Food // Do you enjoy home cooking?

Following a catch-up with the girls earlier this week over a delicious Italian takeaway, (no that doesn’t mean just pizza, we had pasta too!) and a discussion around home cooking and preparing meals, it occurred to me that everyone had a different take on this. For me, it’s how I relax. During the week I…

Review // The Tea Makers Loose Leaf Tea

Many of us require a freshly brewed cup of tea to either start or finish the day, but my kind of proffered tea is often something a little bit different… When The Tea Makers of London got in touch, asking if I’d like to review their latest Darjeeling black teas I decided to give it…

Recipes // Open Fajita Wrap

Here on this blog I try to showcase as many different recipes as I can, but I find it always comes back to Mexican. It’s the type of food I love to eat and enjoy in equal measures. It could be a chicken, beef or even a prawn dish but introduce soft tortilla wraps, spicy…

Fashion // Swimwear Edit

Another day, another post featuring my favourite bikini I wore in Morroco.  I must admit this bikini isn’t exactly new, it’s actually been in my swimwear drawer for a few years after picking it up in Matalan a couple of years ago. I love the white leopard print design and cute turquoise detail.      I…

I’m writing this post from the comfort of my sofa, with a small dog on my lap and Love Island catch up on the telly after spending the last 10 days in Marrakech. Morroco was everything I imagined – it was such a beautiful country, full of colour and hot hot hot! So, as I…

Food // Homemade Beetroot Houmous

Since I changed jobs last month I’ve had to take my breakfast and lunch to work each day, and sometimes I get bored of my options.  I love beetroot houmous but we’re nowhere near a large supermarket, so I decided to attempt to make my own!     I purchased all the ingredients in Aldi, so…
