Birthday’s are a fab excuse for everyone to abandon work and go out for food, drink, more drink, cake, drink and clubbing. Veggie fajita’s at “The Cricketer” in Leamington Spa are a truly delicious way to line the stomach for a friday night!
Happy Birthday Bee <3
It’s that time of year again! The time of year where my best friend has a birthday, and instead of buying her a present I make her a cake! Biba has had triple layered lemon curd cakes, and LSD-esc rainbow cakes, but this year is a little different! This year I had to make a cake that would be suitable for her new lactose-free dietary requirements. I give you, a lactose-free lemon and poppy seed cake, filled with vegan lemony buttercream and blueberries! The elaborate decorating was a welcome break from finishing my dissertation. I’m the queen of cake-related procrastination!
Lupita’s arms are my ultimate fitness goal. She has the most AMAZING arms. (and amazing everything)
Pancake day with the boys! I enjoy the bottom left photo the most. Instead of men stood around a BBQ, we have men stood around the stove discussing the logistics of pancake making: how hot it needs to be, how long before you flip, how you know when to flip, what the best toppings are, whether to single flip or double flip … I couldn’t stop giggling!

I’ve been getting a little complacent with my cooking recently. When you have so much to do (did I mention I’ve been writing my dissertation?) it’s hard to take time out and make something decent. For the past 5 days I’ve been living on scrambled eggs, houmous and cans of soup. It’s been driving me around the bend! This recipe rectifies that however, and injects some much needed excitement into my diet! So many lovely ingredients, and a good break from all the gluten fueled bread I’ve been consuming! Heaven!
I am having a shit day. Gonna eat a pack of Jaffa Cakes and cry over my dissertation in the Library.
burgundyish asked: That book is amazing!
I know!! Am only a couple of chapters in, and it’s already shaping up to be one of the best books I’ve read in a while :)
I have friend called Barney. Barney makes the best fudge you will ever experience in your life. This is in no way an over exaggeration . It’s truly fantastic. I have begged him for years to give me the recipe, but he quite rightly keeps it a closely guarded secret (I’m talking CIA levels of secrecy here!). However, lucky for me he’s a total babe and made me a hefty batch of Toblerone flavour (Is this what true genius looks like? I think so!) to keep me fuelled during my all-night dissertation marathons!
Real friends make their stressed friend fudge. Barney is my favourite. What a peach!
to commemorate valentines day Jords signed me up for tinder

After existing in the dissertation pit for several days with little sleep, my parents took pity on me and dragged me out into the sunshine for afternoon tea. How british! These are the sorts of things I can’t personally afford to do when I’m not at home, so naturally I was rather happy to take full advantage of it. Flowering jasmine tea remains an obsession to rival my coffee addiction!
My mum has been making these yummy cakes since I was a kid, so I decided to take the recipe for a spin. I bloody love fruit cakes of any kind, and these are just right for indulging in during an essay crisis (as I am in right now!).
Wagamama’s date with my beautiful best friend Elly (check out her weight loss blog, she’s over half way to her Goal weight! amazing!). I haven’t had Yasai Katsu curry for an age. Breaded sweet potato and aubergine is everything I need in life and more! Great way to spend a rainy day!
