Thoughtful Thursday - Latest Fashion Trend

Hey Internet Friends,
Today I thought I'd discuss my opinions on one of the latest fashion trends. After browsing through shops (online as well as in store) and looking on fashion websites, there was one trend that really caught my eye; the off the shoulder trend.

One of the things I love about this trend is how summery it is! You can flash a bit of skin without feeling uncomfortable or going too over the top. All the tops and dresses look so cute, with many in summery patterns and colours.

Another thing I love is that there are so many styles of tops and dresses that are off the shoulder. This means there are so many occasions you can wear this style. From days at the beach to fancy meals out, it's so easy to dress this style up or down depending on the occasion.

Finally, it is so simple to follow this style as these items of clothing are so easy and affordable to buy. From highstreet stores to designer brnads, there's something to suit everyone.

What do you guys think of this trend? Let me know on social media (links on the contact me page) or comment on this post.

Shortbread Recipe

Hey Internet Friends,
Today I thought I'd share with you one of my favourite recipes, shortbread! So simple but so delicious.

Ingredients:
- 250g plain flour
- 75g caster sugar
- 175 g butter

Method:
1) Heat oven to 160 degrees C and grease a baking tray.
2) Mix flour and sugar in a bowl and rub in the butter.
3) Knead well to form a smooth paste.
4) Take small sections and roll into lots of small balls.
5) Place the balls of dough onto the tray and push down on top of each one with the base of the prongs to create 4 lines going across.
6) Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes.

Hope you enjoy trying this out!

Love and Hugs,

Thoughtful Thursday - Supernatural beings

Hey Internet Friends,
Supernatural beings; are they real or aren't they? No one really knows for sure so here's what I think.

First of all, I don't believe things like vampires, werewolves and zombies etc. exists. To me they all seem to just be fictional creations for books and films to help add excitement.

On the other hand however, I'm not sure whether ghosts exist or not. If they do, I highly doubt they are like how they're portrayed in films. I guess in a way I believe they are likely to be invisible to us who are alive. It's quite a nice thought that after we die our soul lives on and can watch over our loved ones. I'm not religious so have no religious beliefs on this topic which could be why I'm more susceptible to believing in certain types of supernatural beings.

What do you guys think? Have you ever experienced anything that has convinced you supernatural beings exist? I would love to hear about them!

Summer

Hey internet friends,
So, the time has come and it's finally summer! I thought I'd share with you some of the basic things to help make your summer brilliant. Whether you're going away or staying at home, all these things will be perfect for your summer.

Clothes
One of my must have summer items is a playsuit; playsuit a are so easy to wear and can be bought anywhere in a variety of colours patterns and styles. Match up with a cute cardigan and comfy canvas shoes for the perfect summer look. Another thing I love to wear in summer is a maxi dress. These are perfect when the weather is slightly cooler as they keep your legs covered. They look ever so stylish and are again available in all kinds of colours and patterns.

Accessories
Something we all need in summer is sunglasses. My favourite type are round ones as they look cute with all sorts of boho outfits as well as some more punk style outfits. They suit so many people and are so easy to match with all outfits. Another summertime accessory you could buy is a flower crown if you are feeling particularly hippie.

Other
I always love to buy books for summer. It's so nice to sit out in the garden or on the beach and just relax reading a book. Getting books can be done very cheaply if you purchase them from a charity shop. It won't break the bank but also helps out others, bonus!

What do you guys like to buy during summer? What are your must haves? Let me know through social media or by commenting on a post.
