Glad everyone seemed to enjoy my baking posts, please do let me know if you make anything I’ve posted! It’s also nice to see an influx of baking posts in blogworld, I love finding and trying new recipes…I’m now on the lookout for something for Valentines day as it has been requested I make something for work!
The cheesecake and cupcakes were a hit last night, the cupcakes especially…by the end of the night I had lost count of the amount of times they had been recommended and complimented (that sounds really big headed, non?).
It was nice to get out, and meet all the people that work at the surgeries; I’m still new enough not to have met everyone. It was also good, and a personal triumph for me to go somewhere so crowded and un-familiar! The Doctor who’s house we went to is so lovely and her house is just breathtaking.

I wore my “Paprika” shift dress from ASOS, having purchased it to wear with something under it for now, I realised it looked hideously bulky, but layering with a cardigan over it and a belt looked much better


I never really *do* belts, I always take them off after half an hour or so, but this one was comfortable so I’m going to look for some similar.
I’ve also started taking more interest in my hair…it started at the end of last year with wearing it down and in it’s natural state, and over the last few days I’ve started experimenting with my ancient straighteners and I think I’m getting the hang of it. Normally I only wear it straight if Mum does it for me. I am hair hopeless.

Today Mum and I are heading in to Bristol for some serious shopping! It’s been a long time coming and we have been saving up for ages. I’m hoping to get a few key pieces for Spring and maybe some little treats.




I have serious love for this blouse!

What are you up to this weekend? Have a good one! xxx

  1. Glad the baking went down well and you enjoyed yourself.
    Belts are awesome…though I’m struggling to find another one that is as wearable as the one I currently use.

    I have a Topshop gift card to spend this weekend…still struggling to find anything to spend it on though. Any suggestions welcome.

    Have fun shopping. xx:)

  2. Have fun shopping in Bristol. I only end up shopping by accident, sort of find bits when I’m not looking, but if I try to shop I end up coming home empty handed. Silly me. Loving your baking posts of late. Two great looks πŸ™‚

  25. I can see why you have serious love for that blouse – it’s gorgeous. The colours of your outfit in the first photo go together beautifully with your hair. The dress, the crocheted top, your tights and your hair are ale lovely. I like your facial expressions too. Have a wonderful time in Bristol with your mum! I may have to do some shoveling or maybe chopping of sleet, slush, ice and snow. It seems we are getting a lot of that sort of thing this winter. Your mention of Spring brought a smile.

  41. Ooh I love your blouse!

    I never really know what to do with my hair… really wish I could do french braids, I think they’re just adorable (:

    Have a nice weekend m’dear!

  42. I really struggle with belts – I know they can add so much to an outfit but they just never look quite right on me and I never feel comfy with them on.

    You’re looking amazing in both outfits but I absolutely love the second one.

  43. So many baking posts recently, and they all look so good! I have to go downstairs and get a snack nearly every time I see one!
    I love the blouse πŸ™‚

  44. Love the dress it really suits you xx

  45. Love your outfit in the first pic, the colours are fab.



  46. I think you look very pretty with your hair down! The colour of the dress is lovely.

    Hope you let us see what you purchased. x

  47. that blouse is very pretty, and I love the colour of your dress at the top xo

  48. You look stunning in the blouse and jeans!
    I’m not surprised your cupcakes were so popular – they looked very tasty.

    I hope you enjoyed your shopping trip.

  49. Glad the goods you baked went down well! I need to post more of my recent baking adventures soon too. I love baking posts πŸ™‚ if you could post cupcakes/cookies/muffins without them getting turned into crumbs we should so do a baking package swap!

    Gorgeous party outfit, and hair looks lovely – the colour comes out even more when its straight.

    loves xxx

  50. the blouse is so cute! love its sheerness

  51. Great color on the dress! It looks really pretty with the belt; you should definitely “do” them more often. πŸ˜€

  52. Aww I hope you had a great time shopping with your mum πŸ™‚ and if you do a valentines themed bake please do share! πŸ˜€ xx

  53. Those pants are so cute! I think that you should wear skinnier belts that aren’t so stiff, then it would cinch the waist with no bulk, because you look adorable in that outfit!!!

  54. love the outfit! i cann see why you love the blouse!

  55. I adore your outfit! I’m loving the leggings

    Great post. Thanks for sharing!
