Hello! Long time no post.
Tanya Burr is a woman of many talents, but it’s her baking book that may be my favourite venture of hers so far. I can’t recall any other book where I have tried, tested and succeeded at so many recipes in such a short period of time – so I thought I would share one of them today.
Finding a lunch spot on a Saturday in Bristol can be overwhelming. There are so many options for a variety of appetites and occasions all over the city, but when friends of mine suggested tapas at Pata Negra a few weeks ago I was excited to try something new.
You may be familiar with the term, FOMO – the fear of missing out. I’m unlikely to be the only person guilty of succumbing to this feeling, especially when faced with a clash of events or a disruption to plans with friends. When fomo strikes, it can send you into a crazy mindset that leads you to believe that whatever else you do in that period of time won’t be as fun or as significant, usually taking you on a downward spiral of misery and despair… well, I’ve had enough of feeling that way!
A good friend of mine recently advised me to re-train my brain into looking at the positive side of missing out on events and occasions, and since doing so I haven’t felt the fear since.
A 9-piece Indie Orchestra have escaped their home turf in Melbourne, Australia to invade British soil… chaos ensues.
I’m a RomCom lover.
And I’m guilty of filtering photos.
But that’s not my revelation. Read on for the big reveal…
Picnic season in the UK is sporadic. There isn’t a particular month that shines brighter than the other, you just need to prepare yourself for a spontaneous afternoon here and there.
A few Sunday’s ago the sun came out so I made some last minute picnic plans with a friend. We made a quick dash to the supermarket for food essentials before heading off in the direction of our local park.
I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again – living in the Cotswolds is pretty awesome. With so many dreamy attractions to visit, weekends around here are never boring.
Yesterday I ventured out into the countryside and there was only one place on my mind…
Summer is officially here… well, sort of!
I was kindly invited along a couple of weeks ago to sample The Ox in Cheltenham’s new cocktail menu – an offer I couldn’t refuse!
Sunday is the new Saturday.
There’s something about waking up on a Sunday morning that I’ve grown to love over the past few years – the smell of brunch and a fresh cup of coffee with a cookery show on the telly, and usually a day of adventure ahead.
A few Sundays ago, I found myself in a slightly different routine to usual…
Last week, in a moment of madness, I decided I would spend three days in a social media free zone.
An easy task for some, a challenge for me.
I thought I would reflect on the experience, sharing my honest thoughts on the digital detox and how I feel about being back online.
