Chai Almond Milk Recipe



Soak those almonds of yours about a cup full overnight so they're all juicy and plump.

So first of all lets get the kettle on and stew some chai tea bags, you could totally make your own flavour and not cheat with a tea bag by stewing honey, cinnamon , ginger, vanilla, cardamom , cloves and cinnamon with a bit of water. Who has time for that though? You'll have to strain it etc etc etc i'm lazy so lets get back to the tea bag deal. 
You'll only want a little bit of water in with the chai tea just enough to get the flavour running through your milk.
While thatsaaaa brewing lets make the almond milk, now i have a Almond Cow machine and i know that not everyone has that luxury so i'm going to give you the recipe on how i made it before hand.
Usually people say to peel the skin off the almonds but honestly i don't notice the difference enough to feel the need to do so.. but if you would like? then do so. Stick them in the blender with some water ( the ratio i use is 1 cup almonds 3 cup water  ) and blitz until smooth...pour the liquid out in a secure muslin cloth over a bowl ( or you can get a straining bag )  and pour the almond mixture in to it. Then bunch up the cloth or bag and squeeze the milk out SO DAMN SATISFYING. You'll be left with pulp which you can make in to almond flour, just dry it out and store in to a jar until needed.
Last step combine your brewed chai tea and milk together, thats it.
The milk lasts up to 3 - 4 days in the fridge :)

It's so much easier than you think and cheaper than buying it already bottled. 
I love experimenting with vanilla and agave nectar. 

Little Room Inspo

Okay so i've been super inspired on instagram lately... i've completely changed who i follow ( still in the process whyyyy in the world did i start following so many ) . You are your own keeper and instead of moaning about who or what you see, change it.
Anywho i've been loving seeing little ones nurseries, bed rooms, playrooms so i thought i'd share my favourite accounts :)

Playdough Date


Although splashing in puddles is fun for 10 minutes you can’t spend your whole day out there with that English ‘breeze’ scolding your ears and the drips of rain promising to make it down your neck.
Winter ergh. 
As i decided to come up with some home activities that kept India and I entertained, i thought i'd share them. Anything that keeps me from pulling my hair out and switching on the screen. That sweet sweet screen ... oh I dream of that thing and the silence it brings.



The first thing we've done is playdough!
I found some beautiful pots by Dough My Dear on Instagram. I then set about finding bits and bobs for some good ole’ tactile stimulation. Hiding objects that can be dug out, squelched in, thrown across the table helps prolong the play! 



You can easily make your own- I would defo recommend putting it in tubs or jars as that adds to the play!
Here’s my recipe -

  • 1 cup of flour.
  • 1/4 cup of salt.
  • 3/4 cup of water.
  • 3 tablespoons of lemon juice.
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil.

You can enhance it by adding a drop of an essential oils such as lavender to add an aroma or food colouring / natural dyes to change the colour!






Play dough activities are a great way to develop fine motor skills.

Manipulating playdough helps to strengthen hand muscles and develop control over the fingers. Snipping playdough sausages helps develop scissor cutting skills. There are also specific activities that can also promote skilled use of the tripod fingers, which can help develop pencil control and better handwriting.

Let me know if you would like me to carry this on as s 'series' type thing. I'm always after rainy day ideas so i'd love to hear yours as much as i love to share!
