2014-Biteable-beauty-hj-manicure-display

I’m so pleased to have discovered HJ Manicure. Well, actually Helen discovered me, as she approached us earlier on in the year to work on their re-launch. A couple of weeks ago we had a launch event for the AW14 shimmer collection colours at Orico London on The Kings Road. Whenever I go to paint my nails from my HJ Manicure box it is such …

St John’s Tavern Birthday Dinner

2014-Biteable-Beauty-art-St-Johns-Tavern-Archway

St John’s Tavern is one of my favourite places to eat in London, so naturally I chose it as the location for my birthday dinner. It’s also conveniently located on the main road near our home. The menu is always impressive, and I can’t help but feel that it’s the kind of food I would serve were I to run a restaurant. My parents came …

Make at Home Food : Meringues

Make-At-Home-Meringues

If you read and made last week’s recipe of Lucuma Ice Cream you may be wondering what to do with your egg whites. If you are a protein freak, perhaps you’ll be saving them up for egg white omelettes or for protein shakes, however if you want a little treat might I suggest some meringues! They are unfortunately a sugar-laden dessert. I’d love to create a healthier recipe …

Balance Me Blogger Event Yesterday’s blog about the Bodhi event was a couple of months in the pipeline. This post relates to an event I went to all the way back in March!

Bodhi & Birch Rosa Rosa launch event It’s a couple of months since the Bodhi & Birch Rosa Rosa launch event, I can’t quite believe how quickly the time has passed!

You just have to watch any of these videos or documentaries to get a hint of just how magical mushrooms really are.

Outing at Kew Gardens If you read last week’s Fundays post, you will already know I spent part of it at Kew Gardens2, and that first we went for tea at The Original Maids of Honour. Besides from the fact I love Kew, there were two reasons for our visit – it was the last chance we had to go before the Plantasia exhibition finished, …

I’ve had some Lucuma Superfruit Powder from Bon Pom at home for a while now, and I’ve been wanting to create some Lucuma Ice Cream with it ever since it’s been in my possession. It takes me back to my time in Peru, where I made so many friends and had so much fun even though most of my trips out there were for business.Unfortunately we lost part …
