November Primark Haul & Try On

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Hello Lovelies! Today I’ve somehow against the odds managed to film and upload my first ever Primark Haul for YouTube.  Primark Hauls have long been one of my absolute favourite type of YouTube video to watch. I mean who doesn’t want to feel amazed by the awesome bargains available in one of the UK’s most loved stores? I can’t say I’m completely happy with my dodgy standard of editing or my totally awkward persona in this video BUT everyone has to start somewhere! At least there’s room for improvement…

So feel free to take a look and let me know your favorite piece.

Two ways to wear a cropped printed jumpsuit- Part 2

Hello Lovelies! I know this post is supposed to be all about the jumpsuit but… First things first- some of you may have noticed that tonight is Bonfire Night. I’m super duper excited to go see some fireworks at our local display, which always turns out to be an amazing show. And maybe get some hot chocolate too for good measure. Once Bonfire Night is over the happiest time of year also begins (it’s Christmas time in case you’re wondering!) In my head anyway- I know not everyone is so full of Christmas cheer. Unfortunately.

But I suppose if you’ve come to this post you’re probably here for the clothes and not my yabbering…

This is one of the few outfits that I’ve uploaded in a lonnnnng time where I’m like you know what I really love this look. To begin with, I wasn’t sure whether the jumpsuit would look so great layered as its such a summery piece but I think it really works for Autumn. I also absolutely adore this belt and just wish I wore it more often. It was available in two colours when I bought it and I should’ve really went for both! These Primark booties are so old that I’m honestly surprised they’re still going. It seems  Primark’s quality is actually better than people give it credit for. And it’s great to have a bit more height because lets be honest as a little person (5ft3 eek!) its not often that I feel tall wearing culottes. And particularly not a jumpsuit with culottes.

Thoughts?

Super Easy Apple and Blackberry Pastry

apple-pie-3 apple-pie-4

With Autumn suddenly very obviously upon us, I’ve come over all inspired to cook warm comforting food. Although there are of course a lot  of foods that make me feel all warm and cosy and generally just happy that the days are getting more chilly- hot chocolate anyone? I do think that two of my favourite seasonal flavours are apples and blackberries.

Were lucky to have our own apple tree in the garden so we get apples in abundance every Autumn. I mean boxes and boxes full!  I always feel that I need to put them to good use. Blackberries are in all sorts of hedgerows at this time of year too so you can pick them in the wild if you feel like a little adventure. I however took the lazy option and went to Sainsbury’s for my blackberries.  This recipe was inspired by a more summery pastry I saw on The Londoner- one of my absolute favourite food blogs so the results were really good!

Ingredients

3 big cooking apples (or any old apples will probably do)

2 boxes of blackberries

2/3 Tbsps granulated sugar plus extra for sprinkling

2/3 Tbsps Flour (plain or self raising)

Ready to roll puff pastry

Milk or 1 egg for brushing

Method

  1. Pre heat oven to 200 C.
  2. Peel and slice apples. Place into a bowl of water while they wait to avoid them going discoloured.  Wash blackberries.
  3. Once fruit is drained, coat with the sugar and flour in a bowl.
  4. Cover a baking tray in grease proof paper if necessary (my pastry came with paper already attached)
  5. Carefully roll pastry onto tray and evenly top with the fruit mixture.
  6. Fold over the edges of the pastry around the outside of the fruit to make a little crust.
  7. Brush the pastry with milk or egg.
  8. Sprinkle a little more sugar all over your creation.
  9. Bake for around 30 mins or until golden brown.
