Summer officially starts next week apparently, you wouldn’t know it in London though. The last couple of weeks have been so wet and miserable… actually, that sounds A LOT like a British summer! The worst part it is still warm out, so being outside is very unpleasant. I love going for walks around my new neighbourhood because the area I live in is so pretty. I’ve just wanted to stay inside as much as possible tately to avoid that thick, wet air! Luckily, there’s plenty to keep me busy inside, like baking these amazing shortbread cookies. Although I knew these little cookies were gonna be good (sweet and spicy is just my fave!) even I was blown away by the taste! recently started yoga which is keeping me active inside, I’m not very good at it but I hope it’s at least burning off some of the delicious shortbread calories!

I love going into the town centre around the end of the week because it’s when all the market stalls are there, with lots of fresh fruit and vegetables for way cheaper than at the supermarket, and much better quality too. They also have stalls with all kinds of other things, but I don’t usually pay much attention to them. However, last month I was there and a jam and preserves stall caught my eye and I had to go have a little look. All the jams looked so yummy and I was very intrigued by some of the flavours. After a lovely conversation with the lady that runs the stall and sampling lots of delicious jams, I came away with two pots of strawberry and chili jam. Thanks Poppy’s Preserves (I did ask for a website or facebook to link to but she doesn’t have one unfortunately).
