Study Break ✎

Just, things to do, look at and listen to, when the going gets tough and you end up drowning in your sea of textbooks with only your endless cups of coffee as your lifeboat ^_^

  1. Listen to the 500 Days of Summer soundtrack:
Ohmygosh, I can't even, like, explain. The music from this is movie is so beautiful and peaceful and calming and soothing. Think chilled piano, soaring violins and the most laid-back guitar tunes, with a little bit of whistling in the mix ;) Go check out the user SnafuOverYou on Youtube for the full, amazing soundtrack. My favourites?

         2.  Check out an amazeballs Tumblr:

Like this one >>>  for words, quotes and typography
It's absolutely fantastic :)

         3. Check out the Beauty Gypsy:

This is literally like, the best beauty blog I've come across. You can find anything on here, and all tips and tricks are tried and tested, so you're getting legit stuff guys. I like the fact that it mixes old, traditional remedies with modern science. It's the cream of the crop, people :)

         4. Try out a new hairstyle:

Seriously. Why not? I quite like this lovely hair bow.

        5. Make yourself some fabulous frozen hot chocolate:

It's blithering hot here so this drink is quite well needed dontcha think?

Needed: 6 ounces of your favorite chocolate (we used dark chocolate), 1 teaspoon espresso powder (optional), 4 teaspoons hot cocoa mix, 4 tablespoons powdered sugar, 3 cups milk, 5-6 cups of ice and marshmallows to garnish (you can toast them or sprinkle mini ones on top).
In a pan melt the chocolate over low/medium heat. Whisk in the espresso powder, cocoa mix and powder sugar until well combined and no lumps remain. Allow this mixture to cool off. In a blender combine the chocolate mixture, milk and ice; blend until well incorporated. If you want to make this a milkshake instead you could use ice cream in stead of milk and ice—up to you! Garnish with marshmallows and enjoy before it melts away!
