Pumpkin Carving

Uncategorized

Hello! I hope you’re having a great week and are excited about the current Halloween season (I certainly am like always!).

There is something really epic about Halloween for me as every year I get crazy excited to celebrate it…

Admittedly, I don’t look like someone that enjoys gothic horror…but I promise you I do haha

I think it’s because I’m in love with anything and everything gothic, eerie, dark and spooky. Movies like ‘Van Helsing (2004)’ and ‘Sleepy Hollow’ are some of my favourite films to watch and this time of year I have an excuse to watch them!!

I decided to calve some pumpkins this year (the small one turned out cuter than the other haha).

It’s super messy and time consuming but honestly a huge laugh and a lot of fun!

I’ve noticed a lot of people in the UK doing it this year which I’m happy about as the UK isn’t that big on Halloween usually!

My boyfriend came round a few days ago and we also baked some Halloween pumpkin biscuits together which was a lot of fun ~ he also wants to calve a pumpkin so I’ve bought two more for us to do together in the week (including a stencil kit this time as that orange pumpkin turned out to be a massive failure)…

My bf wasn’t happy I put sprinkles on ‘his’ biscuit …

The German Gymnasium, London

Uncategorized

Back in May of 2019 I visited a beautiful restaurant in Kings Cross, London while visiting a friend who was living in the city at the time. The restaurant was named the ‘German Gymnasium’ and sold German inspired dishes. Even though it was more than a year ago, it was such a great experience that I want to post about it on here so that I can remember it in the future…

The food was incredible and we were both extremely full on our way out of the restaurant to make our theatre reservation for ‘The Comedy About a Bank Robbery’.

As me and my friend are both vegetarian, we had the same starter and main (as we usually end up doing!). We both had the soup to start followed by the ‘Schupfnudeln and Seasonal Young Vegetables’.

The restaurant was very elegant and pretty with a grand piano and seating over two levels. The perfect spot for a working/ business lunch!
