Weekly Love: Week 127

I turned 25 on Wednesday, and as I celebrate a quarter of a century I want to share my next big venture with you all. Some of you may already have seen it on social media, but let me introduce you to Glendon Studios: a new, Pinterest-focused social media consultancy I have been working on to help small businesses and lifestyle influencers harness the power of Pinterest to grow their audience and spread the word! Be sure to check out our blog for handy marketing tips, (and follow us on Instagram for the same) see what services we offer, or get in touch if you would like some guidance on how to grow your Pinterest presence, or you'd like to hire someone to manage your page so you can focus on creating great products and killer content!

1. Birthday lunching at The Compasses Inn. | 2. Picking out birthday pastries at Gail's Bakery on Fulham High Street - their still warm brioche filled with custard and blueberries are truly excellent. | 3. Sorting out my birthday blooms into vases (sensing a theme here?!) | 4. Making hot cross buns for the first time in our new family kitchen (see the tour on my Instagram Highlights!) | 5. Spring flowers brightening my walks through the city. | 6. Mummy daughter lunching at Deakins in Canterbury (review coming soon!)

Recipe: One Pan Greek Lamb Meatballs with Orzo & Feta

I've only ever eaten terrible food in Greece. I've been twice on school trips, and the problem with these albeit amazing experiences around the classical world (I studied classics right up to my second year of undergrad) is that they were highly budgeted. I remember after one trip we had a reunion dinner in Canterbury (in the little Greek restaurant that is now Oscar & Bentley, but if you're after great Greek food in Canterbury I adore Zeus) and we talked about how much better the Greek food was in England, than in Greece! However, the bright, Mediterranean flavours, and some fantastic Greek food I've had here in the UK has totally won me over, to the point where I actually love cooking Greek food at home, ignoring what I've actually eaten there!

9 Of My Favourite Independent Shops in Canterbury

This post was created in partnership with Canterbury BID. I spend so much time telling you that you should hop on the High Speed from St. Pancras and enjoy lunch at some of my favourite places to eat in Canterbury (you need to try the egg sandwiches at The Naughty Egg, my favourite Greek food is at Zeus (forget anywhere Greek I've tried in London!) and I'm still obsessed with The Skinny Kitchen, though great news they're opening in Boxpark Croydon soon!) but I don't spend nearly enough time telling you where you should check out once you're there. I may live in Zone 2, but I actually do most of my shopping when it comes to gifts and home ware in Canterbury independents. So today, I thought I'd share 9 of my local favourites!

Weekly Meal Plan #6: Make-ahead Lunches

Something a little different for this fortnights Weekly Meal Plan, I've decided instead of planning your dinners every weeknight, this week I thought starting on Sunday night I'd plan your make-ahead lunches for the week ahead. You can of course eat all of these for dinner (anything can be made night time suitable with the addition of a good glass of wine, I've found), so by following this easy plan you have both a week of great dinners ahead of you, and you get to be the smug person with the fancy packed lunch every day next week!
