Say it with Cake.

cake cetera
 After a long day at work, what a surprise to come home to these absolutely delicious Macaroons, very kindly sent to me by the lovely Polly at Cake Cetera.  What an absolutely brilliant idea, say it with cake instead of flowers.  I have never tried a Macaroon before and for my very first taste of these little delights I was very impressed.  No one else in my house got a look in.  They really cheered me up today.
Cake Cetera don't just make macaroons they do an array of cupcakes, please check out their website http://www.cake-cetera.co.uk/shop/  they cater for all sorts of occasions.  Do you know someone who has just had a baby? Don't send them flowers, send them a bouquet of cupcakes!

I will definitely be taking full advantage of this wonderful service.

1940s Vintage Themed Wedding

Mid September already. Can't believe it.  Well, I suppose I have been missing in action this month.  September has brought a new job and has seen another best friends wedding.  My friends Kelsie and Jonny had a 1940s meets Festival themed wedding, Kelsie being a huge fan of anything vintage and their mutual love of music and festivals.     
Vintage, 1940s, Hell Bunny Retro

Kelsie was my bridesmaid back in 2008 so it was a complete honour to return the favour.

Invent the perfect Bath Soak - The Bathory

A couple of weeks ago I was approached by 'The Bathory' and asked if I would like to 'invent my own' bath soak.  Was feeling really under the weather so completely jumped at the chance.  

The Bathory; Oils;

'The Bathory started as a one-woman kitchen enterprise — whipping up fragrant concoctions for friends. We want to capture the fun and thrill of all that experimenting-in-the-kitchen, and translate it into a product that comes to life online.'

An afternoon of Makeup Gurus

Beauty; Guru;

I am sure I am not alone here - if I am lucky enough to have a Saturday at home, when the kids are busy with their activities and the hubby is away.   When the rain is lashing down outside I love to snuggle up in bed at 3 o'clock with a cup of tea, packet of chocolate digestives and my laptop.

Once.. Collection by Illamasqua

The new Illamasqua Collection 'Once' is now available to buy and has definitely left me drooling this afternoon.. With an Autumn wedding approaching, I will be popping some of these beauties in my shopping basket.  In particular the Vintage Metallix eyeshadow in the shades Courtier and Embellish.  They look super gorgeous.

I am returning to work after a 'career break' to raise my children next month too.  I think these lovelies would make me feel so much more confident..  any excuse eh?  

I adore Illamasqua, they never fail to disappoint me. I only wish the brand was more readily available in Aberdeen.
