A Saturday stroll

 I love spending a Saturday afternoon strolling along the high street and exploring new artisan items up for sale at the beautiful market stalls. Here are some photos from my local Saturday market in Clapham North, as well as some snaps of the lovely shop Esca.

Hardback must haves


Lorraine Pascale 'Baking Made Easy'

My book obsession is beginning to get out of hand. But I thought I'd share some of my most recent/most treasured finds. Most of these are cooking related as it has been an ongoing interest of mine, but there are a few fashiony/arty ones that I will hopefully share in a lot more depth soon! I've taken the liberty to search each book on Amazon - so if you're keen to purchase, just click on the links above. Enjoy.

celebratory seafood

Stefan and I have now spent 4 (great) years together - yikes eh! Last weekend I was spoilt with an incredible champagne and seafood dinner date consisting of a mega platter of lobster, mussels, whelks (yuck!), prawns, crayfish, cockles and know what they say about oysters! Life is good.

Come dine with me

Zoe's fruity pavlova
Brad's canapes
Roxy's drinks
Alice's beautiful flat
my paella
and some of the gang

The other weekend my lovely LPC friend, Alice, played host to a splendid "come dine with me" style evening where we each brought along a dish and pigged out on almost 5 courses! The delicious food and silly games made for a great evening - and a fun way of learning something new about our pals and their signature dish. (Not to mention charades, and how to act out "Winnie the Pooh"...I'm sure you can guess!)

 Last Sunday I had the pleasure of spending a day out along High St Kensington with my Libyan princess, Lina. The Christmas sales have thankfully dragged on to mid January so we finally got the chance to snap up some excellent bargains, and were drawn into shops I wouldn't normally head into - Cos and The Kooples - where some new purchases were made (more to follow on those).
