Chocolate chia cookies

I am an absolute cookie monster! Okay.. I love all things sweet but cakes and cookies are definitely my biggest weakness. As I write this Iโ€™m on a plane and Iโ€™m greedily eyeing up the air hostesses handing outย white chocolate cookies – I’m in the middle so I get to be served twice, once from each side.. that’s how it works right!?ย ๐Ÿ™‚ In my opinion, nothing is better than a warm, fresh cookie, slightly underdone in the middle, chewy and stuffed full of chocolate chunks!ย  Continue reading Chocolate chia cookies

Beigel Bake

Do you like bagels? What a stupid question, everyone likes bagels. Be prepared to meet THE bagel. The only bagel you need in your life. Seriously, I can guarantee it will be the best bagel you eat in London. Or the UK. (I would say the world but given the States is the bagel capital of the world thatโ€™d be a pretty bold assumption..). Itโ€™s soft, chewy, has that perfect bagel-y glaze on top, and itโ€™s stuffed to the brim with tender chunks of juicy salt beef (or anything else youโ€™d like .. but at least try the salt beef too!).

BAO

Following on from my random rant the other day about not liking inconsiderate people, I also hate disrespectful people. I feel like I get it from waitresses and shop assistants a lot. I go to Selfridges a lot to get gelato and wander round the food hall to look at all their amazing food and eat their free samples. But sometimes I wander into the designer section and some of the shop assistants just look at me like โ€˜what are you doing here?โ€™ Has anyone ever had the experience of walking into an expensive shop and felt like theyโ€™ve been looked down on!? Iโ€™ll admit I probably donโ€™t help myself by the fact that I look 12 (yay!) and that I always dress for comfort when I go into London (and all the time.. I live in leggings and baggy tops when I donโ€™t have to be at work!) but thatโ€™s beside the point – I just think itโ€™s an unnecessary judgement to make. Continue reading BAO

Cutter & Squidge

I really dislike inconsiderateย people. Iโ€™m not claiming to be a saint, far far from it, but Iโ€™d say that I really do consider other peopleโ€™s feelings and I try to do nice things for others when I can. Living in a flat has its advantages and I love our little flat but noisy and inconsiderateย neighbours can beย a bit rubbish sometimes ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I completely understand that some noise is unavoidable and I’m more than prepared to put up with a reasonable amount but honestly the people living in the flat upstairs sound like they hold a 24 hour exercise class where they invite half of London and are permanently doing a combination of squat jumps and fast feet. Itโ€™s like a constant thumping/running sound, combined with the fact that they seem to do their washing about five times a day (so our whole flat vibrates ๐Ÿ˜€ ). Continue reading Cutter & Squidge

Dubai 2015

Nope it’s not a typo – I’m writing a blog post about a holiday I took over a year ago! I love to travel but my blog is so new that I haven’t been abroad since starting to write it and since Iโ€™m going back to Dubai in a monthโ€™s time, I thought Iโ€™d write a post about my favourite places which I visited last time and those which I plan to go back to ๐Ÿ™‚ Continue reading Dubai 2015
