In the Kitchen: Autumnal Overnight Oats

  When it comes to weekday breakfasts I tend to eat at work rather than at home. I’m either out of the house by 6:15 to get my swim in or I’m spending as long as possible in bed before leaving at 7:30. With both options sitting down to eat breakfast is not on the… Read more »

In the Kitchen: Homemade Baked Beans Recipe

Today I’m sharing one of my favourite recipes of the moment; my homemade baked beans recipe. Baked beans are delicious year round, but particularly as we wave goodbye to summer and enter the darker months of autumn, when comfort food is essential.

In the Kitchen: Aubergine Bake

Getting Crafty: DIY Vanilla Body Scrub

Every year the besties and I have a Christmas weekend away somewhere in the UK where we watch Christmas films, don festive knitwear, catch up, eat all the food and swap presents.

In the Kitchen: Mocha Cupcakes

  Let’s talk about cupcakes. Cupcakes, are the best thing ever. There’s something about the size of them and the ratio of icing to cake that feels so decadent.
