Butterbeer Recipe

Butterbeer Recipe

Hi lovelies, and welcome back to my blog! In the middle of autumn I decided I wanted to get into the Harry Potter spirit and make some Butterbeer. This recipe was heavily inspired by The Roaming Kitchen, and turned out pretty great. I think the only problem I had with this recipe was that it was very sweet, and you definitely only want to have a small mug of this at any one time. I tried to combine what would be “two” cups from this recipe, and it was very sickly towards the end. However, it was amazing!

I’ve been planning on writing this up for awhile now, but other opportunities came up and this post took a back seat. So, I thought, why not wait until December? Maybe it’s just me, but I love watching Harry Potter around Christmas. Especially the first two movies – I think it’s partly the nostalgia and warmth the earlier movies give, and partly just the magical Christmas scenes in the Great Hall. I’d happily make Butterbeer any time for the year, but I think autumn and winter are the better months to cuddle up with this drink.

Popcorn Shed Review

Popcorn Shed Review

Hi lovelies, and welcome back! I’ve been gifted some truly amazing popcorn by Popcorn Shed to review today, and I can’t stress enough how much I love some of these flavours. I cannot wait to share them with you!

The company was started by two cousins that just loved to bake, and experiment with popcorn and different flavours. (In their garden shed, of all places – hence Popcorn Shed.) I’ve tried experimenting with popcorn myself with Joe Wicks’ Chocolate Orange Popcorn Bars recipe, and it is difficult to get the flavour and consistency you want. When I made mine, it ended up losing most of it’s crunch. However, Laura and Sam have created the perfect recipes and have maintained texture, as well as amazing flavours!

Padrino’s Pizza, Dundee – Review

Padrino’s Pizza, Dundee – Review

Hi guys, and welcome back. Today I’ll be doing a review of the new pizza restaurant in Dundee, Scotland – Padrino’s Pizza! This is a great, little place just a few minutes walk away from the train station. My boyfriend and I were lucky enough to be invited for a complimentary meal in return for a review, so I want to start by thanking the lovely people at Padrino’s Pizza for having us! We had a lovely time, and such delicious food.

Not only that, but the atmosphere was great! It is a small restaurant, with around 5 tables and a breakfast-style bar looking out onto the street. Don’t let that put you off, however, as it doesn’t feel “small” as such – cosy would be a better word to describe it. As it starts to get darker outside, the lighting becomes very atmospheric and warm. I almost didn’t want to leave by the time it came to go home – I was very comfortable there, and the staff were very welcoming, too!

Adagio Autumn Teas Review

Adagio Autumn Teas Review

Welcome back, lovelies! I’m so excited for today’s post, and I’ve been waiting for weeks to bring this to you. If I could’ve wrote about it straight away, I would have, but I wanted to try all the teas so I could give you a detailed review. I’m a huge tea lover, and was so excited when the lovely people at Adagio Teas approached me to try out their autumn and winter tea ranges. I was truly spoiled by them, and got some other goodies and accessories in the package, too! In this post, I will be talking you through the Adagio autumn teas, and my favourites.

Stay tuned for their Christmas teas range, as well – there are some mouthwatering flavours for the festive season!
