vietnamese spring rolls

So not everyone is a fan of vegetables, and in order to make sure we are getting them we either juice them or add a lot of other stuff to the vegetables so that they almost disguise the taste and flavour. Well no more. I now introduce to you, the Vietnamese spring rolls in which…

vegan flapjacks

This year I’ve tried to be a little different in the way I eat. I decided that I would become a vegan/vegetarian. Before everyone bashes me down, just don’t. Its one of those new years resolutions that i wanted to challenge myself for and see if there are health benefits to it and also sneakily…

galentines day

So Valnetine’s Day for me is just known as one of those days that singles out all the single people. Whether you’ve never had a boyfriend/girlfriend, recently broke up with them or just always find yourself watching “Valentine’s Day” alone in your bed with ice cream and some yum popcorn, this day is just not…

smoothie bowls

The new trend that makes fruit and vegetables look like a delight to eat. This hot new way of eat all your way into a healthy 2018 has been my favorite and I’ve definitely hopped on to this band wagon. Firstly i will just be posting my “smoothie bowl essentials” and then posting 3 of…

coconut toasted marshmallows

Yay! This is my first recipe ever posted and its about damn time! Saying that I’m a foodie and then not posting anything that i have made is rather sad. So with that being said i started off with trying to make some marshmallows. The inspiration really came from working the French patisserie, called Paul….

playing tourist in the north of portugal

Luckily for me, I was able to have a sneaky look at what the North of Portugal was like. Oddly enough it was very different. The people are still just as friendly but it’s so wonderfully green and natury and majestic that I was left in awe. I got to meet a little old Portuguese…

lets get lost in lagos

The title perfectly describes my adventures in the South of Portugal. From using shower gel as a body cream, basically falling in every little city I visited and getting hit on by all the golden oldies. I spent roughly 3 and a half weeks laughing till I couldn’t breathe with Keanu, Dino (Keanu’s brother), their…

fabb cafe & gelato

Is this another post about ice cream? Yes. But it does also include the yummy food that Sinead and I ate whilst here. Plus ice cream is always a good idea to eat and to talk about.   Fabb Cafe & Gelato is a cute little shop that opened on the oh so lovely and…

crumbs & cream

As you can tell by now, being obsessed with ice cream is a clear understatement when it comes to describing my love of ice cream, this is probably the 3rd or 4th post or reference to ice cream I have made whilst writing all my blog post. With ice cream sandwiches being a really big…

treat yo’self

Sometimes being an adult can be overwhelmingly confusing and stressful. You have to make your own appointments, email your lecturers and drive yourself up the world with other factors in life. I’ve been feeling really down lately and have been crying a lot. It’s obviously been shown in my lack of blog-posting that something about…

seattle part 2

After spending almost a month now living like the locals, I decided to dedicate my day to being an absolute tourist. Visiting the amazing sites of the Space Needle, Glass Museum, Pikes Place Market (again), Gum Wall and literally just walked around to my heart’s content and absorbing things around me. We started the day nice…

ice cream sunday – trump that ’16

So 2016 has had a few surprises and the biggest one of them being that Donald J Trump became president of the United States of America – yes we have gone from Barack Obama to a sexist, racist, homophobic orange man. The only positives that I can think of , of him becoming president is…
