#blackouttuesday

Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

My Christmas Cake

It wouldn’t be Christmas if I didn’t attempt to do a little bit of baking, so let me show you my Christmas cake.

If you are familiar to here, then you will know that:

  1. a) I’m the worst baker known to man and should be utterly ashamed with myself.
  2. b) I have had lots and lots of failed on here.
  3. c) I will never be on The Great British Bake off – ever.

So to summed up, yes basically if Alien came down and demanded me to bake them a cupcake to save Human-kind, all I can say is – God help us all.

I cannot bake, I do not persist the skills, no matter how much I try. And believe you me, if you are a long time reader here – I do like to keep trying.

With baking, I believe practice makes perfect and if at first, you don’t succeed – keep trying till you do.

So what that said, let me show you my Christmas cake, or what I’m dubbing it as a sponge pancake.

It kind of does look like a pancake, doesn’t it?

This was my first ever attempt to make a top quadruple layer cake. And I did pretty much alright.

I will admit, I didn’t have much of a plan, except to make a layer cake with plenty of icing and to decorate to make it look Christmassy.

As with a lot of my baking (and this could be where I keep going wrong), I tend to make it up as I go along. But there weren’t too many impromptus here.

I merely made the cake mixture and then pour it onto four different cake tin and then bake. Once it cooked, let it cool down and then start to layer it up with icing.

It was pretty simple, but the cake slices did turn out looking like pancakes. But Oh well, presentation isn’t everything, and fortunately, I don’t have Mary Berry judging me.

As long as the cake taste nice – then who cares what it looks like, and I can happily report it does taste pretty damn good.

So my Christmas cake wasn’t an epic fail – except on it pancake look – so does that I’m not the worst baker known to human; Well the jury still out on that one.
