My ultimate mini satchel

Strolling through Primark a few weeks back, My eye was caught by this beautiful maroon/ burgundy/ deliciously dark berry mini satchel.

I love a good satchel and immediately snatched it determined to buy it and at a ridiculously low £6 buy it I did. Everything about it appeals to me.

I really love the gun metal hardware and matte finish that gives it a glossier high end look. Although I have been using this as a clutch it does come with a strap which I would have preferred to be detachable but hey ho! It is the perfect size for the bare essentials, phone, money, keys, cards, oyster card of course and lippie. Bish, bash, bosh.

My fav khaki snuggly jumper and mini satchel- good colour pair no?

I do tend to favour bigger bags and carry my whole room in the depths of them but have been leaning towards pouches as seen in this post. I love that it can be taken from day to night and have been reaching for it non stop of late. It adds a really nice sophisticated yet edgy twist to any outfit. Every once in a while I stumble across a fashion item that I obsess over and this my friends is it! 
It just seems perfect for me in every way and I can't wait to break this bad boy out for the Christmas party season.

What do you think guys?

Lets get mini: Gourmet brioche hotdogs

Mini brioche hotdogs, wooh woooh!

  OK, So they aren't proper hot dogs but these are sooo 
much better and more importantly I like to think of them as a upgraded gourmet version.

These were so good guys, I honestly want to face plant them nom nomsssss....

Hot dogs are not often eaten in my house, it just isn't our bag. I never really jumped on them as a kid and during my teen years it was a once in a blue moon sitc.

I have been randomly craving brioche hot dogs for ages and finally got around to making them and ummm umm hmmm do they taste good.

I hold my hands up I didn't bake these Brioche rolls, I simply picked up a pack of 8 and shimmied home to get started.

Ingredients (serves 2 or 1 greedy bugger :-0):
4 x apple and cider Cumberland sausages - bought by a friend at a farmers market
4 x brioche rolls buttered with Olivio or drizzled with virgin olive oil
1 1/2 x medium Spanish onion caramelise on medium heat
Dijon Mustard

chili salsa:
2 chopped chillis
 1 medium tomato
½ cucumber
Juice of 1 lime
Extra virgin olive oil
chili flakes for extra zing
a drizzle of honey 

Final stage:
Look the hot dog right in the eye and say "get in my face good sir, make haste!" 

I really hope yo give them a try dolls, I absolutely adore them.

Childhood revival: Caterpillar Boots!

When  was I kid I absolutely loved Caterpillar boots. 
Whether on a builder or a feels like teen spirit grunge kid they just looked kool with a k!

I loooooved them so much and nagged my mum to get me a pair before for ages and treasured them maybe even more than docs!, before I graduated to kickers and Timberlands.

I love everything about them. 
The camel colour, the soles and the distinctive laces. 
The feel of them is so very retro and reminiscent of a simpler time: 1997.
