February goals

I really really enjoyed writing and working on my January goals last month. I found that setting myself small and realistic goals worked absolute wonders. No huge resolutions over here in 2018, no sir-ee! So I wanted to continue the momentum into February and start the month with my February goals list! Again, these are all fairy small and doable – you won’t find any “jump out of a plane” on here!

Cooking Up a Fuss With Lobster Homeware

Over the past year, I’ve ventured more and more into the kitchen to try new recipes and dishes and although I’m no Nigella, I would say that cooking is a big love of mine. I was contacted by the lovely Ashton and the guys at Lobster Homeware about potentially reviewing one of their gorgeous, newly launched aprons – all designed by a lady called Nathalie with inspiration that comes from her Dominican background and her closest loved ones. I absolutely loved that idea as I find cooking is quite a sentimental hobby and a great way to connect and feel close to your own loved ones.

Recipe: No-Bake White Chocolate Oreo Truffles

Now, I’m not known for being a particularly good baker. Baking and cooking are two very different things and I tend to get on better with throwing a bunch of ingredients into a slow cooker and whipping up a nice dinner rather than baking cakes but I saw a variation of this recipe on Facebook and as it’s a ‘no-bake’ recipe, I thought ‘ah what could go wrong?’ so I channelled my inner Paul Hollywood and I was pleasantly surprised with the result! I apologise for the lack of photos, as I didn’t realize I’d be doing a post but here’s the recipe to these gorgeous, easy to make little treats!

Christmas Gift Guide for Her

It’s that time of year again and although I may not be the biggest Christmas enthusiast in the world, there’s one thing I do love and that’s buying gifts for loved ones. Parting with your well earned money can be difficult but I just love searching for the perfect gift for someone – something a bit different and something a bit more personal than your average ‘smellies and sock’s. I came across Impossible to Buy For – a gift site with a whole range of gifts for him or her and a whole range of price options too. I’ve put together a gift guide for the ladies of unique gifts from Impossible to Buy For!

One-Line-a-Day-A-Five-Year-Memory-Book-05 Year Memory Diary – £9.59

Oh I absolutely love this book! The idea of the 5 Year Memory Diary is for you to document events, big or small, that have happened on that particular day and it allows you to look back over the last 5 years with ease and not only reminisce but see how far you’ve come in 5 short years! I think it would make a really nice gift, especially for friends who do a lot of stuff together anyway | Buy!

Perfect for: Book lovers or writers! Continue reading

Recipe: Coconut and Lime Cake

Hi guys! I’m back again with another recipe post but this time, we’re leaning towards the sweeter kind. I gotta admit, cakes aren’t my strong suit. Apart from the Betty Crocker kind which requires very little effort and skill but, if I do say so myself, this one went exceptionally well and tasted delicious so I’m sharing the recipe, which is very easy, with you below!
