Ebay & Cupcakes

I've had my eye on this peter pan blouse for a while and even blogged about it here after doing a bit of window/screen shopping. Well I didn't know if I liked it enough to part with thirty eight hard earned pounds so scoured ebay and found a seller acutioning a few off all for around the 20 mark. I got to bidding and managed to win the auction for 19.99! Winner.

I'd also seen these wire headband things (such a literate description) in Newlook for 7.50, but ebay had them for 99p. Quick to snap up anything that'll cover my yellow root head I slammed the buy it now button and had both of my purchases in a matter of days.



The only problem with the top is it's a size 10 and it's massive. The sleeves sort of droop over my hands and I don't know if it makes me look a bit bag lady? It's also very see through which i'll have to address - Shabby old primark types are best hidden.









Eurgh these pictures looked a lot less awkward on the tiny preview screen. Why must I look zombified in the evening?! Could maybs be something to do with the stress of my rubbish car m.o.t today - £397! All they did was put two new tyres on it and in the process covered it with black stuff that i've just braved the dark to clean off.

Anyway to chear myself up and to keep occupied on my night in I decided to make some malteser cupcakes that I can scarf down later. I tried these a while ago after seeing them on Rosie's Blog and they're gorgeous. Definitly recommend the recipe and her blog, it's a rather good read and her baking skillz make me "well jeal". Although I probably won't be o nice about them once i've gained a stone or two!





Hope everyone's having a good weekend.

ooh and p.s the headband can be found from this seller and the top was from this chap/chapesse.

    Glad you liked the snaps of my house - trust me, there are a lot more where they came from, I actually worry I'm talking too much about house related things on the blog!
