REVIEW / M&S AUTUMN WINTER FOOD

My husband and I often say that we will know when we’ve really made it in life, when we can afford to do our weekly food shop at M&S. It’s said slightly in jest, but it does go to show how much we adore M&S food. (And I know we’re not alone.)

EASY PEASY SAUSAGE PASTA WITH BARILLA

AS soon as Elsie gets home from school, she wants to eat. And eat lots! She’s always super hungry after a hard day in reception and so I try to be pretty organised with what I’m cooking for her tea that night. But it’s not easy is it?! Sometimes we don’t have stuff in the cupboards because it’s near our weekly food shop time. Other times she doesn’t fancy something

DINING IN WITH EVERDINE

WE all know how it is. You’ve had a long day. The kids are playing up. The fridge is empty and you’re wondering what on earth you and you partner are gonna have for tea that evening, especially as you just can’t be bothered cooking. At times like this, it’s usually one of three options.

DRINKING TEA WITH TEAMI

TEA, tea. Glorious tea. Besides wine (and perhaps a cosmopolitan) it is my absolute favourite drink. You can keep your coffee and your cappuccinos, just give me a decent cuppa of any kind and I’m a very happy chappy.

LUXURIOUS PAMPERING & #SMALLCHANGES WITH OPTIWELL

I’M not a believer in diets or radical changes. There’s too much pressure and too much room to fail and feel bad about yourself, I think. But I am a believer in making little changes, #smallchanges that are doable and can and will make an impact!

A LITTLE TASTE OF MALTA (HERE AT HOME)

ONE of my favourite things to do… When I visit a different country or a far flung land, is to eat. Lots. To eat all the local delicacies, to feast on new dishes, to try out new tasty morsels. Yes folks, I am a foodie. And a rather adventurous one too. So when I was kindly sent a food hamper full of treats as part of Expedia’s World On A Plate
