Last weekend I had the pleasure of joining a food shoot hosted by the incredibly talented Tara with her brilliant baking friend Nikoletta. Tara is one of the most driven people I have ever met, and I feel constantly put to shame when I hear the amount of effort she puts in to achieving her dream career. She has the most beautifully curated collection of props, and a fantastic eye for style. Just check out her beautiful pinterest boards, so inspiring. Over the next few weeks I will be posting a few of the extra photos from the shoot, and of course will be sharing the recipes of the dishes I contributed.
The changing of the seasons has sent me into a bit of a fitness mode. My summer forgotten running shoes have been dusted off and I’ve been hitting the park, enjoying glimpses of skyscrapers through the treeline. After quitting my gym when I left Canterbury, I have dabbled in a few online fitness classes, with little luck. Xbox Fitness doesn’t register properly in our city sized living room and the Youtube videos where quite frankly terrifying! When I stumbled across Blogilates I was so excited. I can actually make it to the end of her videos! I may be shaking and sweating profusely but they are actually achievable for the average girl (ok I’m probably of sub average fitness!). I really hope I can hold on to this fitness streak, I have the slightly lame ambition of being able to run to London Bridge and back before the end of winter. It will also help me work off this ton of bread from the shoot this week.
Inspiring me this week:
I want to do: A capsule wardrobe, Caroline from the blogging bombshell Un-Fancy’s starter guide is so simple and clever. A spreadsheet and a giant pile of clothes and I am well on my way to my perfect fall/winter 37 items of clothing. It’s also a perfect excuse to go out a buy this and this.
I want to eat: This beautiful breakfast in bed from My Name Is Yeh, because not being the first one to brave the cold morning to put on the kettle is the ultimate form of winning.
My Sweet Tooth Wants: Pretty much anything that involves cooked apples and cinnamon, I seriously cannot get enough of them! These spiced apple waffles from Vegetarian Ventures really caught my eye.
This was really interesting: This guide to October produce in the UK by The Dinner Bell, it reminded me I need to make cauliflower cheese ASAP!
