|Lazy Sunday at Penrice Castle Estate, Oxwich Bay, Swansea|
|Oxwich Bay - Saturday afternoon and hardly a soul in sight|
|Pan fried cod, samphire, asparagus, baby courgettes in a lemon & caper butter|
|Pan fried razor clams, olive oil, capers, chorizo, sundried tomatoes and a handful of cherry tomatoes. Serve with warm crusty bread.|
Sorry for the prolonged absence, I escaped to the coast for long lazy weekend, which as you can see from the photos was exactly that. Having booked a last minute stay in one of Penrice Castle cottages in Oxwich bay, we arrived on Friday evening and immediately felt like we had found Narnia. No reception, no internet, just the two of us and what felt like the whole estate to ourselves. The views were reminiscent of a Constable painting, with not a soul in sight. Even on a busy Saturday afternoon, you can escape the crowds on Oxwich bay and find a secluded spot for yourself. With a failed attempt at catching razor clams, we resorted to buying them and cooked a delicious meal, pan frying the clams in little olive oil, capers, sundried tomatoes, chorizo and a handful of cherry tomatoes. Bon Appetit!

Neons. They're everywhere and in every shade possible. Accessories seem to be the easiest way to wear them mixed with pale cool pastels, crisp white and neutrals, but personally I love any woman brave enough to go out dressed in highlighter brights. COS have the newest take on neons on the highstreet, including my favourite - the coveted playsuit......but get it quick, it's almost sold out!

|DIY embellished crochet collar|
Love them or hate them, it's the trend with more longevity than the Acne Pistol boot and neon Cambridge satchel combined. Embellished, leather, lace, metal, printed - collars are here for the long haul. Particularly love the embellished gem encrusted offerings worn with neutrals and brights. Heres a few images of a crochet collar I livened up recently.
