#Toastofthetown: Cupcake Decorating @ The Copthorne Hotel

For as long as I can remember I have enjoyed baking and decorating cakes, and I always thought I was pretty good at it. In hindsight I can bake a pretty good vanilla cupcake and decorate it with vanilla frosting. Not very creative really. So when I was invited along to The Copthorne Hotel by Joe Blogs to attend a cupcake decorating afternoon, I couldn’t say no.  We were lucky enough to be under the expert hands of Julie from Julie’s Cake House, a local cake business who specialise in beautifully decorated cakes and even decorating classes. Julie was amazing…

Bedroom Snippets.

Since moving back into my parents house i’ve become a little obsessed with making my bedroom look as homely as possible. I think its due to when I was living in a student house I was really limited to what I was allowed to do to make my room nice. But now back home i’m able to hang things on the wall, re-arrange all the furniture and re-decorate, I have been in my element.  For me, my bedroom is like my haven, I can lock myself up in my room away from everything and just relax. I think having a…

Feeling Fruity

As of late I have grown a weird and somewhat wonderful obsession with food, mostly fruit, related clothing an accessories. It all started with me getting my hands on a second-hand watermelon print midi skirt. A skirt that if I could I would wear every single day of my life as it makes me feel amazing (which is rare for me at the moment). I’ve a new found love for fun and colourful clothing especially those with food prints on them. I’ve even recently bought myself some pear print fabric to make myself my own version of my watermelon skirt,…

Hillary’s Crafting Challenge: How To Make A Lampshade.

Back in March I took part in an amazing event with Hillary’s thanks to the team at Joe Bloggers, which you can read about here. At the event we were told there would be a craft competition for us to enter at a later date where we would be sent some of Hillary’s fabric and have to make something out of it. I must admit at the event I didn’t do ALL that well at the sewing, so I thought this competition would be a good opportunity for my to practice my crafting skills a little, all with the chance…

Summer Style With Jones The Bootmaker

Summer is that one time of year where I struggle with fashion and having no idea what to wear. With black tights and layers are being comfort blanket, when the weather starts to heat up my confidence goes out the window. My biggest issue is staying cool whilst still feeling relatively ‘put together’ without having to worry about how pale and chunky I think my legs are. Recently i’ve been thinking more and more about ways I can stay stylishly cool on those odd warmer days we are getting here in the UK.  On hot summery days I always struggle…
