The perks of snow days! Lots of time to indulge in home baked cakes! Our chalet hosts are so amazing this year, Joe and Martin have made an extra effort to help give me gluten free and dairy reduced meals and cakes! Look at these little gluten free Victoria sponge cupcakes they made! If you’ve read my new post on mediamarmalade.com today you’ll know I’m trying to cut down on dairy so their special bakes are so appreciated!!
Val d’Isere is another level of snow today! I’ve never seen anything like it in all the 20 years we’ve been coming here! My stories are like the day after tomorrow, have you seen them? We’ve ventured out for a burger but I’m already looking forward to the log fire again! Ps what do you think of this photo, it’s from my phone but I never usually use my phone on insta. It’s a brave moment for me haha!
Reminiscing to Monday when we had blue skies and fresh powder! Today we’re literally snowed in our chalet with nothing more than movie marathons, home baked cakes and a log fire for entertainment! No complaints here!
Today’s been a total snow day! Val is in the midst of a serious snow dump (most snow here in years) so there was really only one thing for it today, chocolate chaud and a cosy chalet day!
Waking up in wonderland! Fresh snow and blue skies ... lets see how long that lasts! Blue Monday’s never been better!
Departing richmond and my January veganism (ish) for snow, fromage and apres! There’s no denying the cheese and beer will be flowing and it’s not worth even pretending I won’t succumb! So for now, ciao england, see you on the flip side!
Early rise today and already at the airport drinking fizz and ready for the snowy alps! Happy Sunday x
Happy Saturday lovely people! This weeks been a bit of a busy one so I’ve not had a chance to share lots with you, but now it’s Saturday it’s all systems go! Today’s agenda is a stroll in Richmond, packing for Skiing tomorrow and friends for lunch before a cosy evening in and an early night! Now that’s my sorta Saturday .... oh did I mention the mammoth lay in?
This January I’ve been trying to reduce a lot of things in my diet in an attempt to get a little more healthy and help my tummy which if you read my blog you’ll know I have a few issues with. A nutritionist recommended I consider reducing dairy to help my UC, and I already avoid gluten due to a high intolerance! So I’m a pretend vegan if you will, or my favourite term reductarian! It’s not planning to be a fad January thing more a better lifestyle choice that I hope will ease my tummy condition, help eliminate migraines and my skin problems and generally shed a few inches (here’s hoping) .... anyway, I’ve been loving Anna Jones @we_are_food third book, a year in season, for recipe inspiration! She’s got some delicious veggie recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and puds! I’ve got all three books but this is my favourite! I’ve also made some really good veggie dishes from @jamieoliver website too!
Not entirely sure how’s even possible to have lived in London for 10 years almost and NOT visited primrose hill! 2018 is definitely going to be about exploring more corners of my own country! There are so many sides to London that I’ve still only touched the surface of! What’s your favourite part of London & where should we visit that we’ve probably not yet discovered?
I’ve literally spent an hour walking in and out of lunch places trying to decide something healthy ish to eat for lunch (made difficult by my gluten free and pretend vegan mission), I wish my lunch time decision making was as on point and quick as my hand bag decisiveness and conviction! Send lunch help pals, I’m getting hangry x
You know I’m loving something when I buy it in every colour! These @zara cord culottes have been my winter obsession and I now have them in three colours and actually this polo is my fave basic wear item from @insidejigsaw - so far I’ve got mustard and grey but I want one of these in every colour. They’re so comfy! The only thing I’m yet to own in every colour is the @gucci Princetowns, they need a little more saving for!! Do you find yourself doing that? Stocking up on the garments you love in every colour possible?
