WELCOME TO MY WINTER MUJI HAUL! About a month ago, I went to the launch of Muji's new store on Tottenham Court Road, and picked up a few bits in the store as well as some exciting goody bags! So here's what I got :) to say my love for Muji is strong is an understatement…if you've picked up any of the items I've mentioned, let me know what you thought of them in the comments below! I also took a few shots of the new store, so if you're hitting the sales, here are a couple of things to pick up!

Chocolate Brownie Recipe with Delicious Alchemy

georgie minter-brown, actress, blogger, baking, chocolate brownies, recipe, delicious alchemy, gluten free

As a foodie, I’m all about trying new recipes and cooking techniques. One that I haven’t really got into yet are packet mixes, mainly because my mum brought me up with a very DIY approach to life; cooking from scratch, using what ingredients you have in the fridge to create something amazing, waste not want not etc etc etc. But I’m always up for a challenge, so when Delicious Alchemy sent me some packet mixes to try, I thought…why not?! Especially when one of them was to make chocolate brownies…mmm, chocolate brownies…

Delicious Alchemy are an award-winning company who are dedicated to creating yummy gluten free food. I’m not gluten intolerant, but I have tried gluten free food in the past (some of which have tasted ah-mazing). One problem with gluten free food is that you sometimes have to sacrifice the taste and texture of your favourite food so that you can eat it, which isn’t really fair. But companies are recognising this problem and are trying to create gluten free food that is up there with the original, like Delicious Alchemy

We followed the recipe on the packaging to make the brownies, so let’s see how they turned out!

georgie minter-brown, actress, blogger, baking, chocolate brownies, recipe, delicious alchemy, gluten free

INGREDIENTS
2 large eggs
100g unsalted butter

  1. Preheat the oven at 180°C (160°C for fan ovens). Line the base and sides of a 20cm (8 inch) square tin with greaseproof paper. Make sure the paper sticks out 2.5cm (about an inch) above the rim of the tin. 
  2. Add the brownie mix to a bowl. Melt the butter and pour over the brownie mixture. Stir until the mix is starting to form a batter. 
  3. Lightly beat the eggs, add to the mixture and stir together well. 
  4. Spread the batter into the tin and smooth the top. Bake for 18-22 mins (We kept ours in for around 25-30 mins to get a crunchy top and a gooey centre).
  5. Leave to cool in the tin for 20 mins before transferring to a cooling rack. Leave to cool completely before slicing.

The end result…
Our brownies came out incredibly crumbly (as you can see from the photo above)! I would suggest putting it straight onto a plate after cooling in the tin to catch any crumbs. It did create a beautiful texture, with a beautiful crunchy outside and gooey middle. It tasted amazing, if a little grainy. It did taste like gluten free food, but it wouldn't put me off making it again! And with so few ingredients needed, and a mixture so easy to make, you'd be a fool not to try it!

Spring/Summer 2016 with Modus PR

georgie minter-brown, actress, blogger, press day, ss16, spring, summer, 2016, fashion, modus publicity, The cambridge satchel company, bags

November was press day season! Meaning most of the last few weeks consisted of running around London from press day to press day, as they normally all end up on the same day. Cue comfy shoes and constantly downloading photos to free up SD card space. They are hella fun though, which definitely makes up for the stress and shoulder ache the day after. Everyone is looking to SS16, so here are what some of Modus PR's clients have got in store for the warmer months…


Let the fangirling commence. As a long-standing worshiper of TCSC, I was thrilled to bits to be greeted with this as the first stand! They sure are bringing the colour in next season, from Monaco Red to Sweet Pea Blue, two tone and stripes, and of course their classic colours. Their miniature satchels have always caught my eye, but as soon as I saw the cloud bag, I was done!

Seeing Muji there also got me pretty excited! Who doesn't love minimalistic, aesthetically pleasing homeware?! They had some old favourites, including their acrylic makeup storage, and some new creations such as their kettle, toaster, cuckoo clocks and skincare. Their skincare comes in two ranges; one for sensitive skin and one for high moisture and includes everything from toning water to sheet masks. They also had some cool customisable sneakers, and Christmas stamps- perfect for giving that personal touch to cards and presents this year.

Shoes and bags…do I need to say more? There was a fab collection on display, include fierce studs to metallic pastels. I'm a big lover of cobalt blue, so these two pairs really caught my attention!

You may or may not know that I'm a huge lover of socks. So when I saw these metallic socks at Falke, I was very happy ;) they also do great hosiery, with lace patterned tights right down to your basic black sheer pair.

For SS16, TSE drew inspiration from Jamaica and the effortless laid back feel around the island. I loved the playful woven knits and watercolour palette. They only use sustainable, environmentally friendly fabrics, with organic cotton and cashmere (minus the usually harsh chemicals).

Lee's SS16 collection is called Freedom and Liberation and is inspired by hanging street art and open birdcages. This collection has a carefree feeling, combined with a 70's Californian silhouette. The classic tailoring is combined with a free-spirited approach with low racer-back maxi dresses with thigh splits, and flared culottes. Spaghetti strap beach dresses hung alongside asymmetric coats, and stripe patterns made of natural raw edge silk created texture.

GG's launches with the Slipper collection- a contemporary interpretation of the babouche embellished with metallic brush strokes and splashes. There is more than meets the eye with these shoes…they have a concealed wedge heel, padded insole and the backs can be folded down for the real 'slipper' feel.

I'm a huge lover of Zoeva products, so getting the opportunity to see the new collections was really exciting! They had some of their ongoing collections as well as the new Taupe palette and brushes. The palette has a collection of beautiful warm and cold taupe shades, with awesome graphic packaging. I'm really into violet eyeshadows at the moment, which has made this palette shoot to the top of my wishlist! The brush set is equally stunning! It goes along with the colour-theme of the Taupe palette with a gorgeous matching clutch.

Aaah, Pixi. This is a brand I've always admired, so to see their new collection was super exciting! There are some beautiful colours coming your way, including pastels, corals and beautiful sea blues. They also have some exciting skincare products coming out, including a mud cleanser, tonic toner and a tinted face gel!

When I was younger A&F was one of the brands to be seen in. I've steered clear since then, but after seeing their new collection, I've already started making a mental note of things I want, including this cute denim tie up top, sunglasses and cute white crochet shorts.

I spent ages in the G-Star Raw section, and for good reason! There was so much to see, including the deconstructed 5620 G-Star Elwood to celebrate 20 years of the iconic 3D denim. There was also am awesome khaki collection, denim shoes and a collection made from rubbish collected from our oceans called Battle For Big Blue.

From striped dungarees to oversized smock dresses, pinafores and shirts, this is literally me in a brand! There wasn't one thing that I didn't like! I attended their SS16 press day so you'll get to see the collection in full then.
