I Was Inspired

Do you ever watch a show and just feel completely inspired?? Recently I’ve noticed a rise in black history shows on television and felt like doing a little post 🙂 even though you learn and ‘study’ history at school you’re never really taught the truth, which is quite sad when you think about it because how do you know where you came from? Watching Back in Time for Brixton was a real eye opener because it gave me a real understanding of what my grandparents endured when they came to this country. Not to stay stuck in the past, I really do appreciate everything they did which now allows me to live the way I do today. The UK isn’t 100% united in terms of race and probably never will be but things have certainly improved!!

Finally, do some research into your own history and see what you find out because it’s good to know where you came from ❤

Actually Enjoy Your Life!!

I keep finding myself guessing what the week ahead of me will be like rather than just enjoying my life and being present in each moment. It’s a shame because I often use a lot of my energy trying to predict how the future days will plan out rather than being content and present in life. Sometimes I worry about the unknown which is really pointless because ultimately I can’t control the future.

Basically I just feel we should all just relax more and take each day as they come rather than thinking too far ahead, just a bit of advise we can all utilise.

When I Tried to Make a Swiss Role #Fail

So I thought it would be really easy but I was surprised with my turnout. I’m not sure if it was not whisked enough or may be too much and the mixture was kind of stiff, then after I took it from the oven the cake wasn’t moist or soft enough to role at ease without it cracking along the sides. 

Baking is so much fun and it is all about trial and error so if it doesn’t turn out amazing the first time try again until you get it right or are at least proud of what you have made/done. This kind of applies to any situation in life basically never give up and keep trying. 

I will definitely try to bake a swiss roll again but I think I’ll use a different recipe 🙂 Happy Baking!! 

I used the recipe from http://www.deliciousmagazine.co.uk/recipes/swiss-roll/

This #fail won’t make it to my Instagram: angelicaa_b ❤

6 Free Things to do this Summer

Now that the summer holidays are finally here (for most of us) here are a few activities to enjoy. Even though any people will be off on their holidays, working hard or visiting family don’t forget;

1. Have a clear out: you have probably accumulated so much rubbish the past months that a clear out is in order, throw away those old papers, magazines, make up and clothes that you are no longer using.

2. Read a book: literally any book that will make you smile, laugh or cry. Relax whilst you do and enjoy the time.

3. Meditate: even when you’ve got a lot going on just set aside at least 5 minutes every day to do some meditation and connect with the inner you.

4. Talk to people: conversing online doesn’t count 😛 make the effort to meet up with your siblings or old/new friends and have real good meaningful conversation.

5. Set some goals: they can literally be anything even if you don’t achieve them all just complete that one goal to improve your life or help you grow.

6. Watch interesting documentaries: it’s so easy to get caught up in all the random videos on YouTube but take a step back and try to watch something that can inspire or educate you.

Don’t let yourself be bored this summer make the most of it, there are so many more things to include, if you’ve got anymore ideas….comment below
