Why, hello there! We are Barri and Belle (better known as Barri-Jayne and Jazmine), mother and daughter and the best of friends. We both already have individual blogs (mine's called Jazzabelle's Diary and my mother's is Barri-Jayne Makes), but we decided to start a joint blog all about our favourite things and day to day life - we do so many lovely things together it just makes sense to share them with you all! We do hope you enjoy our new little venture, we're both ever so excited!
Isn't my mum a babe? She even let's me play with my food, too!So, what better place to start than by sharing our favourite café with you all, Il Molino on Battersea Park Road. My mum and I have been visiting here for quite a few years - it's opposite our favourite charity shops and just a short walk away from our little flat, so it really is the perfect place! We both just adore the decor, the owner is ever so kind and we know that every time we visit we are guaranteed to have a lovely chat and a delicious cup of hot chocolate. My mum is wheat and gluten intolerant, so we always order the gluten free cake option, mandarin and chocolate, which just so happens to be the best on the menu (and trust me, I've tried them all)! The cost of our afternoon treat totalled just under twelve pounds, which we think is pretty darn worth it for an independent café, plus as much as we love Starbucks we really do think that it's important to support your local businesses. We'd definitely recommend a visit, just don't go stealing our favourite table or the last of the gluten free cake!
It's going to take some getting used to writing and blogging together, but we think a mother/daughter blog is something that is quite special and different, so we're sure that we will be posting very often. Please do let us know what you think! It would also mean the world to us if you could 'like' our new Facebook page, too! A big thank-you to Ella for creating our beautiful header. Lots of love, Jazmine (and Barri!).
