Vegetable Pancakes

Having the mentality of a toddler, pancake day is one of the most exciting days of the year for me and the variations of types is beyond exciting. This year I discovered a new type; the vegetable pancake, whilst having dinner at a friends house. Initially, I was rather unsure about this combination, however, I must say this has rapidly become one of my favourite dishes and is perfect for a pancake day lunch or dinner. The pancake contains a selection of vegetables of your choice - my preference is carrots, broccoli and green beans - topped with passata sauce and mozzarella cheese.

To make the pancakes (I usually get 4/5 pancakes out of this mix) :
Mix -
250g flour
250g milk
250g water
2 eggs
Heat a frying pan with a little oil/butter until it begins to steam. Pour the batter onto the frying pan and allow to cook for a few minutes before flipping (you don't want to allow the pancakes to brown too much as you will cook these again later on)

Fill the pancakes with cooked vegetables of your choice and roll them up. Place these into a casserole dish or baking tray (you do not need to grease this), top with passata sauce and mozzarella cheese, then cook in the oven at 180 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Once cooked, allow to cool before eating - they will be very hot! Enjoy!!

Tartan Shift Dress

Dress and Coat - Zara
Bag - Topshop
Shoes - Boohoo

5 months on and this dress still remains my favorite garment in my wardrobe. I simply adore it. It's simply so easy to wear all year round and for any occasion; with brogues, a jumper over the top or dressed up with a pair of heels. It's just perfect! I wore this outfit the other day on a venture around London with a friend; Chelsea (the BEST Zara ever. oh my), Chinatown (still in awe at that food), Oxford Street and Carnaby Street. 

P.S. People in Chelsea actually have maids. Like proper, fully dressed maids. (see picture 3)

Sun, Moon and Stars

Dress - Motel Rocks via ASOS
Necklace and Scrunchie - Urban Outfitters
Boots - Boohoo

This is an outfit which i wore on Friday night to go see To Kill A King with some friends. They're a great little band - think Tom Odell backing with The Maccabees' voice, basically perfection! This dress makes me severely long for summer, especially the back detailing (anything with a back detailing will captivate me instantly to be honest) and the print is something i love also. It will be perfect paired simply with chunky white sandals or brogues. 4 months.

Here's a few photos of the evening -

Jumper and Boyfriend Jeans

Jumper & Jeans - Topshop
Bag, Shoes, Socks & Necklace - Urban Outfitters

3 days back into Sixth Form and i'm back to hating life once again. The constant exhaustion and workload has returned, please can we just skip to Summer now! 
Anyway, basically this outfit compiles some of my post-christmas sale purchases i adore. The Topshop jumper is perhaps the most softest and comfiest thing i have ever worn - i just want to stay snuggled in it constantly. And the shoes just make me feel like i'm wearing my tap shoes and so i walk around the house tapping continually, any shoe which does this will immediately make me happy. Even if they far too greatly resemble my school shoes.
