5 Things in My Purse at All Times [5 Fandom Friday]

5 Fandom Friday - In my bag

Lipbalm & Lipgloss

IMG_1628

I hate dry lips and so I always keep some lipbalm and lipgloss in my bag. I love nivea’s lip care range and use several different ones regularly. The current lipglosses I’m using are from Collection 2000.

 

 

Notebook

IMG_1626I love having a notebook with me so I can write down anything I need to know, or remember. To do lists keep me sane and stop me from over stressing, and I keep a diary for noting down date specific. Notebooks are also great to have handy if you’re a writer or student; ideas for writing or assignments can come at any time and I often write things down at random times.

 

 

Book

I should probably write an entry about coping/making life easier with chronic illnesses and pain. Keeping a book or my kindle in my bag at all times is just one way that I keep my mind off the pain. If I’m struggling on a journey or have to wait for a while I can get lost in a book and relax.

 

 

Water

IMG_1627I drink a LOT of water, and I always have water with me. It helps keep me hydrated (duh…), means I can take my medication when I need and helps if I get overexerted. I always have a drink nearby wherever I am.

 

Phone

IMG_1625Like my book/kindle, my phone is an excellent way for me to keep my mind off a crappy day. As I suffer from IBS I often use my phone to help keep me calm, and keep me busy so I don’t skin pick. I play games, or just check out twitter or facebook. I usually have headphones handy as well so if I’m in a situation that’s really noisy, such as a train ride or at uni when I’m trying to work, I can block it out. Also, I keep a phone on me for safety reasons. As a disabled girl with mobility issues it is too much of a risk not to have some way to get help if I fall and hurt myself.

20 + Super Cute World of Warcraft Pets Fanart

Sharing Saturday: World of Warcraft Fan Art - Pets

At least once a month you’ll find one of these posts popping up here at Ruby Wings Blog. I’ll be sharing some awesome stuff I have found from around the web. Sometime it will be art, sometimes fantastic websites, or geeky fashion. Naturally World of Warcraft fanart was top of the list and I’ve been dying to share some of my favourites with everyone. It is probably my biggest favourite folder on my DeviantArt account. So last week we had  Night Elves and this week I’m showcasing some fan art of companion pets or characters with pets. Some of these aren’t specifically pet related but seem to have a pet in them or are just so damn cute I couldn’t resist! There is also a bunch of gorgeous plushies, models and other pet related craft fanworks but that will be for another time 😉

If you like some of the art here please take the time to visit the artist’s DeviantArt and/or leave a comment to let them know. This is probably obvious, but: this post is very image heavy.

I cannot be held responsible for the insane amount of cuteness beneath this cut! 😛

16 Exquisite Night Elf Fanarts

Sharing Saturday: World of Warcraft Fan Art - Night Elves

At least once a month you’ll find one of these posts popping up here at Ruby Wings Blog. I’ll be sharing some awesome stuff I have found from around the web. Sometime it will be art, sometimes fantastic websites, or geeky fashion. Naturally World of Warcraft fanart was top of the list and I’ve been dying to share some of my favourites with everyone. It is probably my biggest favourite folder on my DeviantArt account. So last week we had couples for Valentines Day, and today we have Night Elves. A wee bit stereotypical I know, but, I love them. I can’t help it 😀 I used to own the fanlisting for Night Elves, my first character was a Night Elf Druid and I have three Night Elf characters.

5 Favourite Cupcakes [5 Fandom Friday]

5 Fandom Friday - Cupcakes

 

I LOVE cupcakes. I have two cupcake recipe books; For the love of Cupcakes which I’ve tried and tested various recipes from and Kinky Cupcakes which is a little bit above my expertise level still (but I cannot wait to have an excuse to use these!). So some of these are my own photos from the first recipe book.

 

20110527085004-04f63d86Butterfly Cupcakes

I have loved butterfly cakes since I used to make them with my mum as a little girl. They’re so easy to make and you just need to make a basic cupcake mixture. For those who have never had these; you cut out a lump from the top of the cake, fill it with butter-cream (butter mixed with icing sugar) and then cut the lump into two ‘butterfly’ wings which you put on top. Sprinkle with icing sugar and voilà!

 

 

IMG_0760Chocolate Fudge Flake Cupcakes

These are from my cupcake recipe book and are so rich and yummy.

 

 

IMG_0822Chocolate & Toffee Cupcakes

I made these (again from my wonderful cupcake book) for the teachers at the school where I did a placement at a few years ago. I made another batch, a less sweet recipe of Ginger and Lemon (which I quite liked) but apparently English teachers have a sweet tooth!

I have not made my own of these (photo credit goes to Salamander Stock), but I’ve eaten my fair few and oh my, I love them so so much.

Chocolate Cupcakes

Yep these are just a chocolate version of butterfly cupcakes, however, I couldn’t find a better alternative photo. I am a chocoholic so generally most chocolate cupcakes are amazing to me 😀 I have a whole bunch of cupcake recipes saved on Pinterest, including nutella and ferreo rocher ones.

Incredible World of Warcraft Fanart of Couples

Sharing Saturday: World of Warcraft fanart - Couples

Welcome to the first Sharing Saturday! At least once a month you’ll find one of these posts popping up here at Ruby Wings Blog. I’ll be sharing some awesome stuff I have found from around the web. Sometime it will be art, sometimes fantastic websites, or geeky fashion. Naturally World of Warcraft fanart was top of the list. It is probably my biggest favourite folder on my DeviantArt account. There is just so much beautiful work out there which means that I am going to have to split this into several editions. So as it’s Valentines Day tomorrow I figured a couples edition was in order!
