Easter treats

Hey guys,

So yesterday I made some Easter Cornflake cakes, they’re so simple but so delicious and I thought I’d show you my finished products and also the ingredients I used. I love baking but I go through A LOT of trial and error as I’m still new to it all.

Cake

So I started off with the following ingredients:

  • 100g of Dairy Milk Chocolate
  • 50g Unsalted Butter
  • 100g of Cornflakes
  • Enough Mini Eggs for 2 per cake
  • Lakeland Vanilla frosting (to tack the mini eggs down)

I also had some super cute Easter themed cupcake cases and little flags that I poked into my cornflake cakes. These were from poundland so they were really well priced for the quality.

I’m sure you guys get the method of making these cakes but its just a matter of melting the unsalted butter and chocolate together, then carefully and slowly adding the cornflakes. I put the mixture in the cases and put the muffin tray in the fridge for around an hour. Took them out and applied a very small bit of frosting to each Mini Egg and stuck them the cakes.

Miss Sporty 3 for £5

Evening guys,

Last weekend I went into my local Superdrug and saw a deal of 3 products for £5 with Miss Sporty. I’ve never tried their products but thought this was perfect to give it a go as I’ve heard some pretty good reviews on the products. I plan to do a review on these products in a week or so once I’ve been able to use them a few times

The first thing I picked up was the ‘Perfect Stay 10 Hour Liquid Concealer’. This looks slightly darker than my skin tone even though it was the lightest shade they do in ‘001 Light’, I usually like going for a super pale concealer to brighten my under eyes so I’ve not got super high hopes for this product, however I have heard nothing but good things so I’m looking forward to giving it a go.

The next product is the ‘Fabulous Eyes Glossy Shadow’ stick in the colour ‘160 Peanut Butter’, I’d describe this as a mauve pink/purple shade, but in some lights you can see brown tones. This is a definitely a ‘go to’ colour for me, there have been other eye shadow sticks which I haven’t got on well with but seeing as this was in the deal it was definitely worth me giving it a go.

Finally, the last product is a ‘Instant Lip Colour and Shine’ stick, it doesn’t have a name on the packaging however its a nice red/pink colour. I did swatch this on my hand and it does look pretty pigmented considering how moisturising the product feels. I really like wearing a lip product with a lot of moisture to it as I do tend to suffer with dry lips so I’ll let you know next week how I get on with this one.

Let me know if you guys have tried any of these products and how you got on with them as I’d love to know 🙂

OOTD – Belated Mother’s Day Meal

Hey guys,

So last Sunday I went for a belated Mother’s day meal at Jamies Italian with all my family. I thought I’d do a post on my chosen outfit.

The grey floaty dress was £8 from Primark. I paired that with a Pretty Twisted Hamsa choker and a precious stone necklace that I received as a gift last year. I haven’t got a picture to show my footwear but I wore my black Primark suede Chelsea boots.

To add a bit of colour I chose Mac’s ‘Herione’ Matte lipstick and on my eyes I wore the Naked Palette 3. The colours: Dust, Liar and Blackheart on the outer corner.

This is a post that I haven’t tried out before so let me know what you think!

Lucky Dip Golden Egg

Hey guys,

So a couple of weeks ago, my favourite online jewellery store announced the release of some limited edition Golden Eggs. Each egg would contain 5 pieces of ‘spring time’ jewels.

With these eggs being limited edition (and only £12!!!) it did mean that there weren’t that many going on sale, so when the time came to purchase them, it was a fight against my laptop to try and get mine into the basket and paid for before everyone else got their hands on them.

I thought I’d give you guys a little post on what was in my egg and why I LOVED it so much.  After opening the package this is how it came, so much effort in the little touches, just another reason why I love the company. (I should have waited until I got home to open them rather than at work but I was way too excited!)

The 5 pieces I received were: A honeycomb and bee necklace, a rabbit necklace, a deer necklace, a rabbit pin badge and a dandelion adjustable ring.

None of these pictures to the jewels any sort of justice because they are truly gorgeous. Everyone check out Cheap Frills. They’re also on Facebook and Instagram. They often put on awesome offers and I guarantee you’ll love their jewels as much as me!

Have a good weekend guys,

Favourite ASOS brands..

Hey guys,

I haven’t written a clothing fashion post yet and after doing some online shopping I thought I’d write about a few brands on ASOS that i’m really loving at the moment, all for different reasons.

I recently got given a new job within my company and it’s the first time that I’m going to have to dress in smart/office wear. I’m really finding this difficult at the moment as I’m definitely the type of girl to choose comfort over looking smart. ASOS has made the whole process a little less frustrating so I wanted to share a few of my favourite brands (and items) that I’ve recently spotted, some related to work wear and some to general casual wear.

  1. MONKI

This brand is so up my street, not necessarily for office wear but definitely casual. It’s got a lot of cloths which I find quite flattering, plus it is so reasonably priced. Here are a few of my favourites within their current collection.

2. Quay Australia

I’m not usually one to obsess over sunglasses, however since I started wearing glasses last year they have become a massive part of any outfit. I cannot wait for summer and half of the reason is down to this brand. Check out some of my favourites below.

3. Fashion Union

This is a very ‘boho’ brand and some of the clothes are gorgeous office wear too. It’s really reasonably priced and perfect Spring/Summer wear. Some of the clothes are super skimpy and not for my figure but there are a few absolutely beautiful products, see them below.

4. ASOS own brand

This is fast becoming one of my favourite brands. The clothes are amazing quality and the price is equally as impressive. The variety in office wear, as well as casual wear, is brilliant. My basket is always full of products from ASOS own brand and I’m pretty sure they cater for all sizes, shapes and heights.

5. Skinnydip

This brand is so unique, their bags brighten up any outfit and the other accessories they have are so fun. Some of the products are slightly pricey but I’m yet to come across another brand who offers these sort of designs. I’m a massive fan of their bags and I’m looking forward to treating myself to some to go with my office outfits.

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at some of the ASOS products and brands that I’m loving at the moment. If you know any brands that you think will sell some office wear that I’ll like then please let me know as I’m always on the look out.

Thank you for reading,

Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

Heya!

For anyone who saw my ‘Mini Superdrug Haul’ you would have seen I purchased the Lash Sensational mascara by Maybelline and I’d heard such good things about it.

I’ve been using this for about a week and I am so impressed, my holy grail mascara was Benefit Rollerlash and I wasn’t sure I’d ever find another mascara that worked as well as on my lashes. Lash sensational has a similar applicator however it has a different length bristles which makes it a lot easier to get to the root of the eye lashes. The formula is amazing too, jet black and thick enough to add volume as well as length.

For £7 I am so glad I tried this mascara out and I can tell it won’t be leaving my make up bag for a long while.

Let me know if you guys have found any similar mascaras that you think work as well as this one.

Wedding Update #3

440 days to go! The past couple of weeks have been super exciting in Wedding world, we’ve gotten so much finalised and I also had another Wedding dress fitting. My dress is being made from scratch but there is another one which is really similar that I try on. I don’t want to give anything away about the dress but I absolutely love it and it’s nothing like what I thought I’d choose. It’s been soo long since my last fitting that I almost forgot what the dress looked like, but it did not disappoint, I just cannot wait to see mine once it’s been made (which will be on my August appointment).

The save the dates are out too, they are absolutely amazing and I’m so happy with the way they came out. I’ve received so many text messages over the past week with compliments from other people too. What I love best is that it doesn’t give away too much about the big day, its relatively neutral and thats what I thought was best, it leaves a lot to the imagination as to what the Wedding will be like.

The final update is that I’ve bought my bridesmaid dresses, they’ve been bought online and are due to be delivered next week so I’m really looking forward to seeing them in real life. I’ve sent pictures to my bridesmaid’s and they absolutely love them which is always a bonus, there is quite a few adjustments I want to make to them, but thats the bonus of having an amazing dress maker.

Thanks for reading,
