Hope you all had a lovely weekend – HAPPY MONDAY!

I have so much to share with you but I’ll start by sharing a recipe of the yummy cupcakes I made on the weekend. (Everyone said they tasted amazing)

You will need:

Cupcake Mix:

  • Cupcake Mix
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 a Cup of Milk
  • 3 Tablespoons of Butter

Icing Mix:

  • Icing Mix
  • 3 Tablespoons of Butter
  • 2 Teaspoons of Milk

Let’s do it:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degress – And, place 12 patty cases on a oven friendly tray.
  2. Place cupcake mix, eggs, milk, butter into a large bowl – Mix this so that there is no more powdery mixture & is a smooth consistency.
  3. Carefully place mixture into the 12 patty cases (Fill to about a half as the mixture will expand in the oven & you don’t want them to overflow.
  4. Bake for 20-25 mins, depending on how fast your oven is, check on these at about the 20 min mark.
  5. Once these are cooked, let these cool down whilst you prep your icing.
  6. Mix 3 tablespoons of butter & 2 teaspoons w/ your icing mix & mix this up until smooth & lather over your cupcakes (I didn’t do all my cupcakes with the icing, a few of the bad overflowy ones got the icing but didn’t make the cut for the photo, haha)
  7. And…. Enjoy 🙂

I promote healthy living & good foods but this was a packet mix I couldn’t refuse to make.

Baking is very therapeutic for me, you feel accomplished after also bc you’ve created this from scratched.

You’ve watched it grow & you feel great once its done.

I would love to know what is therapeutic for you 🙂 🙂 

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤

Lies Your Anxiety Constantly Tells You About Yourself

Lies Your Anxiety Constantly Tells You About YourselfHello loves, ❤

I don’t know about you but my anxiety LOVES to play mind games with me & this truly KILLS me! It’s so hard to think of yourself one way when your anxiety wants to you to believe the complete opposite, let me know if you experience any of the below:

1. That you’re unsafe.

Anxiety wants you to know that you are never safe no matter where you are. It wants you to believe that you are in danger at all times, and there’s no safe haven available for you.

2. That your panic attack isn’t just a panic attack.

Anxiety makes you believe that your panic attack is something that is much worse that what it actually is. It makes you think you are having a heart attack, a stroke, and that you are going to die. Anxiety shows you no mercy.

3. That you should shut yourself off from the world.

Anxiety doesn’t want you to feel fulfilled in your life. It doesn’t want you to be happy or mentally stable either, and tells you that you shouldn’t waste anyone’s precious time. Anxiety tells you that you should probably cancel those plans, because there’s no point in disappointing people (again).

4. That you are weak.

Anxiety loves to tell you that you are weak and pathetic. It likes to whisper to you every night and day that you should just stop trying, because you aren’t worth it in the first place. Anxiety makes you think that you are small and that you’re a burden to your loved ones.

5. That you don’t deserve love.

Anxiety tells you that you should just cancel the date before you make an awkward mess of yourself. Anxiety tells you that you don’t deserve love, because how could someone like type of shit show person that you are?

6. That you aren’t good enough.

Anxiety tells you that your best is terrible. It makes you want to tear yourself apart every time you make a tiny mistake, and makes you pay for what you did. Anxiety has no sympathy for your failures or lessons learned.

7. That you’re going to mess up everything good thing that you have in your life.

Anxiety frequently tells you that you’re going to ruin everything good in your life. If you’re in a loving relationship, anxiety tells you that you’re going to mess it up. If you finally got the job of your dreams, anxiety tells you to quit before you fuck up.

8. That you won’t ever get better.

Anxiety hammers into your head every day that it’s not going anywhere. It tells you that you’ll have anxiety forever and you’re a lost cause. Anxiety wants you to believe that it owns you, and that it controls everything that you do.

9. That you’re better off spending time alone.

Anxiety adores shutting down your social calendar and making you think that you don’t deserve great friendships. Anxiety is skilled at convincing you to flake all the time, even if it’s with people who you care deeply for.

10. That no one likes you, and that they are all just pretending.

Anxiety tells you that even your best friends hate you. It plagues your minds with paranoid thoughts that everyone is just pretending and they only hang out with you because they feel sorry for you.

11. That you are less of a beautiful human being because of your anxiety.

Anxiety loves to tell you that you aren’t enough. It tells you that you aren’t beautiful, or smart enough, to get the success that you want. It likes to shower you with self-hatred and self-doubt consistently throughout your day.

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤
