  • Links of London -A Gift Idea for Her

    My boyfriend is appalling at buying presents. I found this out relatively early into our relationship when he took me to buy my own Christmas presents a week before the big day, as it was just all too confusing for him (despite me having written a very specific list on his request).

    Parkin – Gluten and Dairy Free

    There are certain recipes that I read and think to myself “that would kill me”, such as macaroni cheese and butter shortbread. When my dad requested that we make parkin cake for our bonfire celebrations I had one of those moments.

Waking up one morning to a face full of spots and skin that couldn’t decide whether to flake off or become an oily mess meant that the days of bare faced goodness had gone. I have tried so many skincare brands from high street to high-end and always ended…

    The Great British Summer

    We’re pretty hard on Summer here in England and I thought it about time to put foreword the 10 reasons why I love it, just the way it is. SURPRISE – Our Summer never lets us get bored of all that hot weather, she’s always on hand to sprinkle some entertainment or blow our socks off when we least expect…

    Highgate Cemetery

    Otium, Otii –  At peace, leisure A little history:  The cemetery was initially established in 1839 by a private company as an answer to those seeking to bury their dead outside of church grounds and according to their own rites. To ensure that the upper classes were tempted away from the convenience of burying their loved ones at local churches the…
