A challenge for my cupcakes... (And any randomer who stumbles on this)

A bucket list is (for any of you who didn't know) a list of things you want to do or achieve before you.. Errr.. Die. 
So my challenge to you is to make a three point long bucket list using only three points (although the word "and" can be used for anyone indecisive)!!
Your list can be deep and meaningful, relevant, pointless or even funny!! If you want to just make it really personal or anything just comment anonymously!! 
My three are...
1. Find my dream job and do it!!
2. Go to the maldives because I have always want to go and want to go before it disappears!!

3. Go to Glastonbury (and some other festivals...) because I love concerts and festivals like Glastonbury seem right up my street!!

So what are your three??
What is going on your bucket list??
Share and find out what your friends put!!!
P.S Would anyone be interested in doing a guest feature about their blog?? If you would let me know!! Maybe we could do one on each other's??

A quick review of... MAC Viva Glam Nicki 2 Lipstick

The Framecake reckons this is a five star product because...
On sale for £14.00

It's such a beautiful colour for a start! It feels so happy and sunny! It is quite Nicki Minaj but I didn't buy it for her! As I think I have said in a previous post I'm not a fan particularly but this colour was just too pretty to miss!! 
On top of that, the texture is more like a lip butter than a lipstick because it is just so smooth on your lips!! The beautiful colour stays so well too!! I wear it a lot because I am proud to own such a brilliant product!!
Ok... It is quite expensive but I really think you are getting what you're paying for with this product!! This is my first MAC lippy but it definitely won't be my last!! BUY IT! 

P.S I am wearing this lipstick on my previous post when I went to North East Live!!

Oh oh oh she needs a wild heart...

Hair band-Crown and Glory
Top and bag- Lipsy
Socks- Topshop
Shorts- Glamorous
The day before yesterday(Saturday) I went to North East Live and I loved it!! I'm pictured with Elz who is the girl behind closetdiamonds (I'm the blond by the way)!!! I know it's cheesy to have lyrics  as a post title but oh well!! The Vamps were there!!! A quick review of what I thought of anyone if you were wondering!!! Just my opinions though!! I'm no expert!!
James Arthur- I thought his voice was good but I am not personally a fan and thought his set was a little slow! I did enjoy listening to him though!
Amelia Lily- Didn't think I really liked Amelia's music but her set was great!! She had loads of energy and she was wearing a pair of Jeffrey Campbell Lita boots which I am absolutely obsessed with!!!
Little Mix- I thought the girls were absolutely great!! They all looked great together and were brilliant to dance to!!
Rita Ora- Rita was one of my favourite artists of the day probably because she was just so... So.. I don't know!! She's changed her look quite a lot recently and she looked absolutely amazing!! Her set was just great!!
Union J- Really enjoyed Union J too!! To be honest I only knew Carry You but that didn't matter because they were just so lively I didn't even notice!!!
Stooshe- Was really looking forward to Stooshe but I think they were actually a bit of a let down!! I love their music and they sung well but their set was just a bit long really and they didn't sing Waterfalls which was a shame!
The Vamps- I was one of the only one of my friends who didn't go to NEL as a massive Vamps fan but now I am definitely a convert! They were great!!
Conor Maynard- I am not a Conor Maynard fan and the fact he has been dubbed the british Bieber isn't good but actually he was very good to watch!!
Lawson- I have seen Lawson once before as support for the Wanted a couple of years ago but I feel that since then they have really grown as a band and have really created their own sound and their own image!! They were brilliant!!
The Wanted- One of the best acts of the day as per usual the Wanted were so much fun to watch and brilliant to dance to!! Even Walks Like Rihanna which I don't like was really really good!!
JLS- Not a JLS fan at all but it's probably going to be their last northern gig and although there was a bit of that ohh we're breaking  up stuff when they actually sang they were really good!!

Sorry for the wordy post but thought they needed to be reviewed as individuals!! You can see how it was a long show!!

Oriental Brilliance...


Kimonos from: Topshop £55, Miss Selfridge £55, River Island £40, Zara £49.99

I don't seem to have been doing these type of posts much recently!! Oh well!!
I may be tempted to say that kimonos are my favourite trend of this season!! They are colourful, quirky and a brilliant way to express your personality!! I love all four above!! My favourite might be the  white Zara one.. But I don't know really!!!
There's no rules about what to style them either!! All brilliant brilliant pieces!!

framecake has had a makeover

Very wordy post alert...

Why did I change what was already there?? I really don't know! I guess this blog is just evolving with me and my style!! I think that is the thing about new young bloggers like myself, I don't quite know exactly what my style is! I am constantly changing my dress sense and I think that works well for me!! I am constantly trying to keep this interesting for viewers who keep checking framecake and for new viewers!!

Whilst my blog is still getting a makeover I am going through all my old posts and smiling( OK, not that old, only being doing this since the beginning of March)... Have a look through too if you're interested! Click any random post on the side to see what happens...

The question is though... What would you like to happen next?? Anyone who views this can comment!! Recently allowed anonymous commenting!! Maybe you could be the first??

The giveaway is still going on too! CLICK HERE

Sorry.. Felt the need to say all of that!!!

A quick review of... Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream (first ever review AAAH)

The Framecake reckons this is a four star product because...

On sale from as low as £13.50
I started using 8 Hour Cream whilst skiing and found it made a great difference to my skin which was battered by the cold and the wind. I found that it really helped with this. I used it to help nourish my cheeks mostly but didn't use it in areas like my nose because I find that like many people, that is the place that becomes greasy the easiest!
I wouldn't recommend the product if you suffer from greasy skin because 8 Hour Cream will not help this at all in my eyes.
Normally I only use this product at night before I go to sleep and I find that in the morning, often my skin is noticeably softer and any red or sore skin seems better!
I would recommend that everyone tries this product at some point because I do think that it really does what it claims to do and is a well loved age old favourite for a very good reason!!
The only reason there wasn't five stars is because I realise this product is not perfect for all skin types!!

I hope you liked my first review! I am no beauty expert and am just going by my own experience!
