Why you should journal

4/5 of my journals 🙂

hey everyboddyyyyy

this is my first proper blog post of the new year and it is about something that I think you should start doing.

JOURNALING.

(this post is gonna be kinda long but KEEP READING, it’s worth it, honestly)

No, not like a bullet journal. a book where you write all your life secrets, to put it plainly.

Ok so I’m 99% every single person has started a journal / diary (lol I really hate calling it a diary and I don’t know why but it physically hurts me) as a kid and then either quit in a few weeks or continued writing forever. I think I’m the only person I know who continued writing 😔BUT it was so worth it.

My story with journaling is that when I was like 9-10 I used to read Dork Diaries a lot and decided that I wanted to write one too so I wrote random entries about absolutely nothing in this pink notebook. I cringe reading it now because at the start I used to write and sign off just like the girl in the book did and that’s so grosss because that isn’t how I write and thinkkkkkk. Anyways, at first my main motivation to write was Dork Diaries but eventually I genuinely started enjoying writing so yeah I’ve been doing it for 5 years ✌🏽

You’re probably thinking why should you start a journal when it’s so boring and you’re just writing about your life. I have a few good reasons for that which I can tell you from personal experience. First of all, you can write anything in the world in there; literally the most random thing that makes no sense and is so pointless or something that is the most important thing to you because nobody else is gonna read it. There’s some things you think about that you just wouldn’t tell people cause you have no reason to and instead of forgetting that thought you can write it down. Dude I’ve literally rambled on for pages talking about me and my friends hanging out and about songs I like. Yeah I actually wrote 3 pages about an album. It was a great experience though. There’s no rules for how to write or what you should/shouldn’t write about, you just do things how you want to.

Secondly, you can get stuff out that is bothering you. This is like the first point but also not. You can write down what your feeling to understand it better and it doesn’t even matter if it makes any sense because you just want to get it out of your system. Then when you’re done and feeling fine you can just rip out those pages and throw them away and pretend it never happened.

And finally (probably the best part?? maybe?? not really but kinda) it’s so fun to read back on those entries in a couple of years. Like for me I find it so funny to see what things were the most important to me when I was 11 and how I used to think at the time. Plus I’ve written down so many small things that meant a lot to me that I would have otherwise forgotten. Reading your old journals is the weirdest but most interesting experience ever.

Maybe those three main points inspired you? Hopefully they did. If not here are some more ideas that make journaling more fun:

  • you can make it a whole special thing. like just set aside a special time where you can write about little things that made you happy in the day and light some candles and drink some tea…
  • listen to your favourite music while writing! or listen to anything you want honestly. sometimes I like to listen to this fireplace crackling thingy because it sounds so cozy and gets me more relaxed.
  • incorporate your favourite things into the journal. if you’re into art, make some random collages and doodles. if you like music, every entry you can talk about a song you’ve been loving lately and what’s so special about it. if you like photography, stick in pictures everywhere. I could go on listing things but I think you got the idea 😂

Ifff you made it this far, you first deserve a round of applause *cue the applause*, and you most likely might be into the idea..? a bit? YES. YOU ARE. That’s good, I’m really proud of you.

The worst thing is you might like journaling but have no clue what to write about so here are a couple little prompts to ✨spark the inspiration✨(they aren’t very good I’m sorry, I don’t ever really use prompts)

  • small things that make you happy
  • things you love about yourself
  • your favourite songs and why
  • your biggest dreams and goals
  • something that hurt you that you want to forget about
  • letter to your future/ past
  • letter to somebody that you won’t actually send them

aaand that’s all I have but I really hope you try keeping a journal!

If you read this to the end I appreciate you very much. Talk to me if you have a journal or your considering starting one, I love reading your comments ❤️

Love, Hreem xx

Goodbye 2020 😌✨

(I know this pic is completely irrelevant lol but it’s the only nice one I can find. Think of the road as symbolism for the year ahead )

hello everybodyyyyy

it is the end of 2020??? whattt???

this year has obviously been absolutely crazy for everyone and I highly doubt anybody will forget it lol.

so this post is basically me looking back on the good things that have happened instead of the *very obvious* bad stuff … yeah that’s really it. I barely took any pictures because firstly, there wasn’t a ton of exciting moments and secondly, I forgot 😋.

SO let’s begin listing the good things:

  •  I got to spend lots of time doing things I love because we had to stay home.
  • I hung out with my friends back in Feb and it was so much funnn.
  • I think I grew a bit as a person?? Like I feel like I’ve changed to become more like how I want to be.
  • A bunch of singers I love released new music and I also found new artists I like heheh.
  • International day: the last big gathering lol and I had so much fun with my friends.
  • I started a bunch of things that I’d always been too nervous to do!
  • Created my YouTube channel ☺️

Aaaand that’s all haha sorry. My mind literally went blank when I was thinking of these.

To anybody who feels weird like they haven’t accomplished anything today and has seen other people’s posts on all the great things that have happened: it’s okay!! 2020 was honestly a hard year and the fact that you were strong enough to go through it is great.

If you made it to the end of my post thank you so so much for reading and have a happy new year!! I hope the next one is much better for you.

Let me know some good things that happened to you this year💛 let’s start off the new year wellll 😊

Love, Hreem xx

evermore album!!!!

Taylor Swift 'Evermore' Album Review | SPIN

hey guyssss!

I hope you’re all doing great and enjoying the start of the holidays (if they’ve started for you yet).

I am aware that I’m here with another Taylor Swift album review just around 4 months after the last one but IT’S NOT MY FAULT! I blame Taylor for releasing another amazing album so fast.

Lol the only thing I’m upset about is that I was planning to talk about Little Mix’s album ‘Confetti’ and I already wrote most of the post but then came evermore and I just … I couldn’t not. If you guys wouldn’t mind/would be interested in a post about Confetti do let me know cause I really love that album, it’s in my top 5 of the albums released this year.

So yeah, onto evermore.

Taylor decided to once again drop a surprise album less than 5 months after the last one (folklore). evermore and folklore are sister albums so the sound is almost the same and the songs are still written as if you’re telling a story. But evermore sounds a bit more mature to me and the production sounds a lot more magical while folklore sounded more melancholy. The topics of the songs are really interesting too, like a rejected proposal, a murder mystery and a song about her grandmother.

It’s just such a good album and ohmygosh the lyrics, the lyricssss. The lyrics are heaven sent and that’s all I can say. Plus the fact that this album was made in around 4 months??? and it’s a masterpiece??

Now here are my top 5 lyrics and my current ranking of the songs. Super hard to decide by the way.

✨✨✨

You had a speech, you’re speechless. Loved slipped beyond your reaches. And I couldn’t give a reason. – champagne problems

I don’t like that falling feels like flying till the bone crush. – gold rush (I HAVE BEEN OBSESSED WITH THIS LYRIC SINCE THE SECOND I HEARD IT, incase you were wondering ☺️)

I know my love should be celebrated but you tolerate it AND I made you my temple, my mural, my sky. Now I’m begging for footnotes in the story of your life. – tolerate it

Don’t treat me like some situation that needs to be handled. I’m fine with my spite and my tears and my beers and my candles. – closure

                                                                          ✨✨✨

Tadaaa.

Finally, here is my ranking of the songs which has changed *so much* since my first listen.

gold rush
champagne problems
no body, no crime
tolerate it
long story short
closure
’tis the damn season
dorothea
willow
marjorie
ivy
happiness
evermore
coney island
cowboy like me

Now actually tada lol. There it is.

I hope you enjoyed this post and if you made it this far you deserve a round of applause *cue the applause*.

Have you listened to evermore? What are your thoughts and which songs do you like or dislike? Do comment because I’d love to chat!

Love, Hreem xx

3 Year Blogiversary!

heyyyyy

My child is three years old!! (obviously I’m talking about my blog in case you didn’t get that lols)

quick shoutout to the Hreem that created this blog ☺️ 2017 me lol

That’s so wild omg. I remember starting this blog and just having no clue what anything was gonna be or how to write a post or what to even write about. I mainly just wanted to be like Penny from Girl Online not gonna lie. And then when my friends found out I made a blog I think at least 3 of them made their own but didn’t last very long. I’m kinda proud of myself for still being here even if my schedule isn’t very consistent 😂

It’s also so intriguing how if you read my old posts and now my newer ones you can see how much I’ve changed and how my writing style has changed, I’m pretty sure it has got better, at least I hope.

I’m debating whether to include like a paragraph from my first post and just like react to it. But I think I’ve done that before lol. Okayy so I’m going to react to parts of my first post ever yayyy.

Yikes, this is going to be painful, oh gosh. Please remember I was 12 when I started and I’m now 15. Wait that’s actually really cool now that I think about it heheh. Anways, here:

“My name is Hreem, buuuut you can call me… yeah, Hreem will be fine. I’m just your average school-girl who loves food and messsing up at makeup.”

I’m 90% sure I copied that “you can call me Hreem” bit from my friend’s blog because she was more interesting than me 😔 Also why did I think the perfect introduction for myself would be “average school-girl who loves food and messing up at makeup”? Makeup was literally the thing I focused the least on at the time, I don’t know what I was trying to do there honestly.

I have a LOT of hobbies. Or maybe they’re less, who knows? But in my case I think the hobbies I have are enough, take a peek and tell me what you think:

• Singing 🎤

• Guitar 🎶

• Reading 📖

• Writing 📝

• Taking Pictures 📸

• Eating 🍩 (can that be a hobby?)

Now that I look at them, I realize… they’re not too many are they? Sorry I’m talking so much about boring stuff right now but I’ll make sure my next few are a bit more exciting 🤗 (Jazz handsss!)

In just this short excerpt from my post I asked three questions. THREE. Why? hah there’s another one. My hobbies are I think exactly the same since then which is kind of comforting in a way? ohmygosh do I actually ask so many questions in every blog post, I’m suddenly very aware of it. Although eating isn’t really a hobby anymore, I don’t snack as much as I used to woohooo *cue the applause*.

I love my little jazz handsss thing at the end lol, that’s my actual personality shining through rather than me trying to be really cool. aww.

Oooh! I almost forgot, I’m pretty sure your bored to death because I haven’t mentioned what my blog will be about. 

There’s nothing interesting about this part, I just wanted to say that I used ‘your’ instead of ‘you’re’ 😭😭 I’m quite ashamed.

HAhah also the ‘Ooh! I almost forgot’ reminds me of this video and now I can’t stop laughingggg oh gosh.

And that concludes my lovely 3 year blogiversary post. I hope you guys enjoyed as much as I did.

Thank you so much to everybody who has ever read one of my blog posts or followed my blog or liked and commented 💖 You guys make blogging so much more fun and your comments really make my day!!

Lots of love, Hreem xx

My Favourite Things Tag

my favourite things tag

hey guys!

I hope you’re all happy and doing well!

I’m so sorry I didn’t post in over a month but school started and stuff so I got busy and then I was so sure that I posted something but then checked back to realise that I didn’t so that really was disappointing.

Anywayyyss, about a month ago the super amazing Jasmin kinda tagged me to do the ‘my favourite things tag’ and it’s pretty cool so I’m excited ☺️

Rules:

Thank and link back to the person’s blog who tagged you!
Thank you so much Jasmin for tagging me! Tags are always super fun to read so I’m happy I get to do one.

Thank and link back to the person’s blog who started the tag!
Thank you to Beth for creating this very cute tag! It’s such a cool idea

Write about eight of your favorite things in your post!

Add at least 2 pictures or gifs in your post that is related to your favorite things.

Tag eight people at least! (If you don’t know eight blogs to tag just tag as many as you can)

Put the eight rules in your blog post!

Include the picture above for the beginning of your post!

Have fun!!!

*disclaimer: most of these pictures do not belong to me*

1. Music

music

I think by now basically everyone knows that I love music with my whole heartttt 💖 . Listening to music, playing it, making it, all of it is just so magical ahh. It is one of the most amazing things ever and you can go ahead and fight me on that heh.

2. Friends and Family

Hanging out and talking  to family and friends is so much fun too. The best thing is when you all laugh so hard that you can’t breathe or talk and anything anyone does just makes it more funny. Even when we started online school, me and my friends have zoomed many times and literally even watched a movie together on video call. It took ages to set up but it was fun anyways sooo.

3. Autumn

autumn

It’s nearly autumnnnnn ahhhhhh. Apparently autumn *officially* starts on September 22 this year so that’s on Tuesday yay. It’s in my opinion the best season because it’s so cosy and not too hot but not too cold. I’m probably going to write a whole post about autumn soon so be ready for that.

4. Pretty Things

pretty things

This is the weirdest thing on my list because it really makes no sense. I just love like pretty necklaces, places, people, dresses??? You deserve a round of applause if you understand me because I made no effort to explain it.

5. Taking Photos

I always take a bunch of pictures and videos when I’m with my friends or family and then they’re like “Hreem stop taking so many pictures”. But then the same people beg me to send all the stuff to them a couple months later. Really love that. I also have a really cool polaroid camera (not the instax ones, the polaroid originals ones that are bigger and look kinda similar to the old cameras) and it’s such a rush taking one of those and then waiting for it to develop. It’s just been lying around for the past 6 months because of the lack of cool things happening 😦

6. Baking & Cooking

Me and my mom always bake stuff like cupcakes and cookies and stuff which do turn out weird sometimes but majority of the time they’re so goood. I also like to cook and help my mom make stuff but I’m not as skilled at it so I do it a bit less. Basically anything involving food is perfect.

7. Flowers

flowers

Flowers are so pretttyyyy. So I guess this should technically count as pretty things but I wanted to make a different point for it because like … flowers dude. We don’t actually have a wide range of flowers growing wehre I live because it’s way too hot so I have to settle for pictures of flowers instead. It’s ok, pinterest is close enough.

and finally…

8. Reading & Writing

reading
readingonastar.wordpress.com

I’ve always loved reading stuff like books and poems but right now I don’t really have any new books to read which sucks. Comment any suggestions if you have! I also love writing things like my journal and (you’d never guess this) my blog! My three year blog-iversary is in like two months, wow.

So those are a few of my favourite things!
I hope you sang that to the tune of the song in your head. If not, what are you even doing? This was actually super fun so thank you Jasminnn!

I don’t think I can nominate 8 people to do this but I’ll see how many I can haha:

Aaand that’s all for today.

I really hope you enjoyed my post almost as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Comment what some of your favourite things are and what things we have in common, it makes me so happy 😊

Love, Hreem xx

(p.s. It’d be awesome if you could check out my covers )

 

Who Knows Me Better feat. Maia & Simmy

(sorry maia for the not-so-flattering pics)

hey guyyys!

Hope you’re all safe and happy and physically distancing as much as you can!!

I can’t believe we’re already halfway through July, this happened waayyyyy too fast and I just don’t approve of it, I really don’t.

Anywayss, this post is kinda like a conpetition between two of my friends, Maia and Simran (you might know them from my wrap-up post 🙂 to see who knows me better. I chose them two because I feel like they know me basically the same amount so neither of them really have much of an advantage.

We did all of this on a video call #justquarantinetings and it was actually a lot of fun so I hope you enjoy reading this too!

 What are 3 items I always carry with me?

Maia: phone, hair tie, lip balm
Simmy: lip balm, phone, earphones, mask (lol an extra point for mask cause I didn’t think of it)
My answerphone, lip balm, hair tie, earphones

What toppings do I have on my pizza?

(they really struggled with this for some reason which I found hilarious)
Maia: olives, mushrooms, peppers, onions
Simmy: olives, capsicums, mushrooms, onions
My answer: olives, mushrooms, capsicums, onions and TOMATOES. They literally couldn’t get tomatoes even after I gave them hints and after Maia went through everything in her fridge she still didn’t get tomatoes. Maybe I’m just the weird one for having tomatoes on pizza.

What’s my dream job?

Maia: a popstar
Simmy: a singer
My answer: a singer. They know me so well *wipes tear*

If the whole world was listening to me at one go what would I say?

(point goes to the answer I like better)
Maia: “Follow my blog and insta, get me Taylor Swift’s number, #swiftiesforlife and I love you Taylor.”
Simmy: “Taylor Swift You Belong With Me.”
I choose: Maia. They really exaggerated how much I like Taylor, I seem like I would probably stalk her but trust me I’m normal(-ish).

What are my favourite scents and/or a perfume that I like?

Maia: warm vanilla sugar, peppermint swirl, frosted coconut snowball, lavender, rose.
Simmy: warm & cozy, a thousand years, lavender, orchid, mint.
My answer: vanilla, lemon, lavender, all the perfumes were right except for a thousand years, I’ve literally never worn that.

What are my top 3 ice cream flavours?

Maia: cookies & cream, strawberry, brownies.
Simmy: love potion, rainbow sherbet, mango.
My answer: love potion, mint chocolate chip and rainbow sherbet. I guess Simmy would know this more because I’ve never really gone to have ice cream with Maia.

What is my biggest fear?

Maia: being alone
Simmy: being alone
My Answer: being alone. So yeah they clearly already know that and I love how they both answered it in the exact same way lol that really made me laugh for some reason.

If I could only listen to 3 Taylor Swift albums for the rest of my life what would they be?

(I was honestly hoping for one of them to say “hahah that’s a trick question you can’t just choose three” but unfortunately that didn’t happen. *wipes another tear. out of sadness this time* So I had to overcome my indecisiveness and pick 3 because I know (correction, HOPE) a situation will never arise where I’m only left with 3 of her albums. Ok let’s move on)
Maia: Lover, 1989, Speak Now
Simmy: Lover, reputation, Fearless
My Answer: IT WAS SO HARD FOR ME TO PICKKKKK. but in the end I went with Lover, reputation and Fearless because they have the most different sounds. *I’m so sorry Speak Now, 1989, Red and Debut, I really feel bad*.

If I’m on Netflix right now, what show am I watching?

Maia: Fuller House, Friends and Gilmore Girls.
Simmy: Friends, Jane the Virgin and Fuller House.
My Answer: Friends, Jane the Virgin and Brooklyn Nine Nineeeee. Can’t believe they forgot that. Also idk why Maia said Gilmore Girls, I literally stopped watching that like 2 years ago lol.

finallyy….

What is my favourite inside joke of ours? (haha none of you will understand this sorry ’bout that)

Maia: Rackets, Simmy is irrelevant, ook.
Simmy: all of them, they’re all too funny (couldn’t she have said something along those lines for the albums???) ok fine rackets.
My Answer: It was hard to pick but I went with rackets, ook and knocked up (don’t even ask).

So the winner of this was …. drumroll please …. Simmmyyyy with 20 points. Maia had 19 points which wasn’t that far behind so I’m quite proud of both of them.

If you made it until the end of the post I salute you and thank you very much for doing that. Comment down below about what your answers would be to some of these questions, if we have any answers in common or literally anything else! I really love reading your comments so don’t forget to leave one 😉

Love, Hreem xx

(p.s. please check out my covers it would mean the world 💖)

My Favourite Characters

hey everybodyyyy

Thursday was my last day of MIDDLE SCHOOL

Wow that’s the weirdest thing ever. I definitely do not think I look or act like a high school girl yet. Hopefully I glow up a little bit before school restarts.

I was actually kinda sad about school ending because I really liked a lot of my teachers and my classes and everything and also because I didn’t really get to spend as much time with them. I was just getting to the point where I started to enjoy school but I guess it wasn’t meant to be lol. I’m most mad that we missed spirit week dude, I love spirit week.

Anywaaayysss.

I thought it would be a fun idea to make a post about some of my favourite movie/tv show/book characters and how I relate to them or what we have in common so yeah here it is!

*After writing this post I realised that they are all female characters and I apologise for that*

rachel, phoebe and monica

Firstly we have Monica, Phoebe and Rachel. Truly an iconic trio. They are all funny and have interesting personalities (especially Phoebe) and I really love Monica and Rachel’s style. I mean their outfits are basically always on point. I relate to Rachel because she’s sensitive and cries for little things and so do I (hate to admit it but … oh well). For Monica I guess we both like things to be organised (but I’m a little less extreme) and we’re also people pleasers lol. I’m not sure I have much in common with Phoebe because she’s honestly super unique. Ooh wait Phoebe and I both play guitar yayyyy.

gina

Next is Miss Gina Linetti from Brooklyn Nine Nine. She is a true queeeen and is never not iconic. I don’t think I’m similar to her in any way because she’s super confident, and me…not so much. I’m also sarcastic at times but I don’t do it that well.

hermione

Hermione Grangerrrr. You could never miss her in a list like this because she’s brave and smart and a great friend and just an amazing person in general. There probably wouldn’t even be a second book of Harry Potter without her because she literally helped them get out alive. Plus Emma Watson is suuuuper awesome too so *insert shrugging emoji because the actual shrugging emoji comes out weird*

lara jean

And finally, the one that I relate to the most is…Lara Jean Covey!! Honestly, who doesn’t relate to her, she’s a whole mood. She’s introverted, reads a lot and daydreams impossible things. Guess who else does! Hint: me. Also her room and her outfits and everything is so cute and you can’t deny that.

I hope you enjoyed reading this and kinda getting to know a bit more about me???

Let me know some of your favourite characters, characters you relate to or even just how your week has been because I always love reading your comments! 💖

Love, Hreem xx

First Half of the Year Wrap-Up

hey guys!

I hope you’re all happy and smiling and just feeling (at least) okay.
I know some really bad things have been and still are happening so hopefully everyone is safe.

I always love doing those monthly wrap up posts but there wasn’t enough stuff going on my life each month to actually write a post about. So I decided to do one for these past six months hahah. Honestly it was even hard for me to find the highlights of half the year so please appreciate it no matter how uneventful it may be.

jan 31

The first exciting thing to happen this year was Taylor’s documentary ‘Miss Americana’ which I have already talked about in another post so I won’t be repeating myself, although I would love to. I can almost hear your sighs of relief and I must say I’m quite offended. But we got so much content this year which I am extremely happy about. For example the One World Together concert, City of Lover Concert and stuff. Let’s move on.

Before I talk about this can we first have a little flashback to the times where I edited every. single. photo with this very aRtSy paint brush thing. I actually kinda want to bring it back lol. Anyways, here is me and my friends going to the mall for no reason (before corona, obviously). Simran tried a frappuccino I recommended, Maia is dangerously obsessed with animal crackers and I just exist. You have no clue who they are but I’m sure you can figure out from context.

IMG_0280

This picture is here just to show you that my very strange friend eats cheetos with chopsticks. I don’t even understand humans anymore, like???? Plus I still don’t know how to hold chopsticks properly so there’s a hint of jealousy there but this isn’t normal behaviour.

IMG_0290

We had international day in school! It was literally so much fun and me and my friends ate so much. Plus we got to dress up so I’ll take any excuse for that. One or two days later our school was like wow having such a big gathering probably wasn’t a good idea. Also here is like the first pic I posted where you can see my teeth post-braces yayyy.

IMG_0279

I just looked at the date of when this was taken and realised that at the time I had no idea that in four days I would have my last day of year 9 and I would proceed to not step foot out of my house for like 3 months. To be so innocent. Also they spelt my name wrong, obviously, but this is the closest they’ve ever got to spelling it right. I have a whole album on my phone of the different ways Starbucks has spelt my name. One example is Rem (???)

IMG_0283

This is the okay-est photo that I had taken of the rain. It rained very much this year and I am so (pleasantly) surprised. I am in love with rain so the 4 or 5 times it rained this year were the highlights. *people living in England are like 😳* It even rained in May which means something strange is going on this year, as if we couldn’t tell already. I forgot to mention that there was also hail!!! Closest we’ve ever gotten to snow in Dubai.

IMG_0281

I made eggless tiramisu!! I am now regretting not taking a better picture and realising just how terrible the quality of this picture is. Aside from that, the tiramisu was delicious *chef’s kiss*, this is the only recipe I can make by heart. If you want me to share the recipe please let me know because I’d love to ♥️

IMG_0294

The last part of my post is one of my biggest achievements: In the last 6 months I have listened to 107 hours of music. Ikr, what do I even do with my life. A lot of things actually, I just do them while listening to music. These are the top 8 artists I listen to apparently and I’m super confused at most of the numbers here. I mean, I don’t remember listening to Halsey or Harry Styles this much. It’s ok though, it was still awesome.

If anyone has made it to the end of the post THANK YOU SO MUCHHHH ♥️♥️♥️

Tell me about your highlights in the comments or literally just chat with me it makes me very happy 🙂

Love, Hreem xx

(p.s. it would mean the world if you checked out my covers)

Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

cookieesss

hey guys!

I hope everything is going okay and that you are, staying home.

I know it’s really boring being at home but it’s better to be bored than get the virus, I’m sure. Plus there are so many people working on the frontline who are doing so much that it’s rude of us to go out and risk everything.

Since you have so much time at home here is a really great, eggless recipe for chocolate cookies that I really love and you probably will too. It’s really not that hard so try it!!

Serves: at least 12 (depending on the size) || Time: 50 mins || Difficulty: Medium

You’ll Need:

  • 1 and 1/8 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips

How To Make It:

  1. Firstly, make sure to preheat your oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Mix all of your dry ingredients together in a large bowl and then keep the bowl to the side.
  3. Beat your butter, vanilla extract and sugar in a smaller bowl. Once it is much softer, add in the milk and mix until softened.
  4. Add your wet ingredients to your dry ingredients and mix them together until they form a dough. Then fold in the chocolate chips.
  5. To make sure the dough isn’t very soft, leave it in the fridge for about 20 mins.
  6. Once the dough is cool, make small balls out of the dough and place them on the baking tray, slightly pressed down with enough space between each cookie.
  7. Bake the cookies for around 10-15 minutes but not too long or else they’ll be too crunchy.
  8. Eat them whenever you want! But obviously not as soon as they come out of the oven because that’ll burn.

I hope you try out this recipe because it tastes really great and it’s not too difficult. If you do try it, please let me know how it went ☺️

Love, Hreem xx
