Blake Lively's bee bother

Blake Lively doesn't mind that her butt will "shrink" and her hands will "prune", because she'll never grow up.

The stunning actress runs blog Preserve, and created a new post in celebration of her 27th birthday earlier this month.

Entitled 'Happy Bee Day', she recalled an incident that happened while taking pictures for her website. While posing for the snaps, Blake suddenly felt something like "tiny invisible darts" all over her body.

"As it happens, I wasn’t being greeted by the onset of spontaneous ageing, but rather a full-fledged bee day. Attacked. All over. Everywhere," she joked.

"I don’t know enough about insects to say if they were wasps, honeybees or Mother Nature’s miniature flying tasers. What I DO know, is that just moments before we were in the midst of a gorgeous fall fashion shoot.

"Now, I was a Monty Python sketch; running at top speed in no particular direction, whipping my arms and hands around like I’d just discovered they were growing out of my shoulders without my previous knowledge."

The Gossip Girl star added that she was surprised to hear a loud screeching throughout all of this - before realising it was actually her, screaming.

To make herself feel better, Blake decided to indulge her love of baking by decorating a vanilla cake and creating a 'sundae' out of flowers, complete with baby's breath that looked like whipped cream.

"It wasn’t until I covered the counters in coordinating candy sprinkles that I stopped to acknowledge: my butt will deflate more and more, my hands will shrivel and permanently prune, but I will never, ever grow up," she wrote.

"It took a swarm of bees to remind me that a b-day is nothing but a number. Each day I choose my age. Today it’s 27, going on 2."
