Bunny Tail Cupcakes

I had to bake these bunny tails cupcakes for Easter this weekend because they are too cute to pass up. Oh and the fact they are carrot cake and have coconut on top, which are two of my favourite things is just an extra sweet bonus.

Stacey's Smiles

This week has gone by so quickly, but it has been so nice to not have to think about what time I need to wake up in the mornings or having to be anywhere at any particular time! I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter weekend! I am looking forward to eating a lot of chocolate on Sunday!

Little things that made a day better.

Easter Baking Ideas

Eater starts tomorrow and I have so many yummy treats I want to bake! These are some of my favourite ideas I have pinned on Pinterest this year. I'm attempting the bunny buns using coconut today and I have a stash of creme eggs hidden away to make the brownie at the weekend! Have you seen any good Easter recipes, please feel free to share in the comments!

Springtime Nails

Spring has not arrived here yet at all, but I am over waiting for it  appear, so I gave my nails a springtime manicure this week using a blue Nails inc colour and Kiko lilac. I love the split colour and I'm excited to try out more combinations!

And my big toe got a little flower detail too!

Latest In Beauty Estee Lauder Discovery Box Review

I still haven't signed up to one of those monthly sample boxes yet because I know what I'm like, I will forget to cancel it and then be over run with samples I won't use. That is why I love the one off boxes they do at (I last reviewed one here). You don't have to sign up and pay each month, you just purchase a box when you like and you can see what is in the box before you buy it! I always forget to check the site and see what new boxes they have and I'm sure I've missed out on plenty of good stuff but last week I remembered to have a look and saw this Estee Lauder Discovery box. It's just £14.95 including p&p and you get six samples inside.

Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator 7ml - value £10.96

This is the product I'm most excited to try, the Idealist Skin Illuminator

So you get £35.05 worth of products for just £14.95  which I think is a great bargain and you also get a card inside inviting you to any Estee Lauder counter for a skin and make up consolation and a 10 day sample of their foundation! I haven't tried the products yet so I won't personally recommend them just yet but I've heard great things about Estee Lauder products and a fun fact the first 'expensive' lip product I ever purchased was from Estee Lauder.

Something Old But New

Happy Monday! I want to introduce you all to my little vintage Chanel bag. She is from the 1980's I think, but she is new too me (well sort of I've had her since December now) and this is her first real appearance on the blog! I've dreamt of a owning a Chanel bag for years and never thought it would happen but when Sam (from Style of Sam) told me she found some of her vintage Chanel's for a great price I went hunting and with Sam's help I managed to find an authentic vintage one within my budget.

New Purchases

Yesterday was officially the first day of Spring, but with all this cold weather and small flurries of snow it doesn't really feel like Spring is here quite yet! I haven't made very many purchases for my wardrobe this season because the weather has been so uninspiring, but I had seen this Topshop bag floating around on some blogs as a much cheaper alternative to a Celine bag. Once I saw it in person I knew it had to be mine for Spring. It has plenty of room and it zips across the top so you won't lose all your belongs, and the gold accents set it off perfectly.

My other purchases for the day were some sprinkles for some baking next week and one of my favourite Lush products, the Mask of Magnaminty. A random combination I know!

Has anyone else made any Spring purchases they are in love with yet?

SS Print Shop Review

You may remember this post back in January about the gorgeous and talented Stephanie Sterjovski and the SS Print Shop. Well I finally decided on two prints to order and I already want some more!

Firstly they arrived to the UK from Canada in just 3 days! As soon as I open my package I was greeted by bright and colourful confetti that instantly cheered me up (I was having an awful day). I decided to go for the Hello & the Shakespeare prints after a lot of debating and I couldn't be happier with my choices! I plan to hang the Hello print from some twine along my bedroom wall and I haven't quite decided where to place the Shakespeare one yet!

If you haven't visited the SS Print Shop yet go and do it now! Since I lasted posted about the SS Print Shop, Stephanie has also released a Wedding Collection which I love, although I'm not getting married anytime soon they would make a perfect gift for someone who is!  Which print do you love??
