Room Interior

HELLOOOOOOOO

So, recently (and forever) I have been obsessed with making my room look cute and amazing! I must say a lot of my inspo is from Zoella. However, I’m not a millionaire youtuber so kind of have to stick with the amazing IKEA!

My desk is from IKEA and probably cost around £15 which is just super cheap and looks great with all of my decor

Let’s start with my copper lamp, my beautiful copper lamp that I have feelings for. I have been eyeing up this lamp in TKMAX for like 3 months now and finally got it for a total of £24.99 which is just amazing in my eyes.

On top of my lamp is a little trinket tray from Oliver Bonas (yep I’m obsessed with copper)

My cork board is from IKEA and was super cheap and I’m sure you can get them from poundshops as well so not really breaking the bank and can become a statement in any room! The fairy lights around the cork board are from Primark who do the best affordable fairy lights! The cactus chalk board is also from Primark which was only £2! Cute and cheap ❤️

 
All of the plant pots are from IKEA and are no more than £3 each which is amazing as I love the gold pots – they really go well with my gold and copper theme!

To the right of my desk is a copper letter holder which I do love as it’s perfect for a desk to store books! It’s £17.99 which is crazy – why did I even think that was a good price??? I know that you can get cute copper baskets from Primark for £3-£5 which is a great and A LOT BETTER alternative. WHO PAYS £18 for a mini letter holder??? (Me)

The brass wire initials are from NEXT and are £6 each which is kind of silly like £12 for two metal letters ??? (still cheaper than the letter holder 👀) but I was thinking you could go to a craft shop and buy cardboard letters and spray paint them gold or whatever colour your heart desires.

 
The ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE (v true) is from TKMAX – HOWEVER they do have a similar one on The Range which I do wish I got more and it is actually cheaper – roll my eyes framed art – only £2.99 for the meaning of life

THAT is desk goals 👸🏼


My bed and bedside table are from IKEA obvs – who doesn’t have this bed wrapped with Primark fairy lights?

The copper hanging mirror is £5 from Primark – it’s just so cute and Primark are doing so good with the copper vibes!

The copper alarm clock (which doesn’t have batteries in because I hate the noise of clocks) was from Asda but I’m not sure it’s in stock anymore…however they do have one in Wilkos – copper alarm clock ⏰

I wish I could decorate everyone’s room – the world would be a better place 🌞

Bolton Abbey

IMG_4026Heeelllloooooo

This post is about Bolton Abbey and why YOU should go…

IMG_0286.JPG

FIRST of all, you can take your own BBQ and have a lovely BBQ by the river at Bolton Abbey – the BBQ area is big so you are guaranteed to get a space to fulfill your BBQ needs

SECONDLY, the scenery is amazing as you can imagine! There is a valley called the Valley of Desolation which just sounds cool and you have to go just cause of the name. There is a wishing fountain so you can make all your wishes come true! There’s also a church that isn’t a church anymore but if you’re weird like me and like reading grave stones then that’s cool.

STEPPING STONES – the stepping stones are super fun but if you’re scared like me, you can just step on a few for a pic and make a return back to the land 🙂

When it’s really hot, it’s acceptable to get in your swimwear and go for a swim at Bolton Abbey, it looks super fun as well

If you’re arriving in a car, it is £10 to park but it is totally worth it as it is such a good day out and you can explore all day and have a sit down with a picnic or a BBQ or both ofc

So goooo to Bolton Abbey

go now

Mermaid Party Cupcakes

IMG_3851.JPGQuick and easy mermaid cupcakes by me and Liv P…

Me and Liv stumbled upon the mermaid cupcake set  in a lovely little shop in Kirkby Longsdale. It was way too cute not to buy…

These cakes are perfect for a baby shower, children’s parties, charity bake sales and basically anyone who loves mermaids and cake

Ingredients:

12 cupcakes –

  • 110g self raising flour
  • 110g unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 110g caster sugar
  • 2 medium free-range eggs
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • blackcurrant jam
  • strawberry jam

To decorate –

  • Betty Crocker’s vanilla buttercream frosting
  • Pink and blue food colouring
  • Dr Oetker Fairy Princess sprinkles
  • Mermaid cupcake set

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4 and place 12 paper cases into a muffin tin.
  2. Mix the butter and sugar together in a bowl. Beat in the eggs a little at a time and stir in the vanilla extract.
  3. Fold in the flour, adding a little milk. Spoon the mixture into the paper cases until they are half full.
  4. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes. Set aside until the cakes are cool.
  5. When the cakes are cool, use a syringe to inject the jam into the cakes. We used blackcurrant jam for the blue cakes and strawberry jam for the pink cakes.
  6. For the topping, simply spoon out the buttercream into two bowls. Colour half of the cream pink and the other half blue.
  7. Carefully spoon on the buttercream onto the cake in a circular motion.
  8. Go crazy and sprinkle your desired decorations and then stick the mermaid skewers into the cake.
  9. ENJOY the cuteness
  10. ENJOY the taste 🙂
