Secondly, Blueberry Smoothie. Smoothies are another favourite thing to make. My husband brought me lots of fruit yesterday to help me get my vitamins in. I love smoothies, especially ones with bananas in it. You can find this smoothie recipe here: Creamy Blueberry Smoothie.

Thirdly, Queen Bee Cake Stand. I love my new cake stand. How sweet is it? It even has a Queen bee in the middle of the plate and a huge glass dome. Last week House Of Fraser asked me if I would like to pick something from their Kitchen Accessories range to review. It just so happens I was in the middle of decorating my kitchen and I was on the lookout for a nice new cake stand. Perfect timing! I adore cake stands and wish I had more room to collect them.
