So You've got your shiny new iPhone 5 and all you need to do now is protect it, so check out 7 of these iPhone 5 cases I found on Society6. Take a look on their website and see which ones you like best.
Do you have a case from Society6? If you do then let me know i'd love to know what you think of them and which one you have!
When baking cakes I always make the cake mix and then slightly regret baking it because it tasted soooo good before I cooked it. I was so excited when I found this recipe on pinterest to make cookie dough into frosting & it's really super easy! The lovely Stef from Cupcake Project gives a simple recipe to start you off here & I'm going to share the exact ingredients I used for mine.
The Cupcakes - mine made 8
| | 2 Eggs - 160g | |
(TIP: weight the eggs, whatever they come to is what you need everything else to weigh)
| | Butter - 160g | |
| | Self raising flour - 160g | |
| | Caster sugar - 160g | |
Mix together the butter & caster sugar 'til it becomes a whiter butter colour. Then beat in the 2 eggs and then start using a whisk (add a little flour if it looks like it may curdle!) Sift in the flour and mix it all together. Fill half of the cupcake papers & bake at 200c for about 20mins, checking regularly!
The Amazing Frosting
(mine just about covered the 8 but i'd recommend using a little more of each ingredient as i only had this much butter left!)
| | Butter - 100g | |
| | Caster sugar - 100g | |
| | Plain flour - 100g | |
| | a dash of milk | |
Just mix it all together in this order: butter, sugar, flour, milk! Then decorate the cakes with it using any method you like.
Take a look at Martha Stuart's tips on Piping, I wish I was this good!
Welcome to my first post in a series i'm doing about organising your virtual world.
Tidying up is sometimes a task I find easily gets overlooked especially if it's not staring you in the face like a pile of dirty dishes and in this series of tasks I plan to find helpful tips on doing your virtual dishes. This means looking at how we organise folders on our desktop, apps on our phones, our various blogs, websites and social networking accounts and even our daily inspiration.
A little while ago I started properly using my Pinterest account. It's a fantastic way of organising so many things;
Images that inspire you,
products that you find online,
photos that help you redesign a room, colour schemes,
links to blog posts to read later
& so much more
The great thing about it is you can add a little bookmarklet to your browser that allows you to 'Pin' anything you like wherever you are on the web. For example, if you find this post inspiring or you wanted to read it again later you could click on the bookmark to save it.
My favourite thing about Pinterest and what sets it apart from other image bookmarking sites is it's the way it allows you to separate things into folders - you can even create a new folder (or 'Board' I should be saying) when you're in the middle of bookmarking a new pin.
So my challenge to you is to set up your own Pinterest account and set up a few boards that will be helpful for you & whenever you see something you want to see again you'll know where to categorise it!
I recently used my Pinterest to create a board specifically for inspiration for an illustration project i'm working on. It allows me to refer back to my inspiration really easily but means i don't have to clog up any hard drive space in the mean time.
With the days getting progressively colder we may be getting a little depressed about leaving behind the summer months. Don't dwell on what's in the past, look to the future and you'll find reasons to love winter again!
