Weekly Roundup











001 I received my first ever Graze box this week! I absolutely loved it so much!! My boyfriend has ordered one with my free box voucher and it's due Monday, although I will be at home so I can't have a nibble on it :( (it's more for me than him!!) He said he would save it until I'm back, but we'll see about that! Boyfriend + food lying around = none left for me!!!


002 We bought these lovely fiendish fancies in Asda, but unfortunately Mr Kipling let us down (these were meant to be for our mini Halloween party) however....they had a best before date of 2nd of October, which is BEFORE Halloween...how silly! Well anyway, we ate them all the night we opened them! Yes, they were extremely yummy, ha!! A mix of orange flavoured icing with chocolate sauce and gorgeous sponge!


003 My lovely eggy lunch and a break from all the haaaaaard work I have been doing this week!! And my lovely cup of tea (I got a Clippers teabag from my bf's uni goodie bag!) I absolutely love tea, but I usually end up buying just a supermarket brand unless a nice fancy one is on offer!! 


004 I've had a few orders in this week and it's so lovely to know that people like what I'm doing!! These little tin candles have now been packed up and sent to hopefully very happy buyers!!! I need to get a move on, my first Christmas market is on 13th of November! So I have just over a month, Christmas will be here in no time!!


005 Ahhhh, the banana cake! I love baking (as you all know by now!) This was a lovely, moist and low in fat treat! Tomorrow is going to be a full day of baking as I am going home on Monday. My dad is a huge cake fan (and can totally get away with stuffing his face due to the fact he's a keen cyclist!) He's asked me to bake him loads of cupcakes to return with! I will post a picture once they are completed!! I also really want to bake some bara brith this week (bara brith is a gorgeous Welsh loaf with mixed spice, cinnamon, raisins and tea!! I could eat it all day long! Maybe I should spread some Welsh love by posting the recipe up here on my blog!!!)


006 I have been literally addicted to drinking tea for quite a long time. It started off in college when I wanted a warm drink during winter time, and coffee didn't appeal to me that much then, so I always had tea on our morning break! I have decided to keep this teacup instead of using it as a candle due to the fact it really reminds me of my grandmother and her tea drinking obsession!!


007 I can't wait for my next Graze box and I have to wait another week to get one! Sad times, but it will be waiting for me when I return back from North Wales!

Hope you're having a lovely weekend! My night will consist of Doctor Who, strawberry cider and pizza + chips!!!
