It’s a tad odd that I started a Friday fashion post as fashion isn’t really my thing. You can see the first ever FF post here.
I think this will be my last FF post, if you’re a fashion fan then I do apologise, but fear not I’m sure the odd fashion post will sneak it’s way in every now & again!
I’ve decided to do something more ‘me’ as my regular Friday post, so, starting next week will be ‘Foodie Friday’… recipes, photographs, drawings & whatever takes my fancy! See you next Friday! x

Oh the humble maxi dress. How I love thee.
When you wear a maxi you KNOW it’s summer!

Oh yes… I now own these adorable Cath Kidston
plimsolls… I ❤ them!
I do absolutely love florals! I’m really looking forward to some sunny weather so that I can get out my flowery maxi dresses & skirts… A girl can daydream! It’s raining here now again… I’m off to cook dinner. Have a great weekend! xoxox

This weeks Friday Fashion is all about jewellery… absolutely adore the last ring… amazing! Jewellery is all I can think about right now. I’ve made earrings all week & am now having to design 4 necklaces… 1 wedding necklace & 3 gifts that all have to be person-specific. Totally failing to do what I promised myself here
I still haven’t bought a new battery for my camera but pix of the earrings will be here soon I promise!
I’m baking lasagne tonight for Drummer Boy & his daughter, Alia, which always goes down a treat… My version is dead simple, I make my own sauce but cheat on the white sauce step! You need…
onions (or spring onions)
mushrooms (sssshhhhh, don’t tell Alia!)
dried herbs – oregano, ‘italian seasoning’
Method: *Fry off chopped garlic & onion is vegetable oil (or sunflower or olive oil), add mince beef & brown. *Pour in tomato passata, add fresh basil & dried herbs, simmer… *Add roughly chopped streaky bacon… *Add sliced peppers & mushrooms… *Allow to simmer & thicken & add a good glug of worcester sauce. *Once meat sauce is ready spoon a layer into the bottom of an oven dish… layer over with lasagne sheets… *next spoon over a layer of creme fraiche & top with grated parmesan… *repeat until everything is used up then finish off with a top layer of grated cheddar & parmesan… *pop in the oven for roughly an hour et voila! Scrummy lasagne!

How awesome are these tees? All from Common Threadz
, each tee is one of a print run of 250 so you’re pretty unlikely to see anyone else wearing one! Most of the tees are about $38/£23.50 & each tee you buy pays for school uniform for an orphaned child in Africa. Definitely worth checking out… I want this one…
I’ve mentioned these guys before here when I signed up for Isis’ Ethical Clothing Pledge which is a fantastic idea but which I most definitely have failed on in the last year! To be fair to me I think as much as many of us would like to be greener on an every day level on the British high street it’s really quite hard! One thing I am very good at though is recycling my clothes when I have bought new stuff.. I dish them out to friends & bag them up & take them to the charity shops so at least I don’t have items languishing at the bottom of my wardrobe!
And you can get your mitts on any of these if you pop over to Bleubird Vintage… if I was skinnier the rainbow patchwork skirt would be mine… I love it! Now that my shopping urge has been satisfied without actually spending a penny I’m off to get ready for work… Hope you all have a lovely start to your weekend xox

All these awesome tees are courtesy of these Etsy shops… NYILLUSTRATION, TheBoldBanana, Em&Sprout and last but not least, Rocky The Zombie who are based in Southsea, Hampshire. I quite fancy the moustache one… xox

OK so it’s confession time. I’m sitting in bed in my pajamas with an absolutely horrendous hangover eating chocolate spread sandwiches*. Yesterday I went to work, planned to come home, play with my (new ~ no.24 on my Before I’m 33 Wishlist!) camera, do a lovely blog post… instead I got sidetracked by my friend Helen and a couple of bottles of wine. Hence Friday Fashion is a day late & is about one of the greatest comfort items ever… the humble beanie! Enjoy x
(*I’m incredibly grown up & posh though so we’re talking Nutella & poppy seed bread!)
