The most amazing brownie recipe♥

Hi everyone im in need of sharing my brownie recipe with you, me and my friend made these the other day as i am at home from injuring myself by falling down a flight of steps at a club, resulting in a huge knee injury :( so im having to declare my love for them as they are the most delicious things ive ever made!

185g unsalted butter
185g best dark chocolate
85g plain flour
40g cocoa powder
50g white chocolate
50g milk chocolate
3 large eggs
275g golden caster sugar

1. Cut the butter into small cubes and place into a medium, break up the dark chocolate and drop into the boil, place the bowl over a saucepan of boiled water and leave until melted thoroughly, occasionally stir.

2. Turn your oven onto 160C/conventional180C/gas 4 (most ovens take 10-15 minutes to heat up).
Use a shallow tin, and place non stick or greaseproof paper to the bottom of the tin to allow the brownies to come away easily when cooked.
Now tip the flour and cocoa powder into a sieve and sieve into a medium sized bowl until completely mixed together, without any lumps.

3. Using a large sharp knife cut up the milk and white chocolate into small chunks so you end up with rough squares.

4. Break the eggs into a large mixing bowl and tip in the sugar, using a hand, electric whisk or electric cake mixer, whisk until the eggs form a thick white almost milkshake substance, If the mixture that runs off the beaters leaves a trail on the surface of the mixture in the bowl for a second or two, you're there.

5. Pour the cooled chocolate mixture over the eggy mouse then gently fold together using a rubber spatula, continue this until the mixture is a rich brown colour all over.

6. Sift the cocoa and flour mixture into this, gently fold this in with the mixture using the same action as #6 it looks powdery at first but persist until the mixture becomes gungy fudgey looking.
Then stir in the chopped chocolate pieces made earlier.

7. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking tin, spread evenly to look like this:

8. Place into the preheated over and put your timer on for 22-23 minutes, when the buzzer goes of open the over and shake the tin, if the mixture wobbles in the middle then they arent done, leave in the oven for another five minutes, or until the mixture is still, and should be left with a top shiny papery crust:

Take out of the oven and leave until completely cooled.
Then cut into desired shapes e.g triangles, squares or even hearts :)

Please anyone who uses this recipe let me know how you got on, and send me some of your photos if you take any.
I hope you all find these as delicious as me my family and friends have :D

Hi everyone, im updating my blog with what ive been upto in the last few days :)
Monday i had my interview for Boss, which is shown in the post below, Tuesday i spent the day in London with my family, the day included going on the London Eye, the London Dungeons, Madamme Taussauds, and dinner :)

Overall the day was extremely tiring after alot of waiting around for the entrance into the exhibitions, even though we had fast track tickets, i most definitely recommend spending the extra money on the better tickets as the ques for the ordinary line were ridiculously oversized!

The Eye was incredible as i havent ever been on it before.
It takes around £26-28 minutes to get around the whole thing and it reaches at the top to 443ft in the air, it is officially the world's tallest cantilevered observation wheel!

The view from the Eye was incredible you could literally see for miles upon miles of London city skyscrapers, the The Gherkin, London Bridge, The Houses of Parliament and many more of Londons main attractions!

The view from the top of the Eye.. Amazing isnt it?

Madame Taussauds was alot of fun also, i visited here about five years ago and this time i think the experience was a whole lot better, plus im at an age now when i have more appreciation for the process in creating the artwork involved!

The likeness in the waxworks was ridiculously similar to what an actual person would look like, especially how have they have recreated such a likeness to the celebritys they feature!

I think the London Dungeons wasnt as good as i expected, i think you have to be younger to appreciate the 'horror' experience although the idea to the attraction is very well thought out and the stories they tell of the life through the years in London are rather interesting and i think you could learn alot if you listen carefully enough lol!

In the black cab :D

Hugo Boss job :D

Helloooo everyone, ah i am extremely excited as i am now working for Hugo Boss!
Ive finally got a job im so proud to have, and best of all im not just going to be a sales advisor i am a supervisor eeeek!
It has taken me so long to finally get a job there so im feeling rather elated that im going to have a career in fashion even if it does mean i still have to attend college for another year to get my diploma!
Plus i will also have Hugo Boss uniform :D and i will have 20% discount, i think im going to be spending my wages before i even get them lol!
I will be selling the premium and superiour Boss black, tailored suits also the other Boss labels!
The store is brand new so i will be one of the first to work there, also were having a Boss launch party which i will be attending, where the Boss merchandisers, visualizers and other Boss employees will be attending (and hopefully a celebrity or two haha!)

This is what i wore to the interview, i didnt want to be to casual as i knew i had to somewhat impress, so i just wore a United Colours of Benneton black dress, Vintage belt and my Topshop wedges, i also used my Dolce & Gabbana Micol bag which is shown somewhere in one of my recent blog posts.
Sorry for the really bad photo but i had to take a quick picture on my blackberry!

Hope everyones ok, how has your week been so far? :)

Knuckle Rings ♥

Ahhhh ive found a new jewellery obsession KNUCKLE RINGS, i loveeeeeeeeee them!
I seem to be seeing rings everywhere i look at the moment, and im constantly trying to find new styles, and i think this is something that is extremely me, grunge mixed with an unusual eye catching edginess.
I love how there reminiscent of a medieval suit of armor, It's like sexy, chic modern take on something you wear in your everyday life. The best part is that the ring is hinged, and bends with your knuckle.
Absolutely killer.

Also i just wanted to share with you the latest addition to my shoe collection..

Just a little short post to show some of the jewellery i brought today, im really into dirty metal, black and turquiose colours at the moment!

With the first necklace i like that you can turn it around and wear it as either chainmetal style or with the metal circles showing :)
Also i really love anything with crosses on them, im not really to sure why i just know im wearing alot of these looks at the moment with either white, turquoise, black or grey nail varnish to match :)

My Favourite Bag

The Dolce & Gabbana D&G Micole bag was brought for me as an 18th birthday present from my dad, which we spent the day up in London scouring round many designer shops looking for the perfect bag :)
I love the feel of it as it is extremely soft leather, and the turquoise lining is so pretty and cute, it also had a padlock and key with D&G engraved into both, which you can use to lock the bag to keep everyone out of my business ;)
I found this bag from Selfridges in London and it costs £320
