Tuesday Treasures

It's Tuesday once again and that means it's time for 'Tuesday Treasures' where I share with you six blogs or websites that have caught my eye over the last week. So, without any further ado or even messing around, here they are. Just click on the title to go to the site.

Hot Toast and Jam - this is the blog of artist/designer Mmm where you will find beautiful photos and artwork as well as some of his musings and a few other things. Not only that but fortnightly, on a Tuesday, he runs a co-op where he gives a theme and other artists can link their work on that theme to his site. Many of the sites are really worth taking the time to look at.

Tom Percival - this is the blog of Tom Percival, a writer and illustrator of children's books. He also illustrates books for other writers and I found out about him through a book called 'The Tiny Wife' by Andrew Kaufman. Lots of lovely images and many other things on this blog.

Lauduree - this is the website of Lauduree, Paris and I decided to have a look at it because I was given a beautiful box of Lauduree macaroons last week and wanted to find out more. It is such a beautiful website. Just click on any of the items in the scene to get further information or on any of the links along the top of their scene page. Just beautiful!

Tweetsmarter - this blog is a must for anyone who uses Twitter. It belongs to Dave and Sarah Larsen who are better known on Twitter as @TweetSmarter and gives great advice and information on using Twitter to your best advantage. Really worth exploring.

My Life Blogs - this is a great motivational and inspirational blog. To be honest I've only just discovered it so I'm still finding my way round it but so far I am loving what I am reading so I'm sure you will too.

Talli Roland - this is the blog of novelist Talli Roland. Here you will find posts about her own novels, guest posts, posts about other books she recommends and posts about everything that's going on around her. Having just finished 'The Hating Game' which I loved and highly recommend. (click on it to read my review), and having literally just purchased her brand new novel today 'Watching Willow Watts' (which I can't wait to start) I just had to share this one with you.

Hope you enjoy!

Until the next time,

Stop! It's Going Too Fast and I Want to Get Off!

Carousel Okay - I don't actually mean that I want things to stop so that I can get off because I'm having too much fun but, over the last few months, my life has become a daily whirlwind of new businesses, taking on new projects, building websites and building a brand and it's not showing any sign of slowing down. I have loved every minute of it so far but it has meant that so many other things in my life have had to be put on the back burner whilst all this has been going on, including Cupcakes and Cadenzas. It will all have been worth it in the long run but I just want to say thanks to everyone who has stuck around and not abandoned this blog and to say that I haven't forgotten about it or you. Why I love Cupcakes and Cadenzas so much and refuse to give up on it it is that it was the very first blog that I set up and is therefore my 'baby' as far as blogs go. I have several other blogs set up for various business ventures but Cupcakes and Cadenzas is

10 Things About Me You Would Never Know Unless I Told You

10! I often read blog posts which list a number of facts about the blogger and, I have to confess, I love reading them. I'm often surprised at things people do or have done, places they have lived etc. It's funny how you build up a picture of someone you don't actually know and then they give you a few facts about themselves and that picture can be completely changed. So here are my 10 facts. I was going to title the post '10 Facts About Me You Would Never Know Unless I Told You and Probably Wished You Didn't Know Once You Read Them' but that was just a bit too long. Anyway... I studied Wing Chun Kung Fu for several years My ultimate comfort food is a white roll with tuna mayo and Branston pickle. Don't ask I have a tattoo and for anyone who is wondering - yes - it was painful and no - I don't regret getting it. I like love adore Pingu When I was at school I fenced for Scotland (the sport of fencing as opposed to handling stolen goods of

10 Things I Love About Autumn

Well, summer is over and it's now autumn. The seasons are very easy to work out as far as I'm concerned. March, April, May -  Spring June, July, August   Summer Sept, Oct, November Autumn Dec, Jan, February - Winter I love autumn. It's my favourite season of the year and here are 10 reasons why I love it so much. The beautiful autumnal colours of the leaves on the trees. I love the varying shades of greens, yellows, browns, oranges, bronzes, reds and pinks Thick homemade soups and fresh crusty bread. In particular Scotch Broth - there's nothing to beat it Frosty mornings Lighting the fire and the smell of the logs drying out in the log basket beside it Jumpers, knitted dresses and woolly tights Huge mugs of proper hot chocolate made with fresh vanilla, chilli flakes, whipped cream, marshmallows and a dash of brandy. (recipe to follow) Walking through carpets of fallen leaves in the woods with the dogs Curling up on the sofa on a grey afternoon to
