It's the season for hot chocolates and I absolutely love experimenting with new flavours, here we have a super festive nutmeg flavoured hot chocolate topped with cream and chocolate sprinkles. If you're  craving a hot chocolate on a cold winter's evening, then be sure to give this a go and let me know in the comments below your favourite festive drink to make.

Ingredients:
- 4 cups of milk
- 1/2 cup of Cocoa Powder

In a medium saucepan start to heat up the milk, then simply combine all of the ingredients into the same pan and stir well to combine. Heat the hot chocolate for around 4-5 minutes and then pour it into your favourite mug. I love to top all of my hot chocolates with some delicious whipped cream.

Daniel Wellington are one of my all time favourite watch brands. Here we have the Classic Petite Melrose watch with a 32mm face. I love the design of the Classic Petite Melrose Watch, it has a rose gold mesh strap along with a lovely white watch face. The quality of the watch is exceptional and you can really see the time and thought that has been put into making the Daniel Wellington watches. I absolutely love the Melrose watch the rose gold and white detailing compliment each other perfectly, the white watch face is very danity, feminine and very elegant. The Mesh strap is beautifully crafted and is super soft and lightweight on the wrist. It is made from stainless steel and is available in both silver and rose gold, with a white or black dial featuring a case size of 32mm. The 32mm is the perfect in between size from the smaller and larger watches already available in the DW range. The Classic Petite Melrose watch is classic, elegant and very sophisticated. The rose gold mesh strap truly does give the watch that elegant and classy look and I'm super excited to style this up with some outfits.

Autumn Ginger & Cinnamon Bread

With Autumn in full swing I've really been enjoying baking and finding new recipes that are simple and quick. There's something so comforting about homemade bread weather it's savoury or sweet nothing beats tucking into some freshly homemade bread, warm from the oven. Autumn bread is an ultra moist fall treat that not only tastes amazing it leaves your house smelling absolutely divine. I made these delicious ginger and cinnamon loafs and thought I would share the recipe and outcome of my first time baking bread. This particular recipe is super easy to make and you'll want to make it over and over again.
I N G R E D I E N T S
400g Strong Brown Bread Flour
7g Sachet Dried Yeast 
1½ Tsp Salt
1 Tbsp Soft Butter
1 Tsp Ginger 
1 Tsp Cinnamon

M E T H O D
- Mix the strong bread flour, ginger, cinnamon and one sachet of yeast into a large mixing bowl. Add in the butter and mix the ingredients together. Then go ahead and add in 300ml of warm water and mix together to form a dough.
- Place the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead it for around 8-10 minutes until it feels smooth and elastic. Once the dough is kneaded enough place it into a loaf tin with baking parchment. Allow the dough to sit for around 1 hour, this allows the dough to rise and once it's ready it will feel light and springy on top. 
- Place the bread tin into the oven at around 220C and bake for around 30-45 minutes or until golden brown.
What's your favourite treat's to bake in Autumn?

A Super Sweet Autumn Treat

One of my favourite Autumn treats are toffee apples and with Halloween in a few days it's time to make your own! There's something so comforting about apples covered in sticky toffee topped with chocolate or nuts, they taste divine and only take around 15 minutes to make. I'm not at all an expert on making these but I thought I would share with you the recipe and how mine ended up turning out! I love to top my toffee apples with mixed nuts, this makes them even more delicious. Be sure to let me know in the comments below a few of your favourite Autumn treats!
I N G R E D I E N T S
8 Apples
400g Golden Caster Sugar
1 Tsp Vinegar
4 Tbsp Golden Syrup
M E T H O D
Place all of the apples into a large bowl and pour boiling water until covered, this helps remove the waxy coating on the apples which means the caramel will stick easier. Ensure all of the apples are dry and that a wooden skewer or stick has been placed into the stalk, then lay out a sheet of baking paper and place the apples on top. Next up is to make the toffee, pour the sugar into a pan along with 100ml of water (medium heat), you should cook this for 5 minutes until the sugar has dissolved, then stir in the vinegar and syrup. To test if your toffee is ready pour a little into a bowl of cold water if it hardens instantly then you know it's ready. Covering the apples in toffee can be a little tricky and you have to work rater fast or your toffee will start to harden. Dip each apple in to the toffee and place it back onto the baking paper. Toffee apples are such a fun Autumn treat and taste so much better than shop bought ones. You can add any toppings which makes it even more fun, I went for mixed nuts and they tasted divine!!

The Antipodes Apostle Skin Brightening Serum is a water based corrective serum to help target pigmentation, brighten your skin and restore an even tone.

It also support skin renewal and radiance helping to leave the skin with an even refreshing glowing look. It contains ingredients such as Vinanza Oxifend which helps to prevent skin cells from becoming stressed to reduce redness. The Waiwera mineral water restores and maintains maximum hydration without making skin heavy, while it's antioxidant rich Vinanza Performance Plus is released to prevent melanin production that causes pigmentation. 

I tend to use the Antipodes Apostle Skin Brightening Serum in my night time routine, I will simply apply from my face down to my neck after cleansing. I will then apply the Antipodes moisturiser for extra hydration. The Antipodes Apostle Skin Brightening Serum is perfect for this time of the year, it leaves my skin feeling super hydrated and soft to touch. I love that it gives my skin a boosting glow and is 100% natural.
