Lounging in lockdown w/ Femme Luxe

(all items in this post have been gifted, however, opinions are my own)

Your girl's back with a new blog post, and a very topical one at that!

I hope you're all keeping well and staying safe.
The World is a very strange place right now, for me personally I've decided to keep my head buried a little, keeping myself up to date with the current situation but not to a point of creating a worried El heap in the corner of my house.

As my previous blog posts may suggest I have a fairly strong love for fashion, and with that comes a love of shopping.
With the current lockdown I have found myself scrolling through my favourite shopping websites a lot more and most specifically looking at loungewear, but I know I'm not the only one - the only way I can justify my shopping habit!

Anything comfy is always right up my street and today I've got some of my favourite pieces ever to show you from Femme Luxe, they're also outfits that won't break the bank, absolute win.

I really am the queen of loungewear, therefore, be assured, you can trust my opinions...

Firstly, we have the beautiful 'Blake' set.
This is a lovely pink off the shoulder loungewear set, and yes when purchasing, it is the whole set. If you're anything like me a matching outfit makes your heart warm whilst making you feel incredibly put together.

If you do love a good set Femme Luxe have plenty HERE in multiple colours and budget friendly prices.

This pink set really is the perfect combination of comfort whilst looking great.
However, if pink isn't your favourite colour like it is mine you can get this in 6 other colours so you really aren't short for choice.

For some real lockdown chic, pair this with some bouncy curls and your fluffiest slippers to make a real impression on your lockdown and isolation partner.

If like me your favourite colour is pink then Femme Luxe's filtering option to look at their pink loungewear sets only is perfect for you.

Not that I have mentioned it at all in this blog post that pink is my favourite colour (lies) but if you don't share my opinion and prefer a little more spice to your loungewear you have come to the right place...

Meet Shani, the loungewear set with a lovely little twist.

Once again this set comes in several colours, 4 to be exact, and really is something a bit more special than your usual loungewear.

If you're anything like me you still like to feel nice in your comfy's and want to impress even if it is just the postman as he delivers the newest additions to your wardrobe. My personal preference when it comes to joggers, is fitted and cuffed, I find these to be the most flattering and this is therefore another reason as to why I love these sets. Flattering loungewear can be few and far between but Femme Luxe have absolutely smashed it with these.

This camel set not only has the different design detail of the white stripe running down the legs and arms, but shares the off the shoulder jumper that Blake also has, once again making this set a little more interesting than most others.

Which of these 2 sets will you be buying?

As mentioned before Femme Luxe sell plenty of loungewear sets, but if you prefer to put your own outfits together don't worry there are even more options of individual joggers and jumpers to attempt to decide from.

Once again I do hope that during this very odd time you're all well and you and your families are staying safe.
I would definitely advise a little online shopping if you need a pick me up, popping on your favourite loungewear set and making yourself feel lovely. There really is a lot of power in looking after yourself and I believe that now more than ever we need to continue making an effort to make ourselves feel special, because we all are.

Have a lovely week and speak soon...

Feeling Fancy

"Pearls are always appropriate"

Anyone else remember when we had sun and it was actually warm enough to wear just a camp top out of the house?! No me neither! But here's an old blog post I found and clearly forgot to post from when that weather did exist.

Lemon Daisy Cupcakes

I'm back today with a brand new recipe for you!
These are perfect little Summer cupcakes for any kind of occasion. 
I personally made these cupcakes for my Grandma's Birthday, and everyone loved them, I also posted a shot on Instagram of them and they were a real hit so I wanted to share the recipe.
SERVES 12 Cupcakes


For the cakes:

125g softened butter
125g caster sugar
2 medium eggs
100g self raising flour (sifted)
2 tbsp milk
1 and a half lemons (for zest)
1/4 of a lemon (for juice)

For the icing:

100g softened butter
200g icing sugar (sifted)
1/4 of a lemon (for juice)
12 edible wafer daises - you can get the ones I used HERE

For the cupcakes:

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and line your cupcake tray with cupcake cases.

Using a freestanding mixer, beat together your butter and sugar until fully combined.

Add the eggs, sifted flour, milk and the zest of 1 and a half lemons and the juice of quarter of a lemon.

Then mix everything until completely smooth.

Spoon your mixture into your 12 cases until they all have an equal amount, I started by adding one and a half teaspoons into each case and then continued on until I had used all of the mixture and the cases where equally full.

Bake for 15 - 20 mins, or until golden brown and when putting a cake tester or knife into the cupcake and pulling it out it is completely clean.

The icing:
(I didn't add a huge amount of icing to the cupcakes because my Grandma isn't a fan of a huge amount of buttercream)

Add you sifted icing sugar, your butter and lemon juice to a free-standing mixer and blend together until the mixture turns a pale primrose colour and looks light and fluffy.

Once the cupcakes are COMPLETELY cool spread the buttercream onto each cupcake and decorate as you please! I added these lovely edible daises to each one.
Let me know how it goes if you ever make these cupcakes!!
