I thought I'd do a super quick FOTD for you all as I haven't been posting a lot recently and am trying to get back into the swing of things again!
So, today myself and my mum went out with the Dexter to meet up with the woman who gave him to us and his older brother Barnaby, I wanted to keep my makeup to a minimum and go for a simple but pretty look! I took these photos in the bathroom mirror as I was literally about to rush out of the door! I'm sorry about the poor quality too (haha).
I've also changed my hair slightly, it was pretty messy.. I used a permanent dye to bring it back to a natural colour and I've cut in a slight fringe cut in! Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!

Our puppy Dexter adores his treats and is always keen to try out new ones, so I thought I'd devote some time to baking him some scrumptious pupcakes as a surprise!
I love my dog, so much, he's become a massive part of our lives that we regard him as a part of the family, a little bundle of life and love that is so spoilt and pampered that can't you resist indulging him.
These pupcakes are full of all the things pup's love, lots and lots of peanut butter! I love to bake, especially for other people to enjoy so I thought it would be lovely to make some homemade treats for Dex where I know exactly whats going into them, no nasty additives or anything! Just tasty wholesome ingredients! They're great to share with other pups and dogs too ;)!
So this is Dexter, isn't he cute! I know I did a post about him yesterday but I thought It would be nice to go into some depth as I guess it's relevant to this post! He's become very popular around parks and on the street, we're constantly being stopped so people can pet him and ask about him which he and I both love, what pup doesn't love to be the center of attention?
Dexter is an English Springer Spaniel who is 4 months, still very much a puppy! However I feel he is one of the smartest dogs that I've ever come across, I'm not just saying that because he's mine, he knows an array of tricks: sit, stay ,lie down, high five, spin! He loves to play fetch, run around mad and have his belly rubbed, but his favorite thing to do is play rough with his bestest friend Ruko! He's also so cheeky, he ignores his own ball to steal other dog's and never gives them back!
Despite all the puppy craziness he's growing into a really wonderful dog, he loves all humans and dogs alike - he also has a keen interest in the cat! He's learning more tricks as time passes and is developing lots of lovely spots and markings, his hair is also starting to get longer and his tail is starting to fan out!
He's so adorable! He has what I like to call 'bed ears' (haha) as they are so fluffy and curly they just puff out and look so, so cute!
He really loved the pupcakes and demolished it in seconds! They're so easy and fun to make your doggie will love them! A really great homemade treat, now for how to make them!
Peanut Butter Pupcakes
Makes: 15 pupcakes Prep Time: 10 minutes Bake Time: 20 minutes
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter (unsalted it possible!)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups wheat flour
For the frosting I just use a small amount of peanut butter with 2 or 3 small treats to decorate.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a muffin tray with about 15 cupcake cases, I'd add a few more just in case you have slightly more batter or how much you fill up the cases, I'd recommend half way.
In a bowl medium or large add the peanut butter, eggs, vegetable oil and vanilla and beat together with a whisk until the ingredients come together to form the mixture.
Sift in the flour and baking soda then using a spatula fold it into the mixture making sure it all comes together nicely. Using an ice cream scoop place the batter into each of the muffin cases.
Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 350 F or until a cocktail stick can be inserted into the cake and be pulled out clean.
Remove from the oven and set aside for a around 5 minutes to cool before placing on a wire rack to cool completely.
You can freeze the pupcakes in the freezer as a treat for hot days! - I can guarantee your dog will love these pup cakes!

I'd like to start this post of by apologizing for my super long absence these past few months. I've well and truly been M.I.A, so I'd really like to say a massive thank you to all of my followers and also say a massive sorry for not posting in so long, but that is all about to change as I'm back now! I've also changed the name of my blog and gave it a new look, I just felt like a fresh start, I hope you all like it! Over the past months A LOT has been happening, exams and school have been so stressful that I've literally had no spare time to sit at my laptop and get my blog on, school in general has just been pretty stressful! I've also been rather sick too with a bad case of tonsillitis, which luckily they will be getting removed as soon as I get an appointment with ENT.. That pretty much drained all my energy as all I'd just been doing is sleeping and doing not a lot, you kind of lose spirit when you're run off your feet and feeling down.
I do however have a nicer reason for straying, I got a puppy! I bought him by myself using the money that I'd been saving since my birthday, it's so lovely knowing he's truly mine! All the family love him and I did speak to them about it before getting him so we all knew we were ready for him!
So, This is my 4 month old puppy Dexter! Isn't he adorable? He's an English Springer Spaniel who is liver and white, he is so playful and boisterous I've been run off my feet trying to keep up with him, he just loves everyone that he meets and constantly wants to be cuddled! He's so clever he already knows sit,stay,down,paw and spin, all for a treat mind you ;)! He's so full of energy he has 3 walks a day and we meet his best friends Kuro and Ruko in the park for a play. I love this little cutie and he's brought myself and my family so much happiness and love!
This was just a quick post to say that I'm back and to update you all! I was thinking of doing lots of pup related posts and updates on Dexter in the future. I'll be doing a proper post ASAP!
