Recipe | Cumin Chicken with giant couscous, courgette, peas & mint with Le Creuset

This time of year I crave fresh green vegetables and simple ingredients, cooked in a quick and easy way.  Leaving stodgy winter foods behind me, I’m after quick, nutritious meals that the whole family will enjoy. I am longing for wild garlic and spring greens.. there is nothing better than going for a walk in the woods and gathering a handful of wild garlic leaves to cook with.  Soon!  In fact I heard the season is particularly early, and there are

Simple Living | Streamlining the kitchen…

I’ve been so bloomin head down in work at the moment that my home has fast become a dumping ground of ‘stuff’.  Especially our kitchen.  Just dumped – never actually put away or given a home. Our teeny tiny kitchen has very little cupboards or work space.  A narrow ‘galley’ style kitchen which is open plan to the dining room, and can be seen as soon as you walk in through the front door.  Yes even the postman can see the

Simple Style | Spring footwear…

Spring is almost here!  I can hear a chorus of daffodils chiming in the sunlight!  Or maybe it’s just my joy, at finally being able to kick off my winter boots and slip my feet into something lighter.

Beauty | My skin care routine – updated…

It’s been a while since I’ve shared my daily skin care routine, so I thought I’d give a little update.  Considering it’s the depths of winter and lack of sunshine and central heating usually ravages my skin, leaving it dry and grey looking.  Surprisingly, this January my skin has been looking fantastic. So what have I been doing?  Well I regularly use vitamin c to brighten my skin and nourish it with oil.  So if you are interested in knowing

Beauty | Nail colours for Winter…

High Five Alert! You may remember my post earlier in the month, on my goals for 2018?  One of those goals was to stop biting my nails.  Well ta dah! I’ve only done it.  It’s been just three weeks and I’m super proud of myself. To mark two weeks of nail growth I had a manicure, to encourage me to continue my ‘non-biting’ journey.  Dark green OPI gel called ‘stay off the lawn‘.  I absolutely love the colour.  So cool.  What
