Complaining is one of the ego’s favourite strategies for strengthening itself.
The Orphan’s Arms
I was sent this piece by The Orphan’s Arms… I was pretty made up, as I’ve admired their prints for quite some time. I adore the text on this vest, I read it aloud to my boyfriend and he seemed somewhat disturbed however - and said - ‘that’s a very… you-shirt’.
To produce this next set of photos took a lot of cursing and faux-tripods that today featured a paint can, some speakers and a card table. Find this on LB HERE. Also, find a lot more of everything on my Tumblr - http://tahti.tumblr.com…
‘In the Desert I saw a creature, naked, bestial, who, squatting upon the ground held his heart in his hands and ate of it. I said, “Is it good, friend?” ”It is bitter - bitter,” he answered - ”but I like it because it is bitter, and because it is my heart.”’
Think of the times that you walk into a room, and suddenly, you completely forget why you went there, what you needed, et cetera. Could this be because your player has clicked cancel, B, or X?
Trying out shots with my new lens… I’m in love with it already. Find this on LB here - my meal last night also was so delicious, I had to photograph it. Chili and sesame tofu, dipped in egg & cornflour, fried with garlic, pak choy, soya sauce and rice noodles, topped with spring onions.
My new lens is a Nikkor 35mm f1.8. I don’t have a tripod at the moment, so new shots will be slow coming (these were taken upon a variety of bizarre objects - laundry bins, cardboard boxes, et cetera) but when I do, I have a lot of shoots planned. People in Liverpool are really quite attractive - or rather, my friends are! I have a Zoetica Ebb shoot and an Orphan’s Arms shoot coming up… as well as just random things. Hopefully will be up and running again soon. Thank you for sticking with me through this hiatus, all your kind comments mean so much to me!

White Chocolate Cookies
White Chocolate Cookies (gluten & dairy free)
½ cup of rice flour, ½ cup of tritamyl flour
¼ cup soya butter, melted
½ cup of brown sugar, ¼ cup of white caster sugar
1 egg, 1 egg yolk
150g roughly chopped dairy-free white chocolate
100g grated dairy-free white chocolate
1 tsp vanilla
¼ tsp baking soda
1 tbsp xanthan gum
Heat oven at 170 celcius. Get two bowls - in one, mix together the flours and xanthan gum, and baking soda. In the other, cream together the melted soya butter and both the sugars. Pour in the egg and vanilla, and beat for 2-3 minutes until the mixture is more pale and quite creamy.
Stir all the ingredients together until just mixed, and then fold in the grates and chopped dairy-free white chocolate. Use about ¼ of a cup of batter for each cookie, and flatten slightly with a spoon, or the tips of your (clean!) and damp fingers. Bake for 15 minutes or so, until the edges are just browned, and the centre is still looking soft. Let cool completely and enjoy some of the most delicious cookies ever - that is, if you are as much of a fan of chewy, crispy, white chocolate flavoured baked goods as I am.
(I apologize for the terrible quality of this photo, but these cookies were so good I just had to share them, regardless.)
I eat this following recipe in the morning… because I have such a sweet tooth, dessert and breakfast must fully merge.
Dessert Porridge (gluten and dairy free)
2 strawberries, 15 blueberries
40g gluten-free porridge oats
200ml soya milk, 80ml almond milk
1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp honey
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp soya butter
1 square of dairy-free white chocolate
Pinch of salt
In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Stir in the honey and vanilla, and blend well. Pour in the oats, pinch of salt and sugar and cook until the oats have absorbed the other ingredients, and are golden.
Pour in the almond and soya milk, and cook over medium heat until completely absorbed. Turn off the heat and mix in the blueberries, stirring until the blueberries have warmed up and have begun colouring the porridge.
Quarter and top the strawberries, lay into a pattern, and place a piece of dairy-free white chocolate in the centre of the strawberry petals. Enjoy!
