Nothing makes me happier than the chance to grab my camera, my telephoto lens, and go and photograph some animals! Places like Bristol Zoo are some of my favourite places in the world; partly for this reason and partly because both J and I love animals, and all donations, spending and entry goes towards helping with conservation of hundreds of different species.

With less than 8 weeks(!) to go to the wedding, we're very much into the 'final bits' stages. Of course, that includes the stressful stuff like chasing RSVPs, organising the caterer and paying out an eye-watering amount of money but it does also include the little bits and pieces that will add the finishing touches to the day; like these adorable pins.

For this recipe my main experimentation was the use of lemon curd as opposed to actual lemon, as per my usual lemon loaf cake recipe. This results in a far less structural bake; it isn't something you want to eat without a plate! the upside of this is a super sweet melt-in-the-mouth texture with a touch of warm lemon flavouring. I can imagine this pairing great with whipped cream or even vanilla ice cream.

I've written about my love for Spectrum Collections several times on the blog, with my latest glowing review of the marbelous set here. In terms of cleaning and maintaining my (now far too many) brushes, I wasn't quite living up to the once-a-week mantra the experts suggest; so any product that was going to make that chore a little easier was going to be alright in my book!
