I-think-I'm-actually-going-to-die-a-chocolaty-Death By Chocolate Cupcakes

My friend Gemma is a bit poorly and really needed some help today, so I took some time out of my hectic bank holiday schedule to aide her in some serious chocolate cupcake making.
It was essential in order for her to start on the long road to recovery.
I bought a couple home for Him and Mother (she's visiting tomorrow)...but alas, they were too good...I cant move I am so full. But it's Easter, and gorging ones self on copious amounts of chocolate is that right thing to do. Right?

Can you look at these and not want chocolate?!
Gemma got the recipe from here. (we used twirl bites instead of dark chocolate chunks)

I hope you all had a lovely Easter and indulged in some chocolaty goodness.

Super 8 film (cheat!)

Oh iPhone, how I love you so.
The '8mm' app turns your videos into super 8 film, adding gorgeous effects to make your iPhone movies appear to be shot on old projection film. I fear this takes the heart out of it a bit...but it looks so damn good!
This is a little shot of our new view from our loft/new bedroom!

When we finally get a mac, I am going to start making some little films. I think you could get pretty arty with this app!

Watch this space.

Nail Art.

I've never really been one to get a manicure, or be particularly bothered about my (or anybody else's for that matter) nails.
That was until I discovered Pinterest. Uh-oh!
There are so many amazing ideas! I had to give it a go. So here are two of my attempts (I do apologise as these are no way up to the standard of some of the posts I've seen!)

1.Ultra Violet tips on Grey
2. Parma Violet and Mint

These are some of my favourite that I found via Pinterest.
Grey and pink nails.
Zooey Deschanels amazing nails!
As see on Zooey Deschanel

Hello All! So last weekend I went to Rome.
Here are a few of my snaps from the trip, I didn't get as many photo's as I would have liked but everything was just far to interesting to take my eyes off.

This was the view from our apartment window, there was a beautiful market just at the end of the street.

Luke making authentic espresso.

Mmmmm breakfast, us making up for the copious amounts of pizza and wine.

The flower market


The 'Colly'

The wonderful girls (on tour) lunging outside the Pantheon.

I cannot recommend Rome highly enough. Everything about it was perfect, the people, the company, the food, the wine. Perfect.
