My name is Cait and I'm addicted to cookery books! If my home were ablaze and my dearest were safe I would save my books, not my clothes. Its got to the point where I no long have space store them and they are just stacked up on the floor next to the bookshelves. Right now British Baking by Oliver Peyton is my favourite.
Issue 6 of Cellardoor is hot off the press! If you like the look of these Spring treats you can find the recipes on pages 84 - 87 alongside my previously mentioned cocktail recipe. I have since decided to name the naughty rose tea cocktail a 'Mitford Sister', after my favourite Wayward Daughters.
I've been introducing some pastels into my life, a blouse covered in cute ponies and toadstools, pale pink brogues, pastel nail varnish and treats from Rose & Co.
I'm fast developing an addiction to Prestat Rose and Violet Cremes. They are so beautifully packaged and taste blissful! Like an English country garden in Summer. They even made an Easter Egg, which I devoured too quickly to take any pictures...Oops!
The great sandal search is on. I always start early because I'm picky as can be when it comes to sandals but these Le Comptoir Scandinave sandals from Spartoo have already caught my eye.
In keeping with the Best of British theme, I asked my dear friend (Queen of mixtapes) Fifi of Kiss on The Lips to put a mix together. She went all out and I adore the finished result. I've been listening to it all week, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. You should head over to her blog because I have it on good authority that her debut lookbook will be published presently.
