What a treat! The wonderful ladies at Bakes By Mama gifted me a little box of cupcakes, chocolate dipped strawberries and Biscoff truffles - and they were absoloutley divine.

Just look at how lush their cakes are:


If you didn't know already, my day job is running my digital marketing business Beauty of Business, where I help UNREAL female bosses create an amazing online presence; from Instagram to Ecommerce - my passion for helping other female business owners grew out of my blogging passion - I love to work with local, independent entrepreneurs who are living their passion - and Bakes By Mama is no exception. She slid into my DMs like a pro, and

"of course! I'd love to try your cakes and tell the world how wonderful they are!"

It's super important, especially coming out of the pandemic, to support our fave independents where we can, and if I can do that through eating copious amounts of cake - I am game! I've ordered a box of 12 for this weekend as they were that fabulous. Just doing my bit for the economy and my waistline!


I was absolutely spoilt by Bakes By Mama, they indulged my cake passion with:

Freshly baked vanilla sponge and fresh cream icing topped cupcakes, in colours that match my feed (thank you!)
Homemade Biscoff Truffles (actually to die for, 2 were not enough!)
Chocolate dipped strawberries (for my inner die hard romantic)

Which to choose? No contest: I ATE THEM ALL. I jest, I did share them with my lovely blogger gal pal Danielle Levy as well; we were having a blogger date.


Fret not my cupcake connoisseurs, you can head to Bakes By Mama's Instagram and drop them an order request and have a box of goodies delivered fresh to your door. What a world we live in! How utterly divine!


Well, I had a full on photoshoot with my box of cakes, which you can go and watch at your own viewing pleasure on my Instagram.

Check out my cute little stop motion before you go though:

Have a wonderful week, stuff your face and remember:

Happy National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day guys!

I have spent this national holiday creating cute photos for the 'gram; getting back into being creative and having a goal with a plan so I can make beautiful content - because it makes me happy! And so does eating cookies!

Here's my fab edit of the day - you can go check it out on my Instagram too - lemme know what you think in the comments - be kind, I'm still learning. Keep reading to find out what I used to create it! I've created links for all the apps and equipment so you can treat yourself and go on a creative spree too!

I basically took a pic of my hand against a plain background holding my fave cookies (technically they are shortbread, but who's keeping tabs?) And they are from Tesco. Go add them to your online shop NOW:

I took a pic of myself from behind using a bluetooth remote for my iPhone set in a selfie ring.

I then used my fave editor to remove the background on both pics. Added them to so I could do the composition of the photo. I added a peach background so it went with my new aesthetic (we're going nude and rose gold guys!) then I used the app PhotoRoom to add a few shadows for depth. Et voila! Cute little creative pic to celebrate the day.

I am now working on setting up my You Tube Channel which will be centred around National Days - because I LOVE THEM. They are so useful to inform your content and a great way of jumping on noisy hashtags on Instagram.

Yesterday was National Watermelon Day which I missed, but, better to be late than never, so I'm about to go put ma face on and then take some cute shots for my Water Melon pic - watch this space!

See you all tomorrow for #NationalUnderwearDay - gotta think about how I'm doing this one, because I am definitely not brave enough to put me knickers on the internet!

Have a fabulous day, stay positive and catch up soon.

I've ran behind this week, but ever the determinist, I'm cracking on with my posts. Just because they're late doesn't mean I've failed - haha! So I tell myself. Showing up is super important, so here I am showing up at midnight to play 'catch up'. This week I have some fab content to play with and to inspire you all this so here's what's on the agenda.

1. Off to See Amelie @ The Playhouse

My birthday treat to myself is to see Amelie! It's been on my top 5 fave films of all time since I was 15, and it's not budging anytime soon. I need to pick up raspberries this week to create my homage post - if you know, you know!

2. Sundays @ Il Forno

I recently had the pleasure of being invite to Ilforno for a fabulous Sunday roast, so I owe you all a fabulous write up about my new favourite roast in Liverpool, because, no word of a lie it is incredible. I can still taste that red wine gravy. Mmmm. You can watch my experience here.

3. Home made Pumpkin Spice Lattes

You've read all about my first Pumpkin spice Latte experience haven't you? Well now it's time to create my own! I''m doing a Sunday pyjama party / social media chat with Ashton - who runs the incredible Sparkle Exclusive Networking group - and we're gonna get all autumnal with our homemade recipe in festive pjs - make sure you tune in!

4. My Glossy Box Calendar

Wahhhhh! IT IS HERE! I mean this has to be the poshest advent calendar I've ever got - I mean - look at it! It's loaded with over £340 worth of products. I mean - wow! It retails at £80 but if ou subscribe to glossy box you get it for £70! I mean, it's not cheap by any means, but it's what I chose to buy with my birthday money off ma team mates. So win win - thanks guys!

5. Cinnamon Coffee Body scrub

I went to the Muse Beauty Booking app launch last week and in the goody bag was this Cinnamon Coffee Scrub from The Coffee Scrub Co. I've never tried a coffee scrub so I'm super excited to let you guys know what it's like and if I recommend it as an exfoliating treatment! Have you tried one before? Let me know!

So that's some of my plans for this week's posts. I 100% gonna try to do them on time, if I don't, no judgement haha. And happy Reading!
