Home Sweet Home Cafe

On Friday me and my friend Katie went to my favourite cafe in Manchester - Home Sweet Home! It's located in the Northern Quarter which has lots of cute quirky cafes.  Home Sweet Home is an American style cafe that serves delicious breakfasts,  lunch and tea. Its got really pretty unique decor with miss match furniture and quirky little decorations. I wasn't brave enough to snap pictures of the decor but you can click here to see a google picture of the pretty interior.

The star of the show has to be the huge range of incredible cakes! They have loads of flavours like Oreo, Bubblegum and they do a peanut butter cake that I'm desperate to try but I've been 4 times in the last month and they've not had it each time. That's a good enough excuse to keep going and getting more cake for me! This time Katie and I opted for the chocy road cake which is chocolate cake, with lots of chocolate butter cream and pieces of rocky road on top. As always, the sponge was so delicious,moist and light. In my opinion they are the best cakes in Manchester both appearance, variety and taste wise.

I'd definitely recommend going to Home Sweet Home if you're ever in Manchester. I'll leave you with a picture from @HomeSweetHomeNQ twitter of their beautiful cakes.

Dusted Off From The Drafts: Revlon Raspberry Pie Lip Butter

This post has been sat in my draft box for a whole year so rather than waste it I've decided to post it now. Better late than never!

I'm not normal a bright or dark lip colour kinda girl so I'm not to sure why I picked up the Revlon Raspberry Pie Lip Butter a little while a go. I must have been wanting to get out of my comfort zone of pale pinks but whatever the reason I'm so glad I got it!

At first I wasn't to blown away by the lip butters but this one is a beauty! It's so creamy and moisturising but still really pigmented. The texture means the lasting power isn't the best but it goes a good few hours as the dark colour leaves a sort of stain. After the eating it's a must to reapply unless you want multicolored lips. I love the beautiful berry colour because if it's a dark colour without being uber vampy. My Mum is convinced this a red lippy but in my opinion it's more of a dark deep pink with berry tones.

If your after a moisturizing lipstick for all seasons then it's worth checking out Raspberry Pie. I'm glad I did!

Back From The Blogging Dead

I can't believe it's been 6 months since I last posted! Wow! Recently I've started to realise how much I miss blogging and being part of the community. So I'm back! But  since I stopped I have stopped buying so much money and saved a fortune haha.

I never stopped posting on purpose but I think it happened because of a lack of confidence mainly. Despite the fact I have followers and people read my blog I never truly believed anyone really liked it. Unfortunately I let a lack of confidence stop me from carrying on. But I decided to return! Right near exam season, I couldn't have picked a worse time.

So much has changed since I last blogged. In October I turned 18 and I still can't believe I'm officially an adult. I'm in final year at college and in September I'll hopefully be starting University which is a mix of terrifying, exciting and very stressful.  Little things have changed too like I have a nose ring, my hair is longer and a different colour. I'll be writing a post on my hair dye hell soon but it's still a sore subject.

There probably wont be very regular posts because exams are coming up but I'll try to post when I can. In the Summer there will be loads of exciting posts as I'm working at Glastonbury, going to Kavos and best of all a holiday to New York! Until then I've found some posts gathering dust in the draft box so I'll be posting a few of them and writing some new ones.
