I don't know about you guys but when I think of tea cakes in general I seem to envision a gathering of high society ladies, chattering away by an antique mahogany dining table laden with high tea delicacies. I solely blame Hollywood and the BBC for this terribly outdated view and for my outlandish snobbery. So I'm not entirely sure why I went down the tea cake path the other day. Was it the pretty picture or was it through sheer laziness? Most probably the latter since the ease and transparency that this recipe seemingly provided, completely reassuring my lackadaisical demeanour was what won me over within moments.
Quick and easy; enough said.

The seasons are definitely a-changing. And I'm not quite ready to part ways with our winter just yet. Then again I never am. And the influx of wintery goodness seeping into online stores certainly does not help my winter woes. In particular Isabel Marant's new range of plaids, sequins and wooly everythings. So many pieces are just calling my name, begging me to come snuggle with them and oh how I want to indulge in their fantasies. I mean that Milroy coat virtually has my name written all over it, pleading me to tour with him. New York perhaps or Paris, first class accompanied with Louis and copious amounts of naughty champagne.
What are your thoughts on these new season trends? Loving or loathing anything? Speak now or forever hold your peace.
