Events // Biscuiteers

Sweet Monday, Biscuiteers, London, Notting Hill

Last week I got to visit the Biscuiteers cafe in Notting Hill with boohoo. We all enjoyed an afternoon of icing fashion based biscuits, and drinking yummy milkshakes! 

As the afternoon progressed so did our skills, and by the end of the session I managed to decorate my lipstick pretty well, if I do say so myself. It's surprising just how difficult icing biscuits is! 

The wonderful ladies that work at Biscuiteers are incredibly talented. The whole shop is practically made out of biscuit, and I love the way the outside of the shop looks like the illustration on their packaging.

Recipe // Tomato and basil meatballs, with creamy polenta

Sweet Monday, homemade tomato and basil meatballs, creamy polenta recipe

Last year whilst living in Melbourne, we dined at The Meatball and Wine Bar, and I had my first experience of creamy polenta! It's safe to say, after one bite I was sold!! One of my favourite things to eat in life is creamy mash potato, and polenta has the same consistency, but tastes even better. That's a big statement from me! 

Sadly we had not tasted it again since that wonderful day a year ago. So when my parents were in town last weekend visiting, we decided to try our hand at making our own. And I know I say this with every recipe I publish, but... IT'S SO EASY!

Home // Pavilion Broadway, LSA International Grand Posy Vase

Pavilion Broadway, ISA flower grand posy vase
LSA International Vase - Pavilion Broadway

When moving into a new home, it can take a while to build up a collection of furnishings, making it more homely. This was definitely a concern of mine when we first moved in. Whilst our white walls and dark wood flooring are beautiful, it looked very bare to begin with. We are slowly building up a collection of soft furnishings, and ornaments, and one of the first things on my list to invest in was a vase. 

I love to buy flowers, they make me feel happy and really brighten up a space. So a good vase is something I've really wanted to own for a while. This beautiful Grand Posy vase by LSA International, from Pavilion Broadway, is the perfect shape of what I was looking for.

Outfit // Ark Clothing

Sweet Monday, Outfit, Ark Clothing
Top - Ark* // Jeans - Ark* // Shoes - Topshop

A very monochrome, casual look from me today. I think this outfit is a perfect transitional style between seasons. It's already started to feel a little chilly the past week, and we've had the odd bit of rain here in London. It's still felt muggy on the daily commute though, so a jacket or lightweight coat feels too much. Instead, outcome these skinny ripped jeans and this long sleeve basic stripe knit from Ark Clothing.

DIY // Pom Pom Wall Hanging

Sweet Monday DIY, DIY Pom Pom, Pom Pom wall hanging

So I have to admit, I totally stole this idea off the beautiful Caroline. Her DIY posts have me pinning images every week. I don't know where she finds the time to do so many, but they're all so good, and super easy to replicate. If you're into a bit of crafty DIY, you have to check out her blog Burkatron :)
