over a week in photos

Happening upon film sets on a Saturday afternoon walk / Staying at my friends in London / Getting up early in the dark for my internship.. ): / Inconsiderate people on my commute / Being made to do the shopping / Toasting my mums fruit-loaf as a treat! / Doing some research at university and finding my dad's company in a book! / Started a drawing.. that you can barely see (story of my life!) / Trying to photograph the birds on my windowsill.. / My one and only picture of the snow very early yesterday morning! / The ridiculously bright sunshine this morning / A cosy afternoon back home baking and relaxing. 

I've been a bit rubbish with posting this week - since the end of my internship and being thrown back into uni with a bit of a bump, I'm not really coping with balancing everything that well! I need to get back into the swing of things - but until then, have some pictures of things.. I like these kind of posts but I don't really take interesting pictures!

one non-blonde

I don't normally do recipe posts on my blog but I made these last week and my family declared them an overwhelming success, so I thought I would share these! These are by Rachel Allen, and I found the recipe by chance on the Good Food website, and they're SO easy to make. The link above will take you to the website - but I do recommend chucking in an extra egg, because it was a bit of a thick mixture. I also used dark chocolate, because I find white chocolate a bit sickly, but that's just me!
They were really lovely when hot with a bit of ice-cream or cold as a cheeky snack at lunchtime.
(Props for obscure references to songs in my blog-title? Just me? Haha..)

the only boy who could ever teach me

MAC Eyeshadow in Daisychain
MAC Eyeshadow in Copperplate
L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara
Rimmel Liquid Eyeline (forget the name!)
Chanel Perfection Lumiere
MAC Lipstick in Impassioned

This post is cheating a bit, if I'm honest. These pictures are sort of old - I posted some webcam shots here a few days ago, but I'm super busy this week, and wanted to have something to post this week! So here are a few proper shots of some makeup I did. I really love this lipstick, it's a perfect bright pink without being hot pink or baby pink - neither of which are are good on me! I'm continuing my love affair with Perfection Lumiere here, too..
