Monday Motivation | Wise Words

If, like me, that ominous Sunday night feeling has started creeping over you then hopefully this quote will help to lift your spirits for tomorrow and will help you to have a happier week next week!


I'm a big believer in maintaining a positive outlook on life but every now and then I definitely need reminding to think positivity and keep my chin up. On those days I look to my trusty Wise Words Pinterest board where I post all sorts of inspirational quotes, sayings and messages from things to help me get through really hard times to funny little rhymes to inspire me to get my butt to the gym! Check out my board here next time you need a pick-me-up and feel free to pinch a pin or two - it really does help!

Cheesecake Cupcakes for Valentine's Day! | Recipe


Yayyy! I am SO excited to share this recipe with you because I think it's bloody brilliant if I say so myself. These are my cheesecake cupcakes. Yes that's right, CHEESECAKE cupcakes. That's delicious vanilla cupcakes with a buttery biscuit base and cream cheese buttercream frosting. Cupcakes + cheesecakes = what's not to love?



As an added bonus I've made mine pretty and pink for Valentine's Day but if you're avoiding V-Day do feel free to skip the red dye and sprinkles. Right, let's get started! -->>

Valentine's Day E-Vouchers! | MBJ

Great news! - I've added some new goodies to the Made by Jade website in time for Valentine's Day! I now have E-Vouchers here so that you can treat someone special to a Made by Jade shopping spree so they can select their very own goodies in their own time. They come in different denominations so that you can mix and match to get your perfect amount. Just add them to your basket and, after you've completed the checkout, I'll email you a proof of purchase email voucher to send on to your loved one (or save for a rainy day!).

I looove getting gift vouchers as gifts because they mean that you have to spend the money on something fun for yourself whereas if I get money it will undoubtedly go on something sensible and boring like bills! I have actually seriously considered buying them for myself and putting them aside for a time when I might be a bit skint so that I can treat myself without dipping into my bank account.  It'd be a nice pick-me-up when I'm strapped for cash like when you find a tenner hiding in a pocket in your bag - score! 

Have a browse here on Made by Jade at all of our beautiful goodies, handmade by yours truly! From luxury leather bracelets and dog collars inspired by Chanel handbags to fun design-your-own phone cases and faux fur bag charms, there something for every fashion-lover on the site!

Valentine's Day Pink Heart Macaroons | YouTube Video

I've been spending the morning procrastinating and watching Baking Made Easy with my new favourite chef, Lorraine Pascale, and it reminded me that I wanted to post this baking video here on my blog for you. These easy, pink, heart-shaped macaroons I made are the perfect thoughtful and tasty Valentine's Day treat!



 Mine are filled with Nutella but you can fill yours with whichever tasty surprise you want, jam, cream, white chocolate spread, peanut butter... whatever takes your fancy! I even show you where to get some pretty presentation boxes so that they look extra special when you give them to your Valentine. Watch on to see how they're made and remember to watch in HD for the best quality and perhaps thumbs up the video and subscribe for free to my channel here if you want to see more videos like this!

Barcelona Beauty & Fashion Haul! | YouTube Video

Hello! Following on from yesterday's post showing what I got up to on my holiday in Barcelona, here is a haul video showing you everything I bought on that fateful day when I was left alone in the Diagonal Mar shopping mall. I also picked up a few things in the airport. I love duty free shopping, a) because it's usually cheaper but also because b) when I used to go the airport as a little girl I would admire all of the glamorous, wealthy women shopping the designer goodies and looking painfully chic in their immaculate clothes and beautiful designer bags with perfectly coifed hair, expensive perfume wafting as they swanned by before they boarded a flight to somewhere exotic and exciting.



So now that I am older and (sometimes) have money of my own to spend it feels kind of cool to be able to join them and treat myself to a little something. Watch on to see what I got and, if you like my video, please remember to take a second to give it a thumbs up and perhaps even subscribe to my channel here so you never miss a video!

Bonita Barcelona! | Travel

Sooo... I decided that before I wack up a load of holiday snaps from Mexico I should probably post the ones from Barcelona which I have been sitting on for oh, only about five months now!!! Jeez, I had no idea that it had been that long. Anyway, I finally pulled my finger out so here you go - a little lookey-loo at what I got up to in the sunny Spanish city (lots more pictures after the jump!).
