Pancake Day!

Happy Pancake Day 2015! Who doesn't love a yummy freshly made pancake? 

Today I decided to indulge in an American staple, Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix. Nothing could be simpler or nicer. However, if you are looking for a good place to eat a pancake - may I recommend Londoners visit My Old Dutch (see below) and LA friends visit BLD Restaurant (see below).

A Red Lippy for Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!

No seriously after being cooped up recovering at home for the last three months, getting to go out even if its to the doctor's or for a quick lunch is a treat worthy of a flat iron, makeup and a fun piece of jewellery. And since today is Valentine's Day, I pulled out my two red lipsticks. Alas, I am more of a pink girl so two is all it is but what fun none the less. I believe it is a cardinal rule - even if not written down - that every woman should own at least one red lipstick, no? :)

Winter Bliss: Dragonfly Tea and Girl Scout Cookies

Back in November when I got sick and had to come back to California to recover (having some really good days of late!), I was offered a chance to test and review Dragonfly Tea but the teas literally arrived the day before I flew home to CA and doctor visits and recovery took precedence but no longer. Feeling not half bad today, I wanted to share with y'all my findings and opinions about this organic tea company so sit down, grab your own cuppa and maybe a biscuit or two. ;)

Super Bowl Commercials

It is Super Bowl Sunday and that means some great and horrid commercials...

What are your favourites? Seems that sentimentality is the overall theme this year as is perfectly demonstrated by such commercials as:
