Food Glorious Food

We were celebrating the lovely Sally's 26th birthday not long ago!
She invited us for a sunny bbq in her back garden, with plenty of cocktails, crisps dip combos and chit chats. I brought over some homemade cupcakes and Lillie (her sister) created an amazinggg Grumpy Cat cake which you can see below - genius. If only we could have stayed longer! 

 Strawberry cupcakes with strawberry hearts / Chocolate cupcakes with white chocolate mice
And here are some cupcakes I made for my neighbours to say a little thank you for looking out for us :)

Magnum Dip

For quite some time my sister raved about this pop-up her company were creating
It's basically designing your perfect Magnum with lots of melted chocolate and picking from a variety of yummy colourful toppings. They literally add your chosen toppings in a mini cocktail shaker, which they then sprinkle over your thickly dipped chocolate ice lolly - I chose pieces of meringue, cookie crumbs and berries! Salivating thinking about it...well worth the £4.50 price and while your waiting there's the amazing display surrounding you; the detail is insane.

Look at the concentration, that guy knows what he's doing
 Have I convinced you yet....mmm
Oh completely forgot to say it's in Selfridges in the Wonder Room - Should be there until end of August I believe!

Break time

 Now that the weather's picking up I'm trying to force myself to get out more
Its not that I'm a loser, I just find it so easy to get comfortable and stay cooped up indoors, but I'm trying to make more plans, honest. So below are a few different days in London on my days off or after work from the past month. Hopefully more to come!

Open air cinema in Vauxhall - Mean girls! Jingle bell rock scene...
 Hyde park, exercising the horses 
 Had my absolute favourite ice lolly, ZAP, at Hampton Court Palace with my dad
And finally, a good ol' jump photo in front of Buckingham Palace!

Vintage Exeter

Weeks ago the fam went to visit my sister in Exeter where she's doing her Masters
I've never been before and luckily we picked a weekend where the weather was co-operating! Not going to lie, most of the time it revolved around food (not complaining) but definitely gained a few after. The photos show this cute little vintage afternoon tea cafe, the decor was so cute and their fresh lemonade was perfect for the summers day.

Also went to this little alley with an amazing vintage shop and retro cafe attached to it at the end - follow the pink!
