I’ve decided it’s time to expand my beauty section so I thought I’d share with you my current weekend makeup look. I’m using a mix of affordable high-street products and a few of my more expensive favourites. I’m also experimenting with a few brands that I’ve recently discovered.

I was super excited when I heard Lizzie and Dom were opening the Little Acre Kitchen in St Ives! With Lizzie being so successful with her beautiful events company and Dom being an amazing chef with his food business, this place is bound to be a tasty success.
I’ve recently been enjoying blueberry smoothies and I wanted to share a quick recipe with you guys! I always used to use water in my smoothies, but since I started running I’ve noticed they just aren’t filling me up enough. That’s when I discovered BOB Milk! But hang on, who is Bob!? So BOB stands
I was invited along with a few other bloggers to Peterborough to hear about some of the exciting things Queensgate Shopping Centre are planning and some of the new stores opening.
Last week I was challenged by Linda McCartney Foods to go vegetarian for National Vegetarian Week, with their help! Linda McCartney Foods are celebrating their 25th anniversary this year which is really quite incredible. I’m not a vegetarian and I’ve never bought any of their foods before, but I thought it would be really fun to do the challenge and try out what it would really be like being a vegetarian… and to find out if I could actually make it a week without eating meat! I’m sure I have readers who are vegetarian, or at least trying to cut back on meat like we all should be doing, so I gratefully accepted the challenge!
When the #CambMeetUp group invited me to the Catesby’s event I put it in the diary straight away! I’ve always loved their shop; my mum used to bring home items from them when it used to be in Wells, Norfolk. Since then they’ve moved to Cambridge and I now live in my own place, and
So a couple of weeks ago I had something rather exciting through my letter box, rather than the usual bills or catalogs! It turns out I’d been sent some Grand Designs Live tickets by Smeg as I won a competition they ran. I love Grand Designs so I was so excited to attend the event for the 1st time!
If you follow me on Instagram you’ll probably know by now that I LOVE flowers. I did some work experience in a florist when I was younger and that was the beginning of my love and appreciation for flowers. Since moving into my own place I can’t resist having various flowers around my home.
On Saturday I was invited to a preview of the Eat Cambridge main event at the Corn Exchange. It was lovely walking around with Pippa, and my first thought was wow… we’re so spoilt for lovely independent food in Cambridgeshire! It’s so great to see. It was also nice putting faces to lots of the
When the invite came through for the Sticks’n’Sushi preview event I was excited to try out a brand new restaurant in Cambridge, but I was also a little apprehensive because I don’t like sushi and don’t eat raw fish! I knew M would enjoy the sushi side of things so my challenge was whether I could go and enjoy the place without eating sushi… and the answer is a huge YES!! I know there will be readers like me who don’t like sushi so I’m so happy to show you my wonderful experience with this new restaurant.
I’m welcoming Michael to write a bit about this meal as it was his turn to cook tonight. We thought we’d both make sure to cook one Gousto meal each to see what it’s like before we commit to a subscription. I must add add that M is much better at sticking to recipes than
This is my favourite scent at the moment. The fact we had snow and sleet last week just made need something to remind me it’s actually spring and not winter! This scent did an amazing job at keeping me smiling and it has such a lovely positive smell (although aren’t all there scents just amazing!?). Let me know if you have any of the Jo Malone fragrances and what your favourite is!
