The Favourites: November

Long time, no see - I'm actually going to stop apologising for not blogging, because it's just going to get super repetitive! I think I'm just going to have to accept that there is going to be some more ad hoc blogging for now, so you'll just have to keep up to date with my life on social media (links to my twitter, Facebook page and instagram are to your right!)...

Anyway, we're in the last month of 2016 (how?!), so it was about time I did a final monthly favourites post to update you all on what I've been loving recently, before the big round up of the year comes along! November has been filled with dancing, a lot of work and a few treats to myself along the way, but here's a quick summary of what's been floating my boat recently...

The Outfit: Autumnal Accessories

I love Autumn, I genuinely think it's my favourite season (I probably say that every year, too)... the colours, the layers and the accessories. I've decided that I'm definitely more of an accessories girl above all else - hand me a good bag, scarf, hat or some gorgeous shoes and I'll be over the moon! What better way to combine two of my favourite things than with a fashion post (another of my favourite things!) focusing on all things accessories, including the most gorgeous bag from Boutique of Molly!

The Bake Off: Savarin

The award for the person with one of the world's most chaotic lives could probably go to me right now... so much so that I've missed out on blogging for WAY TOO LONG. But I'm back with the penultimate Bake Off post in the series (how late am I?!) and this time it was Savarin, a cake made from yeast (I know, weird right?), and despite not having the correct cake tin, it even looked pretty... so read on to find out my take on the recipe!

The Bake Off: Jumbles

How is this week the semi final of The Great British Bake Off? This series has flown by, and with it so have my bake off blog posts... Last week was Tudor week and actually I was looking forward to attempting these Jumbles - whilst normally I want to cry at the thought of a Paul Hollywood technical, this week didn't seem too bad! Here's how I got on...

The Bake Off: Marjolaine

What on Earth is a Marjolaine? I still have no clue, despite making one! After last week's GBBO episode aired, I received a fair few messages from people wishing me good luck with my bake off blog post. I admit that actually I didn't watch the episode until AFTER I attempted to make this, which for future reference is an incredibly crap idea... note to self, don't do that again! This week's challenge not only took up a lot of time, was extremely difficult to do with our rubbish tiny student oven but was also ridiculously expensive - thank god for my student loan as this cost me about £18!! Anyway, enough complaining (pretty sure you can tell where this is going), here's how I got on...

The Bake Off: Fougasse

I have never in my life heard of Fougasse, and having google translated it, I can confirm it translates from French to English as 'Focaccia'. When I saw this technical challenge, I was actually delighted - It's the first one I've done at uni, and I thought to myself "I can do that", I mean, I was kind of correct...

The Current Favourites: September

September was an exciting month all round for me - I changed my hair, went to LFW, did work experience at House of Fraser, baked a lot and even managed to read several books! With these came a whole host of new products to try, some of which have worked their way into my favourite products of the moment, so as well as some old classics, this month's favourites are a round up of celebrating all of the new shiny things!
