How To Make Coconut Cookies! 🥥

Hello world!

How’s everyone? 🙂 I’m finally posting regularly, every Sunday and Thursday, which is great! Also my mum is doing a lot better, turns out that she simply felt a bit ill after taking the vaccine. I’ve also been able to volunteer a lot more, and BAKE! so yesterday I made some really good and sweet coconut cookies, and I wanted to share the recipe with you! The cookies took me about 30-40 minutes to make, including waiting for the cookies to bake in the oven. It’s probably the easiest recipe I’ve ever followed, and I took it out of an old book in Hebrew which my grandpa got me back in 2010 lol. You can get the book right here.

Ingredients-

  • 200g powdered sugar
  • 200g ground/shredded coconut
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil

Step one-

Take all of the ingredients, and mix everything together in a bowl. Then, take a baking tray and place a piece of parchment paper on it. Make small balls out of your mixed ingredients, and place the balls on the baking tray. Take a spoon (or your hands) and gently press the balls and flatten them. Make sure to leave some space between the cookies, because they will spread out in the oven!

Step two-

Place the tray in a pre-heated oven (about 150C) and wait for about 10-15 minutes! Then take the cookies out of the oven, let them cool down for some time and that’s it! Enjoy eating them 🙂

And that’s it you guys! Thank you so so much for reading! Let me know if you end up making these cookies, I’d love to know! Also thank you so much for 50+ followers, that’s insane. That’s more than the amount of students in my class lol. CRAZY. Thank you! Drink lots of water, treat yourself and stay safe! I love you and am proud and thankful for you! See you next Sunday!

Toodles! 🍪

AliExpress- Earrings Haul! 🍒

Hello world!

Happy 2021! How have you all been? I hope that all is well. I don’t really have many updates! Since the last blog, my country went into a third lockdown, so I haven’t gotten the chance to see my friends or family. I did get the vaccine though! Only once, I’m supposed to go in to get the second time in a few weeks. My mum haven’t been feeling too well lately, so I really really hope that it’s just the flu. ANYWAY! In today’s blog I wanted to share a small haul- earrings from AliExpress! I’ve really been into crazy, big, funny earrings lately, so here are some that I’ve gotten over the past few months. Press on the “name” of the earring in order to open the link to buy it 🙂 Also, I literally get paid nothing to say or do any of this. I genuinely love these earrings.

Water tank earringsThese are so cute! They took 2-3 weeks to arrive. They’re a bit big, and also they’re not perfect- the paint isn’t 100% great, but alas I really love them, especially considering how cheap they were. They cost 1.70$, shipping is free.

Piano earrings– These are one of my favorites. Again, they’re a bit big and heavy, the paint isn’t too perfect but for some reason it makes me love them even more? They just looked super vintage and old, which I like. They cost 1.70$, shipping is free.

Flower earrings– One of my favorite earrings, again. They’re from a different store, so I feel like they’re also a bit better in their quality. They also cost a tiny bit more though! They cost 2.03$, shipping is free.

Dice earrings– They might be my favorites. The quality is really really good, especially considering the price. They are quite light, even though they look a bit big. I love them so much! They cost 1.36$, shipping is free.

Mushroom earrings– I keep saying this, but those earrings are super cute. Again, the paint isn’t perfect, but still I feel like it makes them look special anyway. I currently love mushrooms and that whole aesthetic, so I was really happy when I found these! They cost 1.83$, shipping is free.

Loops earrings– OKAYY so I actually expected the loops to be a bit smaller, so I’m not sure how much I love these! They’re quite big, and I feel like I would love to wear them when I feel like dressing up as if I were a mum in the 60’s lol. If you’re looking for big hoops though then they’re great. They cost 1.17$, shipping to Israel is 1.18$.

Vintage angel earrings– They’re so cute! Probably the ones that I got most compliments on! About two of my teachers asked me to see them during zoom class. They’re bigger than expected, but alas they are super cheap and the quality is great for the price. They cost 1.36$, shipping to Israel is 0.26$.

Gummy bear earrings– I don’t have a lot to say about these earrings, I think that they’re really great! They’re kind of basic, but I think that they’re great especially considering how affordable they are. They cost 0.99$, shipping to Israel is 1.04$.

Cherry earrings– I love them! I am actually wearing the earring right now. I bought them because it reminded me of Harry Styles’ song, Cherry, which I love! The earrings are kind of big, and they are a little bit heavier compared to the other earrings that I got from the same store. But still they are freaking amazing and I love them. They cost 2.49$, the shipping is free.

Fan earrings– They’re really cute! The painting isn’t perfect, again, but I just found out that they’re handmade, so considering that and the price I think they’re totally worth it. They cost 1.60$, the shipping is free.

Dinosaurs earrings– They’re amazing! SO cute! I really love how small they are- compared to the rest of the earrings that I shared with you today. They’re super light, and they look really great. They remind me of the “dinosaurs eating people” song, and I bought them before I found the song on Tiktok so I feel like I won lol. They cost 2.11$, the shipping is free.

Butterfly earrings– I bought these a while ago, and when I first received them I was lowkey disappointed. They aren’t as pretty as they look on the picture on AliExpress, but after some time I got used to them and am now considering buying another pair in a different color. They cost 1.67$, the shipping is free.

And that’s it for today! 🙂

I hope that your 2021 will be much better then 2020! If you end up buying any of the earrings, let me know what you think of them! I’m pretty sure that if you use a few of my links you could get a discount, or at least that’s what it said when I copied them off the website. BUT ANYWAY. I also want to mention that if you have the ability to buy earrings from better shops, such as small businesses, it’s always better. This blog is just to show you some stuff that you can get if you don’t have the ability to afford buying from a small business. Take care of yourself, WEAR A MASK! and drink water.

Toodles! 🍒
