Recent Buys...

Hubby and I are currently saving the pennies for our honeymoon to Las Vegas in 2014 so I haven't been buying anything for myself recently apart from the essentials but yesterday which we were out shopping in Southampton I popped into Next as I had seen these cute Owl Slippers online. I thought it was fate when I looked and they had one last pair in my size so I bought them. It's my birthday tomorrow and I know that I will be getting some money from my Grandparents as they always like me to pick what I want and use the money for it rather than putting it towards bills. They're so comfy! They were £16 and wouldn't normally spend this amount on slippers but I only like wearing the boot style ones like these. My sisters bought me a lovely pair from Accessorize a few years back but they are so old and tatty now that I thought it was time to upgrade - especially as the autumn/winter season is starting to close in.

What do you think to my new buy?

National Cupcake Week

As its National Cupcake Week this week (and also my birthday week - whoop!) I thought it was only right that I did a post on cupcakes.

Last night I drove to Southampton to go to my favourite little cupcake stall in West Quay shopping centre. The stall is called Dream Cupcakes and they have lots of lovely little cupcakes on display We always go there whenever we pop into Southampton so have tried lots of the ones they have to offer so we picked something we already knew we liked.

It's a chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting and a little piece of flake in the top. They smell so yummy and taste even better! They come in a lovely pink box with a little holder inside and they give them to you in a pink bag too!

Have you made any cupcakes this week?

Dr Who is back!

I am a huge fan of Dr Who and this evening was the return of the new series 7 with an episode called "Asylum of the Daleks". Luckily my hubby is away this weekend (as he doesn't like it at all!) which meant that I was able to sit down and watch it without him saying that it is a complete load of rubbish!

I'm not going to go into the story of the episode as I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't yet seen it but in my opinion it was definitely better than some of the episodes in the last series. 

I just hope it can continue to impress!

Are there any other Dr Who fans out there? And what did you think to tonights episode?
