What kind of buildings float your boat?

Today I took a trip to beautiful Salisbury with my best girl. It was a work trip to restock a gallery I supply there, the Gallery at Fisherton Mill, but that doesn't mean I couldn't do lunch and a little sightseeing! After visiting the lovely peeps at Fisherton, Miss Amanda and I had a look around the famous Salisbury Cathedral. I love the architecture of religious buildings and took a couple of iPhone snaps to show you the serene cloisters and dramatic gothic arches of this medieval masterpiece... oh and one of me looking like a tourist.

Yesterday was a meet day for me, I had a great day chatting to some lovely people who own independent businesses in Bath. I am so excited that people are liking my designs, it is really encouraging and I feel positive about getting my jewellery seen by more people this summer. Whilst in town I paid a visit to one of my pals who works in Cafe Luca, a bright airy cafe inside The Loft home-ware and fashion store. Situated at the top of town surrounded by all the Georgian architecture you can't help but feel good whilst sipping a well made coffee (I'm not a big coffee drinker, but occasionally it is called for). The tables are even adorned with fresh flowers which are sold in the store, so pretty.
Oh, and if you haven't noticed I am also now obsessed with the new app by A Beautiful Mess, it's one I was actually happy to pay for!
Have a great weekend friends xx

I had a load of mushrooms that were just about to turn in the cupboard so in order that they didn't go to waste I made this super quick, super simple and super tasty light lunch. I will certainly be making it again as it was not only delicious but proper healthy and low fat, bargain!
100g sliced mushrooms (I had a mix of chestnut and shitake)
1.5 tsp vegetable stock powder
2 tbs natural yogurt
splash of water
tsp chopped chives
In a hot non-stick pan dry fry the sliced mushrooms for around 4 mins, or until they start to brown. Sprinkle the stock powder over the mushrooms and stir so that they are evenly covered. Add the water to the pan (this will steam the mushrooms and help them soak up the stock powder), when the water has almost evaporated away remove from the heat. Stir in the yogurt and chives and serve immediately. I served mine on toast but this would equally as well as a side to a chicken or steak dish.

Good morning sweet things, good weekend? It has been and continues to be wet and cold here so today I am dreaming of summer treats, feathers and lace and all things pretty. Must be all the Gatsby chat that I am hearing, have you seen it yet? Is it worth a trip?
