Fatshionologie - Second hand

My previous post here explains all about this challenge, what a blog hop is, and how you can get involved! 

This months theme was second hand....

Dress - Emma's Blog sale
Cardigan - Primark
Shoes - Primark

Well half way through the month and i finally get this post up. With moving and job hunting this just wasn't a priority (sorry!). The link will run until the end of the month, but feel free to add a previous post to the blog hop. 

So onto the outfit, i love blog sales, they are a great way of getting new pieces for your wardrobe and often they are bits you wanted but sold out before you chance to get (cheeky plug, my blog sale is here) this dress caught my eye because the shape is right up my street and i love a floral. I also like the length, i am going through a midi love in at the moment,  i think i am finally growing up and have got out of that wearing dresses to short you can see my knickers phase; my mother will be pleased.

Plus North: Friday

Cardigan - Primark
Shoes - Primark

I was a bad blogger and forgot to get pictures of my Friday outfit, i got back to my hotel room, and just got into my jammies, it wasn't until i had half my make up off that i remembered i didn't take photos. In all fairness i probably look better in these pictures then i did on the night. I got ready in 15 minutes (quite the record i feel) and had just sat for a 3 hour tattoo, so i wasn't tip top. 

Emma had organised for us to go to Cosmos for dinner, it was a very fancy all you can eat buffet (i've just discovered we have one in Reading) and she had little good bags for us which had us squealing with delight. My dress was custom made by a lady on Etsy, she has the most amazing fabrics. Charlie has a bandanna in this print, i can't wait to wear them together. 

That is all for this post, but i still have two more to come....

Bakerdays - Cake through your letterbox

I think i have reached the pinnacle of blogging, i don't see how it can get any better than this, cake to my door? this fatty was beyond chuffed, i don't think i've been quite as excited for something to arrive in a while.

The lovely people at Bakerdays let me choose a design for my cake*, I love the Nightmare Before Christmas so i popped over a design and hey presto it arrived looking perfect on my cake. It was almost too pretty to eat.

It comes in a lovely tin and in the box you also get a candle, a balloon and party blower, everything you could need for a celebration.

I got a chocolate cake, which was scrummy. My parents enjoyed a slice and said how tasty it was. The icing to cake ratio is just right.

I think this would make a lovely gift for someone, who wouldn't love a cake through their letterbox? They do personalised birthday cakes, Halloween cakes and even cupcakes, the choices are endless.
