Weekly Love: Week 141

I know I'm probably one of the last people to the party, but if you happen to have not have read Gone Girl yet, and you have not seen the film and therefore don't know how it ends, I urge you to pick up a copy. I picked up a paperback copy in Sainsbury's last month with the intention to read it on the train, but in all honestly it was one of the best, and most surprising books I've read since leaving school over three years ago now. It is beautifully crafted with suspense and unexpected twists and turns, you'd be doing yourself a disservice if you did not at least try a few chapters. But I promise you you won't *just* be able to read a few chapters! 
Weekly Love 211114[1]
1. Luxurious orange blossom Sunday afternoon bath time with my absolutely heady & divine smelling Jo Malone Orange Blossom Candle the lovely team at House of Fraser sent me, and Philosophy's (sadly discontinued) Orange Blossom bubble bath. | 2. The first little preview from my Christmas Kitchen, look out for all the recipes I have planned both here and in my columns, starting December 1st! | 3. Burgers and local Whitstable Bay lager at The Shakespeare in Canterbury. | 4. Every year Mummy and I buy two decorations together for our family Christmas tree. Tuesday saw us making our selections in Selfridges. | 5. Chorizo, onions and spinach from the bottom of my fridge, fried up with some eggs and about to be dumped on toast by way of an impromptu lunch. | 6. Monty the penguin's relatives being totally adorable in the John Lewis windows on Oxford Street.

Homemade Chorizo Baked Beans
Just a short one this week, but before I sign off I just want to share with you a great breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner dish from my 'Student Suppers' column for Wozedu: Homemade Chorizo Baked Beans on Toast. You probably already have most of the ingredients in your cupboard anyway, and it will help fill any holes in your meal planning in the coming week!

What have you been enjoying this week, and what do you have planned for the weekend? I'm splitting my time between London and Canterbury this weekend, lots planned in the weeks getting even busier leading up to Christmas!


  1. Thanks for the mention Rachel! I would really recommend Uyen's cooking class I learnt so much! Great round up, I am going to have to make that snood! I love the look of those eggs and chorizo too - I know what I'm making for breakfast tomorrow!

  2. Great post - that orange blossom candle sounds divine!
