My Top Travel Tips…

Trains, tubes, buses… we all have to get them at some point in our lives! For me, journeys can be quite stressful but during my experience travelling in London and to other places in the UK, I have picked up a lot of hacks along the way! I thought I’d share with you how I master travelling and my tips to success!

My Gran’s Coffee And Walnut Cake

This is a special recipe for me because it is my Gran’s coffee and walnut loaf cake. I think she made it up of various recipes but she always added milk to her cakes and so I have kind of kept the tradition too! I found the recipe amongst my recipe cards and just had to bake it! I love the fact that I still have the ingredients written in her handwriting! She used to make this most weeks and she was a very good baker. She always taught me to never overmix your cakes and she always made her bakes without electrical equipment. For this recipe, I have done the same and I think the result is a lighter and more delicate cake. I will definitely be baking more with the wooden spoon method in future as opposed to an electric whisk!

Outfit Of The Day… Royal Blues

It’s time for another outfit post! This time I used my new Olympus Pen for the photos. I got it for Christmas and I am in love with the quality of the capture. Let me know what you think! Obviously, this is the first time using the camera and so there is a LOT this camera can do that I haven’t discovered yet. Practise makes perfect though and so I hope to take many more up and coming photos with this little gem.

Review… taylor St. Baristas

Hidden in the back streets of Chancery Lane lies a taylor St. café. Taylor St. is a barista that produces exceptional coffee and is one of my favourites in London. The coffee beans are carefully selected and ground to perfection to create the smoothest richest tasting coffee! I only just discovered them recently and they have several baristas dotted around London including the likes of Shoreditch, Bank and Canary Wharf. However, I had never eaten at one of their cafés before.
