Goodbye 2018 Project Pan

Goodbye 2018. Goodbye clutter. Out with the old and in with the new yadda yadda. Literally. The flat is filled with boxes. It’s time to face a new adventure and move into a bigger place. And with that I need to say goodbye to my small collection of empties that were sitting gathering dust. I’ve […]

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; […]

My Favourite Posts Of 2017

Menemen and Turkish breakfast on white table at Nick's Cafe Bromley

Slowly but surely I managed to get my blogging mojo back during 2017 and towards the end of the year I have managed to remain consistent with posting twice a week at the same time. Though sometimes I completed the post with only a minute to spare, it has been stressful at times but incredibly […]

A Life Update

With it being my birthday, and given a bit of a blogging absence, I figured it was time for a life update a year on from that failed series of goals posts.

Bacon Hash With Baked Egg

This is one of those recipes that came about through a mixture of my laziness to go to the shop to purchase more food until a delivery came and also my love of simple comforting food. Corned beef works perfectly okay with potatoes and all the fabulous ingredients that go into it so why would […]

My Goals For 2017

For me at least 2017 is the year of achievable goals and being able to feel proud at the end of them. Here are some things I’m planning to gove my all during the year ahead.

13 Stocking Fillers For Less Than £5

Every year people together Christmas gift guides and they are full of fantastic items and really useful tips but this year I have increasingly noticed people discussing “stocking fillers for under £15” or including a £25 gift in their stocking filler gift guide. I do not care how small something is in size if it […]

The Dock, Cardiff Bay

There is a lot of history in Cardiff and not just the obvious and visible things like the castle but also the bay has a lot of immigrant history that my historian partner was keen to tell me about as he suggested we walk down to the bay from the city centre. As always walking […]

Rustic Or Just Half-Hearted: Bianco43 Croydon Review

I recently brought the phrase “Helping people explore places with positivity” into my Twitter bio to explain not only my professional job but also for this blog. I love to write about things and give others the Lowedown (play on my surname klaxon) on where is worth going and where is not. Every time I […]

Month Three Updates On My August 2016 Aims

There was a point just after my last update post that I feared I had allowed optimism to creep in to life too soon but in the end everything worked out okay. Despite only getting paid for my first week of work in September I managed to make that money go all the way through […]
