Food | Food & Cider Pairing with Thatchers

Thatchers cider with the tannin table and apples at Pasture Bristol

Being born and raised in Bristol it's true to say that drinking cider runs in my blood. There is simply nothing more refreshing on a hot summers day than to open an ice cold cider and sit in the sunshine.


Typically my cider of choice is something fruity and not too dry, I know what I like and I tend to stick to it. Or I thought I did until Thatchers invited me to a Cider pairing evening at Pasture in Bristol.

Fitness | Getting Back into Running with Couch to 5k

Rachel Emily Running Along the Bristol Harbourside

So a couple of months ago I had a moment of insanity and put my name into the hat ballot for the London Marathon 2019.

Now to highlight the scale of crazy that this is - I'm best known for running a bath instead of actual running. If I really push myself then I can run a mile in about 12 minutes and I practically have to lie down for a good solid hour afterwards before my legs will even thinking about moving again.

Giveaway | 1k Followers Giveaway

Selection of the giveaway prizes with pink peonies and pink ribbon


1,000 is an even composite number often referred to as a kilo or a grand. It's also the number of followers I reach on Instagram a couple of weeks ago. What made this Insta-milestone extra special is that two of my favourite blogger ladies, and friends - Katie Jane Konstanz and Lois La Mode, also hit the same milestone. So, to celebrate we are hosting a joint giveaway with prizes worth over £300. Yep you heard me right, over £300.

Fashion | Wedding Guest Outfit Inspiration

Wedding season is already upon us and last weekend I was happy to be invited to celebrate the wedding of two friends. It was a gorgeous day and I inadvertently managed to dress to match their New York theme where the colour scheme was taxi yellow and blue. Every wedding is different and it can be hard to know what to wear to suit the weather, the formality of the occasion, what suits you and most importantly to be comfortable.

Wellbeing | How to Sneak 10,000 steps into your Daily Routine

When I worked in retail 10,000 steps a day was a breeze, I could do it by 11am. Now I find myself walking around my car a few times to get an extra couple of hundred at lunchtime or to the printer and back a few times more than I need just to edge closer to that magic 10k.

Fashion | Friday Fix

Welcome to June.

This month is probably one of the most hectic on my calendar for the whole of 2018. Five concerts, a wedding, a family birthday and a day at the polo and that's just on the weekends. With all of these events though comes the need for different outfits/looks so here are some of my favourite pieces I have my eye on at the moment.
