Apple Pie inspired Panini🍏

Hey guys!!!

I know I’ve been kind of MIA recently, I just got really busy with school and I apologise for not letting you guys know. Anyway I’M BAAACK and today I’ve decided to share one of my quick and easy snacks I make when I’m craving something sweet. 
I actually got my inspiration for this snack from Pinterest {my Pinterest is tagged in the sidebar}, I’ve tweaked the recipe and I must say it’s really quick and easy to make and is super scrumptious as well… so let’s get right into it!! 


Ingredients: ( makes 4 sandwiches )

Sugar {2 tbsps} 

Cinnamon {1 tbsp} 

Bread {8 slices} 

Butter {4 tbsps} 

Mascarpone or Cream cheese {1/2 cup} 

1 Green apple ( or Granny Smith apple ) 
How to: 

Slice your apple as thin as you can 

Mix the cinnamon and sugar in a bowl 

Coat your apple slices in the mixture

Spread the mascarpone on one side of your bread ( optional sprinkle some of the cinnamon sugar on the mascarpone ) 


Place your apple slices on the mascarpone 

Spread butter on the outer side of your sandwich and place it into your panini maker. 



Wait until your sandwich is gold brown and serve with vanilla ice cream 🙂 

See you guys in my next post

My winter favourites 

Hey guys, my favourite season is around the corner so I decided to share a few of my favourite pieces with you all 🙂 

1. A bomber jacket I mean no one can go wrong with a good bomber jacket, this one is super padded and warm plus I love the flower details on the sleeves ( major trend ). This beautiful cropped bomber jacket is from Cottonon

2. Leather mini skirt
I think that this is just a cute piece for a night out ( paired with tights of course ). I tend to wear a lot of dark colours in winter, so this piece just adds some colour to my outfits. This skirt is from Zara

    3. An oversized denim jacket Everyone needs a denim jacket, that’s all that I’m going to say. This jacket is snatched from my mums closet 🙂 
    4. Ankle boots Ankle boots are just so cute and are comfortable. These bad boys are from Forever 21
    5. A leather jacket Every girl should have a leather/ faux leather jacket in their closet, they make an outfit look more polished and adds a little edge to your look. This one is from Zara

    Thanks for checking out this post, obviously I have way more winter favourites ( the list goes on ) but I just decided to share a few. Don’t forget to check out my social media ( tagged in the sidebar ). see you later 

    Product review: BIELENDA PROFESSIONAL


    Hey Guys,

    I was recently gifted this package of Bielenda beauty cosmetics, it has been about 3 weeks now so I’ve decided to share my opinion with you.

    Bielenda Kosmetyki Naturalne is a Polish beauty company that was established in 1990 by Barbara Bielenda ( to find out more check out their website )

    The 3 products which I received were from the FACE PROGRAM. 

    1.  THE ANTI-BACTERIAL MAKE-UP REMOVAL GEL FACE WASH
      This product is really great. It cleans the excess makeup that is left on my face even after I’ve used my regular makeup remover. I have naturally oily skin, this product has helped reduce this and I’ve noticed that my face is less shiny. Rate: 8.5/10

     

    2. SOOTHING FACE MASK

    Like the previous product this product has reduced the oily shine of my skin. I have been using this mask twice a week for the past three weeks and I must say that it is slowly reducing my acne/how often I get acne. Rate: 8/10

     

    3. ACTIVE SEBO-REGULATING MOISTURIZING CREAM

    I am not very satisfied with this moisturizer, it leaves my face feeling dry and I find that i often have to mix it with another moisturizer. Regardless, it does do it’s job of reducing acne. Rate: 4/10

     

    Thanks for taking the time to read this review, these products are certainly lovely and all have a captivating aroma. I will definitely order more Bielenda products in the near future. Don’t forget to follow me on my other social media ( link in the sidebar) for more regular updates and just to see more of me.

      I love this product, I use it EVERY SINGLE DAY it works wonders and removes all of your makeup without leaving your skin feeling dry.
    2. Distraction ~ love swept
      This perfume is very floral and basically smells like summer it’s from Woolworths’ Distraction line
    3. Vanilla lip balm by Poetry
      This is a Shea butter lip balm, which keeps your lips moisturised for long however it’s kind of hard, but it’s worth it. Also it smells amazing!!

      February Favourites🌹: hair edition 

      Hey guys… I know that I’ve been kind of M.I.A for the past 2+ weeks, this has been due to the weather lately: it has been rainy and I wanted to share my hair straightening technique with you but you know moisture/humidity & natural hair (straightened don’t mix). I still would like to share that with you but until the weather gets its act together I’ve decided to share my ultimate favourite hair products with you… Let’s get to it!!

      1. Aunt Jackie’s – curl mane-tenance 
        This is my ultimate favourite hair product… I use it everyday for everything from daily moisturizing to when I do a twist-out or a braid-out. This product: apart from smelling amazing, keeps your hair moisturized and can be used to enhance your curls. It’s an 11 out of 10 for me 😀
           Available at Clicks                                     
      2. Mixed Chicks : shampoo 
        I love this product because: 1. It is made for my hair. 2. It smells amazing. 3. It does its job and leaves my hair feeling soft and clean. What more do you want from a shampoo.
      3. L’Oréal Elvive: conditioner
        Ok I’m constantly switching up my conditioner but this has always been my favourite. I use it twice a week and sometimes for my deep conditioning. It lasts long and smells amazing and leaves my hair feeling amazing.
            Available at any supermarket or pharmacy 
      4. Mixed Chicks: deep conditioner
        This product locks in the moisture, makes my curls & hair feel and look amazing and smells great. What more should a deep conditioner do.
                           Bought-online: www.mixedchicks.net

        These are my ultimate favourite hair products at the moment, I hope that I’ve inspired some of your to go out and try them for yourselves. 

        Pink-neutral makeup look 

        So I drew some eyes and put the makeup look on them ( yes I used real makeup in my sketchbook ), because I have the flu and my eyes are puffy. I promise that the next makeup look that I do will be seen on me xxx
        Hey guys 

        So today I’m going to share a simple pink-brown makeup look {as seen in the drawing above}

        Tools & products:

        Beauty Treats essential makeup palette

        The colours used (1 & 3 in the crease) (2 &3 used on the lid)

        Bobbi Brown blender brush

        Bobbi Brown ultra precise eye liner brush

        Method: 

        1. I use my primer or concealer to prime my eyelids
        2. I mix number 1 & 3 from my palette and put this in my crease ( occasionally add a warmer brown or gold ) 
        3. Use my concealer on my lids tho create the “cut crease” look. 
        4. Mix colours 2 & 3 and put this on my lid ( if I want a more pink look I mix colour 1 in sometimes I add a golden colour) 
        5. Liner liner liner 
        6. Done.
