To the man on the train…

Would you believe me if I told you that I only went to university because a man on a train told me to? Well, you better start believing it, because it’s true. I wouldn’t listen to anyone. My parents, my boyfriend, my work colleagues, my friends, their suggestions all fell on deaf ears. I’d spent my whole life in the…

Coconut Lane – Note Pad Reviews + 20% OFF!

I’ve been a Coconut Lane fan for quite some time now, their absolutely gorgeous colour schemes and prints always catch my eye and there’s no surprise that I made a little purchase. Having recently started a new job I, of course, needed to buy some new notepads, because list making is the key to my organisation! My basket did originally contain…

The Polish Bakery – Gluten Free Range

If you’re gluten free then you know the struggle to find a decent gluten free bread. We’ve all had the ‘hard as a rock’ variety, the ‘turns to dust’ variety and the ‘soggy bottom is an understatement’ variety.

Some might call it a very stupid idea, and I have to admit at times I’ve thought that myself. But…

Ordinarily, I’d schedule this blog post in a week or so time however with the Food…

The Budget Series – Sweet Potato Chilli

Welcome to a whole new blog series! Eating on a budget. As it happens I’ve taken a huge leap of faith and have just agreed a 12 month let on a property in London, started an internship and left my student days behind me. This is all such exciting news, but with no more student loan, and the bank of…

See a penny pick it up…

Today was the first day of my internship. An internship that I so hope will turn into my career. I awoke with butterflies in my stomach, so eager to make a good impression and fearful that I wouldn’t live up to all that my employers had hoped for. As I set out across Tufnell Park for the bus stop I…
