Super Chocolately Nutella Mug Cake

I had a craving for something seriously chocolate cake yesterday, and was very sad upon seeing absolutely no chocolate in my cupboards. I realised that I had ingredients for baking cakes of ever kind, which is what prompted me in the direction of  mug cakes.

Nutella Mug Cake
4 tbsp self-raising flour
4 tbsp granulated sugar
3 tbsp cocoa powder 
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp vegetable oil
1 large egg
whipped cream

The recipe is sooo simple.
Make sure to choose a large enough mug so that the cake doesn't overflow. I think this recipe can really be split between two smaller mugs. I like to collect mugs which is what lead to me having such a large cappuccino mug; perfect for mug cakes!

I just tossed the dry ingredients together in the mug, while all the wet ingredients were mixed in a jug. I poured the wet ingredients into the mug; mixing well with a fork. Make sure to be thorough with the mixing so that there are no pockets of flour or cocoa hidden at the bottom.

I placed the mug in my microwave and set the timer for a minute. I ended up adding a further two minutes for the cake to bake completely. If you want it slightly melted in the middle then try between a minute and a half to two minutes.

I topped my mug cake with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles; dusting with cocoa powder is another option if you have no sprinkles. But really everyone should have sprinkles!

Anyone have any amazing recipes that I should try?

MAC: Fraud or Not?

It's getting to the time of year when  people start gathering together all there gifts in the rush to the holiday season. They start trying to get the best gifts possible for the best price they can. Unfortunately that leaves them vulnerable for people to take advantage of them. The most common form of this is through the use of counterfeit goods. 
Recently a MAC lipstick was purchased for me, as a Christmas gift, from eBay. When I learned of it I was immediately sceptical and dubious of how genuine it was; I like to research into the item and view the pictures available myself. When I checked the listing, the lipstick was listed as 'MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick'. Upon looking at the details and the images available, I noticed that there were very few specifics and one general image of the lipstick with the lid off. I immediately wrote to the seller asking for pictures of the bottom label on the box and the lipstick tube (Well as details such as finish and shade). I knew th…

Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paint in Neptune

Remember way, way back, back to the very beginning of my blog. One of the very first products that I reviewed was the Barry M Lip Paint in the shade Genie. For those who don't know, Genie is an unusual colour changing lipstick. While it looks green in the tube, it turns a shade of pink on the lips that is supposed to be different for each person. It is supposed to be a result of the lipstick reacting to the alkaline level of the lips. 

Farewell to Lime Crime Unicorn Lipsticks

As you may, or may not, know Lime Crime are discontinuing their Unicorn Lipsticks. Such a sad thing, I know. I remember first hearing of the lipstick from a family member who had one in their collection. I always promised myself that one day, I would have a Unicorn Lipstick. When I seen their Instagram post about the discontinue, I immediately went onto their website and bought not one or two, but THREE Unicorn Lipstick. Let me tell you I have never been happier; their are no post buy regrets on these babies!
