    My Self Care Ideas for the Atypical // Lifestyle

    Even if you have a busy life or not, Self Care is an extremely important part of anyone’s day. Everyone seems to be sharing their top tips at self care lately and while they are fantastic, some things on their list arent for me. Jenny from Jenny in Neverland shared on her blog some delightful and Unusual self care ideas and it inspired me to share some of my own. I am not the typical normal girl, without sounding like I think I am better than others, and while I do love the odd candle and bath, I have some unusual self care activities that I do to help me calm and relax at home.   T H E   I M P O R T A N C E   O F   S E L F – C A R E. We often find that in our busy lives that we forget the most important person when it comes to caring, ourselves. We more often than not work hard but rarely play hard too, taking time out for ourselves during the busy manic rush of the week is overlooked and ignored. But we must always find time to practice self care… View Post

    What we Eat in a Week // Food

    This week has been a long one for me, I decided I wanted to share with you what we eat during the week as a family. What we eat is usually a mixture of good ol’ fashioned home cookin’ and some simple easy meals that are tried and tested. I always try and make sure that I cook from fresh every day, however sometimes finding whatever is in the freezer is the way to go for the busy life. In this post I am going to share with you what we eat this week, I might turn it into a series but I am not sure yet, a test the waters kind of post. Perhaps it will inspire you to try some new recipes as well. Almost all the recipes I will share here have been found on the wonderful Pinterest and have been cooked before. W H Y  P I N T E R E S T ? I mean, why not? Pinterest as you know is a wonderful website that, at its core, is almost like a microblog. content creators use it to share crafts, food and inspirational ideas for homes on it. I use it almost every… View Post

    My Nan’s Stew // Recipes

    Growing up I used to spend Thursdays after school over my nanny and granddads house, this was a day when food was cooked for the family once a week. One of the meals was a chicken stew and that was my favorite dish as a child, you know besides fish and chips! My nan’s stew was of course chicken and what I make today is lamb but this is after years and years of experimenting different flavors and tastes to create something that’s inspired by my nan and her cooking but made into something I added my own spin to it. F R E S H  I S  B E S T The best ingredients are almost always fresh, and whenever I make this dish I go out of my way to make sure I get the fresh products to add into the pot, usually I buy all my ingredients in my local supermarkets but wherever you source your food is down to you. With the meat, once again its all dependent on what kind of meat you wish to have in your stew, this one is a lamb stew and I make sure to get diced shoulder. However if… View Post

    Sightings From April // Photography

    S I G H T I N G ‘ S  F R O M  A P R I L I love photography! A few years ago I joined in with a post that another blogger did which was called ‘sightings from..‘. I am unsure if she does the post herself anymore but basically throughout the month of photograph taking you pick your favorites from the end of the month and share them. she had this post on her blog that shared hers and one photo from the collection of other bloggers who also joined in. I enjoyed going it so much then and now that I am jumping back into blogging again I thought what better way than to do this kind of post style again. I am of course big into photography having tried to make sure that my camera comes with me whenever I go on my journeys, i had enough to share with you this month. A P R I L  2 0 2 1. This month has been bright and beautiful and of course full of adventure, Neil and I went to Brighton which has been a city I have always wanted to visit but never… View Post

    Easter Trail at Cammas Hall // Days Out

    Now I realize this is a little late to the party post but I wanted to share with you what fun we had during the Easter holidays this year, given that lockdown was easing and that it was my birthday on the day we went as well. Easter Adventure time! Cammas Hall is a place ive shared a few times here, we go when we can with my mum whenever the strawberries are out in full bloom and ready for good eats or of course when the pumpkins are ready for picking for Halloween, but I’ve never used the opportunity to go there for any of their other events, this one was a wonderful and fun Easter event that continued through the Easter holidays so there was plenty of time for you to go and enjoy the sunshine and fun. Cammas Hall Farm is found just outside of Harlow in a small village, neatly tucked away from the busy life of the world, I have always enjoyed going there, I often describe it a fun place to photograph as a lot of my fruit photos that I’ve taken have come from here, they house a range of wonderful fruits and… View Post
