Pretty sure summer is here now. This is today's attire. Also if you have flickr...and even if you don't I suppose, here is mine: :)

I think I've just about finally updated this blog with all the exciting happenings of my life. There is a piece of prose somewhere that I wanted to upload but I'm not sure where I saved it, so that will happen at a later date.
Sorry if i've completely spammed your dashboard, but I did have a few complaints that I hadn't posted in ages, so it's their fault, okay? :p
I will try and update more often from now on.
I'll leave you with this photo, of El Hefe thinking he's a people.


These are some headphones I got for my birthday, from my good friend Yogi. I love them so much that I designed my whole outfit around them :)

Headphones - Panasonic.
T-shirt - The Cramps, Ebay.
Cardigan - hand-me-down from my sister-in-law.
Nailvarnish - Rimmel 805 grey matter.
Belt - Topshop.
Skirt - made by meeeee.


I made some lanterns :)


Last Saturday, the 15th, was my 22nd birthday. I woke up to sunshine, spent the day decorating cakes, and then I went to the beach for a small BBQ with some close friends. It was delicous and fun. After that I went out and got rather drunk, and woke up to a friendly face.
I took photos of some of my presents, including some patisserie goodies, some books, a tailor's dummy and some stamps.


So for my mum's 60th birthday, we organised a surprise party. And what is the point in a party without cake? One of my aunts is allergic to chocolate, and I didn't want to just do a plain sponge, so I made a strawberry sponge cake. I found a recipe online and altered it to my tastes and preferences, and I will one day either post it here, or in my future recipe book (which WILL happen)
I first did a test run with some little buns in my new silicone cases! Re-usable and such pretty colours. Mmm don't they just make your mouth water. I decorated them with cream icing, pink sugar and strawberry hearts (look how dirty my apron has gotten recently!)
Then was time for the cake! I filled the middle with strawberry jam, and cream and strawberries. I then put it in the fridge. Later, I decorated with cream icing, strawberry hearts, icing sugar and pink sugar.
I don't think I've ever been more proud of a cake. It's bloody beautiful, even if i do say so myself..


Strawberries on pancakes, a marvellous way to start the day :)


I saw neapolitan cookies for sale on Etsy, but couldn't find any sort of recipe online, so I thought I'd experiment and try to make my own. They turned out pretty well, but there are a few tweaks I need to make before they're perfect. Next time...


Kayley finally got back from her 5 months in the French Alps, so we decided a trip to Bournemouth was in order to see Charli. We bought some beautiful cakes to take as a little present. It was good timing as well because an event called Block Party was on, which involved paying about £15 and you got entry into loads of bars and clubs. It was wayyyyyy fun, as you can see!
