Lemon Cupcakes and Kitchen Destruction

Hi guys!

Today has been a pretty good day. Not only has it consisted of fab company and lots of food, but also a whole bunch of laughs (the best cure for anxiety in my opinion). I invited one of my best friends Evie over and we planned to make ourselves pizza for lunch and some sort of sweet treat for after. Truth be told, I was so hungry I didn’t manage to get a photo of the home-made pizza (*cough GREEDY cough*) so you’ll just have to trust me when I say it was delicious! I chose to finish mine with the classic margarita topping- and yes, I was always that boring kid who refused to try exotic pizza flavours over my traditional and safe tomato and cheese topping- whereas Evie was a little more adventurous; adorning hers with sweetcorn and mushroom slices.
I got this adorable apron from by Nan as a Christmas present, the style may be a little 'young' but  I still think it's sweet.
It even has little roses on the side!

As soon as we’d wolfed down our pizzas (I just realised how gross the word “wolfed” sounds, kind of makes me feel a bit uncomfortable…) we took a 10 minute break before delving into the experience that was baking our luscious lemon cupcakes.






Since doing my exams, I’ve sort of fallen out of love with everything I had once had a passion for. Baking became a chore, as did writing and reading and going out became almost impossible. Now my exams are over, I often find myself lacking motivation to do anything; which sounds terrible but I think it’s a natural response to being incredibly over-worked and stressed (at least I hope so… I don’t want to feel this way forever!).  However, todays baking escapades have begun to re-light my cooking-flame which, to be honest, I am quite thankful for.

There's nothing better than a cup of green tea after a long day!

 After Evie had left, I realised just how huge the cutlery mountains were and got to washing up straight away. I am being 100% honest when I tell you it took me about an hour to finish cleaning everything. I am now exhausted. I hope you guys like these longer posts… Let me know and be sure to follow me on BlogLovin or via Google if you enjoy reading.
How was your day?

  3. Doing the dishes afar baking is always the worst, but the lemon cupcakes surely look like they were worth it! Glad you're starting to feel a little bit better, but I'm pretty sure the not wanting to do anything feeling is just a phase, it's how I felt once I completed uni this year.
