EASTER BUNNY BUTT COOKIES


There's only a few days left until Easter, so I wanted to share with you guys, a super cute and easy bunny butt cookies recipe! Oh by the way, is it just more or does the easter edition chocolates taste so much better than regular chocolate bars? Anyone else been enjoy eating Cadbury Mini Eggs and Creme Egg chocolates? (I think it's time to hit the gym again). I also made a YouTube video on making the Bunny Butt Cookies HERE! To make these delicious cookies you will need: 

PREP TIME: 30 MINUTES | COOK TIME: 14 MINUTES | DIFFICULTY: EASY 

COOKIES INGREDIENTS 

+ 250g unsalted butter, softened
+ 1 cup white sugar
+ 1/2 teaspoon salt
+ 1 large egg
+ 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
+ 3 cups plain flour

Step 1: Using an electric mixer with a large bowl, beat butter, sugar and salt on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. Add egg, beating well. Add vanilla. Beat until combined. Reduce speed to low. Add flour, beating until just combined (do not over-mix). Divide dough in half. Shape each dough portion into a disc. Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until firm

Step 2: Remove both disc of dough from fridge. Stand at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes or until soft enough to roll. Roll between 2 sheets baking paper until 3mm thick

Step 3: Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper. Using oval-shaped cutters, cut shapes from dough, re-rolling and cutting any dough scraps. Transfer to prepared trays.

Step 4: Bake for 10 to 14 minutes or until firm and just starting to turn golden around edges, swapping trays halfway during cooking. Stand for 2 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.


DECORATING INGREDIENTS 

+ Mini Marshmallows
+ Betty Crocker, Strawberry Frosting
+ Duncan hines, Vanilla frosting
+ Jelly Belly, Hello Kitty edition
+ Happy Candee, Strawberry

Step 1: Apply any choice of flavour of frosting onto the larger oval cookies. Spread evenly. Repeat the same process with the smaller oval cookies. (HINT! I separated the frosting and left one white and made one pink). (HINT TWO! You can make your own frosting, the store bought frosting help  saved a lot of time).

Step 2: For the bunny feet, place any candy beads/pearls or Jelly belly's. Also place any light pink candy or chocolate on the small oval cookie  for the ‘pads’ of the bunny feet.

Step 3: Place a mini marshmallow in the centre of the bunny butt body for it’s little bunny tail. (HINT THREE! You can also dip the mini marshmallows in some frosting and add some white sprinkles or glitter for a cool dazzle bunny tail).


Happy Easter baking!
 Hope you all have a fantastic Easter break and enjoy eating all the chocolates!

DIY WASHI TAPE GIFT WRAP


Today I have the cutest washi tape gift wrapping inspiration to share with you. 
If you have never heard of Washi Tape, your about to fall in love! Washi tape is like a masking tape, but waaaay cuter. It first originated in Japan and now has become very popular all over the world! 
I bought all these washi tapes at Washi Tape Australia, they have a super cute website and amazing tapes! They sell all different types of tapes, like glitter, foils and heaps of different designs ones too! Did I mention that they ship worldwide too?! Washi tapes are super easy to use, but here are a few of my favourite ideas to inspire you!


Feeling inspired yet? 
All you need is some kraft paper, washi tapes, scissors and of course the gift! I'm not wasting any more money on paper from the store when clearly this is a better option! Not only are the designs great because of the washi tapes but it shows thought and care was put into wrapping the gift. 
I had a great time making all these Washi tape gift wraps, Check out Washi Tape Australia here;


Have you ever heard about Washi tapes before?

THE LUSH HAUL


I always look forward to a trip to Lush, I always end up buying so many goodies! Especially when the Unicorn Horn bubble bar become available to purchase, I had to get my hands on it. I love how the bath bombs and bubble bars make bathing so much more magical! Love coming home after univeristy and going straight to the bath, to have a lush bath. Seeing gorgeous rainbow of colours, swirl in the water with millions of bubbles is my favourite part! Here is a list of what I ended up with;

+ Sea Spray Hair Mist 
+ Ocean Salt Facial Scrub 
+ Dragon's Egg Bath Bomb
+ Tisty Tosty Bath Bomb 
+ Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar
+ Sandstone Soap

I've been loving the ocean salt facial scrub. It has a delightful mix of sea salt, avocado, coconut and lime! If your not used to using scrubs, this might not be for you, due to the chunks are very large and in my option is a bit coarse and rough. The sea spray has always been one of my number one favourite lush products of all times. Love using the hair spray especially in the summer time. The unicorn horn is filled with neroli and lavender essential oils which is really good for relaxation and de- stressing your body. As with all Lush bubble bars, you can crumble it in under running water and then relax and watch the bubbles appear!


Check out my new travel diary video HERE. 

What's your favourite Lush products? What should I try out next?
