Sunday Snapshot Instagram Style 007.

One & Two.
This week I made oreo brownies and they were amazing! This is the first thing I've baked that's actually turned out as I hoped it would and I was so so proud of myself! I've been bitten by the baking bug & hopefully I'll be good enough at it by September so I can make my boyfriend a super amazing birthday cake!

Three & Four.
I've been using instagram for ages and I only just discovered the tilt shift thingy that makes pictures look a little bit more profesh! It basically lets you pick an area of your picture to be in focus and blurs the rest making it look like you've used a camera with a fancy pants lens! Those little doggies are key toppers & I bought them from find-me-a-gift. I love them!

Five & Six. 
Thank you lots for all your opinions on my specs! I absolutely love both of those pairs & since it's buy one get one free it'd be rude not to get both! My favourites are the first pair even though I think the second ones suit me a little bit more. They're both retro inspired & I can't wait to get them! I'm all about the statement glasses, small and subtle frames seriously make my face look even chubbier - it's not a good look for me!

Seven & Eight.
After much faffing around I got my bunny dress from missguided. The tag in the dress says s/m when I ordered a m/l but it seems to fit me fine. If it really is a s/m then it really shouldn't fit me but I reckon it's just got the wrong size label sewn in it. I'm not that small! I absolutely love it anyway, I'm bunny mad right now. Anything with a bunny on it I want! I was even in Sainsburys the other day and spotted salt and pepper shakers that looked like bunny ears & wanted them. ...I don't use salt or pepper!

I battled with my wardrobe the other day & finally managed to get it sort of organised! I find it really difficult to organise my clothes & anything I do usually ends up getting disorganised within a week. But I'm going to try really hard to keep it tidy & hopefully I'll end up wearing more of my clothes because I can actually see them!

I got a Babyliss Waving Wand & I adore it! A lot of people told me to get a conical wand instead but I'm not after proper curls in my hair - I look a bit like Miss Piggy when I do & it's not a good look for me at all. I crossed my fingers that this would give me big & bouncy waves & I think it's perfect!

Eleven & Twelve. 
This is the result of my first quick go at the waving wand. I grabbed 2 inch or so pieces of hair at random & held them on the lowest heat setting for about 6 seconds each and it took no time at all. I combed through the waves with a wide tooth comb and ruffled them up a bit to make it a bit messier & I'm super happy. Can't wait to section my hair properly and give it a proper go! I love how the waves give me so much more volume than I usually have!

Are you having a lovely weekend? Have you had any exciting plans?
