ok, so I don’t normally enthuse over soup, but oh my good god, I have just had the exquisite nectar that I believe to be the greatest soup in the world.

It was butternut squash, coconut and ginger and it was nectar of the gods. Rich and creamy, with just the right hint of a kick (from the ginger) and the depth of flavour and consistency was parfait.

I purchased such heaven on a spoon  (in case you’re wondering and want to experience the delights for yourself – and no I am not friends with the owner) from Hullabaloo, an organic cafe in Kings Court.  Its a little pricey (at £3.50 without bread or £4.50 with) but it is a-ma-zin – and well worth it.

PS: I did try their Cauliflower cheese soup a few weeks ago which was equally as gorgeous – but you expect that from a soup with cheese in it – not from a soup containing plain old butternut squash.

As a fustrated creative living in a suit’s body in an ad agency, I have been thinking a lot about creativity, and reading a lot too. People tend to pigeon hole creativity to pretty visuals and actual pictures or designs – and I was guilty of that for a long time – which is why I came into the industry as a suit and not a creative (can’t be a creative – I can’t draw).

There are tons of successful businesses that think creatively about everything – I suppose it’s where “thinking outside the box ” came from (yet few who claim to actually do). Since tapping into my inner creative I feel much more free, excited and motivated, that anything is possible – and it really is, if you put your mind to it.. I guess that’s why I started a blog really – inspired by Libby Davy from Authentic Blogging – who got me very excited about the potential of blogging.

The point of this post is to inspire – so feel free to post anything that inspires you…
