|The HEART that connects us all!|
|A beautiful Bride to be|
What does Madame Talien, the wife of an aristocrat during the French revolution and the formidable Kate Moss have in common? They both like to dip into baths of decadence, the former swished around in crushed strawberries and the latter in Champagne! True to form Kate, Queen of Cool, has just tied the knot with a wedding cake worth a whopping £10,000, it’s a wee drop in the ocean compared to the total cost of this nuptial gathering. Ironically the cake alone would cover at least half the entire expense of an average wedding these days.
That said no one really wants to be “average”, indeed I believe no one is. We all have our idiosyncrasies and special talents. Some are more in touch with their joi de vivre than others, however we ALL deserve something that little bit special, everyday!
|I spy Madame Talien!|
|And no matter where you go,
there you are! Confucius
Summer sipping is the way forward, when we’re hydrated our minds tick tock that much better and who can resist a Strawberry Lassi? Upon drinking this Love Life tonic on a beach in Kerala, I was forever transformed. Perhaps the Guru who cleansed and healed my chakras is in part responsible for that, either way I’m a sucker for all things strawberry and this is my favourite tipple! The great thing about lassi’s is how adaptable they are, other favourite flavours include mango, banana, rose and coconut – have fun experimenting! I wonder what will be your favourite?
I’ve used the new activia pouring yogurt, though any natural yogurt is fine.
I hope you enjoy this in the meantime.
Here’s to a strawberry Summer of Love,
