Do-Nut Eat My Doughnut!

5 Mar

Check out these fellas!

 

Whenever I visit Camden, this marvelous doughnut stall located at one of the various market entrances, always catches my eye, and up until recently I’ve managed to successfully resist their sweet siren calls to me… This time, however, I gave in. When picking a doughnut (which are absolutely huge by the way, and consist of many exciting, innovative flavours and fillings) I thought:

‘To hell with it. I’m buying a doughnut for God’s sakes- what’s the use in trying to scrimp? No, I’ve got to pick something really dirty.’

So, evidently, that’s what I did. Let me introduce you, ladies and gentleman, to my ‘Triple Killer Chocolate Doughnut with Chocolate Filling’!

 

 

Ah, I think I just died… In fact, that’s practically what did happen when I ate the doughnut, as I was convinced I could eat the whole thing in one sitting (again, please take note that these doughy treats are just a tad larger in size than your usual, everyday doughnut; and moreover, this was three times more sweet than my poor, unsuspecting stomach could take, thank you very much!).

In all fairness, I suppose I was warned by the title… The ‘Killer’ part, obviously.

In addition, a friend of mine decided to test the waters on the Camden Churros situation. These churros, in contrast to the traditional Spanish churros which are served longer, thinner and with a pot of hot, melted chocolate for dipping, are served instead with a rich chocolate filling piped through the middle.

I’m so tempted to use the word ‘groovy’ at this point, but I understand that that would be incredibly weird, perhaps a little nerdy, and uncomfortable for all of us.

Anyway, my friend’s verdict sounded a little like this: ‘I could probably live on this monster alone for two days and still not be near finishing it- good stuff!‘ Waters safely tested!

Finally, I’ve just activated my Pinterest account! I had heard horror stories of waiting lists and the impossibility of receiving an invite once requested; however, in my case it thankfully seemed to be an easy enough process, and now I’m a member! Having said that, I don’t entirely know how to use it yet, and I haven’t started ‘pinning’ (Haha, that sounds funny… *Cough* Ok, I’m obviously too immature to be writing blogs on WordPress) anything yet, but when I do you’ll know about it!

Happy blogging y’all!

Flippin’ Heck!

22 Feb

Whoa, whoa- wait. It was Pancake Day?!

I’m just kidding, I know that Pancake Day has in fact been and gone, but I need some kind of excuse to post about my pancakes a day late, right?

For me, when it comes to pancakes I follow no strict recipe or rules. I don’t even measure my ingredients. The only thing I need to know is that there had better be some flour, eggs and milk in there somewhere, and that’s it.

God, I feel rustic

Topping-wise, I’m just as simple: sugar and lemon. Come on, sugar and lemon! You can’t beat it, really. Yes, when I hear about the nutella and banana, the cinnamon, butter and honey of other people’s pancakes, my stomach literally flips (haha, pancake pun there… Because you flip a pancake right? Ok, time to stop) on itself with excitement and craving.

But if I’m honest, I’m a traditional gal and I love the pure traditionalism and downright beautiful simplicity of a lemon-soaked, sugar-dusted, pancake.

Just look at the sugary, lemony goodness!

 In other news, I’ve just bought these Gypsy-style hoops, £7 from Accessorize and love them! The only down-side is that they’ve been designed as backless (so they aren’t full hoops) and the ends have been persistently catching on my hair and clothes!

Another recent buy of mine is this Barry M nail varnish in Raspberry, £2.99. I had been searching for the perfect plum/berry colour for a while until I came across this. It’s perfect and exactly what I was looking for- I literally cannot fault it! I’m even considering buying a matching lipstick…

I feel like these latest buys have been leading me in the direction of a specific image-overhaul that I probably would have never considered before… Maybe it is my time to go chola. I mean, if you’ve seen Lil’ Loca on Youtube, then you would understand why I’m fine with this- I would love to be her. Bandanas, attitude and a very creative yet questionable use of lip-liner… Ok, ok perhaps not.

Maybe the time for an image-overhaul is nigh, but not just yet! I’ll rock the hoops for a while and see how I get on.

Finally, Lana Del Rey won a Brit Award last night! I feel so proud (strange, seeing as I obviously have no reason or right to)! And congratulations, of course, to Adele and the other artists who won awards last night.

Well, that’s all for now folks. Happy blogging!
