Pinterest Perfect Wedding

Something that we knew was important to us was the photographer at the wedding. We are very, very lucky to have an amazing photographer as a friend (Sarah Debnam). Giving the photographer a lot to work with really helps. Now-a-days people want more interesting photographs and not just the standard group shots. The decor plays a huge part in this.

5 Ingredient Vegan Summer Breakfast Bowl

I have been on a plant-based ‘diet’ for around 3 months now, and one of my ultimate breakfast is only 5 ingredients and fills me up till lunch. I was aware of the fact it’s so easy to slip into a carb trap when you swap your diet around, so I have been actively avoiding carb heavy breakfasts and instead looking to get energy from fruit and nuts.   It’s sweet without needing to add any syrups or sugars, it’s crunchy thanks to the tasty Californian Walnuts and my chosen brand of oats.  Vegan Summer Breakfast Bowl Alpro Simply Plain (or other alternative yoghurt style product) Handful of Walnuts Whatever… Read More 5 Ingredient Vegan Summer Breakfast Bowl

Didn’t he have one of those last year?   As the years pass by and your man incrementally becomes the man who has everything, it’s increasingly difficult to find unique original gifts he’ll remember for years to come.

The Pressure to ‘Feel Good’

Recently I’ve been swimming a few concepts around in my head and usually the culmination of that time is mostly word vomit, surmounting to not a lot. I listen a lot to conversations when I am out and about, not intentionally but just in passing, or forgetting my headphones and sitting on the tram for 35 minutes. You hear a lot. Many mothers take the tram in groups of two or three. I also know a lot of mothers, and while I don’t talk a lot, I do listen when spoken to. I keep coming back to the same topic, the pressure to ‘feel good’, or as it were, the… Read More The Pressure to ‘Feel Good’
