Clashing Time Talks Easy Saturday Food


As I mentioned in my last post, I am not very much of an adventurous cook. This may not look very appetising, but I love all things pasta! Yesterday I spent the day relaxing and catching up on all my favourite tv shows and enjoying having no plans. I don't know about you but sometimes I just love not having anything planned and spending the day unwinding. When I have days like this, I like to eat simple but tasty food and this is the perfect dish. All you need is: Spaghetti, Sweetcorn, Chopped onion, Chopped tomatoes, Tomato Paste, Olive Oil, Salt & Pepper and Thyme. You can grab anything you have in the fridge and chuck it all in and its a great treat to keep you going through the day! I had sweetcorn at home and added it in, but I normally have peppers and sometimes courgette. You could pan fry these and then put them in, but sometimes peas and sweetcorn are such an easy option to speed up the process! What's your favourite quick and easy weekend meal? Let me know!

Clashing Time Talks Cafe Cou Cou

If there is one thing I love doing more than anything, it is going out for food! Of course everyone will say that, but for me it is on another level as I am an awful cook. I try to be imaginative, but i'm sure you will realise in time to come that I just don't quite get it right! My meals are very simple and don't really have any exciting ingredients in them and I definitely need to improve! Until that day comes, I will continue to enjoy eating out and exploring the world trying all kinds of amazing foods. One meal that comes to mind recently was at Cafe Cou Cou in Saffron Walden. It is an adorable little place on a side street in the centre of Saffron Walden and you could easily miss it! As soon as you walk in you can smell the freshly made bread and treats and it is completely overwhelming. I selected a chicken, lettuce, pepper, cucumber, sun-dried tomato and seedy wholemeal bread. It was so delicious and tasted very fresh and light...even though its a beast of a meal! This is definitely my favourite type of sandwich, what's yours?

Clashing Time Talks Pandora Wishes

This wednesday I left work a little early and jumped on a train to London town! I was so excited to get away for the evening after a little bit of a stressful few days of busy, busy, busy and it was definitely the right decision. I love going to press events, obviously they are lots of fun, but I love it mainly because you get to speak to so many great people. I turned up with my close friend Alice and we gossiped, giggled and gawked throughout the evening and genuinely really enjoyed ourselves. The event was filled with beautiful celebs like Mel B, Abbey Clancy, Thom Evans and Lucy and Proudlock from Made in Chelsea...and that's before even mentioning the gorgeous celebrity couple's who have helped design the new range for Pandora! The campaign, which launched on the 3rd November 2014, sees Pandora collaborate with 3 high profile UK celebrity couples and friends: Jamie and Louise Redknapp, Rochelle and Marvin Humes and Jameela Jamil and Rick Edwards as the friendship pairing. They have all come together to promote the PANDORA Online Wishlist in the run up to Christmas for the #PandoraWishes campaign! Do you love Pandora? Let me know!

Clashing Time Talks Boohoo.com


Top: £6.00 Jeans: £20.00 Shoes: £30.00 Fedora: £14.00 Jacket: £25.00
After watching Zoella's most recent video on her main channel about her Boohoo Haul & Giveaway, I felt as if I had to give the Boohoo website a little lookie! I have never actually bought anything from  boohoo.com as I've never been an online shopper kind of girl (mainly the fear of it not fitting/laziness of having to take it to the post office to send it back) but I feel as if my time has come to select some items, pop them in the basket and get my card out! I know that I am far too much of a nervous buyer to get all of the five items above...but if I was to select some then I would definitely get the fedora and the black shoes! I think they are both statement pieces that I could mix and match into my current wardrobe and as I grow up, I realise the importance of that! Have you got any favourite items from Boohoo.com at the moment? Let me know! CTx

Clashing Time Talks Covent Garden


A few weeks ago I went to Covent Garden with a friend of mine and it was so nice.
Although it was absolutely filled to the brim with people, the atmosphere was great and the sounds and the smells of the whole place were really lovely. It is safe to say that although it was only mid-October at the time, Christmas festivities had already started! Sometimes I have problems with London - as it is really busy and can be quite overwhelming but this day for some reason I just didn't feel like that. I think that big crowded places can be difficult to navigate if you don't know where you are going but luckily for me, my parents have made sure that over the years I have become a regular Covent Garden goer. Do you love Covent Garden? What's your favourite store there? CTx

Clashing Time Talks From London With Love


This morning I watched the With London With Love Burberry 2014 Festive commercial starring Romeo Beckham and it is just the loveliest thing! I can happily hold my hands up and admit that I am no where near being able to afford any of the beautiful coats, bags, dresses or scarves, but I can certainly appreciate the classic sophistication that comes with shopping at Burberry. Romeo Beckham has got amazing genes and i'm sure all the Beckham children will go on to be wildly successful in their own individual ways, but I think that it is very fair to say that in this situation Romeo win's over the video's audience simply because of his adorable yet cheeky boyish looks.
If you haven't already and you want to feel a little Christmassy, give it a watch! CTx

Clashing Time Talks New Look


This is the 'Cream Premium Multi Check Collarless Coat' from New Look and costs £74.99.
Although this is more than I would normally spend on a coat that wouldn't be one for everyday wearing, I do think it is super cute and is the type of jacket that could still be worn in years to come. I often find that prints like this are a timeless and whether you are wearing it now with some open toe heels or wearing it in 5 years time on a country walk with a wooly jumper and boots...it would still look nice! I think it looks as if it would be really cosy and I'd love to match it will a big collared white shirt and jeans. I think an awesome collar coming over the top of the neckline would look great! What do you think? Check it out HERE. CTx

Clashing Time Talks Don Pasquale

Don Pasquale is a beautiful restaurant in the centre of town owned by a huge family of Italians. One of whom is an old friend from college. Before I even knew that her family owned the restaurant I always looked forward to going to eat at Don Pasquale as it has great food, tasty drinks and lovely waiters! As it had been my mothers birthday recently, I decided to take her to Don Pasquale on a beautiful autumnal evening and eat and drink the evening away. I had a small glass of Borsari Merlot Rose Delle Venezie from Italy, with a little mediterranean pizza with Tomato, mozzarella, spinach, cherry tomatoes, red onions, black olives & goat’s cheese. It was such a delightful evening and it really makes you appreciate how lucky we are to have authentic restaurants and dining experiences like this! Get down to Don Pasquale in Cambridge if you get the chance.

Clashing Time Talks Children In Need



If you didn't get round to hearing it on BBC One, Two, Three, Four and Radio 1, 2, 4, 6 and 5 Live, then take a look above! It is such a beautiful video and gorgeous version of the Beach Boys song 'God Only Knows'. A long list of celebrities have come together to raise money for Children In Need and what a list of celebrities they are! Sir Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Brian May, Chris Martin, Sam Smith, Brian May, Jamie Cullum, Nicola Benedetti, One Direction, Paloma Faith...the list goes on! What a great way to bring musicians together and raise money for charity at the same time. Makes paying your TV license completely worth it.
