I’m a big fan of the “night in“. In fact, I don’t do “nights out” because I don’t drink and clubbing isn’t my thing anymore. Oh and my anxiety would make it almost impossible for me to actually have fun, in a hot, sweaty club surrounded by drunk people with a bass drum pounding in my brain. So back to the point, nights in are good and I think we should all embrace the night in a little more and realise that they can be just as fun. Last year, I set up a home cinema one evening when my boyfriend came home from work. It had all the fixings and the making of a mini cinema just for 2! So here’s how to create your perfect home cinema evening if you fancy a cheap, cosy night in with a partner, friends or your mum!

Back in July (goodness me that seems like ages ago now, doesn’t it? Where has this year gone?) I wrote a “25 Autumn blog post ideas” post which went down really well and I really enjoyed writing and brainstorming for. Sooooo… Now we’re in arguably the prettiest and most magical season (Winter, for those who aren’t aware…) I thought I’d do a Winter / Christmas themed post of the same nature!
Whilst brain-storming blog post ideas for January the other day, I was reeling through all the genetic, “goals for 2017” type posts when I remembered that I wrote a “goals for 2016” post on 9th December 2015 – to be precise – I sat at my laptop and wrote down on my blog, for the world to see – okay maybe not the world – the things I wanted to try and achieve in 2016. To be honest I had completely forgot about all of them so chances of me completing them were pretty slim but I decided to go through them and talk about what I did and mostly didn’t manage to do…
Macmillan cancer support believes that no-one should face cancer alone. It is the most common disease that affected 352,197 people in the UK in 2013 alone. 1 in 2 people born after 1960 will be diagnosed with some form of cancer at some point in their lives. That’s either me or you, who’s reading this. Scary thought, huh? But extensive research is being carried out every single day to hopefully make those numbers and statistics a little bit less scary. We can always do our bit for cancer (for example, in 2014 I did a sponsored readathon and raised over £900 for Cancer Research UK!) and I promise, it doesn’t have to be anything terrifying like a sponsored bungee jump in order to matter!
Hi everyone! I haven’t had a new recipe post up in ages and truth be told, my boyfriend and I have tried a few new recipes but I wasn’t a huge fan of any them (sad face) so I didn’t want to share with you a recipe I didn’t like myself. A while ago, I wrote a post about Thai fish cakes that we’ve made numerous times since because they’re so damn good. We made them again the other day but tried our hand at a new starter. We didn’t really know how it’d turn out but you don’t know until you try, right?
