London Day 1 & 2

On June 13th, my grandma and I took an overnight flight to London, England! Having felt anxious for the 7 hour flight, we made it around 6 am London time and as soon as I got there, I felt refreshed. The airport even had cute coffee shops that I would see in vlogs. FYI they offered me a drink on the flight, I am 18 so it is considered legal in England, but I opted for tea.

After an insane drive and a 2 hour nap, we had tea planned at the restaurant in our hotel. To my surprise, it was one of those fancy hotels, because I am so used to Holiday Inns that I never knew what it was like to stay at a very fancy hotel. This hotel is thanks to the tour company that we used, Tauck, and they treated us like royalty.

It was rather weird being an American and viewing England’s very proper attitude and that such being a customer they literally treated like I was the Queen, only I can wish. The food is so different that I ate about 3 cucumber and cream cheese sandwich slices, I am at least trying. I got the Hibiscus Tea which was not too strong or bitter for my liking so I quite enjoyed it. I especially loved the centerpieces, especially the flowers and I have also learned that I am not a big fan of jelly. The dress I wore to tea if from Free People.

Our hotel was in the Marble Arch neighborhood so we decided to find it and we did not realize how close we were to Hyde Park! So our effort to stay awake was to walk walk around the city so we, I mean I, came with the idea to go to Madame Tussaud’s . I had to see the Zalfie wax figures of course! I texted my mom the picture and she actually thought that I had met them, sadly I did not ūüė¶ .

We headed back for the hotel so my grandma fell asleep while I watched the people from out hotel window. Other than having a cereal bar for dinner, I really enjoyed the first night in London because it was so magical to me.

DAY 2

The second day started bright and early because we had to catch a bus to head to Harry Potter Studios of course! I am a huge Harry Potter fan and a movie fan so going there was a complete dream! I might move to England to work for a film company, but that is just an idea for now.

Here are the few of many photos I took and I highly suggest going even if you are not a Harry Potter fan, it was so cool to see how everything was created. I even rode a broom in the green screen room which I am not to sure if I am allowed to upload but if I am, it will possibly be up on a vlog. Ravenclaw for life!

After we left, we took a walk through Hyde Park and towards Harrods, legit the biggest place I have ever seen. Instead of buying anything, we ended having the most delicious ice cream in the cutest shop that gave me an idea to having my own ice cream shop.

Just look how yummy the ice cream looks! I do not really count my steps, but in total we walked 7 miles, gotta keep up my summer bod!

Starbucks Refreshers Strawberry Lemonade

I have been searching far and wide for the perfect summer drink to use my little “Mason Jar”, I really do not know how to call it because it is not the popular Mason Jar. I recently took a trip to Target and discovered these Starbucks Refreshers Strawberry Lemonade. I personally did not like it at first, but the trick is to just put half of less in, instead of the whole packet!

Easter Fun 2014

Hey everyone! I am hoping that you will or have an amazing Easter! Remember it is the day to remember Jesus dying for our sins and saving us and Resurrected on the third day! If you are not religious then I guess you do not have to worry about that! I always have fun with Easter as I love candy and the colors and recently started having a love for bunnies! So as my neighborhood had an Easter egg hunt, so many adorable kids, I was making little cake pops which I was inspired by Bethany Mota! I will leave a link to the video to make them here. Or I can give you the recipe below!

059

  • Cake Batter
  • Peeps
  • White Icing
  • Food Dye
  • Treat Pops holder

060
So start by baking the cake like you normally should, my cake did not come out as well as I hoped, last year did not work out either but we manage to deal with it.

061
While the cake is baking, yes cut off the heads of the peeps. You can always eat the butts though.
062
Put food coloring into the icing and stir until you get the color that you want. I went with blue, and red food dye along with mixing both to make the most wonderful purple color.
063 064 001
As soon as you cake is done, put some cake inside the treat pop container and put icing in. Keep adding cake until you are ready to put on the bunny peep head!
004
Here is my ending result!

I will  be posting my outfit soon as I was hoping to put a video together! I will see you soon!

LUSH Product Review

I have been wanting this lip scrub from LUSH for a while now and I haven’t found it until today when me and a few of my friends went shopping at the mall!

My friend Jordan (whereismytonyaward.wordpress.com) has like a little of obsession with the store, he has bought way too many of their products so I decided to try one!

Before I had gotten it, I had read the reviews on the website which were mixed so I tried it out myself. I don’t exactly know what a scrub is but this product is used to scrub off the dead skin upon your lips before using any lipstick or lip gloss. There is no water to this unless you consider your saliva because all you need to wash it off is to lick your lips clean. My lips feel nice afterwards and there is a nice bubble gum taste in your mouth. I find the surface of the scrub a little bit grainy like sand or hard candy but thank God it is not hard on my lips!

All these pictures are my own!

Recipe: Hot Cocoa Pudding Mugs

download

Disclaimer: Found this Jello ad on YouTube, I don’t own anything.

I have found this ad while on Youtube and I’m like why not, I have nothing else to do today so yeah. P.S. there is a reduced sugar version but I don’t think that will be as yummy as I want.

Materials:

  • 2-1/2 cups milk divided
  • 2 packets of KNOX Unflavored Jello (1/4 oz each)
  • 2 oz of melted BAKER’s Bittersweet Chocolate
  • 1 package of JELL-O Chocolate¬†Instant¬†Pudding (3.9 oz)
  • 12 miniature pretzel twists, broken to make little cup holders
  • 1-1/2 thawed COOL WHIP whipped toppings (yummy ūüôā
  • 1/4 cup JET-PUFFED Vanilla Mallow Bits (even more yummy)

Directions:

  1. Add 1 and 1/2 cups of milk to dry Jello in small saucepan; then stir. Let sit for 3 minutes for it to become soft. Cook and stir on medium hear 3 minutes so it will dissolve. Remove it from the heat source and add the chocolate in while stirring it. Also cool it 5 more minutes.
  2. Beat pudding and milk in a medium bowl with whisk for 2 minutes. Add in JELLO and whisk it in. Separate in into shot cups that have already been spreaded with pan spray to come out nicely after 3 hours of refrigerate.
  3. Tap the little chocolate out of cups and placing them on a plate. Add a pretzel that has been broken to the side of each chocolate cup to similar to a mug. Add COOL WHIP to the top of each and add little marshmallows for the finishing touch.

I might not have¬†explained¬†it as well as they can so go to kraftbrands and hopefully you’ll find other yummy recipes! Hope your Christmas was fun!

Disclaimer: Again I don’t own anything, not even the picture

Hot Chocolate

So today, hurricane Sandy is currently going pass over my house (thank God I still have power). Also today is also a good day for some hot cocoa.

You’re probably thinking there might be 1 way to make hot chocolate but you are wrong. Today I recently introduced my youngest brother on a different way to make hot cocoa and myself on how to make it extra chocolately. So bare with me because there are a few different ways to make this horrible weather drink.

Materials:
Cup
Milk
A pack from a Milk Chocolate/Marshmallows box

One way: Use milk instead of water (my brother pretty much thanked me the whole day to introducing him this way, FYI he is 13 and doesn’t even like milk).

Extra chocolate. Just do what you normally do to make hot chocolate and pour the chocolate in. Something that shocked me was that the marshmallow package also came with the cocoa, so pour that in. Stir and stir until most of the chocolate has  dissolved in the milk, which take some time (maybe about 5-10 minutes) and leave some little bits of chocolate floating on the surface.

This will be very chocolately for people who love love LOVE lots of chocolate because I felt like it was too much for me. Be safe during the storm! And be excited since there is no school!
