Praia da Luz, Portugal

It’s that time of year when us Brits jet off in search of warmer climates because ours is so bloody poor (I’m looking out my window right now and the sky is covered in cloud… IT’S JULY!). I’ve recently returned from a week in Portugal with my boyfriend and his family and I miss it…

We Stand Together

Today, my heart has been with those who have lost their loved ones in the Manchester terror attack. Waking up to the news this morning, I just couldn’t believe what I was hearing – that a sick suicide bomber caused destruction at an Ariana Grande concert.

National Vegetarian Week

Hey lovely readers! I’m sure your social media feeds have been dominated by the fact that it’s National Vegetarian Week! Although I’m not a strict vegetarian myself, a large part of my diet excludes meat, simply because I’m not a big fan and I don’t like to cook with it. I also recognise that there…
