Twenty one turns 23

                                                                     Happy Easter Everyone!
I've just cooked a huge family dinner and now I'm finally relaxing and catching-up with the blog, sadly I have no Easter egg to much on after dinner. While I have some free-time I thought I would write a little bit about what I've been up to this week; it's probably obvious from my title that it was my Birthday this week.
 I turned 23 Monday and I can honestly say this was THE best birthday I have had, I got to do everything I love to do. On Monday I saw the musical CATs which was amazing and really made me remember how much I love theatre (and is actually what I have chosen to write my pursuit of happiness post about). The day after my Birthday I was whisked away for a birthday get-away which was just what I needed. I have added some photos of what I wore whilst away.

Enjoy your Easter

Simple lemon birthday cake

It was my Birthday yesterday, so instead of buying a cake I decided to make a simple lemon cake which Is one of my favourite cake flavours. I used a simple sponge recipe with the addition of two lemons and also made a lemon syrup for the top.

250g of Self- raising flour
250g of Caster sugar
250g of butter
4 eggs
2 large lemons (use the juice for the lemon syrup)
100g icing sugar
This cake is super simple to make and it tastes so yummy. Enjoy!!

Pink lips and peplums

                       Top: ASOS
                         Belt: ASOS
                              Skirt: Primark

Although it's spring the weather very much resembles winter. I remember this time last year it was so hot, oh how things change! This week I wore one of my favourite styles; the peplum. The peplum top goes with everything and that's what I love, it is however a little baggy on the waist but adding a belt with erase any concern. To finish my outfit I wore A maxi skirt with thigh split and ankle boots, which you can't see in the pictures (sorry)

Sunday Catch-up #12

Its been a while since I have done a Sunday catch-up but I'm back.

Life's been pretty hectic lately and its took me this long to find my feet. I thought I would update you all about this weeks happenings. First off I have crossed off two of my goals on my blog, I have passed the 25 followers mark which I am very happy about, thank you all for being interested in my blog. I have also lost a total of 3 stone since starting my blog and will be doing an overdue post on whittling down the scales which features on the blog once a month.

Two days ago I was featured on homepage as blogger of the day which was a great surprise and through that I had a lot of interest in Twenty One.

To end the week after doing lots of writing for my course, I went shopping and got a load of bargains which I can't wait to wear so keep a look out for some outfit posts this week. Below I have put a few pictures of me before and after the weight loss, this before picture was me at the start of my blogging journey.
