it may be said that i am developing an a-line skirt problem, however i am not ready to admit this yet.
this suede number is from sheinside.com i would suggest going up two sizes as it comes up a little on the small side.
i wish i wasn't so lazy with my hair so i could curl it like this everyday, but to be honest the 20 minutes in bed in the morning is preferable!
i wore this outfit to the vogue 100 exhibition which is super beautiful, if not laid out a bit funny!
there is a new vlog up if you fancy catching up on my latest shenanigans!

richmond park in the sunshine is one of the most beautiful places, we went on a slightly windy adventure last weekend.
walking round the park always makes me wish we had a dog and sometimes we accidentally stalk peoples dog so we can stroke them, don't tell me we are the only ones who do this....
and of course we vlogged it, i've popped the video below!

dare i say it but spring is in the air, i may have been a bit too keen by cracking out the leather jacket this early as its still below ten degrees...
i've recently become a convert to big scarves, although they don't help my 'neck dreadlock' situtation they do keep you toasty warm and most of them are super soft like the one i am sporting here!
i am so happy that its sunny in london at the moment, it is so beautiful when the city is full of sunshine.

right lets get on with the recipe shall we! i
 made four wraps from this amount but i like mine nice and full which makes it the messiest but best way to eat. now i've never been very good at following recipes so you can give or take a little with this one as it nice and simple

you will need:
400g diced lamb
one small chilli
a clove of garlic
a chorizo sausage
half a cucumber
half a packet of feta cheese
natural yogurt
paprika 
sprinach leaves (or any other salad leaves)
4 wraps (i like wholemeal ones)
a few glugs of olive oil

firstly finely chop the garlic and chilli, fry in olive oil of a minute and then add the lamb. cook the lamb for about six to seven minutes, basically till its browned, everybody likes theirs cooked to different pinkness. 
get a bowl and mix a few sprinkles of paprika with the natural yogurt, this gives it a little kick. you can spread the yogurt over the wrap before you start to load it up or you can pop in onto top afterwards.
chop up the feta, chorizo and cucumber into small chunks. heat the wrap for 30 thirty seconds in the microwave, chuck everything in and enjoy!
you may also want to have a glass of rose with it but thats just my view on things....

*the cost of the ingredients was covered by Bolsover Cruise Club but love of mediterranean food and adventures are all my own

i will start with how mother flipping cold is it in england! 
you will correct in thinking i am wearing two coats as it was so bloody cold and windy on the day we shot this, we vlogged the day of this and the whole audio is pretty much wind! 
this bag is my new obsession, i was so sad that my beautiful purple topshop bag broke so i spotted this bag boy in the joy sale and made it came home with me, admittedly it does match my oyster card holder so i feel like an organised grown up (not really, but i can pretend....)

i've linked our latest vlog below if you fancy catching up on our latest shenanigans, hope you've been enjoying them as much as we enjoy making them!
