Favourite Things


1. Make-up Brush lovin'. I am not a make-up girl and I never will be but when you get a tool that makes your easy make-up look just that bit better with minimal effort I am there. I love brushes, excluding the odd feeling that I am in fact, painting my face. Seen above is a mix of the Body Shop, Forever21 and the infamous Real Techniques core collection. I find the face brushes my biggest savior, it really makes my foundation last longer and saves that streaky tide mark, which, I ashamedly have had more than once. I actually love the Forever21 ones, they were awfully cheap and it gives me the tools to mess around with eye make-up- aka practice my panda/ Taylor momsen black eyes.


 2. Casual bird watching. My garden, it is bird free. Full of 5 killer cats though. However, Stuart lives with two pups that the birds seem indifferent about so I actually get to see wildlife. Here's a blue tit... ahhh, tit... funny.


3. Made some twee cupcakes. I love my new piping nozzle that makes this grass effect, it was originally purchased to make a cake for my granddad's birthday- he likes bowls, grass piping nozzle seemed logical. Anyway, before I ruined an 80th birthday cake figured I should try it out. Made chocolate cake soil too- commitment to twee! Also, surprise:


Tony couldn't leave me alone for a minute. Creeper going to creep! (And kill birds)

 Happy Sunday everyone!

With love from,

    1. Aw Andrea, they were very simple. I got the pots in Lakeland and just used a basic chocolate cake with a basic frosting. I cut the tops off once cooked to make the crumbs for the soil!

  4. I'm rubbish at makeup brushes (I just have one huge one for buffing on foundation powder) and then a foundation brush which I actually use for applying bronzer..I'm sure I'm doing it all wrong but I really like how you store your brushes - great idea!

  6. I love that cute tea pot thing that you have your brushes in. It's so vintage looking. And also I can NOT believe those are cupcakes! They look like little flowers. :)
