How to make delicious scones!

Hi chums!

I wanted to share with you a scone recipe today. I love afternoon tea and scones and I love how they are always presented so professionally and cute! For Mother's Day my sister and I decided to bake some scones for my mum using the following recipe and they were YUMMY so I would thoroughly recommend - enjoy!

I also filmed this on my YouTube channel so here is the link to that if you would like to watch it.


250g Self Raising Flour
40g Margarine
125ml Milk
Pinch of Salt
25g Sugar (don't add if making savoury scones)


75g Sultanas/Raisins/Currants (for sweet scones) or 75 g Grated Cheese (for savoury scones)


1. Set the oven to gas 7 or 220C
2. Sieve the flour and salt into the large bowl
3. Rub in the margarine
4. Add the cheese/currants and sugar (optional stage)
5. Make a well and pour in the milk and mix to a fairly soft but not sticky dough
6. Knead lightly then press onto chopping board. The dough should be at least 1cm thick
7. Cut into rounds using a cutter/knife and place on the baking tray
8. Brush with a milk 
9. Bake for 12-15 mins until golden brown

Recommendation: Serve with jam and clotted cream when making sweet scones

I hope you liked this post! I really enjoy doing baking posts so you can expect lots more in the future!




Maybelline Blushed Nudes Review

Hi chums!

Today I wanted to talk to you about the Blushed Nudes eye shadow palette by Maybelline. It has so many pink colours which are perfect for the transition into Spring because they are really fresh and pretty!

I have filmed a tutorial over on my YouTube channel so if you want to go and check that out here is the link and I will put the video down below.

There are so many different looks you can create with this one palette because there are 12 colours. I've had a lot of fun trying out different looks with this and have been really impressed with the quality of the eyeshadows.

It's such an affordable palette so I would really recommend it. I will leave the link here but you can find it in Boots/Superdrug stores if your from the UK or Walmart/CVS stores if you're in the US.

I also wanted to show you the make up I did with it. I kept it super natural and pink.

What I used:

Benefit Browzings Kit

Benefit Porefessional
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
Max Factor 2000 Calorie Dramatic Volume Mascara
Max Factor Creme Puff Blush (05 Lovely Pink)
Collection Speedy Highlighter

Thank you for reading this post!
