This has been the month of baking. The first bake was a carrot loaf cake with cream cheese frosting which ended up being under baked. Then I started creating hand embroidery designs for my art work which I think are just the most adorable things ever. 
If you read my last post you'll know that I've been loving 'space buns'. I tried wearing them to college this month and just fell in love with how funky I felt and how easy they were to create. Definitely one of my fave hairstyles. 
Autumn kicked in too with my autumnal bedding, hot cross buns, gingerbread hot chocolates, and crackling WoodWick candles. 

I produced one of my best art works this month which I'm really happy with. It's a tonal shading of a 
hand which took about 5/6 hours. 
Around this time I also did another bake of chocolate orange marble loaf cake which went down well. 
On 24th, my boyfriend and I took a trip to the local Rose Gardens. We had a delicious hot lunch with drinks and a halloween themed hunt in the gardens. We then took about two hours to explore the hidden parts of the estate and it was so, so exciting - I had an amazing day. 
I practised doing a decorated drip cake in preparation from my christmas cake, the drips didn't go as perfect as I wanted, but I definitely learned for my final cake. With this I went for a carnival theme with pastel colours (which are a bit more vibrant in this picture). 
I did some nail art on my friend's nails. After not doing nail art in so long, it was nice to re-visit it. We kind of decided on a subtle hint of halloween 'drip' nails with a gorgeous rich pink colour from Essie: 'Big spender'.
My last bake of the month was Cherry Bakewell Tartlets which are a family favourite in my house. They were gone after two days - and I even made a batch of TWELVE. As well as them, I used the left over pastry for some cute little jam tarts, which also lasted just as long as the Bakewell tarts. 

Overall, I had quite a good month and I'm excited to get more baking done next week.
