This recipe makes around 12-15 big cookies or 35 smaller ones :D

Ingredients:

75 g of Soft butter
100 g of Sugar
50 g of Brown sugar
1 Egg
150 g of Flour
1 tsp of Vanillasugar
½ tsp of Baking Soda
½ tsp of Salt
130 g of Chocolate chips or chopped chocolate (55-65%)

 

How to:

Set your oven to 175°C and get that out of the way while you mix the batter.

Whisk the soft butter and sugar until it’s airy. Put in the brown sugar and the egg, whisk until everything is combined. Mix the flour, salt, baking soda and vanillasugar and pour it into the butter/sugar/egg mix and whisk again till everything is combined. Put in the chocolate and mix until it’s all combined.

Place a teaspoon of the mixture on a baking tray and continue until the tray is filled. Bake in the oven for 7-15 minutes, depending on the size.

My mom is having her breast cancer surgery as we speak. She’s lucky that it got caught in the early stages and she will most likely make a full recovery and still have her breast. Not all women are that lucky and that’s why I’ll be focusing on breast cancer awareness in the month of October aka Pink Month!

It’s important that you check your own breasts, as silly as it sounds it can save your life! Start at an early age, because breast cancer can hit you in an early age although in most cases it accures when the woman is over 50.

While I was in New York I visited a LUSH store and omg! It’s heaven, all the delicious scents and colours. It’s making you want to get it all and the staff is super helpful and sweet. So if you’re ever in NYC, visit the store that’s located near Macy’s and Empire State Bulding!

My lips have a tendency to produce more cells than normal and it gives them a dry, chapped look even though they are baby soft. I went into lush and ask what they thought I could do about the problem and they recommended that I used a lip scrub twice a week for 2-3 minutes. This is supposed to removed the left over cells and dead skin and prevent my lips from looking dry. I was very sceptical at first, but I got to try their Bubblegum lip scrub and it is heavenly! I noticed a difference just my rubbing it into my lips at the store, so I bought one of them.

So far I’ve used it about 6 times, because I had forgotten about it, but I’ve noticed a major difference in my lips. They look more pink and they look super healthy, no dry look anymore and I’m just so happy that all I had to do was use a lip scrub. What makes it even better is that the LUSH lip scrub is so natural that you can lick your lips after exfoliating, so if you’re in a hurry you’d still have time to use it.

I will say that if you dislike overly sweet scents, then go for one of their other scents, because the bubblegum one is VERY sweet.

So today I decided to bake some buns for mom and myself. I hate baking buns, because the dough usually get all over my hands and yuck I hate that, but with this “pre-made” bun stuff the dough isn’t sticky and they taste just as good, if not even better than those you make from scratch!

All you have to do with these “Quickboller” is to mix the luke warm water and flour-mixture together untill you get a smooth and non-sticky texture. Then let is rise/rest for 25 minutes and then put the dough on your table and roll is out. Divide it into 10-12 buns and let rise for 25 minutes. Bake them for around 12 minutes in a 200°C oven and they are done and taste heavenly :D

I do realize this bun mixture is Danish, but I’m sure other countries have something similar.

Last year I had the pleasure of seeing Rihanna live and she is just amazing! Her smile can melt Antarctica and her cheeky grin is just irresistible. I must admit that I have no problem in saying a girl/woman is hot and she is just that – Hot and sexy as hell! Furthermore she is an idol to me and her style and hair is something I envy and would love to re-create :D

And as a little recommendation, listen to her new single “Diamonds” it’s fabulous and VERY catchy!
