What are you Baking this Christmas?

Like it or not, Christmas is just around the corner. Christmas stock is already starting to pop up in some stores and I’m just waiting to hear that first Christmas carol (although as I’m writing this I am watching Holiday Home Makeover with Mr Christmas on Netflix which was my inspiration for this post). As…

A Disco Party

Last night I went to a disco themed party and you know what that means – dressing up. A dress up party, depending on the theme, often involves having to purchase an item of clothing or an accessory in order to fit in with said theme, because let’s be honest and say that a lot…

Recipes with Long Ingredient Lists

I don’t know if I’m just being lazy, feeling overwhelmed or if it’s the minimalism in me, but I always tend the shy away from recipes that seem to have a list of ingredients as long as my arm. I’m constantly looking for new recipe ideas (usually one pot wonders) or anything that’s quick and…

I Bought a New Phone, at a Bargain but Over my Budget

That’s right, I bought myself a new iphone. I’ve had my current iphone for the last six years, which I think is actually pretty good going. I don’t like to replace things before I really have to, not only to reduce clutter but also to save money. My current iphone 6 no longer updates, meaning…

Eggspiration

Sometimes I find inspiration for these posts in the most unusual places. My breakfast this morning, for instance was an inspiration. Who would have thought. I tend to try and cook most of my own meals to save a dollar or two wherever I can but one of the downfalls of this is the time…

Pantry Clear Out

Last weekend, we cleared out the pantry. When I say cleared out, I mean everything was removed before anything was considered to make the cut and make it back on the shelf. Things had got to the point where you couldn’t find anything let alone find space to put anything new in. It was most…

Flightpath

Since COVID-19, it’s become apparent that many of us have taken day to day experiences for granted. Being able to catch up with friends, go out for a meal or even just leaving the house is a treat for many people around the world. I must admit, compared to many people, I personally have been…
