Sunshine is the best shine.

hello you lovely lot! Today I wanted to share a bit of Summer inspiration and have a little chin wag, if that's alright with you? ;) Basically this past year I've been in this horrible nasty on going slog of silly little things called GCSEs. (which I am sure you are all aware of, if you aren't they are end of secondary school exams, ergh right!) Anyways with that being said I'm back, I've found my mojo and want to spend this Summer writing and pressing publish on blog posts. Therefore, right now as a little teaser (just kidding, I have a guilty pleasure with Pintrest * and you NEED this app in your life) I shall share a few of my ideas and inspiration for the coming months, hope you enjoy!

Nothing like a cosy summer night:



If you really want to get creative with your cookie cutter creations, use letters to spell your guests' names out of melon or watermelon to use as drink markers and place holders.:
Let your hair down this summer and enjoy time outdoors. It's the prefect way to spend time with friends and get fit while having fun.:


Honestly love this movie Audrey Hepburn Breakfast at tiffanys:

can't wait for 'roadtrips' this summer!:

Winter Months...

Hey guys how have you been? I hope things are going good! Today I decided to give you all some autumn/winter inspiration. I am always uber excited for sweater weather, can't believe its already here! I haven't got many sweaters though which is kinda sad :/ but cosy days, hot chocolate, movies and everything wintery are going to be things we can look forward too...

P.s I'll try my hardest to write more posts but its a little hard juggling everything at the moment.

Love you

'No Ordinary Cupcakes' The Rainbow Cupcake...

Hey lovelies so today I baked some different cakes and wanted to show you how to make them...they are rainbow cupcakes. Can life get any better? I don't think so :) enjoy!

Ingredients (makes 12):
125g unsalted butter
125g self raising flour
125g caster sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 tbsp. milk
4 bottles food colouring (red, green, blue and yellow)
12 cupcakes cases

First preheat the oven to 200 degrees
Mix together the sugar and butter until pale and fluffy.
Beat the eggs in one at a time adding a little flour in each time until the ingredients are mixed.
Add the vanilla essence and mix. Then add the milk 1 tablespoon at a time mixing after each addition.
Divide the mixture into 6 bowls:
In Bowl 1 - Add half a cap of red colouring
In Bowl 2 - Add half a cap of red and half a cap of yellow
In Bowl 3 - Add half a cap of yellow
In Bowl 4 - Add half a cap of green
In Bowl 5 - Add half a cap of blue
In Bowl 6 - Add half a cap of blue and half a cap of red
Mix colouring into each mixture after adding.
Divide the purple mixture between the 12 cases. Repeat with the others, so you would divide the blue mixture in to the 12 cupcake cases and then the green and then the yellow and so on.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes.
This is what they should look like...
And if you wanted to add butter icing see this blog post, and I just crushed some chocolate coasted sweets and sprinkled them on top of the cakes.
Let me know if you like these cupcake posts?
P.s Sorry it took so long for me to post again :)

Hello Strangers...

Well this has been a very long time indeed, so recently I have been out enjoying the summer and haven't found time to sit down and write on my blog. However, I have found some time now and wanted to have a ickle catch up with you all. I had my acrylics done at the start of the holidays and they have lasted so well, at the moment I them black (hard core right.) but in this photo they are a lovely colour by accessorize (of all places) and it's called 'first dance'.
Oh and I did go on holiday but it wasn't to sunny :/ I have my fingers crossed that next year I can go somewhere that is guaranteed hotness. Where have you all been on holiday this year? Did you go somewhere cold or hot? Also I can't forget I made some rainbow cupcakes the other day and am currently writing up the post for my cupcake series :) I hope you all will enjoy that one. Basically, I only wanted to say sorry for not posting anything for while. However I'm back now, for good, at least until I loose inspiration again. Lets hope that doesn't happen for a bit though, I'd love to know what you have been up too over the past weeks?
Lots of love

'No Ordinary Cupcakes' Simple Butter-Icing ...

Hey everyone, hope you have had a good week! Today I wanted to show you how to make lovely butter icing, which you can make in any colour but I wanted to sow you how to make baby pink this time, anyway lets jump in to it...

You will need:
100g Butter
250g of icing sugar

Make sure the cakes have cooled down for at least 5-10 minutes (this is because the butter icing can just melt off the cake, if the cake is too warm)
 Beat the butter and icing sugar together until light and creamy
Next, add some vanilla
Then add your chosen food colouring

To ice the cakes, fill a piping bag with the butter icing and make a swirl in the middle 

Then fill in the rest of the cake (remember to be generous with the icing)
You can just leave them as they are, but why not be creative and
decorate with sprinkles, stars or any other decorations you might have!

I hope you enjoyed this post, let me know if you try this recipe out and if you liked it?

Summery Sundays...

Hey lovelies, how are you all? Finally the summer holidays are here and we can now focus on getting great tans rather than horrible homework :) so yesterday I went out to a really cute café in my town with my family and wanted to take you all with me but could only do that through these photos! Let me know if you enjoy these kind of posts...

Gifts for anytime of the year No.3 DIY Hearts in a Jar...

Hey everyone I hope your all having a great day! I thought I would show you how to make this super cute jar to either put in your bedroom or give as a gift (It would be amazing for a person you care a lot for), I hope you enjoy....

You will need:
Love Hearts (or any sweets in general, preferably heart shaped ones)
Mason jars or some cheap glass jars like I have I bought mine from Tesco's
Skewers x3
Pastel card for the arrow and X and O
Sticky tape

First to make the shooting arrow you need to cut the two ends of the skewers off and cut the pastel paper into a heart and a feather shape like this...
Once you have the two pieces ready, stick them on to one skewer, the heart and feather will be for the shooting arrow then the X's and O's will be on the other two skewers. To make the house shape look like a feather just cut to the centre to create something like this..

To make the X's and O's you just need to draw an X and an O on to the piece of card with a pencil and cut the shapes out with scissors.
Then pour your chosen sweets in to the glass jar. Then use sticky tape to attach the arrow to the jar and use ribbon if you want to embellish it even more!

Your finished product should look like this, I think anyone would be really happy to receive this as a gift!
Let me know if you try this DIY!
