Keep Calm Have A Cupcake

Hello Hello! How are we all?
I thought I would share with you my cupcakes, that I made a couple of weeks back.
I saw Milly's lovely cupcakes and the how to create- post, and thought I would join in on the cupcake madness! I'm so pleased many of us are baking, its so much more fun then buying cupcake mixes already made up! How many more times am I going to say cupcakes? ;)
It was my first attempt, with no help may I add! Made all from scratch, they came out pretty well.
Not to perfection, but they were absolutely yummy!!
I am planning on making more, if you would have any interest in them let me know and il pop a post up of my next creations. Thanks for looking :)

I have been sent a couple of items from Shop at TW.
for those who have never heard of them, They are an online fashion store that sells unique,cute, Taiwan clothes.
I love anything unique, vintage, or floral..and they fit the mark perfectly.

The packaging.
As both items of clothing are quite thin and light weight, they came in a large envelope, with bubble wrap,
both protected in plastic sleeves.
Along with a business, contact card. Pweety!

My Favorite was this floral skirt..

A mini rara skirt, with a leather buckle which does stretch around the waist.

Look at the pretty floral pattern!

This skirt fits perfectly on me.

On to a dress, with waist coat..
This dress is a size 8, it came up quite tight on me so I would opt for a size bigger then normal.

Up close detail of the cuffs

A gorgeous pattern

This is the waist coat that goes with the dress, I must admit i prefer the dress by its self, but it does look pretty with too!

You will see photo's of me wearing these items soon in a up coming photo shoot.
My verdict on shop at tw:
I love this store, it has a wide range of fashionable clothes that meet your desires
reasonable prices, and great customer service!
Go check them out!

Lauren Conrad inspired - Nail of the day

My asos order came this morning,containing this lovely nail paint by ciate. Blue isn't normally a colour I opt for, but as I was browsing the asos sale, I came across this, and the name made me buy it....
Lauren :) a nail paint inspired by Lauren Conrad herself. I really like it, it makes a change from the normal colours I paint my nails (pink mostly) She did set a trend with this, but what do you think? would you ever wear blue nail polish?

My winter wants for 2010

It's the time of the year where you clear out your wardrobe of maxi dresses and shorts to make way for jumpers and cardigans. Goodbye summer, hello autumn and winter!
I have put together a few items I'm wanting this year. Every year I buy a new coat/jacket, along with a new scarf and gloves.

Knee high socks
This is a new fashion trend, and I must admit I'm loving it.
As seen above pixie is rocking those socks! it gives the outfit a cute girlie edge.
It may be cold, so its better to cover up with a jumper dress that sits just above the knees to keep you snug and warm.

Floral wellies
Snow in the north is quite deep and lasts for a few weeks, so wellies is a major must have.
I like any floral designs.

Republic bat wing jumper
I'm really loving bat wing top's and Jumpers at the moment. This knitted jumper looks perfect for summer and would team up with a pair of military boots that I'm in the middle of purchasing

Boohoo boots
Every year I purchase a new pair of 'fake uggs' if that's what you like to call them, I do not have the money to splurge out on a real pair, even tho I would love to. These boohoo boots have a fur edge, which I have never bought, but thinking of doing so this year.

Boohoo knitted Cardigan
Any knitted cardigan is a must have winter want for me, I prefer grey to most colours, this boo hoo cardigan is perfect, I love the buttons and collar.

Boohoo military style jacket
I'm on the search for my 2010 winter jacket, I'm thinking of going military, if I do, this is the style I'm after.

Topshop jumper dress
I love love love jumper dresses, especially this one from topshop, Ive been after a 'Love' slogan jumper dress for a while, this paired with knee high socks and military boots makes a great outfit.

Topshop snood
Snood's are more popular then regular scarfs recently, I love them. You just pop them over your head and your good to go! this is my favorite winter want.

New look mittens
I'm loving mittens, they just look so cute, of course I will own a pair of gloves this year but I must get these! Cream or grey? decisions decisions!

New look beanie hat
How pretty is this hat? I'm thinking of getting a cream coat to go with this, its just adorable, I love beanie hats. Yorkshire is incredibly cold, I'm used to London weather which is slightly warmer, as it is a city and not so open. So a hat is essential

Republic knitted jumper dress
Finally another jumper dress, yes I'm obsessed with them, but they go perfectly with black leggings or even jeggings.
A plain jumper dress like this with a few accessories, ugg style boots, is a great combination.

So there we have just some of my winter wants, I need to go shopping soon, as it is so cold!
I will show you all what I have purchased.
What is your must have winter item for 2010?
Let me know!
