Green Smoothie

I was reading one of my favourite blogs the other day and came across 'Green Smoothies'.
Now, i love spinach more than most, only ever raw - none of this wilted nonsense.
The notion however of blending it with exotic fruits or berries however was not one that i thought normal or nice in any way.

I'm converted.
Here is the 'Exotic Green' -1 cup fresh pineapple chunks, 1/2 a banana, 2 big handfuls of spinach and 2 cups water.
I told my friend what i was drinking and she too used the words 'no, that sounds so weird'. It isn't. It is an absolute treat. One that i encourage any to try

I'm currently still full of a cold and nothing has made me feel like it's doing me more good. Elsie over at A Beautiful Mess tried out 5 concoctions and i'm excited to try them all and make up some of my own.

I dare you to have a try

Easter Sundae

Oh hello from this my third favourite day of the year!
Here is some sad news for you, i have a horrible cold.

This means one thing in my life... Not tissues, coughs, sneezes, none of these things. It means i can't taste anything!!
In my pantry is a bag of mini eggs, and two fantastic eggs. A Green and Blacks milk chocolate and an incredible looking Artisan du Chocolat egg.
If you've never had or heard of Artisan du Chocolat it is literally the most fantastic chocolate that isn't from a 'real' chocolatier. Their salted caramels are literally the best i've ever had from all over the world. Right now there is no point in me indulging in the half inch thick 70% cocoa egg as like i said, i can not taste a thing.

Oh this is a whiney post!!

In real life i love love love easter. Like i said, third favourite day after my birthday and leap day (which of course only happens once every four years!)

Now, Pinterest. my new ultimate favourite website.
It is invite only at the moment but i'm sure it'll take off to a point where anyone can join. If you sit and trawl the internet as often as i do and read all the blogs i do it is the perfect way to pin and remember things you see and like. Inspiration, hairstyles, animal pictures! Please take a look and see if you can request an invite because i'm aiming to back this big style.

I hope you have enjoyed this oh so slightly pointless post.
It is my third favourite day of the year after all.

Happy Easter x


Whatever i said, whatever i did, i didn't mean it.

To those of you diligent enough to notice the above is Take That lyrics!
'Back for good'
I'd like to hope this is a real promise this time!

 I'd like to say 'oh i've been terribly busy' or, 'oh i've been baking sooo much i've not had time to look at my laptop' or even 'i have actually been snowed under with uni work and not had time to play'...
All of these things would be a lie! As for the last countless months i have done zero! Zilch. Nada.

I have obviously attended some lectures, been out for a few 'quiet' drinks, celebrated my 21st birthday and oh, i've been to Berlin and back. None of those things however should really have stopped me from blogging about life and all the things i like.

 So here it is, my sincerest hope and pledge to you all, even those that read in far away places like Australia and India (I like you the best!) I will blog once more. About all the places i go, food i eat, drinks i drink and of course all those things i love.

To restart this magical adventure, here is so photo inspiration in the form of my favourite ladies of right now...
