It’s been a while since I’ve spoken about my anxiety online. I wrote an entire Blog series way back when, documenting my time going through CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) which was really good for me at first but, in the interest of being open, everything I had been feeling soon returned to me ten fold…… Continue reading Anxiety: My Fear of Future Losses.
It’s all getting very exciting! Only one week until the big day, trees are going up and the cupboards are slowly stocking up with food. Plans are hopefully coming together and Christmas shopping is on its way to being completed, finally! Unfortunately, though, Christmas (and any big celebration, really) tends to be a time of…… Continue reading Save Waste This Christmas
As I wrote in my recent Blog, I’ve been getting recipe boxes delivered from Hello Fresh for a while now on and off . Although it is predominantly a subscription service, you can easily skip the weeks ahead – which is what I do. Alternatively, you can opt in to get them monthly or weekly but…… Continue reading Hello Fresh 2.0
This Summer I had the absolute pleasure of a week away with my family to a beautiful, luxury resort in Tenerifé and I really made the most of it! It’s an adults only resort and I’d imagine it caters mostly towards romantic breaks but it’s also perfect for families with adult children – like ours!…… Continue reading Tenerifé: Iberostar Grand Salomé
If you follow my Instagram you’ll see that my life often revolves around where I am eating that day and that pull only gets stronger when I’m away from home.

It’s super easy, not at all time consuming and completely vegan. Plus, most of the ingredients in the…… Continue reading Food: Easy Vegan Chilli Recipe
When Alice invited me to join some of the Southampton Bloggers crew for a cocktail evening at Cabana Brasil in Southampton, including three courses of food, I wasn’t 100% sure it was suitable for me. As a vegetarian who eats a heavily plant-based diet, I usually try and go to restaurants that have lots of…… Continue reading Food: Cocktails at Cabana Brasil
Last Sunday I was invited to join the Southampton Bloggers gang at a cider tasting and food review event at The Stable in Southampton. Not only did I think this would be a fab chance to meet everyone and throw myself in at the deep end but the promise of pizza was just too much…… Continue reading Food: Cider Tasting at The Stable
Being self-employed is really hard. You might get to ‘be your own boss’ but only sort of, you still have clients and people you work for just instead of one ‘boss’ to impress, you have an indefinite amount. You may even get to set your own schedule but then, maybe not, as you need to…… Continue reading Being Self-Employed is Hard.
Perfectionism was something I always felt was used as a humble brag. In school, when they advised us for job interview techniques and that we’d likely be asked our negative traits, I was always told to turn that into a positive by saying ‘the only bad thing about me is that I’m a perfectionist’ and that…… Continue reading The Plight of The Perfectionist
