Love the idea of personalised cakes? I know I do! I was lovingly sent a Letterbox Cake* to review and boy! Did it not disappoint!
A bit about Bakerdays
Bakerdays is a personalised celebration cake specialist, providing cakes for ALL types of occasions. There are so many delicious recipes to choose from, you can pick a traditional vanilla sponge to a lovely lemon drizzle option.
They're available to deliver for 6 days a week and if you order before 2 pm, you'll be eligible for next day delivery! How convenient!
My Bakerdays experience
The Letterbox cake actually fits through the letterbox! That is want really astonished me, I didn't think it would be possible for a cake to fit through and I was so worried about the cake when it would drop after the postie would put it through but it was actually ok!
The cake came packaged in a very sturdy cardboard box and when I opened it there was a small card, a pack with balloons, candles and a party whistle blower. Everything you could possibly need to make that moment extra special. This is such a neat little touch that makes the package an overall fun experience to open. The cake came in a keepsake tin which I know I will be using later. I opted for a photo cake that featured my hubby and son. There wasn't an occasion to celebrate so I decided to dedicate this cake to the hubs, for just being my rock and for being such a supportive and caring husband and father too!
We was amazed at the quality and colours on the cake, it was very vibrant and the words were placed well too!
I opted to go for the traditional vanilla sponge and oh my word! It tasted amazing and for something that was being sent because it literally tasted like cake out of a bakery, so fresh, moist and full of flavour. The icing wasn't too sweet so you can definitely scoff more than one slice, you get 3-4 servings out of this cake and I am so glad I chose the traditional sponge option as the icing adds just the right amount of sweetness to the mix.
A Letterbox cake costs £14.99 which I think is an ok price since it contains extras as well as being personalised too! The quality and taste of the cake is so worth it though!
We all really enjoyed this cake and I would definitely recommend Bakerdays for a special occasion for friends and family.

There's nothing I like more than an organised skincare routine and I enjoy a little self care routine before bed. It's the perfect time to unwind, apply all those lotions and potions and obviously remove make-up which is SO important!
Step one - Cleanse, tone and moisturise
I always make sure to take the time out for this really important step. My skin instantly feels and looks cleaner and I know that my make-up has been completely removed, which means a cleaner and fresher base to work with when I wake up. At the moment I am using the Clarins skincare range and what a difference it has made to my skin!
Step two - Atmosphere
Atleast an hour before sleeping, I put my phone on silent and turn off the wi-fi, as much as it is tempting, it will keep you awake and thinking rather than feeling relaxed so this is a must for me. Next I spray the room with a room mist, I have nearly finished this lavender pillow spray. I spray the room and pillows since lavender really drifts me off to a perfect night's sleep.
Step three - Bedside beauty
You will always find three products on my bedside table: an eye-cream, lip balm and some handcream. I get under the duvet and start applying all my key favourites. An eye cream will help to reduce any darkness under the eyes and make your eyes feel soothed while a lipbalm will nourish and re-hydrate the lips, the Clarins lip perfector is my all time favourite and a trusty hand cream will sort out any dry skin and since they do so much in the day, you cannot afford to miss this step so do invest in a good hand cream!
What is your bedtime beauty routine?

The cutest pair of lipbalms ever! One is a cat and the other is a bear *awws* both balms are dome shaped and are easy and fun to use. Cotton candy and White peach are the flavours which makes it much more fun than the usual strawberry lip balm, definitely one of my favourites!
