not the way i do love you.


(WEARING: "cutie" necklace - 99p shop ; cardigan - primark ; top - h&m ; belt - primark ; skirt - charity shop.)

Not feeling very confident today, so excuse my face/pose etc. Today I've baked pretty much aaaaallll day. I wore the vintage pinny that Kayley got me for Christmas, which didn't really go with my outfit, but it sure brightened up such a rainy day. I made plain and chocolate cupcakes with orange curd centres and orange icing. Yummers!






I also made some science biscuits as inspired by this picture. My brother is a science teacher and is having his 25th birthday do tomorrow. I thought these would be rather suitable. I am yet to decorate them, and I'm a bit worried about it as I'm pretty messy... they're definitely not going to turn out as cute as the originals.

Also, along the lines of baking etc, I think you should all go visit my friend Mel's blog. She's super, bakes yummy stuff AND she's funny. What more do you want? Go now.

Finally, I saw this video on someone's blog this morning (I've forgotten who's... I'm so sorry!) and fell in love. It's just so adorable.

  5. awwwww hun I really hope you feel better soon, it's a horrible feeling isn't it? I really hope you feel better soon, I definitely think the time of year has something to do with it, everything's so bleak after Christmas people tend to treat you with less kindness than you deserve.

    On the bright side your skirt is BEAUTIFUL! My friend used to have a dress and the skirt was almost exactly like that...she took it back because she didn't like it...to this day I still don't know what came over her...

  28. Cute outfit, missy. I want a skirt that shape.
    Those biscuits are too adorbs for words! And the cupcakes look delish. My cupcakes have been going horrid and rubbery since I've been using an electric whisk so I'm going to go back to doing it all with a wooden spoon. Time consuming but worth it. Plus it's a good work out!
    Hope you have a lovely weekend! x

Shes adorable xx
