    SLUTTY BROWNIES

    One of the first bloggers who inspired me to start my own was the gorgeous Rose of The Londoner and her post on the aptly named SluttyBrownies has haunted me everyday since I discovered them a several months ago. I’d lusted after them for months - i’d daydreamed about them, I’d spoken about them, holding them in such great regard but I’d never actually made them... until this weekend. One of my best friends is running the London Marathon and to raise some last minute donations, she decided to hold a charity bake sale. I saw this as my perfect opportunity and set about recreating these slutty little masterpieces!


    The recipe itself is insanely simple, any novice (eg me) can follow it. All you need is:
    1 pack of brownie mix, 1 pack of cookie dough, 2 packs of oreos and eggs.
      Slutty Brownies

    Firstly preheat your oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with grease proof paper – I used a medium sized square tin which made approx 16 brownies.

    So first step is to simply follow the instructions on the cookie mix box until you have gooey cookie dough, Rosie suggests keeping the mixture moist as you'll be baking it for longer than suggested. Once you’ve got a nice gooey cookie dough, ‘squidge’ the dough into your lined baking tray until it covers the bottoms...I put a bit tooo much water in my dough so it was quick hard work slopping the cookie paste into the tray, but you get the general idea!

    Next, my favourite step, is to cover this layer with your Oreos. I used a mixture of double stuffed and regular Oreos and followed Rosie’s strict instruction to eat the broken oreos as you go....

    Now it’s time for the top brownie later. Again, simply follow the instruction on the back of the pack and then pour over your oreos.

    Slutty Brownies  Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.

    Foolishly, I decided to keep mine in the oven for slightly longer than 30 minutes. DO NOT DO THIS! Not that it ruins the recipe or anything, but if you want a nice crunchy top with a gooey centre, then 30 minutes is more than enough. My little brownies were just slightly overcooked so they were no longer gooey....but they were delicious none the less!



    Anyone going to try out the recipe?

    ZARA SHOE HAUL

    i rarely ever buy myself shoes or accessories so today i  decided to treat myself to some new shoes for spring/summer. zara is one of my favourite shops but i always find their prices to be  a bit iffy - in terms of sometimes things are reasonably priced and others can be extortionate! Both the shoes i found where  a real bargain and i know i will get plenty of wear out of them both! 

    the first pair i bought were these black studded sandals. i loved them as soon as i walked into the shop! i especially like the chunky buckle on the ankle, and the leopard print is a really nice addition. At only £39.99 i HAD to have them! The second pair are gorgeous coral coloured wedges. They're extremely comfortable and I thought they would look gorgeous with jeans or with a nice summer dress - again I was really impressed with the price, only £29.99 so popped them in my shopping bag - fingers crossed the weather will pick up a bit so that i can finally wear my new shoes!
