Let them eat cake, Songbird Bakery's Blogger event

Last night, I went to a cute new bakery that is having its grand opening today. The little preview gave me a chance to explore the world of Songbird Bakery and well, I will be going back that's for sure!

I absolutely loved this place, located on Bedford Street, Middlesbrough, and meeting other bloggers and eating delicious cakes, it was a fabulous way to end an already great day for me.

5 TV shows you have to watch on Netflix UK

I, like many other, am a Netflixaholic. Yes, I admit it. I have an obsession with Netflix and binge watching a lot of TV shows and films on it. It is so addictive, ok?!

Funny thing is, my friend gave me hers so I could watch Pretty Little Liars and well, I haven't looked back since. It is so good watching new things I wouldn't have been able to see and to watch old shows/films I loved when I was younger and to relive their magic.

Because of this, I will be showing you five shows to watch on Netflix UK. Please note that Netflix US may differ to what you can watch on that so these might not be available.

A Spring Upcycle

I have for you an up cycle today for you and it comes in the form of this green stool I use in my bedroom.

I originally bought this as it would fit in my bedroom, which I wanted green (bold I know) and it came in so useful to put my laptop on it when I am watching something so because of that, I didn't want to get rid of it since I have redecorated my room.

The plain, bold stool before I
got my hands on it.
Therefore my creative juices got flowing and I decided to give it a face lift. and a lick of paint.

Spring is here

Spring is finally here and I love it! From the blossom on the trees to the fashion we receive (ooo that rhymed!), it is such a pretty time of year.

I haven't decided yet if I should do a little post series for spring, covering home and accessories to baking etc. I dunno, I haven't decided to do this or not, what do you think?!

However, today, I have for you three outfits perfect for this blooming season, great for shopping, heading to the seaside or just relaxing in, it is all here.

So here is 'Spring is here'...

Pimms and Needles, DIY Skills

That time of the month again... Pimms and Needles time! Last nights meeting consisted of a drill, nails, tiles and our ceramic creations from the last meeting! It was DIY night.

I love a bit of DIY. From painting, tiling, putting up a shelf, we learned it all there. Although I knew how to do most of the things we learned, it was a good night none the less.

A look around my blog, What's new?

A lot has changed on my little space on the internet: my blog's name, it's contents and the layout to name but a few. As you may or may not have noticed (depending on if you have been on my blog in the past or not), the layout has changed over the 18 months it has been alive for.

An old blog layout
This is basically to make it easier, smarter and more professional but keeping my personality also with the pretty floral and vintage elements so I am going to take you around my blog as a little guide to all of its features!

Honeycomb Ice Cream

First things first, I have just seen that my blog has just over 10,000 views!!! I mean, how on earth?! Thank you all so much for reading me waffle on about me fangirling over things for the past 18 months! A huge achievement for me so thank you so much!

To celebrate, I have another recipe for you in my Bake and Make series, Buttercups! This one comes in the form of ice cream with honeycomb and well, who doesn't love a good ice cream to eat during the warm season?!

Easter dessert is served!
This super duper simple dessert comes from Mary Berry and her Fool Proof Cooking programme, which was shown on BBC Two earlier this year.

I cannot believe how easy this was to make, in just four quick steps, you can make this homemade ice cream treat too!

So here is 'Honeycomb Ice Cream'...

On the topic of periods

Yep, you read that right. Periods. Something that every girl will go through in her life and something that is often nudged to one side. A controversial topic to many but one, I think that women should embrace it and I am here to tell you why!
