Spicy Sweet Potato & Coconut Chickpea curry
Yes, before you say anything - the wooden table background is back . Natural light inside the house is tough in dark December, so I took the pan outside on a snowy Sunday morning and stood in the freezing cold to try and get a shot that made this curry look...

Why do I bullet journal and should you start?
Google 'how to bullet journal' and a whole host of hits come back at you, telling you why you should do it, the best ways to do and what you can get out of it. But what actually is it?! In its crudest form it's essentially a glorified to-do list (but anythi...

Friday night @ Australasia
PIC Friday was "date night" (can't express how much I cringe at that term), which was made significantly better as Australasia had invited me down to review their updated menu. Some people who read my blog (shout out to my dad) might remember when I was las...

This weird and wonderful concoction occurred earlier this week when James and I had come home from a long weekend away and there was " nothing in the cupboards"  (apart from 9782 tins of beans and tomatoes). I couldn't be bothered to go out so decided to ge...

Double 00 Pizza Chorlton
I never ever ever  exaggerate. Ok. I do. But, oh my gosh why haven't I written a post about this before now? Considering I've been going two years? Considering that Double 00 pizza is the best pizza I've ever had? See. No bold claim. Just pure, unadulterate...

#CubaDiaries - Part Two - Havana
Havana is absolutely incredible. Everything I read before I went didn't do it justice, and this probably won't, either, but here I go. Imagine if Barcelona was in the Caribbean, but a bomb had hit the city leaving some parts in ruins, with trees growing out...

#CubaDiaries: Travelling to Cuba - what you need to know
For those of you that don't know (which can't be many as I've literally not stopped talking about it... 🙄), James and I have recently come back from travelling round (some of) Cuba during April, and it was AMAZING. I say 'some of Cuba' as until we started ...
