It’s been a hot minute since I did a spot of baking on my blog but look who’s back in the kitchen! I couldn’t not share with you how to bake this clotted cream cake with a citrus drizzle topped with chocolate that I baked the other afternoon, seen as I had some clotted cream left, which in my opinion is rather scrumptious. It is a twist on the classic drizzle cake which I am also partial to. If you are like me and are a lover of lemon, this take on a lemon drizzle cake recipe, full of citrus flavour will be right up your street – trust me. I promise you won’t regret making this which you can enjoy at the end with friends and family…or just yourself…same.
Instead of using icing, I decorated it with melted chocolate on top of the drizzle (made with a simple sugar and lemon mixture) because I just needed to sneak a bit of chocolate in the recipe somehow didn’t I. I love this recipe for a lazy Spring Sunday afternoon with a warm cuppa or even as a treat during the week for afternoon tea. What’s not to love!
Before we delve in, let’s just make this clear that I am by no means the Mary Berry of baking myself and it still tasted delish which is the main thing am I right? So this recipe is perfect for all baking abilities, quick to make and requires little fancy ingredients because no body has time for that.
I don’t know about you, but I always love having a bit of a blogging binge every now and again and catching up on the blogs I love and religiously read, as well as reading and discovering new blogs in the blogging world. I thought I would make made a list of bloggers I’ve been LAVING for the past few months that are definitely worth subscribing to, if you to are like moi and have started to invest your reading time into something that is a little bit more worthy. I always love getting notifications whenever these babes post and had to share them with you if you don’t already follow them!
Well, well, well, here we are, three years in. HOW CRAZY IS THAT? Happy birthday to us! Almost 3 years ago in April, little me from Yorkshire hit the publish button on my very first blog post. Although this blog looks a tad different from what it looked like back in the day, when my younger self quite frankly didn’t know what she was doing, I’m still the same person behind it and have the same intentions. Today I thought I’d take you on a lil’ trip down memory lane from when I was a newbie to the blogging world and the beauty community, up to now (which there has hopefully been some improvement!) It got me thinking the other day when the dreaded email came through my inbox to tell me that my Site Ground yearly service hosting was due to expire (which my bank account always loves) and I honestly can’t believe the time has come around again!

If you are a makeup lover like myself, you may have seen the release of Benefit’s latest makeup product– the BADgal BANG mascara. I happened to be having a mooch around Debenhams at the time and treated myself (am I right ladies?) and popped it in my basket! This mascara retails at £21.50 which for me anyway, is quiteee a bit. Butt it was my lucky day and it was on offer at the time! I do find with Benefit that you get what you pay for and their products usually are worth the dollar dollar bills. So in my basket it went. After using it for the past two weeks now, I thought it was about time I shared with you my thoughts! If you are thinking about trying this mascara out, hopefully you will find this helpful to know whether or not you should splurge your pennies on it! View Post
The other day, I was reading Sophie’s blog post all about the blogging skills she wants to improve on this year and thought it was such a good idea and actually found that most of the points she mentioned are fairly similar to the things I’m setting myself to improve on this year when it comes to blogging too. Although I started my blog at the start of 2016, there are still skills I would love to be able to learn more about and get better at doing. It got me thinking about which blogging skills I want to improve on in the coming months and thought I would share them with you!
