Sunday Snapshot Instagram Style 012.

One, Two & Three. 
You're going to get sick of me talking about this rainbow cake soon but I can't help it because I'm so proud of it! This is the first cake I've ever made, apart from cupcakes, so I'm super chuffed that it turned out well!

I can see how blondes can get addicted to going lighter and lighter, sometimes when I look in the mirror I think I MUST BE BLONDER ASAP! The photo filter on this photograph has made me look insanely blonde, I'm not that shade in real life, but I can happily say the John Frieda lightening spray works a treat! My natural colour now is dirty grey blonde that does nothing for me or my complexion at all. The shade I am now is much more reminiscent of how my natural colour was around three years ago. Much better!

I had a bad day so I decided to bake some cookies to take my mind off things. Usually when I'm having a bad day I head straight for the fridge and eat its entire contents. Thankfully though when I'm baking I usually only want to eat a small amount of whatever I've made which is better for my waistline!

I can't do a Sunday Snapshot without featuring Ralphie. He also seems to like the cookies I make, he had a sneaky nibble from my plate when I wasn't looking! Naughty bunny!

I think my fringe has grown out! 

My boyfriend bought me a milkshake home this week. I can't lie, it was pretty yummy but I do not want to know how many calories was in that. No thank you! Although why do I get the feeling someone will look it up and tell me in the comments?!

I ate a pizza. Well, a bit of a pizza. The pizza was disappointing. I don't think I like pizza anymore. 

After the disappointing pizza I ate some mandarins. They were much nicer. Fruit is better than pizza. 

Eleven & Twelve. 
I had a lazy Saturday. I did not want to wake up so I passed the time taking photos of my ceiling. I like that light shade, it's pretty! Lazy Saturdays mean that my face is a make up free zone! Hello dark circles, I wish you weren't on my face!

If this post goes up properly, you never can tell with blogger & its scheduling facility, I shall be on my way into Nottingham for a day of shopping (hello Primark! I haven't seen you in a while!) and most importantly - sushi! Om nom nom. The kaiso salad is my favourite, I can't wait!

Are you enjoying your weekend? Have you had any exciting plans or have you been enjoying lazy days like me?

  15. I am definitely trying out the John Frieda lightening spray although I know what you mean about going blonder! When my hair was bleached before it ended up practically white oops! xxx

  19. The cake is amazing! I also love your hair, and completely understand the lightening addiction. My hair is naturally a meh blonde, and for a while there I kept going lighter and lighter (up until I cut it all off and dyed it black.) I keep thinking about going back to blonde, and if I looked a tenth as good blonde as you do I would go back in a heartbeat.

  20. Oh wow, I love that cake! Well done! :)
