Work Flow: Upcoming Published Work

Recently, I’ve been doing a lot of freelance work keeping my brain busy and my Moleskine diary very full. I’ve also been constantly applying for jobs (when I say constantly, I mean like 10 a day) and begging for work experience. It seems like I’m in that awkward category of having both too much experience and…

Recipe Sharing: Traybaked Fish Curry

This recipe comes from Jamie Oliver; his Keralan Fish Curry was aired in the UK in late December last year on Jamie’s Festive Feast as an ideal NYE dinner party show stopper and it got me really excited to try it out on a smaller scale. Its bright colours and fresh ingredients changed my previous opinion…

Cooking With: The Green Turtle Club

All About This Island Life

Two weeks have just about passed since landing back into the Bahamas. Island life has taken a bit of adjusting, particularly when I’m in that very hungry, and intensely eager mentality to get myself into a city and be thoroughly employed. That’s not happening as yet, so I’m blessed to be in such a beautiful…

Nan’s ‘Best Ever’ Brownies

Hope 2014 has started off well for all of you. It may not start off at its healthiest by trying this recipe but you’ll be able to cling on to some post-Christmas indulgence which I personally am quite happy to do while the rain keeps bucketing down here in Wales! These are referred to as…

With Christmas Comes: Cake

Between graduating, Christmas and watching too much Master Chef, I’ve been putting a lot of time into the kitchen and trying out new (and old) recipes. What kicked it all off was when I made Nigella’s Chocolate Cloud Cake for a friend’s birthday. It was a recipe I’d been wanting to try for years but…

Mamma Mia!: Nan’s ‘Italian’ Crumble

As I can’t seem to shut up about, I recently visited Italy…but because I have memories of my Nan always having a tin of a biscotti to enjoy with her coffee, I thought the perfect birthday gift for her would be just that.  Could only laugh when she opened the tin to find they weren’t…

Bits of 2013 via VSCOcam

Here are a few shots I’ve taken with my iPhone. They’re from most recent locations, like being back home in Wales and range from days out with friends, family to food in Cornwall and the streets and sights of Rome & Venice. I usually dislike the quality of phones yet have so much fun getting…
