Good little housewife

Posted in Home.

I very, very rarely bake. I’m a pretty good cook and can knock together an evening meal without much fuss. But baking? Hhmmm.
Well, when I woke up to torrential rain, no water due to a burst pipe and a horribly debilitating head cold, I felt a strong desire to bake super sweet cupcakes. So that’s what I did!
Check out my cute vintage kitchen stuff…

After much faffing and a wobbly moment when I realised I needed the bowl again but had no water to wash it with (solution – an antibacterial wipe and vigorous drying), they came out like this…

Result! Then for the fun part, and what better colour for cupcakes than pink?

I had no piping bag, so settled for spreading with a spoon. And yes, I did lick the beaters! 🙂

Rock, roll and Monday mornings

Posted in Daily Outfits.

H&M tee, Topshop shorts, Primark tights, ASOS pixie boots, thrifted necklace

First of all, let me apologise for the messy bedroom. I’ll tidy it later, promise! 🙂
On to more important things. Monday mornings usually mean grey skies, traffic jams and gloomy faces, but today I took matters into my own hands and cheered myself up with a highly inappropriate outfit. I’m a real rock girl at heart – I love grungy tees and ripped jeans, but usually only wear them for gigs. But why not for the office? Well, probably because the shorts and too short and the tights are too sheer, hence the reason I actually wore my denim pencil skirt instead of the shorts. Never mind!

Monday blues

Thrifted jumper, Primark blouse, Thrifted jeans, Primark boots

I originally tried this outfit with a mustard yellow knitted tank for a 60s vibe, but the fabrics just didn’t sit nicely together and the whole thing looked a little cheap. So I popped on this cute nautical knit from my car boot haul the other weekend, and voila! A laidback look perfect for a gloomy Monday.
How are you all dealing with the clocks going back? I love the darker nights – they remind me that Halloween, Bonfire night and Christmas (my three all time favourite celebrations) are just around the corner! 🙂

Dance the night away

New Look vest, thrifted skirt, Primark tights, thrifted shoe boots, thrifted ring, thrifted bangles

I had a few girlfriends over for drinks and X Factor, followed by a night on the town. I love to go out and dance – there’s nothing like a good tune, an Amaretto and lemonade and a little space on a packed dancefloor to throw some moves.
I went for a floral theme for last night’s outfit – the tights have a rose print which isn’t quite clear from the pictures. I kept the accessories simple and let the prints do the talking.

Classic with a twist

Posted in Daily Outfits.

Gap jeans, thrifted blouse, Primark cardigan, Primark boots, thrifted hat, thrifted bangle

It’s wet and grey here today – the kind of day that calls for a hat! I built today’s outfit around this beige knitted delight, found after a rummage in a charity shop bin. I wanted to keep it pretty classic – shirt, jeans, boots, but with a twist. The high necked shirt is a wardrobe favourite and looks really vintage, while the amazing boots toughen up the whole outfit.
I’m going out with friends for drinks and dancing later tonight, so another outfit post later! 🙂
