Faraway Shores, Kale Risotto & Exotic Birds: January In Instagrams

It’s always scary when you realise the first month of the year has vanished before your eyes. However looking back January has been all we hoped for; inspired, restful and full of memories. Instagram is awesome for letting you appreciate and capture the beauty of life day to day. As such it’s a perfect way to reflect on the highlights and happenings of the last month. So in no particular order…

January 2015

Best Meal {Bottom Right}: A serving of green goodness! Risotto of barley, steamed celeriac, cavolo nero & pumkin seed pesto at Daylesford Cafe in Notting Hill. Firstly, who knew risotto could be so green and secondly, yes I am proudly one of those annoying people who photograph their food!

Favourite Airport {Top Middle}: Koh Samui International. This was taken during our recent visit to Thailand. The airport is literally a hut. Best features: the 20 meter transfer on a very rustic open air shuttle from our rickety plane to the arrivals ‘lounge’ and the restrooms (and only the restrooms) being air conditioned, fancy!

Most Coveted Object {Middle Left}: A Jacques Barraband print of an Exotic Bird. I fell in love with this antique french print on one of my vintage store explorations. Glen surprised me with the zoological illustration on Christmas day and after a few weeks of careful contemplation it now has a perfect place on the wall.

Best Memory {Middle Middle}: Exploring Wat Poh Temples in Bangkok. A reminder of how much beauty in the world there is to explore.

Most Inspired Evening {Top Left}: Sarah Haywood’s Wedding Bible book launch at the Four Seasons, Park Lane. A beautiful evening to celebrate the sensational new edition of the Wedding Bible, which is out on Valentines Day.

Favourite Photo {Bottom Middle}: Black & White of Hemingway. “I thought the most beautiful thing in the world must be shadow” – Sylvia Plath – The Bell Jar.

New Eatery {Top Right}: Heddon Street Kitchen. Gordon Ramsay’s new London brasserie off Regent Street. Yum. The marrow sauce was pure delight!

Best Vista {Middle Right}: Angthong Marine Park, Thailand. A day of snorkelling in the stunning seascapes of this unspoilt archipelago.

Most Surprising Find {Bottom Left}: Unexpected Inspiration on a facade in Notting Hill. Around the corner from Paul Rhodes bakery is this playful scene, just magical.
