Ups and downs, that’s what this week has been filled with. Brilliant ups, including booking our summer holiday to Crete! One week of sunshine, swimming, the beach and houmous. Bliss! Spending time with different friends has been lovely; two dinner parties held at our flat has been hectic but fun. Round two is this evening, and the kitchen is filled with different smells and various stages of food in preparation. This evening we are hosting the rather lovely Rach and her fiancee. Rach writes the brilliant Vanilla Sugar blog, so I was super nervous about coming up with what to cook for tonight’s meal! It can’t be half as good as what they made for us…!

Blogs which I have been devouring this week:

La Belle Vegan – I had almost forgotten about this little gem. Brilliantly creative vegan recipes, with the perfect combination of healthy and naughty.

No Fashion Victims – Crisp, bright photography which is 90% fashion focused, with a great mix of Emmi’s personal life. It may be in Finnish, but don’t let that put you off!

The Gluttonous Vegan – Wonderful recipes which will inspire you no matter what you’re in the mood for. Her recipes have recently been featured on the Channel 4 Food website!

Vegan in Brighton – Wondering where to eat vegan food in pretty much any corner of the UK and Europe? Have a root through this blog, as well as JoJo’s other venture; Operation Icing – a not-for-profit Brighton-based bakery!

The Graphic Foodie  – Brighton-based foodie blog which covers areas such as design, restaurant reviews and events.

Simply Breakfast – Pore over every single photograph. And then click on the links, and pore over Jennifer’s numerous other sites filled with her wonderful photography.

Healthy Exposures – Don’t you love it when people throw a bunch of ingredients together and it tastes good? And then they photograph it like a champ?

Honey & Jam – Beautiful photographs of beautiful food <3 I love this ladies styling.

A Daisy Chain Dream – Down to earth lovely with a keen eye for snacks! A mutual love of the high street attracted me to Laura’s blog, and I’m addicted to her daily updates.

Anyway, enough of all this nonsense, I have some chopping, cleaning and table laying to be getting on with! Hope you all enjoy the blogs above, and enjoy what is left of your weekend!

      No worries! We had a bbq on the beach last night, it was super nice! Will be better with access to a kitchen to prepare potato salad, and other yummy things!
