Let them eat cake

The follow up to my last post will be soon, I promise! Just been soooo busy lately! 
Here’s what I’ve been up to this weekend:

Cherry bakewell inspired....

... with added pink glitter (why not?)

Various blue creations and ones inspired 
by those sweets... are they called jazzles?

And of course some chocolately goodness

This week at work we’re raising money for Macmillian. I volunteered to make cupcakes but also said that I was more than happy to eat the cakes that others bring in too.... any excuse! Nom nom! J

Never having iced cakes before, I found it really tricky to get them in that awesome swirly pattern. But after a bit of practice, I finally got the hang of it:

Which of these are your favourites?

J'aime passionnément le mystère, parce que j'ai toujours l'espoir de le débrouiller...

This week I was contacted by someone and offered an amazing opportunity that was too good to pass up. I can’t say too much about it at the moment but am looking forward to sharing it with you all next week J

Cette semaine quelqu’un m’a contacté et m’a offert une occasion incroyable que je ne pourrais pas décliner. Actuellement je ne peux pas la révéler mais j’attends la semaine prochaine avec impatience car c’est cette semaine-là que je peux la partager avec vous J
Until then, I will leave you with a photo of what I received in the post soon afterwards... as a taste of what’s to come... ooo the mystery!

Jusque là, voici un photo pour vous faire allusion à ce que va se passer…Oh là là ! Le mystère !

Garlands, suspenders and festival longings…

A while ago, I returned some things to New Look and found myself receiving part of my refund on my card (my original form of payment) and some as a credit note. The credit note baffled me as none of my items were sales items -and I’d returned everything on time. I tried to argue my way out of it but the girl on the till was a bit hopeless so I just let it slide. I think I would have been less annoyed if she’d given me a voucher – but a piece of paper that looks like a receipt? Something that would be so easy to lose or throw away accidentally... 

Scared for its safety, I took another trip to New Look to make the most of it. 

Here’s what I bought:

I have always wanted to try suspender tights and seeing as they’re the same price everywhere else, I thought why not?

The garland was in the sale. It’s missing a lot of its greenery but I don’t mind. Some flowers on these styles of head bands are too fake looking for my liking - but these were doable. Sadly I didn’t have tickets to any of the recent - or up and coming – festivals. So this weekend I will be at mine watching the Reading highlights wearing my garland in tribute J
