Outfit Post: Winter In The Country

Donkey in Brampton
I spent the first weekend of the new year up in Cumbria where Boyfriend’s family live and it was absolutely beautiful! His mum lives in an old station house with vast views over the moors and while we were staying at his Dad’s we took a short walk until we came across a Cumbrian safari! This donkey dude was eager to trundle down and meet us and we also hung out with sheep and some adorable snuffling pigs (not pictured). More on our adventure soon, but it was such a joy to be so close to all this natural wonderment!

Warm Outfits That Are Fashionable

What To Wear In Winter

Jewellery, Barbed Wire

My jumper was a Christmas gift (insane pineapple in-jokes, seriously our living room is covered in them!) and a gorgeous one at that – it’s so soft and comfortable I’ve been wearing it with everything: jeans, dresses, skirts, but I think this outfit is my favourite combination. Knowing me oh so well, Boyfriend got me a size up in the jumper so it’s a little slouchy and the sleeves are a perfect length as I like them a little long. Kudos to Sugarhill Boutique, you nailed it!

New York Necklace
As well as the ol’ pineapple, Boyfriend bought me the Empire State Building charm above and then stole my tools and supplies and made me a necklace for it; how adorable is that? The ring was a gift too, but I knew about that one as we ordered it together on a drunken night out, haha. It’s by one of my favourite jewellery designers, Black Willow Jewellery, who makes the most stunning pieces from her own hand carved casts. If you’ve not seen her mystical collections, go now!!

Recipe: Super Easy Healthy Banana Milkshake

Easy Banana Milkshake Recipe

You might have seen my post on my crazy relationship with bananas, but it’s by far one of my favourite flavours. Up until recently I would devour a ready made banana milkshake from the supermarket in no time, but of course they’re hideously unhealthy and full of sugars and preservatives. I put together this healthy banana milkshake recipe earlier in the week when we had one grim looking, over ripe banana left that Boyfriend was going to throw away. Smoothies and milkshakes are a great way to use up slightly bad fruit and vegetables.

Best Banana Milkshake Recipes

You can use 1 or 2 bananas for one serving. The more you use, the thicker the milkshake will be. I’ve tried both and I actually prefer just using 1 banana, but you can chuck in an extra one to get more fruit into your diet.

I used our Cooks Multi Blender, that I introduced to you in my Fresh Fruit Smoothie recipe, for this milkshake. It’s so easy to use and clean!

// Peel the banana(s) and break into smaller pieces with your fingers. Pop into the blender, add 1-2 teaspoons of honey and fill up with milk. Whizz up and it’s done!

Easy Healthy Recipes
Tip: If you find yourself needing to add more milk after you’ve poured the milkshake into your glass, make sure you mix it with a spoon afterwards or the milk might collect in the bottom without mixing with your drink.

The great thing about this recipe is that it gives you a sugary boost, but only uses natural sugars and it actually contains fruit, unlike those ready made supermarket milkshakes!!
