Sunday In Food

Sunday, 28 September 2014


Over summer I've noticed a real improvement in the quality of my cooking, not necessarily due to any particular change in skill, simply an increased passion for cooking and really thinking about flavours, ingredients and how I can tweak recipes. So I thought, given that its a Sunday and therefore you're likely to have a little more time than usual to whip up something delicious, I'd share with you three of my latest culinary successes. Conveniently enough breakfast, Sunday lunch and dinner recipes, perfect for a truly indulgent Sunday.

A Lesson In: Lectures

Wednesday, 24 September 2014

Labels: ,

Freshers week has been and gone, you're probably feeling a little worse for wear, and I bet all you want to do is sleep. Unfortunately you'll have to crawl out of your cosy bed and venture outside, as lectures have begun! It's the sad truth that realistically we go to University to learn, and that means attending lectures, however if you can get into some good habits early (i.e actually attending them) then lectures aren't so bad. And luckily for you, I'm here to help.

You Beauty Discovery Box - September

Sunday, 21 September 2014


A week or so ago the postman delivered a little treat in the form of You Beauty's discovery box, a beauty box that before a few weeks ago I'd never heard of, and was intrigued to try. Well, I've had a week to play around with the products, so I can now report back to you with my thoughts!

A Chilly Thursday's Walk

Thursday, 18 September 2014


Last Thursday, Mum and I jumped in the car with Nellie the dog and visited one of our favourite walking spots in Suffolk, to make the most of the beautiful countryside before she and Dad pack their bags and move to Wales (warning: picture heavy post!).

A Lesson In: University Life

Wednesday, 17 September 2014

Labels: ,

So by this point you're probably either packed and ready to go, or have unpacked your tiny new university bedroom and have waved goodbye to Mum and Dad. You're probably a little nervous, or a lot nervous, tearful and unsure of just how you're going to cope living all by yourself. Most of this anxiety will fade over time, you'll get into a routine, learn what you do and don't need from a food shop, and how to work the washing machine. But nonetheless there are some things that I learned from my first year experience that may just help you get settled in that little bit faster.

The Lust List

Sunday, 14 September 2014

Labels: ,

I'm a little lot organised, and that means one thing: bookmarks, and lots of them. Every time I come across something I want to buy or think I may at some point want to buy, it gets bookmarked. Over time, most bookmarks are culled, but a select few will survive for days, weeks, perhaps months. It is these bookmarks which make up what I like to call the 'lust list' - a collection of items which I occasionally like to oggle and will, perhaps, purchase...

A Lesson In: Style

Wednesday, 10 September 2014

Labels: ,

Another week has been and gone, which means one thing - another week closer to freshers. A lot of you, like me, will be frantically shoving every item of clothing you can into every suitcase you can find, after all who knows what university life will throw at you? Why wouldn't you need three different leather jackets? As such, this week I'll be focusing on the style items you should be giving top packing priority to, and the items you should perhaps leave in a dark corner of your wardrobe at home.

The Ultimate Lunchtime Salad

Sunday, 7 September 2014


In a strange twist of events, in the last week our usually empty fridge was full of delights such as sundried tomatoes (home made at that), olives, low fat cheese and spinach. A lot of spinach. And so this little baby was born - filling, healthy and tasty to boot, say hello to your newest lunchtime buddy!

A Lesson In: Beauty

Wednesday, 3 September 2014

Labels: ,

As I'm sure most first time bloggers do, I've spent a lot of time in the last fortnight debating what my first post should be. I toyed with the idea of a cheesy introductory post, or the classic 'monthly favourites', before finally deciding on posting something a little more original. And so here it is, my first ever blog post! Enjoy...
