Oh my goodness, I’m 27… Bloody hell. I am starting to feel it though now.
So my little man really spoilt me. He got me sooo much… I mean who would have thought a kitten could afford & know how to order all this stuff 🙄😂
Sam made me breakfast & we went off to the coast as it was a glorious day. We had a good walk & went round the amusements. I totally beat him at bowling too 💁🏽 we got some yummy doughnuts & treats & a hot chocolate too.
I then finished off my cake & if I say so myself, for a first try I think I did pretty well. Right?! 🍰 I got the topper & the candles from Amazon incase anyone wants to know.
Going back to the gifts I got. I was well & truly spoiled rotten. So many bath bombs, candles & smelly’s! Exactly what I wanted. Plus a fair few bottles of drink, including some yummy unicorn gin which didn’t even last 5 days 😂 I had a lovely bunch of flowers & some new lunch boxes as well. Sam also got me some nice adidas trainers.
My mum & nephew then came round for a Chinese for tea.. And to taste the cake I made.Which, might I add, went down very well 💁🏽 Sam’s mum & dad then joined us for a drink too.
Thanks to everyone who made my day special 🎁🎂
Now who wouldn’t want a cake to land on their doorstep?! 🎂
Thankyou bakerdays for making my tummy happy 😜 I have had two cakes from bakerdays now & I couldn’t fault either of them *I did receive these free, but my review is completely true & all my own thoughts*
The first one was for my blog, so I added my own photo to it. The picture is super cute, the delivery is spot on & they literally taste so yum! It was a vanilla sponge… I could have eaten the whole thing to myself 🙈 they’re called letterbox cakes as they are designed to be posted through the letterbox… Obviously. With this cake I received some balloons, a candle & a party blower/horn 🎈 woooo
The second was for my better halves birthday. We went to Tenerife & it lasted so well. (The cake arrived on Thursday, we went on holiday on the Tuesday & his birthday was the Friday after) Plus, again, delivery was amazing. They made sure I had it in time for leaving for the airport, it went in my case & travelled all that way in one piece. This time we had chocolate as Sam is a chocoholic. I think I got one slice & he demolished the rest of it 🙄😩
You should have a look if you love cake like me, they do all sorts of designs, lots of different flavours & you can choose your delivery too 💁🏽 you can order cupcakes & balloons too. I know that I will definitely be using them again in the future!
Cannot believe my blog is 1 year old already! Bloooming heck that went fast. Happy Blogiversary to meee 🎉🎊
When I started this a year ago I didn’t think I would actually be able to get people to read my posts, nor did I think I would stick at it. But I can honestly say I love blogging.
At school I used to pride myself in my spelling & grammar. It’s one thing that I feel I am actually pretty good at. I enjoy writing & ‘creative writing’ 📝 was always my favourite. Who doesn’t love creating an exciting story in your head & then writing it down. I also really love lists… I swear I have a life too 🙄
Eeee look at my cake from baker days! I love it, Thankyou soooo much. It looked beautiful & had the most perfect sponge everrrr 😋🍰
Here is a little insight into how long it can take to grow your blog. It doesn’t happen overnight & it takes a lot of commitment. But if you love what you do, you’ll get there & you’ll enjoy doing it.
I hope all my existing readers & hopefully new readers to come enjoy my posts! But I am always open to feedback or ideas so feel free to comment ☺️ I don’t bite I promise. I’d also love to know what your favourite type of posts are that I write! Engaging with my audience is something I think is important. So hey 👋🏽 & thank you for supporting me!
Happy 1 year to my blog! Also head over to my Instagram, as I have teamed up with baker days, to do a fabulous giveaway! 🍰🎂
I thought I would share with you some of the things I got given for my birthday. Sorry if this bores anyone 🙄
I love asking for practical things that I don’t really want to buy for myself 🙈 so I asked my mum to get me some new pjs, dressing gown etc. It’s just one of those things I can never be bothered to go and buy. So I got given some cute primark pjs & dressing gown. They have Marie from the aristocats on 🐱💕 love that film. These are sooo comfy. I also got a new money box/prosecco fund 🍾🤔 haha it’s so me. A bottle of Lacoste perfume, as I keep using the same ones over & over I thought a different one would be nice. My brother got me a bottle of rosé, a photo frame of my nephews, the little cuties & some chocolate. I sound spoilt already 🙈
My work colleagues:
I got so many goodies from my lovely co-workers. I was given a debenhams gift card, which I think I’m going to buy some new makeup with.. duh 🙄 A kenzo perfume which smells lovely. The lady who bought this said she always picks me one she would wear because I always tell her she smells nice 🙈😂 some soaps, scrubs, candles & mojito sweets (yum) from others 👌🏼 people know me so well 💁🏽
Sooo many bottles of rosé & prosecco. Thanks Hannah, Jade & Colleen. A cute little necklace & coco pops lip balm too. Steph always buys something different 💁🏽 it tastes so good. Not that I’m eating it 😂 I got a cute delivery from bloom & wild from Meg, this was really kind. They’re still looking beautiful in my room now! 💐 I also got some nice mermaid makeup brushes from my little mini me, Reilly (Colleens little one) which I’m going to do her makeup with 💁🏽😍 plus some more candles & chocolate 🍫
My boyfriend & his family:
More makeup brushes!! Plus a brush holder 😜 this time spectrum ones. Loads of Gerard cosmetics liquid lipsticks, 💄 including a new shade I’ve not tried yet, wine down. Lots more chocolate of course.. I’m seeing a theme here. Loads of good bath bombs from bomb cosmetics, soaps & skincare treats from lush, just loads of goodies to keep my skin looking fab. Lucy (sam’s sister) also baked me a cake. I’m a very lucky girl, she even spelt my name right 💁🏽 haha! His auntie even bought me a lipsy bag, it’s a grey colour & it is literally spot on me 😍
Thankyou everyone 😘
