Catchup and a spot of baking...

Hiya everyone :)

I haven't blogged for ages so I thought I'd do a lil' catchup post! I have my Easter holidays now for the next few weeks which is fab a break from school is much need! This week I'll also post a spring makeup tutorial for y'all!- a makeup tutorial finally! So, lets have a chat...:)

It is freezing in England at the moment and I'm so desperate for some sun I find my self streaming WeHeartIt for some tropical looking pictures. I am craving summer more than ever before, the smell of sunscreen, long hot days & nights, BBQs and sun tans. And most importantly summery makeup!- golden, yellow glittery eyeshadows and natural tanned beach bum looks. So for those of you who feel the same way as me here's some pictures to hopefully make you feel tropical for a second:




Now hows about some foody talk. Last week I decided to bake a cake! Well 2 cakes actually, a Lemon Drizzle and a Coffee Cake. So when I decided to make these to cakes I was expecting the end product to look something like this...


My cakes didn't quite end up looking quite THIS good but they still turned out pretty fab (bearing in mind I'm no where near the world's best at baking!) Also it's very important that when cooking you put your hair in the highest, sexiest bun possible (heavy sarcasm) here's my bun: 
Just make sure you don't forget you have your hair in this
amazing bun and go out the house like this or you may get some
weird looks (I am speaking from experiance) ;)

My cakes!
Lemon Drizzle

Coffee Cake

Not quite tea room standard but I tried! and they tasted pretty good :) If you would like to see a recipe for either of these cakes let me know in the comments down below.

Next up fashion! I have recently joined this website called 'Wantworthy'. It's a great website and the purpose of it is so if you see something (eg an item of clothing from Topshop) you can add it to your wantworthy list. It really helps me keep track of all the summer fashions and makeup that I need to start saving up for. You can even follow my wantworthy list if you like :) So go check it out, its great! 

Now for musicccc :D
The Way- Ariana Grande ft. Mac Miller
High Hopes - kodaline
Radioactive- Imagine Dragons (featured in the host trailer. Desperate to see this film!)
22- Taylor Swift












I hope you've enjoyed this fairly random post! Now for a week of revision, I swear it's never ending! Also look out for my tutorial in the coming week :) 
As you probably know if you read my posts regularly, I like to end these slightly random posts with a positive picture to make you smile this week...
