lifestyle & loves – hot chocolate recipe

9th April 2014
So you may or may not have noticed a sharp fall in blog post frequency this last week, well for those who don’t follow my endless Tweets, Ali and I exchanged contracts on our new home to complete on the 16th April.  Needless to say shopping has gone through the roof and my bedroom currently looks like a John Lewis bomb went off. It’s easy to get caught up in the lists of things we need to buy (I mean I need a set of Vera Wang Champagne glasses don’t I?), luckily my Grandma has always been a keen interior decorator so I’ve dusted off her books, reactivated my Pinterest and spent many evenings soaking up the inspiration whilst indulging in a new style of post workout PhD shake. Hot Chocolate! But no I can’t take the credit, I was tweeted the idea a few weeks back and it has been keeping me sane ever since and it really is so simple. Ingredients: 1/2-1 Scoop of PhD Woman Support & Recovery Shake in Chocolate Cookie 2 (or more if you like it rich) Unsweetened Green & Blacks Cocoa Powder 8floz Unsweetened Almond Milk 1-2tbsp Agave Honey (optional) Place on low heat until tiny bubbles start to appear around the edges and it lightly starts to simmer, make sure its warm enough and remove from the heat. Pour into your “Happy Place” mug and enjoy!

There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad weather attire 💧
A little indulgence from my comfort of my own home thanks to INCREDIBLE @kmp_skin and @freshbeauty Ad 
for the launch of the new Lotus Youth Preserve Resurfacing dream serum which is a gentle AHA serum with prickly pear flower extract said to boost radiance and it was so lovely to be treated to a first trial to get a very first impression of the serum thanks to KMP and her magic hands. I’ve literally never had a facial like it!
The plum tree in our garden is always the first blossom to erupt at this time of year narrowly beating the much loved aubretia that grows in abundance through our old garden wall. As soon as is acceptable I’m out with my secateurs ready to fill vases and prickly jars with its delicate confetti like blooms 🌸
Februarys carpet of Crocus blooms is always quite the spectacle. I find these little cheerful perennial flowers popping up in the most unlikely of places and what’s special is how they naturalise and multiply each year to create a carpet of flowers ready for the early Winter-Spring bees 🌱
Winter Spring views.
Primrose & Snowdrops are on their way!
February is a very special month, it almost feels like the build up before the crescendo of spring and I can’t help but feel a flutter in my chest at the thought of what’s to come 🌱
