What I’ve been watching lately!

So lately I’ve been doing a lot of...let’s call it! I’ve been catching up on sleep and since I’m still ill...I’ve been trying to recover. To keep me entertained I’ve been trying to fit in as much tv as I can before the ‘busy’ period kicks in! So here are some of the things I’ve watched so far...

Playful kiss

So since I was going through my Korean obsession I decided to watch this because it has Kim Hyun Joong in and because it got 5 stars on mysoju! This drama series is based off a Japanese comic and has been very I was like what the heck let’s do it!

 It’s a cute story of how this girl had a crush on this ‘perfect’ absolutely horrible cold totally hot guy in high school...she followed him around everything (which I thought was a bit stalker-ish....I don’t remember high school being like that but hey maybe it’s just me lool)...As the story goes on you are able to see past the coldness he portrays ( and let me tell u there is a lot of mean-ness and cold-ness portrayed) and see traces of some of his true feelings for the girl. A lot of the time though I was left thinking o.m.g how mean can a guy get SLAP HIM! Lol but maybe again that’s just me and I wouldn’t ever stand for a guy being so obnoxious to me .......I think it would have been good to know a bit more of what he was thinking during the whole process...

Anyway if you’re a total sucker for romantic comedies because I could not stop Awwwing in various bits of the series like out loud awwing..! Some bits were just way too cute! The end was even sweeter! aw! lool its definitely something every girl interested in Korean dramas should watch...! 

Overall, its funnny, good cast, VERY entertaining, and does tick a lot of teenage dream boxes...For a total of 16 episodes it was good!

It gets a 4.5/5 from me!


Yes yes I have FINALLY been able to watch that...I know what you’re thinking...took me long enough but hey I was busy when it came out in the cinemas!

Lemme just said this OMG THAT WAS SO FREAKING GOOD! I mean wow...I was hooked straight away! To be fair I had to pay attention to everything to be able to understand it but wow it blew me away... the effects, the acting, the was all so damn good! It got a lil confusing when they were talking about all the different layers but who cares I was just memorized about all the stuff they were talking about....Can you imagine if inception was real...or just being able to go into someone else’s be able to build you own dream? C'mon that too good! I was afraid to dream that night! Lool All the stuff with his wife was soo messed up as well like was good!! Being back in reality and thinking you're still stuck in the dream messed up is that! 

*SPOILER ALERT*--> as in don't read past this if you haven't watch the film yet... 

The ending even through was frustrating was GENIUS!!! Like the fact we don’t know if he’s still in dream land (which I think he is) or he’s in reality is just too awesome!

IF you haven’t seen it yet DO SO PLEASE because it’s awesome 5/5!

Social Network

Now this movie was raved about so much! Apparently it had Oscar buzz all around it...I was finally able to sit down with my cup of coco and actually watch this...and I can honestly say...I was slightly disappointed.

Not that it wasn’t a great film because it was...I mean I did NOT know all that about Facebook...I mean half way through the film I kept thinking...wooow I actually have me I have facebook...! lool it’s so easy to take technology for granted these days...and the phrase ‘facebook me’ I actually use that more than I use any other phrase since I’m a proud fb addict!

Even though it was so interesting and intriguing to find out how this social networking site that started off from a Kirkland house dorm room has taken the world by storm ...I didn’t feel like it was Oscar worthy..I mean the blind THAT was Oscar worthy it was such a good film..Full of emotions and ordeals and it was just SO good (watch it if you haven’t I cried my eyes out at the end lol) ...the acting in this was good...I mean Jesse Eisenberg’s acting was really good and so was Andrew Garfield’s (who is totally cute btw)....but Justin Timberlake don’t get me wrong its Justin ‘rock ya body’ but Oscar worth acting? I don’t think so..? 1 he wasn’t in it for long enough to actually deserve and Oscar and 2...yes it was a good performance ...he is undeniably talented...but it was a little one dimensional if I dare say...or maybe that was his way of portraying Sean Parker...I dunno I just didn’t think he was in it for long enough to deserve one..

Overall, it was a good story, it was interesting and kept you wanting to know does make you realise how important social networking is though...!

I’ll give it a 3.5/5.

I’ve also been watching my regular tv shows The Vampire Diaries, Nikita and Gleeee...because life would be so boring without them! If you haven’t checked them out do because they get better and better as the seasons go along!! Nikita is relatively new but its so kick ass!!!

I think that is enough of a review so far..Hopefully I’ll be going to watch due date soon enough and I’ll let you know how it is...I loved the hangover let’s hope this lives up to it...!

Till next time..

Life Update!

I've been away for too long once again...its amazing days pass by so quickly and before you realise it..a month's come and gone..and so much has happened this month...

Firstly I've been down with this terrible cold for the best part of 2 weeks now and I can't seem to shake it off its getting annoying now...even though I'm kind of enjoying the husky voice since I'm known as squeaky! lool!! Its different..I do miss my squeaky-ness though like the other day I finally got my boots Card and I was so excited but my voice was like non-existent so I sounded hyper-sonic! lol

Anywaaaaaaaay I've been trying to make myself useful since I'm a graduate and there are hardly any jobs going SO I've literally been trying to experience as much as I can to see where I fit in and what my niche is..and I'm liking where its going...

I've got 2 teaching jobs at my university, yes the same one I graduated from but this time I walk in with a staff badge instead of a student badge so weird but I Lurv it! I still get to see all my medic friends and the 3rd year physios woop! aw i do feel old! and even though the days are variable its keeping me busy and I've realised its helped me a lot with my anatomy and all which is all good! Its given me more confidence with presentation as well...valuable transferable skills...Check! I've also got as a physio with a sports team which I am EXTREMELY excited about since this is exactly what I wanted to be experiencing! I'll keep you posted on how it goes...I was terrified on my first day but it wasn't too bad! =) I know more than I thought..go me!

However, the days where I have nothing to do I've literally been just resting to recover from this cold, playing around with my makeup, Online shopping, and just youtubing...*sounds boring but slow pace is what I need* and ow lets not forget watching like a billion shows! I think ill post reviews of all that I've seen so far in the next post..!!

Other than that, everyone's been really busy lately, with family stuff, uni stuff, work stuff and I haven't been able to actually meet my girls for a while so I'm suffering from core 4 withdrawal symptoms! Next week if the week though so its coooool!!!

haha on the beach Duabi 09 around 11.30 pm..all looking dead tired! still fabulous though!
They'll kill me for this!  
I promise I'll keep keep posting now that my hectic month has started to slow down a bit and I have a bit more time to myself! I've bought a couple of new things i'll do swatches and reviews on and all...Other than that...not much to say atm! I just want to thank everyone for reading my blog..I started this off thinking only 1 or 2 people would be reading this but I've been surprised! So thank you to everyone for taking some time out of your day to read my blog!!

Please don't hesitate to comment and IF you really like it please follow me haha *that was cheeky*

Right well...lots of love!!

Smiles.....*cheesy Alert*

So you ask what is the deal with smiles...they can brighten up your day, they can start a whole new chapter, they are great ice breakers...and from someone you love can shatter the earth and make your heart melt...

As you can tell I have a slight weakness for smiles..!! So my inspiration for this piece came after watching the accidental husband starring Uma Thurman and Jerry Dean Morgan...good film totally predictable...I did aww which means it was good...but it was soo plain..and easy watch! ANYWAY...the point is...Jerry Dean is the point! The guy has a KILLER the way he looks at Uma or did look at Izzy in Grey's anatomy...ah that  look..and the smile...Ah! Totally gets me! His smiles reminds me of what a smile really should be like...warm and safe and loving...lets not forget about Ian Somerhalder, Robert Pattinson and Chace Crawford haha..the list can go on to be fair..

A smile that will make me blush...a smile that makes me feel safe...a smile that will make my troubles disappear...a smile that would make my heart flutter and beat faster and make me slightly must be thinking ur expecting a guy to do that with a smile?! Goood luck finding that sister! lol I do understand I sound stupid....and like a total hopeless romantic but what can you do...

Now all this might seem like it exists in fairy tale land..but I disagree...How you might ask? Well I would say..the smile my mum gives me when I'm in tears and can't stop sobbing..that gives me warmth..makes me feel like I'm being looked after..makes me feel happy even thought my heart feels heavy...

Another example?...the smile I got from my little 2 year old cousin when I went back to visit after a year..she gave me her almighty grin and ran into my arms and whispered 'I love you' that smile truly made me feel loved I actually teared up!

And if you're really noisy like I am and totally bored on the train..just take a minute and see how some couple look at each other...the loving smile a guy might give to his gf...the I am so happy I am spending this minute with you right here..*well not on the train..but like in her company lol*...those little smiles can do soo much!! they mean so much at the time..they're such precious jewels..

So next time you're on the train...and you see someone looking upset or down...just smile at never know if who's day you make with your smile...or who could fall in love with you because of your smile ;)

It doesn't take long..and besides it takes less muscles to smile than it takes to go on try it..brighten someone's day!

Lots of love!

Dry Spell

Hey everyone!!

So I've been feeling a bit under the weather and totally un-inspired that's the reason why I haven't posted anything in a long time! I just didn't know what to write about...what to focus to get your attention and inspire you...


Last week I was talking with one of my childhood friends Salma...(I've known her since like primary school that's how long I've known her!) and during conversation I agreed to do a 'guest blogger' fashion piece on her blog..It was so exciting! Meee writing about fashion it was different...I've never really written about fashion altho I absolutely love it!!

Anyway...from what I presume it turned out quite alright actually!

Here's the link to her sure to check the rest of her blog out..its filled with interesting things!

I promise I will post something tomorrow I just need to be inspired first!!

be who YOU want to be..!!

Be who you want to be!

If you speak ever to anybody who’s either in high school or has been through the whole high school experience....they’ll all tell you how it’s not as easy and fun as it some they might be the best days of your life! But to others it’s a time not to remember!

For those who were lucky enough to be totally cool and have not experienced much of what I’m talking about..I’m so happy and thankful for you!  but unfortunately in today’s society this doesn’t apply to high school anymore this behaviour is not only being practised in school around children anymore...adults..Knowledgeable adults in our day to day life still act in this manner. Whether it’s at work or social gatherings, families where ever it may be...behaviour like this shouldn’t be tolerated.

There’s a great Anti Bullying PSA campaign that was launched in America this week featuring a lot of well known faces like Tim Gunn, Iain Somerhalder, Anne Hathaway.. etc talking about standing up to bullying...and never giving up. It’s a great motion to support and get behind.


Personally, I’ve been lucky enough not to come across major bullying in my high school years I was always the kid who got along with everybody and was nice to everybody....or so I thought! I didn’t experience the nasty bullying some kids these days go through but there certainly were a lot of things that could have made me less miserable in high school. Peer pressure, the pressure to conform and be just like your friends to fit talk, act, dress in a certain way so that you don’t stand out..the back stabbing the bitching the jealousy...ahh all that drama!!

Only after I moved away and came to the UK that I felt that I could be completely talk like myself to act like myself because no-one knew me and it was my opportunity to be the person I wanted to be...
I feel going through what I did in high school even though was stressful...Definitely!! But at the same time it has helped me be the person I am today. I’m no longer afraid to voice my opinion, I can dress the way I to whoever I want completely and totally who I want to be and if people don’t like it....well they’ll just have to deal with it. Through this I have made amazing friends, friends I can be so completely and totally myself and it makes me thankful to god that he’s allowed me to share my life with such people...overall I did have a great high school experience I wouldn’t change it because I do have great memories..But most of all I don’t think I regret any of it...

I think what I’m trying to say from all my rambles is...don’t let anybody tell you you’re not good’re not pretty’ll never be as happy or successful as someone else. You have to live YOUR have to make your life a life you’ll be proud of when you look back at it..Build you happy memories share them with those people who make you feel alive...wear your heart on your sleeves and most of all be strong...because those people who put you down now..Might be doing it because they’re missing something in their own lives...And the only way to get power back is to put you don’t let them get to you!!

Don’t be afraid to speak out because remember everything you’re going through today will make you so much stronger ....I always remember one thing Kandee Johnson said on her youtube channel and it literally struck home...the more people break you down..The more they make your heart shatter into a million pieces...the louder/brighter you’ll shine! Because a million shattered pieces reflect even more light to even more dimensions and places!

So never give up! Smile and let the world smile with you!! 

You are all beautiful in your own special way...and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!!

Lots of love!
(p.s....I love you Kandee!!)

Guest Blog....lil K!

Here is the last of the Guest Blogger Blogs .....for today at least this one cracked me up!

This IS a Man’s world!

Ever thought about how we speak of ourselves ladies.. i dunno about you gals but i’ve always heard us talk like we are the prey.

‘im waiting for Mr. Right to take my breath away’ – i hope you haven’t got asthma

‘Sweep me off my feet’ – you’ll hit head your hard enough

For those twilight fans – ‘Bite me’

‘Swoop me up and take me into your arms’ – do you wanna get crushed?

These are just some, im sure there’s plenty more. But do you see the pattern. I guess its nature, men are naturally the hunters, they pursue women and prey on us until we succumb to their powers. The thing is we love to be preyed upon; we taunt them with looks and our bodies. We secretly pretend that they don’t matter to us but we all know everything that we do is DIRECTLY related to them.

Dont you just love it when the guy chases you? There’s some sort of a rush about it, the feeling of being bait to a man is more alluring to us than ..i dare say CHOCOLATE! Yes i said it, god forgive me..

Despite this feeling, we are in their world. We wait for them. We act as prey for them. Think about it, if a guy doesn’t give you attention you will try and get his attention but if he doesn’t take the ‘bait’, well you move on. It’s their decision.

It truly is a Man’s world despite how far women have come since the caveMAN years we will never be the natural hunter. There are exceptions, there always are but for the majority of us, i don’t think we’ll ever be predators. However once we’ve got them bound to us legally, i think the true predator in us unleashes MUAHAHA!

Maybe it is a Woman’s world after all

Peace out! K-to-the-A-RISHMA x

The search for ‘the one’ waste of time or wait worthy?!

So this is what I wrote a couple of days ago when I was really feeling frustrated and annoyed at everything going on in my life!

People usually say you’ll find your ‘one’ one day all you have to do is wait.....
I’m sure as any girl would tell you, it’s usually effortlessly easy to sit there and think of all the qualities this ‘one’ will have and what he might look like what he is going to treat you like...and all those films like the notebook don’t really help! Lol you end up lying on your bed wishing upon stars to someday find this person...

What happens when you’re ready to find that person? When you’re thinking I’m ready to move onto the next chapter of my life with someone? So you open your heart and allow these people to enter your lives in order to find out if they really are your true match...

But what happens when you have met so many people and not one of them seems appropriate, what happens when all the prospects around you are so bleak that you’re thinking...when is my day going to come? I think my biggest fear by far would be to give my heart away to someone who wouldn’t take care of it and make it happy the way I always settle for somebody because I couldn’t find my one..   

A depressing thought I agree but it was becoming more n more of an issue in our lives...no1 around me seems to be finding anyone appropriate...our standards too high? Too picky? I don’t think what if I would like him a certain what if we try and match out dreams to a certain degree...doesn’t everybody?? But I was really starting to question my standards like seriously..

Going away for a while and taking myself out of this situation brought clarity to me that was really refreshing! I came back with a total positive attitude...I came back thinking yes he must exist...someone who will make my heart flutter and my palms sweaty and make me stutter and blush..he must exist..So what if I have to wait..So wait if I have to be patient *I’m not known for my it’s hard lol* but all this will make him even more special to will allow me to treasure him more when I do finally find him?! I’m not saying I’ve been dreaming of Iain somerhalder and I’m holding out until I’m with someone like him..*haha..but seriously he is hot lol* not by any means..but someone that makes me happy someone that would make me glow from the inside..bring out that secret inner smile...

I am not giving my heart away to someone who will not take care of it! I will hold out and gift it to someone worthy! I Don’t think any of us are picky I just think our hearts know better when someone comes along...

Girls should stand up for what they want and what makes them happy no matter how hard to road my seem!
The search for true happiness start now..!

So for this entry we're changing it up a lil bit...I talked one of my best mates to write a guest blog entry for my blog and she did such a great job! 

Guest Blogger : Lil K

There’s this little thing called LOVE..

It’s been going on in my head for a few years now, ‘What is this love?’ I have to know what this feels like. Whats the big deal, i mean its just a four lettered word, why is there such a weight put on it?
I’ll tell you why because its the most deepest word out there, it has the power to stop people from their normal routines, it has the desire to make one feel elated, it possesses the power to pull you towards someone like no other force. Not that i know how that feels.. i mean ive learned all this from watching movies. Big whoop!

The definition of love for me is non existant, i don’t know what it means, what it feels like and im afraid i won’t know when its my turn. I mean i thought i was ‘falling’ in love with someone waaaaay back when i was a kid but c’mon who can take a child’s feelings seriously. I blame that on the hormones. But if someone’s never known what love is then how is one meant to identify it? What if tomorrow i meet someone and it becomes serious how the hell am i supposed to really know if its TRUE love?

I think they should invent something that could identify this. Some sort of a barcode gun that when you point it at the persons heart it will scan it and reveal their feelings to you.. invasion of privacy i hear you say but dammit it would solve my problem!

But before all that can begin..we need to find a true match. What a depressing thought!

Peace out. K-to-the-A-RISHMA x

Korean Dramas...Yes I love them!

Now you might be thinking...Korean dramas? What? How? Do you even understand them?

Unfortunately the answer to that is no I don't but thankfully there are amazing people out there who subtitle everything into English to make it easier for people like mee!! So I first got into them in High school with my friends May who is Burmese and Garbo who is neither one of them is korean lol but we still sat there and watched all these shows in subtitle..the first one we watched together was My girl which was Hilarious and ow soo cute!!

Now again you're thinking but WHAT? there are shows like Glee, Vampire Diaries etc etc that you could be watching..and I DO! believe me I love those shows too but these dramas have a certain charm about them...I can't seem to stop watching when I start...! They are just so captivating, the stories they tell are so touching *the ones I watched at least*, they tug at every heart string you got *even tho i kno this is scientifically incorrect* and make you feel like you can't stop crying and smiling at the same time..

Plus, even though I am Asian there is a big culture difference and its just soo interesting to watch the differences in the way they interact and stuff...ow and THEIR FASHION omg I love their fashion sense I always have and always will...I love how coool and modern they look when they wear their clothes and only they can pull it off to be honest..

So anyway the one I certainly just finished was called 'Boys over Flowers' which is a south Korean Drama based off a Japanese comic I THINK..I'm not too sure...anywho I really really recommend it if you're a total sucker for love stories..I mean I was proper addicted to this.. every time I was on my laptop its like I couldn't help but watch a bit of it..its about this girl Gneum Jan Di and the story of how she got into this rich kid school and what happens when she meets this group the F4 and stuff....there's a great love triangle!! I really don't wanna spoil I won't say much but o.m.g I LOVED IT!

Now after watching the show it is VERY HARD not to fall in love with the characters because how well they are portrayed...even though each one of them appears all happy and content they all have their own story and their own struggles and the actors do a fantastic job at peeling back all the different layers these characters have to reveal their different dimensions..I was in a totally dreamy lovey mood at the end...I keep sighing every 2 mins!

The actors...LOL I dunno where to start...well the lead <3 Lee Min Ho <3 is HOT lol 

Lee Min Ho

*FYI - for some reason I think asian *as in Korean, japanese..etc etc guys are quite good looking...they ooze coolness! lol* to be fair...they are all cute in their own way..the girl is very cute too! Very Charming..n omg so talented she's an actress writer director illustrator..the list goes on basically..

Anywaaaaaaaaaay me being the geek I am...I kinda youtubed everything and omg half of them are like pop stars in korea...especially the other lead actor..Kim Hyun Joong is like the leader of a boy band called SS501..who btw have quite good songs *yes i dont understand them but those have subtitles too n the beat is good so yeah lol* n OMG he can dance I was like woow *i sound 16*

Kim Hyun Joong

Yes so I totally Geek-ed out and couldn't stop youtubing videos interviews bloopers and so on for a good 3 hours *gasp*...things like this really make me think WHY CAN'T I SPEAK KOREAN! but the shows help my basics so I'm getting there..

Right so I know this might have been totally random but I felt I needed to share my geeky-ness lol

Until next time!

Drop Dead Awesome-ness


So about a year ago through my love and addiction of US sitcoms, I came across this show called 'Drop Dead Diva'. Now I thought ow what a cheesy name saw the advert and thought hmmm interesting..this hasn't been done before..well that I know of or seen atleast...

So the show is about this hot model called Deb who gets into a car accident...goes to the 'waiting room' which is before heaven and hell and presses the 'return' button that was on her angel's desk. Now something goes wrong and her soul comes back to earth but get this..the twist enters the body of a how would you say this.. voluptuous super busy lawyer called Jane.

Now you can understand the difficulties that might arise with being in a totally different body but she slowly starts to appreciate her life the way it is and even starts dating. However through the series she still holds onto the hope of one day telling grayson *Deb's ow so cute bf* that she is in fact Deb and not plain Jane.

ANYWAY...I won't spoil it u gotta watch it...I finally watched season 2 finale last night and OMG like seriously it was good! So season 1 was funny, exciting full of singing and dancing because she was getting to know her self and finished off with a big cliffhanger. This season was a bit more dramatic and serious compared to the previous season BUT fear not because its still full of cute *aww* moments. You can see the relationship between grayson and Jane develop further AND stacey & Fred still there so its all good!! Stacey is Deb/Jane's bff and is sooo damn funny because of her blondness..! i love her! There are even a few musical numbers which are always fun!

BUT *SPOILER ALERT--->don't read further if you actually wanna watch the show* omg this season's cliffhanger!!!!!!! I was like NOOOOOOOOOOO at the end it was like dudes please don't KILL HIM! Especially right at the end when he goes Deb?? and its like ow god no no does this means he's really dead???

Anyway I think I spoke too much..ahh okay so I love the show can't wait for it to come back june 2011 *gasp june 2011 I know how am I meant to wait for that long*

Ah anyway...till next time!

So I've been hiatus-ing again this time we were whisked off to France by my lovely dad!! We went to visit some family friends in Marseilles..and it was SUCH A GOOD TRIP!
I had never met the family before ..they had spent a summer in Dubai with my dad and brother while mum & I were stuck in London around 2 years it was all HIII and owww this is your daughter ahh! lol

We were there for 5 days and it was soo good! I mean it wasn't what I expected France to be like to be honest because it was full of Arabs (Hi5) so it felt a bit like home and it was sooo relaxing and since Marseilles is an old city the road were big enough to fit 1 car! I tell you those people have guts to drive on those roads they were soooo steep and so narrow and they were 2 way!!! it was like ow god don't die don't die! lol!

Breath taking isn't it?!
Everyone was extremely friendly and welcoming, we were taken to all these scenic spots that took my breath away! They were soo peaceful and soo beautiful, I can honestly say that we met some amazing people who welcomed us so completely into their lives and showed us around..I feel so privileged to have spent 5 wonderful days with such generous people. I'm hoping we can show them the same generosity and kindness they showed us when they come to visit at the end of the month *yay excited*...well okay only Omar and tata but still..

Mum, Tata, Omar, Amu, Dad and mee!! =)

So I think all of us have come back with the determination of learning a bit more French before out next visit to France...however that might not be possible since I'm going to Paris for the day for my friend's b-day this week..Hollllaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!! lol 

But anyway here are more pictures! 


Amu, HuSs, Me, Mum...and the scenery!

Group picture of the top of Notre Dame! *freezing my butt off*

I love this picture! This was on the top of the Notre Dame and it was so windy! 

Group picture at the view port!

So here you go..That was my trip away! Hope you enjoyed looking at the pictures...I'm sure not as much as I enjoyed experiencing the journey but yeah lol

Until next time...

Au Revoir mon ami!!

Tuesday, 7 September 2010



Soo I have been gone for what seems like forever since my very first post..which isn't very good BUT I have a very good excuse. As you know...*or maybe don't* it has beeeen the month of Ramadhan which is basically this month where all the muslim worth fast from sunrise to sunset..well in England it has been like a 17 Hr fast which i thought was gonna be HORRENDOUS but surprisingly hasn't been so bad!

Anyway we we usually go to mosque and its a very spiritually uplifting month so have been super busy with that and family get together to that's my excuse for neglecting the blog...but now I'm back! woop!

Right so before the month started we actually did a lot of things that I kept thinking oo I should post that..and that..and it begins now! lol

A day before Ramadhan started my lovely cousin Abrar (Absi) and my friend Zahra K went on a cupcake expedition around london. I had seen this video on youtube about these 2 girls doing it around their home town and got encouraged so this was our adventure around london....That aim was to buy 2 cupcakes from each shop their most popular and one we liked the look off and then grade them against how yum they were and how soft and moist they were...

This is the first shop we went to, I loved the look of this shop is all pink and colourful and the decore inside was adorable!! So this place sold cupcakes * that were more muffins than cupcakes*, fudge cakes and lots n lots of sweets...

Candy Cakes- Covent Garden

How cute is this!!!
Blueberry cheesecake (popular) and double chocolate (yum looking)

2nd place we went to was.....Ella's this place is solely for cupcakes! its was very hard to choose only 2...looks very fancy doesn't it!

Ella's - Covent Garden *ppsst- can u see zahra with her purple hijab?? hehe*
Pretty Packaging

1 peanut butter cupcake (top Left), Lemon cupcake (top right) and 2 Oreo cupcakes at the bottom
3rd place we went to wassssssssss...*drum roll* Primrose Bakery who again specialise in cakes and cupcakes..they make cupcake tier wedding cakes and alll...they even have their own primrose bakery recipe book how cool..

Primrose in lol forgot where exactly it was..

lemon and lime (left), chocolate with vanilla icing (right)

The 4th place we went to was........Hummingbird Bakery! Now this one is really fancy and is very well cousin who recently got married got her wedding cake from there and it was DIVINE!! 
They are very well known for their cupcakes especially their red velvet one *DROOOOOL*...they also have their own recipe book they're THAT good lol...

Finally the lassssssst place we went to was whole sale wasn't for the cupcakes really but we found some anyway! hehe so they had these beautiful cupcakes and some vegan ones too which were interesting...all organic! woop! I picked just 1 up from was the most beautiful one and the rose was actual cream!!!!


The verdict:

Hummingbird Bakery won by a mile!! Their cupcakes were the best priced for the quality you got...they were soft, moist and the icing was favourite the red velvet cake came out on top as rated by all 3 of us..I mean its was just delish! Close second came the double chocolate cupcake from candy cakes soooooo good!...the rest were okay average for the taste and price.....

So there was one of our adventures...hope you get to go out and try these yourself!!

Have a great day!!

So as this is my very first post I'll just start by telling you a little bit about myself!!
So my name is Minaz and I'm a 21 year old londoner who has just recently graduated and is now an official Physiotherapist (i.e. Physical Therapist). I am obssessed with everything make-up, vampire diaries/twilight, shopping and shoe related!! I am also a massive football fan so watch it religiously! 

Here I'll be sharing everything from make-up stuff to day-to-day to sharing new/old experiences I might have..basically I'll just share with the world as much as I can.. =)

Well I think I'll leave it there...

See ya World..Don't stop smiling!!
