Hope your weekend is as lush as this blueberry and custard pastry I had for breakfast.

I love waffles. I hadn’t ever had a waffle(that wasn’t an Eggo) until I was in my late teens.

I have always wanted a waffle iron… but have never owned one. Recently a friend lend me theirs… I’m obsessed. I’ve been trying a few different recipes but got the best results from this one… even if baking using cup measures instead of weights is LUNACY I managed a pretty good result.

When we first adopted Zelda I wanted to find a collar with a bell for her, however putting a regular collar on a cat is DANGEROUS! DO NOT DO IT! Don’t put a collar on a cat that doesn’t have a QUICK RELEASE!

I spent MONTHS trying to find a collar with a quick release, also called ‘break away’ collars, without much luck. I wanted something in leather, something classic and stylish… because I am that kind of #catmom, and had almost given up home… then I found Cheshire&Wain. They’re a LUXURY brand for sure as most collars will run you 40£ to 60£ for a collar.

I have had to talk myself out of buying Zelda a second one for over a year now. They just dropped a new collection and once again I’m having to talk myself out of ordering one. My daughter deserves to be spoiled. Her current collar is grey  with a ‘Fur Bae‘ charm, and ID tag(she’s also microchipped OBVS) added and tbh she needs a more colourful one for special occasions.

I have this bitter soft spot for collage art. In the final year of my degree I wanted to do my thesis work in collage, however the old white guy who was my assigned to be my mentor(and would be grading my work) straight up said ‘collage isn’t art’… this guy also repeatedly name dropped having hung out with Andy Warhol so the irony wasn’t lost on me. So because I didn’t want to flunk out I completely changed my thesis work… and hated it.

…now while I still love collage, it always reminds me how I didn’t stand my ground in school.

 

All these works are by Lidwine Titli.

As I’m sure you’ve already read(or not if you’re new) I’m allergic to metals. This means a lot of accessorising options aren’t an option for me. So I am considering getting into hats. Not just your everyday run of the mill(inery) hats, but SERIOUS HATS.

Margaret O’Connor is a spectacular Milliner and the hats they create are stunning. Pretty sure I can’t pull at least one of these off. What do you think?
