London Lovin

I haven’t been to London in a long while, so what better way to spend the day than in a cute little restaurant (which also made me entirely wary of the way I conducted myself hehe) with waffles and tea!

The Ivy City Garden is an adorable, albeit stunning, venue and for anyone who needs a fitting place to treat their loved ones or catch up with a longtime pal, this was one of the best ways to do so.

The art here was just phenomenal! Although, art itself is such an abstract form of visual representation for anything and it does leave a classy, timeless effect on anyone who witnesses it.

The staff were absolutely lovely and hospitable and I look forward to venturing to all the other Ivy restaurants (may have to create an archive of all my special visits), do enjoy the photos below x



See you soon 🙂




Quick And Easy Rocky Road

Hope you are all well. I recently made a rocky road which I have previously made for Easter and based it on this recipe. I obviously took away the crème and mini eggs but apart from that, everything else is the same.

I am a massive fan of baking and especially treats that can be done in less than 30 minutes, so this is a perfect recipe for those days you do not have time to go all out and bake a cake but still want to satisfy your sweet tooth. So follow the recipe and be on your way to a scrumptious rocky road perfect for all occasions!


150g unsalted butter

250g dark chocolate, chopped

150g milk chocolate, chopped

4 tbsp. Golden syrup.

180g mini marshmallows

150g digestive biscuits, crushed into chunks

150g white chocolate, chopped



Melt your unsalted butter over a relatively low heat, when it is half melted add in your dark and milk chocolate and golden syrup & melt over a low heat. Be careful with this as you do not want your chocolate to burn and separate. Once your chocolate is fully melted,mix in your crushed digestive biscuits (bigger chunks are better), and mini marshmallows until the mixture is well coated. Leave aside to cool for 10 minutes.

Line a 20cm x 20cm baking tin and press your mixture into it firmly. Melt your white chocolate and drizzle over the rocky road mixture. Leave in the fridge for a couple of hours until it sets completely. However, I would recommend taking your rocky road out of the fridge about half an hour before eating because it tastes much, much better when at room temperature.

I hope you enjoyed this simple but delicious recipe – like the post and comment if you tried it at home!
