Summer White Chocolate & Raspberry Cake

Hallelujah! My Raspberry Ruby Beauty’s have FINALLY produced some edible fruit for me this year. I have two potted plants and for the last two years they have produced 2 or 3 raspberries, or been eaten to death before the fruit arrived. This year they have been eaten to shreds, but managed to provide me…

Reviewing 2017

As everyone is jumping on the #bestnine2017 tag to post on their Instagram feed, and getting in the prosecco ready for their evening celebrations (definitely need to do this before Tesco closes…) I thought it would be good to do another little round up of my year in the garden. 2017 has been chocka block…

Know Your Onions

Apparently ‘know your onions’ is a well known phrase? I’ve never heard of it until now, but I enjoy it.  I’ve also never grown onions before, so a first for a few things in today’s post! Along with my onion sets, I tried my hand at garlic too. This was really exciting for me because…

Summer Love

I say summer love, but I’m having a real love-hate relationship with the garden at the moment. I’ve reached a super busy period of the year work-wise, so getting out in the garden is proving tricky. On top of that, I went off to GLASTONBURY festival (capitals needed) for a week and there happened to…

Cut ‘n Come Again

Summer days are coming! I love day dreaming about barbecues, pitchers of Pimms and bowls of healthy salads that are so close to becoming a daily reality. Work is well under way in my garden (and in my home with all my growing seedlings on the windowsill) in prep for some quality time out there…

What’s Growing On?

As it’s finally spring and the weather is mostly lovely at the moment, I thought I’d share my spring time progress with you all and let you know what’s growing on in my garden (love a good garden pun). There’s so many days when I’m working and wishing I was in the garden instead, not…

Plotting

Spring is in the air! It’s so lovely to see everyone’s mood boosted from the sunny weather and longer daylight hours we’ve started experiencing! I’ve had such a busy schedule since January hit and some projects have started to finish, so now I’ve finally got some down-time before it gets crazy again with my new projects. Therefore…

Newbies

This year has launched into full swing-  no messing around. I’m working hard on all things dance and feeling great though. The weather has been so cold but so many days have been sunny and fresh – perfect winter weather in my books. Therefore I’ve been craving a day when I’m not working and I can…

New Year Resolutions

2017! It’s come around quick and I can honestly say this is the first year I’m really motivated to achieve big things. Last year saw exciting changes such as moving in with my boyfriend, starting a new job and setting up amazing projects for my dance company. A few things I’m hoping to tick off…

Indoor Living | Pt 2

Happy New Year folks! Last year was a pretty decent one for me, with loads of changes, new experiences and chapters starting up! However, one chapter remaining open was my Indoor Living post, so here’s part 2 as promised. Hopefully you all have some pennies left over from Christmas, or have a few vouchers to…

App-tastic

As most people in their 20’s, I’m somewhat attached to my phone. The fact it’s an iPhone really doesn’t help – so many apps to play around with, from BBC News to Snapchat. The great thing is, so many people are inventing 100’s of apps a day, all catering to different people and needs. I…

Autumn Appetite

Have I mentioned how much I love Autumn? Seeing all the orange, yellow and fiery red leaves falling and covering the ground is the best. On top of that you have Halloween, Pumpkin Spiced Lattes from Starbucks and big jumpers to snuggle up in. It’s also the time of the year where you start to…
