Food // Sausage & Spinach Pasta Bake

Everyone loves a pasta bake – stodgy, carb-heavy yet so, so yummy. This week is one of those ‘using up the contents of the cupboards’ weeks so what could I rustle up with 1 leek, 1 courgette, 1 jar of tomato & bacon pasta sauce and a pack of sausages? Obvs I went with a…

Food // Butternut Squash, Spinach & Feta Lasagne

I’m trying to incorporate more veggie-based recipes into our diet and this weekend I gave this lasagne recipe a go – but added my own twist onto it! I love lasagne but never really attempted to make my own till recently. Spinach is now a staple in my fridge and I wanted to try cooking…

Life // My Social Media Detox

I’m obsessed with my phone. There, I said it. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, BlogLovin – you name it, I’m refreshing it. I commute around 3 hours a day to and from work and I either stare out of the window or refresh my phone during my journey. In the evening, once I’ve caught up with my…

Food // Leaf, Bold Street, Liverpool

On Good Friday the sun was shining and it was the perfect excuse to head into town with my Mum to browse the Easter sales and go for lunch. I’ve heard lots of great things about Leaf but never actually been. Locates half way up Bold Street, it’s neatly tucked away in between lots of…

Life // Weekend Treats

New lipstick, Glamour magazine, updating my diary sat in the sun on a lovely Saturday morning drinking fruit tea.    This was me yesterday morning. It was a beautiful day with a basic to-do list: sweep, do the ironing, relax. Those are my favourite kinda weekends. Yes it’s great to be busy and have a…

Food // Chilli & Sweet Potato Chips

Chilli is one of my go-to meals. I just love cooking a big batch up filled with loads of veggies and mince meat.  It’s one of those one pot dishes that’s so simple to do and requires little effort – bar the chopping of veggies and the washing up afterwards!  It’s great to make at…

Food // Peppers, Celery and Bacon Pasta 

I try and cook fresh homemade meals as many nights of the week as I can. But sometimes, as the fridge starts to empty out, you need to get inventive with your lack of ingredients. And that’s how this dish came to life!  I discovered one red pepper, a stick of celery, 4 rashers of…

Life // The Sunday Edit

   This week I finally reclaimed my social life after weeks of spending time at home.  Friday night I chucked together the leftover veggies I had in my fridge with some chicken and ended up making the most delicious enchalladas. Winner! Yesterday was date night and what a day it was! We started with a…

Food // Avocado & Feta Toast

A simplistic brunch just made for the weekends. I’m a fully signed up member of the avocado club. Combine that with freshly toasted bread, crumbly feta cheese and a handful of ripe cherry toms and you’ve got a recipe for success.  It’s my weekend go-to when I’m relaxing at home cos it’s just so easy…

Interiors // Creating Our Perfect Kitchen

I first blogged about moving home back in December shortly after we’d moved in and when blogging took a backseat. But, now we’re nearing the end of January (the worst month for many) and the boxes are unpacked, I thought I’d blog more about our lovely 3 bed detached. As we’ve moved into a rental,…

Food // Date Night Cookbook

I’ve made no secret of my love for cookery books on this blog. From staring in my very own recipe book here to buying and reading new ones from cover to cover, I just love discovering new recipes to try. So, when the lovely Rebecca got in touch about her new book, the Date Night…

Home // Candles of the Month

As we progress through the first month of 2016, I’ve put all the Christmassy scented candles away and started to reintroduce fruity scents into our home. This strawberry Yankee Candle was a housewarming gift from my best friend when we moved into our house last month. We’ve had it burning away most evenings as the…

Life // Personal Health Update 

So I’m currently on my second stint in hospital. A chest infection and sore throat quickly escalated into quinsy (I know, what’s that?!), a rare form of tonsilitis and now an abscess. Lovely start to 2016 hey? It all began last Monday with the pain growing rapidly. I can’t complain about the hospital staff as…
