Recipe: A Homemade Caramel Frappé

blender recipes

Now the weather is (finally) starting to heat up, sometimes you want a cold drink instead of a hot. But for a coffee addict like myself, a hot cup of coffee can be too much. So, how about a cold coffee caramel frappé? Sounds good doesn't it? I was scrolling the internet for blender recipes and came across this simple recipe on how to make a Coffee Caramel Frappé. It's literally the quickest recipe ever, I started to ask myself why on earth I didn't do this sooner?! It'll definitely go down with guests, and it feels like a less naughty version of a dessert!  Here's how I made these mouth-watering frappé's..

How To Get Flip-Flop Ready Feet

Superdrug Feet

We all know feet aren't everyone's favourite part of the body. Unless you have a weird foot-fetish, but ya know, each to their own.  I hate, hate getting my feet out as much as the next person. No matter if they're painted and buffed, I still feel self concious about them. But, Summer is finally here and that means getting yo' feet out whether ya like it or not. Don't worry though, I've got some great products from Superdrug* that'll sort out your feet in no time.


My Top 5 Shopping Tips

what to do in liverpool

If you're anything like me, you love a good shopping spree. I much prefer shopping in-store rather than online (shock horror from a Blogger, I know!).  I think it's because recently all the sizes in the shops differ, so when I buy off ASOS 90% of the time I end up returning it anyway! I also much prefer feeling the quality of the clothes, trying them on and just the over all atmosphere of shopping. The only thing I don't like is the crowds, it makes me feel stressed and anxious but I've found a few ways to combat a stressful shopping trip! This recently came up because I wanted to visit Liverpool to visit the British Style Collective, and whilst I was wondering what to do in Liverpool whilst I was up there, I came across Liverpool One. In looks like a massive shopping centre and I got so bloody excited, but my anxiety also kicked in with the crowds. So I started noting ways to get rid of the stress and here's what I came up with kids..


How To Blog From Your Phone

How to blog from your phone

Recently my laptop broke *sobs* and my instant thought was 'how am I gonna blog?!'. Thankfully, I submitted my dissertation 2 weeks ago so I didn't have to worry about that!  Luckily I came across Lauren's blog post on how to blog on a budget,  and her tips inspired me to start blogging from my phone. Who needs a laptop these days?! (Me secretly, I do miss my MacBook).


My Evening At The Botanist, Birmingham

 A few weeks ago me and my Mum were asked to go for a meal at The Botanist. We'd never been before, only for drinks, so I jumped at the chance! When we first walked in, it was busy and had a vibrant atmosphere. I guess that's reflects a great restaurant/venue!  We were then took to our seat, and asked if we wanted drinks and a starter. I never normally do, but as I was reviewing the new menu I thought it was necessary! We ordered our favourite: Camembert.

Immediately, we were impressed with the apple and celery on the side, rather than the usual bread (can you tell we're easily impressed?!). The Camembert itself was amazing, baked perfectly and tasted delicious. The only thing we felt could of been improved was the bread choice. We've never had sliced brown bread with Camembert before, it seemed a buzzard pairing. Where's the crusty loaf at?!


Our cocktails were delicious. My mum went for the strawberry and cucumber breeze and I had the Blackberry and Rosemary fizz. Definitely one of the best cocktails we've ever tried!


We both opted for the hanging kebabs, as that's what The Botanist is famous for apparently! So we thought they must be good. After just one bite, we could see why they were famous for their kebabs. Mum had the lamb and I had the chicken, but they were both equally as delicious. They were served with sweet potato fries (our favourite) so it was a win win for both of us. 



We were so stuffed, but as I said earlier, we were there to review the whole menu, so why not! I opted for the baked cookie dough and my Mum chose the banana split. We tried each others and omg were they good. So good. I have such a sweet tooth so I was considerably impressed. I'd definitely pick the banana split if I was to go again! It literally had everything I love in it, including honey comb.

Overall, we had a great night paired with great food and lovely customer service. The only slip up was they weren't aware I was coming. But, once it was settled at the end they were apologetic! At least I can say the customer service was great as they didn't know I was coming, so they weren't biased in the slightest! If you're in Birmingham (or even if not) I'd definitely recommend a visit to the Botanist, you won't be disappointed!
