Morocco- Beldi Country Club


Everyone needs a holiday now and again- a little breath of fresh air & break from the chaotic & non stop rumble of working life. 
One of my promises to myself is to every year go somewhere completely new- no matter where that might be. This year I've already filled that quota with venturing for the first time to Venice, Tel Aviv, Morocco & actually, right now, I am currently drafting this post sat on a plane to Berlin.
It's safe to say wanderlust & me go hand in hand!

Sorry- I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's stick with Morocco for now instead of typical-me, wanting to conquer the world in a day.
With one of my dearest friends by my side, I landed in the sweltering heat & donned my sun hat- ready for the inevitable sunburn.

Pergola on the Roof


The British summer, whilst full of rain & Brits complaining about a severe lack of sunshine, does occasionally surprise. Every now and again, we experience some sunshine. Shock horror, I know.

(In fact, I'm currently typing this blog post with horrific sun burn. 
My chest is red raw & my knees are blistering. A delightful image I know...
- Tip... Do not wear ripped knee jeans in significant sun if pale skinned & ginger - )

Any how, my severe burning from the sunshine as a result of a gene that's wiping out all gingers via natural selection, is but of little importantance. 
What is important however, is where when the rarity of the sun occurs, where I will be found.

Gin & Tonic Cake



Without a doubt, I think that this is my favourite cake that I have ever made. 
That statement, I do not say lightly- I've made a lot of cakes in my twenty two years. But this, this wondrous cake is in a league of its own.
Not only because the sheer mention of gin in anything is heavenly, but because its light, airy, flavoursome taste marries perfectly with the zingy lime & tonic icing. 

This, ladies & gentlemen, is me if I was reincarnated in my true cake form.
 Looks innocent, packs a punch of flavour.

The Biscuiteers, Icing Lates


This is without a doubt one of my favourite blog posts that I've written in a long time.

A few years ago, imagine a wide eyed, red headed girl wandering down Portobello Road for the first time. Weaving through the crowds of people eyeing up the trinklets on each stall, she decided to detour onto the side streets to get a bit of space from the hoards of people.

There, just off Portobello Road, this young, ginger explorer came did a double take as she came across Buckingham Palace- yes, Buckingham Palace - in the form of biscuits... (Naturally surrounded by gingerbread soldiers & royal family.)

From there, my love of The Biscuiteers was born.

Coffee Cream Eclairs



This bank holiday weekend has been a cracker hasn't it?
I'm not going to lie, I'm tired-er now than I was on Friday; but hey- it was worth it.

Social Pottery


I've now been nicknamed the 'Queen of Brunch' by my house mates. 
Every weekend, without fail, as they are slowly waking up from their slumber, I'm already dressed & sat with a coffee in hand having a wonderful brunch. 
Last weekend wasn't an exception to this trend.

Venice, Day 2


Venice is without a doubt one of the most stunning cities that I've ever visited.
I mean, check that out as a morning stroll scene?

Bombay Sapphire Rooftop Retreat, Harvey Nichols


One thing that I'm famous for amongst my friends, is my love of gin. 
Oh sweet, sweet gin...
Understandably, I was invited along to Bombay Sapphire's new rooftop retreat at Harvey Nicols in Knightsbridge, I leapt at the opportunity.
What better way to cure the Monday blues than with my favourite tipple?
(And then Game of Thrones as soon as I got home...)

Venice, Part 1


This trip feels like a life time ago... 
Waking up midweek at the crack of dawn; and instead of making my way along the hustle & bustle on the tube to work, hopping on a rumbling train to the outskirts of London.
There's still no better buzz than hopping on a plane to somewhere new, is there?
