Autumnal Spa Getaway at Ragdale

Ragdale, Ragdale, Ragdale – my favourite place to escape from London for a bit of R&R! Now an annual ‘girl’s trip’, to say I was excited about our weekend getaway was an understatement. I also can’t remember the last time that Lu, Mumma and I had some quality time together to gossip, drink fizz and […]

Brussels in 48 Hours

So, I haven’t blogged for a couple of months now and I have to say I’ve really missed it. However, I started a new job in the middle of summer and it’s somewhat preoccupied me – not in a bad way, I absolutely love it! But it has meant that balancing everything has been a […]

Copenhagen City Break

I bought G flights to Copenhagen last Christmas and although it seems like miles away now, we thought it would be best to go in summer – so we booked for 3 nights for July. We bought a guidebook before we went and asked friends and family who had visited for things to do and […]

‘The’ Oat & Raisin Cookies

Possibly the greatest cookie recipe of all time. Yes, that’s a big statement… Mumma and I made these cookies a while back and I remember wondering why we’d ever pick oat and raisin cookies over chocolate. Usually I found oat and raisin cookies dry and pretty tough, so I was sceptical. But, I love baking […]

Easy One-Pan Shakshuka

Brunch is one of G and I’s favourite meals and whilst training for our Half Marathon we have been getting up early to go to the gym or completing a long run on our weekend mornings. When we are back we want nothing more than a scrumptious and filling brekky to fuel us up for […]

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 […]

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. Now, no longer do I panic buy dinner in the evening and end up with something unimaginative or bland – instead I’m making […]

Pesto Tortilla Pizza with Spinach, Onion and Feta

Eating healthily for me, doesn’t mean banning carbs or never enjoying treats, it’s all about balance. Balance is a word thrown around all over the place and of course, it means different things to everyone. For me, all my meals (I would say 99% of them) are fresh and fully homemade – none of this […]

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 […]
