A PEEK AT MY WEEK NO. 5

•••
It has been so good to escape to Spain for a few days and disconnect from the world. This summer is going to be pretty crazy as I’m taking on a few new projects so I wanted to take a little time out to put everything on pause just for a while. I’m staying in the house where I grew up, not far from Marbella in southern Spain. There’s no wifi connection [...]

MATCHA WAFFLES AND KIWI ROSES

•••
Say hello green breakfast perfection! If you haven't got a Swedish waffle iron already, you should go out and get one now because these matcha waffles need to be in your belly ASAP. This recipe is a relatively healthy waffle recipe. It only uses egg whites and is entirely lactose free as it uses olive oil instead of butter or any other animal fat. Don'[...]

BREAKFAST SMOOTHIE JAR

•••
I'm trying to be a little more creative with my week-day breakfasts lately. Normally what happens is I wake up later than expected, think about just how much I have to get done in the day ahead of me, have a little freak out and just end up making a cup of tea and munching on a few biscuits. I then get hungry about an hour in and just am not as productive[...]

A PEEK AT MY WEEK NO. 4

•••
Lately life has been a little crazy but I'm really enjoying where things are going. That's not to say that I'm not still struggling with some of the consequences of working independently but I am definitely getting back to feeling more like myself which feels so good. Throughout university and over the last five-or-so years, I've felt confused about prett[...]

3 FAVOURITE TOAST TOPPINGS

Hello Saturday! Hello brunch! I'm a big breakfast person and love love love having more time to make a proper breakfast/brunch on the weekends. You all know I'm a big pancake person, but recently I've also really enjoyed preparing a mix of salty and sweet open sandwiches to munch on. And the prettier they are, the better. I love the idea of making a wh[...]

MY SKINCARE ROUTINE

•••
It's no secret that I'm no beauty junkie. I've been using the same face cream pretty much my whole life. However, the older I get, the more I learn about my body and my skin, about about what feels right and what doesn't. I don't have bad skin whatsoever but I realised that the cream I was using was way too oily for my complexion and that finding somethin[...]

A PEEK AT MY WEEK No. 3

The world of blogging is a confusing and bizarre but wonderful world. The first time I went to an official "blogger event" (about half a year ago), I remember walking through the door with my big but nervous smile and saying hi to the first person I came across. She looked me up and down, barely smiled and turned around without saying a word. Safe to say,[...]

HOW TO MAKE PERFECT PANCAKES

•••
I've never posted this recipe on my blog because I figured it was too simple but recently so many people have been asking me how to get perfect looking pancakes without a special pancake pan, without separating the egg whites, etc. and there are a few little things I have learnt along the way as I have made a TON of pancakes. Now excuse me while I geek ou[...]

MY FAVOURITE FLEA MARKET FINDS

I'm so excited to be teaming up with Tanya and Sarah from The Lausanne Guide today! For those of you in the region, I'm almost certain you're already a regular reader as it's by far the best guide to Lausanne you can find. I've been following TLG for ages - it's my go-to when I'm looking to discover a new restaurant and it keeps me up-to-date with what's goi[...]
