• Walking into the new week.. into the living room for work πŸ˜πŸ˜‚ that's the commute now. Meaning more time in bed to sleep and slower mornings with coffee 😍 I'm kinda getting used to this. And you know what? No Sunday blues πŸ™ŒπŸ» This whole situation has made me grateful for everything I do have right now. πŸ₯° Has it changed your outlook on anything? Hope you all have a good start to the week! .

  • Pretty fly for a fun-gi πŸ„πŸ˜ Made the most delicious bake last night for dinner, with mushrooms and gammon cooked off in butter, before simmering in a low fat soft cheese sauce, with milk, garlic and seasoning, pouring into a LΓͺ Creuset dish, topping with sliced par-boiled potatoes and grated cheese and baking for half hour. Absolutely dreamy bake 🀀 Mushrooms are a go-to ingredient with me. What about you?

There are a number of recipes over on the blog (link in bio) if you fancy some inspiration. .

  • This view from our window certainly didn't need to 'grow' on us 😍πŸ₯° Feeling extremely lucky for big living room windows and these views right now 😍 I sit and stare out at the allotments, watching for the parakeets at least once a day - it's quite calming but also, without a back garden, is the next best thing (along with our one distanced outing to walk or run) πŸ₯° So glad we moved into our own place when we did. So perfectly timed with everything.. We're very lucky πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸ» .

  • You're the only bun for me πŸ˜πŸ˜‚ Hot Cross Buns are an absolute fave πŸ₯°πŸ€€ So much so, that I regularly ditch birthday cake for them - I'm so lucky my birthday is always somewhere close-ish to Easter. This year, we picked up some salted caramel hot cross buns from @aldiuk during our weekly shop and gosh, they are SO GOOD. Not too sweet or overly salted caramel, but just enough flavour to shine through. The regular hot cross bun taste staying strong too 🀀 mmm... Got some left, and trying to decide when it's best to tuck into one today. Oh the decisions you get when you have a whole weekend predominantly inside, apart from exercise πŸ˜‚ .

  • One step at a time 🎢 Thought was quite apt for this strange and uncertain time 😳 it's an even stranger time for a birthday πŸŽ‚πŸŽˆ Today I enter the last year of my 20s.. HELLO 29 πŸŽˆπŸ‘‹πŸ» Not quite the birthday (week) we had planned, but going to make the most and be grateful for every little thing πŸ™πŸ» Luckily, I'm stuck with @samikid88 in our gorgeous little flat, so that's a good start! πŸ˜‚

  • I've bean thinking a lot recently... 😏 Well, always do. But it's funny how all the beige food is so hard to get right now. Just shows how much we love it - beige is good though right?! Comforting. Can't believe when I was little I wouldn't touch baked beans. In fact I used to pour ketchup and brown sauce/salad cream all over it to mask the flavour when mum tried to make me eat them 😷 Funny how your taste buds change as you grow up. Ooo how much I enjoyed this 😍🀀

  • Just getting into the flow πŸ‘ŒπŸ» Coming back to the current situation has been a little strange, but we're quickly adjusting. Today, we managed to get out for a run - it was meant to be a steady jog to slowly get back into it (especially with Chris building the strength of his achilles), but we were out for over an hour in the beautiful sunshine. Distancing ourselves from those we passed (of course) who also had taken the opportunity to get out in the lovely weather for some much needed fresh air. It was a hard run, and I felt very nauseous when I got back, but also felt amazing. Whilst we can go out (and keep our distance), we're going to try to do a decent run every other day, and workout/stretch the days in between - I know it will do wonders for my mental health right now and I'm already excited to do some of the live streamed workouts I've been seeing crop up! How are you guys holding up your self care right now? Remember, we all need to be kind to ourselves - now and always πŸ₯° .

  • LOTS OF SOCKS 🧦 Today is World Down Syndrome Day - to raise awareness of, and celebrate those amazing people who have Down's Syndrome. Celebrating diversity and showing we're all different and unique in our own way πŸ₯° Despite everything going on right now, it's amazing to see so many getting their odd socks out and supporting this amazing charity who I've had the privelege of doing some volunteering with over the past 6 months. Some of you may know, @samikid88 works for the @downs_syndrome_association (how I got into it), and they truly do some amazing things, including the advocacy group I help with πŸ₯° My aim was to help out every other month this year, but unfortunately due to everything going on, that is going to be on pause, but I can't wait until I can get back into it whenever that may be.

  • Cannot espresso how amazing Vietnam has been 😍 despite everything currently going on in the world right now (can't believe how much its changed in the 2 weeks we've been away), we have experienced and seen so many wonderful things, and had plenty of delicious food too. As well as beers and of course the vietnamese coffee. We only left Vietnam 12 hours ago and I'm already missing the coconut coffee and yoghurt coffee! 😍 We're currently 4 hours into a 12 hour stopover due to cancelled flights.. 😴 Not quite halfway through our 28 hour journey home (meant to be 15) πŸ˜… we're definitely going to be tired bears when get finally touch down, but it'll be worth it. .

  • Secret Garden 🌸🍚 This super cute rooftop restaurant really is a secret garden. One of our final spots in Vietnam, during our slow last day in Ho Chi Minh City today .. We had to wander down a quiet mews, and up four flights of stairs of a random building to get in 😳 we'd actually found this spot on one of the Vietnam roundups on @eastlondonfoodiegirl πŸ‘ŒπŸ» Food was pretty darn good - the steamed jasmine rice was only 10,000 vnd and all you can eat, the mackerel in tomato sauce was cooked well and rich in flavour, the ribs were in a delicious sweet and sticky sauce, and the chicken with lemongrass was fab too. Service was OK, but all felt a little odd, maybe as it was so quiet πŸ˜” Chris managed to get stung by a big bee too πŸ™„ but it's OK guys, he's OK πŸπŸ™ŒπŸ» .

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!
