I thought I'd share with you all a few snaps from my life over the last few weeks. I really enjoyed creating my last 'week in pictures post', and you guys seemed to enjoy it too! From this post, you can probably tell that I love a cappuccino (or two) and I most definitely have a huge sweet tooth! I've mentioned this in a previous post, but I'm currently obsessed with Breaking Bad. I flew through the first two seasons in one weekend, and I'm about to begin season four - I think it's safe to say I'm addicted!
When I'm not glued to my laptop, I have tried my hand at baking a few tasty treats, and last weekend I attempted my first ever pavlova! It failed slightly, as I accidentally used the wrong kind of grease proof paper (lesson learnt!), and when I went to peel it off, the whole thing crumbled in my hands. Yes, it was devastating, and my pavlova soon turned into Eton Mess. All was not lost though, as I quickly smothered the whole thing in strawberries, cream and chocolate, and it still looked and tasted amazing!
Have you also spotted the amazing Charlotte Olympia 'Day of the Dead' flat shoes? I've been a huge fan of the accessories designer even since I laid eyes on my first pair of Kitty Flats. These skull shoes have made their way straight to the top of my fictional designer wish list... One can dream!
Speaking of treats, I also tried my hand at baking vanilla custard kisses, or more commonly known as custard creams. The biscuits turned out much better than the pavlova, and were very easy to make! They have always been a favourite of mine, and I'll quite shamefully admit that I was responsible for eating more than half of them once they were out the oven... * Take note - recipe for the delicious custard creams will be coming soon! :)
I also had a slight hippie moment last week, listening to Fleetwood Mac on repeat whilst tackling the mountain of uni work I have at the moment. I was then inspired to watch an old favourite of mine, Almost Famous. I'll forever be lusting over the afghan coat Kate Hudson wears throughout the movie.
I'll end this post with one final message for you guys to take away with you on this cold, Sunday night...
'There is nothing better than hot chocolate on a lazy day.'
(I couldn't agree more!)
