Life // Weekend Treats

New lipstick, Glamour magazine, updating my diary sat in the sun on a lovely Saturday morning drinking fruit tea.    This was me yesterday morning. It was a beautiful day with a basic to-do list: sweep, do the ironing, relax. Those are my favourite kinda weekends. Yes it’s great to be busy and have a…

Food // Revs De Cuba New Menu Review

Earlier this week my mum and I headed into Manchester to spend the afternoon having a nosey around the shops and taking a pit stop at Revolucion De Cuba for lunch. They’ve recently launched a new menu complete with a range of tasty tapas style dishes to share, lots of different mains, including burgers, rissoto…

Food // Spicy Chicken Thighs & Sweet Potato Mash

Sometimes you’ve got to stray out of your comfort zone and try something new….which is exactly what happened earlier this week when the contents of my fridge consisted of 2 courgettes, 3 chickens thighs, a red onion and 2 sweet potatoes… So, naturally I chucked a load of spices into the mix and marinated the…

Careers // How I Got My Job in Copywriting

I haven’t really blogged about my job before but with the blogging industry taking centre stage the last year or so and media type jobs, such as social media, PR, copywriting and blogger outreach becoming highly sought after careers, I thought I’d blog about my own career to date. I graduated six years ago with…

Food // Chicken with Leeks, Mushrooms and Cream Cheese

Sometimes I cook without a recipe in mind and earlier this week, after a supermarket dash for some of my favourite ingredients, I created a yummy, delicious dish as I went along. I love creamy chicken pasta dishes and wanted to add some new veggies to my fridge and this was how my Chicken in…

Food // Chilli & Sweet Potato Chips

Chilli is one of my go-to meals. I just love cooking a big batch up filled with loads of veggies and mince meat.  It’s one of those one pot dishes that’s so simple to do and requires little effort – bar the chopping of veggies and the washing up afterwards!  It’s great to make at…

Food // Peppers, Celery and Bacon Pasta 

I try and cook fresh homemade meals as many nights of the week as I can. But sometimes, as the fridge starts to empty out, you need to get inventive with your lack of ingredients. And that’s how this dish came to life!  I discovered one red pepper, a stick of celery, 4 rashers of…

Life // Dreaming of Summer Destinations

It may be cold and the middle of February but I’ve defo started to think about my summer holiday. I’ve not been on a proper beach holiday in years and after a crazy 12 months full of work, weddings and everything in-between, I’m ready to escape reality for some much needed sun. So where do…

Food // Giving up for Lent

I never really do anything for Lent. I always tell myself I’ll attempt to give something up but after a couple of days I give in and carry on as before. But after indulging a little too much lately, I thought it would be the much needed kick up the butt I need to give…

Life // The Sunday Edit

   This week I finally reclaimed my social life after weeks of spending time at home.  Friday night I chucked together the leftover veggies I had in my fridge with some chicken and ended up making the most delicious enchalladas. Winner! Yesterday was date night and what a day it was! We started with a…

Life // Why blog in 2016?

Blogging has shifted from being a place to house an online diary to becoming a massive industry that’s presenting ordinary people as cover girls and those to aspire to become. I started this very blog back in the summer of 2010 to build a portfolio of work, articles rather to showcase in future job interviews….
