a..another blog?!

Hey guys :) Sorry i haven't posted for a few days, not been too well! This post is mainly going to be trying to get followers on my newly founded blog: http://rosiesdreamscomplete.blogspot.com/ that I will be running alongside this one. The 2 blogs are going to be quite different I think, so still check up on both of them! Please do follow if you have blogger :)

Basically, I am writing a list of things that I want to complete ~ and documenting each one that I achieve... They may only be little things eg. paint a picture, go blackberry picking, grow hair.. but the thing to remember is, they're still achievements however big or small they may be.

Anyways, hope you're all okay - have a nice day :) xx

faith, hope, love + peace

"Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all." - Emily Dickinson

'The world belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams' ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

'Peacefulness is an inner sense of calm - it comes from becoming still - in
order to reflect and meditate on our inner wisdom and receive answers. A
peaceful heart is one that is free from worry and trouble. It's becoming quiet
so we can look at things quietly so we can more clearly understand them and
thus come up with creative solutions. It is learning to live in the present.'

"The world always looks brighter from behind a smile."

'To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.' - Anatole France

And to finish this lovely post off, Rumi :)

We are as the flute, and the music in us is from thee;

we are as the mountain and the echo in us is from thee.

We are as pieces of chess engaged in victory and defeat:

our victory and defeat is from thee,

O thou whose qualities are comely!

Who are we, O Thou soul of our souls,

that we should remain in being beside thee?

We and our existences are really non-existence;

thou art the absolute Being which manifests the perishable.

We all are lions, but lions on a banner:

because of the wind they are rushing

onward from moment to moment.

Their onward rush is visible,

and the wind is unseen:

may that which is unseen not fail from us!

Our wind whereby we are moved and our being are of thy gift;

our whole existence is from thy bringing into being.

Eggless chocolate chip cookies

So me being me, gets ready to put all of the ingredients together to make cupcakes..and then i realized that we didn't have any eggs...

So off i went to google ''eggless recipes'' ;) I clicked on the first thing that popped up, studentrecipes.com and it looked pretty legit so I started baking!

This is the recipe that I used;


12oz Self Raising Flour
8oz Soft Margarine
8oz Caster Sugar
2oz Dark Chocolate Drops (or anything else you fancy putting in; smarties, white chocolate drops, raisins etc.)


1 - Mix the ingerdients together in a big bowl, use your hands to knead the dough, it shouldn't be at all crumbly, so add a little more margarine if it is.
2 - Take a small ball of dough, about the size of 1 and a half ping pong balls and squeeze it so it's a circle about 1.5cm thick
(oops didn't read this bit ;) )

3 - Place on a greased tray.
You can make between 16 - 22 cookies, so use 2 trays.
4 - Cook in an oven preheated to 180 degrees for about 15 mins.
(note from me, it actually took longer than this to bake, but i did do them really quite big, as you can/will be able to see from the picture!)
5 - Eat them while they're hot! Taste magic with a glass of milk :)

They smell and look amazing (i haven't taken them out of the oven yet ;) waiting for them to be done!) but mine look like they're going to come out really big ~ both thickness and length wise, man do they look good! (okay i didn't take very flattering photos..but they tasted good!)

'the' dress ;)

Dress ~ Dorothy Perkins
Navy knee high socks ~ h+m

Le dress came in the post ~ not bad for £6.30! :)
I took this in the middle of my rest break at my Great Aunties so my hair was a bit bedheady ;) It was a really really beautifully hot day, so I ditched the socks at one point but it still looked okay I think :) Overall i really like it (apart from the fact when i stand up i looked slightly pregnant paha, but I didn't stand up very much, yay m.e!) and it's good for the nice hot weatherrrr!

I haven't got much else to say but hope you like the new background/layout of the blog de Rosie! And please follow + send link to friends, post on facebook or whatever? Also be sure to check out the post before this for a list of nice blogs :)

Buy me this please?

It's an iPod touch case! It goes really well with my obsession with cameras though, but it's suuuper expensive so might ask for it for Christmas or something ;) We all know how much I hate spending money!

Although, I did buy this yesterday! £7 - down from £40!! I was oh so very impressed! Can't wait for it to arrive, i'll post photos when i've got it...

Big love to you alllll xx

Been so long..

Sorry I haven't posted for so long, i've been swapping and changing between being ill/mopey/down south! Hope my oh so very few readers are all okay!

images from yay!everday

Also, did you know that fire ants make rafts out of themselves...
They all swim along happily ;) And the queen ant sits on the top and acts like a queen ;) When they have eggs and stuff they just do what they would do on land which is pretty cool and some more stuff ;) But then the nasty fishes come to eat them off the bottom and they all die. well not all of them but hey ;)

End of ant takeover, as this ant thing was just to inspire David (http://arkangelus-thescenicroute.blogspot.com/) go visittt his wonderfully amazing blog ;)
