Eat, Repeat

Lemon posset with passionfruit & homemade shortbread

Living could be so banal, were it not for the simple pleasures, repetitive as they are, that swim within the interludes.

Another weekend, another brunch: The Bolingbroke, on the Northcote Road (South London). Arrived too late for brunch, settling on a starter, some accompaniments, & a dessert. Excellent food, possibly an entry into one of the top 5 desserts I've ever tasted (don't ask me to name the rest, or in any order, that would be too much responsibility for me to foster on a Sunday morning!) The passionfruit was tart & tangy but still sweet, the posset incredibly creamy, & the shortbread biscuits defiantly light to the touch, buttery & crumbly.

In light of the erratic weather (mainly rain), I wore my new tres skinny coupe dark-wash blue jeans & grey Topshop sweater, brightened things up with a red lipstick by Revlon & red hair-tie, & added a cream & grey tartan wrap from Zara, plus Hunters.

Yes, life can be banal sometimes but more often than not the simple pleasures in life (i.e brunch) are just what the doctor ordered. Everything looks really yummy.. makes me want to make some French toast.

thanks everyone! mm yeah i had 2 of those cappuccinos, coffee is a "vice" of sorts that I never want to give up, I love the scent, the ritual, & the caffeine rush :)

the grey sweater was a recent rediscovery from mny wardrobe - from Topshop last year, it's such a simple but flattering cut, perfect for uninspiring days..
