I thought I’d do a little blog post about ‘where I blog from’ which is my bedroom desk/dressing table. And I’m also going to include some of my favourite bits of pretty stationery too because I’m a bit obsessed with it. My little white desk fits in perfectly between my mirrored wardrobe and my bed, and it has some handy little shelves down the side of it. It’s just from Ikea and I think it was only £35. Anyway on it is usually my big ugly laptop (soon to be replaced by an iPad!) as well as all the things…

I was recently offered a voucher to spend with a company called Printed.com, who do high quality printing on a wide range of products. I decided to spend my voucher on some new promotional material for my business, Victoria’s Vintage Cakes. They allow you to print on loads of different items, from business cards to posters. I decided that as I already have some business cards and leaflets that I wanted to buy some stickers! I thought that these would be perfect for sticking on my cake boxes when customers collect their orders, or for handing out to kids at…

Hello! I hope you all had an exciting New Years Eve and a lazy New Years Day (I did!). Today I wanted to do a post on my New Years resolutions for 2013. 2012 was a pretty mediocre year for me. Not a lot really happened, but nothing bad happened either. I worked a job I liked for the majority of the year, met some amazing new bloggers, went to some fab events, but overall that is about it! Which is good I suppose as it’s better than having a crappy year where everything goes wrong! But I have some…

I did a wishlist post before Christmas and explained that I probably wouldn’t really get a lot of stuff because I only have a few people that buy for me, and I wasn’t expecting any large gifts as I’d already had a new car, camera, and kitten this year from my parents! But I did get a few nice gifts which I am very grateful for! So here’s what I got for Christmas from my lovely friends and family: My parents got me this amazingly hilarious geek bunny knitted jumper. I saw it in Camden and thought it was amazing…

Hello everyone! I sincerely hope that you all had a very enjoyable Christmas period and that you got everything you wished for and ate lots of delicious food! In my house we started the day at 9am with a delicious croissant breakfast! I opened a few pressies in my fabulous Santa Claus onesie (which I won from New Look!) with Merlin, and then I went and got changed into my proper Christmas dress (post coming soon!). My sister, her partner, my niece, and my baby nephew came over at noon to open more presents, and then we all sat down…

I was really lucky to be offered some tickets to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, courtesy of Costa Bingo. I love winter time and I adore visiting London, so I was really excited to visit Winter Wonderland! I took my niece on Friday 21st December during the day, which was good because it meant it wasn’t too busy as the kids hadn’t yet broken up for school! We chose to go ice skating on the Ice Age 4 ice rink inside Winter Wonderland. The beautiful ice rink is set around a Victorian bandstand which actually did have a band playing…
