Lemon Drizzle Cake!

I've always wanted to bake a Lemon Drizzle Cake and now I have for the very first time, woohoo! It turned out a lot better than expected and the dental nurses in work absolutely loved this little gem! It was lovely receiving such great compliments on how beautiful the texture of my cake was and how great it tasted. Guess I didn't go overboard with that lemon zest after all! Here is the recipe I used to make my Lemon Drizzle Cake.

Simple Monochrome!

This outfit is a testament to the beauty ans simplicity of monochrome! It fits into my year round wardrobe, it's effortless and enables you to throw an ensemble together in a matter of minutes, which is exactly what I did this morning. One of my favourite things about winter is knitwear, very basic yet so practical. What could possibly go wrong?

Burst of Grey


I know what you're thinking; it's not my fault that I'm really into black, white and grey at the moment. Lets blame Pinterest for its major style inspo, actually starting to feel like a minimalist after years of trying not to be one. Anyway, the weather is getting colder and so it was time to dig out the big guns; a fluffy faux fur leopard print coat. Who else is feeling all warm and toasty already?!

Spectre!



The amount of media buzz that's been around the new James Bond film 'Spectre' the past 2 months is actually insane. I'm a huge James Bond fan and so it was only inevitable that my boyfriend and I would make a trip to the cinema on Wednesday to watch it. Was it worth it? Most definitely!

Chicken Madras Recipe!

What I'm about to say should not surprise you; there is absolutely nothing quite like authentic Indian food prepared with simple ingredients and a whole lot of love. It's all about tonnes of hot Indian spices packed in one pot. Chicken Madras is definitely one of the favourites which is why I sacrificed quite a lot of time perfecting the dish. All that's left is for me to actually visit India; just something I'd like to cross off my lengthy bucket list.

Halloween: Little Tigress!

I've definitely had my fair share of Halloween Parties the past few years but honestly, I just don't learn. Every year, costume preparation is a last minute thing which isn't exactly great but I don't see it as a bad thing either. It's a challenge, a chance to get even more creative than usual and so last night, I turned into a little Tigress! And yes, I did the face painting myself in less than half an hour. What woman doesn't love a good dress up..
