The Spa at the Intercontinental

Not everyone can be 100% all of the time and that is most definitely okay – you just need to recognise when you need a little TLC. Gloomy weather doesn’t help the positive mental attitude either, but by occasionally treating yourself or having a timeout you can really improve your mental wellbeing. That’s why I […]

Bang Bang Cauliflower Bites

G and I eat together most nights, even if that means cooking a little later. For me, this is an important part of my day where I can A) find out what G has been up to and B) unload all of my thoughts that I’ve had throughout the day verbally, that I haven’t been […]

It’s Pancake Day!

No time for reading, more time for flipping! This is a simple, but yummy take on the simple crepe recipe, using whole-wheat flour, skimmed milk and water. Top your pancakes with whatever you fancy – I always get every option out and then see what I fancy when it’s on my plate! Peanut butter, yoghurt […]

Courgette & Lentil ‘Veggie-Balls’

Eating and experimenting with vegetarian food in January really did get me excited to come home every day to try something new. So, I’ve continued doing just that since the month ended.

Eating healthily for me, doesn’t mean banning carbs or never enjoying treats, it’s all about balance.

I’m hoping to gradually share all the fantastically yummy food that I’ve created or made with you over the next few […]

Curried Root Veg Filo Pie

As I mentioned in my ‘Goals and Hopes for 2019’ blog post, G and I have decided to reset our bodies by eating vegetarian food for a month. At first G was sceptical but about a week in he really got into the swing of things and was probably eating healthier, better and more yummy […]

Hopes and Goals for 2019

A new year marks another milestone for us to transform our lives and I’m sure you have heard plenty of ‘new year, new me’ being flung around. Yet, perhaps a better way of starting a positive mindset is by encouraging the best version of yourself, rather than changing so much that you aren’t being true […]

However, now that the festivities are over we can reminisce the memories and I can finally get back to my blog to share with you my top, favourite, impossible-to-compete-with recipe of the season… Salted Caramel Yule Log! Even my older brother, who enjoys to hate my […]

Our Romantic Getaway to Edinburgh

With everything from old cobbled streets, boutique interior design shops, fine dining venues to suit all tastes and one of the UK’s best Christmas Markets – it was no surprise that Edinburgh has been on the top of my list for a winter weekend getaway. So, for G and I’s 4 years, we took a […]
