Manicure-ruining Brownies

Red velvet cupcakes are awesome.  They are, without doubt, in my top 5 of favorite sweet things (my Mum's banana bread, chocolate brownies and choc chip cookies would be 4, think the last one changes depending on the day, but this is beside the point).  Since I pinned a red velvet brownie recipe, I figured it was about time that I actually made it.

Also because I have a tendency to pin things and not actually make them.  Is that just me?

Red velvet brownies =)

These.  Are.  Amazingly.  Delicious.  Unlike the cupcakes, which, in my opinion require the cream cheese frosting to add deliciousness, these brownies are perfect without frosting.  The outside of these are just that little bit crunchy, too.  I don't feel bad about eating another one while writing this post, at all.

So.  Good.

To explain the title, I'd painted my nails right before I started baking.  Turns out, that was a terrible idea.  However, a ruined manicure because of these brownies is totally worth it.

Red Velvet Brownie!

Until next time (by the next post I'm going to safely assume that there will not be any brownies left),

PS: I got the recipe here

23 before 23: 6 month update!

Back in August I posted about 23 things that I wanted to achieve before I hit 23 next year (read about it here). Since we're at the 6 month mark, I thought an update was in store!

Writing this post and reading over my list I'm realising how much I've got to achieve - school holidays now, time to get busy! So far I've achieved...

12. Spend a day at the beach
Check! Was a gorgeous day and both myself and my boyfriend came back without being completely roasted. Considering how pale we both are, that was a surprise.

19. Find a signature makeup look
It only occurred to me the other day that I'd done this - I <3 my winged liner and bright lip.

20. Read 2 "classic" novels
Done and done!
Clearly I've gotten lazy with my book reviewing, haha. I've since read The Great Gatsby, Little Women and am currently marathoning my way through Anna Karenina.

I've noticed it just seems like I'm not a Jane Austen fan but have enjoyed all of the others that I've re…

Pichu Cross Stitch

My first cross stitch creation, created with KG-Chart LE.  It's a Pichu (from Pokemon), and I'm hoping to continue with this Pokemon theme through other cross stitches.  If I get around to this, I'll post a picture when I'm done =)
