Lemon Drizzle Cake


Lemon Drizzle Cake

In my recent bid to master some more of the baking classics, I realised it was time to give one of my absolute favourites a go: lemon drizzle cake.

Beautifully simple, it is the ultimate accompaniment to your mid-afternoon cup of coffee - and always a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. How then, was I going to bake a lemon drizzle which lived up to all of these expectations?

The Weekend Edit 09/06 - Timeless Classics




There is so much I am coveting on the high street right now - picking just a few items for The Weekend Edit this week was quite the challenge! But I've chosen pieces which I think would be great investments for all wardrobes, such as the timeless, classic leopard print pumps from M&S.

I think that you can never have too many Breton tops {I'm pretty sure Kate Middleton agrees with me on that one} and I love Crew's fun, slogan version - perfect for teaming with white jeans, or denim shorts as the weather hots up {admittedly hard to imagine right now with the rain pelting against the windows...}

Plain Sailing Breton
Leopard Print Pumps
For the last few weeks I've been dithering over pale pink jeans. Having seen some lovely skinny pairs in a couple of independent shops, I've umm-ed and ahh-ed over whether they'd fit into my wardrobe -  turns out the latest offering from Oasis are doing a very good job of convincing me...

Go on - treat yourself to something lovely this weekend. I promise I won't tell!

Museums & Milkshakes


iamsterdam letters - Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam

Museums. They're one of the main features of any city break, right?

Unsurprisingly, Amsterdam is chock-a-block full of them, and having already paid a visit to Anne Frank House during our first day in the city, we were ready to check out the competition on the Saturday.
