5 Favourites // November Edition

Saturday, 29 November 2014

The socks I am choosing each morning are getting thicker and thicker and the heating has been ramped up. Winter is officially here people! Christmas is only 26 more sleeps away!! Holy guacamole. I'M SO EXCITED ! So to end November on a bang, here are my 5 favourite things of this nippy month of November.

Indoor Lanterns The Betty Stamp1. WINTERY LANTERNS

Lanterns aren't just for the outdoors - scatter your front room with these twinkly beautys, turn off all the lights and sit back & unwind. Having candles as the only light source in a room gives such a cosy wintery feel to the house that only a Christmas tree can out-do! I found these gorgeous one's at Graham & Green.

Roasted Butternut Squash and Goats Cheese Lasagne The Betty Stamp

Holy guacamole. Not to blow my own trumpet.... (But I'm going to blow it anyway) This lasagne recipe is everything a veggie lasagne recipe should be. Belly warming, creamy yet herby wholesome grub which gives you that feeling of cosy happiness that makes you go mmm.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Cookies

White Chocolate and Raspberry Cheesecake Cookies The Betty Stamp

Have you tried The Hummingbird Bakery's  Black Bottom Cupcakes ? If so you'll know where I'm coming from when I say I think it's possibly the best cupcake I've ever put in my mouth! Cupcake + Cheesecake = Cupcake Heaven, so why not do the same with a cookie?!

DIY Vanilla Lip Scrub The Betty Stamp

I love Winter. Every single thing about it. Wearing 5 layers of knitwear so my body's a sauna but my face and toes are freezing regardless of how many pairs of socks I put on, the turning on of the Regent Street lights, stuffing my face with Currywurst at the fireworks, making tummy-warming homemade soups and taking bubble baths to warm my chilly toes. 

Piñacolada Breakfast Smoothie

Pinacolada Breakfast Smoothie The Betty Stamp

I woke up this morning craving some fruity brain food. The perfectly ripe pineapple in my fruit bowl was staring at me, so my initial thought was mmm pineapple juice. But after finding a coconut lime yogurt in my fridge, I couldn't resist throwing some creamy yumminess into the equation too.

Stocking Filler Ideas The Betty Stamp

In my opinion, the most important aspect of a home is that relaxing, feel good space where you can kick back and put the stresses and strains of life to the back of your mind for a few hours. For me that space is my kitchen.

Top 10 Winter Coats The Betty Stamp

As a general rule of thumb I dress for comfort, so what with winter finally deciding to grace us with it's presence, I will be well and truly in my element. Fur coats, bobble hats, mittens- you name it, I will be engulfed in it all. No nippy weather is breaking through my cosy barrier, no siree.

Edible Pumpkin Face Mask

Sunday, 2 November 2014

As Halloween draws to an end so does the remains of my Percy pumpkin. I have well and truly scrimped as many delicious dishes as I possibly can from Percy. So here's my final one, well, almost final, I decided to toast some Marmite Pumpkin Seeds also as an extra treat! My Edible Pumpkin Honey & Cinnamon Face Mask. Yum.

Thai Curried Pumpkin Soup

If you missed my Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies then give them a whirl for a delicious dessert after you've warmed your belly with this creamy concoction. Pumpkin, Honey & Cinnamon Edible Face Mask coming tomorrow! I think I'll need some face mask pampering after all this cooking!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

There's so many yummy things you can rustle up with one Pumpkin. It's like the turkey at christmas. SO many possibilities. I've decided to do Pumpkin 3 Ways - Pumpkin Choc Chip Cinnamon Cookies, Thai Curried Pumpkin Soup and a Pumpkin, Honey & Cinnamon Face Mask! The dessert should always come first, it would be rude not to, so let's start with the cookies (mainly because William's not here yet so I can have the cookie dough mixture bowl to myself :) )

Mmm •dribble•
