Pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin pie & even pumpkin on pizza (say what?!) – pumpkins are everywhere and I can tell you that I don’t mind it one bit! I may have a teeny tiny obsession with the vegetable and I fully blame Cinderella for igniting this flame that makes me want to take pictures with, next to and/or standing by pumpkins (of all shapes – note these 3 mini ones. I couldn’t resist the autumnal cuteness!) for an Instagram!
This obsession lead me to researching pumpkin recipes on my go-to site to get inspiration – Pinterest and around 40 pins of pumpkins later I found this recipe which looked super quick and easy so I gave it a go…
- 2kg pumpkin
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 125g bulgur wheat
- 1 onion roughly chopped
- Bunch of flat leaf parsley
- Bunch of chives
- 100g firm goat’s cheese cut into 1cm pieces
- Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
- Slice the top of the pumpkin and scoop out the seeds and pulp.
- Brush the inside with a tablespoon of olive oil and bake for 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, cover the wheat with the hot vegetable stock and cover for 20 minutes, until the water is absorbed.
- Heat the remaining olive oil in a small frying pan and add the onion then the garlic. Cook until softened.
- Combine the onion mixture with parsley, wheat & most of the chives, goat’s cheese. Season with salt.
- Remove the pumpkin from the oven and spoon the mixture into the pumpkin before returning it to the oven for another 25-30 minutes.
- Garnish with the remaining chives and goat’s cheese.
Outfit post! Not the most exciting autumnal outfit I know, but since my sister left home and got married, half of my clothes (read: her clothes that I often steal) went too, so therefore I am attempting to spend this weekend trying to build up the autumn wardrobe – sorry credit card!
I bought this suede skirt a few months ago and although it wasn’t cheapest of skirts, I think it was quite a versatile piece to buy, as the suede material can also work for autumn, despite the bright colour…I hope anyway! I teamed it up with a Breton stripped top and would have ordinarily worn a cute faux fur gilet on top but she took that too! Thanks sis(!)

Got to love Fashion Week right? The catwalks, checking out who’s on the ‘frow, the after party outfits & the biscuits. No need to re-read that sentence, you read it right; yes fashion biscuits, haven’t you heard? It’s the new thing!
One of my favourite London biscuit brands, Biscuiteers, got in touch with me, to ask if I could style their new Fashionista Biscuit Tin, which is in collaboration with style guru Alice Naylor-Leyland. The collection is based on her staple wardrobe pieces and you can find mini edible shoes, dresses and even a trench coat from designers such as Alice Temperley, Charlotte Tilbury & Charlotte Olympia.
A massive thank you to the lovely ladies at Biscuiteers for sending me the most fashionable biscuits in town with the cutest tea set! Who doesn’t want a mini edible pair of Charlotte Olympia flat shoes for an afternoon biscuit break? Now, to save up for the real thing!
