Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a good week. Here is my second "Week In Photos" blog post, and again with some Instagram pictures that I have taken and edited over the last week or so. I have been very busy with school work, as their is only two weeks to go which means a lot of studying for final exams and getting ready for next year. In my spare time I have been watching the Euro 2012, and, same old same old, England are out. What a bummer. I will defiantly keep on watching to see who wins though, as I have gotten quite into it! I've been reading Sophie Kinsella's book "Mini Shopaholic" which I am enjoying dearly. She is defiantly one of my favorite authors as she is very easy to read and is very girly and humorous. That is all for now and I will blog soon! xoxo

Cooking Blog • Diamond Jubilee Cupcakes

 Hello all! I hope everyone had an enjoyable long Jubilee weekend if you are in the U.K. or another part of the common the Commonwealth! If you did not celebrate the Jubilee I still hope you had a really good weekend! Up above you can see some over the top cupcakes that were specially made for the Jubilee
All you need to do to make yourself some, is use any cupcake flavor you want. My boyfriend and I chose to make blueberry flavored, but if you prefer a flavor more like chocolate, then that is perfectly fine as well. For the icing, we used plane icing sugar but instead of using water, we used some freshly squeezed lemon juice to make it a little more interesting. If you prefer using water go right ahead! We made three bowls of icing and made each icing have a different colour; one blue, one red and one we left its natural colour, white. These are, as you may know, the colour of the Union Jack. After, we covered each cake with the blue icing and left it too dry inside the fridge. After ten minute we took them out, and using a spoon and patients, created four white lines; verticallyhorizontally, and diagonally. After leaving them in the fridge for another ten minutes to harden, using the same method, we went over the white lines in the red icing.     There we go, Union Jack cupcakes! However, to make them look even more Jubilee styled, we added little crowns and multicolored flags in the middle. Hey presto! You are finished!
I hope you all enjoyed this post on our Diamond Jubilee cupcakes! Let me know if you like cooking posts now and again, and how your Jubilee weekend went! xoxo

Outfit Of The Day • Denim Stud

Hello my lovelies! Here is my most recent outfit of the day. I have to say, this has got to be my favorite outfit I have put together just because it looks so Rock n Roll! I did not want wear any light colored trousers because the jacket is very bright, so this is why I went for some dark blue jeggings. To go with my shoes, I put on some cute frilly socks because I felt plain socks looked a little out of place with the crazy look. My top is a simple white blouse which to me gives the look quite a 80's feel! Please do not forget to hype this look by clicking the hype button down below for my lookbook.nu! Thank you xoxo
