So... my exams are officially over! (even though I've been acting like I was on holidays for the past 10 days anyway...) This is what I wore today to my Spanish exam... and to my other exams in the past few weeks. This became my default outfit - comfy, warm and quick to put on for those early mornings!
Spanish went quite well today considering my study was flicking through the textbook at midnight last night.
(JAG denim jacket - thrifted, my boyfriend's hoodie, BDG high waisted jeans - Urban Outfitters, knit turban - ASOS)
Currently reading (left to right, top to bottom):
1. STA travel brochures for Europe
2. July 2011 SHOP til you drop
3. May/June 2011 Frankie
4. Imagina - my spanish textbook which I thankfully no longer need until next semester
5. DK eyewitness travel guide to France.
6. August 2006 TaBLE magazine my nanna gave me
7. July 2011 Super food ideas
As the brochures and travel guide may indicate, yep I am planning on heading over to Europe. In six months time I will (hopefully) be packing my bags to explore the French campagne and visit the ciudades of Spain. Can't wait!
I have to admit, along with baked goods and shopping, buying magazines is another guilty pleasure of mine. I don't have a very large collection of magazines as I've always thought that they're a complete waste of money. I flick through them and read half the articles and then I'm done. Yet there's still something that compels me to buy them.... (Food magazines on the other hand I can look through a million times and still won't get bored)
The current issue of super food ideas has 10 different self saucing pudding recipes! The mocha self saucing pudding pictured in the right bottom hand corner looks so cute made in coffee cups - I think this is going to have to be next on the dessert menu!
One last photo of the dinner that I made tonight! Dahl and naan bread... This was the first time I cooked something Indian as we never have it at home. I was only planning on cooking this as a side dish but this was surprisingly satisfying so I couldn't be bothered with a main. I mostly followed this lentil dahl recipe found here but also modified it with a recipe featured in the TaBLE magazine pictured above.
As I can't even remember the last time I had dahl (if ever before) I have nothing to compare this to... it was nice but I still found the flavours a little bland - unless that was just me, my mum seemed to enjoy it!
