Brewing with Briar (Ep.2) – Brownies! (From Winter Bucket List’14)

Heya everybody! Today we’re making……brownies! (Err, the title of this post gave it away though, didn’t it? :/ )

And yes, this was a task on my Winter Bucket List’14 – #3. Make some brownies.

Stuff you’ll need

  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • ½ cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup milk
  • A dash of baking powder

My Resolutions for 2015

The title is pretty self-explanatory, I think. These are my resolutions for 2015, along with a tiny explanation of each.

#1. Blog more.

Hmm…you know. I would just like to blog a bit more & about stuff other than my bucket list adventures (Huh?Adventures?Seriously?) & the collages that I keep making.

#2. Get a Wreck This Journal (& complete it).

I keep seeing Wreck This Journals popping up everywhere (errr…Pinterest & Polyvore, actually) & I think they’re pretty rad. I really want to try it out, so that sums up the reason for making this kinda-weird resolution.

#3. Become organized.

My folders, my desk, my wardrobe, my notebooks, everything- literally everything – always looks like a storm has just passed through it. And it has started to bug me, so getting organized sounds like the best solution right now.

#4. Get awesome grades.

Self-explanatory. Who doesn’t want great grades?

#5. Make an effort to talk to new people.

Because in 2014, I realized that not everyone around is as bad as I make them out to be.

I might post an update in (around) June or July of how I’m doing with these resolutions.

See ya guys in 2015! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

➽➽➽

Cheers!

How are you doing with coming up with resolutions?

(Almost) All About 2014

2014 was a weird year for me, in both a good way & a bad way. And I don’t know whether you can tell or not, but I just learned that I suck at writing end-of-the-year posts (as this is my first one ever ha XD).
I don’t exactly know what I should write in this post, so I’ll just list my top 5 books, top 5 movies, top 5 new obsessions, & top 5 songs of this year, & end with what I expect from 2015.
Top 5 Books (in no particular order)

  •  The Fault In Our Stars
  • The Percy Jackson Series
  • Threads
  • The Secret Dreamworld of a Shopaholic
  • Living High School to the Fullest (Wattpad book)

Top 5 Movies

  • Mockingjay Part I
  • The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Andrewww *swoon*)
  • Interstellar
  • Monsters University (Yes I watched it in 2014 XD And I LOVED it.)
  • Frozen (I watched this quite late too…and then I wondered why I hadn’t gone to watch it 2 months earlier while it was still in theatres :/ )

Question – Have you made any new years’ resolutions yet?

Merry Christmas! + Collage

Merry Christmas, everyone! 😀

I was going to have a few Christmas-related posts on my blog, but, as you’ve probably noticed, I’m already lagging behind (Autumn posts in December, anyone? XD). So I didn’t post anything related to Christmas.

At all.

And Christmas is today.

Oh well.

The reason for my lagging blog-giness (uhhh, I hope you understand what I mean to say) is that I’ve been sick on & off for the past 2 weeks (yeah, in the season of being jolly. Not that I really celebrate Christmas, but yeah.)

I have planned a few end of the year posts for this blog, so just pray that I’m able to publish them before 31st December 2014’s midnight ha XD

Oh, & another thing- I have a Winter Bucket List ‘14-’15. Yeah, I know, this bucket list obsession is quite severe. Hee. Anyways, you can go & check it out here.

And here’s a Christmas themed collage 🙂
