A Few Good things // 001

...a regular round up of lovely stuff

LOVING Happy Valentine's to you! I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday? We've been so crazy busy recently and the weather has been just horrid so we treated ourselves to a cosy night in with good food and drink, you know how we do. Our anniversary (6 years & counting) is so close to Valentine's Day that we celebrate the two together, so forgive us getting in to the spirit! Will got me a beautiful bouquet and these gorgeous earrings from Just Trade who specialise in Fair Trade jewellery.

EATING Friska kindly offered me a sample of their delicious porridge to celebrate their new recipe. Friska are a lovely independent cafe chain with four locations across Bristol. Their coffee is great but their food really is something special, I highly recommend! The porridge was the perfect cosy treat for a rainy Friday morning and if you can't decide between the fruit compote or praline topping I suggest you try both like I did!

If my favourite comfort foods got together and had a big old carb fuelled fight Spaghetti Carbonara may well come out on top. On Thursday evening I gave the Carbonara I cooked a little extra something something by adding rosemary when frying the bacon.


Joy The Baker is moving to New Orleans and I just loved reading her post about it. New Orleans is my number one dream holiday destination - the music! the food! It's going to be great reading about Joy's experiences there and I will be bookmarking for the future for when I do make that trip one day (preferably at Mardi Gras time!)

I must find some time over the weekend to have a go doing this lovely chain braid on my hair, which  I saw over at A Beautiful Mess.

If you read this previous post of mine then you'll already know I'm a fan of Orla Keily. I'm certainly not alone, but this time it is a collaboration with Clarks that has set mine and fellow bloggers hearts a flutter. Check out these post from Tigerlilly Quinn and She & Hem and see the full range here. Oh and I just love this very Wes Andrson promo video for the SS14 collection...

What has caught your eye this week online or in real life?
