  • GRAZE UNBOXING | WHAT’S IN MY FIRST BOX?

    WHAT’S IN MY FIRST GRAZE BOX? Good evening Little Ones! IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) took over the steering wheel longer than anticipated, but I’m in control once again! Speaking about IBS, I wanted to ensure that my diet was at it’s peak; I’ve cut out dairy, gluten and sugar, (as much necessary). In order to gain control I decided to invest my time and money into Graze, (and no this isn’t sponsored). On a weekly basis I’m going to be conducting a new series, which will entail, ‘what’s in my Graze box?’ If this isn’t your cup of tea I would highly suggest reading a completely different blog post, (check…

  • BAKING WITH AMY | TREACLE TART

    TREACLE TART Good evening Little Ones! Nothing ends the day better than some good-old-fashioned baking. I know what you are thinking, another recipe, profiteroles and now tarts? What on earth are you going to create next? I don’t know the answer to that question, but for now lets keep it simple and stick with treacle tart.

  • BAKING WITH AMY | PROFITEROLES

    CLASSICAL PROFITEROLES Good evening Little Ones! After several trials and tribulations with various recipes, I’ve decided to crack on with the ever-so-famous profiterole.

  • ADVICE | BODY DYSMORPHIA

    MY BODY DYSMORPHIA Good evening Little Ones, today’s blog post isn’t going to be the most positive, but it needs to be discussed none-the-less. Recently my mental health has been all over the place, for several years I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety. A new addition to the family is, body dysmorphia. I’ve never shared this negative aspect of my life, purely because every-time I’ve tired to open up about this particular topic, I get frustrating comments. Such as, “you’re stupid for thinking you are bigger than you are”, “get over it”, “I don’t know what you are talking about”. Those comments ringing in my ears made me run away…
