Pancakes are a weekend essential in our flat. If we experiment with different breakfast options one day, we’re bound to have pancakes the next, whether they’re fluffy american style (recipe here) or crepes. Fluffy thick pancakes used to be my favourite. I never used to be a crepe fan. A big stack of thick, light pancakes topped with all manner of toppings, came above the thinner crepe style pancakes any day. But recently, I’ve really got into them. Just as quick and easy to make, with only a few store cupboard ingredients, they’re delicious served with all my fave pancake toppings and have become a regular breakfast option. Whether you enjoy your pancakes with bacon/sausage, or with fruit and yoghurt, these are bound to go down…

Instagram is dangerous. I can easily spend hours whiling away the time, scrolling through images, double tapping those I like the look of, and commenting on the images making me envious. It’s like a black hole. And once you start, it’s so hard to put down your phone. Sometimes I find it hard to even watch TV shows now without doing something else too, and Instagram is my go-to bit-on-the-side, followed shortly by writing for you guys on here. It’s just so addictive – and I get quite fidgetty if I’m not constantly on-the-go. I hate wasting days off! There are quite a few accounts who always give me food envy, or lifestyle envy, and I follow pretty closely, but here are my fave 15 foodie accounts…

I pitta the fool who thinks that Hummus isn’t good enough for dinner. I cannot tell you hummus I crave a warm pitta and a big bowl of the thick, creamy, chickpea dip we all love, even for dinner – Oh Hummus is my fave thing to be tucking into right now. So I obviously had to try out Hummus Bros, a Mediterranean restaurant and the first in the UK to serve hummus as a base for main courses. Kim and I popped along one evening to satisfy those cravings before an event. The laid-back Levantine eatery, has a clean and contemporary feel, with monochrome interior and a little splash of colour here and there. Offering a completely relaxed dining experience, Hummus Bros feels a little like an…

I love Ice Cream, and could easily sit there with a tub and a spoon, eating until I feel sick. It’s so moreish, and used to be my go-to film snack back in the day – Ben & Jerry’s Caramel Chew Chew was a constant addition to my freezer. These days I try not to buy too much ice cream, as I know how much it derails me from a balanced diet. I say balanced quite lightly here, as I try to be relatively healthy in the week, and exercise regularly, so that I can treat myself at weekends. I do love the odd burger! I’m always looking for dessert alternatives, as Alex loves a sweet treat to end the evening, and I usually just stick to my low…

Escape the city. Let’s face it, sometimes we really want to, or even need to. Just to grab a moment of serenity. Just for yourself to breathe, take 5 and think about the here and now. Not let any of the work stress or city anxieties, the daily to-do list or bills, get through. Just to relax. The city can be a little too much sometimes. Always on the go, constantly something to do or see. Working days are known to be longer in the big smoke too, and with everything on top, it can get a little much – and that’s perfectly normal. Escaping at lunch for a break (when possible) isnt really always escaping either, with everyone available at the end of a…
