Recipe: Chocolate Orange Cupcakes with Chocolate Orange Fudge Icing

If you hadn't already seen plastered all over my social media, it was recently my best friend Charlotte's birthday so what better way to celebrate than with her favourite thing - chocolate orange! I really enjoy baking (although it's not so much fun when 1. I'm doing it on my own and 2. I'm on a diet), and wanted to give something new a go. My Chocolate Orange Shortbread recipe went down really well and a couple of people even tried it themselves which makes me super proud and that squirmy type of happy so hopefully everyone likes this recipe just as much!

Obviously I'm biased about all my baking, or maybe just sweet things in general, but these Chocolate Orange Cupcakes were amazing so I wanted to share the recipe with you all after having quite a few requests on Twitter! They're really easy to make, literally anyone could do it.

Dirty Great Love Story Review

Deep in the heart of Theatreland, beyond the headline shows, there are smaller, less well known theatres, with shows that are so underrated and often overlooked by people like me, who are probably a bit naive of places like that. 

I've been to the West End so many times to watch shows that are famous all over the world, and draw in tourists night after night. But this week, I was introduced to the other side of Theatreland's coin, a show at the Arts Theatre. 

The Arts Theatre is, an independent commercial theatre in the heart of London’s West End, providing a programme of entertainment to suit everyone. Their current headline show is Dirty Great Love Story which Luke and I had the pleasure of watching last week.

My First Kiko Haul & Swatches

Kiko has always been a shop that I regularly walk past, sometimes have a look, but somewhere I've never purchased a single thing - very unlike me. 

After having to leave early from a recent work trip to Milan due to illness, I was sat at the airport feeling sorry for myself and decided that then was the perfect time for my first Kiko Milano haul. I mean, when in Milan and all that! 

I was in the shop a good half an hour before I settled on my purchases and I'm so happy with them, they're all now a staple part of my daily make up.

Haircare Favourites Review and Wishlists

Whilst I know I'm not big on hair styling, and you'll very rarely see be branching away from my simple and straight blonde hair, there are some hair care products I literally couldn't live without. Some have been in my collection for many years and some are new products I've tried in the last 12 months. But all are, in my opinion, amazing.

Chocolate Orange Shortbread Recipe

Anyone who knows me will tell you I have the biggest sweet tooth. I'd be quite happy living off cakes, biscuits and chocolate for the rest of my life, but sadly, I'm not that lucky!

Just before Christmas, we had a Christmas Bonanza at work so I took the opportunity to get my bake on and make some Chocolate Orange Shortbread Biscuits. Shortbread is my favourite type of biscuit as it's really sweet and literally melts in your mouth - if you have a good recipe!

This was the first time I'd tried out this recipe and I have to admit, I did improvise a bit from the original due to lack of ingredients so I've pretty much just made up my own version! Baking is all about experimenting any way right?

This shortbread doesn't need many ingredients and is a perfect recipe to try to replicate for beginners but also experiment with flavours for the more adventurous.
