The Best Fluffy American Pancakes Recipe!

Best American Fluffy Pancakes Recipe The Best American Fluffy Pancakes RecipeI absolutely love pancakes and have them throughout the year, however I always make a few extra for Pancake Day as a treat! My favourite type of pancakes are lemon and sugar, I could eat so many of them as they’re so moreish but I also love them with Nutella and banana. This year I thought I would go for something different, the majority of the time I make crepe pancakes however I recently made fluffy pancakes which you can stack as high as you like with yoghurt and strawberries. This is the best fluffy american pancakes recipe that I have tried so I couldn’t not share this recipe with you, this will make 12 fluffy pancakes.

Ingredients:

  • 150g plain flour
  • 220ml milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • butter or oil for frying

Method:

  1. In a large bowl beat together the egg and milk.
  2. Then sift the flour and baking powder in, beat until smooth and all the little lumps are gone.
  3. Heat up a non-stick frying pan and add a small amount of either butter or oil, I personally love to use coconut oil.
  4. Use a ladle to pour the batter onto the pan.
  5. When the pancake starts to bubble turn over, then keep flipping until both sides are golden brown.
  6. Top with your favourite toppings, I used yoghurt and strawberries.

Optional: in-between each layer of pancake add a filling, I used yoghurt.

Now you can enjoy your pancakes, please excuse me whilst I go make some more and see how many I can stack!

Travel: Tenerife, Loro Parque

IMG_9345 IMG_9340I’m back with another travel post, these have been quite popular so I thought I would carry on with them and todays is Loro Parque in Tenerife. I absolutely love going to the wildlife parks especially on holiday, some of the animals which you see they don’t have back home so it’s quite exciting. I have been Loro Parque quite a few times in the past when I was much younger so it was very exciting to go back!IMG_9213When we first got to Loro Parque Aaron actually dropped my lens cover for my camera in this koi pond and they all went crazy over it, however someone who worked there was really lovely and got it out for me!
IMG_9294 IMG_9216I love seeing parrots abroad, I love how bright and colourful they are! There was a parrot show which was fun and they had them flying around, all the children which were there got to hold the parrots which was really lovely. One of my other favourite things was the gorillas, it was quite funny as it seemed like this one kept on posing. Every time we walked past he was in a different position right at the front of the glass, also how amazing does he look?!DSC00332We then headed to the dolphin, whale and then the sealion shows which all included an educational aspect where they would tell you about them, I actually learnt a few new things which was interesting! After this we carried on exploring and came across the leopards, I actually managed to catch one of them yawning on video which was actually incredible to see and you can watch that on my vlog here if you’re interested.
IMG_9245IMG_9232 IMG_9247I absolutely love penguins, they are so cute and Loro Parque has the world’s largest ‘penguinarium’ which is exciting as there are over 250 including gentoo, rock hopper, chinstrap and king penguins which are my favourite. These were actually one of the first animals we went to go see when we arrived! Penguins are just so beautiful especially King penguins as they are so majestic, it was amazing to see all of them swimming in the water as they were so graceful!

I took so many photos that I could never include them all here so picked out a few of my favourites to share with you, however if you want to see more of what I got up to at Loro Parque you can watch my vlog on my YouTube channel as well as my other travel vlogs!

Biscuiteers Fashionista

biscuiteers fashionista tinOver the past few months I’ve been lusting over Biscuiteers who create the most gorgeous handmade iced biscuits, so when I received some for Christmas from my parents I was very excited! After months of seeing their biscuits all over Twitter and Instagram I finally had my own tin and had to share them with all of you as they are beautiful.IMG_1404 IMG_1406 IMG_1403The Biscuiteers Fashionista tin is filled with biscuits from British designers including Alive Temperley, Matthew Williamson and Charlotte Tilbury. They are all so beautiful with my favourites being the flamingo bag, lipstick and trench coat although I love them all. They come in the most gorgeous tin which I have put on my desk, when the biscuits are all sadly gone I’m going store bits and pieces in the tin as it’s too pretty not to use! As you can see it has the biscuits which are included all around the edge of the tin and I think it’s super cute.IMG_1413These ones are vanilla flavoured and taste amazing, the biscuit is soft however there is a slight crunch from the icing. I’ve seen before that they have some biscuits which are chocolate flavoured so that’s something I’ll be looking into. I haven’t finished the whole tin yet as they are almost too good to eat, however I’ve been enjoying a few in the evening with a cup of tea and can see them being gone very soon!IMG_1417IMG_1418I wanted to also share this cute jolly ginger doctor biscuit, this is Aarons and I couldn’t not include this little guy in the post as he is adorable! I love the little box he comes in and makes such a cute treat! I’m now in love with Biscuiteers and am definitely going to purchase these as presents for my friends and family in the future for special occasions and birthdays, I can’t see anyone not loving these and I might have to treat myself to some every now and then too (it would be rude not to right?!).

Valentines Day with Forever Unique

valentines dresses forever uniqueIt’s not long until Valentines day and it’s something that I love to dress up for every year. Even before I was in a relationship I used to celebrate as was a great excuse to go out with my friends and have a good night together! Now I tend to go for a nice meal with my boyfriend and I always get stuck with ideas on what to wear, so I’ve put together some ideas from Forever Unique that would be perfect for Valentines Day whether you’re spending it with your partner or friends and family. In case you’re unfamiliar with Forever Unique, they are an online clothing boutique which specialise in both luxurious and unusual dresses. What makes them stand out is that unlike the majority of other clothing stores they put their own little twist on trends which make them a little more unique too.

You may already know that I love skater dresses, they accentuate your waist and flow over your hips which is a very flattering look. If you’re wanting to go for a bold look then the red sleeveless dress is perfect for you, it stands out and has a gorgeous textured fabric. The black lace dress is great if you’re like me and are unsure what to wear as you can never go wrong with a black dress. I feel like everyone should own that perfect black dress in their wardrobe which they can wear when in doubt and feel effortlessly sexy and beautiful. The lace is very classic and pretty whereas the plunging neckline makes it a little more daring. Then the last skater dress is like nothing I have ever seen before, the black and white appliqué lace over the sheer mesh bodice is absolutely beautiful and is sure to turn heads!valentines day jumpsuits forever uniqueIf you’re not wanting to wear a dress then a jumpsuit is a great alternative, paired with some killers heels they look incredible! I feel that jumpsuits are very classy and come in so many different styles that there is something for everyone. Whether you prefer a v-neck, strapless or something more flowy, I’ve got you covered! The first one is a strapless classic piece, it’s tailored so accentuates your silhouette and has a gorgeous contrast bodice. The golden zip makes it a little more special and it’s the little touches like this that I love. The next one is my favourite and I have completely fallen in love with it. I’m a big fan of black and nude pieces as the colours compliment each other very well and the embellished waistband is beautiful. I love the cut out side details and the plunge neckline which isn’t as low as others, so great if you like that style but don’t want it being too low. Then the last jumpsuit is a little bit more usual with the wide flowy legs which almost give the illusion of a maxi skirt. It has a beaded waistline which is beautiful and has a deep v-neck which is a little more daring.

What I love is that these are garments that will last years as they’re such high quality, they’re also pieces that would be lovely to wear throughout the year for lots of different occasions not just for Valentines day. Let me know if you’ve got any plans for Valentines Day this year and what you think of these Forever Unique dresses and jumpsuits!
