Soul Food

  I was going to begin this post with “I’ve had a crazy few weeks”, then I thought for a moment, took a sip of my tea followed by a slice of reality, (I’m off cake) and decided, “I have a busy life”, would probably be more appropriate. Having a full on job as a […]

Seasons of Change

Although we’ve not had a great Summer, I still can’t believe how quickly the seasons have changed. I’ve gone from baking on a beach in France to finding myself practically on top of the heater in work and all in the space of one week! It really does feel like we’ve gone straight into Winter […]

A Break is as Good as a Rest

I started Monday on a very relaxed note thanks to a fabulous night away at Fota Island Resort in Cork. My boyfriend and I stayed in the resort (just a ten minute drive outside the city) on Saturday night and I really felt the benefit of being in such a beautiful and tranquil setting, even […]

Black, Gold & Goals

Like everyone, I think January can be a slightly depressing month. With the excitement of Christmas been and gone – along with a good chunk of your savings! – what exactly is there to look forward to? Well for a first, spending the majority of your work free time in complete darkness is an absolute […]
