Friday Round Up

Links, loves and Instagrams from the last week.

Friday Round Up

1. Selfie time. 2. Caribbean cooking demo from Chef Lorenzo. 3. Rum cocktails

Favourite Outfits  – Amazing how much a signature piece can make you feel good. Red, polka dots, and a red lip? I need to dress like this more often. It makes me much happier than it should.

Birmingham Caribbean Festival – I went to the launch of Birmingham Caribbean Festival in the week, with Ryan of Brummie Gourmand. We were treated to rum cocktails, a range of incredible fish canapes by Le Monde, and two live cooking demonstrations. Chef Lorenzo spoiled us with Ackee & Saltfish, Jerk Chicken and Halloumi, then we were spoilt more by Kitchen Thyme, who provided two deserts of Passion Fruit Mess, Cococnut Icecream with rum caramel, and a Chocolate…something I cannot remember the name of. It was amazing. I am now super excited for the festival.

Currently watching: I watched Orange is the New Black all in one go and I have a lot of feelings about it. FEELS. Currently watching Dexter, which I have a lot less feelings about. It is good though.

Currently reading: Reader on The 6.27 and  feeling sophisticated because it’s a french translation.

On repeat:
