Outfit // 70's Vibe

Ark Clothing, Glamorous sheepskin coat
Coat - Ark* // Dress - Ark* // Boots - Topshop

I seem to be rolling with the seventies trend throughout my outfits recently. Last weekend saw me sporting some (rather wild) flares, and the week before I was wearing this awesome suedette coat. Now I've teamed the jacket of dreams with this folk style, paisley print dress, from Ark. 

Not being much of a dress person, or much of red person, this dress was a little out of my comfort zone. But the model on site looked so god in it, she did a good job selling it to me, so I couldn't resist! I love the fact it has a high neck, something I consistently look for in my clothing now. It also has some pretty epic open sleeves which you can see in a photo further on in the post, by clicking below...

Lifestyle // Matilda the Musical

Matilda the Musical

Last Thursday, Stew and I had the fantastic opportunity of watching Matilda the Musical at the Cambridge Theatre, in London.

It was a truly mesmerising evening. Only ever having seen one musical before this, I was extremely excited. A few friends of mine had previously seen it, and told me I would love it. And we really did! The entire cast were incredible. It was the children’s first evening performing, but you really couldn’t tell. They were each fantastic and very professional. It blew my mind how they can do it all – act, sing, dance!

The set itself was very entertaining too, with lots of moving objects and swings hanging from the ceiling. It was a lot of fun!

Recipes // Spiced Vegetable Biryani (3/6)

Spiced vegetable Biryani recipe

This week's recipe is one of my all time faves. Stew and I love to eat Indian food, and we've perfected our homemade curry recipe, to the point where we now offer it to every guest that comes to say. It's the one meal I'm really proud of. 

For one of my vegetarian challenges with, we were set the challenge of creating a vegetable Biryani. I've never made a Biryani before, but have often chosen it when eating out. So I was really excited to try our hand and making our own. 

The steps to making this dish are really simple. All of you should try it!

Outfit // boohoo Denim Dungaree Flares

Sweet Monday outfit, boohoo denim dungarees, boohoo denim flares
Dungarees - boohoo // Leather jacket - SheInside // Boots - Ted & Muffy // Bag - ASOS // Nails - Chanel 'Orage'

I wore this outfit to London Fashion Week last weekend with Katy, who very kindly took these photos for me on route. I've not really incorporated the seventies theme into my wardrobe, until I spotted these fun denim dungarees from boohoo. With flared legs and front pockets, it's definitely seventies, but I love it!

It's so different for me, and I was unsure at first, but their size 8 fitted me perfectly in all the right places. Which is something I think really helps when you're trying something out of your comfort zone. You want to feel confident.

Lifestyle // Popchips Lunch Box

popchips cheddar and onion, popchips lunch box

This is a bit of a random post for me, a little lunch time treat if you will! 

I have to confess, I'm a bit of a snacker. I definitely have a savoury tooth, more than a sweet, and love my crisps. So when I saw this super cute gift from popchips, I couldn't wait to give it a try. 

To celebrate the launch of popchips new cheddar and onion flavour, they have created bespoke lunch boxes including the new flavour, plus cheddar cheese, red onion chutney and the cutest popchips branded chopping board. Seriously how cute is that?!
