Firstly, sorry this post is a tad late. I have been completely snowed under with Elf duties meaning that I haven’t given enough TLC to you. Sorry, pint of mulled wine on me. Anyway here is the post I have meaning to pop up over the past week, SANTACON.
The annual abundance of red and white adorned hooligans who flock to central London for a day of drinking, merrymaking, galavanting between pubs and landmarks and absolute silliness. If this ain’t festive fun in it’s finest form, I’m not sure what is. Continue reading
I am feeling SUPER festive. Continue reading
I haven’t popped up a savoury recipe for a while. I tend to stick to the sweet stuff but I thought I would share a salad recipe with you that I have been bloomin’ loving recently. Continue reading
I woke up in Bali to the sound of the morning surf, I gently pulled myself out of bed, stepped into my flip flops and wandered out onto the beach where the deep orange sunlight danced across the sea, skimming across the waves and glowing on the cool sand where my toes wriggled as they sank in deeper as the waves lapped over them.
Everyone is dropping like mince pies at the moment. All I can hear on the tube to work are sniffles, sneezes and naaasty sounding coughs. Despite my efforts to steer clear of these ‘orrible virus’ and bugs by smothering myself in strawberry laces anti-bac gel (SO good) and munching on a bunch of vitamin C, somehow one cheeky bug(ger) got into my system and I have come down with a pesky chest infection. Naaat cool. Continue reading
Last night me and Dana headed down to Brixton O2 Academy to grove/howl the night away to the absolute lyrical goddess that is Banks. Continue reading
I believe I may be a little late on the blog wagon with this one, however I’ma post about it anyway as I think it’s bloomin’ excellent – and there’s a small chance you may not know about this particular joint, so let me introduce you to The Good Life Eatery. A wholesome, LA-esque, allergy friendly cafe nestled in the heart of Chelsea. Continue reading
I am a few weeks into my new job elfin’ around at Harrods, it has been full of chuckles, wise chats with FC’s (Father Christmas’) and general festive fun ‘n’ games. Although I’m having a whale of I time, I’ve found hardly anytime to sit down and have a chinwag with you (I’m currently writing this whilst sat in the changing rooms). Continue reading
So I eventually got my mitts on some black beans. I thought I would happily settle with my Chickpea Blondie creation (they were bloody amazing) but I just HAD to give these black bean dreams a go. Continue reading
It is currently 01:17 here in the UK and I am up blogging like a crazy laaayday. Whilst I’m up and about the interwebz at silly o’clock, I thought I’d quickly pop this absolute gem of an advert up on here for you to see if you haven’t seen it already… You probably have. John Lewis never fail to deliver when it comes to creating beautiful and touching Christmas adverts and I think this may be my favourite yet.
What do you think?
I haven’t been on a plane in over a year. In terms of travel, this year was a bit of a write off with looming dissertations, graduations, lack of passport and a lack of dollar. It just didn’t ‘appen.
It is definitely cold/flu season. Went to sleep with mere sniffles and wake up feeling all hot and bothered with a bangin’ head ache and no voice? I feel ya.
This morning was one of those mornings so I decided to make myself a ‘JOG ON COLD’ breakfast: cuppa T, almond porridge with cinnamon, raspberries and honey, freshly squeezed orange juices and paracetomol.
Keep up that vitamin C, glug water, wrap up warm when you’re out and about and get a decent nights sleep. What have I missed?
If you are in summertime at the moment, I am GREEN with envy. Can I come and stay?
As I’m now working full time as an Elf in Harrods (LOL), I thought I’d post a photo of the day (potd) to keep the ole blog as regular as I can. Today I nipped into central London to get a few bits and bobs, once the lights flicker on as darkness falls, Oxford Street is the most buzzing, festive place with thousands of twinkling lights (and tourists). I thought I’d pick up a Starbucks, purely for the red cup – I know, who am I? I went for a almond and honey hot chocolate. Mmmmhmm.
Follow me on Instagram if you fancy more snaps!
Hope your well and warm! I’m sat still in my coat here sniffling on the sofa, bladdy colds. Lemsip anyone?
Ok – I’m not gonna lie, this is weird one. Possibly too weird but I’m gonna go with it anyway because I promise they taste absolutely bladdy amazing. Continue reading
