WHITE RICE & SWEETCORN | SIMPLE RECIPE

Hey! 
So I remember I promised you guys that I am going to be sharing my white rice and sweetcorn recipe. I know it's a bit late but here it is! 

What Do I Need? 
  • Two (250 ml) cups of Basmati Rice 
  • A Can of Original (Natural Sweet) Sweet Corn
  • Salt
  • Hot Water  

Step 1 - Measure the rice and pour it into the rice cooker. Remember its Two (250 ml) cups of basmati rice. 



Step 2 - Open up the can of sweetcorn and pour it on top of the rice (rinse it once first if you want, before you pour it in).


Step 3 - Add a little bit of salt. (Measure 2 teaspoons of salt)
 And then.... 


Step 4- Add the hot water and measure it with your finger. To do this you have to put your finger on top of the rice and make sure the water does not pass the second line of your finger. 


Step 5- Mix everything together with a spoon, and then cover it. 

And Thats it!

10 Revision Tips | University Diaries

Hey! 
Hope your weekend was fab.
I don't know about you but I had so much work to do this weekend. 
I had essays to complete, presentation to prepare for, and so on. Luckily, I don't have exams in May, which I am so happy about! 


However, I do understand that some of you are starting your exams next month. Don't you worry cause I got some tips that could help you! 
In Today's post, I am going to be sharing some of the revision tips that I follow during exam periods. 
Here goes,
  1. As a foodie, I always make sure I have snacks around me. Trust me it is essential ha ha. 
  2. Take short breaks like 10 mins every hour. 
  3. Drink loads of water. 
  4. Write important points from notes on sticky notes, and stick them around your mirror or bedroom wall.
  5. Look through revision guides. 
  6. Study groups ( with class mates/friends) are also effective.
  7. Sleeping early is a must! because then you can wake up early to get a lot of revision done in a day. 
  8. If you love artsy stuff, then you could make your revision notes colourful. They make notes easier to memorise.
  9. Look for past papers or past questions from your university or online, so you can do them everyday after revision . 
  10. Don't forget to always think positive. 
Really hope this helps a lot of you!
Wishing you the best of luck with your exams. 
Until next time beauts 
xoxo
