Food // Avocado & Feta Toast

A simplistic brunch just made for the weekends. I’m a fully signed up member of the avocado club. Combine that with freshly toasted bread, crumbly feta cheese and a handful of ripe cherry toms and you’ve got a recipe for success.  It’s my weekend go-to when I’m relaxing at home cos it’s just so easy…

Interiors // Creating Our Perfect Kitchen

I first blogged about moving home back in December shortly after we’d moved in and when blogging took a backseat. But, now we’re nearing the end of January (the worst month for many) and the boxes are unpacked, I thought I’d blog more about our lovely 3 bed detached. As we’ve moved into a rental,…

Beauty // January Favourites

I don’t really feature monthly favourites but I’m really loving taking the time each morning to do my make up and then take it off and leave my skin feeling fresh at night.     So let’s start with Sure deoderant. An essential I’m sure you’ll agree. I picked this up in a pound shop and…

Travel // 24 Hours in Edinburgh

Last weekend my Mumma and I headed up to Edinburgh as part of her belated 60th birthday present. We spent 24 hours in the city and managed to pack lots into our time. Things to see / do  Edinburgh Castle. Located just at the top of the Royal Mile, you get an excellent view of…

Food // Date Night Cookbook

Home // Candles of the Month

As we progress through the first month of 2016, I’ve put all the Christmassy scented candles away and started to reintroduce fruity scents into our home.

Beauty // Annual Soap and Glory Haul

Soap and Glory are one of my favourite brands and every January my bathroom resembles an aisle in Boots as my family and friends stock up! I’ve currently got a mix of the old faithfuls and the new-ish lime scented Sugar Crush range on the go. Righteous butter and Clean On Me are my two…

Food // My Penne Bolognese Recipe

Since we moved into our new home, I’ve loved having my very own kitchen and space to cook. I blogged last week about being quite poorly over the New Year but now I’m out of hospital and back home, I’m upping our veggie intake and getting into the swing of making meals from scratch again!…

Beauty // Nivea Skincare

It’s been a while since I’ve covered beauty around these parts so what better time to get back into it than January! I haven’t touched a drop of alcohol now for 3 weeks and my skin and body are feeling so much better for it, but I need to re-address my skincare routine as it’s…

Life // Personal Health Update 

So I’m currently on my second stint in hospital. A chest infection and sore throat quickly escalated into quinsy (I know, what’s that?!), a rare form of tonsilitis and now an abscess. Lovely start to 2016 hey? It all began last Monday with the pain growing rapidly. I can’t complain about the hospital staff as…
