Disclosure: I wrote this post last year and have only just found it in my documents, I contemplated rewriting it but I loved the memories it brought back and Amsterdam was such a good trip I didn't want to take anything away from it! So here you go, a throwback to 2019...
We all know what it's like trying to survive yet another work week, meeting deadlines or studying for exams. Trying to manage your work and home life can be difficult and sometimes your efforts just slip through the cracks. I myself have found difficulties trying to find that balance and have resolved to make more of an effort to take care of myself and my well being rather than focusing entirely on the demands of work. With this in mind, here are a fair few ways to help you make it through the work week.
Rome is a city of history, culture, architecture and amazing food. In other words, it's my kind of city. Travelling to new places is always exciting, especially those with so much to offer that everyday is guaranteed to be different. But it can be hard to know what to do in a new place, let alone a different country. After my recent trip to Rome I thought about all I had learned and so I decided it was only fair to share my knowledge with you all, so that anyone who does visit Rome in the future can feel comfortable knowing they have an understanding of the city and what to expect before they jet off.
It can be hard knowing what to prepare for a meal when you’re on a healthy eating kick. You can get lost in the calories, fats and food group combinations- I know I do. Thing is, not everyone enjoys the same food and it can be hard to come up with meals that are both healthy and enjoyable. You shouldn't have to compromise food you like in favour of what is deemed to be 'better' for you.
I love a good cup of tea, as stereotypically British as that is, it's my drink of choice. I have one in the morning before I start my day, occasionally at work when I can and at night after I get home. So when I received some sample pyramid tea bags from Shibui Tea to taste and review, I cannot tell you how happy I was to try some new flavours. And widen my horizons, if you will.
Everyone tends to feel that January pressure to get back to whatever shape they were in before Christmas came around to tempt us all with endless amounts of chocolates, Christmas dinner, party food and alcohol. I’m no different.
As I've said in previous posts, recently I have found myself getting more interested in cooking, so I thought I would share with you some of my weekly recipes. Especially seeing as though I’m still a new blogger, I thought this would be a good way to continue the getting-to-know-me process!
As I've probably mentioned in my previous posts, I wasn't always cooking's biggest fan. But this past year I have come to enjoy cooking and all things kitchen related, believe it or not. It had given me a way to enjoy something different in my life that I didn’t have previously.
