Shoesday Tuesday - Sophia Webster, her divinely Girly Aesthetic and her banana Pool Slides...?

I've done a profile on Sophia Webster before: Amazing Shoe designer and former colleague at Nicholas Kirkwood as assistant designer (!!).


From her first collection back in 2013 - These Puppies have been seen
in many a street style snap - Anna Della Russo owns a pair!

Some pieces from her latest collection:
Amanda
Flamingo T-bar
Rosa - Old school jelly shoes!! OMG

Debut Collection on Boy Meets Fashion

 Loving the pink

NOT completely convinced with the Banana pool-slides though.
Not sure they're even acceptable by the pool #bluergh.

Are you guys a fan of Sophia?
Her shoes are so fun, they really appeal to the girly aesthete in me,
though they are a tad on the 'spency side.

Happy Shoesday Everyone.

Sunday Baking - Foodgasm Fudge brownie..... COOKIES, for when you want something a little more portable/single serving

These are REDDICK! My BF asked me to make brownies but I am SICK of the same old recipe so thought I would try making a brownie cookie...
then just sort of went mental and threw anything in there.

Result: the most moist, fudgy, chocolatey, gooey, foodgasm cookies you may ever EAT


Big statement but I'm very confident. 



Ingredients:                                                     
175gms Butter                                                    100gms Dark chocolate, melted                  
100gms White caster sugar                               60gms Cocoa Powder
110gms Brown sugar                                         170gms flour
1 egg                                                                    1t Baking Powder
1t Vanilla                                                            120gms dark choc, chopped

Method:
Cream butter and sugars until pale. Beat in egg then vanilla. Stir through melted chocolate. Sift dry ingredients together twice to really incorporate the cocoa powder through the flour. Fold into the butter mixture. Fold through the chopped chocolate.
Drop tablespoons of mixture onto parchment lined baking trays and bake in a preheated oven for 10 mins.  They will be setting up on the outside but still squidgy in the middle - this is good. The cocoa powder helps the cookie bake faster and overbaking will mean a bitter result.
LEAVE them on their trays for half an hour then use a spatula to transfer them to a cooking rack. They are very fragile while fresh and hot but over a few days will crisp up... IF they last that long.



These are SUPER FUDGY on the inside and the chocolate never quite sets... in other words

#FOODGASM

I REALLY hope you guys try this recipe - it really is super yum and not at all sweet.

Happy Sunday baking all

I went shopping yesterday to get an outfit for dinner and clubbing.
Ended up buying a purse, shoes and a necklace... and wore none of it out!
