I’m not talking about myself or being big headed in the post title. It is simply the name of my lipstick! I got Ravishing by MAC when I went to Manchester at the beginning of the week. Yes I’m back! Sorry I haven’t posted sooner. I have been so tired these past couple days so wanted to spend them relaxing before I go back to work tomorrow (boo). This lipstick caused a bit of a drama whilst we were there. Dan bought it me as a treat in Selfridges in the City Centre, but when we got back to our hotel room it wasn’t to be seen. I must have dropped the (teeny weeny) Selfridges bag somewhere between leaving the store and walking to the station. We went to quite a few places in between ( Krispy Kreme, Zara, Paperchase, COW) so it could literally be anywhere. Somebody somewhere has a nice new MAC lipstick for free that should have been mine! Anyway, we took a trip to the Trafford Centre on our way back to Preston, and Dan was lovely and bought me a replacement. Needless to say I held on to this one for dear life whilst walking round the other shops. Anyway, this is what I wore today. The shorts are also a purchase from Manchester for a tiny £4 – bargain!

Blouse – Charity Shop

Vintage Shorts – COW Manchester

Tights – Primark

Boots – Topshop

Ring – Topshop (I think!)

Necklace – Ever Ours

Nails – Mod-ern Girl by OPI

Lips – Ravishing by MAC

Also today I did a spot of baking. Here’s some sneaky snaps of what I made. I found both the recipes on the Waitrose website. They are white chocolate chip cookies and toffee ginger cakes. They were both fairly simple to make, apart from the icing for the cakes. I attempted to make it twice but it didn’t turn out quite right in either try, but it still tasted right! They are both really nice, especially the cookies!

What are your plans for the weekend? I’ll be working most of mine!

  1. That outfit is lovely, the shorts are such a pretty colour. Such a shame that you lost your lipstick, but that's so sweet of your boyfriend replace it 🙂
    Those toffee ginger cakes sound so amazing! I'm gonna have to try baking those.

  2. Those shorts are fab – what a great vintage find! I've never had toffee ginger cakes but I do like just ginger, so they can only be a tastier improvement – yummy 🙂
