A Little Pick Me Up...

Hey Everyone...

Just wanted to show you a few guilt free things I picked up yesterday to make me feel better whilst being on this difficult detox...

I popped in on poundland (always great for a bargain and I never feel too guilty unless I buy more than a few items) and I got myself these...


Not just a treat but useful too, as last time I baked and needed a round cutter I had to use a tin lid to cut out the icing lol - so these were fantastic value - especially as they have both straight and crinkled edges.

And I picked up these for the wedding...


Some of them will just be used for decoration but I'm also planning to make cupcake wrappers out of them for our wedding cupcakes. I was all set to buy card ones when I found these on ebay and knew I could make them myself...



See looks easy... I hope! Think I'll put off making them for a while, as I started making doilie confetti cones a while back and already look a bit squished!

And on the way back from Ally Pally yesterday we pulled over at our local flower stall and the fiance bought me some pretty carnations...


I love the different reds, and baby's breath just makes it all the prettier!

Right I'm off car booting so hopefully I'll have some goodies to show you this evening. Have a lovely Sunday everyone...

P.S. I'm half a stone down in 6 days - go me! But the irritability and sugar cravings are kicking in - wish me (and the fiance) luck for the next 6 days!

  3. I love the doily trick! It's such a great idea as the cupcake sleeves are soooo expensive!

    Unfortunately it's raining here so no boot sales for me!

  5. That's such a good idea using doilies to warp around cupcakes - one of those "duh, why on earth didn't I think of that?!" moments :)

    I had the bootsale angels on my side today, hope you did too x
