feast your eyes on these lovely goods!

1 //  2 // 3 // 4
Hello there everybody!

How are we all doing?

Sorry it's been a while since we said hello (I've been busy behind the scenes with my other work) but I've been on an internet browse again, and came across some really lovely things.  And, I thought it was about time I shared another cheery post with you.

So here it is.

1 // Check out this cool biscuit notepad!  From one of my favourite shops Future and Found.

2 // Founds this cool online shop with the coolest triangle necklaces.  I have a thing about triangle patterns at the moment so these caught my eye. The colours are especially fab!

3 //  On the theme of food-shaped notepads coincidently, in the same shop as above, they sell these Ice Cream Sandwich notepads!

4 // I went into one of my favourite shops, Paperchase the other day and they have so much great new stock - I spent so long looking at it all - and this new munch bunch range is great fun, just look at this recipe book!  It's perfect for all the torn out recipes from magazines and scribbled down notes I have - finally they'll be nice and organised in here.

See you again soon for more foodie chatter and fun!

There's no explanation required here really. Breakfast. Pancakes. Syrup. That's all. Oh and a friend who needed cheering up.  

It worked.

Many thanks to Selsley Foods Raspberry and Redcurrant Syrup and Winstones Ice Cream which were the best additions to these pancakes anyone could wish for.  

The great thing is that they're two local producers from right here in the Cotswolds, and they're awesome.

This breakfast was pure champion.

Have a go yourself....

150g Flour (use same amount of Doves Gluten free flour in place if GF diet)
1 tsp baking powder
30g sugar
1 egg
150ml milk
1tsp vanilla essence (if you have it)
30g butter

Combine Flour, Baking Powder and Sugar in a bowl. Make a well int he middle, crack in the egg and pour in the milk. Whisk it all up. Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract if you have it. 

Heat up a frying pan, pop in some of the butter, wait until it bubbles.

Add a ladle of the pancake batter, wait until you can see bubbles on the top, then flip. Add some more butter to the pan, and repeat until you run out of batter. 

Pour syrup on top. Add some ice cream. Go crazy.

So far this week...

So far this week I've not done a lot of cooking.

I've been having a lot of food on the 'run' because I've been a bit busy in my other 'life' away from the kitchen.

The good news is that I have had a chance to visit The Wilson - (Cheltenham's new art gallery and museum) that has a really cool coffee shop/cafe attached to it. Which I will be checking into in due course - didn't have time this week, but I will visit soon with my coffee glasses on! (Follow the Cafe on Twitter here for lots of offers - they do a gluten free chocolate brownie slice I've heard!)

Looks good though, don't you think?

I've also been drawing a lot. Here are a few sketches I've been doing as part of a 30 day sketching project. As you know, I do a bit of an illustration and art on the side and I've recently made some new illustrations into nifty little greetings cards, which arrived today.

If you'd like to follow my 30 day sketching project, follow me @angiebee on Instagram!

Don't worry, I've stocked up my cupboards again this evening to start making some sweet treats and eats again over the next few days which I will share with you all!

Cheerio for now my food loving friends!

Can't get enough of 91 Magazine!

I'm bursting with excitement because the new issue of 91 Magazine is now online! Not only is it one of my favourite magazines to read online, but I'm so proud to have a feature published in the new edition! And it looks gorgeous!

I discovered this gem of a magazine back in the Spring via Pretty Pastel Style heroine, interior stylist Selina Lake and I've been flicking through past editions ever since. It's full of so many lovely features and contributions from lots of creatively talented people - it's hard to choose a favourite, with each turn of the page, there's something even more exciting. Everyone I've introduced to 91 Magazine loves it as the articles are full of eye candy, featuring everything from crafts to vintage wares, and photography to interiors!My little feature 'A bit of the side!' - stars 4 deliciously healthy Gluten Free soups and Gluten Free side dishes, including some amazing gluten free savoury cheddar scones (that you will be munching on all winter long) are on page 102 onwards.  All the photography was captured in my tiny kitchen here in my flat and I love how the beetroot soup turned out in particular - get a load of that pink colour!

There's also a lovely feature all about wall mounted crates and tins in this edition which I really love and definitely getting the urge to do in my kitchen.. it's such a neat idea and very effective, don't you think?  If you like crafts, interiors or vintage style, there's so much more inspiration in the magazine, you really won't know where to start - and the great thing is that you can flick through it all online completely freeeeeee!!!  Yep, it's too great isn't it?!  Go and sit down with a big mug of tea and soak it all in, right here! >  91 Magazine

October Favourites

I did a bit of an internet spree today and finished up at Anthropologie.

And stayed there for some time.

I lost a few hours actually.

I'd forgotten how much I love Anthropologie! Not come across Anthropologie before? Well, let me tell you, it's an amazingly beautiful shop full of clothes and adorable homesey goods (is 'homesey' a word? Nope, well you know what I mean) that I discovered when I was in New York a few years back.  I wanted to take the shop home with me on the plane.

Sadly there's only a store in London, but the good news is that you can shop on their UK website and us Brits can discover their beautiful clothes and goodies for ourselves!

Here's some things I picked out from their site. They sell really nice cooking books too.

You see! How perfect could this shop be? Cool clothes, nice shoes, modern plates and awesome cook books.

// I Love NY Cook Book.  All the best recipes from the city you love. Reinterpreting New York classic dishes.

// Sweater with collar.  Collars are all the rage this autumn/winter and this spotty one is really cute.

// Penguin Jumper!  Because jumpers should be fun.  And cute.

// Where Chefs Eat.  A book all about...well, where chefs really eat.  Because chefs should know where all the good food is served, right?

...And now I'd better get back to work.
