Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! I'm looking forward to a day filled with presents, yummy food and family. I'll leave you with some photos of the cupcakes I made for a friend to give as a present for Christmas. I also made some mini ones with fondant money on them to give out to her workmates, along with some business cards - nothing like free marketing!!

I whippped up a quick batch of cupcakes last night to take for morning tea as today was my last day at work for 2010! This year has gone so fast!

I made little ruler, pencil and calculator toppers to reflect my job (I'm an Architectural Draughtsperson by day!) They seemed to go down well!

All my Christmas shopping is done now, I'm looking forward to a big day filled with family, my pupppy, cake and pavlova!

Outfit Post - What I'll be wearing this Summer...

Black Heels - Ruby Shoes, Sequin Clutch - K-mart, Dress - Unknown, Earrings - Diva

Maxi dress - Cotton On, Silver slouchy cardy - Glassons, Black padded clutch - Equip, Earrings - Equip

Sequin T-shirt - Shanton, Black zip skinny pants - Trends, Bag - Strand Bags, Silver flats - K-mart

I love planning my outfits before I wear them! I can quite happily spend an evening playing "dress-ups" and trying out different combinations of clothes and accessories. These are some combo's I have come up with lately, I'm looking forward to pulling them out for different occasions.

I have included one dressy evening-out outfit, and casual (still sparkley!) outfit and a daytime outfit. i do like plain coloured basics in black and I add a touch of sparkle - I think it has the same effect as colour!! There is nothing like driving down the motorway with the radio up, the sun streaming in the window and sequins causing a disco-ball effect on the roof of the car...

Happy weekend!!

First Order - Buzzy Bee Cupcakes

Remember this picture from my Christmas cake post? Well it got me my first order - 6 chocolate cupcakes with buzzy bee toppers for a friend to give her Mother-in-law for Christmas. Very exciting! In fact, in all that excitement I headed over to Vistaprint to create my own business cards. I had been playing around with a name and a logo for a while so I thought why not get myself out there??

Check out my new name and logo for my cake decorating business on my new blog here...

I am now eagerly awaiting them in the mail, and planning my cupcakes. There will definitely be photos coming!!

On another note, I may have gone on a Trademe rampage. Oh well, I'm almost set for summer now! Photos to follow once I recieve all my items...yes, I said all!
