The McQueen sample sale is being held at the moment at a fabulous house near Farringdon. Being a student I knew I was not going to be able to afford anything, but thought I'd go along anyway to check it out! And what a treat it was; intricately made clothes, wonderful shoes and an endless array of skull encrusted jewels - it certainly did not disappoint!
A lovely little cafe that sits on West Port, at the West end of Edinburgh, near the ECA is Lovecrumbs. Endless yummy cakes are on offer, as well as an array of teas and fresh coffees with unlimited hot water! They also sell little additions on the side such as yummy jam for £6!
First use of the pasta machine! We chose a Jamie Oliver recipe, a ricotta, parmesan and pecorino tortellini with sage butter, and just did a basic pasta recipe using 00 flour. We did it as a starter, and gave each person roughly 6 pieces each which was the perfect amount. Although it was quite time consuming folding each tortellini parcel, it was definitely worth it in the end! Find the recipe here.
