The Bake Off: Jaffa Cakes

Warning: Extremely British, yet exciting, blog post ahead! 

Words cannot describe how much I love The Great British Bake Off. I honestly can't put my finger on what exactly I find so wonderful about it, but it's one of my favourite TV programmes of all time. With all the buzz surrounding GBBO, of course I had to jump on the bandwagon - this year I really wanted to feature a sort of Blog Series that followed the programme through the weeks. I may be mad, but welcome to my own version of The Bake Off as I introduce you to my new blogging baby... 

Each week I will be attempting the technical challenge that the bakers have to do, taking me well past my 20th Birthday and into my second year at University. Expect 100% honesty (you will see all of the success AND, no doubt, all of the failure), 100% effort (I'm not the best at baking, but I'm definitely going to try my hardest!), 100% eating (unless of course I deem my creation inedible!). 

FIRST WEEK: JAFFA CAKES!

The Top Ten: Festival Necessities

Having written about my experiences at V Festival earlier this week and with Reading/Leeds happening this weekend, what better post to write than and edit-style one all about my top 10 beauty-related things you need for a festival! I've got some of my go-to make up products for long wear, a few practical things and a few 'fun' things all in the mix but they all were absolute life savers last weekend...

The Highlights: V Festival 2016

You will have seen a lot about V Festival floating around on social media - if not you live under a rock - and therefore you will know that it was the weekend just gone. I am lucky enough to live merely 10 minutes away from Hylands Park in Chelmsford and therefore don't have to endure the camping and can enjoy the luxury of an actual roof over my head whilst still experiencing the live music... There was a fair amount of negativity surrounding the festival after Saturday night, purely thanks to Justin Bieber's shit not so great performance - safe to say he was pretty disappointing, especially since I have been converted into a 'fan' of music over the last 12 months or so. However, we won't be dwelling on the negatives of the festival on here (I am trying to create a positive space on the internet after all!) and I thought I'd share with you who really hit the nail on the head, who surprised and my all round highlights from the weekend!

The Top Ten: Holiday Beauty Essentials

Already the 'Holiday blues' are setting in. I arrived back from Croatia last night, hence the radio silence on here (I just hadn't had the time to schedule - plus I'm not that organised!!). What better way to reminisce about one of the most relaxing weeks, by talking all things beauty, particularly my top 10 items that HAD to be featured in my holiday make up bag!

The Review: Glasses Direct


Never in a million years would I have thought I could get a pair of prescriptions Sunglasses, as well as a new pair of glasses, all for £90, but when I came across Glasses Direct via social media I was astounded at the service. To be honest with you, I thought there was a catch and there were hundreds of secret charges, but oh, how I was wrong...!

The Outfit: Festival Vibes

 I've definitely found myself pushing my boundaries when it comes to new clothing and the main feature of this outfit post, the beautiful 'Lizzie' Crochet Bralet top* from Boutique of Molly, is certainly one of the more out-there pieces I've picked up for my wardrobe. Whilst it may not look exactly like it does on the model on their site, I have to admit I'm rather enjoying the whole festival-vibe and am highly considering wearing this to V Festival in a few weeks time!

The Experience: HomeSense Chelmsford Opening

I always lust after Pinterest-worthy homeware and I've finally managed to get my hands on some thanks to the new HomeSense that's opened in Chelmsford on the Riverside Retail Park (next to Staples!)... I always feel a little guilty when I buy bits and pieces like photo frames from larger companies (I like to shop local when it comes to cute little knick knacks, simply because I worked in a boutique homeware shop for 2.5 years!), however having talked to the staff yesterday and also seeing some beautiful hand crafted pieces from India, I have to admit I'm a little more into this idea than I initially thought.
