Biba Phone Case

Hello everyone!

I'm going to start today's post by saying I'm sorry that I haven't been posting as regularly, but until May third year uni is taking over, but I'll try to post as much as poss!

Sooo, I designed my own iPhone case! I have the old iPhone 4 and it's so hard to find pretty cases for them nowadays.

This is a photo I took of a Biba drawing from the Biba and Beyond exhibition in Brighton earlier this year. I've had it as the background for my iPhone for ages so I thought it was time it took centre stage.

I went onto Vista Print where you can customise so much stuff! Some friends have used it for business cards with great results so I thought I'd try it out.

I'm really pleased with the results. It only cost £15 including delivery and because my photo is of a drawing it's slightly mottled close up, but I think if you had a regular photo (not shot through glass!), it would be even better!

What do you think!?

Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats!

Today I took some time out from hectic third year work (ahhhh!) to make some yummy chocolate rice Krispie treats!!

How to make them: 
-100g chocolate 
-60g butter
-3 tablespoons of golden syrup
-rice Krispies 

1. Melt the chocolate and butter together until the mixture is a glossy, smooth texture. 
2. Add in the golden syrup.
3. Pour in the rice Krispies and stir until they are all coated in the choccy mixture. Keep adding the cereal until you think that no more could be covered by the mixture. 
4. Place in the fridge until stuck together. 

Then YUM! 

A simple recipe, but something to cheer you up if you're going through third year uni hell! 

What have you been up to today? Cooked up anything yummy?

Vintage Mischief

Yesterday the boyf and I did a bit of antiques shopping! I went to my current favourite vintage store that has furniture, clothes and collectables in Beccles, Suffolk. It's called Vintage Mischief and is tucked away behind the town centre and truly is a treasure trove of gorgeous items!

As soon as we came in I saw this amazing white dressing table through a doorway and literally galloped over to it.

It's a Louis style dressing table from the 1960's with intact three piece mirror and stool! It also had matching bedroom furniture set, such as bedside tables, chest of drawers, ottoman and headboards. Unfortunately, being a student I couldn't afford to buy the whole set (I really wish I could! They are so beautiful!), but I did also buy the full length mirror. 

Ahhhhh I love it!!!! I'll take photo's once I've got them home. :)
