I’m feeling very autumnal; enjoying slowing down with the seasons. Lots of snuggling up on the sofa under a blanket with a cup of tea reading a book surrounded by candles and incense – cosy autumn bliss. Aside from this – below are a few of the things I’ve been enjoying viewing, reading and eating!
November: Blankets, Fluffy socks, Candles, Fireworks, Cosy
A plant-based restaurant near St. Pauls in London (there is also a restaurant in Cambridge.) Their food is incredible, completely delicious. My partner and I have been there a couple of times this month; there was just too many yummy dishes we had to go back to try more. My favourites were the Katsu Curry and the Lasagne.
This collection of short stories is incredible. The stories focus on the themes of gender, sexuality and human rights. Reading this book I moved through every emotion possible; the stories are heart-breaking, thought-provoking, uplifting and everything in between. I really, really recommend this book. It’d make a great Christmas gift!
Helen Faliveno: yoga teacher, wonderful human being and a good friend of mine has a YouTube channel. If you’re into vlogs, vegan food or fancy some free at home yoga practices – check out her channel. Helen’s flows are awesome, she’s also got some videos breaking down poses and providing tips and drills.
I read Sally’s other book, Normal People, not long ago. I loved that book, but this book was even better. Sally is a brilliant author who has a way of delving into the most interesting aspects of life and depicting them beautifully and emotively on the page. Conversations with Friends is a story about friendship, sexuality, relationships, sex, love, mental health, physical health and all the other various aspects involved in being human. 10/10.
I stumbled across this website looking at a sweet potato ice cream recipe (I haven’t made it yet but I’m excited to give it a go soon!) I saw so many incredible looking recipes flicking through the back catalogue on there and I’ve bookmarked far more than I can make anytime soon! I made the lentil bolognese recently and it was so yummy and super quick and easy to make.
