I’ve been wanting to try out Livia’s Raw Shortbread Millionaire Bites since she launched them earlier this year and when I was in London I managed to get my hands on a tub. I really wanted to try the salted date caramel flavour but unfortunately Selfridge’s Food Hall was completely sold out of them and I didn’t have time to look for them anywhere else. Instead I just decided to go for the almond and raisin. I’ve been waiting long enough for them!
As soon as I got home from my London trip I dug in. I thought they were really nice and tasted very indulgent despite them being a healthy treat. I like raisins but it’s not my preferred flavour. They were definitely nice and delicious after they had been in the fridge for a couple of hours but I really wish I would’ve found the salted caramel version. Maybe I’ll just have to hunt it down online and try it out.
They were good, but not the best treats I’ve ever had. However, if you are a raisin and chocolate fan, these are definitely for you!
It’s easy to forget that it’s the middle of the summer here in Glasgow. Today it started off quite sunny and from there it just went downhill with downpours all afternoon. I was cold when I met up with my beautiful ladies for dinner after work at Soba! Glasgow, you need to get your seasons straight ASAP. I’m so glad Jamie and I are going to Spain for my birthday at the end of August, otherwise I don’t know what I’d do. I can’t wait for heat, sun on my skin, sand between my toes and the sound of the waves in my ears.
Until then I’ll be looking through photos from our previous holidays and dreaming away. I’m longing for morning yoga classes with Fran at La Siesta overlooking the sea. Few things can beat that peaceful feeling you get from gazing at it during class.
Today I also did something quite scary but something I’m so excited about. I can’t wait to share what it is with you by the end of the week!
When I arrived in Stockholm I straight away met up with my wonderful friend Sanna for a catch up and lunch. We were originally going to go to Babel Deli but when we got there they were closed for the summer. I’ve been wanting to go there for quite a while so it was slightly disappointing as they hadn’t posted anything about it on their Facebook or website.
We weren’t sure of where to go but randomly ended up in Urban Deli and their salad bar. The lady working there was so kind and helpful. Sanna and I both ended up choosing the veggie option with feta, pea purée, olives and lots of other delicious things.
Once we’d both received our salads, the lady recommended us to take the lift to the top floor and sit on the roof terrace. It was such a nice surprise and the view from up there was amazing! It was very quiet there considering it’s bang in the middle of the city centre. The roof terrace has comfy chairs to enjoy the sun in and around the corner from where we sat there is a bar which sells drinks and some food.
Our salads were delicious and very filling, which I really liked (I’m one hungry soul)! I would definitely say that Urban Deli is worth a visit and the roof terrace is such a great place to enjoy a sunny summer’s day.
