Food // Lunchtime Peeves

I’m one of those organised sorts who manages to #preplikeaboss and bring both my breakfast and lunch to work at least 4 days out of 5. Tupperware is life and I love thinking of fun new lunch ideas to bring and ping in the office microwave. I don’t believe in a boring lunch and because…

Recipe // Lime Chicken & Cheesy Leeks

Sometimes I find that I make the same recipes on repeat but since I picked up a copy of the Lean in 15 cook book from Joe Wicks a few weeks ago I’ve been given fresh inspiration and want to create yummy, healthy meals again. Grilled chicken and veg is the oldest ‘healthy meal’ in…

Fashion // Week 3 #OOTD

Another weekend brings the third installment of ‘what I wore this week’. Knowing I’m posting my daily outfits means I’m thinking about the combos I’m putting together and it’s helping my shopping ban FOMO!  This week is very busy work wise and each look reflected what I was up to. Plus autumn really set in…

Fashion / The Little Red Bag

Since I first spotted it on the Zara website, I wanted the Little Red Bag. But because our holidays are out of the way, this year and next is all about serious savings. For big stuff, like a house and furniture. And this means shopping is out of the question. So I did what any…

Homeware // Autumnal Homeware Accessoriesย 

Even though we’re currently enjoying a beautiful Indian summer, at the weekend I began to turn my attention to autumn and more importantly, autumnal homeware. This autumn is the first that my boyfriend and I have spent living togetherย after we moved into our rented house last December and I’m excited to reflect the change of…

Recipe // Chicken & Chorizo Noodles

This week I’m working my way through the Lean in 15 cookery book and the latest offering was the chicken and chorizo recipe.  It’s meant to be eaten alone but after a busy day in work I wanted to pad it out a bit so I decided to add noodles. It truly is a 15…

Fashion // Week 1 #OOTDย 

House savings are taking presidence at the minute so clothes shopping has taken a back seat which means creating new outfits from the existing contents of my wardrobe!  In order to transition into Autumn and fall back in love with some old pieces, I’m trying to mix it up. And, taking daily pictures is the…

Beauty // Make-Up Academy Haul

I’m a funny stage in my life where I’m intentionally opting to spend my money on homeware and good wine for the weekends, rather than on expensive make up…which use to bring me so much joy. I needed to upgrade my make-up collection and purchase a few items…but I didn’t want to spend a fortune….

Recipe // Butternut Squash & Meatballs

This recipe was one of those nights where I had lots of leftover veg in the fridge and I was lacking on meat so I decided to defrost a pack of meatballs. I didn’t fancy cooking pasta, so I wanted to create a dish that would taste great with rice. And…I think I more than…

Recipe // Dippy Eggs and Feta

Brunch is one of my favourite meals yet I very rarely take the time to prepare it. But as we enjoyed the Bank Holiday weekend I decided to take full advantage and make an old fave – dippy eggs. Dippy eggs is the ultimate sharing dish – throw in a handful of ingredients, expertly poach…

Review // The Cricketers, Ormskirk

Living in Ormskirk more often that not, food-wise, I’m spoilt for choice. With a variety of cute cafes in the town centre specialising in brunch, pubs dotted around the surrounding postal code areas that offer light bites and dinner options and those places in the middle. Which essentially is how I’d categorise The Cricketers. My…
