Best. Cake. Ever

I married my dream boy two weeks ago with just our parents and siblings there, so all of our friends wants details, details, details. 

I’ve realised that I seem to regularly find myself describing the cake to them which was truthfully the BEST cake I have ever had. It probably helps as well that there were only 10 of us and by the time the cake course came along we were all past full so there was a lot left over.

I didn’t choose the cake, I gave the pastry chef full creative licence, which I now recommend to everyone! Sponge, ganache, cream, fresh strawberries… if only I could recreate it!

The next morning the hotel kindly sent us up the cake, complete with plates and knives and forks and voila! The best breakfast of my life was served to me (and on fancy fine china at that).

Winter is Coming….

It was tough getting through a five day week this week! And it’s suddenly got A LOT colder, when did that happen? Time to put aside my bright, summer cross body bag and look to a larger day bag or tote. Out with the suncream, in with the gloves, scarf, cardigan and thermos. I would have though five years in London would harden me to a little cool weather but no…. 

Not ready to completely pass on Summer just yet, so I am transitioning with a blue, suede look Diana Ferrari day bag.

I’ve realised that about this time every year my mind starts to wander towards Winter. Well, a European, fairy tale, Winter that is. Weeks on end of plus-30 temperatures probably triggers the yearly fantasy but still, it’s hard to push aside! I’ve been glancing through old photos and came across this, one of my favourites. Waking up to this was truly amazing. I just have to remember that walking in it to work was not so amazing! Still, hindsight is a lovely thing…
