Byeeeeeeeeeee!

Hiiiiiiiii!

How’s your Monday going? And how was your weekend? Today I’m going to be doing a review, one that I’ve planned to do for agggggees but haven’t actually done it! I’m reviewing the Girl Online Trilogy (Girl Online, Girl Online: On Tour and Girl Online: Going Solo) by Zoe Sugg (more commonly known as Zoella).

So here are the books! I have them all in hardback, however paperback versions are now available. I like the designs, they reflect Zoe’s style but they also remind me a lot of Penny, the protagonist of the novels, which I guess is the point! I quite like the plot, it raises awareness of mental health and offers advice on young love. I think that the trilogy is nice. The third book has a good ending which makes me think that it doesn’t NEED a fourth. She’s not writing one anyway, I don’t think, I like that she’s left it at that! Overall, I think this a good little trilogy of book and suitable for a large age range, although not being sexist here, but I’m going to take a wild guess and assume the target reader is female, but of course if you’re male you can read it too! Yes, these are good books with a nice semi-relate able story line and yeah, I like it!

RATING: 5/5 Stars! (I recommend these to anyone who enjoys a lighthearted read)

If you’re interested you can purchase the books using the links here:

GIRL ONLINE (Book One)- AMAZON

GIRL ONLINE: ON TOUR (Book Two)- AMAZON

GIRL ONLINE: GOING SOLO (Book Three)- AMAZON

I hope you enjoyed my little review! There’ll be a new post on Friday too….. and I can give you a clue as to what it’s about, it’s about Music! Can you guess?

It’s the last week of school before half term now yay!

See You Friday!

*DISCLAIMER* Again I’m not being paid etc. to promote these, I think Zoe has enough influence herself if I’m being honest. So yep this is my genuine opinion and this post doesn’t contain affiliate links!

Heyy!

So today is Friday (the 13th, OOOOOOOOOO) and that means that there is a new post! Yay! I decided to do a recipe as I haven’t done one in a while! As you probably guessed from the title, yep, I’m doing a scone recipe! Here we go:

SCONE RECIPE

Ingredients:

  • 220g Self Raising Flour
  • 55g Butter
  • 25g Caster Sugar
  • 150ml Milk
  • 1 Egg (to glaze)
  • Roughly 70g Sultanas (Optional!)

Method:

Step One: Firstly preheat your oven to 220C/Gas Mark 4 and lightly grease a baking tray.

I used grease-proof paper

Step Two: Next weigh out and mix together the flour and the salt. Then rub in the butter.

Salt and Flour

Added Butter

Rubbed in butter

Step Three: Now, stir in the sugar, then the milk, to form a nice soft dough. Add any sultanas etc. if you wish now.

Milk

Sultanas

Step Four: Next, place onto a floured surface and kneed lightly. Pat out to about 2cm thick. Use a round cookie cutter to cut out the shapes.

Step Five: Beat an egg in a separate cup or bowl and lightly glaze the scones using a pastry brush. Place in the over for about 12-15 minutes.

Step Six: Leave to cool slightly and then enjoy! Served nicely with Jam and Clotted Cream (or butter)

So yeahhh, that was today’s post. I hope you enjoyed it! You can print the post if you wish to use it, or I think you can pin it on Pinterest somehow! Don’t forget to come back on Monday for another post!

See you Mondayyyyyyyyyyyyy!

Heyyyyyyyyy!

I’ve got a review post for you today, and it’s something I’ve never done before. It’s a Treatbox review!!

Treatbox is monthly lifestyle subscription box available in the UK, however I have just got a one off one to see what it is all about! I think it’s quite cute, so I decided to do a review of it on here!

So, this is what I received in the post… And then I opened it….

When I first opened it, I found a cute calendar card! Inside the card, it tell you all the information about the products in the box. On the tissue paper there’s this cute bear sticker! I stuck it to the inside of my psychology book!

This was my first look inside the box! It was packaged quite neatly, a bit like a jigsaw!

The first thing I looked at was this print designed by Treatbox. I love it! It’s so autumnal! Every month, Treatbox put a different print inside their boxes. I’m really glad I was able to get this one. I have stuck it on the wall above my desk and in fact I can see it as I write this!

Next there were these super cute greeting cards! Perfect for reminding your friends they’re great!

This month’s home product from treatbox is a hoop with a quote in it! It says ‘You are Loved’! I think I will put this on my wall so that I can be reminded of that.

Then there was this super cute animal sticker sheet! These will definitely end up on my books and folders!

This is one of my favourite things in the box! Fairy Lights from Lisa Angel! I think they’re very autumnal! I have put the lights into a jar I found because I think that it will look really cool. Unfortunately the dodgy batteries I had only lasted long enough for me to take these photos, but I will find more batteries and I’ll take a photo of the jar and I will put it on INSTAGRAM so be sure to look out for that!

Now something edible! I have to say, this was demolished very quickly after this photo was taken and it was very caramel-y!

Then there were these nice tealights! I love Vanilla scent so these are great! I just need to get a candle holder thing so I can use them! There were four scents I could have got: Wildberry, Lavender, Fresh Linen and Vanilla.

Lastly I got a 10% off voucher for lisaangel.co.uk!

Treatboxes are available online at www.treatboxuk.com and it’s £12.98 for a one off box (like I got) or £12 a month for the subscription! You can also build your own boxes for you or your friends!

RATING: 5/5 Stars (Super Cute!)

I think I’ll need to get another one of these in the future!

*DISCLAIMER* This is my genuine opinion, I’m not being paid to say good things or advertise Treatbox. This is just something I have decided to review

Don’t forget….. New post on Monday!! Oh, and sorry the photos have been a bit iffy recently, I need to sit down and take some properly.

See Yahhhhhhh!
