The Libertines at Alexandra Palace

Last weekend the Libertines played at Alexandra Palace on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I only knew about them after they had separated and even though they sometimes would get together and played at festivals, we hadn't had the chance to see them, until Saturday.

We've seen Peter Doherty 3 times, as well as Babyshambles once and now The Libertines, which was really amazing. Playing all their classic songs with Carl and Pete sharing a mic was a sight I didn't think I would get to see, all while getting squashed and suffocated in the crowd haha. 

They will be touring around Europe and hinted at playing new songs when they come back in the UK.

The Easiest Pancake Recipe

A quick and easy American Style Wholemeal Pancake and Milkshake Recipe

As part of the #EarlybirdChallenge I have teamed up with Free Office Finder to talk to you about the benefits of getting up early. As well as having the opportunity to be more productive during the day, you will have more time to enjoy a nice and healthier homemade breakfast.

I must admit that getting up early can be a bit of a struggle sometimes for me, as I turn pretty much into Grumpy the dwarf if I haven't had anything to eat first thing in the morning. Breakfast is such an important meal and I never go without it - in fact I make sure I never skip any meal - but I definitely won't go anywhere without having had something to get me through the day. 

Today I want to share with you the easiest pancake and milkshake recipe ever: for the pancakes you only need 3 ingredients, and 2 for the milkshake; plus they only take minutes to prepare.

For the pancakes you will need: 
1 cup of wholemeal self-raising flour
1 cup of milk
1 egg

Just mix the 3 ingredients together until you get a smooth batter and pour onto a pre-heated pan with a bit of butter. When the mix starts bubbling carefully flip the pancake and cook the other side until golden brown. Top with your favourite ingredients - I used butter and honey. The mix yields about 4 medium sized pancakes.

For the milkshake you will need:
1 cup of milk
1 small banana

For this you only need to blend the 2 ingredients together and then serve. I garnished mine with a bit of ground cinnamon.

See? I told you it was easy (as well as delicious) and better than the shop bought versions that contain lots of added sugar. You can replace milk for a non-dairy version (I used soy milk) and you can use white self raising flour as well but the wholemeal version contains more fiber and is better for digestion. 

Will you be trying these recipes?

Personalized Photo Magnets

Print Personalized Photo Magnets online on PickStick and a 25% discount code.

One thing that people don't seem to do anymore is print pictures, as we constantly upload them onto social media, but there is something quite charming about having a physical reminder of a special moment you've shared with the people you love. 

On PickStick you can upload pictures from your PC, phone or even Facebook and have them printed as mini magnets with a glossy finish, which makes a really nice gift for birthdays, anniversaries or Christmas.

Something that I would recommend before sending your pictures for printing is to make sure that they are bright enough as when they are printed they can come out a bit dark, and also be careful when you separate the magnets from the pre-cut sheet to avoid damaging them.

You can get a sheet of 9 magnets with free worldwide delivery for £9.50/$14.99 though if you use the code IHIN25 you get 25% off ;)

Reading | The Kate Moss Story

The Kate Moss Story book by Chris Roberts

One day, while casually having a look in The Works, I found The Kate Moss Story by Chris Roberts, and it had been reduced to a mere £1.99, so as an avid Kate Moss worshiper I could not pass it up. 

This book is an unofficial guide to all things Moss: starting with her childhood to how she was discovered, her evolution from new face to supermodel, her partying ways to her romances with Johnny Depp, Jefferson Hack, Peter Doherty and Jamie Hince; complete with candid, runway and campaign photographs. 

If you are a fan of Kate the Great (as am I) or know someone who is then this will make a great gift/addition to your Moss shrine.

Find The Kate Moss Story in The Works.

Do you love Moss the Boss?

Sportswear to Match your Personal Style

Sportswear to Match your Personal Style with ILU Fitwear

When you shop for sportswear, whether you do yoga, run or go to the gym, pretty much every jogger, tank top and jacket look the same, which is a shame considering that when we dress for everyday life, we don't all look the same (nor do we want to). 

A couple of weeks ago ILU Fitwear contacted me and sent me the ILU Lace Leggings pictured above. 
What I like about these leggings is that not only they are comfortable and the fabric is very soft, but they also have a really feminine lace panel on the side, and the logo is printed in a very subtle way.

They feel like normal leggings only softer because of the design and purpose, so they're comfortable enough for me to do my ballet inspired exercise routine that I try to do at least a couple of times every week.
