• Christmas Tree Brownie Baking – BLOGMAS DAY 8

    Hello everyone! As you can tell from the title I took on some Christmas baking. I got a recipe from Sainsburys here after looking on my trusty Pinterest. Usually I’m a decent baker, the same applies here but my opinion on the finished product may be slightly different…  Ingredients 150g cook’s Belgian dark chocolate (76% cocoa solids), roughly chopped 150g unsalted butter 3 large eggs 125g caster sugar 1 tsp vanilla extract zest and juice of 1 clementine (I USED A SATSUMA, CAUSE THEY’RE JUST THE FUCKING SAME TO BE HONEST) 3 tbsp port (I USED RED WINE AS AN ALTERNATIVE)  ¼ tsp ground cinnamon a good pinch of ground cloves…

  • My Tattoos

    Hey everyone!  I did a little poll on Twitter to see what post you’d like to see next and you wanted a post on my tattoos. I have a few and actually rediscovered a post I did back in 2014 on my first two little tattoos – I totally forgot I did that post! Well since then I’ve had five new tattoos and I thought I’d talk through them and why I got them and why I love them all individually so much, let’s go…  Watercolour Heart So, this is my little water colour heart on my inner right arm. I actually got this tattoo with my mum, we got a…

  • A Fresh Start.

    Hi everyone! As you may have gathered from the previous post, times have been a little tough lately. But here I am, ready to let the last few months go and start a fresh with life. I realised my worth, again as I say was in the last post  – I’ve been so much more happier recently than I was in a very long time. This proved to me that maybe I wasn’t happy for a much longer time than I realised and God I’m glad I’m where I am now. They say everything happens for a reason and I’ve never believed it until now. I’m quite happy with the result…

  • Rome 2016!

    Hello everyone!  It’s been almost 2 months since myself and Ryan went away to Rome, we go to Dublin next week so it felt right to FINALLY do a post about it!  It was incredible, one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been with the absolute love of my life. It was just perfect. The weather was sweet, maybe even too hot. The food was bloody incredible oh my god, don’t, I am still mourning the loss of the Italian pizza when I eat a disappointing pizza from England. Sigh, forever in my heart. The landmarks were just insane, honestly the whole place just blew my mind. I don’t…

  • Positive Tuesdays, they’re back!

    Oh my god HI. I’m bringing back Positive Tuesdays, if you were about in my Uni days you’ll know all about these. Have a look here, there’s loads! I enjoyed doing this, let me fill you in on the dealio with these. Every Tuesday I will look back on the week I’ve had and pick out all the good things, it’s a day of positive reflection. A moment to focus on the good and forget any of the bad and document it to look back on when I need to! I loved doing it back when I was struggling at university. It did help, it helped slightly then however I…

  • Homeware Haul Part 1!

    Hello everyone, I’m on a roll! So this shall be my first of a few homeware hauls, we haven’t got everything in the house yet  – I’m currently sitting on a pile of blankets and cushions while we wait for the sofas. Sleeping on a mattress on the floor while watching the telling which is also on the floor, I think it’s kinda cute though. In years to come me and Ry can be like “so we spent weeks on the floor… WEEKS.”  I’m not too good at this whole living away from home thing just yet, I know I lived in London for a year but I spent most…

  • Blogmas: Day Nineteen!

    Hello everyone! I had a very productive day today, the creative juices were flowing (that sounds SO wrong and horrible, I take it back) I woke up and put on my Christmas jumper, although I didn’t wash my hair because hello, I will wash my hair for no man. Actually, there was no man, I didn’t even leave the house today. Dinosaur socks are obvz well Christmassy  I finished my wrapping today, my parcels look like actual parcels I felt like I was working in that post office in The Grinch, not blowing my own trumpet here but they look good!  Wowweee, ooo la la  After chilling with my mum…
