Baking Project 103: It's That Time Of Year Again!


In 5 days time, my baby sister will turn 21 years old. 21???

It feels like just yesterday, after months of preparation, I was sat here typing up my Baking Project 101: Finished Piece post and shared with you the giant cupcake I made her for her 20th birthday. If you've not read that post, please go ahead and take a look. It's honestly one of the bakes I'm most proud of so far. 

My first ever celebration cake! 

Yes, there were almost tears and moments of "I can't do this!" but do you know what? I loved every second of it. I loved every second of it so much that I agreed to do it all over again this year and make her 21st birthday cake.

Am I mad? The answer to that question is, yes, quite possibly!

What I Got For My Birthday | 2016

What I Got For My Birthday | 2016

Every year I write this post and every year I always feel a bit on edge about posting it. I personally love reading these posts, I love taking a look at what gifts people have received for their birthday and Christmas. Believe it or not, it gives me gift inspiration when I'm seriously lacking it.

I realize there is still, unfortunately, a lot of stigma against these posts. A lot of "oh! they're just showing off" but I love reading these posts, I know a few of my readers do too (thanks to the lovely comments you've left on my previous posts) and what the hell, this is my blog and I'll write what I like.

Disclaimer: This post is in no way intended an "Oh! Look what I got" or a "Look how much money my family and loved ones spent on me" post. This post is just simply me sharing with you some of the incredible gifts I received for my birthday and, like me, I hope you find this post fills you with Christmas/Birthday gift inspiration.

Bananagrams: Party Edition | Review

Bananagrams: Party Edition | Review

S and I are huge gamers. Whether that's video games or board games.

We love nothing more than getting together with family or playing against each other, even more so now we've got our own little house to host these get-togethers. So when I saw Venetia's call for blogger's who would be interested in reviewing a new board game in the UK Blogger Opportunities Facebook page, I was so excited.
