screen-shot-2017-01-09-at-22-46-49 …Ms Tracee Ellis Ross. She did it!

The first black woman in 33 years, to win Best Actress in a TV series Comedy!
(And she was wearing Zuhair Murad- my favourite!)

From the days of Girlfriends, I have enjoyed watching this woman and over the last year I have also become a Black-ish fan. I have followed it through each season, episode after episode; so to find out Ross had not only been nominated but won a Golden Globe is great – and to be the first black woman in over 30 years to win such an award is phenomenal! Congratulations Tracee (Joan/Bow)!

Beautiful, full of character and forever wearing a killer grin, Ms Ross is quite literally WINNING!

If you haven’t already tuned in, do catch up! #Blackish

Breakfast at Tiffany's

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

A break in between my studies and a failed attempt to unfreeze my gym membership, I had a craving for oreo cake. mmm.

I’d never made it before but thought id give it a try. I’m glad I did, because I don’t mean to blow my own trumpet, but it was bludy amazing.

Pretty good for a first try and a made up recipe; if you ask me. I didn’t really know how to go about it, so as you do, I relied on trusty old Google. However, all i got was recipes that use ‘devils food cake’ mix, IN A BOX, (I mean what happened to eggs, flour, sugar and butter?) or I got regular cake recipes that just had a dollop of Oreo frosting on the top. I was not having that! So I just made a chocolate cake, added my crumbled oreos and melted chocolate and popped it in the oven. Admittedly  it came out looking like a massive cookie, but once I whipped together the best oreo frosting; from creme cheese, double cream, icing sugar, butter and of course Oreos, It was good to go! Well to be honest, only after I decorated it with yet again even more oreos (mini ones this time), then it was well and truly ready to GO! Cut me a slice (or two) and had it for breaky, whilst watching “Breakfast at Tiffany’s! #perfect
