Sweet treats for you

A short and easy post today that will show you a simple idea for a gift or even table decoration for a party or an event.

For any party, the decorations and table layout is key. And of course the food especially the sweet treats yummmmmmmmmmmmy! In terms of a gift, you sometimes want something different and unique to give to the person soooooo why not do...

Drum roll..... *drumming sounds*

Sweets in jars. Simple as it sounds ha!

Another nice thing about this is that it does not take long at all, just a few easy steps.

Holy fudge, that's goooooood!

So you may or may not know that whilst I was at Festival of Thrift on Saturday (if not you can read all about it here), I bought some delicious looking homemade fudge from Urban Fudge's stall.

I love fudge, it is one of my favourite sweet things on this planet.

Of course I bought four different flavours as they had an offer on so here are the fudges: Rocky Road, Millionaire, Salted Caramel and Honeycomb so I thought why not write a review on them.

Here is my 'Urban Fudge review'....

The Fully Monty review

Last night, my friend Mandi and I went to the theatre with Pimms and Needles to go and see the highly anticipated The Fully Monty.

I absolutely love the 1997 film version (if you haven't seen it you have to), it is hilarious so I was dead excited to go and see this performance.

And it did not disappoint me at all, here is why.

No7 Foundation Review*

You may or may not have read my post about the No7 Bloggers Event (read here) but if you did, then you will know I got a foundation as my free product, woooo.

Normally, I don't wear foundation. One because my skin is really sensitive and two, I just don't have time on a morning to put it on etc. Aka I would rather have an extra 5 minutes of sleep then do my makeup on a morning... Priorities haha!

However, due to this, I decided I would try it out for a change and see if I really should use it!

So here is my 'No7 Foundation Review'...

Pimms and Needles Wreath Making

Last night hosted the next meeting of the independent women's group Pimms and Needles.

As a member, I was reallllllly looking forward to this one as we were doing something that was on my bucket list... We were wreath making.

Getting my things together!
This flower head looks like
a heart aww!
Wreaths are usually made/bought for the Christmassy period. Normally hung up on front doors, they just scream festive to me so I was super intrigued in how you make one. I will try and show you how to make one but I am not an expert so bare with me haha!

Brave New (and odd) World review

A step away from my Fancy that of London post series today with a review on a play that really left me quite confused and kind of traumatised. Aldous Huxley's Brave New World. 
I saw this performance last night with a group as a Young Reporter for Theatre Cloud. Exciting times!
However, it did leave me with very mixed feelings!

Fancy that of London, Part Two

First things first, its my 100th post of this year, WOOOOO!!! compared to my 23 posts last year, its a great achievement so thank you for reading me waffling on about things haha!

And so we move on with this special post series about my 21st birthday trip to London with part two!
If you haven't read part one, read it here.

Fancy that of London, Part One

From the 26-29th October, my lovely mother took me to London for my 21st birthday. For the four days we had in the big old city, we certainly did a lot and I will definitely remember this special trip.

So I thought I would share our adventures on here, where I will show you the things we did, a couple of reviews, a fashion piece and so much more over the course of this post series.

All ready to go
Its not to brag about all the things we did but to show you what you can do if you ever travel to London! So much to do, so little time! There will be five parts in all (one part for each day and a fashion post) so sit back and grab a cuppa!

Not another blog update (hahaha)

I know, I know, I only did one of these a couple of months ago but here is another blog update.

As you may or may not, I have changed my blog name about 4 times now (I am just never satisfied and a bit of perfectionist), I haven't felt like they have been a catchy but personal name to have for my platform.

So Cheer Up Buttercup has been chosen now. I love this saying, I use it to make myself and other feel better. Sometimes it doesn't work and some times it does, its just a little something that reminds me that there are plenty of things to smile about in a bad situation. It cheers me up!

Don't worry, the blog content will still be the same but I am also going to include some more posts about things that have affected me, that is happening in the world or something that I am passionate about. I have done a couple of these before (On the topic of... posts and some others) but I think it would be useful for me to express certain emotions that you may feel too.

But yeah, I hope you like my new blog name and I will see you in my next posts!

Until next time

All photographs are my own!
