Afternoon Tea at Hotel du Vin

No girly catch up is without bubbles and bubbles are extremely versatile. When bubbles are applied to cake and sandwiches, it’s an unbeatable combination! This weekend, me and my dear friends Lauren and Gemma (who I miss lots) had a very overdue catch up and decided the only way to mark the catch up would…

Family Feastin’

Family get together’s are the best excuse to cook, try the things you wouldn’t necessarily find the time to test out and generally have fun with your cooking. When we had a family get together a few weeks back, me and Mum decided to cook up a Middle Eastern storm with houmous, falafel and tabbouleh…

Bryant Park, New York revisited

Okay, so in my wrap up about my favourite things about New York  back in January, number one in my list was the gorgeous Bryant Park. To be perfectly honest, this place really hasn’t left my thoughts since I came home in December and I cannot wait for the day when I can return there, Le…

An ode to Mum

To all the Mum’s out there who dry tears, kiss bumps and bruises better, give advice, tell you “you can’t go out wearing that”, holds your hand, protects, worries until the dead of night, sacrifices the last biscuit so you don’t go without, makes juice concoctions to flush away illnesses, risks illness to look after…

Guilt-Free (ish) chili con carne…

  Chili con carne is one of those meals that gets you. it just gets you. The beauty of it is that it’s so versatile that you can pretty much do anything with it and it still tastes utterly incredible. Not a fan of heat? you make make it mild, want a meal so hot…

The girls guide to rugby

Once Christmas is over, you’ve got that really horrendous period of time between Christmas and Easter which is called January, February and March – well depending on when we feel like celebrating Easter anyways. January consists of dragging ourselves and that Jabba the Hutt extra festive weight around wondering when it’s safe to check our…

A veggie brunch

Sundays should be lazy. After all, it’s the day of rest. Sunday’s should also be about food. Whether it’s a scrummy brunch or an epic roast. Or if you’re feeling fancy both. But it’s all about a good brunch to kick those lazy sunday vibes into touch and if you’re looking for some breakfast inspiration…

So, let’s discuss New York

That concrete jungle where dreams are made of.. Just before Christmas, I was very lucky to spend 5 glorious and festive filled days in New York City. It’s fast become one of my favourite places in the world. Now, if I were to create a post for every day I spent there, I would probably…
