Afternoon Tea The Black Swan Helmsley The Betty Stamp

Oh what a beautiful mooooorning, oh what a beautiful daaaay!

I feel like we picked this day perfectly as the final beams of Summer sun shined their shine on us in Helmsley this weekend. What a cheery little market town! Rivers, pubs, old fashioned sweet shops - that sort of vibe, ie - right up my street :)

Oliver Bonas Kitchen Wish list The Betty Stamp

IF I won the lottery (which would never happen because I don't even play...sooo lets say instead if a money tree grew in my garden...more likely), firstly I would build at least one gigantic window in my kitchen so that I wouldn't have to take all my bakes outside to photograph(!) and secondly, I would buy the entirety of the Oliver Bonas home section and KIT. MY. KITCHEN. OUT!

I've often left slobber on their windows so I must firstly apologise for that.

I wish I had smellyvision so that I could send through the blissful cinnamon scented cloud that's wafting through my kitchen right now. 

Sunday Fitness Fix #4

Sunday, 28 August 2016


After our trip to Krakow where I ate like a baby elephant, I've been on a bit of an exercise kick. I think I've made peace with the fact that I just cannot diet, it's physically impossible for me to look at cake and not eat it's entirety. So there's no point in even trying anymore. I will just gym more, EAT CAKE and be merry.

I've been getting some really encouraging responses from you guys on my 3 other Fitness Fix posts, so I'm hoping they're coming in handy to some of you and you might be trying out some of the workouts, even if it's just taking tit bits of exercise ideas. It's like having workout buddies across the internet!

But alas, it all sort of went tits up...

A Wedding Weekend in Krakow

Wedding Krakow The Betty Stamp

What a weekend! 

Krakow is hands down one of the most beautiful cities I've ever visited. What a gem of a place. The sun was beaming and the main square was constantly buzzing with locals and visitors sprawled out onto the pavements in cafes and restaurants, supping cocktails and wiping plates clean of Polish stew.
