Hi, My name is Rica and I’m a Chocoholic.

We kicked things off by hitting the Brownie Trail. Mum and I tried and tested all the brownies from all the participating stalls. Shout out to @batchbakeryldn (elvis brownie/cookie dough brownie) and @badbrownieco (double textured salted caramel/ bacon brownie) y’all were my favourites for sure :)

Once we had our fill of brownies we took our places at the Tasting Lounge. We learned that Chocolate is not only good partnered with coffee but also with TEA! (but then again chocolate is good with anything) We exercised amazing self control when the masters started dishing out the chocolates to taste with the different flavoured teas. We were rewarded with better tea fusion knowledge…good bye tea bags! Hello loose tea!!

Mum and I spent most of our morning at the festival and left with some real goodies like Sir Hans Sloane drinking chocolate. Our favourite was the Ecuador 70% so much so that we took home three boxes!

Two thumbs up for The Chocolate Festival!! 

Munch Street Food @MunchStreetFood
- Potters Fields Park

Taking us back down from chocolate heaven Supermama (that’s what I like to call her) and I headed to Potters Fields Park for some good grubbin’ and also to show our support for the London Marathon Runners. Live music and hearty street food filled the air as we settled down for our second feast. The view was not too shabby either.

We chose Venezuelan Food joint Guasacaca (Venezuelan Avocado Salsa)

Their hand rolled Arepas (South American Corn Cakes) are what sealed the deal. image

It’s Safe to say today’s food fest was a success. Supermama loved her Mother’s Day present! and I got the chance to indulge on my favourite past time..PIGGING OUT!!!

Russell Brand May Have Started a Revolution Last Night

The revolution itself may not be televised, but on last night’s edition of the BBC’s Newsnight, viewers may have witnessed the start of one.

Actor-slash-comedian-slash-Messiah Russell Brand, in his capacity as guest editor of the New Statesman’s just-published revolution-themed issue, was invited to explain to Jeremy Paxman why anyone should listen to a man who has never voted in his life.

"I don’t get my authority from this preexisting paradigm which is quite narrow and only serves a few people," Russell responded. "I look elsewhere for alternatives that might be of service to humanity."

And with that, the first shots of Russell’s revolutionary interview were fired.

Over the course of the following ten-or-so minutes, Brand and Paxo volleyed back and forth over subjects ranging from political apathy, to corporate greed, to gorgeous beards.

Throughout the interview, Brand repeatedly dodged Paxman’s efforts to trivialize his message — at one point Paxman literally called Brand a “very trivial man” — until finally, even the entrenched newsman appeared to relent against the rushing tide of Brand’s valid arguments.

After Brand reminded Paxman that he cried after learning that his grandma too had been “fucked over” by aristocrats, the Newsnight host was stunned into silence.

"If we can engage that feeling and change things, why wouldn’t we?" Brand crescendoed. "Why is that naive? Why is that not my right because I’m an ‘actor’? I’ve taken the right. I don’t need the right from you. I don’t need the right from anybody. I’m taking it."
