Food // Autumnal Butternut Squash Soup 

The dark nights have well and truly set in meaning cosy nights in are firmly under way. Eating healthily can take a backseat in the colder months so to conquer this I’ve been making big batches of soup. Root veggies are flavour of the month and whilst I carve my pumpkin for Halloween I decided…

Weekly food shop haul

This blog is here to chat about food and beauty equally but when I’m on a health kick it shows with an array of new recipes to try. But today I thought I’d try something a bit different with my weekly food shop haul. I’m really nosey and love seeing what people pop in their…

The weekly round-up

Blog posts have been quite spare around these parts lately, with the weekly round-up appearing each Sunday.  Next week food and beauty posts will make a return but for now, here’s been my week in pictures.  Officially one week in to back on the healthy train following Slimming World again.

Weekly round-up: Sunday edit

This past week has been a bit of a whirlwind. House viewings, family time, girlie catch-ups and much needed R&R with the man friend. Deskfasts have been the way forward this week with a bowl of porridge and a mug of lemon tea pre 9am. I posted my first beauty blog in a ages talking…

Kick-starting my day

I don’t know if this is a really boring topic to blog about or not but lately I’m loving flavoured tea. I’ve never been a fan of hot drinks, generally swerving any offerings of tea of coffee for a boring glass of water. Preferably tap..it’s best, honest. But since I vowed to eat a little…

Keep your head up, keep your heart strong.

The last 7 days have been kind of strange. I spent last weekend in beautiful Shropshire with my old work girls. Tea and cake, alfresco prosecco and lots of overdue gossip was on the agenda.  The trip came at a welcome time as it was the break I needed.  However, on Monday I lost my…
