New In: Jewellery by Kukee

Hi guuuys!

Here are some new pieces I recently bought from Kukee. I'm a very big fan of Kukee, as I mentioned in my previous jewellery haul. They sell lovely jewellery at amazing prices. They were having a sale over Christmas so I thought I'd see what they had and I managed to buy some pieces that I'd had my eye on for a while at a discounted price! I even got another above the knuckle ring for free - which is great because I lost one of mine :(

 Hamsa Palm necklace - £2.50
I wanted to do some research on the Hamsa Palm before I bought it, because I had see it around but didn't know what it meant. I found that it's used as protection against the evil eye - a look that is believed to cause injury or bad luck for the person it is directed at.
 Skull ring in Silver - £1
Spike earrings - £1

Recipe: Buttermilk pancakes

Hello guys!

This morning I was hungry for some pancakes so I decided to make a batch. I wanted to try something so, as the title says, I made buttermilk pancakes. My recipe is made up of a mix of different recipes that I've found on the internet. They were really easy to make and they tasted AMAZING!

Serves 4

150g plain flour
200ml buttermilk
50g melted butter
3 tablespoons sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking powder
A pinch of salt

1. Mix the flour, sugar, salt and baking powder in a bowl.
2. Then add the egg, buttermilk and butter and mix to a smooth batter.
3. Lightly grease a frying pan with butter and add some batter to the centre of the pan, spreading gently. Cook for a couple of minutes, until lightly brown on each side.
4. Serve with maple syrup, or whatever tickles your fancy :)

Let me know if you give them a try! xo

eBay False Eyelashes

Happy New Year everyone!

Better late than never, ay? :) I hope you all had lovely New Years celebrations. I'm so thankful to be here and I can't wait to see what 2013 has to offer!

Today I want to share with you some false eyelashes I purchased from eBay a little over a month ago.
Personally, these are the perfect eyelashes; they are exactly what I am looking for. I don't wear falsies very often, but when I do, I do not want it to look like my eyelids are trying to fly away. These are not too long or flamboyant but add a very subtle, sultry cat-eye look. I know the change is not dramatic but that is what I love, a very natural almost-impossible-to-tell-you're-wearing-fake-eyelashes look :)

In one box, I got 10 pairs for £1.41 with free postage (I actually bought two packs, so I got 20 for £2.82). They are sold by a UK seller wholesale2worldwide (style 122) and delivery took roughly 5 days.
