Friday Favourites #23

This past couple of weeks I've really been loving my new handbag.

It's the Kipling Festival Shopper, which I found in this colour at TK Maxx. I've always loved Kipling bags but I can't afford them full-price, so I was really happy to see one at TK Maxx! It was £29.99, reduced from £65 - a sizeable saving

I really like the light coloured patterned lining: it means it's a lot easier to find things inside the bag than it can be in bags with dark coloured lining - especially where they're vertically orientated rather than horizontal.

It carries everything I need for a day at uni (well, I carry my swim kit separately, but...): laptop, paper, books, lunch, water... I could go on!

Friday Favourites #22

I won 2048. Finally
And so that is my favourite for this week.
I followed this advice to help me get the hang of it - and then the advice to 'keep the biggest number in the top-right-hand corner.' It doesn't always work, but it sure helps. I ended up with a chain of 32-64-128-256-512-1024 that I collapsed into itself: no frustration about the number I needed being on the other side of the board.

And now, I am free!

Here's the Doctor Who edition, and here's the Doge edition. You're welcome.

Friday Favourites #21

I'm resurrecting my Friday Favourites feature as a way to ease me back into updating my blog. Life's been a bit of a rollercoaster recently, and I'm sure it'll continue in that way. For now, though, it's fairly calm, and I'm going to make the most of that!

So, this week I've been loving... MALTESERS!

When I was finding the picture above, I was reminded of a few delicious recipes you can make with Maltesers.

Firstly, Lorraine Pascale's Let Them Eat Cake, Cake.
Recipe here and also in her Fast, Fresh and Easy cookbook, which I highly recommend. I've actually made this and a few other recipes from that book, and I find her recipes to be really good.
Alternatively, use Kitkats too!

Next, some Malteser Macarons, which are from The Little Loaf (photo from the linked post)
I've never made macarons but I definitely want to try, especially after reading that!

Last, this variation on Rocky Road from Daily Delicious looks scrummy! (again, photo is from the linked post)

Please go and check out the two bloggers' recipes I've linked to - and if you do make them, let them (and me) know how you found them!
