31.03 outfits, easter biscuits and life

Hello, I hope everyone is having a good week so far? This might turn in to a bit of an epic post, so apologies in advance!

Yesterday saw me gravitating towards a lot of blue for my outfit, I’m not sure why, it isn’t a colour I am instantly drawn to, but it also gave me a chance to re-experiment with the double denim approach.




I guess it’s a semi nautical look as well? I’m not sure, I did remember part way through the day why I don’t wear these shorts often; they button up both sides at the front and are a nightmare for toilet breaks!

Today I reverted back to my more typical style, not at all weather appropriate as it is still bitterly cold and miserable outside, but it’s almost April, I’m dressing for spring regardless…




As you’ve probably noticed by now, Wednesday is my typical baking day…with Easter on Sunday I went seasonal and made traditional Easter biscuits, which are a real family favourite. These smell incredible when baking with the spices and dried fruits!

You can find the recipe I used here
when it came to adding the spice, I was very liberal…so I hope they are still edible! I used approx a tsp of mixed spice, and a further tsp of cinnamon.



I couldn’t resist breaking away from the traditional round shape of the biscuit when I re-discovered some bunny shaped cookie cutters at the back of my baking supply drawer!

And finally, on a serious note,
my appointments Monday led to me having to make a difficult commitment in terms of treatment for my eating disorder,
I won’t say more than that for now as I’m unsure as to when things will happen etc,
but mentally my head is all over the place at the moment, and so, please forgive me if I don’t get around to commenting on your blogs as much as I usually do…it’s hard to focus and find the words.
Silly to apologise? Perhaps, but I have always prided myself on keeping up to date with everyone who takes the time to visit my little blog and leaves such wonderful words for me, so I do have a sense of guilt going on
*hides away embarrased*

Much love all

  49. oh dont be embarrassed! and yes, definitely dont say sorry. im proud of you! you do whatever you need to to get better, we’re behind you πŸ™‚

    on a less serious note, those bunny-shaped cookie cutters are freakin awesome.


  50. Oh Laura, sending my support. Can you tell? And a virtual hug ; )

    On a superficial note: just got in and my *quick* answer to your quick question: (as I wrote it out on my own post)

    The Kate Kanzier sizes are pretty much spot on. I don’t think they use half sizes, but they didn’t particularly run small or large. What we can’t get over is how COMFORTABLE they are. And you can always exchange it if it’s the wrong size.

    (If you want – hold off, I’ll do a post on it soon – I’ll show which pairs I got. I really recommend them, they’re great & I can’t believe how low cost they are. It’s because while things like the insoles are real leather, a lot of it – including the ‘suede’ – are faux. But they’re the most realistic faux leather & suede I’ve seen. I LOVE my buttery non-perforated cream/celery pair, and the other are kind of orangey rust with perforations… will add it to tonight’s post! ) xx

  51. hope everything will be ok!
    love your double denim outfit,and the biscuits look so yummy!

  52. Mmmm, I may have to try out that biscuit recipe!

    Put yourself first hun – we don’t mind if you don’t comment or whatever, as long as you’re focusing on getting yourself better πŸ™‚

  53. You look great in double denim. I’ve seen very few people pull it off, and you’ve done a wonderful job.

    I hope you really take care of yourself. Just pay attention to yourself.

  54. I love both outfits, just lovely. And don’t worry about anyone but yourself! WE will all understand, we hope you just get better soon. xxxxxxx

  55. Lovely boots!

    Take care of yourself petal x

  56. Lovely looks as usual!! I give you a big big hug…

  57. nice denime blouse and i adore the floatly top and the bunny cutters ^^

  58. I absolutely adore the feminine blouse, floral skirt, and fuchsia tights in the second group of three photos. Your Easter biscuits look scrumptious. I apologize in advance for saying this because it might seem I’m nagging: You are quite thin and cigarettes are horible for your tooth colour and health, other peoples air, your own long term health and that of those around you. You’ll find that once you’ve quit everything will taste even better. Sorry. Just had to say it. Love your blog, fashion and cooking. You do look good.

  59. The bunny cookies are adorable!!!

  60. oh sweet thing, no apologies please. you need to take care of yourself, first and foremost. everyone else will still be here if you need to take a break for your health… please take care of yourself.

    i don’t have an ed but i haven’t been able to eat for months due to depression and my clothing is falling off of me, and everyone is so concerned, i feel so unhealthy and horrible.

    please get yourself well. sending you lots of love and healing energy love.


  61. Love your bunny biscuits and the pink tights really rock! Good luck with your treatment – you are such a cute girl!

  62. Oh, I love both outfits!


  63. I would read and love your blog even if you never read/commented on mine once. I like the first outfit a lot, I would try it with some denim cut offs to give it a casual vibe, but you pull off the denim on denim well.

  64. thank you, sweetheart!

    i love the first outfit on you… and those cookies look too good.

  65. lovely skirt!!! I really want some cookies now! xoxo

  66. YOU are much more important than any ‘ol comment you could leave on my blog. Take as much time as you need. We’ll be here when you come back.


  67. E

    First, I think you are beautiful girl and I hope everything is going well with you. I think it’s very brave of you to discuss it on your blog, too. Second, I love your boots in the first look so much. The laces in the back are what footwear dreams are made of.

  68. what’s better than bunny shaped food ? uh nothing . :}

    thanks for all your love and support <3

  69. I love all the layering, and the boots? Those are gorgeous.
    As for the hard stuff, I’m so sorry you’re struggling with this. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt, though, that you are strong, and you will get through this. I know it.

  70. I really like your boots. Your floral skirt matches those leggings very well.

  71. I am seeing lots of denim… Very comfy but stylish.

  72. i am glad you are dressing for spring…i am doing the same despite the cold and the rain here in portland.

    i love the bunny shaped cookie idea…i will have to make them soon!

  73. Denim on denim is so hard to do, but you managed to do it very well. Your biscuits seem like a crispy version of Hot Cross Buns (which I think are a British creation). Even if they aren’t British, they are still yummy and I’ll bet your biscuits are too. Laura, my very best wishes and thoughts are with you for a spectacular treatment and recovery.

    Take care,


  74. Good luck with everything..look after yourself first…! πŸ™‚ Also what lovely outfits as always ! x

  75. The top look is so great! I love it πŸ™‚

  76. Love the bright tights and those biscuits look delish!

    Best of wishes to you, and I sincerely hope your treatment goes well.

    xo, becs

  77. I hope you are doing well, darling. So sorry about your troubles, you seem to have a good head on your shoulders though πŸ™‚

    I did groceries yesterday and picked up the ingredients for your cheese biscuits, making them over the Easter weekend for my family. Will let you know the reviews!

  78. Hope everything works out well for you lovely. Keep strong.

  79. Mmm those look delicious! Gorgeous outfits πŸ™‚

  80. Oooh I just saw from your post below that I won the competition! I never win things, except from you… I love your competitions πŸ˜‰
