Happy Easter & Spring Goals

Floral Happy Easter

So spring has officially sprung as of last weekend and I'm forever grateful that my iPhone knows which way the clocks change to save me lots of confusion. I have to say the weather outside looked lovely during the week although I bet it was still a little nippy. I've only just been allowed off bed rest from the doctor and it is seasonably raining for the near future which is typical.

Cheltenham Festival Photo Diary

On Thursday, myself and my mother continued our annual tradition and attended Cheltenham Festival. We started our day with a full english breakfast at the Pittville Pump Room just a 5 minute walk from the entrance to the course and then headed on in for a day of racing and glorious sunshine. While we had no winners, we had an amazing day and can't wait to go back next year. Here's a quick photo diary of the day - sorry about some of the photos being a little grainy they were taken quite poorly on my iPhone.

7 Organisation Tips

One thing that drives me crazy is when I feel like i'm wasting time due to a lack of organisation. It increases my stress levels ridiculously and i'm sure I look like i'm about to explode as a result. I often get asked by my fellow students and work colleagues how I manage to fit everything in and it is simply down to being organised with life. Here are some tips and tricks which help me keep my life organised...

Cheltenham Festival Wishlist

So this week I am following an annual tradition and going to Cheltenham Festival with my lovely Motherbear. We go every year for at least one day of the festival and fancy our chances having a little flutter accompanied with a little fizz. This year we have decided to go on St Patricks Day of the festival (although Ladies Day is a firm favourite of mine) as the crazy Guinness hats always brighten my day and the outfits go from amazingly elegant and stylish to quite frankly garish - yes, man in the horse print suit from 2015 I'm talking about you.

Recipe: Chocolate Fudge Cake Easter Nests

Chocolate Fudge Cake Easter Nest Recipe

As my love of the easter chocolate season grows I took a leap of faith in the baking world and decided to combine the chocolate fudge cupcake with an easter favourite of mine the chocolate nest. The equation of chocolate + chocolate always appears to be a winner. The verdicts from my brother and James (chief taste testers) were so good that they both immediately ate two each.  The only test left for them to ace will be when my gran tries them - and she's the hardest cookie to crumble for taste testing - I'm secretly confident that these easter delights will achieve A* across the board.

Center Parcs: A Weekend in the Forest

Over the weekend myself and James escaped down to our nearest Center Parcs at Longleat Forest. We both really enjoy taking a trip to stay in the forest as there is something that feels so fresh and healthy about being there - the increased amounts of walking help with this too! We enjoyed games of badminton, visits from deer, ducks and squirrels, excitement going down the rapids, a trip to the carvery and a very necessary visit to the pancake house. Here is a quick photo diary of the weekend:
