October 2014 – Saw/Ate/Read


October should mean ‘golden leaves’ or something along the beauty of the light hitting the leaves before they float to the ground. Yes, fall is in full swing and it’s been rather gorgeous in the bright clear days we’ve been gifted. Yes, it was a gloriously golden month with more sunshine and warmth than usual.

Overall, I began and ended the month with more free time than usual thanks to lacking work, but it meant I’ve been able to enjoy the hours of daylight with the clocks now having fallen an hour backwards and the sun setting ever earlier to the dark months of winter ahead.

Dinner at Crazy Homies with delicious tacos and cocktails in Notting Hill has now been put on the return list.

The TED talk of the month is how photography connects us from the Photo Director of National Geographic.

The recipe that had me salivating the most this month was something I’ve only ever heard of and rarely seen in recipes – Maple Sweet Potato pie with some perfectly spiced maple walnuts that finish the dish perfectly. The fact this was to celebrate my 300th post was the cherry on top.

Blog love this month goes to Nessie at Baker=Love and her ever so sweet inspired Black Forest Chia Chocolate Pudding in honor of her father. She has one of the loveliest blogs and good luck with your exams Nessie.

Prints of my most recent trip are now available to purchase on Society 6 and until the 9th of November there is free shipping worldwide.

Thumbprint cookies have been on the endless to-do list for sometime, but these 5 Ingredient Raspberry Cheesecake Thumbprint Cookies may have just moved them to the top of the list from Baker by Nature.

This list of candies to make at home from Bon Appetit had me salivating.

With travel costing more and more for simple extras this list of airlines that still give free flier perks.
