Baking Day!

Hey everyone!
There's no Blogger's Bookshelf post today, cause I've been reading the Harry Potter's recently and you've already had a post on those! I've taken a quick one-book break though, so you will have a book post next week :)

So to make up for all of that, I brought you a quick little "what I did today" kind of post!
Well... today- I baked! My Mam set me the challenge of making a cupcake-shoe, which is pretty much a cupcake joined to a stick-like object to make it look like a heeled shoe.

So it's mixture time! Woop woop!

Mmm, bright red cake cases!

And the mixture's in... About to go in the oven!

All cooked! :)

I made a bit of a mess... oops!

But.... Tadaaaa! Slightly messy completely unprofessional shoe cake! I'm so proud that it actually worked, despite the mess that it looks!

And this is what i did to the rest of the cupcakes- the bows are made of a sugar-paper wafer that you had to glue together almost- and they're so adorable!

But then with all the fun, comes the washing up. Which isn't great for your nails, as I'm sure a lot of you know by now!

But hey, it was all worth it. 

Jealous? :D They're so yummy hehe!
And that's all for today! I'll be back tomorrow to showcase my nails (you can see one in the pic above!) which are a part of Life in Lacquer's challenge! The post will probably be up around lunch time, so enjoy these yummy pics for now. See you then!


  1. Okay, so now i desperately want to make cupcakes! they look so good

    1. Thanks! You should go and make some :D

Your Guide to Barry M Gelly's!

Finally, the time has come for the ever-promised "Barry M Gelly Polishes Review & Swatch" Post! YAY! Now, now, settle down, settle down, and prepare yourself for an image-heavy post!

Okay, so that picture isn't too great. But there's the colours that between us (Me and Rhian) have in the Gelly range. We're only missing "Grapefruit" I think...

Swatch Watch: OPI 'Sprung'


Wooo time got away from me for a couple of weeks. Has it really been so long already? My apologies to any of you who have been eagerly waiting for new swatches (I know I have)! To make it up to you I've got a swatch for you today which, in my opinion, is pretty "in season" right now. I'm talking about the Rose Gold trend that's been going on for a year or two now - who would of known it would become so popular?

Today's nail polish is: OPI 'Sprung'. It sounds like it should be a spring green kinda colour... but nope! This polish is a beautiful rose-gold kind of colour with a perfect amount of shimmer to be classy and sophisticated. Don't believe me? Here it is!

Fact File:
Brand: OPI
Polish Name: Sprung
# of coats: 3 + (applies quite thin)
Finishing Texture: Smooth, shimmer
Cost: £3.10 at the time of writing, on

So I paired this polish with this gel-finish dotty topcoat... thing. That sadly, has no name, and was bought by my roommate…

Avril "Mille et une nuits" #32*

*This post contains an item sent to me in exchange for an honest review. Here it is a nail polish by Avril, called "Mille et une nuits" - No32.

Hello folks!

How are you all doing? How am I doing? Where am I? Who am I? So many questions...

To answer a few... I hope you are doing fine.
Yes, I am fine thank you.
I am in England, once again. For a long while this time.
I am Rachel, as always. And I have been missing from the blogging world for a couple of months.

The past 2 weeks I have spent job-searching (with success, yay!), catching up on Suits, and binge-watching Scandal. I want you all to go and do some homework and watch Scandal so I have somebody to talk to about it. Seriously.

Anyway, a few months ago I was lucky enough to be contacted by Avril - a french beauty brand which pride themselves on not testing on animals, and ensuring any of the ingredients used are also not tested on our furry friends. I highly respect this, and think that all companies should follow their …
