Autumn/Winter Wish list

Hello Everyone
Today i thought id share with you my small wish list

Now that it's now Autumn/Winter  has arrived in Scotland i have had a look through my wardrobe and thought i'd update my wardrobe with a few non essential pieces.


First id like to buy this lovely two in one dress from Axparis.com
priced at £30 i definitely think id get a lot of use from it.
The lovely flower printed dress is perfect for nights out or dressed down for day time.


Next up a black coat
 while in Newlook the other week i spotted this and tried it on, i think this simple black coat from new look would be a perfect addition to my wardrobe at the time i put it back and thought i didn't really need it but now thinking about how i needed a smarter black coat i will be looking for it on the next shopping trip i go on. The jacket it's practical to go with a lot of winter outfits though it may not keep me warm or dry.




While on River island website i had a browse through the handbags and came across this lovely diamond patchwork bag.
The bag would be handy to take to and from work
As the Bag is Priced at £47 i may wait to see if it's on sale before buying it.
Id also like a new pair of dark sunglasses not sure how much use i'd get in winter apart from my january trip abroad although it's always handy to keep a pair in my handbag.
These ones are by prada at the Sunglass hut for £190
  As i am so fussy with sunglasses i think i'd need to go to a shop and try a few pairs.
Sunglasses are one of the things i like to pay a bit more for as i feel it's really important to take care of your eyes plus they generally last a while to.

Another thing id like to buy is a new pair of cosy winter boot slippers
I like these ones from River island for £20 but i am unsure what colour they really are as the description says pink,ideally world i'd buy these in gray or navy.
its also the type of thing if i bought myself i'd end up with 5 pairs for christmas.




What do you think of my wishlist ? Are you looking forward to warm clothing ?

Cake Recipe Tuesday

Hello Everyone

Today i thought id share one of my family recipes
Yogurt loaf.
When i was younger my great gran used to bake this for us most sundays.
Yogurt loaf was also one of the first recipes i tried to make when i was younger.
Yogurt loaf is super quick and easy to make and requires little items and makes such a nice tasty loaf. perfect for a late afternoon snack or with a cuppa.

What you need
1  small tub yogurt ( any kind i used strawberry) you use the  yogurt carton for the measurements
Oil -   1 carton full
Sugar- 1 and a half cartons
Self raising flour- 3 cartons
2 eggs
A loaf tin
A spoon
Mixing bowl
Apron ( optional)





Take all the ingredients and mix them together until smooth and then add to your tin and place in the oven.
(i also put a liner in my cake tin and greased it to avoid it sticking.)


I cooked mine on a fan oven at 160 for 55 minutes
The original recipe says gas mark 3 for a hour but my oven isn't gas so i don't know about this
Best to just keep a eye on it like any recipe 
Allow to cool for 10 to 15 minutes before cutting
I had cut mine while it was to hot so it crumbled a bit.

I like to eat it plain but you could always add icing or some nice jam and fresh strawberries.
Served on some nice Emma Bridgewater pottery !



Let me know if you try out my Family yogurt loaf it's so simple.

Whats inside my Handbag


Hello Everyone
Having seen quite a few of these posts recently
I thought id share what i carry around inside my handbag.
Since i work in a shop i do not carry around my good handbags since they don't fit in lockers at work and i wouldn't want anything to happen to them.
So by the time the weekend comes or my day off i like to use one of my good bags.
My Micheal Kors bag is like one Mary Poppins would have it has so much space its hard for me not to fill it with unnecessary items.

My handbag contains
-Sunglasses not really essential for the uk weather but handy to have
- Make up bag ( i also have tissues and hand sanitizer in here)
-Hair brush of some sort
-Key
  -Purse
   -  Phone
   - Gum
  -  Sometimes my camera
     -Spare tights( the dog can have sharp nails)

                                                                      Anything you think i am missing ?



 So that's mostly everything give or take as i am always switching around my bags and end up leaving things in my other bags. My mum had bought me of those handbag organisers which was useful for moving things from bag to bag but my larger items unfortunately don't quite fit in it.
Also since buying a car i keep items like a shopper bag and umbrella in the car.

Please not my handbags are not always this tidy

Thanks for reading
