My Feel Good Summer Playlist

The summer is definitely my favourite time of the year for music by far. Driving with the windows down, the summery air spilling in the windows and the summery happy tunes blasting through the speakers - the perfect picture right?! Ohh the bliss. On my phone/iPod I always make sure I have a go-to, feel good, happy playlist on the go to listen to in those situations which demand a mood change or don't feel 'complete' and I tell ya, there's a real mixture of artists in this one.

Zoeva Lip Crayons | Nude Hero & Tender Rose Review

Exams are finally over *breaths sign of relief* which means I can get back to regular blogging again - hurray!

I am a little late to join the Zoeva band waggon I must admit, but better late than never hey?! As the summer is fast approaching I have been reaching for my summery, light-weight bases to create a natural, nude look and what better way to finish things off than with a nice nude or summery pink lipstick! I was torn between splurging out for a MAC lipstick or going for a dugstore nude option. In the end however I decided to go straight down the middle and opt for the Zoeva Lip Crayons in the shades Nude Hero and Tender Rose from 'love-makeup'(due to the postage working out cheaper) after hearing good things about them from Zoella! I was soo impressed with how fast they arrived (in under 24hours for standard 1st class delivery - mad!) from procrastinating around lunch time whilst revising on a Monday to getting them through the post on the Tuesday morning. Enough about that, lets get on with the review!

The Fail-Safe Chocolate Cupcake | Recipe

This chocolate cake/cupcake recipe is sure to go down a treat. It's quick, easy and an all-in-one method which produces light, squidgy, scrumptious and indulgent cakes which don't even require icing - bonus!! I came across this recipe through my mums friend and haven't looked back since. I used to use my usual Victoria sandwich cake recipe when i substituted the vanilla for the cocoa powder. However, it did sometimes produce quite a dense cake so this is a great alternative! Don't forget to check out the pictures which go along with the method just after step 3 - enjoy!
