In The Kitchen...

Spiced Oatmeal Banana Bread

I've been wanting to make Banana Bread for the longest time. I finally got around to baking some today after spending a good 40 minutes on Pinterest. I used recipes from A Cup Of Jo and Lovin From The Oven as inspiration, but tweaked the recipe so much. 


3 Ripe Bananas
1 Cup Brown Sugar
3/4 Cup Butter 
3 Cups Flour
4 Medium Eggs
1/4 Cup Almond Milk
1 1/2 Teaspoon Mixed Spice
1 tsp Baking Powder
Pinch of Salt
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Essence
2 Cups of Porridge Oats

Firstly I set the oven on 180 degrees C and proceeded onto mashing the bananas. Once I mashed the bananas, I added half a cup of the sugar and left it to one side. This is optional, I don’t know if it actually made a difference, as this was my first time baking banana bread.

I mixed all the wet and dry ingredients separately, then added the dry ingredients to the wet.

Once everything had been mixed well, I transferred the batter to the baking tin and topped it with some chopped milk chocolate, oats and mixed spice. I made too much for one tin, so I would say that this recipe is enough for 2 loaves. I decided to use the remaining batter to make muffins.

The loaf was in the oven oven for  around 40 - 45 minutes and the muffins were in for roughly 35 minutes.

NYFW Spring 2016 Favourites...

New York Fashion Week is practically over! There were so many beautiful looks on the runway this season. I am really loving the red and dark colours for spring. As we await LFW, I thought that I would share some of my favourite looks.

Places: Royal Teas Greenwich...

Lately, I’ve been trying to visit new places. London is so big, so there really isn't any reason why I should keep visiting the same places all the time, (excluding my guilty pleasure GBK). I have made it part of my “resolution” as I turn a year older in a week, to visit somewhere new at least twice a month, which translates to more blog posts!

Last week, a friend and fellow blogger introduced me to Royal Teas in Greenwich. I absolutely love the place! The café is nice and cosy. To think that I live nearby and had no idea about this place shows that I need to stop ignoring the local places. It is located on Royal Street, behind the busy parts of Greenwich.

Everything on the menu is homemade, freshly made, vegetarian and pocket friendly. Although I am not a vegetarian, that is music to my ears. Unfortunately, I did not get a proper meal as I was not hungry, but I did get a hot chocolate and scone, which was a major upgrade to the store-bought ones that I sometimes buy. This was the one time that I did not buy coffee whilst being in a café... absolute rarity.

As we are in the era of "taking the perfect picture of your food before you actually eat it", I was midway editing the picture I uploaded it onto my Instagram. I use VSCO cam to edit all my Instagram pictures, as I love the saturated and film like effect.

On my way to the Café and back home, I took some pictures of the area and visited a few shops including cheeseboard and The Creaky Shed, who stock gorgeous fruits, veg and condiments.
