Five Things I Love Friday (On a Saturday!) 022.

I know it's not Friday anymore but yesterday I baked my boyfriend a super amazing Birthday cake and it took me forever because I'd never made one before. So the blog took a back seat as I was faffing around in the kitchen making a mess!

One. Rainbow Cake. 
This is the cake that I made my boyfriend for his birthday & I'm not going to lie, I'm really quite impressed with myself and pleased with how it turned out! It didn't all go smoothly & to plan because I'd never made one before so I was just kind of experimenting but I took pictures throughout the process & I'll pop that up on here next week. It goes to show that even if things don't go to plan, mostly they can be fixed!

Two. This amazing Temporary:Secretary necklace! 
I'm not sure if this is up on the main Temporary:Secretary website just yet but I saw this little sneak peek on the Temporary:Secretary tumblr account here and fell in love! The little hedgehog's face is so adorable & I'm majorly lusting after him. I think I'd call him Herbert because I like to name things & Herbert the Hedgehog sounds cute!

Three. This beautiful Joe Brown's Parisian Jacket & Angelas Legacy Tunic. 
I saw this Parisian Jacket on the website and instantly fell in love! I also adore the Angelas Legacy tunic top they've paired with it & I think it makes the most adorable & chic outfit that's very my style! I was invited to a Joe Browns event and unfortunately couldn't make it at short notice but I was extremely jealous of all the Leeds based bloggers that could go!

Four. This bunny feature on The Daily Bunny!
I really need to go and take Ralphie to get his injections so I can get him a cute little harness like this bunny has and let him hop around places other than my bedroom. Ralphie loves to explore, he's recently discovered that he can hop inside my wardrobe where there's lots of things for him to nibble on, so I just know he would love to go and look around other places too! The Daily Bunny is my new favourite website!

Five. This gorgeous photograph!
I saw this photograph on tumblr originally & traced it back to a super talented lady called Jackie Lehmann. Her flickr stream is full of amazingness & her etsy shop is nothing short of beautiful!


What have you loved this week? Any favourite blogs? 
I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend! 
xoxo

  13. The cake looks amazing! I tried making rainbow cupcakes once but the colours didn't stay put - ended a bit more like a marble rainbow cupcakes on the inside instead...oops!

  14. You've done a helluvalot better than me, on my boyfriend's birthday the betty crocker mix came straight out - she is my fairy godmother!

    Sadly this week I've been loving missguided, which is making me sad because my funds don't love me : / I've also been loving youtube? It's taken me years to jump on the bandwagon but i've spent ages watching videos these past few days

  15. Can't wait to see how you made that cake! I've been reading this book where the author made a cake every week for a year for her colleagues, I've been considering trying it and this would be perfect for one week! xx

    P.S GET THE EYELASH CURLERS :)
