Amazon Sells More than just Books

Great Trucker Hat (available in many colours) * Cupcake Building Toys * Silicone Cupcake Trivet *Cupcake Tea Set * Cupcake Doggy Cushion * Cupcake Light Plaque
Once upon a time Amazon sold just books and DVD's and although this was fab and helped immensely in fueling my cupcake love it now is 100 % better, cause now Amazon sells so much more, below I have shown just a small collection of my favourite Cupcake goodies to be found on the wonderful world of Amazon.
So if you do one thing today spoil yourself Amazon sells cupcakes goodies from £1 to £100.

Wake up and Smell The Cupcakes

We all love to eat cupcakes, look at cupcakes and we know how we love to smell them baking in the oven, well now we can have that smell simply, no baking required.

The great candle brand 'Yankee Candle' has created a great selection called Vanilla Cupcake and trust me after a couple hours of it burning in my house its scrummy, so take a look you can buy online or in many retailers and the candles last forever.

Hope all had a cupcake-tastic weekend.


P.S. Even the car can smell cupcake-y.

Thanks for the Cupcakes

Two of my amazing blog friends have some inspiring Cupcake Posts over the past 2 days and I had to show them.

Firstly the awesome and super talented Laura of Katydiddy designs made the coolest cupcakes ever, especially for movie night, Popcorn Cupcakes, go to her blog and take a look and let her know how great they are.

Then my cupcake friend (realise I don't know you real name sorry :-<) from 'I Heart Cupcakes' did me a super huge favour, as she lives in London where I am visiting next weekend, I asked her if she knew any good cupcake bakeries near Knightsbridge in London and she replied with a whole post on her blog on a Cupcake Bakery tour of Knightsbridge, the kindness is inspiring, thanks so much and I can't wait to visit them and post my own piccys in a couple of weeks.

Love to all and hope your weekend is cupcake and fun filled.

Oh I could not stop myself

Now some of you may not know this but I have 2 obsessions in life (well actually loads but these 2 matter now) SHOPPING and CUPCAKES so over the past couple shopping trips I have been able to help both of these, so I thought I would show my goodies.

Firstly I went into Debenhams (a British Department store) to just take a peek at there cupcake range and I saw this kitchen timer, well I need a timer, so I thought oh I will have to buy it as it was a need not a want - lol.

I also saw these cute little shorts and thought hey anything with cupcakes will look cute no matter the size of the tosh. The cards I have bought for ART, this is something I have done for years since having my first house with not a lot of funds, I buy gift cards I like the print on and then put them in frames etc, so these 2 cupcake cards could not be passed up, once there up in the kitchen I shall show you again.

Lastly I was so happy when I went to get some of my usual magazines and found Good Homes and Crafts Beautiful both featuring Cupcakes and even some cupcake decorative papers, so all in all my shopping week has rocked and total cost for the lot under £30, no complaints.

See you tomorrow - cupcake dreams.

A bit of this, A bit of That

There is so much I want to show you today, but time is short so I will show a little and pop back later.

Firstly a few weeks ago I told you about a Cupcake ATC swap I was doing, well here is the piccy's firstly of mine sent out and then the great ATC I received. This was my first sort of 3D ATC, it was also me playing with my Sharpies on the sofa, I am no artist but I was quite pleased with the outcome.

Now on another note not cupcake I was tagged by the lovely Kyla (thanks you are so sweet) Its called the'Bag Tag' so me being a bag addict thinks this totally rocks.

So her are the Rules:
1. Post a picture of the bag/purse/handbag/pocketbook that you are carrying! Now, don't you even think about going back there to your closet and getting that cute little clutch that you carried before you had children or the last time you went out.

2. Tell us how much it cost! I know what you are thinking - a girl never discusses matters of money. Well, yes, but today we are gonna break that rule and tell! Yes, tell how much it cost. We won't judge! This is for entertainment purposes only. And if there is a story that goes along with this purse, tell it.

3. Tag some other girls. It will be fun to see what everybody else posts :-)

The Handbag I have shown I have been using for the past week, I change my bags alot, I must have in excess of 40 but some are over 10 years old. This one my hubby bought me for my birthday last year from Accesorize, I carry alot as you can see including...

My 2 Phones
Cath Kidston Purse and Medicine/First Aid Bag
Handmade Zip purse with contents such as Tape Measure/Nail File etc
Nintendo DS
Lipsticks and Cath Kidston Lip Balm
Passport - As I went on a trip to Belgium and France
Strawberry Postcard to be framed (UK hate giving bags out now)
Now for tagging others
I hope you all don't mind and can't wait to see your bags.
P.S. Here is the piccy of the valentine cupcakes my little sis got me aren't they cute.

A Great Valentines Day

Well my hubby knows what I love well and my Valentines gifts were Cupcaked out.

It was a great set of pressies to open before I left for a family day out, Cupcakes are always a great start to any day.

He treated me with a set of 3 Tea towels, Oven Gloves and a fab Apron, they all have the cutest bold cupcake design and although they are very useful they are likely to be only used for decorative use only (much to the annoyance of hubby).

I hope all had a lovely romantic valentines, whatever you did, I spent mine with my siblings and Dad but the hubby and I had a nice cuddle in the evening.


P.S. Thanks my dear Sister for my Valentine Cupcakes (piccy to be shown later)

Apologies all, there I was promising daily Cupcake Goodness and I disappear for nearly 2 weeks, this was not intentional but between my little cupcake getting poorly and I contracted a 4 day stint of food poisoning it has been hell here, but I am feeling better, Grayson is halfway there so hopefully I can finally get into a rhythm.

Just a quick post today, I came across this when a lady entered my OWOH heart giveaway at Innocent Charms Chats and I thought OMG this is so perfect.

Lets find out what type of Cupcake we all are

Just click on my result to take the quiz.

Its a very simple quiz of 6 questions, I love doing things like this, I am not sure if everyone would agree with my result but I am super nice.
This great quiz was created by Lots of Sprinkles, I am off to check out her blog now and say thanks, don't forget to let me know your results, I really want to know.

Love to all and thanks for visiting.
