Sunday Post: Easy Homemade Starbucks Inspired White Chocolate and Peppermint Latte

Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a great weekend. I do love my favourite Festive Starbucks drinks, but not all of us girls can always treat ourselves these festive drinks. Especially if your on a budget and trying to save money for other things, such as buying christmas presents, food and party outfits. So I decided to share with you all a little something you can make for yourself that can save you alot of money from having to stop at starbucks every time you walk past it. Starbucks have been serving their White Chocolate and peppermint Mocha for a few years now. I'm not a fan of Mochas because they are too strong for me, so I decided to make my own, which is a little more creamier and less strong. But if your into strong coffee than you can change it a little to suit your taste. So to find out how I made this easy, quick Starbucks inspired White Chocolate and Peppermint latte, then continue reading! And I hope this inspired you all and do let me know on my instagram @Nivii06 if you decided to re-create this drink! would love to know if you did! Let me know if you also love their Festive drinks as much as I do, and which one is your favourite!?

got this pack of candy canes from WHSmith for only 99p!! I am sure you can get it at any grocery store.

Half of a Candy Cane
Lindor Lindt White Chocolate
Hot Milk

1) Firstly, (you all probably already know this step) turn on the kettle. While the water is boiling add a teaspoon of your favourite coffee into your mug.

2) While you are still waiting for the water to boil, squash the Lindor White Chocolate (as shown in the picture) so that it can melt easily and also break a candy cane in half. If you like you can use more than half. And then break that half into smaller chunks.

3) Once the water has boiled, fill half of the mug with the water and stir. Straight away chuck in the squashed White chocolate and stir. Once the chocolate has melted, throw in the candy cane peices and keep stiring while the water is still hot so that it can melt away.

4) Once everything has melted add your preferred amount of hot milk. I usually heat the milk in the microwave because I don't add too much milk.

5) This step is optional, if you don't like your Starbucks drink with cream, than you can leave this step out and enjoy your drink! But I like it with cream so I added a fair amount (or alot) of whipped cream which you can get at any supermarket in the dessert section.

And Vwalla! You can sit back and enjoy your quick and easy homemade Starbucks Coffee!!

Nails: Midnight Sparkles

Hello everyone and here is another one of my 'nail of the day' posts. I just experimented with these two nail polishes and to be honest I had no idea how the end result would look like. I think I failed a little with this look but I still decided to share it with you all because we all know everyone has their own opinions. I may not like it as much, but it may inspire some of you girls. So here is my failed attempt of 'midnight sparkles'. But I promise, my next Nail post will be a lot more better than this one.

Firstly, I applied two coats of Barry M 'Persian' from their Limited Edition Aquarium collection. And then on the tips of each nail, I dabbed Barry M 'Rockstar' from their glitter collection. And slowly without adding more product, I brought some of the glitter product lower to give the 'glitter ombre' effect. So instead of painting the glitter, I dabbed it, which gives more control and lets me apply the right amount of glitter I need. And then finally topped it off with a clear top coat. And Vwalla!!

Party Picks

We all know that this is the season where we love to dress up and PartAY! And I know searching for the perfect outfit for the party is always a hassle and even worse when the perfect dress that you've spotted in store is unfortunately not available in your size. I have faced this problems many times which is why you should never buy your outfit last minute and start looking now! Now is the perfect time because All stores are selling party wear. So I thought I would help you girls by showing you my favourites from a handful of highstreet and online stores. I've picked a variety because I know not all girls are a fan of wearing dresses. Let know know your favourite and if you would like me to do more 'Party' related posts, then feel free to leave a comment down below or on my instagram @Nivii06. I am thinking of doing Part 2 of this post as there are a lot to choose from on the highstreet and online stores. Let me know if I should?! Thank you for reading and I hope this post helped you all!

Outfit: Wintery Whites and Faux Fur

Hi everyone! I hope you are all having a great week! This outfit was inspired by one of the TOWIE stars, but unfortunately I didn't save a picture of the outfit and I don't really know the name of the star as I don't really watch TOWIE as often. There is probably no need in having to mention that I was inspired if I forgot to save the image. But I've learnt my lesson and will try not to make the same mistake next time. I do get inspired by a lot of celebs so if you would like me to produce an outfit inspired by any celebs then feel free to email me the picture and I'll try to put an outfit together that would hopefully look similar and also using affordable items. I did cheat a little with this look and borrowed my sister's MK bag But hey, there's nothing wrong with sharing, right?! So I hope this outfit inspired you all, let me know what you think? Would love to know!

What I'm Wearing
