The Weekly Roundup #05 & #06

I forgot to do my weekly diary last week… life gets out of hands and mind sometimes. These past weeks, it has been raining so much in England that floods are destroying villages and cities around the country, and around the world too. Lots of people lose their home, their safety, their nest. We always take our home for granted, don't we? Help by giving, if you can.

Roses are red. Duh.

The Week in LRB Posts: Healthy Leek, Fennel & Pear Soup // Refreshing Blood Orange Sorbet // Brie my Valentine?

Foodie Outing of the Week: I have been out and about to a few ressies in the last weeks, but the only one worth mentioning is Tanner & Co. on Bermondsey Street. On the menu is meat and more meat. Sometimes, that's all a girl needs. We share a platter of charcuterie and pates for starter, then moved onto the beef. The staff is also super friendly. And their cocktails are pretty awesome too.

Product of the Week: I'm all over a red lip lately. Orangey-red are the best, especially the Nars velvet matte lip pencil in Red Square, best I've ever tried. And I've tried a lot!

Foddie Blog of the Week: I have been pouring all over the Top with Cinnamon blog written by the delightful Izy, a very passionate and creative lil teenager who bakes and is writing a cook book as well. Swoon. I love reading her blog so much, and not just because the food is unbelievably gorge, but because she seems to be such an empowered and confident teen that it makes me all happy and soft inside. Lately, we hear so much about kids and bullying, or teens that are full of angst, that we start to think all kids have it bad these days. But then I see the positive and creative environment some young peeps make for themselves, and I can't help but feel really impressed. Thumbs up (or bottoms up as she just turned 18!).

Must-Watch of the Week: House of Cards season 2 has just released on Netflix. Well this will have me and the hubby glued to the TV for a little while...

Added to the Wish-List this Week: I am constantly on the lookout for new and exciting crockery; mismatched, vintage, out-of-the-ordinary. Especially pastels colours. Must be spring calling my name.
