Thank the merciful gods of cake, Bake Off is back! Since the entire nation was waiting in trepidation to find out whether or not their beloved Bake Off had been abominated,  I thought I’d do my very own round up of my thoughts on Cake Week…  I settled down on Tuesday evening fully prepared to despise the latest series of The Great British Bake Off. Like much of the nation, my loyalties rested firmly with Mel, Sue and the almighty Berry, all of whom I hope were having a mirthful viewing party over a freshly baked fougasse.     Plenty… View Post

Well, it has been far too long since I did one of these posts (I checked and it’s basically a month). I’ve missed you all, lovelies! I hope you’ve had a wonderful few weeks, there has been plenty going on here. I don’t know about you but I’m struggling to come to terms with the fact that, not only is it June, we’re actually fast approaching July (and my 29th birthday, ohmygod). Anyway, let’s deal with the task at hand and focus on this week; here’s what got me smiling. Don’t forget to share your stories with me in the… View Post

Despite feeling like you’re an adult who knows exactly what they want out of life, nothing compares to the absolute lack of surety you feel when you’re a teenager.

I’m not sure what’s going on at the moment but I feel as though the weeks are lasting forever. Not in a negative way, just in a way that means I’m ready for the weekend by around Wednesday. Probably my own fault for not getting enough sleep (does anyone else do that thing where they stay up late in a bid to hang on to every ounce of the day?) Anyway, it’s finally Friday which means it’s time for a weekly happiness round-up. Also, I LOVED how many of you joined in last week so please keep sharing your stories,… View Post

How can somebody who is so utterly in love with animals be content with eating them? That was the predicament I’d found myself mulling over for the last few months and the beginning of April saw me finally making the transition to vegetarian life. Honestly, I don’t know why I didn’t do it sooner! My meat intake was already pretty low and I absolutely love vegetarian food; I guess I was just too lazy to go through the upheaval of a life change. Anyway, I’ve now called myself a veggie in public and listed it as a dietary requirement on… View Post
