Skittles shake.

There’s a milkshake shop in the town over from me and they turn any kind of sweet into a milkshake. I always thought they’d be so sickly sweet that they wouldn’t be nice but they are so good. There the kind of milkshake that leaves you feeling full up.  Seeing as I’ve got a new (super) blender. I thought it …

Chunky crouton salad.

As a vegetarian people often find it amusing that I’m not a big fan of salads. There’s something daunting about a plate of leaves. I worry they won’t fill me up or they’ll taste like grass. But recently salads have been my thing! And this one is good. I do have to admit I like to add a good dollop …

Lately #43

What a week. I’m so thankful to have this week off. Time to be lazy, read a book, bake lots and explore in my new car. This morning I bought myself a car seeing as I passed my test just over a week ago. We went to the shop earlier and we all returned safely so I think we can …

Simple flapjacks

Sometimes the best recipe are the simplest. Basic ingredients combining together to make something delicious. I made these a week or so ago for a family picnic and they went down a treat. Flapjacks are something that I never used to like. Shop brought tend to be dry and break your teeth with one bite. When my mum started to …

Details

dress – new look, necklace – roam What’s this? An almost outfit post?  Shock, there’s not been one of those in months. I couldn’t be bothered to find a pretty place outside and other than the collar of the dress and the necklace there’s not much else to see. So here it is. Outfit details. I think I might do …

Lately #42

So this week was crazy. And I’m over the moon to tell you that I passed my driving test! At last, hey. I’m so proud of myself. I have been stressing all week and after lots of last minute driving lessons I haven’t had a lot of spare time. I’ve been meaning to bake all week and just never got …

Lately #41

I had a wonderful day out yesterday. We climbed trees and explored through woods. The braver ones and the ones not carrying an expensive camera ventured out onto the lake and rowed across it. We played on the zip wire and bouncy pillow the kids went wild. I enjoyed exploring the gardens, all the beautiful flowers. We finished the day …

Carrot cake friands.

I bought What Katie Ate recipe book in February and up until last week I hadn’t made anything from it. I can’t tell you why. I just hadn’t. The book is full of the most beautiful recipes with even more beautiful photographs. When I grow up I want to produce a book like this. It’s definitely worth a buy. Take …

Cut flowers

There’s no better feeling than having fresh flowers in your house. Ok well there is better feelings. But it’s nice all the same. I cut these off the hydrangea bush in my front garden.  When we moved in we decided to cut it all back as it was overgrown, I’d have liked a few more flowers left, but at the …
