10 Favourites // March Edition

Sunday, 29 March 2015


Looking back over the last 30(1) days and deciding which have been the best bits to share with you has become one of my favourite things to do. After squashing my Jan/Feb Edition into one post, I've decided 5 things just isn't enough. Too many happy events happen in a whole month - 10 favourites it is!

March has been my best-loved month of 2015 so far. My motivation wasn't at it's highest in February but March has been a whole new ball game... I think it helped having a certain little ball of fluff bumbling around the house for a week… :)

The Betty Stamp Lifestyle Sticky Hot Cross bun recipe

Toasted, buttered and stuffed full of currants is how I enjoy my Easter hot cross bun. And what better way to make my (your) Thursday a happier one than to fill your kitchen with the scent of cinnamon and freshly baked buns!

Duck and Waffle London Restaurant Review The Betty Stamp

I'm quite a vocal eater - if I'm enjoying my food you will definitely know about it and I think every diner in The Duck and Waffle knew about it! I'm not quite sure how many times I said 'nom nom nom' or 'oh my god' with every succulent mouthful of the delectable cuisine that was placed in front of me, but it was verging on too many! It was the only conversation William could get out of me.

Chocolate Guinness Cake Recipe The Betty Stamp

Just like a puppy, a chocolate Guinness mud cake isn't just for  Christmas St Patrick's Day. I would happily devour the entirety of this dreamy cake on any occasion. A few friends and I road tested this devil of a cake last night accompanied by a great big dollop of vanilla bean ice cream…heaven on a plate.

If you love all things quintessentially British and you're familiar with the north of England, then you've most likely been well acquainted with Betty's Tearooms. I spent my weekend being thoroughly spoilt by William and his family in York and treated to the most beautiful afternoon tea, jam-packed full of clotted cream scones, (pronounced 's-gones' not 'sg-owns' as I'm a southern softy) mini macarons and generously stuffed sarnies.

Meet JANEMADE

Sunday, 1 March 2015


These incredible creations JaneMade breathes life into from just the nib of a pencil leave me flabbergasted every time. I find my eyes glued to the laptop screen for a good 5 minutes baffled by the detail and character she brings to her bespoke drawings. I've been very excited to write this post as Jane herself was kind enough to divulge a few secrets behind her intricate designs and how JaneMade came about.
