Now I'm sure we all have some (or a lot) of our own dream holiday destinations but thought I may as well share some of mine with you in case they're not on your list of places to visit! Some of these are places I have visited before, but when you visit a place and love it so much I think it's essential to re-visit.
1) Bora Bora
The colour of that sea just means I HAVE to visit!
2) The Maldives
Victoria from In The Frow's blog post and video sealed the deal for me on this one!
Who doesn't want to visit Santorini?!
4) Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove and Lyme Regis
Visited these 3 this Summer and I loved them! (picture is Durdle Door)
My cousin actually wants to live here when he is older so fingers crossed I can visit!!
What are some of your dream holiday destinations?!
If you've been reading my blog for a little while now you will know I am a massive baking fan, I just can't get enough of it! In fact I would just constantly bake if I could. Recently I picked up Cath Kidston's Teatime recipe book, had to be done as I am a huge fan of her brand, and decided I needed to make something from it! Well the first thing to be made is this recipe you are reading today - lemon and poppy seed cake.
This recipe is extremely easy and doesn't involve a lot of recipes at all!
For the cake:
125 ml of warm milk
2 tbsp of poppy seeds
Zest of 3 lemons, and the juice of 1
200g of unsalted butter
200g of caster sugar
3 beaten eggs
200g of self-raising flour
For the icing:
150g of icing sugar
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
Preheat your oven to 180° and line a 2lb loaf tin with greaseproof paper
In a small bowl mix together the warm milk and poppy seeds, then set aside.
In a large bowl cream together your butter and sugar, using a standing mixture or a lot of elbow grease! Gradually add in your egg, beating the mixture well after each addition.
Sift over the flour and carefully fold into your previous mixture until just incorporated. Then fold in your milk and poppy seeds, and your lemon juice and zest.
Pour the mixture into your tray and place into the oven to bake for 40-45 mins, until a skewer comes out completely clean.
Leave the cake to cool in the tin on a wire rack for a few minutes and then turn out onto the wire rack to cool completely.
To make the icing mix together you icing sugar and zest and juice from one lemon. You may need to add more juice or some water to get the right consistency.
I seriously think you all need to go out right now or order this cookbook online because it is one of the most beautiful and brilliant recipe books I've come across.
To highlight my cheekbones the Benefit's Watts Up Highlighter is gorgeous, to then set that I use the MUA eyeshadow in Pearl 1 (looks like Champagne on their website), which is a gorgeous light gold shade, this is also added to the inner corner of my eye.
