Anyone for some tissue paper pompoms?

Recently I published a letter to my blog to celebrate it's third birthday, how exciting hey! The photo accompanying that said post included a big, colourful '3' that I had made from scratch for the special occasion and because I enjoyed making it so much, I thought I would share how I created it!

Honestly, they are sooooo easy to make and you can create almost anything probably! You don't need a lot of things to make them as well, most are found in your house!

So let us crack on with pompom making...

Putting the zest into Summer

A recipe for you today and this is perfect for summer! A lemon meringue pie... In cake form. YESSSSSS! This is refreshing, easy to make and although a bit time consuming [you do need plenty of time to make this if you are going to make all the bits n bobs], this cake is delicious with a nice cold drink and you sitting outside, enjoying a sunny day.

Now, I did make the lemon curd and the tiny meringues as well, you can always buy them in if you only have time to bake the cake.

Anyway, I will include all three recipes [one for each the cake, lemon curd and meringues] so just bare with this post as it will be a long one!

So let us begin...

Happy 3rd B(log)irthday| A letter to my blog

So today marks three years of Call Me Caz. Well, that is incorrect in the fact that my little space on the internet was originally called The Adventures of Caroline then The Vintage Daydream then Geek meets Chic then Cheer Up Buttercup then Ayrana Rose and then this. I mean I knew I was indecisive but not that much!

I made this cute, little, colourful '3' to celebrate!!!
However, I have a lot to be thankful for due to this blog and wanted to write something a bit different to what I did for it's first birthday and second birthday so I thought I would write a letter instead. Bit weird I know but it just feels right.

So here is my letter to my blog...

Top three female characters (TV)

We have had my three fave male ones and now it is time for some girl power, with my top three favourite tv show female characters.

Like the other post stated, I have a lot of favourite characters [I watch so much tv, it is bad] but these females are badass and I love them so much!

So here are my three favourite kickass women on the telly...

Why I am done being single

On Sunday night, I decided to download Tinder on my tablet. If you don't know what Tinder is, it is a dating app that shows you all the people in your area that are on it. It goes through Facebook [you sign in with your account] and you swipe left [for no] or right [for like] and it comes up if you have matched with the person. You can then send a message if you want to. I use it for a good laugh me haha!

Anyway, it got me thinking about my non existent relationship history. I have always been single really. I mean I've had a couple on/off relationships but nothing that has lasted for more than a month or so. For starters, I am ok with this, it doesn't bother me one bit in fact. I think society has made us all too well aware of us having to be in relationships and if you haven't/aren't in one, then you are probably unattractive and you should sort that out asap.

The thing is, for 22 years, I have enjoyed being this single, independent girl who didn't need no man to take care of her and treat her like a princess, like that ain't me. I published a post on why I think I am single so that expands on this. But as much as I love being single, I do want to be with someone now.

I'll warn you that this maybe a long post, oopsy, but I have just kinda written everything down that I have been feeling recently and just letting it all go!

Because, as of now, I am done with being single and here is why...

Dear Michael,

How to do an introduction for my 400th post. To be true, I can't. No amount of words will ever really explain what this post really is but here I am. Yeah, it is a letter but something is different with this one when compared to my others ones I have published.

Now, you will probably be wondering who Michael is. He isn't an ex, he isn't a friend, he isn't even alive. He is my big brother. My big brother who sadly was never alive. He was a stillborn.

This photo is my own.
I recently read a post by the lovely Beth, on her amazing Polished Couture blog, about the loss of her big brother and why she doesn't class herself as an only child. Just to be clear, her big brother was not a stillborn but I did relate to her post. It was so beautifully written [please, please read her post] but gosh, it brought up some really hard feelings surrounding Michael. Now, I have two other older brothers, I say I have one though but that is a different story completely but it is hard when people ask if I have any siblings, knowing that I have three older brothers.

There are more than 3,600 stillbirths in the UK every year [stat from NHS] and I wanted to write this post, not for sympathy [farrrr from that] but to try and raise awareness of stillbirths. My mum doesn't really talk about Michael, she has told me about him but I don't really know a lot, that is understandable, but there is not a day that goes by where I don't think about him and what could of been if he was here.

Due to this, I have decided to write him a letter so here it is...

The Self Love Tag

I say it every time I do one of these posts and I will continue to say it, I love doing blogging tags! I just adore reading them as I love getting to know the person behind the blog more and I proper enjoy writing them as you get to know me more [or at least I hope you do].

Photo from Lucy
This tag is a bit special as a lovely blogger I know has created this wonderful tag, Lucy, from Just Lucy's Life. I kinda feel honoured in a way as I am one of the first people to be tagged in this and I honestly hope this catches on because I think it is marvellous.

Now time to spread a bit of positivity around with The Self Love Tag...

I'm like a bird...

Before you read this post, I just want to take a moment to think about those affected by the attacks in London and Manchester. My thoughts and love are with everyone who has been affected! The One Love Manchester concert, that happened on Sunday night, was just simply and absolutely beautiful.
Love will always win.

I know, I am singing the song too, it is such a tuneeeeee though ain't it! Today I have a little outfit post for you all and I am proper just loving doing fashion posts at the moment! Really enjoy creating looks, wearing whatever I want and also finding little beauties in town!

Anyway, back with the post! Normally I am not one for denim skirts. Although I have about three, I find they hug in all the wrong places but this one, yesssssssss, this one is definitely my favourite purely because of one thing.

That bird embroidery...

Hello, my name is Caroline

Over this past week or so, I have been looking back at how far I have come as a person and how I have changed since being a wee little 11 year old, starting secondary school to the 22 year old woman I am now.

Like most people on this planet, I have been through mostly crappy times during my time on Earth but these past seven days have made me realise that hello, my name is Caroline and I am proud of who I am.

So this is me, brown haired, blue eyed me...
