A sweet little upgrade to an Easter Classic, the Hot Cross Bun!

March 14, 2017
I love walking into a shop or bakery and smelling the sweet spicy scent of Hot Cross Buns, it brings back great memories of my childhood but the only downside of them for me are the raisins and currents. Because Easter is only a month away I wanted to give my twist on the Classic Hot Cross Bun but filling them with chocolate chips instead all topped with a white chocolate cross!

With a sugary glaze, they are perfect fresh from the oven for all the family and to add some more calories to the mix, enjoy with a scoop of Vanilla ice cream - beautiful!

Lunch at the Long Dog, Aberdeen

March 12, 2017
One of the things I love about being a blogger is the other bloggers that you meet on the way and one of my favourites by far is Laura who writes, the Floral Elephant. She is a lovely genuine person and is extremely talented, I met Laura almost a year ago at a foodie event and I'm pretty sure we've been friends since then even though we didn't speak much at the actual event (typical people of the internet, we started speaking more online than in real life haha).

I love meeting up with Laura and finding out all about what she's been up to so we planned to have an afternoon mulling about Aberdeen together. We decided to head to the Long Dog cafe in Aberdeen's West End as we had both heard AMAZING things about their Freak Shakes and boy, we weren't disappointed! The Long Dog Cafe is a cute little place that is open to everyone with two legs and four, yes that's right you can take your pooch friends along with you and that's one of the fantastic things about it as you can just sit, catch up with your friends while starring at all the dogs in every size!

The thing with the Long Dog cafe is that it's so blooming popular, if you want a seat you've got to be quick but thankfully we managed to grab a table right next to a little white dog - so bloody cute!

After a little chinwag our food arrived, Laura opted for a panini and a bacon roll for myself. They were really good but it's not what we went there for - we were patiently waiting with baited breath for our Freak Shakes! I feel really sorry for the staff that have to wash the jars that have been used for the shakes as they get messy as hell!

Forget Supermarkets, Super Mums go to Pure Spa!

March 06, 2017
As cheesy as that sounds it is March which means Mother's Day is just round the corner and you should be thinking up ways to show your Mum just how special she really is (FYI you should be doing this all year round because at some point in your life she's probably washed your undies - you owe her). Instead of the same box of chocolates and corner shop flowers why don't you go that extra mile this year and I know the perfect thing to get her, a Super Mum Spa Package from Pure Spa!
