Little updates

I didn't get around to doing this last week, so these are from the past two weeks - enjoy :)

My first attempt at red velvet cupcakes - you can't see, but they're not red enough, must add more food dye next time.  These are for eating tonight whilst watching Beyonce!


Tried a J2O glitter berry.  It looked like bubble bath and tasted like cherry - me no like


Meeting up with the girls who came on the Peckham nail polish raid with me! 


Went to see Breaking Dawn.  Loved it.  Team Edward all the way!


I bought two packs of these for work and didn't actually eat one!


 Cookie pop for the boyf


Amazing Paul & Joe kitty shaped blush sticks - really need to get my full Paul & Joe post up asap


Festiveness



So pleased to get such good feedback on my glambox review last week


Never too old for one of these


Getting glitzy for my work Christmas party



A few snaps from the night


Random flowers my Mum didn't want and gave to me


Trying out Sally Hansen nail wraps - blog post coming soon!


Attempting curly hair and failing as usual


My Motel dress arrived and looks beaut


My iphone has new clothes


The bf knows how to put a smile on my face


First slice of Crimbo cake this season (no marzipan - bleeeurgh to marzipan)


Reunited with my favourite lippie!  I lost this little treasure before I'd even blogged about it, but after writing it off as having been lost out in the street, I found it a week later hiding in a box full of Christmas presents :)


And finally, my facey B page now has a proper url! www.facebook.com/flutterandsparkle  I'd love it if you checked it out :)




This week I'm off to Bath with my besties.  We're going to be going to some Christmas Markets and an Outlet shopping centre in Swindon, woo!

And not forgetting some lovely new blogs I've discovered recently - show them some <3







Have a fun week xx

  8. I tried making red velvet cakes last week but also didn't use enough red food dye :( haha, those Paul and Joe blush sticks are adorable but I wouldn't want to ruin them!
