Today's post is a simple review of some brushes I bought from Primark a while ago. And, since I've been using them for the past month or so it's time for me to express how I fell about them.
When I posted my review of the H&M Foundation Brush ( here) a blogger told me that she loved a brush from Primark and that I should definitely try it out. My first opinion about them was that they were really cute with their rose gold metal and that the hairs were suuper soft! And super cheap as well!

I love this brush! It's angular shaped and is just perfect for contouring cheeks and give them definition. I use it every day since I bought it. It is lovely and super soft, and sits perfectly into the contours of my cheeks. 
This retails at €2 which is amazing since other brushes like the H&M one (check here) is around 6€. I didn't contour my face before I added this brush to my collection.
This brush is ideal for anyone who struggles with contouring as it sits perfectly in the hollows of the cheeks, one quick swipe upwards and your contour is done. Its so easy to build up colour with this as it is very light. I would recommend this brush to everyone.

Like the previous brush, I've been using it since I purchase it. It's really soft on both ends and I find that it easy to spread my foundation and concealer with it. It only cost 2€ which is a total bargain! The packaging is really cute and I think that for that price it's a really good deal!
I recommend this brush to everyone at least to take it on holiday just that you don't take your professional brushes with you!

I'm going to be totally honest here. I only bought this one because I never had a proper eyeshadow brush and I didn't care at all about the brow part of the brush. I have natural dark brows so I don't see the use for me to fill them even more making me look like a complete idiot!
This brush was only 1,5€ and I use it everyday I feel like using eyeshadow - which is mainly only once a week - and I have to say I like using this brush! Like the others the eyeshadow brush is super super soft and blends the eyeshadow perfectly to my eyelids. 
For the eyeshadow I definitely recommend this brush!

So, what are your opinions on these brushes from Primark? Do you think it's worth the little money I paid for it? If so, what other brushes are there that are really good? Let me know in the comments below!
