Eats : Turtle Bay


So last week me and Rob were invited to have dinner & cocktails at Turtle Bay in Walthamstow. Note I said Walthamstow, I live in STREATHAM the other end of London literally, and I will be going back because it was that damn good, worth an hours journey any day.
Turtle bay does amazing Caribbean food, all the traditional yummy bits like Jerk chicken, fried plantain and patties but with some amazing extra special eats. We started off with a few cocktails  please for the love of god if you like banana get the Hummingbird - white rum, Tia Maria, banana liqueur, cream, fresh banana & coconut. The jerk wings were a must to start, hotter than hell and too good, the chili squid got a big thumbs up from us too. The main event,  I am still raving about, and is the reason we'll be going back very soon was the double dipped jerk steak. It was sex on a plate, rare - and Rob kept on nicking bits of mine even though he had the tastiest jerk lamb I've ever eaten. Safe to say after cocktails and my weight in wings and steak, we didn't make it to dessert. Big thanks to Kitty who looked after us for the evening, you were such a babe!

Thanks Turtle Bay we'll be back soon :)

p.s Apologies again for the i phone photos - my camera charger has gone walkabout and I'mw aiting for the new one to arrive *le sigh*

To Morrisons in Disco Pants , Chilli and 20% off at Boohoo


This is just a quick post in between drinking (when are my posts not between drinking, oh hey typical student) an making the most kick ass Chilli with my boyfriend. You NEED to make epic chilli nachos, you make the chilli con carne, then put a whole packet of Doritos on a baking tray, cover them in cheese, then chilli, put LOADS more cheese on top, bake in the oven then serve with guacamole, sour cream and salsa, AMAZING!

My boyfriend took a few pictures of me messing about on our way back from Morrisons:

 T shirt : Oxfam , Shirt : charity shop , Disco Pants : American apparel , Boots : Dr Martens (laces ebay)


 Cross Bracelet : Dorothy Perkins , Chain bracelet : Peacocks 

I'm not even an Arsenal fan. Sorry City!

This isn't really the best outfit post, but we've all been there, rushing to go somewhere and packed random clothes for the next day, I bought this t shirt about four years ago and I NEVER wear it. I think I turned out all right considering :)

Oh yeah , and I got an email from the lovely people at myunidays announcing a code for 20% off at here's a link to the code  :) I thought I should share the wealth, just because 'm too poor to buy anything at Boohoo doesn't mean you shouldn't

My Boohoo favourites at the moment :-
:) Happy shopping 

Gonna get back to my nachos and Strongbow

Clashing prints and wedge trainers : Summer has arrived !!

Today, like most of my days lately has been all about revision. I only have six more days till my exams are over and it is already SO HOT and sunny. I cycled home from uni today and you don't even want to know how sweaty I got... Anyway, I was having a bit of a clothing crisis today, I have a new-found hatred for my legs (developed in the last 24 hours I'm sure) and I couldn't find the clothes I actually wanted to wear soooooo this is what happened (apologies for the mirror photos, my lovely house-mate Jackie was indisposed this afternoon :

Trousers : Warehouse via a charity shop , Bralet : Topshop sale 

Wedge trainers : H&M
Lipstick : Rimmel Coral Queen , Earrings : Primark

I don't usually clash my prints like this but today it was the only outfit I put on I actually liked. I bought these trousers quite a while ago at a charity shop in Dalston and haven't worn them until now, finally feel as though I'm getting my moneys worth YESSSSSSSS:) 

I ended up having  a really productive day and I even got round to making this pizza from scratch and doesn't it look yummy? 

Spinach, Chilli, Egg and Cheese pizza and It's square because I decided I like square pizzas :D

I saw an awesome Wah nails design on The Secret Avenue  and immediately set about doing my own version with pink nail varnish, a black Sharpie and a Rimmel matt top coat (I bit my nails to bits so sorry they're a bit gross).
The only camera I had to hand this evening was the one on my phone which is pretty atrocious (HTC SORT IT OUT), in my head though it's the same as Instagram because it does make photos look like they are a bit shitty and old anyway WITHOUT downloading an app.

I really really need to do some shopping soon before I wither away, River Island at the moment OH MY GOODNESS SO MUCH STUFF I NEED IN MY LIFE!!!!!
