Batch Cooking Benefits & Recipes

As I write this post I have a large pot of garlic and basil Marinara sauce simmering away in the kitchen. Since popping along to a batch cooking course at the Waitrose Cookery school I am a meal prep convert. I cook every night and when I'm working from home I also cook myself lunch, that's a lot of time spent by the oven. I wanted to find a way to reduce my time cooking but not hinder the quality of my meals, good food is incredibly important to Simon and me.

Rose, Orange and Rosemary Cocktails

Although we don't celebrate Valentine's Day in a big way I'm really looking forward to our first one as a married couple. Simon and I rarely give each other romantic gifts but St Vals is a great opportunity to get all dressed up, go out to dinner and spend some quality time out of our usual routine. I think these cocktails would be just the thing to end the evening with, probably whilst we're sat on the sofa watching an animal documentary on the BBC!

How To Choose a Timeless Rug

Rugs are a hard thing to master, they can make or break a room so it's important to choose a style that suits your home perfectly. Rugs are one of those design elements that can completely tie an interior scheme together. I have recently realised just how important a good rug is after introducing two new ones into my own home. 

Weekend:IN - Dreamy Interiors & Creative Women

You may remember that last summer I was lucky enough to spend the best day in Somerset being introduced to lots of independent brands thanks to Olivia from WKND:in. As a blogger one of the most rewarding things is being able to get to know interesting and inspiring companies to shout about. That’s the main reason I started blogging, to share all the things I loved with the hopes of spreading the word about things that are important to me.

SS 2018 Habitat Collection

After visiting Top Drawer last weekend I'm feeling really inspired to share new ideas and trends that I've been spotting recently. When I received Habitat's SS18 press release I knew that I had to blog about their new collections. I'm so happy to see many of the interiors styles that I love so much being represented on the high street.
