‘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 […]

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.

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.

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 […]

Anassa Hotel in Cyprus

When August comes to an end summer is officially over and everyone gets back into their usual routines of work and starts to get their winter wardrobes out. Luckily for me, the end of summer came later than usual… I had not been to Cyprus before, but the thought of going away in October was […]

Puerto de Rico Gran Canaria

With September now in full swing and the shops being fully stocked in autumn knitwear, fluffy coats and cashmere scarves, Summer 2018 is officially over. And while that doesn’t mean the holidaying is necessarily at its end too (I have a break away next week aghhhh!) I hope we can all look back at the […]
