The Perfect Sunday

In the past I've had a bit of a love/hate relationship with Sundays. On the one hand it's the perfect day for chilling out but then the pre-Monday dread would set in. I'm not really one for lounging around in my pjs on a Sunday, I like to keep busy & do things so I've tried my best to combat the pre-Monday dread by doing just that & making sure Sundays are full of fun things instead of wishing away the day. 

As you'll have seen from yesterday's post, the first thing I did was to get up & make jam. I just felt like being productive & I now have quite a few jars of raspberry jam to enjoy & share with friends & family. Then after catching up with all things blog related, I braved the rain & headed down to Kings Road for the Frock Me vintage fair at Chelsea Town Hall. There were so many lovely, pretty things there, I had lots of fun browsing around.

I had a little wander up the Kings Road, with lots of lovely things catching my eye including some mouth watering delicious looking cakes & then headed to Kentish Town to enjoy a very chilled out evening of an amazing veggie Sunday roast dinner & boardgames with friends at the Assembly House.....bliss!

What's your perfect Sunday?

Homemade Raspberry Jam

Hi my name is Jasmin and I like making jam!......Some people who know me say I have Grandma like ways what with my love of making jam, baking, crafting, knitting and gardening but I'm equally happy out having fun with friends or being at home making jam or baking, I guess that's just how I am. I woke up this morning and just felt like making jam, it's such a perfect activity for a Sunday.

Great Pink Bake Off

We held a Great Pink Bake Off cake sale at work in aid of Breakthrough Breast Cancer. I decided to make old fashioned fairy cakes to donate to the cause & I spent a fun afternoon decorating the fairy cakes with my niece & nephew.

Bourjois Java Rice Powder

When I spied this pretty vintage looking powder, my face lit up in the aisle in Boots. This is available at all Bourjois stockists now, for £9.99. The Java Rice Powder is a re-release and re-formula of a product that first came out on the beauty market almost 150 years ago.

October Giveaway!!!


I'm so excited to be doing my first blog giveaway and as I've mentioned before to celebrate my little blog I will be doing a giveaway each month until Christmas. Following on from my Revlon Cherries in the Snow post, this month is the Revlon Cherries in the Snow lipstick and nail varnish giveaway. One of my friends has also made and donated the blue Origami Crane to the giveaway so it's all up for grabs!


Nars At First Sight palette

I have lusted after the gorgeous Nars palettes for absolutely ages and the other day after receiving an email from Nars about the At First Sight palette (£45) I knew I had to have it, so I treated myself and it hasn't disappointed at all!

The palette consists of 6 shades; 1 blush, 1 bronzer and 4 eye shadows. These are all best selling Nars shades which includes Deep Throat blush (some of the Nars names take a little getting over), All About Eve, Bellissima, Codura, Noveau Monde eyeshadows and Laguna Bronzer.

I already have the Deep Throat blush and Laguna bronzer in the full size and I love them both. The Deep throat blusher is such a pretty peachy-pink shade which gives the right amount of shimmer without any large glittery particles. Laguna for me is more of an all over bronzer as the shade, when gently applied isn't that much darker than my natural skin tone, so I like to use it to give a natural warm glow.
