Food // Baking the perfect Victoria sponge 

It’s been a while since I’ve baked and with Christmas fast approaching, I thought it was time to don my apron and bake a cake for the family to enjoy! Thanks to a very welcomed package from the lovely people over at Delicious Alchemy, a gluten-free food brand, I rustled up an old favourite in…

Home // Interiors Inspiration 

My boyfriend and I are currently looking for our first home together and whilst we keep scouring Right Move and booking viewings, I’ve been visiting garden centres and department stores to get some serious home inspo! Crisp white interiors with a mix of vintage and modern accessories are our thing and with an entire home…

Life // A Week in Pictures

“Always be thankful for everything you have” Butterscotch lattes on Saturday morning with my boyfriend in between house viewing GBK lamb and feta burger in Liverpool with friends before a trip to the Odeon to watch The Hunger Games Mumma’s homemade lasagne. My absolute favourite 💛 Scented candles on a Sunday night. Bliss.

Food // Spreading cheer with gluten-free Christmas Cake

It’s just around the corner…Christmas I mean and now’s the time to start thinking about making your Christmas cake. My Grandad used to make one every year, starting around the end of November so he could feed it with rum so it was full of flavour once the 25th arrived! This year I’ve decided to…

Food // Spicy Chicken Salad

Every now and I go on a health kick, forgoing avo and toast for a chicken salad instead. So why not enjoy a yummy chicken salad for lunch on this grey Sunday afternoon? Marinade chicken in a sachet of Nandos sauce and pop in the fridge for an hour. Fry with sweet peppers and tomatoes…

Food // My Favourite Recipe Books 

Cook books are my guilty pleasure. I love reading them, looking at the beautiful photos, deciding what to cook. I mean that’s probably why I write a food and lifestyle blog! These are the top 3 books on my bedside table at the minute – Not that kinda girl by Lena Dunham. I’m a massive…

Food // A Trip to TGI Fridays 

Last week we decided to treat ourselves to a school night trip to TGIs. Delicious American style food, huge portions and a lengthy cocktail menu – perfect! We visited the Liverpool branch based in the L1. We arrived at around half 8 and after a 10 minute wait at the bar, we were seated at…

Review // Candles of the Month 

I’ve blogged in the past about my love for Primark candles. Every time I pop in I check out their homeware range. They have a great range of scents and they cost less than a fiver too so you can’t not pick a couple up everytimd you’re in a Primark store!   Now the weathers…

Life // Sunday Coffee and Catch Ups 

This weekend has been food heavy with lots of delicious meals. Thursday welcomed a visit to the new Turtle Bay in Liverpool and Friday was a family meal kind of affair. So Sunday’s are always best spent at your own pace. A lazy morning in bed and a coffee catch up with old friends. Starbucks…

Review // Turtle Bay Liverpool: Launch Night

On Thursday my other half and I were very kindly invited along to the launch party of the brand new Turtle Bay in Liverpool. Located just off Victoria Street, a stones throw from L1, it’s the perfect location for a reggae reggae restaurant with a Carribean twist. When we arrived the party was in full…

Food // Veggie Filled Pasta Bake 

Pasta bakes are dead easy and if you pile yours with veggies, it can be on the healthy side too. I decided to fill up on broccoli, chestnut mushrooms and peppers. Oh and a portion of cheeee and chorizo too. You need something naughty to balance out the greens. What do you need? Pasta –…

Food // Chorizo and Tomato Risotto

Risotto is one of those recipes that I always chose when eating out and wonder why I don’t make it at home….and then when I gave it a go, I remembered. The constant stirring and adding stock means it’s quite time-consuming but thanks to the combo of flavours and the filling rice, it’s great for…
