• A favourite snap ❀️ I know, I know I usually start with a pun.. But this didn't need one 😏 Today marks 4 months since I've basically, solely been with this human.. Every day! And while I kinda feel like we've been robbed of two proper summers (remember last year he tore his achilles), at least we're still together, making our own fun (we constantly make fun of eachother - swipe to see evidence at this party) and enjoying the little things πŸ₯° However, I still wanted to throw it back to this.. One of my fave pics of the two of us; when we went to one of his Nigerian family celebrations, and I was welcomed by all, dressed in his family native and embracing the festivities πŸ₯° Absolutely loved it. Hoping to start seeing family soon.. And let's just hope (and keep everything crossed) that the rona goes away, so celebrations can commence too 😍

  • Bake it 'til you make it.. through lockdown 😏 and then bake some more, obvs. We haven't done enough baking these past few months, whilst stuck indoors. In fact, last weekend was the first bake of lockdown in our flat 😱😱 I know right?! We're more cookers than bakers I guess. But these were super therapeutic to make. And although not quite the rock buns/cakes I had hoped they'd turn out like (although miniature), they make for a VERY TASTY cookie 🀀 soft inside too! The recipe definitely needs a little work for good ol' rock buns, but these are helping us get through the week! 😍🀀

  • Tell me what's lasag-na mind 😏🍴 on mine right now, all the grateful feelings for making a big lasagna yesterday, so there were leftovers for tonight 🀀 This is exactly what I needed this eve - even more minimum effort because Chris sorted the sides and reheated the dish πŸ˜‚ The dream end to Monday πŸ₯° How are you finishing yours? .

  • This too shall pass πŸ™πŸ» I don't just mean the rain (we've been watching the weather change so unpredictably today). My auntie Jo sent me this parable as it featured in her 21 day meditation today, and it really made me think πŸ₯° It talks about how not only will the bad times pass (a good thought in itself to help get through those tougher moments in time), but so will the good. Yep, those don't stick around either. Meaning they should be cherished and savoured as we live through them. I'm definitely taking this with me, and hope to make sure I really let myself enjoy those moments as much as possible. I thought this might be a good little parable to share with you for a Sunday night - if you do have Sunday blues, they'll pass 😘 .

  • Can't egg-nore the call for a super tasty weekend brekkie 😏🀀 Yes, I know what you're thinking.. It looks like it's going to be one messy bagel. I can confirm, it was πŸ˜‚ Soft scramble certainly doesn't always stay inside. But gosh, it's worth getting messy for. Garlic soft scramble with breaded ham inside a lightly toasted bagel makes for one seriously dreamy brekkie to start the weekend. How are you starting yours?

  • Gifted | It's all run and games out jogging in this heat 🌞πŸ”₯Not sure how I'm still smiling at this point πŸ˜… Might be because we we're actually going my pace πŸ˜πŸ˜‚ or because I was in my  @modibodi shorts πŸ™ŒπŸ» They're designed to help with those 'oops' moments (incontinence), which many runners experience - after doing a whole lotta reading, I now know it's totally normal πŸ‘ŒπŸ» I've been trialling out the active running shorts with light-medium coverage (anything more than very little leaks, Modibodi sell pants with more coverage too) over the last few weeks and they've been fab at covering up those, what could be, embarrassing happenings. They're also super comfortable and I feel totally covered. They make me feel more confident out on my long runs - I struggle more with controlling my body when it's hot and I'm pushing myself for a greater distance, so they've been great for helping me feel like I can push myself, to keep going, and hit personal bests. But equally just enjoy my long runs πŸ₯° And that is why they make me smile. Have you ever suffered from 'oops' moments out running? What keeps you smiling when out for a run? .

  • I'm kinda buzzed and it's all because.. This is how we stew it πŸ˜πŸ€€πŸ˜‚ Well actually, this is how @samikid88 does dinner 😍 He's been dying to try more slow cooker dinners so we're not in the kitchen all eve. This was one of his first - a beef stew. Diced beef and onions, browned then popped in the slow cooker, with carrots, beef stock and spices for 4 hours on high πŸ‘ŒπŸ» When it came to the eve, he only needed to boil some rice and steam some veg - and the stew was so rich, soft and tasty 🀀 that beef was heavenly. He can definitely do this again πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜ .

  • Avo fancied anything more? 😏πŸ₯‘ I saved one of my avocadoes for the weekend.. So when Chris requested soft boiled eggs yesterday, I knew exactly what was going with mine 😏 I actually managed to do 3 perfectly runny soft boiled eggs in one go. THREE. Mine, which is always last to peel, was still dreamy - and mmm half on each piece of my smashed avo on toast, it was one heavenly brunch. How has your weekend been? Hope you've had lots of delish food and looked after yourselves πŸ’ž

  • I sky with my little eye πŸ‘€β˜οΈ I'm not quite ready to brace the world yet (even after 9. 5 hours sleep - I obvs needed it),but when I am I'm hoping the weather app is still telling the truth 🀞🏻 (does anyone's ever get it completely right?) it's rest day today πŸ™ŒπŸ» So as the weather looks like it'll be pretty OK (even nice), I'm hoping we'll venture out for a stroll to do some more exploring of our local area πŸ₯° Still feeling lucky to be in this area πŸ₯° what have you got planned for yourself this Saturday? .

  • Lettuce eat 😏πŸ₯¬πŸ€€ Hummus bowls are a fave that I don't have enough! I actually burnt my fingers cooking the potato and carrot for this one (be careful guys!) 😳 I just got too excited at the prospect of the completed dish 😍 roasted potato, onions, cumin spiced carrots and mushroom with fresh leaves and juicy tomato. Along with a big dollop of hummus 🀀 what's not to get excited about? Absolutely dreamy combo! .

Lashes of Lifestyle (aka CloHutch_)

About Me

I’m Chloe aka @CloHutch_. A 28-year-old Londoner, used to be West Midlander. Brunette and a tiny bit short – but hey I quite like my height!

I’ve now lived in London for over 6 years and it still never fails to amaze me. I really do consider myself lucky to have had the chance to experience the London life.Β Even with several stressed moments and hiccups along the way… that’s just life!

I’m a Digital PR by day, blogger the rest of the time. I couldn’t imagine my evenings and weekends without a brunch or dinner out, blog to write, recipe to create or photographs to take. Although I have started learning the benefit of switching off every now and then.

Madrid, Things to do and see

You’ll probably find me…

Eating out & finding new restaurants and pop-ups|In the kitchen whipping up something tasty|Out exploring the streets of London| At the Theatre watching in absolute awe|Getting as fit as possible at the gym or the latest fitness class (to continue eating)| Exploring a new city/country | Going on walks to explore more of the countryside and London’s green space | In my front room catching up on my fave tv shows, perhaps with a G&T.

I am determined to make the most of everything, and want to tell the world of all the fantastic discoveries I make along the way!

I hope you enjoy reading! I do love to hear what people think too, and I’m always up for a chat. Please do feel free to get in contact – lashesoflifestyle@gmail.com

    How fun for you to live in London!!

    1. lashesoflifestyle

      I love it. I have had so many more experiences than when living back near home (The Midlands). Always something going on, something to see and do, and everything is so close. The breaks to visit home are nice, but don’t think I could go back for good. Love city living!

      1. LFFL

        I’m a city girl myself. I totally understand.

  4. Mia Takes on the World

    I studied Psychology in University too, and for the exact same reason. Human behaviour is fascinating, indeed! πŸ™‚

    1. lashesoflifestyle

      It really is fascinating, when you think about it everything really derives from the way we act. We’re both only in the positions we are because of past and present behaviour. It’s all pretty exciting. And to think with hard work you can change the way you behave too. I’m forever thinking what if I hadn’t changed previously – makes me pretty grateful for now!
