Blue Cheese, Fig and Parma Ham Tear ‘n’ Share Bread

Blue cheese, Fig, Parma ham Tear 'n' Share Bread

Blue Cheese, Fig, Parma Ham Tear ‘n’ Share Bread This super easy to make, yet mind-blowingly good tear ‘n’ share bread makes a perfect addition to any party buffet, and it’s also just the ticket for a cosy Friday night-in with a good bottle of red wine, some pizza, and your favourite box-set. Now whilst I’ve gone for my favourite fillings of blue cheese, fig and Parma ham, you could use whatever you like. Just ensure to pick one ‘melting’ ingredient. To begin with, just slice up a tiger loaf in criss-cross cuts (cutting only halfway down).   Next, stuff your loaf to the…

FridayStylefinder: The Pinafore Dress and Weekend Picks.

Hello! And a very happy Friday to you all 🙂 Now then. This week I want to share with you one of my wardrobes new firm favourites. As in, Its my favourite, not my actual wardrobes …. although I’m pretty sure that if those shelves and cubbyholes could talk, they would definitely congratulate me on my purchase and throw a party to welcome this little baby in. Check it: I give you – THE PINAFORE! Paired with my current favourite colour combo: Grey and Burgundy (see last fashion post for more on this) And not forgetting the all important shape-streamlining magicality of…

FridayStylefinder: New Season updates – Burgundy with denim

With yesterday being the first official day of Autumn, I say its time to think coats. Lovely, lovely coats. And just because its not exactly freezing yet (Hurry up, weather … I want to light the fire) I thought I would find a really cool pair of trainers too. Its too soon for boots … One key colour trend that’s everywhere right now, is that of deep, spicy, rich wine tones, matched beautifully with (almost randomly) softer pale blue or grey. I’m really chuffed about that actually, as burgundy and pale blue has always been one of my favourite colour marriages,…

FridayStylefinder: 1 Top. 3 Outfits.

  This week we have one new season top (Animal Print from Zara- £24.99) and I’m showing it with 3 different outfits. The principle being that if you build up a few really good base items over time – in this case a black pencil skirt, and a good pair of black and white jeans, and a pair of neutral heels – then you can update your new season wardrobe with just one item as and when its time for a little treat. You can afford to be brave with this one item too, because its just an accenting piece. So…

New Week. New Shoes.

Well hello there. Long time no see! I hope you have all had a wonderful summer, I know I have. And its been a busy one alright – Hence, no blogging … But I’d just like to say a very big heartfelt thanks to everyone who has messaged and emailed to say that they have missed ZmG posts each week – I was really happy to know that people enjoy reading it, much less actually noticed its absence! Thanks guys. I made a conscious effort before my four children broke up from school to leave my laptop well alone during the summer holidays, so that I could…

20 Signs That You Are a True LEO

I am a Leo. My eldest Son is a Leo, and I know lots of other Leos. And I am yet to come across another fellow Leonian (That’s an actual word, by the way) who doesn’t share and exhibit at least some of these traits below … (incidentally, if you exhibit all of them, then my sympathies are with your nearest and dearest.) what do you think? can you tick any of these traits off of the list? 20 SIGNS You are fiercely loyal to your friends and family – God help anyone who even hints at criticising those deemed…

FridayStylefinder: Tailored Wide-Leg Trouser from Karen Millen

Happy Friday everyone! apologies for this being a little late in the working day … I got a bit held up earlier! Anyhoo … Trousers, guys. Bright red ones. Big, massive, wide-legged things of 90’s-esque beauty from Karen Millen. Who loves them? God I do! … they may well be a little ‘out there’ for everyone’s tastes, but for me, I think they are fabulous. I know, I do need to have them taken up, but what can I say, I’m a shorty. They have only just arrived in the post but I still wanted to show them to you… However, that…

FridayStylefinder: Two Summery T-shirt Dresses

For this weeks #Fridaystylefinder I thought it only right to feature clothes that are actually applicable to our sudden onset of (very welcome) summer. Basically, I’m showing the dress that I am actually wearing today, plus its sister dress –  I love this dress that I’m wearing so much that I bought a similar one. I’ll show you … This is what I’m wearing today – Its from Boden (I know. Boden again!) but I love its simplicity. I love that its loose and comfy, and its just perfect for a day working from home, and doing a bit of…

Guest Posting on Mummy’s Got Style – The Not-So-Good Photos

Last Friday, I was super fortunate enough to feature on the fabulous site: Mummy’s Got Style (The style blog of super-blogger Vicki of HonestMum). The theme was ‘Festival Style for Mums’ and it seemed only fitting to shoot the photos whilst enjoying a (VERY boozy) picnic with friends, accompanied by one seriously cute VW camper van … Just to put this into perspective if you aren’t familiar  – Mummy’s got style Is a very popular and busy site. Its uber professional and my guest post needed to reflect that. Now that’s all fine, I’m happy and comfortable with professionalism. Professionalism is my middle name.…

FridayStylefinder: A Perfect Wedding Guest Dress by Oasis

That lovely moment when a beautifully wrapped wedding invitation drops onto your doormat is an exciting one. It is. And lets face it, we all know why – Its not just because of the joyous impending nuptials between your beloved friends or family, it is also (mainly) because it means you have permission to buy a new outfit. Probably new shoes too. definitely a new bag. Its THE LAW. And whilst Its not a written law as such, it would still stand up in any court I’m sure, because its the peoples law … you know, much like ‘bagsy’ or calling ‘shotgun’, You know it.…
