Eton Mess!

I've always been a big fan of Eton Mess, what's not to like? Strawberries, meringue and double cream... yum!

So even with the weather being particularly wet recently, I'm still bringing a touch of summer eating. 


Eton Mess is super easy to make and I've seen many recipes about making the strawberries into more of a puree form. I prefer to cut them up into smaller chunks, rather than puree them. I also find it is very helpful to have plenty of strawberries and meringue to eat as you make it, trust me! 

You can also add anything else that you want, Eton Mess can just be the base, maybe add some nuts or a strawberry sauce. Chocolate flake on top? 

Whatever you decide. Enjoy!

I was sent a £3 voucher via the Tesco Orchard programme to spend on summer berries and cherries. I spent the whole £3 on that tray of strawberries and they were yum and perfect for making this mess haha!

Hello July!


Half the year has gone, it doesn't seem possible! I also started writing this post on the 1st of July and now look when I'm pressing publish... oops! 

I haven't written on here in quite a while now, the past few months I have wondered if I needed this space here and whether my blogging phase had passed. It turns out I still do.

The first half of 2015 has provided several low points; losing people close to me and dealing with that grief, anxiety flare-ups and that general doom of anyone who overthinks... 

To prove to myself that this isn't some 'blog and run' type post I have scheduled posts for the next few weeks. I think more because the organised side of this brain wanted that all done before I wrote this one!

I am back and I'm hoping the rest of 2015 is eventful but for all the right reasons!

It's... THE ASHES!


You might have noticed that I am a little sports crazy!

So anyway... THE ASHES starts tomorrow. Cricket time, the war between England and Australia. I absolutely cannot explain how much I love it. I shall be obsessed over the Summer and again later this year for the return down in Oz.

Here is a couple of videos that get me totally excited about The Ashes (hopefully they will for you too!)




Love it!

Isn't Bumble (David Lloyd) singing the best thing ever!?!

9 songs

I'm trying to compile some sort of Tracks of my Years piece. It's taking me sooooo long! Doesn't help that my Spotify favourites playlist is very close to one thousand songs. So I'm going to hit shuffle on my Spotify for a little series called "9 songs" and see if this helps me. You can also see my varied taste in music too :D

Moby - Honey

The Walkmen - The Rat

Fleetwood Mac - The Chain

Alanis Morissette - Hand In My Pocket

Marilyn Manson - Personal Jesus

Pink - Please Don't Leave Me

The Bamboos - I Got Burned

ABBA - Lay All Your Love On Me

Tyler Hilton - Jenny
