Hot hot hot!

Yowzers bowzers who turned the heating up?! I can't believe this gorgeous hot summer has been sneakily hiding away behind those clouds this whole time it is LUSHIOUSNESS!

Don't you find the sun makes everything look so much better, people look better towns, parks... everything feels like a mini holiday! 

It really gives me a new lease of life, well to a certain extent that is. 
I draw my curtains in the morning feel motivated by the beautiful weather but then it doesn't take too much sitting in the sun throughout the day for the sun to quite literally suck the life out me! 
Lets face it we brits are quite twirpy we moan about the cold and then sun comes out and suddenly all you hear is "it's too hot" 





I have had quite a productive week with lots of jubilee orders, making CAKE mmm cake and also saw the olympic torch.
Speaking of the olympic torch what do you make of people selling their torches to the highest bidder? Myself I feel a little bit deflated at that, I mean surely it's enough of an honour being picked let alone making money from it I heard that one sold for £150,000!
For me it would be alot more special if it was one torch that goes the whole way not a million different torches. .




Such a beautiful weekend what have you been upto are you going to try and catch a gimpse of the torch or not too fussed?

Jubilee/Olympic Games Special Edition Range

You may have noticed, well let's face it..... would be hard to ignore the fact that as a nation the UK is swamped in red white and blue it is everywhere right now.
I noticed there are a lot of fun hats and plastic alicebands and things like that but I wanted to make a range of really nice keep sake accessories.
The great thing about this range is that they will serve appropriate for two occasions this year with Queen Lizzibert's diamond Jubilee and the up and comming Olympic games.

I offer these designs as hair clips, rings and brooches with a couple of headbands a the bottom.
All designs available at stores.ebay.co.uk/Lilly-Belle-Accessories
Just type in Jubilee in shop search. Would love to hear what you think?

You can't get much cuter than little babies in cute headbands, oh no wait yes you can.....little girls in gorgeous feather headbands.
These headbands are perfect for birthday parties, christening or any other occasion that opts for a bit more glam!






Some more posh tots headbands i've been working on lately are these beautiful brightly coloured flower bands perfect for the summer to match with dresses/outfits.









Get your pinnies out girls it's caking time!

You may have already noticed my love for caking which totally stepped up a gear once my very kind mr man bought me a KMIX for my bday. 
I have been homing in on my cupcake making skills and trying lots of new things and here's how they came out....

What's your favourite cupcake flavour?







And just for a bit of fun some jam tarts for my girlies lunch box hehe. 
Jam tarts are amazingly easy to make this was my first time making them, just search for a recipe and give it a go takes hardly any time or ingredients and makes a yummy treat.



 

New bridal designs hot off the press!

I have been concentrating on a couple of key areas for my accessories recently and here are some designs I have recently been working on for my bridal range.
Pictures do not do these headbands justice they really *sparkle* in real life! 
Let me know what you think :)











General Update On Life And Business

Hi everyone just want to say a massive huge thank you to all my new followers means so much and to everyone else that endures my ramblings every now and again :)
I will be updating my blog today on everything I have been upto recently including new designs, photoshoot collaborations and will break it up into seperate sections so you can choose to read or disguard any posts not of interest to you.

Updates on personal life - My little girl has just started nursery school this last month and as any mum knows this is quite an emotional transition (time to cut the umbilical cord)! She has the best time there and I can safely say that my fridge now looks like all the episodes in the history of art attack has exploded on it, great fun!

Oh and isn't she just a little comedienne!?

I will be doing my first ever stall at a show for a Jubilee party in June so I have been busy preparing for that and planning my table.
Would never have realised how much thought has to go into doing one of these but will be interesting to see how it goes as i've always wanted to hit the wedding fayres in the not too distant future. 

If anyone has ever done a stall or has any good tips please let me know :)
