Jenna's Summer Fruit Salad Layer Cake with Watermelon, Blueberries & Crushed Meringue








When I wrote my new years resolutions all those many months ago, there were two things on the list that I knew were going to clash; baking more cakes and eating healthier food. Running a cake business requires plenty of buttercream sampling and with each drizzle of salted caramel ganache, my goal for a healthier diet was quickly shrinking into the distance. It was a change of focus that ignited my passion for nutritious dishes. I decided to experiment with fruit and veggies through the same colourful, creative eyes that craft my sponge alternatives, and this recipe in particular takes all the theatrical qualities of a layer cake and turns them into a guilt free pleasure.

The Mermaid of Caves Beach

Nestled away in Swansea, New South Wales, lies a dynamic coast line known as Caves Beach. The playfully ominous waves have provided a labyrinth of deep, echoing caves and endless rock pools that are bursting with colourful specks of life.

Freak Shakes at The Depot on Darby Street

When you're feeling an overwhelming craving for sweet, chocolaty, creamy indulgence, there is nothing more fitting then a Freak Shake. Whilst a relatively new obsession in the UK, Australia has been perfecting their creation for quite some time now, and it's going to be near impossible to beat.

Sunshine across Lake Macquarie

There was one place that really stole my heart in Australia, and that was Lake Macquarie. The stunning lake that features unoccupied islands and secret beaches is quite literally a stones throw from my boyfriends home. Less then a two minute walk, I spent most of my time strolling to the lake to admire the vibrant scenery, be it sunrise, sunset or sunshine. 

My Carry On Beauty Essentials for a Long Haul Flight

A beauty bag may sound like the least of your worries when you’re preparing for a 24 hour flight, but a little bag of grooming treats will freshen you up, keep your skin hydrated and make sleep and flight stopovers far more bearable. I also found having some sort of pampering routine helped to keep me sane and broke up the duration of my flight. Not only will your skin thank you, but so will your fellow passengers who will appreciate the fact you’re wearing deodorant! Here's what I pack in my carry on every time I fly. 

REVIEW: Jasper Conran at London Fashion Week AW16


As the fashionable and fabulous descended onto a once unimportant car park on Brewer Street in Soho, I was trying to take in as many London Fashion Week updates as I could, be it on the other side of the world.

Blog contributor and fellow traveller Zoe (@zoeclaireroberts) attended LFW on my behalf, frequently updating my Instagram and twitter to bring my followers, and myself, hot off the press action. The response was hugely positive, especially as she covered Jasper Conrans radiant AW16 collection.

Jasper Conrans presentation of 38 looks was a celebration of autumnal hues and architectural influences, as the catwalk flooded with vibrant, dynamic and classic looks.
