I recently wrote about the reality of breaking-up - the chore of untagging yourself from endless holiday photos and figuring out who should get custody of the pug-patterned oven gloves (me) and the toaster (also me). But once the initial crappery of the situation has passed, the time comes to face the world again and… Continue reading I Do … (want dessert)
Girls Think I'm Funny Has anyone else noticed that their social media feeds and TV channels are clogged up with people telling us to do more with food than just eat it? While I'm busy ordering Deliveroo to cure my hangover, foodies galore are telling me how to cook the perfect asparagus brunch and then… Continue reading Ready, Steady, wait until the smoke alarm goes off and you know it’s cooked
There comes a point in your adulthood where you feel the urge to reign in your drinking habits. For me, this is currently spurred on by the trend in vegan brunches, yoga classes and 'look after yourself' memes #blessed.

For example, that time I made chocolate… Continue reading RIP Fridge

Apparently, in an era of quinoa cravings and avocado addictions, there's never been a better time to embrace the fun of a health food fad (that's dairy and gluten free fun, obviously). But behind… Continue reading Deliciously ‘sh*t I read the recipe wrong’
