I know, very behind the times, but only just got an iPhone (yippee!) and my obsession with Instagram is already getting bad...

Plum and almond tart

Very easy to make (especially if you buy your own pastry - I actually made it which is also pretty straightforward if you have a magimix!) A delicious pudding for a dinner party, particularly during this odd winter/spring weather we are having! The recipe I used was from a cookbook my sister got at the Grange cooking course, but there are plenty similar recipes online, such as this one by Jamie Oliver.

The Delaunay

The Delaunay, located near Covent Garden, is a restaurant that is still on it's starting legs - although this is hardly noticeable with it's incredibly slick operation. This haunt was set up by the infamous restauranteur duo Christopher Corbin and Jeremy King. Also founders of the Wolseley and the Ivy, Corbin and King know how to attract a multitude of diners. The Delaunay has a relaxed ambiance, and delicious food at a reasonable price. I started with a yummy butternut squash salad, mixed with chestnuts and quails eggs. For main I had plaice in bread crumbs with the best chips I've had! Definitely to visit if you want something a little more upmarket for a good price.

Folk, Conduit Street

The perfect store to find your spring outfit - Folk is located on Conduit Street, near Oxford Circus. The London based label has a Scandinavian feel to it, and consequently stocks other brands such as Acne. Two shops next door, one mens and the other womens, have a clean and modern vibe, with not just clothes displayed, but accessories, shoes and beauty products. I love the printed geometric prints on the structured shirts - definitely DIY-able! Slightly out of my price range as a student, but well worth a visit to their store or online here.
