Just 5 things I’m loving right now…

Relaxing with candles c/o Isle of Skye Candle Company.
Mint love with a new leather sleeve from Asos and a late birthday present ipad!
Pickled and vacuum-packed beetroot are not my friends.  But fresh?  Fresh beetroot is my best friend.  Roast it and put it in a nice halloumi salad, trust me.
Making perfume and polishes pretty in clear vases.
Hendrick’s G&T with a splash of Bottle Green elderflower cordial ideally enjoyed in the sun.

    Beets! They are so delicious, especially this time of year! You mentioned once that you made beetroot brownies? And you also recently made eggplant chocolate cake. I wonder, how do you come up with such creative flavor combinations? You are a brave culinary adventurer. 🙂

      I did but they weren’t fooling anyone – beetroot should just be beetroot and not masquerading as anything chocolate related! I’m not the culinary genius actually – the recipes are from the book Red Velvet Chocolate Heartache which uses veg in all the recipes.x

      definitely! I can’t believe you haven’t tried it already! just chop it into chunks about 1 inch square, toss in a tiny bit of oil and roast for about 25-30 mins in a hot oven. Let me know if you like it!

    what a cool idea to keep polishes in clear vases!! 🙂

    Methinks I’ll give it a try and quote you on a sticker outside of the vase! 😀

    Lots of hugs to you and your beautiful mind for creating and inspiring!
