I 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.
- 150g plain flour
- 220ml milk
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- butter or oil for frying
- In a large bowl beat together the egg and milk.
- Then sift the flour and baking powder in, beat until smooth and all the little lumps are gone.
- Heat up a non-stick frying pan and add a small amount of either butter or oil, I personally love to use coconut oil.
- Use a ladle to pour the batter onto the pan.
- When the pancake starts to bubble turn over, then keep flipping until both sides are golden brown.
- 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!
I’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!When 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!
I 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?!We 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.
I 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!
It’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!If 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!
