Milo & White Chocolate Cookies

4th July 2016

Milo? I hear you say. Yes, that childhood staple (well at least in and around South East Asia) of malty chocolaty goodness. Definitely in my top list of things that make you go mmm… The closest UK equivalent I can think of is a mix of hot chocolate and Horlicks. Although I have recently seen that you can buy the iconic green tins in various UK supermarket chains now! I absolutely adore Milo, whether it be in its usual drinkable form mixed with water or milk, or even topping a bowl of porridge. Thanks to a recent visit from one…

I’m growing a humanoid

6th June 2016

It’s probably about time I dusted off the cobwebs from my dear little blog. I’ve had so many things I wanted to write about, so many pictures I wanted to post. But it turns out that growing a humanoid is actually pretty life consuming and what I wanted to prioritise. Most people in my life know now about the impending arrival, affectionately nicknamed Wasabi, so I thought I’d give a quick low down on the last 33 weeks. Yes, I am 33 weeks today! Conception Use your imagination… First Trimester (weeks 0-12) Apparently I was one of the lucky ones.…

***NB: Giveaway is now closed, no more entries will be accepted. Winner announced below!*** We’re officially 1 today! When I started this blog a year ago on 20th January 2015, I didn’t really know what I was going to do with it. I’d previously blogged in my teens/early 20s and then just stopped completely for almost 10 years. So to celebrate that I’ve actually kept going and am currently planning to keep going I’m hosting my first giveaway… hoorah! I’ve had a lot of fun blogging about a random assortment of things, but I think these are probably 3 of…

Lumiere London 2016

16th January 2016

Who doesn’t like looking a pretty lights, even if you gotta be out in the 4 degree cold? (Readers from Scotland, colder parts of Europe and anywhere else that might mock me for my meekness, I fully accept my inability to cope with the cold!) From 14th January until this Sunday 17th January, Lumiere London brings a spectacular showcase of light inspired art and intrigue. The festival of light is located at 4 sites across London. I had an hour to kill before meeting Liz for a late night play near Kings Cross, so I thought I’d try and see…

Super Sinful Oreo Fudge

8th January 2016

Coming from a person who has a super sweet tooth, even I could only handle this fudge in small doses. You’ve been warned! But saying that, just a little piece is so, so satisfying. For the Brits reading this, it’s not really fudge in the sense of Cornish clotted cream type fudge. It’s well, it’s hard to describe but certainly in the realm of melt in your mouth dreamy! I must have had fudge on my brain for a while. Possibly a post-Christmas thing, but I’ve been wanting to make something fudge-like forever. This is also really easy to make…

Sunrise on a New Year

Happy 2016! NB: This is a photo heavy post. Since we’d had a quieter night in the night before, I’d somehow managed to convince hubby to take me out early this morning to watch the first sunrise of the year. Seeing as we live in South London, finding a good east facing hill not more than 30 minutes drive away almost proved too much! But Reigate Hill came to the rescue. Now all we had to do was to get a good 5hrs sleep and wake up fresh at 6:15am! Urgh… Well we did it! Armed with thermals and walking…
