Lemon Polenta Cakes

We are moving home soon… I’m so excited! With that in mind I’ve been trying to use up food we have in the cupboards and I thought I would use some polenta to make little fairy cakes! I haven’t done any baking in a while but I really enjoy it when I have the time. We all deserve the occasional treat too! I got out my baking items and got started on these lemon polenta fairy cakes. The texture of them was divine with the moist lemon and crumbly polenta. You need to try these. I went all out on the lemon too and put it in the glaze AND icing. I hope you enjoy the recipe!

SourcedBox Review June 2017

SourcedBox is still surprising me with their delicious healthy featured snacks and when I opened the June box I couldn’t wait to dive right in and try the yummy products. The Ombar chocolate straight away stood out to me and I felt this month there were a bright array of different products amongst the bunch. I love subscription boxes like this and it is such a great way of trying products which are hard to get hold of or are things I would not have normally chosen myself. See my thoughts below… Continue reading SourcedBox Review June 2017

June 2017 Favourites

June has been a month of ups and downs for me. One highlight was my birthday trip to Brighton which was so relaxing. I hope you enjoyed reading about my trip in one of my recent blogs. I’m hoping July will be a little less stressful though as we have had to deal with a few flat issues, amongst starting our search to find somewhere else to live. I’ve found some great favourites though this month – items to add that bit of sparkle into my day when things have become a little too much. I love all these choices so much and I think they represent perfect summer vibes. Continue reading June 2017 Favourites

Dining At Bluebird Chelsea

Bluebird Chelsea is one of my favourite hang outs in London. Not only is it featured on the likes of Made In Chelsea episodes, it is such a relaxing and superior social and foody venue. It used to be an art deco garage built for a motor company but now it is a stunning restaurant, bar, café and courtyard, food store and wine cellar. You could literally spend hours catching up with friends over luxurious food and drinks. Continue reading Dining At Bluebird Chelsea

How To Spend A Weekend In Brighton…

Brighton is becoming one of my favourite seaside getaways. Being around an hour travel from London by train, it makes it the perfect place to escape for a weekend. I recently went to Brighton for a birthday surprise planned by my boyfriend and it was so lovely and relaxing. We had been to Brighton before and so knew a few places to visit…. which mostly involved eating, relaxing and strolling along the beautiful pebbled beach. So, I thought I would write about my top picks from spending a weekend in Brighton. These I think you will like… Continue reading How To Spend A Weekend In Brighton…

SourcedBox Review May 2017

The May SourcedBox definitely won the beauty awards and it also didn’t disappoint on taste. I love this healthy subscription service and if you are new to SourcedBox I would not hesitate to recommend it. I much prefer swapping a sugary snack to one that will keep my energy levels sustained. Don’t get me wrong, I still love the odd treat but with SourcedBox I feel like the goodies are treats and I always look forward to trying new flavour combinations I would not I chosen myself. I have been surprised by a few of this month’s items (in a good way). Subscription boxes are great ways to try new things and this is one subscription I get so excited about. See my thoughts below… Continue reading SourcedBox Review May 2017

What I Eat In A Day 2

It’s time for another “What I eat in a day” post and this time it’s a bit different as I went out for lunch so you can see what I eat when I’m with friends. I hope you enjoy this post!

SourcedBox Review April 2017

I always love receiving my SourcedBox delivery and the April 2017 SourcedBox did not disappoint. I love doing these monthly SourcedBox reviews, however I thought I would mix things up a little this month and change the format somewhat. I hope you like this new style. Let me know in the comments what you think and whether you prefer it or whether you want me to go back to the old format? Do you still like reading these healthy snacks posts? What would you like out of them? I’m always happy to receive ideas and this is by no means a sponsored post as I do the SourcedBox posts for fun, as I am passionate about healthy eating. So, I want you to enjoy them to! Anyway, enough ramble, let’s begin! Continue reading SourcedBox Review April 2017

Chocolate For Dinner… Rabot 1745

A dinner themed with chocolate… What could be better? Rabot 1745 is one of my favourite eateries in London and why wouldn’t it be when it is Hotel Chocolat’s creation? I hadn’t dined in the evening there before but had tried their Afternoon Tea so I knew I was in for a treat. Me and my boyfriend decided to have a little date night and it was lovely to enjoy fabulous food, that was exciting and delicious. When we go out for dinner we now prefer to choose somewhere memorable and have less dates out… that way it is more special and something to appreciate. We also enjoy cooking at home on a more everyday basis. Continue reading Chocolate For Dinner… Rabot 1745
