It’s taken me exactly one month to find the courage to take baby Adeline out for an adventure. And we made it count. A five hour car ride in “Bradley” the Mini-Cooper led us to Harrogate to mark the start of the #CFGExtraordinaryJourney, a partnership with @taylors and @creatingforgood along with 7 other creatives.

There I learned that the Yorkshire air does wonders for an unusually cranky newborn and that the @ruddingparkhotel is a remarkable place to stay and especially inviting for families with small children.

I found that being a new mom, while overwhelming, doesn’t mean I have to completely lose my individual self like I feared. It was being with likeminded friends, new and old, such as @mondomulia, @hannahargyle, @circleofpines, @theslowtraveler, @rosiefoodie, @allthatisshe to take up the challenge to find new inspiration and ideas. The @creatingforgood workshop led by @jessonthames and @belleannee on Master Storytellers gave us food for thought on the different paths we as content creators can take to craft an engaging narrative while staying true to our own vision. It was the perfect presentation to prepare us for this unique & refreshing partnership with @taylors over the coming months. Stay tuned to see what lies ahead! #sponsored

This partnership with @taylors has taken months of planning but I’m still pinching myself that it’s all happening!

Tomorrow marks the beginning of an 18 month #CFGExtraordinaryJourney with @Taylors and @creatingforgood along with 7 other creatives. Follow along to see what’s in store with this incredible collaboration which will also benefit @womenforwomenuk, one of @creatingforgood’s selected charities.

In the meantime I’m still having too much fun rifling through the care package @taylors sent over filled with their coffees & teas, a customised passport, Polaroid AND a guidebook to Rwanda since we’ll have the opportunity to visit at the end of this journey to see the plantations firsthand and visit the @womenforwomenuk training site. There aren’t many opportunities where I get to do what I love and simultaneously give back to the community, the fact that this project with @Taylors & @creatingforgood make an emphasis of it makes it that much more special ❤️.

It’s been a crazy past few weeks, one consumed by the wants and whims of a newborn who has been quick to declare herself boss of our household. Apparently my wish for her to have her father’s relaxed temperament has been ignored 🙈.

In other exciting news my first photo commission for the @wsj on Hackney is in print and online 💃🏻.

I meant to make a big batch of wontons to save in the freezer for a lazy day but they were so irresistible I ate them all 🤦🏻‍♀️ #sopredictable #somuchfortacotuesday

And so we begin the waiting game. I thought the knitting project would preoccupy me until my due date but that took no time at all, less than a day! So of course I'm dreaming up knitting an even bigger merino wool blanket just as autumn seems to be settling in London and potentially start a knitting club. Who wants to join me? 👵🏼🙈.

If there is a bonus to waddling around London to finish up my last photo assignment before going on maternity leave it's that nobody says no to a pregnant lady taking their picture. I only wish I discovered this superpower earlier on 😬.

What does it mean to be "authentic" and how does one navigate through this era of bots/paid for engagement without sacrificing integrity while continuing to share their creative vision & voice? The next @creatingforgood panel discussion at @sourcedmarket will be tackling these questions and many more with a wonderful roster of those in the trenches. For more details click on the link in my profile 👆🏼. Proceeds from the ticket price will be donated to Just Bread London.

In the meantime, it's moving house day and I'll get back to trying to figure out what to do with the couch that won't fit up the stairs to live in the living room 😤.

This time last year I was enjoying a pitcher of Pimm's on that dock.

Spending a week in a lake house in Maine has become a tradition of sorts for me and my family. Every August we would brace the New England summer traffic with our trunks full of marinated meats, wine and water toys giddy in the knowledge that in a few short hours the grill will be working overtime and a feast of lobster & clams is guaranteed for dinner.

I'm grounded in London with the bump this August so all I have are memories while I creep on my cousins snapchats where they're lazing on our inflatable flamingos and building fires for s'mores. The only thing keeping me from feeling full blown bitter is in knowing that next summer I'll be able to introduce the baby to my fave family tradition ☺️.

Never ending | That's what rolling out handmade pasta felt like when all I wanted to do was cook it up and slather it with a butter, Parmesan, and black pepper sauce topped with fried garlic to make pici cacio e pepe. On the plus side, I love that this #cinemagraphsunday entry is very much art imitating life in capturing endless rolling ☺️.

I don't know how I managed to make the most unattractive bundle of pasta imaginable but here is my first batch of chubby pici in all its glory 😂👩🏻‍🍳.

There are so many things I can say about cake. That two tiers is always better than one. That it made for a great Sunday breakfast. But on this occasion it was necessary to stuff my face with it just to stop me shouting expletives when reading about the Virginia rally 💆🏻. #zerochill

At a time when I should be nesting I can't help but bounce from one place to another to take in more of London's ever impressive dining scene. A recent one to note is @the_testkitchenuk in Soho where the scallop ceviche with asparagus and pork belly on salt baked pineapple (not pictured) were particularly satisfying, as was their homemade butter!

True story: Back in April when the Brit and I were traveling in China we jokingly named the bump Chow Mein as a nod to our mutual love of noodles and her Chinese heritage. Now that we're getting closer to having to decide on a real name... I'm kind of tempted to stick with it 🙊.

We're getting closer to the day when we move into the new house which is currently perfumed by paint. I can't wait to enjoy meals on the terrace with a breeze ever so slight before autumn descends upon us. And to really host that ice cream party I've been talking about for months 😋.

This week's #cinemagraphsunday is a Shakshuka breakfast from one of my fave recipes by @ottolenghi.

So excited for the new additions to Covent Garden: a shop and deli by @petershamnurseries! Literally everything they have in there I want, particularly the beautiful ceramics in stock by @kanalondon, the woven baskets, linen, mirrors and chandeliers... so like I said, everything 😅.

The only good thing that came out of today's #cinemagraphsunday entry is the Brit being able to enjoy @theboywhobakes salted caramel brownie that I got from yesterday's @cookforsyria bake sale. Why did I think it was a good idea to spend the better part of my weekends working on a cinemagraph project at 8 months pregnant again? 😅.

For those who might have missed it, my how to make a cinemagraph tutorial is now on the blog! It's my first time publishing an online tutorial so any feedback would be much appreciated 🤗.

It's a fine Friday to be holed up in @electricdiner with @belleannee chatting the afternoon away and tasting summer dishes while a storm looked to be a brewin outside.

I've managed to pull my head out of the news cycle and feel like I am suffering from whiplash 🤦🏻‍♀️. It's been a brutal last two days so now I'm going to go shut my computer off and try to journal myself back into a happy place.

But I do want to share that my cinemagraph 101 tutorial is now live on the blog. I hope you'll find it a helpful resource in getting started! Link is on my profile.

Baby back pork ribs for brunch? Ok! The @creatingforgood team met over the weekend @chaikilondon in @canarywharflondon for a 'not your usual brunch' feast. Loved the ribs but only order if you can take the heat 🔥. Also not to be missed are the miso curry leaf scrambled eggs, dahi puri and koliwada calamari. I can't wait to return and try the rest of the menu 🤤.

On a side note, this happens to me every time the @creatingforgood team meets. I leave brimming with energy and inspiration. It seems we always end up infecting each other with our ideas & drive to make a positive contribution to our community and our charities. I can't help but feel so grateful for the team and this experience.

With that said, we are planning a few fun projects for the rest of 2017. More details will be announced soon on the @creatingforgood account!
