Cake! Cake! Glorious Cake!

oh no, don’t tell me it’s another wedding related post.

to be fair, cakes are delicious and amazing – SO – i hope you don’t mind that this post kind of has to do with the wedding. because the thought of the cakes makes me very excited. if everything goes according to plan there will be more than one cake. but not fancy tiered wedding cakes, just a few normal sized yet wonderfully tasty cakes to suit everyone’s taste. and by everyone i mean the two of us because we simply can’t choose.

second hand songs

i was compiling my favourite cover songs and thought it would be a pretty great playlist to share. the list was so long that i had to cut it down, and as expected it boiled down to mostly indie / alternative artists. that’s not to say that more well known cover songs aren’t amazing – sinead o’connor’s version of nothing compares to you is arguably more well known than prince’s, but i wanted to share renditions that hopefully you haven’t heard before… enjoy :)

dee-baby-bday

i was born 26 years ago today (eep). my family has a tradition that when one of the kids has their first birthday, they get their own cake & have carte blanche with it. mine was vanilla with pink icing, a sign of things to come –  vanilla is still my favourite.
