WHISK

Whisk is a hole in the wall type of an eatery in South Miami - always full and super popular with locals. The owners are from South Carolina and the menu is famous for its Southern favourites: fried green tomatoes, grits, corn bread, fried buttermilk chicken etc. etc. Not a place for dieters that's for sure!

Avocado and shrimp salad was simply delicious!

Crispy brussels sprouts were amazing! I'm sure even better with a little bit of cheese on top.

Their famous burger.

Classic shrimp and grits.

LIGHT PROBLEMS


I mentioned that we need a new light above the dining table at our holiday home. Now you can see why... We've had this "temporary" lamp hanging over it for the past couple of years. You know one of those things in your house that you just never get round to doing. (There are others too, believe me!) What kind of a light would you choose? I always thought that I'd like a chandelier but I'm going off that idea. All in all I would like to tweak the interior to be a bit warmer and less glossy. I must be getting old!

MY NEW FAV EGGS


I can't cook. These days I make food quite often but it's all so simple that I wouldn't class it as real cooking. The biggest reason for not having learned how to cook more complex meals is that I actually like to eat simple food and so does the rest of my family. I also eat out so often that when I'm at home I want to keep my meals very light and clean. 

Eggs is something I eat a lot. I try to include protein and greens in my breakfast and an omelette or scrambled eggs is a very easy and quick way to do that. This is my favourite scrambled eggs right now: two organic eggs, a juicy and ripe tomato chopped up, plenty of chopped up fresh spinach, a spoonful of goats cheese plus plenty of black pepper and Himalayan salt. Stir well and cook into a scramble or an omelette. The goats cheese gives it a great taste and a slightly creamier texture.

EASTER SUNDAY


I hope you all have a lovely Easter weekend behind you! This is what our Easter Sunday looked like. 




Some dippy eggs at grandmother's house to start the day.


And then an egg hunt in our garden. 


This little one was again satisfied after finding just one… well until she had finished it and it was time to find more!



Sharing is caring. Like Little M keeps on teaching her little sister. Often with very little effect… 



France hasn't been sunny or warm in the last few days but it was a lovely Easter with family and friends regardless!

VILLA DECOR INSPIRATION


Some Easter Sunday inspiration in a format of pictures of my friend's beautiful, newly renovated and decorated holiday villa. We're in a desperate need of a light above our dining table and I'm quite liking the idea of something in this style.

WHAT I WORE: SLIM-FIT BOYFRIENDS


I got these Rag & Bone slim-fit boyfriend jeans a year ago but only wore them once until I thought I had somehow managed to loose them… So I was so happy to find them waiting for me in my laundry bin here in France! I find that the skinnier versions are more for me than the actual boyfriend jeans and these particular ones are the perfect fit. You can still find them at least in here.


Leather Jacket: CTRL You
Top: Helmut Lang
Jeans: Rag & Bone
Ballerinas: Bloch
Bag: Chanel
Sunglasses: Miu Miu

SOUTH OF FRANCE SUNDAY


Happy Easter everyone! These pictures were taken last Sunday when we spent an afternoon on my favourite public beach in this area. You access it through an arch at the Antibes Marina, Port Vauban. It's normally less crowded than that road side beaches and has lovely views. 

Weather isn't quite this good this weekend but as long as there's no rain to ruin our chocolate egg hunt we'll be okay!
