February 11, 2015

Hallmark holidays are there to lol at, until you get dumped for gifting a jar of Mayo, that is.
Her face will drop when you give the whole, ‘you said you didn’t want anything’ spiel, and you’re forced to wrap your nearest condiment in a silk bow and smile forgivingly.

THE CAMBERWELL KITCHEN BRUNCH | BRIXTON VILLAGE

October 1, 2014
bettiazurebrixton5
So I try to cut gluten out of my diet as much as possible which often means i’m yearning for a fat, four cheese pizza between 00:01am and 11:59pm everyday. But bored of ‘free from’ I was NOT on Sunday 17th Aug (making TBS a thing), as the supper club darls from The Camberwell Kitchen fed me tasty, gluten free delights in the shape of a 5 course meal. The first and last course being a cocktail – life mantra.
It went like this: Bloody Mary; Flourless caramelised banana pancakes served with Greek yoghurt and toasted almonds; Sweetcorn fritters with Flock & Herd treacle bacon (or halloumi for vegetarians), home-made ketchup, avocado mash, tomato salsa and carrot and beetroot slaw; Strawberry & basil ice-cream with balsamic macerated strawberries and Amaretto biscuit; elderflower prosecco. De-waitforit-lightful!

They held the affair in Brixton Village with an intimate setting of 14 randoms with one thing in common other than the table. Nay, not Instagram (although probably Instagram), but a hangover. And this my friends, was the parfait cure.

TCK’s next pop-up is on the 18th October, tickets soon available here!

Cheesy Fingers: smoked comte cheese, toast, jalapeños, pale ale, and beef dripping w/ sweet chilli chip.
Beef Leaves – Herefordshire beef, baby gem, chilli, ginger, coriander, cashew, spring onions and horseradish. 
Roast sirloin of Herefordshire beef, yorkshires, truffled roasties, greens, roast parsnips and gravy.
Mouse, Hazelnuts, Cake, Milkshake, Raspberry mint and biscuit. 

There’s genuinely no better way to spend a Sunday in London than heading over to The Dead Dolls House in Hoxton, to get fat and drunk with the boys from Checkon.
It’s £25 for four, bloody delicious courses with a smeeeeeashing atmosphere. Although, be warned, making friends with your table neighbours gets dangerous; tequila shots roll and sing-songs get freak-y…
The staff are always up for a proper good laugh and the food is worth ten times the price. 
I’d go EVERY week if I could.
Choose your meat and book! Rumour has it, they have a few tickets left!
Ello round 2…
CLUCK – 23rd March & 6th April
OINK – 13th April

P.S. Trade in your skinny jeans and rip off ya girdles, you’re gonna need stretch and lots of it. Enjoy piggies!

DON’T TOUCH MY STUFF.

February 16, 2014
IMG_6500ed
If we do the unthinkable, would it make us look crazy?

As a kid, the end of the six week holidays would be enough to make me vom with sadness, but luckily Mum always had my back. After all, she taught me how to instantly flip negatives into positives. This could only mean one thing…
A trip to WHSmith. 
 There i’d be, sat like a pig in shit on my bed, my eyes feasting over all my sexy new STATIONERY.  No ones touching these i’d say. NO.ONE. I’d go through and sharpen all of my new pencils which would of course co-ordinate perfectly with my new pens, pencil case, ruler and compass; naturally purchased to engrave SBH + WOT into the edge of any table which dared confront me.
Chic-for-life
Why get that fugly white school ruler when you could get a glittery, shiny, magical, thermal one which changed colour when you touched it!?!? SOLD! I die. I feel like a unicorn just thinking about it. 
I treated myself to a new, pink yoga mat in the month of January, which FYI is still to be used as an actual yoga mat. Oh, I slept on it when drunk actually, if that counts for anything. This purchase flicked a pink switch inside of me. I went on to spoil myself with a handsome pink Smythson ‘Make It Happen’ notebook along with the most perfect, Princess pink Aspinal Of London diary. The pink theme continues as I plan on buying these snobby b*tches on payday. 
Long are the days of writing To-Do lists on my iPhone notes, ticking them off with a ‘thumb up’, ‘thumb down’ emoticon. Nah, I’m a grown up now, and I use a real life pen and write tingz in a real life diary.

Love you, stationary. Thanks for brightening up my desk and filling that wannabe organised void in my heart. 
P.S. What beautiful flowers , I hear you say! I photographed them last week for the Browns Fashion Blog; created by By Appointment Only and purchased by very dapper men just in time for the big V day. 

Other pink things that are making me go, Oooh!

V FOR VALENTINES, L IS FOR LAST MINUTE.

February 13, 2014
VDAY
Yahhhhh, we know. It’s a money making scheme, Boo-hoo!
 Do you know what will really make you cry though? Ha, ready? Bruised marbles. TWO marbles to be precise. 
BOYS, this ones for you, read on if you dare…

We know you just ADORE us 24-7, 3-6-5 (yadda, yadda) AND true, you show us rarely daily! But if you want a girls advise, no matter what day of the year, if you’ve gone out of your way to show your hot piece of ***  angel just a lickle bit of un-begged-for love and attention, you will get tons of brownies and a peaceful life. 


Poor or poorer, it’s the little things. 
Bubble bath, candles on, dinner in the oven, what a man you’ve become!
 Pipe down, M&S dine in for 2 is £10 and a pack of 100 tea lights are a couple of quid. We know you spend at least a fiver a day on sugary treats, iTunes or bets at work (which you always lose, idiot) , so go with it!
Just remember that easy life I promised you…
Take her to the place you had your first date or somewhere with meaning. 
OMFGAHD what about building a den and stringing the place with fairy lights, play her favourite film and order a surprise take-away (her usual, from her favourite.)
Oh look at me I’m going all warm and fuzzy. 
Maybe I’m dehydrated.
Do you hear yourself right now? Pathetic. ‘What about me?’,  you say. I’m sure you’ll get something if you do well at this. If not, I’m sure you’ve always got some footy game to look forward too…
Swine. 
Stick your money where your mouth is: Lingerie (check her underwear drawer for sizes, do NOT get this drawer mixed up with her mums you giant perv. FYI, ASOS have plenty of affordable sets,click here  & holla at the Next Day Deliv!); Jewels (check if she’s a gold or silver gal first); Perfume (cough up boys, it’s Chanel all the way); Pictures (of you two, anything else would be, awks…); Flowers (just because it’s V day, you do not have to buy roses, try and find out which ones are her favourite.)
 CHOCOLATTTTTE (like, duhhhh.)
P.S. It’s cute that you occasionally listen to us, but now is not the timer for necessities. She does not need that box of tampons she was harping on to herself about, nor does she need a new set of biros. Think pretty. Think precious. 
Basically, BE.A.MAGPIE. 
Happy panic.
P.S. If all else fails, just buy her a puppy.
