V Festival

I had a lovely weekend at V Fest, full of music, (some) sunshine, rain, wind and chips.
Here are a few pictures from it, I wish I had taken more..
We were lucky enough to bag Hidden Garden tickets too! (thanks to Alex's dad). This meant we had a little area we could go into, that had MUCH better toilets, a massage area and bar that you didn't have to queue hours for!

The Baking Bug..

The last few days I have been rather busy in the kitchen creating many yummy things to eat!
This include a batch of 24 cupcakes that I took into work as a 'celebration' of my last day of work. (It's not really my last day there, but I decided to take a few weeks off before heading to University. I am still employed there, I will just be working there when I come home.)
Here is the last of the cupcakes I made, unfortunately, I didn't get to take a picture of all of them as they were eaten before I had a chance to do so!  

They really were too good to resist and looking at this now is making me hungry! So much for my summer shape up plan!
I also created a journal page about the cupcakes too.

The baking bug then turned into a general cooking bug and I found myself making a rather posh dinner the other night! Stuffed Peppers with an Avocado Salad for main course, which was 'nice' according to Alex. Then for dessert I made a Pineapple Upside Down Cake, which I have to admit is meant for 4 people, but we shared the whole cake between the two of us!! Whoops! But it was nice :)

Here it is on a Bob The Builder plate. 

I can't wait to do more cooking and baking!
I forgot how fun it is.

Hair Cut Time...

After 7 months, I have finally had a hair cut. 
I didn't really have much done, just more of a 'tidy up' at the ends, I also had my fringe cut back in, which had become ridiculously long.
I am fairly pleased with how it's turned out, lets just hope I don't leave it too long before I have it cut again.
