Making a fancy dinner at home!

Posted on under the categories Food, Gluten Free, Photos

A while back I was sent my choice of recipes from gourmet chefs to try to recreate at home. Katy chose from the list because I am a nice girlfriend. Then she periodically reminded me I said I would make it, and I kept ignoring her, because I am a mean girlfriend. This past weekend we both decided to be nice girlfriends and make the meal: Katy provided the groceries and was my fabulous prep chef, and I was responsible for the actual cooking of the meal. So, how did we do?

The recipe in question was provided to us by The Four Seasons Hotel in Perthshire.

3 Ways to Enjoy Matcha Tea

Posted on under the categories Food, Photos, Reviews

Since I began working from home, I’ve definitely mixed things up when it comes to beverages. Gone are my days of a standard cup of tea (although I do still have one every so often… I’m only human).

Here are a few of my favourite Instagram accounts that post a lot of food for all your hashtag food porn needs. I definitely recommend you check them out for some inspiration and droolworthy food ideas.

Inside My Bathroom Lush Basket

Posted on under the categories Beauty, Photos

Every winter I go Lush crazy. My bathtub at this flat isn’t as big as at my last one, and I now take baths with a small dog crying outside (to keep her from jumping in). This one was no different, apart from the fact that this year I work part time in London, which means proximity to the Lush Oxford Street store, which meant after work splurge. It got to the point where Katy actually created a designated basket for my Lush products. Now our bathroom smells like Lush 24/7 (and we have to keep Poppy from trying to eat it for that amount of time as well!). Read more
