1. One of the blogger clichés – cocktails served in jars. 2. My winnings from the Shoeaholics #Shoefie competition. 3. A delicious and easy-to-make chicken tagine using this recipe. 4. Modelling the jewellery I made at the Blackheart Creatives workshop. 5. Doing the typical blogger thing of taking photos of my breakfast. 6. Amazing pancakes at the Cosy Club. 7. Lovely colourful flowers (not for Valentine’s Day, though). 8. Lip-smacking scallops served in the shell with garlic butter at the Lido… 9. …followed by some of the most delicious ice cream I’ve ever eaten – the Lido’s homemade salted butter caramel ice cream. Drool.
Well that month went rather quickly, didn’t it? It feels like only yesterday I was doing my January Instagram round-up, and here I am again.
It seems February was a month for over-indulgence – food and drink has featured a lot on my Instagram over the past few weeks. I just can’t resist snapping a pretty plate of food. It started with cocktails served in jam jars at Las Iguanas – I know it’s such a cliché to serve cocktails in jars, but I still like it. My main day of indulgence was, of course, Pancake Day, when I had delicious pancakes for lunch at the Cosy Club with the Fed Up & Drunk team, then had them again for pudding in the evening (topped with Nutella, natch). Well, Pancake Day comes but once a year, after all.
One of my highlights this month was the Blackheart Creatives Valentine’s Day jewellery-making workshop – it was such good fun and I came away with two lovely pieces of jewellery. I highly recommend popping along to one of their workshops if you get a chance. Another high point was the fantastic meal I had at the Lido in Bristol (food again). I’ve been wanting to come back to this place since I visited for a spa day last summer, and I think it’s now one of my favourite spots in the city.
So that was February. Here’s hoping next month doesn’t fly by quite as fast – I have lots of sewing projects I want to get done.
