Pile up the Pancakes

A week ago I was drowning my diet in Pancakes, maple syrup and fruit. Well Lemon. & Sugar. One heck of a cheat day - but as they say, 'It's all about balance', shame beam always was my worst apparatus.
We had my younger brother's pal and Chef in training (who wanted a mention) helping, but essentially still the tried and true, holy trinity of Milk, Eggs, Plain flour (In ratio 3,2,1), that make this classic hard to beat.
For those more interested in the Scotch than the Crepe style pancake, I have a Recipe Post for that, and it happens to be on the healthier side. Just think of all that pancake tossing, the calories right away.












Why is it we don't have Pancakes more often?



> This feast concluded a truly good day, when I actually felt semi normal!
We booked our Summer holiday! Sun, Sea, Sand and Crete come July. Spot of shopping, and said sugar overload. We got up to a lot, in my standards, this past week - but hopefully with this one, the productiveness will continue, and filter into my Blog too.

But David Tenant, you really have redeemed/justified your handing in of the Tardis key - You and Olivia Colman restore my faith in detective duos.

Beauty | Salut to St.Valentine

Whether pro or against the allotted day for love, what makeup lover would turn down an opportunity to justify, a play with makeup. Reds and Pinks spring to mind, or on the contrary, a time to let the natural beauty shine through. I took inspo from them both; fresh face, with a new take on wearing your heart on your sleeve, whilst making the most of matchy matchy, with manicure and lips.
