Today's outfit was thrown together around this dress which I haven't worn in quite a while, after going through a phase of it being one of my favourites..I tend to fall in and out of lust with clothes fairly easily, but I like to keep hold of them in case I change my mind..Well, unless something really doesn't fit anymore, like these shoes, which are definitely too big..

I also wanted to share some of the photos from last night's unit heat in our County Cupcake Competition..The entire county has been challenged to take part in the competition, with girls from all sections competing in their units for a place to go ahead to their district / division rounds..
I was really impressed with the amount of effort the guides put in for this - as we don't have an oven at our meeting place, they baked six cakes at home, and brought them in to last night's meeting to decorate..They could then put forward two cakes to be judged, on taste and decor..

When it got to the (blind) judging point, we were impressed to see that some of them were 'red velvet', whilst others had layers of buttercream, lemon curd or jam inside them..I was also amazed at some of the decorations; I was glad it wasn't down to me to pick a winner to go to the next round!
