It has the cutest tassel

♥  ♥  ♥

This is the card my Boyfriend got for my birthday.
So hilarious.

I haven't been shopping lately, just saving my money, trying to be a bit less 'spendy
But I saw this bag and after stalking it online for awhile I decided to take the plunge.

Have you guys bought anything nice lately?

Happy Shopping everyone :-D

Shoesday Tuesday = Shoesday. Selling some shoes on Trademe, New Zealands own Ebay

 I love these shoes but in about 7 years Ive worn them maybe ONCE! So they're GONE
They've literally met their reserve and are GOING.

I like these shoes, but I've had enough of them
They feel dated now, someone else can enjoy them.

I bought these shoes on a whim and don't love them
so thought I would see how they do in a sale.

As you can see I buy shoes first, ask questions later...

I really want some over-the-knee boots...
These could do it: Diba Knee high boot from +Wild Pair 

Aaaaaand I bought these yesterday...

All in all the downsizing aint going so great.

Happy Shoesday All.

I also just bought some new black pumps!
At least I'm off-loading... as well as re-loading?

NOTD - My version of Cupcake Nails, a super fun nail art tutorial

So, these were mildly successful, so I'll show you how I got here
Remember: Patience.

Step 1: Paint yo nails...

Step 2: With a white striper (or white gel pen) 
draw your icing top and vertical lines down to your cuticles...

Step 3: Fill the icing top in with white.
Add some glitter nail polish for sprinkles!
Do a dot for the cherry on top.

Et Voila!!!
I've put glitter nailpolish over the top to look like sprinkles. 

Not as pretty (or as edible) as these cupcakes I made for 
SPCA (Society for the protection of Animals) Cupcake day!

*cough* If your don't look like this, soz dunno why!?
OOH! Always add a top coat to seal it all up!

Sunday Baking - soft, tender freshly baked Lemonade Scones - Ridiculously easy recipe

Lemonade Scones


512g Flour, sifted
4t Baking powder
Pinch salt
300ml double cream
300ml lemonade or soda water


Sift flour, Baking Powder and salt together several times to aerate.
Make a well in the center and pour on cream and lemonade.
Mix until a soft dough is formed (never over-mix your scones, they'll be tough)

Turn dough out onto a floured surface and dust with a little more flour.
push out (with your hands, not a rolling pin) the dough to form a rectangle shape. 
Cut into 12 equal sized pieces.
Arrange on lined baking trays and bake at 220 centigrade for 10-12 mins until golden brown.

Remove and cool wrapped in a clean tea towel to keep fresh.

Go nuts!

You could add cheese for cheese scones, or dates, or sultanas.

I served mine with butter and some home-made kiwifruit jam from the local farmers market!
These freeze well - keep in a plastic container, just refresh in the microwave for 20 seconds.

Happy Baking all
