Bettys Five For Friday

Welcome to my first "Five For Friday" blog post. Once a week I will do a round up of whats been catching my eye, making my heart beat faster and my purse feel lighter. 

A Zombie Ate My Cupcake Kit
Just in time for Halloween A Zombie ate my cupcake promises to help you make some "killer" cupcakes.

The kit includes a book of 25 recipes, a tombstone cookie cutter, a horn mould and two sculpting tools. 

Author Lily Vanilli shows you how to work with natural ingredients and cake-decorating tools to create amazing edible decorations - from chocolate devil's horns to a cupcake graveyard with gingerbread tombstones. 
eyeball cupcake anyone?
Why not give guests a shock with the revoltingly realistic Marzipan Beetles, or add a crunch to your desserts with the Morbid Meringue Bones, dipped in raspberry blood sauce? I think this looks wonderful. Definitely considering getting it for my Halloween party.

The Dita Von Teese Muse Collection.

This week saw the announcement that  Dita Von Teese will be designing a dress collection for Australian store David Jones. Called "Muse" 
Simply stunning
The launch capsule collection features five fabulous pieces, including vintage-inspired dresses and a tulle-layered trench coat. 
Each dress includes couture detailing and grosgrain ribbon that cinches the waist to create a svelte feminine silhouette for which Dita is so renowned.It all looks fabulous and even comes in sizes 8 to 20. The only sad news is that its only available in Australia. Should we start an on-line petition?

#3 Bright pink skull print cosmetic purse by Floozie Frost French 

Love this purse
As its almost Halloween I can indulge my inner goth and this super cute purse by Frost French is a steal at eight quid available at Debenhams.

Paloma Faith For La Senza
The fabulous Ms faith

In the second peice of fabulous celebrity design news this week Paloma Faith has designed some beautiful 1940's inspired underwear for La Senza.

Money from sales of this rather lovely lingerie goes to breast cancer care. Who knew being charitable could look so good.

Kirstie's Handmade Britain
Its so good to have Kirstie Allsops craft show back on our telly box. 
Queen of crafts
Wednesday nights are now officially "Kirsty Night" at Betty Towers. Bringing crafts to prime time TV. You go girl.
Hope you have a fabulous Friday.
