Throw back to that time when it was hot af, and we found this charming old countryside pub somewhere in West Sussex, surrounded by lush gardens and old men drinking ale...
It's been really rainy here today, and I've been glued to the computer for a whole day 😳 I think it's time to eat something...
What you up to this Saturday?

Flowers, cup of tea, and a slice of cake... does the girl needs anything else to be happy? I don't think so...🌸
I found these old postcards a little while ago in one of antique shops, and wanted to put them into some kind of use... I just adore the fancy, old fashioned writing at the back of them!
What do you think?

Who enjoyed all the lightning and thunders yesterday πŸ™‹πŸ»?
We've been watching (and hearing) them most of the evening, and I've even managed to capture couple of lightnings ⚑️⚑️ (check out my IG stories!)
Pictured above is my summer peach salad from a little while ago, and I'm going to be uploading the recipe to the website later this week. Stay tuned & have a great day folks!

Start your week right! With cake, that is!
How was your weekend guys? Mine didn't go fully as well as planned, but that's life πŸ˜‰
Today is another day, and today is also the day of the new blog post! There is a recipe for summer fruit cake and some rumbles about me taking it slowly... I have included link in my bio! ☝🏻
I hope you are having sweet day! X

Here's one of many pictures from yesterday's trip to lavender fields... Loved strolling around in that sea of purple, inhaling the scent, and listening to all the happy bees 🐝
Double tap of you're a fan of lavender ✌🏻
Have a lovely Sunday!

Early bird gets the worm... Waking up super early on Saturday has its perks, like today, when we went to visit lavender fields (check out my IG stories for more!). We left the house quite early, to beat the crowds, and oohhhhemmmgeee, how glad I was we did! When we got there, there was not a living soul in there, so I've had a chance to take some snaps of the fields in their full glory. By the time we were ready to leave, the place was heaving with people πŸ˜† So if you are planning to visit (and most importantly, take plenty of photos!), make sure to get there early!!! (Unless you like to spend hours doing edits in photoshop, removing people from your pictures πŸ˜‰).
This is my entry to 'Flat as a pancake-not', another daily challenge from @thelittleplantation
I must say, once you get into flatlays, it's kinda hard to move away from it πŸ™ˆ But I must remember that other angles are also there to be played with! Strawberries from one of the local farms nearby. Yum!
Have a great day!

Sweet smell of the weekend...and peaches...and strawberries πŸ˜‰
Happy Friday to all of you out there! What's your plans? I've got a road trip coming up hopefully tomorrow, and I can't wait 🌾🌻🌾
Happy Friday, whatever you do! X

With weekend on the horizon, the whole world looks better!
That, and a slice of cake. Strawberry cake, packed with juicy berries, topped with crunchy, sugary coating...
Who's up for a slice? 😏
Recipe will be on the blog (which I have totally neglected over the last few weeks, but all for a better case- summer!) later this weekend! Stay tuned! πŸ‘‹πŸ»

'Listen to the mustn'ts child.
Listen to the don'ts.
Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts.
Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child.
Anything can be."
Saw this on @saramelotti_ account few days ago, and it just stroked me. So many wonderful things in such a short sentence! I just had to share it, too good not to!
After visiting local farm and ending up with rather substantial amounts of berries, be prepared for some berry spam from me! πŸ™ˆπŸ“πŸ“πŸ“
I also thought that would be my take on 'The one and only' challenge number 5 from lovely @thelittleplantation ✨
How is your week going pals? Hope all ok!
Double tap if you love strawberries! X

We are enjoying truly beautiful summer, with all its fantastic produce and flowers...
Sunflowers are an essence of summer for me. And although, they are not your usual flower, they are one of my favourite 🌻🌻🌻
As kids, we used to cycle to nearby sunflower fields, during summer holidays, and find the sunflower of the size of your own head or ideally twice as big, and spend hours and hours picking and eating the seeds...
And back then, that seemed to be one of the trendiest activities... I'm thinking of bringing it back... 😎 what do you think?
Hope your week started on a happy note! πŸ‘‹πŸ»

So I've finally managed to participate in Kimberly's @thelittleplantation Instagram challenge, and after missing a couple of them already, this is my take on 'let's go outside' 🌾🌾🌾
Beautiful countryside fields on my doorstep, during a sunset few days ago...
I've not been taking any food pictures for a couple of weeks now, and it feels good to have this break and take things slowly, and enjoy the food for what it is, and cook just for the fun of cooking, and not picture taking...
I've started this account, because I love taking pictures of my food, like many of you out there. But recently, I've been feeling like that fun element evaporated somewhere, hence a little break, to restore and recharge...
Hope you guys don't mind me being just a bit quiet over here, but you know, sometimes you just gotta do what feels right, and being quiet feels right at the moment.
Sending you all hugs and wishing you an awesome weekend! I'm planning on visiting some lavender fields in the area, and hopefully, taking few pictures while there πŸ˜‰ what are your plans? X

Sunny days deserve sunny treats... like this peach tart!
Thanks for all the love and messages, you guys rock! I will be catching up on the comments later today, as I'm just getting ready for work (😭)... I've been feeling really apathetic and 'meh' lately, and nothing seems to be helping, I guess I just need to snap out of it, and get my act together! Will be working on that over the next few days...
Have a great, sunny day! Looks like it's going to be a hot one!!!! πŸ”₯
