I have seen lots of people talk about Degustabox before – so when I was offered the chance to review a January’s subscription box I of course said yes – plus why would I say no to food. Degustabox is a monthly subscription box containing a range of food and drink products for your to try for £12.99 a month. It’s a great way to try some new or different brands than you usually would, and it’s always fun getting… View Post

Today is Pancake Day! Every year it always seems to crêpe up on me (mwahaha), and I’ve forgotten to get anything that I need to make them. I used to always buy a bag of the mix, but I realised last year that you really don’t need a ready made mix at all, and they are so easy to make (but not necessarily get right) and we’ve usually got the main ingredients in already.

Yesterday some of my lovely family got together for a lovely lighthearted evening of fun, courtesy of Popchips! Popchips have recently launched two lovely Limited Edition flavours; Sea Salt, Garlic and Rosemary, and Sea Salt, Caramelised Onion and Thyme.

With that in mind, Tesco… View Post

I’d actually never even heard of Aperol until recently and had no idea what it is. But this cocktail has been popular for years in Europe and this year everyone who’s anyone has started drinking it here too. Aperol is an aperitif from Italy that has been around since… View Post

I was recently challenged by Legal and General to try mindful eating for a week. Mindfulness is a mental and physical practice that’s all about becoming more aware of the present moment. It involves taking a moment to stop and notice the thoughts running through your head which in turn helps to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. Mindful eating therefore, is about increasing your awareness of what you are eating and why you are eating it, thinking about what… View Post
