Farnham Foods: Caracoli

Caracoli is a relatively new addition to Farnham (well I say new, it's been a good year) and can be found in the cobbled Lion and Lamb Yard. It's the perfect place for it. Its a coffee shop that has that quaint, homemade kind of character, but still feels very modern. The Farnham branch is one of four, and it has its own independent personality, creating a welcome change from the national chains that do the job, but are pretty samey.  

 It's small so has that busy buzzing atmosphere that all coffee shop fans know and love, but it's size stops this from being overpowering - it feels welcoming and friendly. I visited on a freezing cold day, and it provided a snug place to shelter. It has a small courtyard outside which will be great come summer.

Home Made Hummus and 'A Girl Called Jack' Book Review.

Hummus is a great thing to have in your fridge, it's a brilliant snack, can be incorporated into meals, and its super healthy and full of protein. I've used it for open sandwiches, cheese and hummus toasties, and jacket potato fillings and that's only scratching the surface. In the shops, I also find it crazily expensive! But fear not my friends, you can make it really really easily, and at a fraction of the price. Using just garlic, chickpeas, lemon and some herbs my hummus came in at well under £1 for a very generous amount.

15 Eats for a Veggie Christmas Feast

Despite being a vegetarian, I love roast dinners. Even when I was a wee child, and still ate meat, meat was never the main part for me. I've always loved all the other goodies and find that there's more than enough to fill me up. It is good to make sure that you still get some protein though, and while you can quickly solve this with some veggie sausages, there are loads of much tastier, and non processed, healthier alternatives that you can feast on this Christmas, and every Sunday (or any other day) to come.

I've searched the internet far and wide, and compiled a list of  fifteen tasty looking veggie mains to complement a good old roast. Some are vegan friendly too. I'm keen to give these all a try, but can't quite squeeze them all in before Christmas! I'll be sure to report back on my cooking endeavors though, and if you give any a go- let me know what you think!

Lord of the Rings/Hobbit Nail Art

It's that time of year again. The time of year when I get far too excited about the new Hobbit film, and have to share this with the world via my nails.

Christmas Cosmetics: Snow Fairy Shower Gel

My love of Lush is no secret, and neither is my love of Christmas, so it probably doesn't surprise you in the slightest to hear that I'm a fan of Lush's Christmas range. Snow Fairy Shower Gel is my absolute favorite. It's bright pink and slightly sparkly but don't rule it off a girly product - it's the shower gel my boyfriend steals the most. Lets have gender equality in the cosmetics world people.
(and the rest of the world too please)
