Bakerdays - Postbox Cake *

Baker Days kindly sent me my own personalised La Belle Aventure letterbox cake. I had previously heard of Baker Days from another blog and was excited to be presented with my own cake.

Who are Baker Days?

Baker Days is a relatively new online service for creating personalised cakes for all occasions, throughout the UK; based in Nottingham and founded by Andrea Guzyova and Alan Hawkes.

They create a range of  design cakes with names, messages or images of our own choice and can upload it on  their unique letterbox cake, celebration cakes, photo designed cakes or cupcakes.

Cakes can either be the usual vanilla sponge cakes but they offer other alternatives for an extra fee such as Carrot cake, Fruit cake, Double Chocolate chip, Gluten and Wheat Free cakes.

All Bakerdays cakes are handmade with good quality ingredients and contain no preservatives.

They can deliver fresh cakes, the next working day if ordered before 2pm and every cake is presented with candles, mini card and balloons.

Not knowing what design I wanted, I sent Baker Days a selection of images associated with the blog. When their in-house designer created it, they sent me a preview to see if I liked the design. I was so glad with the final creation because it was an exact replica of our blog image.

However, if you do not want to upload your own design via their easy to use website then they have over 400  design templates to choose from which can suit your needs.

They arranged to send me the cake on a date I specified, due to moving out of my uni accommodation. So when I finished moving back home on Saturday, I found the cake sitting by the letterbox.

The presentation of the actual cake was amazing. The cake comes in a cute little round gift tin embossed with 'Just For You' which gives it a really personal touch, a mini floral card to write a message and a mini packet of love hearts.

When I opened the tin, the cake was packaged in plastic with instructions of how to safely remove it from the tin.

 Once I removed the plastic wrapper, I was surprised how clear and detailed the design came out! The actual design is printed directly onto the icing and is stretched all around the sides including the cake board.

Although I forgot to mention when ordering what type of cake I wanted, I was luckily presented with a cake that I liked which was 'Carrot Cake'. The carrot cake was nicely flavoured with spices and the texture was very moist, I enjoyed it a lot.
Personally, I think Baker Days has created a perfect sized cake for those celebrations which require only a small cake as a thoughtful gift, whether it be for 'Passing driving test' or  a 'New job'. I would even purchase these cakes for friends who are away at university and unable to celebrate birthdays with everyone as they are only 5 inches in size and provide 3-4 portions.

You can buy a letterbox cake for £14.99 inc. delivery here.

If you are looking for a larger sized cake then you can choose from the other 3 options available at Bakerdays such as:

Small Party cakes 7 inch (8-10 portions)
Medium Party cakes 9 inch (29-30 portions)
 Large Party cake 9.5 inches (45-55 portions)

My 21st Birthday Haul

As I mentioned in my previous Birthday post, I wanted to show you the gifts I received from my 21st last week.

Personally, I am a big fan of haul posts and love to see what people purchase or receive. I have tried to condense what I got,  but I got quite a bit so it will be a picture heavy post. I got most items either exactly or similarly from my Wishlist post.

So without, further ado, this is what I received for my Birthday.

Swarovski Gold Angelic Ring

21 Wine Glass

Jules & James Gold/Silver Watch & Bracelet

Breda Rose Gold Watch

One4all voucher
Pearl Bracelet

Miso Statement Necklace

Mikey London Heart & Key Necklace

Swarovski Crystal Gold Leaf Bracelet

Britney Spears Fantasy EDP

Sugar Flower Tutorial Book

Thortons Classic Chocolate selection

21 Silver Photoframe and Key

House of Dereon Aztec Dress

H&M Blazer

Jane Shilton Cream Tote Bag

Pastel Multicoloured Polka dot Satchel

ZARA Office Bag

Gold Detail Bowler bag

Gold Diamond Nose Stud

Selfridges gift card
I am so unbelievably grateful and shocked at all the gifts I received. I know I won't need to shop for a while now, as I have everything I need so I can save money before I relocate for my upcoming Finance placement in July.

Peace, Love & Besos

Pop Bands *

Want in on the latest No Rip, No Slip Headband or Arm Candy?

Then let me introduced to you, the latest craze Popbands!

What are Popbands?

They are a selection of hair and wrist accessories from Molly Mabel range that are soft, sparkly & stretchy. It was masterminded by two creative shoppaholics  Keli Craig & Lou Booth.

The unique selling point about Popbands, is they do not dent your hair or mark your wrists , no matter how tight they are adjusted, leaving you kink-free and dent-free.

I was lucky enough to be sent three collections from the Popband range to review.

Individual Purple jewelled bead wristband

Grey twinpack with a small jewelled bead attached wristband & Plain headband

Individual Plain Pink Wristband

I've been wearing the purple wristband alot because it is one of my favourite colours, it is so comfortable, cute and a subtle piece of arm candy.

They come in an array of colours and prints to match your outfits . Perfect for festivals or everyday. I will definitely be wearing mine to Wireless Festival , as they are not prone to breakage and they have the glitz element.

One thing I love about the Popband range is that some of the proceeds from each sale goes to charities across the world, which is amazing!

The individual collection popbands (Plain, Patterned or jewelled) cost £5 each;  The Twinpack collection which consist of a headband and matching hairband costs £6 , but if you want a Multipack collection consisting of 5 pack coloured popbands this costs £6 .

They also offer free postage on all UK orders.

Check out the Popband website & follow them on : Twitter and Facebook

21st Birthday Overview

Hiiii Belles,

*I'm now officially 21* 
(Picture Heavy Post)

I finally joined the club on Wednesday (8th May). I had a great day,  even though I had to sit a 3 hour Law exam in the morning , as soon as it was over I headed off to Nottingham to celebrate with my sister, who made it amazingly special by decorating her studio apartment with balloons & banners.
I opened all my presents which she had stocked up in her apartment, after that she took me out for a birthday bowling session and I let her win secretly lol .

Then we went out to eat at Turtle Bay Caribbean Restaurant, the next day my mum and brother came to Nottingham to celebrate with us and took me out to Turtle Bay again.

All in all, it was an amazing 2 days celebrating my 21st Birthday with lots of laughter/good times with the family!
