Excellent Quick and Easy Easter Recipes

Easter is an awesome time in the year and comes around so quick! There’s so much to do between seeing family and friends and getting everything organised. But let’s get down to business, the best part about Easter is devouring chocolate and sugar filled snacks without any guilty thoughts weighing over us. Because it’s Easter…and calories don’t count on Easter right? Good!

It’s the long weekend so it’s a perfect time to get into the kitchen and we’ve got some cracking Easter sweet snack recipes for you that the family will love and will only take you five minutes.

3 Ingredient Chocolate Birds Nests

Chocolate Nests

1 Packet (100g) of Changs noodles

250g Milk Chocolate

75g Smooth Peanut Butter

This recipe is an adaptation on the classic chocolate “spider” recipe and make for great treats for Easter.

To make; simply melt the chocolate and peanut butter in the microwave and mix until well combined. Pour the crunchy noodles into the chocolate mixture and stir until all the noodles are coated. Spoon out the mixture into large muffin tins in a nest shape, making sure the sides of the nests stand tall and there is a good well of space in the middle. Put in the fridge to chill for a few hours

5 Minute Easter Rocky Road Easter Popcorn

Rocky Road Popcorn

100g plain (or salt) popcorn

100g mini marshmallows

50g peanuts

250g milk chocolate

This rocky road popcorn is incredibly delicious and so easy to make, the whole snack can be constructed in under five minutes. Plus it’s a great way to use up chocolate from Easter eggs that are broken and give as a present, wrapped up in little bags!

To make; simply melt the chocolate in the microwave and leave for a few minute to cool slightly. In a bowl combine the popcorn, mini marshmallows and peanuts and mix through. Pour the chocolate mixture over the popcorn mix and softly fold through. Once the choclate has set, spoon the mixture into cups, or if you are giving away, into some small plastic wrap bags. If you want some extra colour you can always add some sprinkles or a crushed up Easter egg. Yum!

6 Different Style of Watches You Need to Start Your Collection

In the world of fashion, there’s an ever-growing catalogue of different styles. So really, if you love wearing watches, owning one watch is simply not enough ;). There are sporty watches, dressy watches, and watches with quirks that add an element of interest to your style. Collecting watches is a growing style trend, so how do you get started?

If you’re looking to create a watch collection, here’s a few staple styles to get your started!

The sports watch

All the gym-junkies and sportswear lovers will be familiar with this style of sports watch. Usually found in bright colours with silicone or plastic bands. This style of watch is perfect when you’re working out or going for a walk with friends.

The vintage watch

Who doesn’t love a little bit of vintage? Throwback to when glamour and sophistication were the epitome of style. For the guys, we love this men’s Tommy Hilfiger leather watch with classic American style. For Ladies, go vintage with a rose gold Fossil watch with slim chain-style band and pair with some bracelets for a classic layered look.

The dress watch

Getting dressed up is the perfect occasion to don your latest timepiece. Great brands to look to for sophisticated, dressed up watches include Hugo Boss, Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs (just to name a few). Of course, we’d love to all own our our Cartier collection, but whose got that type of money sitting around?

The tech watch

Time to get digital! 21st century is all about digital and if you’re not into the whole Apple watch scenario then a good digital watch works well! Some even have Bluetooth functionality to link up with your smart phone. Great for getting call and email alerts and for those times when you need to find your lost phone.

The leather band watch

Nothing says quality like a good leather band. Women’s leather band watches are great for both dressed up and dressed down occasions. Men’s watches in leather exude style and confidence; go for something with a light brown leather for a different look.

The quirky watch

For those times when you feel like wearing something fun, unique and a little bit out there! Go for something with bright colours, bold patterns and something that is bound to get you the right type of attention!

10 Travel Essentials You Must Take On Your Next Trip!

By Tina

So you’re counting down the hours and minutes until your next big trip overseas, and finally, it’s time to start packing and you have no idea what you should be packing? Yup, we know the feeling, which is why we have compiled a list of 21st Century essentials that you probably shouldn’t be leaving the country without.

Say goodbye to the stress of packing because we just made life a whole lot easier for you.

1. Smartphone

Don’t waste precious time on your holidays documenting your trip on Facebook or whats-apping your other half. Instead, look up and find hidden gems and local restaurants on apps like TripAdvisor or Qype, book your next destination on skyscanner.com, or simply to use Google Maps to find your way back to your hotel. Did I mention that most smartphones have amazing built-in cameras these days? Yup, who even needs an SLR anymore. For an Android smartphone that won’t break your bank…

2. Crossbody bag or bum bag

I know it, you know it… bum bags aren’t exactly the trendiest of accessories, but sometimes in life you learn that being the coolest cat in town makes you a whole lot more susceptible to getting pickpocketed. Yup, I learnt this the hard way. So make sure you get yourself a small crossbody bag or bum bag and hang it where you can see it. Trust me, it looks a whole lot better than carrying a huge backpack on your chest, which is what some travellers resort to. For a range of stylish crossbody bags, take a look here

3. Kindle or tablet

As much as you may be looking forward to the journey itself, whether it be the plane trip or the 5-hour train ride you booked from Venice to Rome, you will get bored. Immensely bored. After enjoying the picturesque scenery for about 10 minutes, you’ll be twiddling your fingers. Pack a Kindle so you can read up on your next travel destination or a tablet so you can keep yourself entertained with games on those long trips. Make sure you have the perfect tech travel gadget to keep your boredom at bay on the road.

4. Travel lock

Whether you’re backpacking or staying at 5-star hotels, it’s a good idea to keep your belongings safe by purchasing locks for all your suitcases and bags. I can highly recommend the Victorinox TSA approved Sentry Cable lock for your baggage.

5. Headphones/Earphones

Headphones will make your trip a hell of a lot easier, trust me. It’s OK if you get stuck sitting next to Mister Snorlax on your 15-hour flight to LA, because you know what? Your quality set of noise blocking headphones will eliminate any unwelcome sounds. I suggest a pair of these babies for the best travel experience. Not only for the sole purpose of blocking out noises, but I’m a firm believer that you need a track for every destination, so that when you come back home and hear that track, you can sit back and reminisce on the best times of your life.

6. Travel Adaptor

Don’t leave the country without an adaptor for every country you’re visiting, because they can be hard to get once you are overseas. The last thing you’ll want to deal with is a dead smartphone with the address of your hotel saved on there.

7. Go Travel Emergency Phone Charger

In case you have forgotten no. 6, or you just can’t for the life of you find a place to charge your phone, then a Go Travel Emergency Phone Charger will be your lifesaver if you’re ever in a pickle. You don’t want to miss out on an opportunity to post the perfect instagram selfie because of a flat phone battery!

8. Camera

If you’re not satisfied with your smartphone’s photo taking abilities, or need that extra bit of quality for your Instagram pics, then definitely consider bringing a proper camera with you. Want to know how to get the best pics to bring home to show everyone? Check out this guide to nailing travel photography with any camera on Scoopon Life.

9. Wet Wipes

You may not be travelling with a baby, but trust me, these are a gift from the travel gods. Use them to clean up scrapes and scratches, mop dust off your shoes, wipe the sweat off your face, scrub a day’s worth of dirt and grime off your hands if there’s no toilet nearby, and so on. You can thank me later. Grab a 64-pack here for as little as $2.49

10. Travel Organiser

Imagine yourself sitting back on a train, listening to your favourite song, cruising through the stunning Italian countryside, and a wild ticket inspector appears. You rummage through your backpack… no sign of you ticket. You grab your 20kg suitcase from the storage compartment above and frantically search through it exposing your whole suitcase and undies to the other passengers. You can save yourself the trouble and grab a trusty travel organiser that will keep all your documents in one safe place.

Now that your ready for your trip, with all the essentials you need, take a look at these posts:
