Valentines Baking | Blueberry Macarons

Happy Valentines day! 
If you follow my Instagram you'll have seen a piccy of mine and Craig's lovely macarons the other day! I thought I'd save this recipe for today so that if you have forgotten to buy your Valentine a present you can make some, or if you want to make a big batch and eat them all at once whilst watching chick flicks you can do that too!
I followed this recipe which  is the most straightforward one I could find but added blueberry to the butter icing and purple food colouring to make the look pretty!
I'll re-write the instructions under the pictures for you so you know what's going on step by step. Enjoy!

Valentines Nails

It's Valentines day tomorrow and I don't think I know many people who actually love Valentines day (apart from my friend Dani who once gave out little Thorntons chocolate hearts to everyone in our seminar at uni!) A lot of people dread it because they haven't got a 'date' and a lot of couples don't enjoy the whole mushy teddy bears and lovey dovey cards thing so I've found it's usually not a day many people look forward to. Although in recent years I've found myself liking it not because of my boyfriend (sorry Craig) but because of everything that surrounds it. Valentines Fashion, Valentines Make-up, Valentines Food and Alcohol, Valentines Television! All the things I like right there so what's not to look forward to! So who cares if you've got someone to spend it with or not, Enjoy all that the commercialisation of Valentines day has to offer! And if you really hate it then don't worry, Easter is soon and you can stuff your face with chocolate.

I thought I'd contribute to the Valentines nail art I've seen taking over Instagram and show you mine! I love this shade of pink by Essie called Cute as a Button. This was super easy to do as well because the nail polish brush is rounded at the end, so I did a diagonal left sweep and a diagonal right sweep and it was done! This look may be improved if my nails were more pointy or even rounder but hey ho what you do. I used Soap and Glory Pink Soda for the base (Which I got in this set that is now out of stock but you can use any pinky base) and sealed it with Sally Hansen Insta-dry Topcoat.

If you've created any Valentines themed nail art do link me to it here or on twitter (georgiabeeee) or Instagram (xgeorgia) I'd love to see it!

What's your fave or least fave thing about Valentines day?
What are you getting up to tomorrow?

January Favourites

(Better late than never!) Once Christmas is over, winter also should be over in my opinion, weather please take note. I hate that feeling of a long stretch of coldness ahead of you and in England who knows when it will end?! So appreciating the little things that we enjoy through the most depressing month of the year can help! Here are the things I have been loving over January, enjoy!
