It was my nephews 5th birthday, so obviously that gave me an excuse to bake a cake! I didn't really have a clue what I was going to make as I'd never made anything non-girly before (it still came out marginally girly oops), so I just decided to make a huge pick 'n' mix style cake as all kids love that right?! I had a bit of a mare as I had one failed attempt with the sponge at first and had to start again from scratch, but I ended up with three layers of sponge and stacked them together with vanilla buttercream and strawberry jam. I then added two packs of chocolate fingers to the outsides and piped on some vanilla buttercream roses. I'd bought an absolute ton of different chocolates and biscuits and added bits of each for the decoration and somehow came up with this beast of a cake! The only downside is that I only got half a slice *crys*.
I popped into town quickly to grab a few things that I needed and it resulted in this...Victoria's Secret and Starbucks, I have no willpower! I got a Strawberry & Cream Frappucino because they are my favourite and I hadn't had one in about a year!
Strawberry & Marshmallow Soap
I was kindly gifted this lovely scented bar of soap from The Milk Bar Soap Company who make their luxury soaps with goats milk. I have the Strawberry & Marshamallow bar which is a pretty ombre pink colour and it smells gorgeous!
February saw my first Valentine's Day with my boyfriend, and although we didn't do presents he did surprise me with a lovely bouquet of roses in soft pink and cream shades, my favourite! I've never been given a card or flowers on Valentine's until now, can't you just tell I was a loser at school :-))))
Victoria's Secret Makeup Bag
So this is what I bought from my 'quick' shopping trip. A brand new Victoria's Secret store had just opened up where I live so of course I had to check it out. I didn't actually buy any clothing but I did pick up this cute makeup bag in the signature pink and white stripes! It actually fits so much more in it that I thought it would, and I use it for storing all of the beauty products that I use on a daily basis.
Blush Pink Teacup & Saucer
I bought a pretty teacup & saucer purely because of how cute it is and I don't even drink tea or coffee (#fail). So obviously I just had to have a miniature hot chocolate in it, not forgetting the marshmallows of course!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Pure Hollywood
Apologies for the rubbish quality of this last photo, I take all my pictures of myself with my front facing camera as you can tell straight up if the photo is going to make you look like Mama June or not. But unfortunately the quality of the camera sucks! Anyway I finally bought an Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in the popular shade Pure Hollywood and am wearing it in this photo. I really like the colour of it, but I hate to say that I do think there are better liquid lipstick formulas out there (Jeffree Star & Dose of Colors).
