Valentines cupcakes

I made lovey dovey cupcakes with the boy on valentines day. How special :P he never wants to bake with me, but he wanted to on valentines. He really enjoyed decorating too!!
Mine are mostly pink,(above) the redish ones are the boyfriends. He decided to make a hangman for one of them, and the others are really chocolaty!!
Did everyone have a nice valentines day? I hope you did!
I made the frosting just right. I followed the instructions out of my new hummingbird cupcake book! easy steps and there's so many more id like to try, so watch this space for more baking posts :) I hope you like them!

Fancy a cupcake anyone?

Valentines photo shoot

So two Saturdays ago I had another photo shoot. Two in less then a month, go me!
Since valentines day was approaching i thought of a lovely idea, why not have a valentines photo shoot? So I bought rose petals, a rose, a lovely rose head band (that's actually a brides maid head band) too pretty! :)
and also a lovely red rose dress. Which may I add was a last minute buy, my original one hadn't arrived in the post. So the day before the shoot I went on search for a 'valentines looking' dress. It turns out this was the perfect one and fits the shoot perfectly, it is from river island, on sale from £30 to £1o!
The rose petals on the dress fit in so well with everything else! I also put a few curls in my halo hair extensions this time, instead of poker straight. I did this using a standard straighting iron. It was pretty easy!

I hope you have a Happy Valentines day what ever your doing, I made some valentines cupcakes today and will do the same tomorrow, I wanted to make heart shaped cookies but could I find any cookie cutters? No! :(
Me and the boyfriend will be spending a lovely day together and in the evening getting a take away of my choice.. I'm quite excited :)

The Body Shop Haul

Just before Christmas I made an online order at the body shop, I kind of felt like I was cheating on Lush at the time (I think I have a lush problem, but who doesn't :P)

I was spoilt for choice as there was 20% off off everything! I don't know if you saw my blog post,letting you all know about the little offer, I hope you got some lovely goodies too.This is what I got....

I got a cranberry bath lily, these are inexpensive and last a while so I always pick mine up from the body shop.
A strawberry gift set, including shower gel and body lotion.
My favorite smell is the scent of strawberries!

So I had to get this, I remember my sister always used to buy strawberry scented bath products from the body shop when I was little, I used to love the strawberry soap but forgot to pick one up this time. The shower gel is what I'm currently using, smelling very sweet indeed. Then after my shower I apply the lotion and I smell lovely if i do say so myself ;)

Coconut foaming bath. I also love the smell of coconuts, I bought a 400ml bottle so it will last me quite a while, this bubble bath leaves my bathroom smelling lovely, it has a strong scent.
Grape seed glossing serum. A best seller on the body shop, I read all the great reviews on the site and had to purchase, it smells lovely, but I wouldn't expect anything less from the body shop, and it leaves my ends glossy and healthy, highly recommended!

Coco butter, this smells Delicious, and so moisturizing! I have used most of it up already, I especially use this after exfoliating and before fake tanning. Then the day after I fake tan to make it last and look more natural.
Almond shower gel, I love the smell of almonds, and I have used a fair amount of this also. It lathers up really well and leaves skin baby soft.

At the moment the body shop have a special valentines offer so head over to there website. You will get 30 % off your order if you join there facebook, plus free delivery! so go treat a loved one, or yourself :)
