Protein Millionaires Bars – a Review

In my spare time, I have been crafting more treats and have been inspired by some recipes on the Missfits protein powder site, notably the imitations of millionaire shortbread, that delectable and moreish treat of layers of shortbread, caramel and chocolate. It's a treat that I love but that I cannot have, thanks to its … Continue reading Protein Millionaires Bars – a Review

Word of the Week: pulchritudinous

It's not as if I don't come across new words all that often; I like to think I read enough variety that I should be coming across new words on a frequent basis, but more often than not, the beautiful words I come across are those of which I already have a knowledge. Or vice … Continue reading Word of the Week: pulchritudinous

My Experience At Being Self-Employed

In the past, when I thought of being self-employed as a career, I had something different in my head to the reality. Not for the purpose of naivety. I just didn't have an idea, just like every child has a different idea. But it wasn't something tangible – I didn't have a set idea of … Continue reading My Experience At Being Self-Employed

A Case Of Mutual Resignation

It's Boxing Day 2018 and I have just come home from my third interview of the week. As I wrap up warm on the sofa, my phone rings. It's the internal hiring manager from the third of the interviews.

Completely gluten free and I'm sure you could make them vegan by replacing the egg with ground flax and water. (I am in no way … Continue reading Have You Made Banana Pancakes?

A Little Bit of Alice

Sorry I've not been around much! I've not got much of an update as the case. Life is life, and mine is hardly interesting. Instead, I'd prefer to introduce you to one of my favourite musicians: Alice's Night Circus. Taking her inspiration from Victorian aesthetic and Alice in Wonderland as well as costuming and film, … Continue reading A Little Bit of Alice

Made it Through the Dark

To think that it was only a couple of weeks ago that I posted another photo from this same location on Acomb's Hobmoor in near-darkness. I've been walking this same route once a week for the past seven months and it hit me this week: I remember when I walked this in the heat of … Continue reading Made it Through the Dark

Three Different Hotels, Three Different Adventures

I wanted to go over the trip we recently had where we experienced three different hotel stays, both in the UK and in the sunny glorious South of France. (This was a while ago now, but I've been busy as we well know.) I really ought to turn this into a travel blog, the amount … Continue reading Three Different Hotels, Three Different Adventures
