This is one of my recipes that I probably make the most often. It came from me wanting to make stew one time, and then deciding on the ingredients that “felt” most “stew-like”. It’s probably fairly similar to goulash, although I haven’t actually looked up how to make goulash, so I haven’t checked. I do…

Our generation has an obsession with doing as much as possible, all the time. It’s like the more busy and stressed out you are, the more you’re “winning” at life. This coronavirus quarantine has got me thinking about the flaws with this way of thinking, why we should change it, and also how we can…

I Lived Like A 1950s Housewife For A Week

I’ve been wanting to try this out for the past couple years, and I figured lockdown during Covid-19 was the perfect time: taking the rough schedule of a 50s housewife and seeing what living that life is like. Of course, life would have been different for everyone in this era, but I wanted to try…

I used to be a Cool Girl

If you’re unfamiliar with the term “Cool Girl”, I can highly recommend watching this video before reading the rest of this post – it’s incredibly well done and explains the trope really well, with lots of examples.

Springtime Resolutions

I don’t do New Years’ Resolutions. Never have, probably never will. They’re almost doomed to fail; their die-hard nature, the miserable time of year, the fact that they often involve a period of restraint and not-very-fun following a period of parties and overeating and what is for many people the biggest night out of the…

Tips for a Traditional Christmas

I hate tacky, over-the-top Christmas decorations as much as the next person. I hate them with a passion. They seem to be everywhere, with many places adopting the “more is more” attitude. So I’ve made a list of everything I can think of that might help you avoid accidentally turning your home into this horror,…

I went to the most instagrammable cafes in London so that you don’t have to

Below is my review. The “wins” and the “fails”. Last year, I had a bit of an obsession with “instagrammable” cafes. That is to say, pink, flowery, cute – “Instagram-friendly”, essentially.
