Strawberries & cream!


how was everyone's weekend?

Mine was nice. On Friday, the rain stopped a little and a night out with some friends was still on. It was really fun actually, although we drank quite a lot.

On Saturday, I passed by a little street book sale and, as usual, never expected to find anything but managed to spot a book I've wanted to read for a while now; The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova, and for a bargain price too; £2.50! The rest of my Saturday was a little wasted though; I decided not to take up the offer of another night out with friends, and had a lovely night in on my own instead. I finally did some baking and made some strawberries and cream mini-cupcakes.

So I sat down with a good book (although truthfully, the book was Twilight III, not the one pictured) and these deelish cupcakes. I'd stayed up until 3am to finish the book -- onwards and upwards with Twilight IV -- but I had gorged myself on cupcakes, mini or not, well before that!

Sunday I popped into town and just picked up some bits and bobs, toiletries mostly. I did spot a lovely dress in Miss Selfridge (one of my fave shops!) that I could team with Mary Jane court shoes, a quilted bag and some silver jewellery for my cousins hen party that I'm going home for this weekend. What do you think?

A bit of a girly moment here, but allow me that much; I am a girl, after all. :)



  1. Those cupcakes are adorable! I can't take it.

  2. I really liked the dress - good choices on the accessories! I think maybe a light bracelet will make it complete.

  3. @Ali: Thanks!

    @alkuzn: Yeh, I think I might get the dress, I've been thinking about it this week! lol.

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I have The Historian on my list of things to read...let me know how you like it!
