|Larger almost bun-sized pin curls.|
|The normal way I pin-curl my hair - lots of smaller ones for smaller waves.|
|The result of the larger pin-curls, teamed with flowers from Pearls and Swine and my cat necklace from Tatty Devine.|
|This amazing mirrored teardrop ring is also by Tatty Devine - a must for meeting for dinner / cocktails when wearing red lipstick as you can surreptitiously check your make-up!|
The reason I was dressing up yesterday was to attend a lovely 50s birthday lunch. The birthday girl is a huge fan of Formula 1 racing, so here is the birthday cake which I made for her.
At this point, I should point out that I am not a baker of any sorts - I can make good cake, but that's about it! This particular cake was a traditional Victoria sponge, with Pimms and strawberry jam and a vanilla and strawberry cream. Having made this has ensured that I've been able to enjoy a huge bowl of strawberries for lunch today. Win-win all around!
On that note, it's time for me to get my head back into Photoshop so I can share some sneak peeks of my recent work with you soon.
