Five For Friday

Everybody knows that Friday is really just a day for surfing the web, and killing time until the bell rings and the weekend begins. Here are my five fabulous things to brighten up your day.


Nigellas Marmite Spaghetti
I love Nigella and not just for her glossy hair and lovely boobies. Her recipes are pretty hot too. They always work and are never over complicated. This week I'm drooling over her recipe for Marmite Spaghetti. I know what I will be cooking over the weekend

Snow White Decals for the Mac
These decals are all over etsy at the moment and I must say I'm sorely tempted to get this Snow White one for my Macbook. 
I think I have to have this

Dita Von Tease by Douglas Friedman for Instyle 
I found these photos of Dita whilst looking at www.ananasamiami.com they were for last February's Instyle magazine. Just dreamy and perfect photo fodder to waste some time on.
Dita looking just beautiful


This is what I look like baking-honest

Sea Odyssey Giant Spectacular Liverpool 20-22 April 
A few years ago I was lucky enough to see the Giant Spider puppet created by marionette experts Royal De Luxe.On a wet afternoon I watched in awe as the brilliant machine like puppet crashed through the streets, it was both exciting and surreal all at the same time.




So its very exciting to hear that RDL will be back in Liverpool in April.

This time a 30ft Little Girl Giant will take to the streets in a giant spectacular show produced specifically for Liverpool. Its set to be 2012's largest UK street event and will commemorate the centenary of the 1912 Titanic disaster. Sounds like a great afternoon to me. For more details go to www.giantspectacular.com/



Kiss And Bake Up Tee Shirt
You may remember I profiled Nick Bees art work a few weeks ago. His latest design is a fabulous tee shirt for those creative bakers at Kiss and Bake up. Modelled by the very lovely Missy Malone.Eating cake has never looked better. 
Kiss and Bake Ups great new tee shirt
So that's my five for Friday. Whatever your plans this weekend have  a good one.

  3. I've had that Marmite spaghetti before it is lush! Don't have it too late at night though as Marmite is high in B vitamins which can affect your sleep... x

  5. HA! What a coincidence, I look exactly like Dita in that picture when I cook too! Stilettos and all! ;) Saw those photos when they appeared in In Style Magazine. Considering how much time she spends in Paris, you'd think she needs someone to take care of that LA pad of hears while she's away. I wouldn't mind being that caretaker... ;) xo
