NYC Fashion Ave Fuchsia - Plus Cakes!

I popped into Superdrug the other day just to pick up some essentials, and couldn't resist having a look at the NYC stand. I can't believe how decently priced all of their products are! I picked up 3 new nail polishes as they were only £1.79 each, and because I spent over £5 I got some false eye lashes for free. Great deal, right?

On the shelf this one looked like a bottle of red wine, it had a really autumnly feel. (Is autumnly a word??) Anyway, summer here in the UK is almost officially over so I need to stock up on some more colours :)

This is NYC Fashion Ave Fuchsia and it's a lovely colour. I'd say it's more pink than it looks in the bottle but it's a really bright colour and was so easy to use. These 'In a minute' NYC polishes have quite wide brushes and they really do dry fast, so they're great if you don't have much time to do your nails before going out or something.

I added a little Converse trainer to my ring finger, an idea I got from the hours of reading through tons of nail art blogs, which didn't turn out too badly. It's so hard to draw on your own nails! I guess it's something I'll get used to eventually but my lines are really wobbly at the moment. If you've got any tips or tricks, I'd love to hear them!

Also, if you were interested, I did bake those cakes! Me and the boyfriend had a great time baking them, and even more fun eating them!

Here's the end result! Doesn't really look much like the picture from the cookbook, but we don't have an electric whisk yet, and it REALLY didn't help when I mis-read the ingredients and added far too much butter to the sponge mix - whoops!

The recipe asked for cola syrup which I don't have so we used real cola instead, which probably helped to lighten up the batter after all that butter I accidently added.

They're really tasty though, must be around 900 calories a piece but they sure are worth it!

I'm going away for a couple of days for a work event tomorrow and won't be back till Thursday night, so sorry you won't hear from me till later this week.

Bye for now! :)
