Cute & Dainty Bracelets!

Hey Beauts,

So the other day I saw someone post on Facebook about these bracelets that you tie on and eventually they fall off and in return you are granted a wish or good luck or something along those lines. Whilst you might be thinking I am crazy for thinking myths like that are true, you are wrong! The reason I purchased a couple are because the bracelets are absolutely adorable.  

So obviously I had to pick up an elephant because it's an elephant and I picked the red colour because it matched the red string on the dinosaur, which again is absolutely adorable! The idea behind the bracelet is cute, however quite bonkers if you don't mind me saying. The reason I purchased them though is because I am really bad when it comes to throwing things away or losing things, especially things I really like. Since purchasing these, I have lost the dinosaur and the elephant broke. For once though, I am happy about it, because I got a little bit of happiness from them and whilst I owned them, they were of course - adorable. 

To top it off, when purchasing these, in the notes to the buyer I wrote 'Do you consider these notes? If so, draw a smiley face' and when I received the package in the post, there was indeed a smiley face in the package which completely made my day! Have you ever purchased anything from TinyWishes? Don't you think these bracelets are super cute? Tell me below what you think of them, I'd love to hear your opinions and remember to follow on GFC and BlogLovin' if you aren't already! Speak to you next time :) <3

Delicious Chicken Noodle Soup!

Hey Beauts,

So since the last recipe post went down really well and you all walked away with mouth-watering feelings, I thought I would do another post. Because I am quite ill at the moment - Sore throat, blocked nose & no voice I decided to make some soup that was really easy to eat, yet still tasty! This is what I came out with!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes


900ml Chicken Stock
1 Chicken Breast
1 Teaspoon Ginger
1 Garlic Clove
50g Noodles
2 Tablespoons Sweetcorn
Half an Onion
Soy Sauce
Basil Leaves

1 - Chopping!
Take the ginger and slice finely.
Take the garlic and chop finely.
Take the onion chop into small pieces.
Take the basil leaves and cut up.

2 - Cooking!
Pour the chicken stock into a pan.
Add the chicken, ginger and garlic.
Bring to the boil and then reduce the heat to let simmer for 20 minutes.

3 - Adding! 
Take the chicken out of the pan carefully and shred between two forks and add back into the pan.
At the same time, also add the sweetcorn, onions, noodles and a few drops of soy sauce.

4 - Eat! 
Ladle into two bowls, add the chopped basil leaves and soy sauce and enjoy.

This recipe tasted absolutely delicious and the steam from the bowl opened up my airways. Perfection. Even dipping bread and butter in was scrumptious, so I highly suggest testing this recipe out! If you do try it out, be sure to leave a comment down below telling me what you would change about this recipe and how it turned out for you. Did you enjoy it? and do you like these recipe posts? Remember to follow on GFC and BlogLovin' if you aren't already and I will speak to you again soon. :) <3

Accessorize haul!

Hey Beauts,

Let's begin with me saying that I am so so so so SO sorry for the lack of posts in April. As you know, all my deadlines for university were in April and now I have finished! I am currently enjoying my days off from work doing absolutely nothing and the joy of not having to worry about university work every other second is very welcoming. 2 posts for April was absolutely disgusting for a whole month in the blogging world, so May will bring a hell of a lot more posts for you all to enjoy! 

So way back at Christmas I was given a £10 gift card for Accessorize. Having never shopped properly in Accessorize before due to thinking it was too expensive, this time I was proven wrong. I went in looking for a nice black handbag, but as there was only small black bags and I was looking for something a little bigger, I came out with these beauties instead.

I picked up a set of 10 multi coloured/shaped stud earrings as for the past three or so years I haven't worn earrings on a daily basis and I thought it was time to get a set of earrings that I could wear regularly. I thought this set was the best as I could get away with wearing any of these (except maybe the blue ones) to work, without getting into trouble. So far they've been proving great and the backs fit on nice and tight. Perfect. These were £8.

Next I just had to pick up some elephant jewellery. I know I will hardly be able to wear the elephant earrings due to being at work all of the time, but I just couldn't leave them behind. Do any of you do that where you pick something up and you know you shouldn't buy it, but you've already picked it up and you can't put it back down. Well that is what I ended up doing. They were only £5, so I thought what the heck! :)

Lastly I picked up the gorgeous elephant necklace at £7. They also had a larger and longer necklace which was a little bit more expensive, but I decided to be good and save a little money. They also had both necklaces in a silver colour and a golden colour. I wish I could buy them all! This necklace is super cute though and I've been getting a lot of use out of it. The little delicate details are so adorable and perfect. Elephants are the best! :D  

I hope you enjoyed this little haul and I promise posts will come out more regularly now. What do you think of these purchases? Are you loving these elephant pieces too? Aren't they just adorable?! Leave a comment down below letting me know, I love reading all your feedback. If you aren't already, follow on GFC and Bloglovin' so you don't miss out on any future posts! <3
