    What We Eat in a Week // Week 2 // Food

    Another week of cooking some delicious meals for my family has come and gone. Last week I shared with you What we eat in a week and I really enjoyed not only cooking new things, but sharing them on my blog too. The food we eat this week covers from some yummy soup and an amazing rice dish along with some naughty doughnuts from Tim Hortons. Last weeks meals had really been enjoyed by everyone who ate them and I very much enjoyed cooking them. Once again the majority of what we eat this week have been found on the wonderful Pinterest which I praised in my previous post as a fantastic website for finding food ideas, crafts and even home decoration tips which will of course come in handy when we finally move into our new home. W H A T   W E   E A T Sunday – 90’s Meal – This dinner was a lazy one, so lazy that I didn’t even take a photograph of it, given that my food order wasn’t coming until Monday I raided my freezer and found potato waffles, chicken burgers and some peas! I can imagine this is a common meal for families… View Post

    How to Deal with Migraines // Health

    I struggle with migraines. Once or twice a month I will get one that often lasts for more than a few days and it honestly takes it out of me so much so that I fail at doing any of my self care and completely zone out of life. As far as I can remember I’ve had horrifically bad headaches. It took me suffering with a headache in the middle of a dentist appointment to make me realize I needed to do something about it and find ways of how to deal with migraines. W H A T   I  S   A   M I G R A I N E A migraine, according to the NHS website is an extremely painful headache that the causes are in fact unknown, many people have reported that their migraines have been triggered by smell, food, periods and stress. However it is believed to be much like depression and simply a chemical imbalance and also you might be genetically more inclined to suffer from them. However with anything to do with health you must always talk to a doctor and discuss any possible underlining issues that could cause it. There are of course different types… View Post

    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
