How are you doing? You know you are awesome right? I stumbled across this recipe on Taralynn McNitt's Blog, its flour free pancakes- super easy to make I skip with pb2 (peanut butter and blueberries) and serve with fat free yoghurt, agave nectar, and a sprinkle of crushed walnuts and cinnamon!
- 3 Egg Whites
- 1 Medium Banana
- 1/2 Cup Blueberries
- 1 Serving PB2.
- In a mixing bowl: mash up banana. I usually cut mine into little slices, then mash it up with a fork.
- Add three egg whites to the mashed banana and combine
- Heat fryingpan on medium high. Spray pan with cooking spray.
- Pour half the mixture onto the frying pan, top with blueberries and cover.
- Cook each side until golden brown. When you flip the pancake it needs to be really fast!
- Top each pancake with 1 tbsp of PB2 powdered peanut butter.

Arriving in Baku in the early hours of the morning we went off to explore this up and coming cosmpolitan city. With a bustling old town full of shisha smoking locals playing batgammon and hand made persian rugs, the smell of pine and spices envelope the air.
Baku's rich green forest landscape felt like the perfect backdrop for a red sweater and navy cardigan. I love to string Katie Mullally's new charm pendants on different chains for a whismical edge. And the FLASHTRASHGIRL spike bracelet has become my everyday favourtite!
1. Peg Charm £69.00 2. Key Charm £69.00 3. Stud Bracelet £15
An oil rich country, the promenade in front of the old town is like a mini Knightsbridge lined with designer boutiques that face the Caspian Sea. Baku also has a thiriving cultural scene thanks primarily to Leyla Aliyeva the President of Azerbaijan's daughter. We visited the Baku Museum of Modern Art (below) with Polly Morgan and Matt Collinshaw, they have a children's gallery in the museum which I tried to convice Matt was not done by actual children but merely a child's perspective..he was sadly not fooled!!!

ALL OUR LOVE,
ah St Tropez the Riviera enclave that lands on the essential summer stop off list. All glorious tans, dancing at Le Cav and late night swimming at Hotel Biblos before sneaking back to boats for parties. Which leave's one totally dis-orientated in the style stakes. So when I found myself with 1 hour to pack I cut it down to the basics.
1) Breton Stripes- I swapped traditional blue and red for pastel violet and yellow which was a pretty cute match with Club Cinquante-Cinq Table cloths. Street Princess's Cute Bracelets look great for a beach lunch
RILEY BRACELETS £30 Make it an Arm Party SHOP NOW
2) Graphic Under The Sea Prints- Sea- Salt chic and great for standing out in the evening, team a bright dress with Ocean Cool accessories that will spark conversations like Catherine Zoraida & Tatty Devine
SEAHORSE WOODEN NECKLACE £27.50
3) Hats- You can either be chic and go for a wide brimmed which is probably the best option of if like me you're all into Nicki Minaj & MIA and want to wear a hip hop hat in a pseudo ironic way then..YOU CAN! I completed this look with these UBER RAD gold hoops from the one and only Bling Deenie
Gold Chain Earrings £30! Light to Wear with a tough luxe edge!
Filed Under: Uncategorized
Stand out in the pool or on the beach with these super cool one of a kind pieces, that will lend every outfit a signature fashion edge!
Clari Hoops £62.50 18k Gold Plated
Hoops are an essential holiday accessory. Day or night these gorgeous Gold Bolt Hoops from Super Cool designer of the moment Alice Menter are the perfect way to finish off a stylish outfit!
Anabel Campbell Fuschi Navajo Bracelet £155
This is my go to bangle for Summer. Looks chic alone for the evening and great stacked with lots of other bracelets and rings for girly cool style in the day!
Zoe & Morgan Gold Tribal Shield Ring £129
If you're going to eat ice cream then you need to be wearing statement rings. Pool side or on a shopping break set your fashion credentials high and catch that guy's eye with a Tribal Ring from Zoe & Morgan. One you''ll wear forever!

Favourite Fashion Designer: Ralph Lauren, I love the looks you can experiment with their newest safari collection.
Favourite Blog: I love keeping up with Bipling, there's always something new and quirky to keep myself entertained.
Favourite Magazines: Esquire, GQ, Tatler and LBF.
What I'm watching: Dexter is one of my favs for the clever direction and the constant guessing, however guilty pleasures must be fed with big brother. Two broke girls is also hilarious.
Right now I'm listening to: The Special K's are one of my new bands of the moment, though right now I am obsessed with Jay Z and Rihanna's set at hackney weekend. Ben Howard and Lana Del Rey are perfect for chilling to.
My favourite kind of jewellery is: I enjoy wearing shiny things that tend to clash a little with my outfit, this gives off a more edgy vibe rather. I particular Love contrasting my maroon bracelets with silver and turquoise
This summer I'm looking forward to: BBQs, garden parties, not lugging around an umbrella and coat, two weeks in the Caribbean and going to my mate's gig.
I can't wait to wear: Shorts, my beach jewellery and my new ray-bans!

Where to stay: If you have have friends out here or your friends have friends you could stay with I'd definitely recommend doing that. You can emerge yourself into life out here and you don't have to wait for room service! Otherwise you may as well stay at the Mandarin Oriental ( the original one of course) Although Amber restaurant in the Landmark is very good, if i do say so myself!
Where to shop: Hong Kong is all about shopping. Shopping. Shopping. Shopping. Buying things is pretty much the life-blood of every day life here. Skip over the huge Luxury Branded areas, although be sure to check out the best department store in the world, Lane Crawford ( as well as Joyce & OnPedder, IT) and head out to Causeway bay where you'll find loads of little malls that have local HK designers as well as a lot of Korean Fashion. TST has some great little malls too, many of which I have just stumbled into by chance which is the best way to do it really.
Museums + Art: Soho has a plethora of art galleries you should have a wonder round and out in Sha Tin, the HK heritage musuem is a must. They often have fashion exhbitions on ( Right Now YSL,Oh I mean Saint Laurent Paris!) and theres a great little temple near by with Fortune Tellers if your feeling auspicious!
Where to Eat: HK is not short of immesnly luxurious restaurants the best in the world in my opnion. So save your cash and blow it all on meals at Pierre, Aqua, Amber, Island Tang & Zuma. During the day to recover from last night's spending, delve into local dim sum and noodle shops or pop into MIX for a juice and wrap. You must try the Egg Tarts and stock up on Candy from Okashi Land.
Can't wait to reveal what we are working on out here! But for now leave some comments about your HK tips or any questions and Ill try get back to you!
