Blog Change and reason ive been away.

Just a quick post to say....
Sorry ive been away so long i dont really buy much beauty related items anymore and just lost the drive to blog.
on boxing day my nana passed away she was my whole world and its strange not having her around, not being able to give her a hug and a good old chin-wag. its alot to get used to when my free time was usually seeing her.
she was taking in hospital on my birthday so it hit me really hard.
but im back but im changing instead of just beauty related post i will be talking about anything. im thinking of a name and starting a brand new blog i will alert those of you that actually read my blog in a few days.


See you soon.

So all my friends at work were begging me to make peanut butter cakes for them, so of course i had to make them.

I've never made them before and the only peanut butter ive ever tried is from resse's pieces (Yum) so i was so worried then wouldn't taste nice. i think i searched for hours on end to find a perfect recipe for me to use but they all came up with so many different ones that i just took the basics and put them into one. i scooped my batter out in the cases put them in the over for 15mins and listened to my jamie oliver egg timer app click away. i started to think what on earth shall i use as frosting, so i looked through the cupboards and couldn't find anything, i decided to see what they had at the shop and low and behold Nutella. easiest thing that wouldn't take too much attention away from the peanut butteryness. jamie oliver rang and i poped the cakes out the oven, they smelt amazing and had risen well.

after i let them cool i put the nutella on and itched to try one.

They were a little bit dry but i expected that because they do tend to be dry. the nutella soon took the dry taste away and it just tasted like peanut buttery heaven really. im glad i chose nutella cause it made the cake taste about 10x better than what it would of been plain, which was what i was going to go with.

So there you go you need to try these if your a peanut butter fan. Yum

in the kitchen with sarah day 1

So the past couple of months or so ive been baking cakes,cakes and more cakes so im going to do a few post of the cupcakes ive made.
I've always loved baking cakes but after i left school i just stopped baking. i was looking into it to do at college but chose graphic design instead, that was a big fail.
when the guys at 1000 heads invited me to the Aussie market night in leeds me and my sister jen thought of doing a cupcake stall so we got our bakers heads on and not stopped since. Trying to perfect my frosting has been the hardest and i still dont think im there, i love my sponge, if i do say so myself.
Okay so today i made Cupcake surprise, my best decorated cupcakes so far :D






Pictures were taken from my fab app instagram it puts an affect on the pictures you take and you can post them on twitter facebook flickr etc. the only problem is that the pictures you take dont get saved to your album on the phone only saves on this app. 

so anyway im going to make these at the christmas markets so if any of you are going please stop by and try one :D

Aussie post

Because i have 3 things i want to post about Aussie i thought i might put it all in one.

Okay so the first thing i want to tell you about is the
Aussome volume tribe party
okay maybe it was back in july and im a bit late but hey save the best till last....??

So me and my sister got an invite from the wonderful Emma asking if we wanted to go to the Aussome volume party and it was 60's theme so of course we had to go, Aussie do the best events. it was in my beautiful yet rainy home town of Manchester, in the northern quarter in Bluu bar. When we arrived we were treated with champagne and lots of it.
The whole night was based on Massive 60's hair. I Love huge hair, it was hairspray and backcombing galore.
 Zara and Amber where there with their hairdryers, combs, hairspray and paddle brushes at the ready to treat us all with a Aussome hairstyle. Everybodys hairs look fab and voluminous. "Bee hive for me please, the bigger the better" and so i got my wish with a few added curls. After i had my hair done i wrote my rather drunken hair tip for the style bible which i will show you on the next part.

A few Cocktails and karaoke songs later me and my sister had to go to catch the last train home and leave the rest of thr angels having fun, considering we are the ones that live in Manchester we are the first ones to go  :( but we had a fantastic night that will never be forgotten.
As we said goodbye Emma gave us a goodie bag that had some marvellous products in not to mention the yummy lollipop we munched on the walk to the train station.




i also got a headband and a maxfactor liquid eyeliner that i haven't put down since i put it on everyday and it stays put i love it best eyeliner i have ever used (review coming soon).

The Style Bible
this past of the post is about the style bible aussie very graciously put together for us.
at each tribe parties every angel and guest had to write a down a hair tip to share with everyone. 
and boy did it help alot. 

This was my tip. I don't think this makes sense.
i know what it means because i wrote it.
What i mean is my hair is so thick it gets greasy easily. i decided to stop conditioning my hair every time i was it and i didn't wash it everyday because it makes my hair dry. I started off conditioning once a week then once a fortnight then i didn't condition i just used Aussie 3 minute miracle once a fortnight my hair wasn't as greasy as often it took a few months for my hair to get used to it and eventually my hair did start to look healthier and alot stronger which that wasn't my point of doing it but its a massive bonus. 
I've recently dyed my hair i wouldn't say dye i would say put every stripping product on my hair just to get the red out so i can go blonde. it didn't work as much as i hoped its got blonde highlights but the rest is just ginger well i wouldn't even say ginger its ORANGE. so anyway i'm in the process of repairing my hair so i can get it bleached and my hair wont fall out. i haven't got really damaged hair it just needs a but of TLC so i have to condition and treat my hair more often. so yea my point is ........i don't really have a point actually just a statement. my hair is a mess right now so this bible is helping me alot. 
Thanks angels xox

Where I've been

Instead of me explaining where i've been for the past million months i will show you i've been working like crazy and fitting everything in between shifts and my blog just got pushed to the side for a while but don't worry i haven't forgotten about it.

I'm off sick today cause i have that bug that's making its way around :( so i thought instead of lying in bed feeling sorry for myself i will do some post :D

so here is where i've been for the past few months
                                                
                                (Went to see fake that at the Village in hyde for my mums birthday)
                                         (The Aussie Aussome Volume tribe 60's themed event)

                          (Meteor shower watching we sat out in the cold for 3 hours and saw 1)

                               (Drinking pink in my mums friends garden having a chin-wag)

                         (I went on my second holiday of the year to majorca with the family)


                                                        
                                                             (Friends 19th in town)
                  (I met Ronald Mcdonald at work -see there are some perks you get to meet a creepy clown)
                                                        (Played hide-n-seek with Ronald)

                                      (Tried to be a not so convincing Hippie at a works party)
             (Said goodbye to a friend -believe it or not i didn't touch a drop of alcohol that night)

(Went to Alton Towers for the millionth time had the best time ever)





(Become an Official Aussie Angel)
I'm having trouble putting it on my side bar atm it keeps disappearing :( 



And also I'm attempting to change the colour of my hair i'm going blonde i love the colour but all the red that's in my hair its driving my mad but i will not give up then i'm getting hair extensions because my hair is far too short.

I got an Iphone4 aswell i love it best phone i have ever had so glad i didnt get the 3gs.
