LivLoves: September 2012

Guess what!?  It’s OCTOBER!  That means it’s time for favourites!

Music:

So songs are always coming and going for me, but these are the ones that I’m loving currently!  I am liking lots of Alex Goot this month!  This includes Sensitivity, Bright Lights, and his cover with 6 other YouTubers of One More Night by Maroon 5.  This cover was seriously amazing!  Normally covers are totally hit or miss for me, but this one was totally awesome!  Check it out by clicking here!  Another couple of songs (by Taylor Swift of course) that I’ve been loving are Begin Again and Fearless.

 

Nail Polish/Fashion:

For nail polish this month this month I have been loving all dark colours!  I hate waiting, so just at the beginning of the month I started wearing them!  I am going to do a whole post on them very soon (I just need to take pictures!), so stay tuned for specific favourites!  For fashion I am loving my Aldo combat boots and long shirts or sweaters with tights!  I did an outfit of the day (linked here) where I showed all of those things!  I would really recommend checking out H&M if you are looking for some new fall stuff!  Oh, and I can’t forget about my Tiffany & Co. pieces!  You can see them in the link above as well.

 

 

Food:

I know that I just found out the recipe for making ice cream (linked here), but it is still a favourite!  I LOVE it!  Another thing I have been eating are chocolate chip cookies.  AAAMAAHHGAHHH.  They sell these like freshly baked packages at my grocery store and they are so good!  I have also been loving looking at baking stuff for the next few months on Pinterest.  Oh yeah, and I’ve been pinning a lot lately!  Here’s a link to my Pinterest if you were wondering!  I have so many pins on there it’s crazy!

 

That’s it!  I’ve got a lot to do in the next little while!  I’ve got two posts I’m writing right now so expect probably at least one of them up today!  Talk to you soon!  Thanks for reading!

DIY Ice Cream

Hey guys!  So in class today we made ice cream!  Woohoo!  I thought I would share the recipe with you because it was a whole lot easier than I thought!  This recipe makes about a bowl full.  You could easily make multiples of this, or double up the amount of ingredients.  Plus, you can make this about any flavour you can find!

*All of the ingredients are approximate, not exact!

You will need:

A Small Plastic Ziploc bag (standard size)

A Larger Plastic Ziploc bag (like the ones that are the size of a shoebox)

Ice cubes

Salt

Cream (the higher fat content the better!! We used 18%) ;)

About three spoon- fulls of sugar

Flavouring (mint extract, lemon extract, vanilla extract, chocolate sauce, whatever you can find!)

How to:

Fill the small plastic bag with the cream.  Do not fill it all the way!  Just about 1/4 of the way.  Add sugar and flavouring.  Do not put too much flavour in!  Remember extracts are strong!  Now close the bag all the way.  Make sure it is very well sealed.  It is even a good idea to double bag this with the same sized bag, because you don’t want this to mix with the salt and ice!  Now fill the big bag about 1/4 way with ice.  Pour some salt in there (be generous).  Now put the small bag into the big bag, and seal the big bag.  Shake!  You are going to want to shake like a mad man for a while…it is pretty tedious.  Once your ice cream is cold to how you would like (don’t expect it to be solid!), take it out of the big bag and open the small one.  You can dump it into a bowl and enjoy!

I have made ice cream before in school and we crushed up peppermint candy canes in it.  It’s great!  I just tried it again tonight and it’s DELICIOUS.  TRY IT!!  (:

It’s so delicious!  I have only ever tried homemade ice cream with vanilla, but I’m curious to try the mint and chocolate!  Let me know if you try this!

Talk to you soon!
