Since getting my iPod Touch, I've started using Instagram (username is cupcakesloveme) to take little snapshots of my daily life. I always love seeing other peoples snaps on their blogs, so thought I would start doing a end of month post with all the snaps I've taken throughout the month. These pics are from the last 2 months, just to catch up :P
A quick ootd shot, with my new things I showed you yesterday...

Just a quick ootd. My sister cam over & we took a few outfit pics. Button decided he'd rather join us than go on a walk with Tallie (the little devil dog from my last ootd). See, I told you I don't think he is a real dog! :P My latest wig arrived for me, so today I'm super blonde. I love being able to switch up my hair from day to day!
Anyway, bye for now

Hi again everyone! Hope you are having a lovely relaxing Sunday :) Just a quick post to show you some of the items on my current wishlist, which I also think would co-ordinate brilliantly together, in fact I wish I had the money to buy everything this minute, so I could wear this entire outfit! I can't even pick a favourite - I need it all! Haha!

I recently got invited by Sofeminine.co.uk to take part in a blogger's style challenge. The rules were to come up with the best fashion buy(s) for £50 or under. They will be listing their favourite entries here, not sure when though! Anyway, I agreed to take part but asked if I could switch it up a little by buying fabric rather than a manufactured garment, & make my own item. They said yes, (yay!) so when they sent me the money , I immediately put an order in over @ Spoonflower for some of my own custom fabric. £50 bought me 4 metres, including shipping, which was plenty to make my own lolita dress. I think this is the best fashion buy, because no one else in the world has one exactly like it - the beauty of custom fabric & handmade clothes!
Spoonflower aren't exactly in my good books atm though, because I ordered another design a few days before I put my order in for this one & it shipped 2 weeks before this design & it still hasn't come:( They've sent me a replacement package, but by Fedex, who only recently charged me £15, most of tha was their "advancement fee". So that's not good:(
Deer Ring & Shooting Star Ring - Dolly Mixx // Pearl Heart Ring - Miss Selfridge // Pink Heart Ring - Republic // Marshmallow Bangle - Handmade // Pearl Bracelet - Evans // Sugarbunnies Watch - Ebay
I wore this outfit down to the park, whilst Tallie, as you can see, went rather crazy because of the joy that is water! Button (see a few photos up) is much more dignified & doesn't run around like a look, just paddles delicately. He especially loves going to this park, because it has concrete paths, & he hate getting his feet muddy on dirt paths! I'm not sure he is a real dog, haha!

On another note...

I was recently sent 2 necklaces by the lovely Amanda of Kuma Crafts to review. Kuma Crafts is an Etsy store which sells lots & lots of cute jewellery. Noticing my love of cupcakes, Amanda sent me 1 cupcake necklace, & 1 Ice Cream necklace. I love both of them, & as you can see, they look good enough to eat:P As well as cupcakes & ice creams, the shop also sells lots of cute character, diamante, & cameo necklaces, which are all equally amazing!
The laser cut pendants are all designed & hand assembled by Amanda. A lot of her pieces include diamante accents, like the ones she sent me, which I think makes them a bit different than other laser cut pieces. They look incredibly professional, if you look at the pic below, you can see they even have a little Kuma Crafts logo etched into the back of them. Because of the double layers, the plastic is also more sturdy than you might expect, so I can see these lasting a very very long time. I'd definitely rate them a 10/10 for quality.
Amanda has also kindly given me a 15% discount code for all of my readers (that's you!). The code is CUPCAKESCLOTHES15, not to be used in conjuction with any other offers/codes.

Dress - Handmade by me // Shoes - Miss Sixty // Cardigan - Evans // Bag - altered, from eBay // Headband - BHS // Ring - Republic // Bracelet - Evans // Tights - We Love Colors
New shoes & tights! I won 3 pairs of tights recently in We love Colors Curvy Facebook competition. I'm not sure if my entry has been published yet, but I got the tights yesterday, so I am very happy! These are the sky blue colour, I also got peach & lavender ones. So yay!
Shoes are from Littlewoods, from the kids section. I think that kids get the best shoes, I am always buying them if they happen to go up to my size. Most kid shoes do go up to a 6, which I am, so I am lucky enough to get to buy them! I don't think kids clothes have VAT on them either, so they are normally a bit cheaper than adult ones. Not these though, these are on sale for £42, down from £60! Eeek! But they are cute, & I love them!
I wore this outfit out shopping today (yes I know I shop too much!). I didn't actually spend any money, just collected & then spent my Boots reward points, on exciting things like hairspray & nail polish remover! :P I also got bought 2 hair garlands from Primark, yay free things! Thanks Mum :P

My nails of the day! Thought I would go super out there & paint each nail different - what do you think? My sister also popped round for a few hours, so she got me to do her nails too. We were obviously both feeling fruity! :P
Speaking of nail art, have any of you tried out my cupcake tutorial yet? I'd love to see pics! :D
