#31 The Girl Behind The Blog..

Morning Guys! I have the day off college today, and as I'm pretty much up to date with my assignments it means I have time to catch up with some Blog reading! I've also just looked back at my Blog and realised that there isn't really much information of me and I don't have any pictures of me. So if you want to see the girl behind this Blog then here she is....


So this is me! I'm very blonde - and in personality too! I've recently gone back to college to study Uniformed Public Services and I'm learning to drive. I hate these kind of things where you have to talk about yourself, I never know where to start or what to say!! But after gaining 100 followers I thought its about time you knew a little bit more about me. So if you have any questions, I don't care what they are they can be as weird as you like! Leave a comment and I'll answer them in another blog post!

Also, thanks for those who have already entered my giveaway. If you haven't entered already, enter here 
Have a great rest of your day!!

#31 100 Followers Giveaway!!!

Happy Sunday all you lovely Bloggers! Hope you've had a fab weekend like me! Recently my life has taken off so much and I'm constantly busy, it's so exhausting! Today I've been Christmas Shopping with my bestfriend and have brought presents for everyone except my Dad as he is so hard to buy for. Shopping was also topped off by a trip to Wagamamas for a Chicken Katsu Curry, they are the don and perfect for curing hangovers!

Anyways, from my last post I've gained enough followers to take me over 100 GFC followers! I'm so grateful and love reading all your comments to me and seeing your views and opinions on the things I talk about. It makes me so happy, especially as I didn't really expect many people to read my blog. I think when you create a blog you want to share all the things you feel like you cant talk about with anyone else, but you never actually believe that people will generally take an interest in your blog and enjoy reading it. So as a thankyou I'm doing a little giveaway. Its not amazing as its done on a student budget, but its something I read reviews on all the time and wanted to try and when I finally got my hands on it I picked two up for my lovely readers! So enter and enjoy!

#30 All The Things She Said, All The Things She Said.

Evening lovlies! Can't believe I'm only 3 followers away from 100 and I've only done 30 posts! Wowee you guys are fab! Hope you've all had a lovely week and weekend. I know I have. I have constantly been enjoying and loving life at the moment, and even have a new someone in my life who is putting a smile on my face daily! I'm back to my ditsy, happy Hannah self! Also, anyone else remember the song which is the name of this post by Tatu? I thought it was slightly appropriate and linked! - yes my ditsy self is definitely back!

Recently I've been loving guys with tattoos! However, I'm still not a fan of the head to toe look of carp/koi fish and skull and cross bones look. But just the odd one here and there I find so yummy, especially when they are meaningful.

This new love of tattoos has also sparked an inner desire in me to have my own. Except I'm being very cautious with it as I know that if it is a rushed decision I could be left with something I live to regret for the rest of my life. But what I really do like are the quotes, I found a few images that I love on WeHeartIt which I'd like to share with you as it is giving me some inspiration. If you have any tattoos or share similar views please leave a comment, also any stories on tattoos, even if they are horror stories. My mum would be thankful if they were to change me mind! Haha..

Be aware, slightly picture heavy, I couldn't choose my favourite!

#29 Lemon Cupcakes To Make You Smile

I have had a really crap day, well actually it was a really good day. It's just the beginning to the evening has been really horrid, and I'm not going into the reasons why as it'll just get me down and make me angry. So tonight I want I want to post about some lovely sunshine yellow cupcakes I baked the other day as yellow always makes me smile! :)

To make these gorgeous little Lemon Cupcakes you will need...


  • 175g Caster Sugar
  • 175g Butter
  • 3 Medium Eggs - beaten
  • Lemon Essence - you can use vanilla
  • 175g Plain Flour
  • 1tsp Baking Powder
For The Icing
  • 200g Butter
  • Lemon Essence - you can use vanilla
  • 375g Icing Sugar
  • Yellow Food Dye
  1. Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas mark 4.
  2. Beat the sugar and butter together until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs a little at a time. Add the essence too. I used lemon but you could use vanilla or any flavour you fancy.
  3. Fold in the flour and baking powder and then divide evenly into cake cases. Bake for 18-20 minutes and after after baking leave to cool.
  4. To make the icing put the butter, essence - again it doesn't matter what flavour you use and 2 tsp hot water in a mixing bowl and beat in two thirds of the icing sugar with an electric whisk. Gradually beat in the rest of the icing sugar until you have a soft but spreadable consistency that holds its shape.
  5. Fill a piping bag with a large star nozzle, with the icing. When the cakes are completely cold, pipe swirls on top of the cupcakes. Decorate with what you like. If you don't  have a piping bag you can just spread the icing on.
Enjoy the lovely cupcakes, I know I have! ;)

#28 Vintage Over Essex.

I have to raise my hands and admit it that I am one of The Only Way Is Essex's biggest fan! I can't help but laugh at their stupidity but still love them all the same. I'm even starting to love the sometimes tacky Essex Fashion, especially as I am a bit partial to some FakeTan. But the thing that has got me the most its Lydia Brights style. Compared to Essex girls like Jess, Sam and Lauren. Lydia is a delicate little English Rose. She doesn't follow the same trends as the other girls, and when it comes to the show I give her credit for being so different. It seems like the Essex girls can't live without a bottle of FakeTan or hair extensions, which is why it is so refreshing to see Lydia looking so natural.

Personally I think that I would choose to dress in this vintage style like Lydia over the other TOWIE girls any day, she looks so feminine and beautiful. But then beauty is in the eye of the beholder, what one person sees as beauty another may not. What does everyone else think on Lydia and the other  TOWIE girls style?

#27 I'M BACK!!!

Hey guys I'm back!! Miss me? :-)

I want to apologise so much for the serious lack of blogging! After me and Luke split up I wanted time to clear my head and gather my thoughts. Well all that is done now and I feel so much happier within myself. I have a great family, amazing friends which is the main reason for not blogging as I've been out constantly and the best news is me and Luke are still great friends and I'm going to meet him for coffee at our favourite coffee shop Brown Bag tomorrow! Whilst I was down I brought a few pic-me-ups and in these bits included the new OPI The Muppets Minis.

Taa-daa! They're a bit beautiful and perfect for the winter months! If you like I will do swatches and reviews on the colours, so leave comments! Also I'd like to welcome all my new readers and now only 10 away from 100! Finally my last little mention don't forget to follow me on twitter, drop us a comment, and girls.. always smile. I find its my best cure for anything!
