Autumn.

  Autumn is my favourite time of year. I do love the beautiful warm, activity packed days of Summer. But I’m naturally a hermit, my home is my sanctuary and If I don’t have too, I’d prefer to just not go anywhere. During the Autumn months, its cold, grey, wet and generally miserable.

Boston cream cupcakes.

  I’ve never had a Boston cream pie, i’ve no idea why not. They look amazing, a custard-cream filled cake, topped with a slathering of melted chocolate. It makes me drool at the thought.

Skincare Saviour.

Over the past few months my skin has suffered an unknown change, my chin imparticular has bared the brunt … [Read more…]
