Happy 50th Mum! Making The Cake!

So yesterday I had planned to make a chocolate cake for my mums birthday - which is today! Originally I wanted to make a Brownie cake using a recipe I found online, but towards the end of the day I realized I didn't have enough money to buy the ingredients. I knew I was making the cake at Rose's so that my mum wouldn't detect no smell. Thankfully Rose's mum pulled through and said she had a brownie mix that I could use - HURRAH! So with that we started cooking!
The first stage was so melt some chocolate and butter and then add in eggs, the mix and some cream - we didn't have cream so we used soya milk, ooh healthy!! 
We then put the mixture in a cake tin, we had to separate the tin so that the cake wouldn't be too thin, just smaller and thicker!! 
And then we waited! All together I think it took around 40-50 minutes to cook! We were quite impatient waiting for it to cook!
But finally it was ready and here's what it looked like!
We took it out the tin and added chocolate sauce and chocolate sprinkles. When we were putting the cake in a container for me to take home we realized it was a bit too big, so helped ourselves to a slice each - just to check if it was any good ;)
For your information = IT WAS GOOD!!! 
With the cake made I stayed at Rose's for a while so I could sneak the cake back into the house without my mum seeing it till morning. But yay! I was so happy I made it :) And it's a super healthy cake which is brill!

Urban Outfitters Window Shopping

Shit son I need to hurry up and write this post before midnight - hate writing two posts in one day... 
Anyways!! Today I went into town with Rose around 1pm because it was Rose's payday so she wanted to go shopping. I on the other hand was pennyless so I just came along to try on clothes and weep to myself. We went Topshop first and Rose bought 3 items. Most high street stores are having 20-50% sales it was good to make the most of it while the good clothes are around. Rose ended up buying a fringe bralet, a fringe embroidery jumper and a cotton laced skirt. All discounted! 
We then went to Urban Outfitters and I actually tried on some of the items I liked the most. Pinafores and Dungarees have actually crept back into style (which I am very happy about, but I can't find the dungarees I bought a few years ago and I have a feeling I gave them to Charity :c) The first outfit I tried on was a simple ox blood crop tee and over that a polka dot pinafore. 

Second outfit I liked much more. I paired a simple patterned playsuit with a ivory cardigan. The cardigan was amazingly soft and I want it so badly! Rose bought the dress below!
Playsuit, I can't actually find on the UO website, so I'm not sure if it was the last of last seasons, or is the new season and not yet posted on the website, either way I love it and want it!
Dress, was on sale so isn't on the website anymore! 

Third outfit I tried on was probably my favourite because the style was more down my street. I just paired a graphic tee with some high waisted Levi shorts, which actually turned out to be way too big because I got size small and my waist is way too small compared to my hips. 
Shorts, were in the Urban Renewal section, which is unique to each shop. I'm pretty sure the shorts were Levi's though! 
Gee I just love the outfit though, the tee tucked in looked so good :B 

Haha I'm lame with fashion guys don't judge me, I just wanted to post the outfits I tried on it UO because its what I liked in the shop and yeah! The rest of the day I spent with Rose, we went to some lush Coffee shop which was so rustic and had amazing style and layout! My camera had died by this point so no photos were taken :c I'll defo go back though and take some photos, maybe just dedicate a post on the place it was that lovely!! After the panini in the cafe we went back to Rose's and just hanged until late, I only got back a few minutes ago to be honest and have been trying to make this post before midnight!! Rose has gone to the pub for a bit I think with the girlies, but I am so tired haha I just want to sleep. I had an induction thing for volunteering at a charity shop today!! I'm glad I'm doing it because it'll be something to fill my week in. I'm starting next Wednesday 10 - 2pm so it should be interesting! Also tomorrow is my mommy's birthday so I wanna be awake nice and early :3 I'll do a post for sure tomorrow!
Till then

Jess' 18th Birthday

Ah! Yesterday was actually a lot of fun! After doing my camping post I got ready, found something to wear and then headed over Rose's around 4pm. At her's we did our make up and hair, but still only left around 5.45pm! I feel like it was later but Rose took forever per usual!! Hehe. We took some fun snaps in her garden and in her room.
Look tall I am (hehe with heels) ;)
My ear is so socially awkward
We then headed on our way to Jess' house. At hers we had some pre-drinks and some pizza and then around 9pm headed into town!
Pulling faces when drunk is so appealing
We got a lift into town (yay) and went to Gatekeeper for some more drinks. James arrived a bit after us and then Ara came by but then headed off to Revs. Liam arrived towards the end and then we all headed off to Revs.
Some weird drunk man that was talking to us...
We queued up at Revs around midnight and some guy in an ice cream van was handing out free ice cream which was cool but a bit weird... So I had one, but then Rose wasn't allowed into Revs because her passport is out of date. So we said good bye to everyone because I wasn't up for staying if she wasn't. We then waiting for Alex to pick us up and then he gave me a lift home! At home I had some pork and gravy in a bowl it was yummy. Then I fell asleep with my cat on my bed, it was cute!

I'm not sure what I'm doing today, the weathers meant to be so nice for quite a while now and it makes me feel like I need to make the most of every single day! I'm sure I will hopefully, I really feel like making smoothies and lying in the grass today... Anyways I need to shower and get ready.
I'll post soon!
