this is jess. jess is beautiful. jess is new zealander/british, which makes her even more beautiful.

yesterday was saturday, which meant i didn't have much to do, and when you're in my house and you don't have much to do, you're immediately drafted into the cleaning committee. that is so not fetch. i felt in the mood for skyping, and after getting to chat with ryan gracie and anna gray, i figured it was about time to chat with the ever-lovely accented jess. so i did.

and lemme tell you guys: she is so adorable. her accent is precious, and she and her family sound like something out of downton abbey, i swear. and according to her and her brother, american barbecue is fantabulous, and i could pass for someone from essex. my life is officially complete. now, all i need is a passport.

like peter, who's also british, i decided to carpe diem and interview jess for the blog. so if you've been looking for some britishly things to eat, i have just the thing. 

f o r  b r e a k f a s t.
muesli (a form of granola) with various mixed berries and a glass of milk.

f o r  l u n c h
chicken or beef salad, which includes lettuce, various cheeses, cucumber, and onion dressing.

Bill's Classic Burger @Bill's Burger & Bar
f o r  d i n n e r.
lamb, steak, or burgers, with raw cauliflower salad and beans. sometimes yorkshire pudding.

f o r  d e s s e r t. 
ice cream, white chocolate biscuits (cookies), berries with cream.

5 o'clock
t o  d r i n k.
red bush tea, south african tea, or fizzy pop (soda).

oh, yes. i absolutely adore this girl. can you guess what i'll be dining on for the rest of my life? with a side of cupcakes, of course.
-kiss kiss kiss, keep calm and carry on-

  6. Haha, never knew these were actually Britishly! I mean they're like my (almost) everyday food. And yes she is indeed beautiful. Well so are you! ♥

    Living in Australia all my life doesn't make my accent any better or even British-er. Ahh.

    1. i know, dearie! it's just that jess doesn't like to call lunch dinner and all that jazz, and it was really less confusing for me. americans are so boring. i think i'll just completely be british, starting now.
