L³ Thursdays: Link-Loves and Life

June 13, 2013


Oi oi, first time doing one of these posts. It’s about time too eh 😉 (the above photo has no relevance to anything apart from the fact it’s of London..)


  • I won something! (I never win things hahah) I won the instagram competition for a weekend pass to the Food Blogger Conference in July, here in London! Holla at me if you’re going too, woooooh!!
  • I have a new flavour combination obsession for my toast: nutella with loganberry jam (also good with raspberry jam). Oh my gahd. So perfect. I will eat that for dessert thanks.
  • I went shopping for bikinis TWICE and found NADA. They were all ugly or super small. But I found this one at Monki and it’s perrrrfect! (I’m also in love with Monki now, they have such reasonable prices and some reallllly nice clothes)
  • Have you been watching Made in Chelsea? I TOTALLY have. Why Lucy, why are you going out with Spencerrr???? (I also recently saw Proudlock on my tube – see below – and Stevie when I was running in Putney, hahah)
  • proudlock
  • This week, I took the train down to Exeter to visit my bro, and see the Uni campus there – it was pretty hilly but I did enjoy it a lot, espesh because my brother was able to show me around town a bit. Then we made some tagliatelle, and foraged some wild garlic and leeks to make pesto for the pasta. So yum!

    Monki looks like a fun store-wish we had some in the USA!

      I bought a skirt from Monki a while ago, then forgot all about them until now! So glad I remembered 🙂

    Congrats on the win!! That’s so exciting! I’ll be visiting London for the first time in September so sadly I’ll be missing the conference but YAY to finally seeing London! I can’t wait! I love these link sharing posts! My husband and I write them every Friday.

    That bikini is BEAUTIFUL. Love all the colors.

    I’ve been cheering on Beth too! She is so darling…

    Gosh, don’t even get me started on that peanut butter chunk ice cream. I basically want to inhale everything Ashley makes.

      Thanks Jade! Oooh! Well I’m sure you’ll have a brilliant time, London is tha bestt (I might be a bit biased…)
      I’m so happy I found that bikini, I was beginning to have a panic moment where I thought I’d have to give up and just buy a plain black one! and tell me about it, Beth and Ashley are both amazing ladies 🙂

    Yeah! Congrats on winning the instagram competition!! (I never win things either. I remember there was this one time that my parents won a butcher block table on wheels that was being raffled off at my gymnastics meet when I was like, ten. They didn’t have anywhere to put it, so they decided to give it to my grandma, and then I my brother and I had to spend the entire day putting it together. Yay?)

    And oh man, brown sugar cinnamon peanut butter………..ahhh!! I went through an open-faced peanut butter sandwich phase when I was little. That peanut butter on an english muffin might cause a relapse.

    Those frozen chunks of peanut butter in Ashley’s ice cream blew my mind!! Our weather went back to cold and rainy, but I think it’s starting to warm back up again. (Which is good, because back when it was super hot, I started making a list of all the crazy ice creams that I want to make this summer. Current top fav idea: labneh ice cream with a whole lot of blueberry swirls and bits of lemon pound cake….)

    (And thank for the shout out!! :D)

      Thanks Carey! hahaha sounds like, um, a fun prize!
      Gahhh I know, I always end up putting cinnamon and honey with pb on toast, but mixing in sugar and cinnamon is just so much easier!
      Oh my god, that is making my mind cry, I effing love lemon cake, I think I will be stalking your blog a lot until that recipe appears….
