Tuck Inn, Dalston

Tuck Inn Caribbean food

There is a really nice little art shop in Dalston that happens to sell a brand of notepads/sketchpads that my friend wanted to take a look at up close and personal before purchasing them. On the 27th February we made that happen and battled the snow, went on the epically long overground to take a […]

First Thoughts On Hello Fresh

Light yellow creamy curry with fish, butternut squash and herbs sticking out of the top

The Sunday I had arranged for my box to get delivered I was ridiculously excited about it and was so happy when the text and email came through to let me know the hour slot that the driver was likely to arrive in. It resulted in a few quick messages between my friend and I, […]

Products I Want To Use Up In 2018 #3

Beauty and lifestyle empties for February 2018

After a fairly good start to my project pan, I feared that February was going to be a really slow month in terms of progress. As we went through the short month products just kept coming to an end, especially given using certain products increasingly became part of my routine. Product usage still is not […]

Backdating Blogs

In my last few posts, probably actually for the last few months, I have been hinting to how my mental health is not at 100% recently. Let us be real though and acknowledge that even when people look like they have it all together they are usually not mentally at 100% all of the time; […]

Starting Up Hello Fresh

Hello Fresh is something that I had seen around for a long time through adverts and social media but until recently I had not encountered anybody in person that actually used them. There are people on social media, including one of my favourite lifestyle/beauty YouTubers, that get sponsored to cook Hello Fresh on their channel […]

Food Youtubers I Love Right Now #1

My Instagram and YouTube subscriptions are a wide variety of food, lifestyle and beauty but I find myself getting sucked into the food hole a lot. My Instagram explore page is pretty much wholly food and my Youtube home page throws up videos from food channels from a number of years ago because I am […]

Molicero, Croydon

Tea and cake is pretty much always a winner in my books. It is even more of a winner when the cafe is a quiet place, the prices are decent, the portions are generous and the staff have a smile on their face. That in short is why I love Molicero a Portuguese cafe on […]

Night in the Woods

There are certain things that I tend to lean towards to escape from reality; cooking, reading, art and games are just a few of those things. Different amounts of effort are involved for each of them though and whether it is using your eyes to focus and read after a long day at work, having […]

Cosy Home Hot Chocolate

Cream and marshmallows melting

I love a hot chocolate. In the morning when I get to work, when I am out in a cafe or at home as a way to unwind after a long day. Cream and marshmallows are usually reserved for the ones that are made for me in a cafe but that seemed a little sad […]

Mini Benefit Cosmetics Haul

Beauty store booth haul

Recently I spotted that my trusty Bourjois Healthy Mix was actually a bit too orange on my skin and it really put me off applying foundation or any makeup at all. Was it always like that? Have I spent over a year walking around looking like I should be sitting on the shelf with the […]
