Fluffy American-Style Pancakes Recipe


Fluffy American-Style Pancakes Recipe

It's pancake day, and it's saving me from my post-birthday blues. Going back to work yesterday after being completely spoilt for my birthday was so hard. So to keep the celebratory spirit alive I thought I'd share my recipe for fluffy American-style pancakes. As I've just been diagnosed as lactose intolerant, to keep my nut allergy company, these pancakes can be made using lactofree milk and butter and turn out delicious too.

The Four Year Plan & A Little Celebration

 The Four Year Plan & A Little Celebration

So in case I haven't mentioned it enough already, sorry; not sorry, yesterday was my 26th birthday.
Happy Birthday to me
Turning thirty is now just around the corner so I thought I'd post something reflective on The Four Year Plan - what I want to have achieved before 30.

Elderflower Fizz Cocktail

Elderflower Fizz Cocktail Recipe

So on Saturday I am officially turning 26 and just like last year I'm really not sure how to feel about it. I'm closer to 30 than 20 and it just sounds so much older than I would like to be. Inside I'm still the 10 year old Disney loving princess wannabe I once was who had a diet consisting of as much sugar as possible when the real adults weren't looking. Sixteen years on and to be honest my diet is still high sugar but it now involves naughty adult treats such as alcohol so I thought as a pre-birthday treat I would share with you a recipe for one of my favourite cocktails and reap the benefits of drinking them all in the good name of the blog.

Multi-masking: Why You Should Be Doing It



Hello Lovelies, I hope you're all having a good weekend. This morning is the first time all week that I have been able to have a lie in and think about myself a little before I embark on a day full of assignment writing. Yesterday was my gran's 90th birthday party which I threw and after all this rushing about my skin has been a little neglected so I'm excited for a sunday morning pamper.

Learning to Love Yourself this Valentines


The real difficulty is to overcome how you think about yourself

I'm the type of person that will give my all for the people I care about and put myself into second place. If you need a lift to the airport at 3am, I'm there. If you need a shoulder to cry on at the last minute, I'll be there. I guess with putting all the people and things I care most about in my life first I often forget about myself because I'm afraid of letting people down. As a child you are taught to be kind and help others without being taught how to love yourself but it's okay to be a little bit selfish sometimes.


The definition of 'self-love' is regard for one's own wellbeing and happiness with emphasis on the word own. It seems to be that self-love is something that everyone struggles with in one shape or another. I'm no different as I've definitely had my own battles, one of which I spoke about recently in my small boobs post, and I'm still guilty of not being able to accept a complement and not quite getting the work, life, study balance right. We are all striving for perfection without assessing how achievable it is, we are too hard on ourselves and social media, magazines and the media often hinder this rather than help. With valentines being less than a week away I think we should all be focussing on and celebrating loving ourselves for our own wellbeing and happiness.

Current Beauty Favourites


It's february, it's birthday month and I can see the spring light at the end of the long winter tunnel. While this year winter hasn't been too bad all the changeable weather has played havoc with my hair and skin as you may already know from my winter hair care post, which you can find here. I thought I'd share a few of my beauty favourites at the moment which I am loving.
