As bloggers, sometimes we have to juggle blogging with work, university, school and life in general. It can get a bit too much sometimes (ahem... hence the lack of posts recently!) These are my tips to maintain a routine and keep on top of things!

Feeling Foodie!

Now I'm home, I want to get in the kitchen!

I'm not a massive fan of cooking (more so baking...) in the kitchen in my shared student house. It never feels completely clean and I just don't feel inspired to taste new flavours and try new things in there. So whilst I'm at home I'm going to make the most of it!

These are the recipes I've been eyeing up recently... (aka. everything from the 'recipe' section on 'The Londoner'... But I've retrained myself slightly for this blog post!)

s a v o u r y 
I do not own any of these images. All belong to links for recipes below.

 I'm a bit hummus obsessed, so I cant wait to try out Anna's homemade hummus recipe. 

I have made this before, but Jamie Oliver's Sexiest Salad In The World is a flavour combination to die for. Definitely going to make it again.

{Easy One Pan} Tricolore Italian Meatballs for when mumma asks me to whip up dinner.

I do not own any of these images. All belong to links for recipes below.


Banana Bread, I've been having cravings for it recently so I need to fulfil those.


A batch of chocolate avocado brownies. An all time favourite of mine. The previous link is to the recipe I use, I got it from The Londoner.

THOSE chocolate cookies - These are seeeeriously naughty. I'm a big fan, much like Zoe, Tanya and Anna... and probably anyone else who has ever had the chance to try them!

This Coconut Date Shake on Not Without Salt is definitely one I want to try making whilst I'm home too.

Deliciously Ella's Sweet Potato Brownies look uhh-mazing.


Hmm, I could be gaining a few pounds this easter... Looks like I'll have to share!

What have you been up to in the kitchen recently?

Happy & Healthy {three}

The suns been rearing it's lazy old head recently. I couldn't be happier to see it. It's got me motivated! Summer bod, here I comeeeeee!!

(All you'll need for these to die for brownies!)


Music To Motivate - Style - Taylor Swift. I've become a bit obsessed with her last three singles, they get me through 10 minutes on the killer step machine in the gym! ;) I'm going to buy her album - on repeat that should get me through a pretty intense workout.

Inspiration Time - Have you guys seen Charlotte Crosby's incredible transformation?! She's put a hell of a lot of effort into her figure and it's 100% paid off. She's got an absolute killer body, she looks fantastic! I've just ordered her '3 Minute Belly Blitz' DVD off amazon, I'll keep you updated on it.

Feeling Peckish?  - I have a super, super sweet tooth. When it comes to trying to be healthy, that can be a little bit of an issue. One of my favourite sweet treats is Chocolate Avocado Brownies. I've blogged the recipe here and there'll be a video up soon! They're still a treat, so I won't go eating a whole batch (...in one go at least!) but they're great for when I need to satisfy a sugar craving!

What To Wear - Have you seen my recently Wish/Want/Need Fitness Edition? The current workout must haves that I'm lusting after!

I Go To The Gym?! - I never, ever thought I'd be someone who headed to the gym a few times a week, but it turns out I am. It's always a little bit of a drag to go, but once I'm there, I love it. Afterwards, I feel amazing and a lot happier!

How are you keeping yourself happy and healthy?

Susie Watson Designs

On a sunny morning, there's nothing better than a soft, flakey pastry, fresh flowers and a hot cup of tea, right? 

I picked this gorgeous large mug* from Susie Watson Designs which suitably fills my need for a flower pot of tea in the morning!



Handmade, painted and filled with love and care in Sri Lanka, this gorgeous mug comes in a few different designs, this one is the 'Large Oscar Mug'. It's £18, although it's slightly pricey, if you're looking to build up a pretty collection and willing to spend a little, Susie Watson Designs has got plenty of lovely ones to choose from. Perfect if you're a mug hoarder, like me! (I may hoard, but they have to be of the finest quality, of course!) 

I really like the different shape of the mug, it's stands out and is unusual, It's like a supersize teacup! The gorgeous duck egg blue, green and rosy pink are painted beautiful with not a line out of place. 

I think it would be great as a gift for a friend or family member, in fact anything from their website would be.







Susie Watson Designs have some absolutely beautiful items on their website, I'm feeling like I might have to start up a little collection... 

Check it out for yourself here.

Wish/Want/Need 005 {fitness edition}

So I've been totally M.I.A recently, I'm sorry! Life's been pretty hectic and university work has just built up a little. I'm off for easter in two weeks, so I shall spend my time blogging and hopefully basking in spring sunshine! 

With a little time to spare, I thought I'd share my latest fitness wants! I'm really into going to the gym at the moment so I want a little gym-drobe update. These things have really caught my eye! In the words of my darling boyfriend 'You're working out, it's not a fashion show'... True, buuuuut who doesn't want to feel good whilst they work out? Certainly not me, so out with boring, simple greys and blacks, in with some neons and pops of colour! 


Lorna Jane Phone Holder  from Active In Style - I'm always unsure of where to put my phone when I work out. If I put it on the gym machines I worried I'll yank the headphones, it'll fall on the floor and smash the screen into a million pieces and and iPhone six is a liiiitle to big to go down the bra! This may be my solution!

Nike Pro Classic Gym Bra in Neon Yellow from ASOS - I love having a flash of neon in a workout outfit. I think this is down to associating working out with summer and neons with summer - you know, summer body and all that. Workout clothes can be quite plain so I like to shake things up a bit with a splash of colour!

Yoga Tights from H&M - I absolutely love H&M sportswear, it's comfy, affordable and looks great. I have a very similar pair of trousers to these but they're wide leg, so I'd really like to have a pair like this too! 

Active Cross Back Sports Bra in Mint from Missguided - Just. Look. At. It. It's so pretty! I love the detailing on the back and the colour is gorgeous. 

Believe, Achieve Sports Vest in White from New Look - I like to wear a longer, slightly baggy over the top of a sports bra so this one is perfect. I love the little motivational words on it too... always helps! 

Whats your workout wardrobe missing at the moment?

Emma Bridgewater Espresso Cup Candles

I thought I'd write a post to the two little beauties that are currently gracing my desk. These gorgeous Emma Bridgewater Espresso Cup Candles!

They're very cute, look lovely and smell delightful too! I love having candles lit every evening, something about the flicker of a flame just makes me feel relaxed and calm before a long sleep. 




For someone who is a liiittle mug obsessed, these are perfect. They were actually given to me as a gift - which is something I think they're perfect for! Also, once they've burnt down, you could pop a tea light of small candle in there!


I've seen lots of different designs of these, so if these ones don't take your fancy have a look around. I love these 'Toast & Marmalade' ones on Amazon.
