My Mental Health: February Reflection

It’s that time of the month – the end of the month, where I like to take a moment to reflect on how I’ve been doing in terms of my mental health. I’m not gonna lie, I just re-read my January Reflection and I’m almost nervy to write this one – it’s not that Feb has been a terrible…

Let’s Hear it For Women!

‘Girls Compete, Women Empower’ I came across this quote just a week or so ago & it really resonated with me. Not just because I’m all about trying to build my fellow woman up, but also because it’s sometimes all too obvious that there are so many of us putting ourselves or each other down….

Girly Weekend & Doughnuts Galore!

As I’m writing this, I’m listening to ‘S Club Party’ by S Club 7 – it seems only right as I just spent the weekend with my BFF who is absolutely my partner in crime when it comes to banging out the cheesiest throwback tunes, from Blue to Vengaboys to Steps – we’ve sang, we’ve bopped,…

Hello my little love bugs! So! I reached 200 followers on here this week. That’s 200 of you that read the babbling that I publish! Thank you. With that in mind, I felt like it’d be a nice time to share a few facts about me – I realised that although I’ve spoken quite a bit about…

A Very Happy Un-Valentine’s Day!

  If you’ve seen/read Alice in Wonderland (all time faveee) you might grasp what I’m doing there with the ‘un-valentines’ bit?!

Stop Body Shaming (& all hail Lady Gaga!)

Body shaming. To me, it’s bizarre. Whether it’s body shaming ourselves and being forever critical of how we look; or the media constantly cooking up images of the ‘perfect body’ and shoving weight loss tips in our faces, or slogans that offer ‘immediate’ results for your ‘imperfections’, or someone just being plain old mean. Well, I’m sorry, whoever…

Recipe: Mary Berry’s Banana Loaf

Oo this is new! A recipe on the blog?! Chef Katie, at your service. Ok, I’m not gonna lie, it’s all Mary Berry (all hail) – well the recipe is anyway, but I did make this just last week and OMG, it was glorious. I figured it’d be too good not to share with you, and if…

My January Favourites

Well, toodles January. You were a lengthy ol’ month and tbh, we don’t normally get on do we? However, I loved last month, and I feel like these are some of my favourite-favourites yet! I’m all about bargains, and this month has been especially good for those *happy dances like a penguin* Shall we? Original Source Cherry and Almond…
