As it’s National Cupcake week and I love a good cake, I thought I’d share some of the cupcake-themed likes with you!

Fancy smelling like a Snickerdoodle cupcake? I can just imagine how delicious this body scrub by Bungalow Bath and Body* will leave my skin smelling, love making (and eating) Snickerdoodle cupcakes!

Washi tape *and* cupcakes? Yes please!! This cupcake washi tape*is on my ‘must buy’ list for sure.

Other cupcakey things:

  • If you’re looking to print your own cupcake decorations, there’s a fab selection in this Tip Junkie list
  • If you love eating cupcakes, the wonderfully talented Lucy (who I have known a long time!) runs the amazing Heaven is a Cupcake. She won the University of Hertfordshire’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award 2012 and she deserves this and so much more!

Have you seen any cupcake-themed things that’ve caught your eye recently? Maybe you have made or designed something cupcakey… please share if you have!!

Birthday loveliness

Thank you for the lovely birthday wishes, it’s strange to think that I am no longer in my 20s!

On my birthday I had a yummy breakfast of waffles with chopped banana, maple syrup, and sprinkles! Very indulgent, but it only comes once a year, right?

I then had a very relaxing afternoon before getting ready for a nice meal and a get-together with some of my lovely friends. Five of us had food at Pho in Brighton and then went onto the pub where others soon joined us.

I never expect any gifts from people, I’m not really that kind of girl who expects a Mulberry handbag. However, I was super lucky and received some wonderful gifts which were very well thought-out. That’s what really mattered to me, that people made the effort to get me things that they thought I would appreciate, that would be totally me. Alongside these spoils I also received some money towards my new Winter coat (a lush duffle coat from Topshop). I feel so lucky and loved, which are both feelings that I struggle with. I will one day explain why, but at the moment it’s too difficult to come to terms with. Anyhow, I’m sure you’d like to see what I received:

Aren’t I lucky? And if you look closely, you’ll see there are presents which tie up with some of the things on my list to do in the next year!

I know I’m more than lucky. I am learning to love my new life, and I have some great people in it.

What Is Project Life?

what is project life

When I told people that I would be doing Project Life from my 30th birthday, many of my friends (most of which are non-scrapbookers by the way) asked what on earth it was! So I thought I’d give you a bit of a run down today, and share with you some of my favourite Project Life products and ‘artists’ as and when I find them, so that you can be inspired too.

Autumn Days When The Grass Is Jewelled….

autumn days wishlist

OK, so maybe Autumn (or as our friends in the USA call it, Fall) isn’t upon us yet, but with children going back to school this week many of us are starting to look towards the cooler seasons.
I thought I’d share with you some of my favourite Autumnal themed things that I’ve seen around on the internet lately.

Make/Bake: Oreo Treats!

I first saw these on Pinterest and thought I’d give them a go. I was super glad to have done so. I used to make these for my computer club when I was a teacher, although now I just enjoy them at home! They were originally from this blog, but I altered the recipe slightly, removing the butter as I found it didn’t make much difference in my opinion. Plus mine don’t look as stylish or well-shot! Haha.

Anyway, here’s how I make mine:
