Yay, the worst month of everyone's year is officially over! Well I say that, but as January's go mine wasn't all that bad. In fact it was pretty awesome, despite the weather being damp, miserable and bascially ice cold.
Princess Castle Birthday Cake
It was my beautiful little niece's 4th birthday and it gave me the perfect opportunity to set my sights high and create up a magical, dream princess castle cake for her. It officially set the record for the longest time I've ever spent baking a cake, and it was so tall you can't even see the little flag on top of the tallest turret in the photo! But it was so worth it, all little girly girls deserve princessy things on their birthday! Plus it had pink, raspberry frosting inside which is my favourite!
Pink Ruffled Princess Bedding
I came across this beautiful ruffled, blush pink bedding and thought it would go perfectly on my pretty white french bed. Not only was it from Argos of all places, but it was also in the clearance for about *drum roll please* £10! Ten. Great. British. Pounds. I know! It looks so beautiful, you'd never know.
The Girliest House Ever?!
Like I said on Instagram, I'd totally love to tell you that I just casually strolled by this pretty, pink, girly dream house in Knightsbridge and snapped a photo in the moment, but no, I dragged my boyfriend (who was totally willing might I add) around London just to find it. Does that make me a total saddo? Probably, but hey, at least I'm keeping it real haha, blogger life. I feel sorry for the owner of the house, people must be constantly prancing about outside having photoshoots, whilst they're trying to drink their cuppa and watch TV. Although I'd like to imagine they're out elsewhere buying Chanel handbags and dining at Laduree...
Cream Tea at The Tea Terrace
I visited the prettiest little Tea Terrace at the top of House Of Fraser on Oxford Street, which has the girliest Parisian pastel pink, blue and white decor with luxe upholstered seating, and they serve everything on beautiful Royal Albert china. It looks like such a dream! I had white chocolate and cranberry scones with a chai tea, and my boyfriend went for a hot chocolate and gooey brownie. The service wasn't the greatest, but if you're only hoping for a pretty Instagram shot you won't be disappointed...
Kate Spade Pretty And Witty Candle
I'd had my eye on this beautiful little pink and white scented candle from Kate Spade for so long, and finally decided to buy it with some Christmas money I was given. It's so adorable and I love the little phrase written on the front 'pretty and witty make the perfect pair'. I don't know if I can bring myself to burn it just yet, but it would make a lovely makeup brush holder once I have!
I created these cute little 10 year anniversary cupcakes for my lovely friend Paige and her fiance, (her Instagram is a dreamy Yankee candle and bath bomb heaven! You should probably go and take a peek here, just sayin'). I was so pleased with the outcome and I love how cute the little designs looked all together. My heart just melts for that mini champagne bottle though!
Adorable Kitten Mug
As I was saying in my previous ASOS Haul post (read it here if ya missed it!) I have a blatant obsession with cute mugs, and I should probably check into mug rehab 'cos that's totally a thing. How could I resist this little kitty mug though, with the heart shaped nose, whiskers and pink ears?! Only £4 from Matalan FYI...
Charlotte Tilbury Makeup
I recently received the best blogger mail of all time, gifting me none other than Charlotte ~fricken~ Tilbury makeup! To say I was ecstatic was an understatement. Firstly I screamed and freaked out, then I went into a little happy dance mode and then after about an hour I cried. Haha yep, award for the lamest blogger ever over here please and thank you! Her makeup range is like pure gold dust to me and I was so touched to have been gifted it. I've been using the Instant Look In A Palette alongside the new Quick 'N' Easy makeup kit (reviews here and here), and have been loving how fresh and glowy they look! They are just really great sets to have in your collection.
