Miss Flossypots’ trip to Auckland!

Earlier this month my Mum and I decided to head up to Auckland for a few days to refresh and unwind! For those of you who don’t know Auckland is located near the top of the North Island – one hour away from Wellington via plane; a pretty quick flight! Whilst we were up there I decided to blog and try to take as many photos as possible and I’ve come home only to realize that all of the photos are pretty much food related – typical. I hope you enjoy this little follow me around – let me know in the comments below!

Outfit of the day + A little catch up!

First off I want to apologize for the lack of posts on here. I’ve been struggling to find balance with work and life stuff; being an adult is surprisingly difficult sometimes!  But here I am trying to get my blog back on track with a small and silly outfit of the day post.
I finished work around 4.30 so the boyfriend and I decided to head to the Botanical Gardens to take some photos, it was super windy and cold but the flowers were phenomenal. I reviewed this lazybones dress awhile ago and it has got to be one of my favourite dresses; it’s super comfortable and the print just screams vintage. And now that it’s officially Spring my signature bumper bang and floppy hat is back and I’m so ready to rock it (if the Wellington wind permits it)! Pro tip: if you ever struggle with vintage hair sets just whack a floppy hat on and it solves everything!

Miss Flossypots’ Bakes: Chelsea Buns

I originally wanted to bake cinnamon rolls yesterday but unfortunately I had only one tbsp of cinnamon left in the cupboard and it was a pajamas and gross hair kind of day. I wasn’t leaving the house  so I had a rummage around in the cupboard and managed to find some sultanas, mixed peel (leftover from my Lemon Fudge Slice) and a bit of powdered ginger. I haven’t baked chelsea buns since my culinary arts course (we had a test on them)! And I remember absolutely loving them when I baked them – they’re just as good as the bakery, maybe even better. I omitted the sugar syrup glaze which creates a shine and a sticky texture because I felt it didn’t need it – if you want to here is a simple recipe that you just pour over the buns when they’re fresh out of the oven.

Lemon Fudge Slice

IMG_0059

If a slice recipe contains sweetened condensed milk in the ingredient list then I’m 100% interested in baking it. Recently my boyfriend bought me The Great New Zealand Baking Book filled with tons of Kiwi classics from complete and utter indulgence to healthy twists to usually quite rich recipes all from Kiwi chefs such as Nadia Lim, Niki Bezzant, Dame Alison Holst, Jo Seagar, Julie Le Clerc, Ruth Pretty and Simon Holst just to name a few! I came across the lemon fudge slice within minutes looking through the book and just had to bake it! Lemon fudge has a nostalgic feel to it, something I had a lot growing up and there’s something about two packs of digestive biscuits mixed with condensed milk  and lemon that’s incredibly enticing for me (& hopefully you too)! This recipe is super easy, requires no oven time and tastes amazing! Continue reading “Lemon Fudge Slice”

A Pokémon GO – OOTD

I decided on Saturday that I would download the Pokemon GO app just see what all the hype was about and next thing I know I’ve walked 14 km in two days. I grew up with Pokemon; watching the show, playing the card game and playing it on Game boy colour so I knew I would be a fan. I thought it would be similar to the games but this is almost an entirely new concept and so interactive.. maybe a little addictive too. Anyway I don’t want to bore you! Here is what I wore on Sunday.

Lemon Curd

I have been so weary of lemon curd for such a long time, maybe it’s because of the time where I completely split the curd to the point where it resembled lumpy orange porridge. Or could it be the time when I took it off the heat at least five minutes early resulting in a soup like texture; who knows? It could be either one of them. Well I have now seen the light after finding the perfect recipe; it’s simple, no thermometer necessary nor will you need any muslin. Four ingredients, ten minutes tops and foolproof (if you listen to me that is)!
