As soon as I saw these super cute miniature pumpkins I fell in love with them! 
I'm a huge fan of individual/mini sized portions, so I couldn't resist making this incredibly simple, but oh so delicious recipe.  
 Easy to prepare in advance, it makes a great, impressive looking desert to serve to guests on Halloween.

serve with vanilla ice cream & a sprinkle of cinnamon

And finally...

For me, what could be better than a Louis Vuitton pumpkin on Halloween!

 Wishing all my lovely followers, both old & new a 
Happy & Fun Filled Halloween.

Layering Up

With the sudden dip in temperatures here in the UK, I've started layering up to stay warm. Still keeping it stylish, I love the Western feel to this outfit, wearing double denim layered with my fur vest & my favourite boots. 
For a change, I fancied red lips & mat red nails to complement the look.

I was wearing...
faux fur vest Warehouse
denim shirt & necklace Zara
jeans Topshop
bag Prada
sunglasses Marc Jacobs
watch Rolex
bracelet Miumiu
ring YSL
nail varnish Chanel Pirate with Mat Top Coat

Feeling the love for the Oasis AW12 range at House Of Fraser
Oasis is a brand I've always bought into, so I thought I'd kick off this week by sharing some of my favourite autumn picks from their range, based around one of my must-have autumn colour combo's. 
You will have already seen me wearing these colours, along with my Oasis leopard print scarf in my last outfit post here!

Cocktails At Frankie And Bennys

Thursday, 25 October 2012

by Adele

When the lovely people at Frankie And Bennys asked me if I wanted to try some cocktails from their new cocktail menu I was happy to oblige!
Those that know me & have followed my blog for a while will already know how partial I am to a few cocktails!

On Saturday night, we headed to our local Frankie & Bennys. There was a great buzz about the place, as it was really busy - I always love walking into somewhere with a good atmosphere!

There was a broad choice on the cocktail menu, from seasoned favourites like the Cosmopolitan, to new cocktails like the Espresso Martini. All cocktails were reasonably priced. Mocktails (non alcoholic) were also available.

 My absolute favourite cocktail is a Mojito, so naturally I started with a Mojito as for me, this would be the ultimate gauge on how good the cocktails were.
Unfortunately, it missed the mark slightly, mainly as the flavour was just one-dimensional, I could only taste the lime, not the mint, the sweetness from the sugar or the alcohol.

Other cocktails we tried were the Bramble (Bombay Sapphire gin, fresh lemon juice, sugar and Chambord black-raspberry liqueur) & the Strawberry Daiquiri, which in my opinion were much better made.

We also had an enjoyable meal. If you don't know Frankie & Bennys, it's a no frills Italian/American eaterie with an American diner feel to it, serving pizzas/pasta/steaks/burgers etc.

The food was good & wholesome, in fact the portions were really plentiful so I could only manage 2 courses. Ian had a gorgeous Sticky Toffee Pudding with vanilla ice cream for dessert.

Despite how busy it was, we received excellent service both at the bar & during our meal!

Thanks Frankie & Bennys for a fab evening!

Have you ever eaten at a Frankie & Bennys?

Have a fab Thursday Lovelies
