One of my favourite breakfasts is overnight oats. I love them because .... 1) They are quick and easy to prepare 2) You prepare them the night before so it gives you an extra 10 minutes in bed! 3) They taste delicious 4) There are so many different ways to make them, they never get… Continue reading Overnight Oats
I think second only to seeing family and friends, travel is what I have missed the most in this last year. At the moment travelling anywhere seems an amazing prospect. I miss the research, the planning, the countdown, that giddy feeling as you board the plane - that long awaited trip is actually happening! Our… Continue reading Wanderlust
Bracing myself against Storm Dennis earlier in the year, before all the Covid madness. I saw a meme on Instagram near the start of lockdown that said we’re not all in the same boat but we are all in the same storm.

I feel it is a bit of a creative outlet for me. I've always loved wearing colour and putting things together. When I started to adapt my lifestyle I… Continue reading Style is a state of mind

The gluten or dairy wasn't so bad as there were so many alternatives out there, but onions, garlic and chilli were my go to flavours… Continue reading Top ten foods to enjoy in 2020
I love Christmas. I’m blessed with wonderful family and friends and I love all the party going, hosting and socialising. However I have learnt that actually it is a time when listening to your body is equally as important. We all know there can be a lot of pressure for this time of year to… Continue reading It’s the most wonderful time of the year?
If you have never suffered from anxiety it can be really hard to understand. If you suffer from anxiety it can be really hard to explain.
