A cook book for every mood…
My boyfriend and I got a beautiful cook book for Christmas – thank you Ellen! It’s called NOPI and has impressive recipes, perfect for showing off every now and then. Whilst flicking through the pages I realised I have hardly any cook books. So, I thought it would be fun to see what’s new and put together a healthyish wish list.

It’s Boxing Day and I’m currently sitting in bed. The last couple of days have been really nice and I’m feeling relaxed but also motivated. I’ve been eating, drinking a bit, watching loads of movies and not much else tbh. All this chilling out has got me thinking about 2018 and I’m excited for what’s to come. 2017 has been a year of growth and I’m happy to end it having ironed out some of the creases in my life. I’ve managed to create a balance amongst my careers which I’ve been trying to do for the last few years. In addition the blog has helped me to develop a better understanding of who I am and where I’m going. All in all things are really good and I’m feeling pretty darn grateful. View Post
I just wanna feel warm…
Early mornings and the cold scare me. The thought of waking up when it’s still dark and having to venturing outside, fills me with dread. I’ve made sure it doesn’t happen often but when it does it’s usually to catch a flight. Nearly always booked by a friend trying to save money and maximise the time away. If it’s up to me I always fly during the day. Anything to avoid waking up when it’s dark and cold. View Post
Christmas is one of the few times throughout the year when most of us have some time for ourselves. In addition to cooking, eating, spending time with the family. More eating, sleeping (can’t wait for that) and watching movies. I really want to find some inspiration. The new year is about to come knocking and I want to put my best foot forward. If you also want to start the new year motivated and on the right track. Then I have some ideas to get the most from your Christmas break.
It’s about planting seeds for a long career…
Blogging is a hot topic. People ask me questions all the time, mainly about how to earn money.
It’s one thing to get some followers on instagram. But if you want to make a career from this (and one with longevity) then it’s useful to make a plan. The bloggers who are big now started 5-10 years ago when things were much easier. Now the rules have changed and it’s harder than ever to cut through the noise and get noticed. I have a personal list of blogging do’s and don’ts – and it’s the don’ts that are most important.
