BREAKING THE SOLO BRUNCHING TABOO – 19 CAFE BAR – MANCHESTER

BREAKING THE SOLO BRUNCHING TABOO – 19 CAFE BAR – MANCHESTER

As I’ve got older there is something I’ve learnt to do more and more. That is to enjoy my company. A little bit of self-indulgence and giving myself some me time! I must admit it took a while. I remember I always used to find it odd when my dad would head to a restaurant and dine alone or go gigging solo! I’d always thought to myself – what a strange man not wanting to share those experiences with friends. However, now I get it! He adores music and seeing…

HOLY CHESUS VEGAN PIZZA IS GOOD – PUREZZA – CAMDEN *

HOLY CHESUS VEGAN PIZZA IS GOOD – PUREZZA – CAMDEN *

Veganism is thriving in popularity right now. Whether it be for ethical beliefs or dietary choices, there are more products becoming available on the market. Having family and friends that are veggies or vegan it’s great to see them having more options to choose from. Meaning they can wine and dine just as well as the rest of us. Although I admit to being meat-eater and loving it, I also am the first to admit that I think we live in a glutenous society and consume way more than necessary!…

GARLIC CASHEW CHICKEN

GARLIC CASHEW CHICKEN

As I’ve been trying to get healthier recently, I am forever seeking some quick, tasty, healthy meals to cook up once I get home. Forcing myself for a run in the morning before placement meaning I can get home, cook and actually relax in an evening. However I don’t want to use all that time I’ve freed up cooking. I love cooking but so love relaxing too. When I get Thai or Chinese I love having chicken with cashews, so thought I could probably make something pretty similar at home and…

THE AUTUMN EDIT #3 & #4

THE AUTUMN EDIT #3 & #4

As usual my diary has been jam-packed and I was feeling slightly run down last week so the weekly Autumn Edit will roll into two! In all honesty I never seem to stop having fun at the moment. Always something to do and always with amazing people who make me laugh and smile. Let’s see what happened hey! So, it was my cousin’s birthday a couple of weeks ago and I headed over to Manchester to celebrate with him. We were going to check out the funk and soul of…

However, for many people who have finally achieved their dream body or managed to overcome their health issues, there always seems to be something missing. The “what next” is where most people seem to stumble. Maybe they realised that getting fit didn’t actually make them happy, or perhaps after recovering…

REJUVENATING CHERRY CHOCOLATE BREAKFAST MUFFINS WITH ONE EARTH *

REJUVENATING CHERRY CHOCOLATE BREAKFAST MUFFINS WITH ONE EARTH *

As you all well know by now, I am not a breakfast person – I have to be awake for at least a few hours before I fill my belly! However, now I am back at uni and trying to work out before lectures, it’s crucial that I have my morning meal! Unfortunately, with time restraints, it’s not so easy to whip up smashed avo and scrambled eggs. Therefore, I have to get experimental with my breakfast, you know to make it interesting as well! So, I was thrilled to…

THE AUTUMN EDIT #2

THE AUTUMN EDIT #2

It’s been a crazy busy week or so, I am ambushed with uni work, sorting trips and arranging adventures and at the weekend, one of my oldest friends got married. I’m slowly settling into a routine but it’s not quick enough for me! I have loads of goals this month like getting fitter, getting more organised and completing my work and research. This can all start tomorrow, however, let’s see what’s been going on in my world shall we. After a nervous wait we finally got our beginning placements at…

A GUIDE TO THRIFTY LIVING WITH GIFFGAFF *

Do you know how to build your credit? No? Neither do I. Most millennials don’t know enough when it comes to saving and planning for their financial future!

To help people along GiffGaff have now created GiffGaff Gameplan. First they revolutionised the mobile industry and now they want to do the same with personal finance. We…
