I’m not a big drinker but when I do fancy a drink its always gin. I like the bitterness of the juniper and blood orange is just a perfect partner for the gin especially along with a sugary herbal syrup. So a cheeky g and t is a fav for me this month.

Talking of things I’ve been loving I wanted to share another couple of my favourites this month. First of all I think I have a new food blog love which I always do. Our food stories is an exquisitely beautiful blog written , styled and photographed by Nora and Laura who are exceptionally talented. The recipes are gluten free and vegetarian I love all their gathering scenes with a table styled full of delicious food and stunning props. A podcast I find my self eagerly awaiting the next episode of is the new mindful creative by Rachel Korinek of two loves studio I love all Rachel’s work and her podcast is really honest, easy to relate to and inspiring. I  also cant wait for the release of  Rachel’s new course lightroom magic which looks super exciting if your into photography.
