Foodies like us, we love going to food (truck) festivals. The wide variety of food available, the often funny and creative names, slogans and appearance of the trucks selling the food and the overall ambiance at these festivals: count me in!

I’ll share some of my favourite blog posts from the internet, some cool recipes or Instagram updates… Who knows!

I was at my parent’s place when I found these AMAZING vintage (real real real vintage from mothers great aunt or something) teacups etc. and I decided it was time for a little photography practising ๐Ÿ˜‰ I made some tea and took everything outside in the sun! And you have to admit it looks sort of British, those teacups and saucers… That’s why I figured “How do you do?” would be the perfect title! *insert British accent*
