♡ SEPTEMBER FAVOURITES 2017 | CARE BEARS, BETSEY JOHNSON & UNIF JUMPER ♡


Without the risk of sounding cliche, how the heck is it October already? I apologise because I know everybody says how they can't believe how quickly the year has gone, but I genuinely can't and as I am getting older it scares me more! Going into the shops and seeing the Christmas decorations and the food out already is slightly too much but I guess some people like forward planning? Anyway today I am starting my first in hopefully a lot more monthly favourites post series. Reading other peoples monthly favourites is something I have enjoyed for years and it is my second favourite type of blog post to read after hauls. So wham bam and thank you m'am here are a few of my favourite things from the month of September!

CRAFT HAUL | ACRYLIC PAINTS, CONFETTI & SPIROGRAPHS!



My second favourite thing to shop for after homewares? Being a massive lover of the crafting world means shops like Hobby Craft are heaven to me. When it comes to crafting there is not one particular area of arts and crafts that I stick to the most and I am always wanting to experiment with new mediums and materials. Recently though I have been loving acrylic painting and have felt so inspired to just sit with my art book or a canvas and splash some colours onto a page. I think when it comes to painting in particular I used to feel this immense pressure to paint something fantastic or extravagant and that has always left me feeling like I didn't even want to try at painting as it would never be perfect. The thing that I am learning most about painting now is that like everything else in life - there is no such thing as perfect! And it seems to be the pieces that I don't feel like I have to follow a strict regime or certain colour code turn out to be my favourites.

A SPLASH OF COLOUR | MY SUMMER FASHION WISH LIST




In true Gwen Setfani style indeed if I was a rich girl I would at this moment in time be changing up my entire wardrobe. I feel like as I am getting into my 20's I am going through that rather cliche finding myself stage. But my discovery stage doesn't include a gap year to Thailand or mediating on the edge of a cliff - rather just wanting to be a little bit more experimental with my fashion choices. I have lived so long in black leggings and baggy t-shirts BTW still a great outfit choice. But I feel like my love of colour and sparkle is screaming to be expressed. Therefore I make this very public pledge that I will from now on buy clothes that I WANT TO rather than clothes I feel I should... Anyway enough of that, I thought it would be fun to share my current wish list of some fashion pieces I have so desperately been needing recently. I love reading other peoples wish lists and had just as much fun putting my own together, so I hope you enjoy seeing it too!

MINI DONUT CAKES & HOW TO MAKE THEM!


Hi everyone! So today I wanted to share my latest baking creation with you and it is these colourful, mini donut cakes. They are actually miniature Victoria sponge cakes with freshly whipped cream and strawberry jam disguised to look like donuts. I want to try and start making different types of cakes/cupcakes that look like other foods - I have seen the burger cupcakes circling on Pinterest for ages now and I am so desperate to try and make them myself! I just like being a bit different and not just making the usual cupcake with icing on top (although don't get me wrong they still are one of my favourite things to do!) I think these mini donut cakes would be perfect for a party of any age or just to make for a bit of fun. So let me get started and tell you how to make them...







Whilst I was making these I thought how good it would be to make one giant donut cake - it would look so good for someones birthday cake right?

Question... If you could only ever have one type of cake for the rest of your life what would it be? Please leave your comments below and don't forget to follow me on other social media accounts to see my other DIYS and interior posts. Thank you so much for reading!

MY FIRST SUMMER FASHION HAUL | PRIMARK, TOPSHOP, H&M & ASOS


Clothes, clothes, clothes I just can't say no... There seems to be phases of either there being literally nothing in the shops that I want or that just gives me a meh feeling; or it's kinda like I NEED IT ALL... Unfortunately for my bank balance it was the latter this time - but every cloud has a silver lining right? It was my birthday so I had some extra dollar to spend.
