Candles are perfect for cosy nights in, especially as the darker nights are drawing in. Why not use a henna cone to create some beautiful designs on tea lights or candles? I often henna large candles also, they look gorgeous plus it's fun getting creative and practising designs. If you're like me you will find it far too tempting to do a little hand design too.

A few weeks ago I bought some gorgeous Jeffrey Campbell boots from the Freepeople sale, I chose the black ones and they are perfect. Super cosy and go with everything what more do you need? maybe a brown pair of boots?!
This has been the longest week ever! I can't even begin to tell you how glad I am that the weekend is finally here. As you may have noticed the blog has had a re-jig and a name change, I felt it was time to evolve.
For quite some time now I wanted to change the name and do a blog make over, with one thing and another time wasn't on my side. Finally I managed to squeeze in some hours and clean up the blog, I wanted a simple clean look , I'm pretty happy with how it turned out ( i still have a few tweeks to do here & there) in the next two week i will be changing the URL also, just giving you the heads up. Hope you like it!
When it comes to the weekend we love to cook together, it became our house tradition when Penny was just a little tot. On a Friday we make a plan of what we fancy making, then come Saturday morning the husband and little P head out to get what we need.
Generally it's a unanimous vote for an Indian or Thai dish, they are more or less staples in our household. I though I would share a recipe we often make which is homemade chapattis. Not only are they super tasty they are ridiculously easy to make, so much so preparing them is Penny's job when Indian is on the cards.
You will need:
250g Chapatti flour
Good pinch of salt
2tbsp butter or oil
120-150ml hand warm water
Grab yourself a large mixing bowl, add in your flour and salt then give them a good mix together. Make a well in the center of the flour then add in your oil or butter and warm water, the water should be added gradually while mixing. You are looking for a soft well formed dough which isn't sticky to touch. Once the right consistency has been achieved knead the dough (in the bowl is fine) and leave it to rest for 10-15 minuets.
Divide your dough in to eight pieces, then on a floured surface use a rolling pin to flatten out your chapattis, I find a 13-15cm circle works perfect.
Heat up large heavy flat pan (we just use a large frying pan) then place in one of your chapattis, cook for around two minuets or when bubbles start to appear (flatten with a spatula as this helps them cook through) , then flip over and repeat. If you wish you can brush on butter once cooked, serve warm with your favorite Indian dish and enjoy!
