Colour crush...

I've found myself pinning a lot of images with the same colour mood lately, so, here's a nice muted, but summery colour crush post for you...
Loving the mix of the aqua and jade tones with the pinks and peaches.

Well, they've been a while coming, but I've finally got round to posting the photos I took whilst in Ibiza... 
As you can imagine, I took quite a few, so these are just a selection.
I have to say the best part of the holiday was without a doubt, the day we spent in Formentera, 
soooo beautiful! 
And the sea was unbelievably blue, amazing...

Anyway, here they are...
And you can see the post on Ibizas' hippy market I did a little while ago here

Must be July...

I've been playing around with new designs for this blogs' header for a while now, 
feeling in need of a change.
It was this time last year that I updated the header and colours, etc... so 12 months until a new one is needed isn't bad I suppose.
It must be a July thing...
Anyway, I hope you like the new header and little avatar guy coz it'll probably be around for a good year or so, ha!

How glorious has the weather been in the UK recently by the way?? Oh my, amazing! Lets hope it lasts a bit longer eh.

Happy Monday everyone!

Banana and pecan muffins...!

I've got another lovely recipe for you today...
Banana, brown sugar and pecan muffins, mmmm... (with a cheeky drizzle of maple syrup for good measure) 
More mmmm's...

I cant seem to get enough of pecans lately. 
Anything with them in, I'm there! 
And the combo of banana with them and some maple syrup... droool!

I had a few bananas that had seen better days so rustled these up.
They're super yummy as a breakfast muffin. 
Well, to be honest, an anytime muffin really, 
but particularly nice for breakfast or elevenses with a cuppa.

(photos taken by me for use on loveprintstudio blog)


3 bananas
2 eggs lightly beaten
75g unsalted butter melted and cooled
125ml semi skimmed milk
250g self raising flour
1tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
115g brown sugar
50g porridge oats + extra for sprinkling
50g chopped pecans
Maple syrup

Directions for 12 muffins...

* Preheat oven to gas mark 5 and line a muffin tin with cases

* In a bowl, mash the bananas and add the eggs, melted butter and milk and mix together

* Mix the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and a pinch of salt in a separate bowl

* Add the sugar, oats and pecans and mix together

* Make a well in the centre and add the banana mixture and stir until combined

* Spoon into the cases and sprinkle a few oats over the top 
(here's where I added a little drizzle of maple syrup on top before going in the oven)

*Bake for 20-25 minutes

* Leave to cool for a few minutes and then...nibble!

Poppy fields...

Nevermind strawberry fields... 
I was out with the folks over the weekend and look what we came across...
I couldn't quite believe how vast this field of poppies was...I'm talking huge! They went on and on...
It was absolutely beautiful!
So, as you can imagine, out came the camera...

This is one of my favourite edits from Instagram last week.
It's a shot I got whilst in Ibiza on the boat cruise to see the sunset in San Antonio. 
I love the simplicity of it and the layers of colour against the tiny silhouettes walking along the deck...
