this cake, (good heavens that photography. so sorry. it's actually awesome in its badness.) but I want to do something new. Maybe we'll just pour some IKEA elderflower syrup over some sparkling water and call it good....

Cool Book of the Week: 'Lulu and Pip' by Nina Gruener and Stephanie Rausser is the follow up to a darling darling DARLING book about a child and her beloved doll that I featured a couple of years ago, 'Kiki and Coco in Paris'. This one (with another magical doll creation from the wildly talented Jess Brown!) tells the story of another little girl and her dolly, who go on a camping adventure and discover the fun to be had in the great outdoors - in contrast to their everyday big city life. Both books feature vibrant, generously sized photography that perfectly matches the text of the story. I can't stress to you how cute these books are, and the camping theme of this one makes it a perfect read for summer, which officially starts next week.
