I'M LEAVING ON A JET PLANE

Tomorrow night, my husband, children and I are heading off to London to visit the Queen. No really, we're heading over there to visit my husband's parents, relatives and friends. We'll be away for a couple of weeks and I've decided to take a blogging holiday so I'll be back the second week of August.

Until then, to see what I'm up to, follow me on Instagram.

SEASONAL EATS FOR JULY: 5 RECIPES USING RASPBERRIES

For those of you who read this blog regularly, you know that I love raspberries. They've always been my favourite fruit. When I was little, you could only buy them in season, mostly in July, so I had to wait a year between treats. The way I used to love eating them was in a bowl with a sprinkling of sugar and cream poured over them.

I've rounded up 5 different recipes using raspberries that are on my must-make list. What's your favourite fruit?

1. Raspberry-elderflower sorbet from Donna Hay

3. Raspberry-almond scones, Creme de la Crumb

5. Raspberry cheesecake mess, Sainsbury's Magazine

LOLA

Attention friends, there's a new eco start-up in town and I think it's going to change everything. Lola sells100% cotton tampons in a customized assortment delivered to your door on a subscription basis.

Although the FDA doesn't require that tampon boxes label content ingredients, Lola tampons disclose everything on the box. Bonus points: the packaging is beautiful, minimalistic and discreet enough to display in your bathroom.

Another perfect example of form meeting function.
