Finally I can get merry and not feel guilty about work! And what a better way than at a family Christmas drinks! We made some delicious nibbles including crab filo pastry cups, prawn mayonnaise in croustades, lime and chilli chicken skewers with avocado dip, cranberry and brie filo parcels, smoked salmon on herb blinis, and the family favourites quails eggs and devils on horseback (prunes wrapped in bacon). I definitely think it is worth making your own nibbles - huge number of compliments and some festively full bellys!
Had a delicious full English brekky at The French Cafe in Balham as a break from boring revision! Have heard it is also a fantastic spot for lunch and dinner - definitely going to try out both in the near future. Their menus can be found on their website here.
I first spotted the necklace above in Harvey Nichols, and although it was far out of my student budget, I couldn't resist trying it on! The Italian design duo behind the Iosselliani brand are Paolo Giacomelli and Roberta Paolucci, and it was Paolo who began his career designing jewellery for Missoni. I love the dramatic use of precious combined with heavy metal designs, creating statement pieces that are perfect for jazzing up a simple outfit!
