London Cammuter #8 – 6pm and it looks like 2pm

20140415_173855

This is a photo of some expensive apartments near my work place in London. I was heading to the station the other day and thought “it’s 6pm already and yet it looks like 2pm in the afternoon”. Other than the sun and warm weather of the spring and summer, the other most amazing part of UK summer is having really long days. It’s bright till 9-10pm for most of the summer months and 7-9pm for the months around the summer period. I feel so much more active and feel that I can do much more after work.

That’s practically free shipping as £20 isn’t much and one can easily spend that amount on a store […]

Flavourly Box – Feburary 2014

Essencious-Flavourly-February-2014-Box

My boyfriend and I received our first Flavourly box a few weeks ago. We were really looking forward to trying out new food. Here’s the products we received in our February 2014 box and what we thought of each one. Beer Bread by Barrett’s Bridge (in olive and Rosemary) We were pleasantly surprised by this product as we didn’t expected to receive something that required us to make it. We mixed this with 330ml of beer and baked for 45mins. We had fun making it, however there were far too much rosemary for our liking. Simply Golden Berries by Clearly […]
