Bakerdays Letterbox Cake Review

Bakerdays are an online company that specialise in personalised cakes, perfect for any occasion. I was very kindly gifted with the letterbox cake which is a 5 inch cake that will cut into 3-4 decent sized portions. It's named the baby of their cakes as their larger cakes have around 50-60 portions. It does exactly what it says on the tin too and gets delivered straight through your letterbox, so no need to worry if its a gift or you won't be in on the day you're told it's being delivered! 

You can choose from their choice of designs or create your own. I opted for the Keep Calm and Party On cake - It's pink, what more can I say. They have an incredible selection of designs and with the design your own feature you could have absolutely anything you wanted. This little beauty arrived on my doorstep within a couple of days and I was eager to tuck in a have a slice. It came very well packaged and all in one piece. You also receive a little card and balloons which I think is such a lovely touch. The letterbox cake is priced at £14.99 and I think it's a lovely thoughtful gift for anyone. The cake is also super yummy- I opted for sponge but they also do chocolate, fruit and gluten free. 

Overall I think Bakerdays have such a brilliant service, its a unique idea and I will definitely be making future purchases for loved ones on special occasions.

Packing the case!

Seeing as though I'm off on holiday soon I thought it would be a nice idea to give you all a little sneak peak into some of my holiday bits and bobs that I've packed. I probably won't be doing outfit posts whilst I'm away- I'm off on a girly holiday to Zante so i'll just be throwing beachwear on in the day and then I guess 'clubbing' outfits in the evening. I might share a few snaps of the actual holiday though afterwards, it just depends If I get any pictures which aren't of me drunk and pulling stupid faces...

I've got quite a few pairs of shorts, cami's and crop tops for the evenings and a dress- I have an outfit planned for every night and I even have a few back ups! I've also got some vouchers too so no doubt before I leave I'll pick up even more bits (I prefer to have too much that not enough). I still need to figure out what I'm traveling in, I'm thinking of wearing either a maxi dress or a cami top with pants and sandals. I love these trousers from Box Clothing - I think they'd look gorgeous with a black cami and black sandals, so I think I'll go after something along those lines, comfortable yet stylish!

For accessories I think I'll just end up packing a couple of statement necklaces to finish off the outfits for the evening and a couple of clutches. I also have 3 pairs of sandals and my white converse for footwear- and flip flops for the beach of course! 

Are you off on holiday anywhere nice this summer?
