BITS & PIECES | 01.03.16

coffee It’s been a manic month since I came back from holiday, but I couldn’t be more grateful for the busy-ness. It’s helped me focus on the things I really care about, and also made me realise there’s a few things I’ve been neglecting. My birthday a couple of weeks ago saw me turn the big three-oh(!), and while it was a little bit scary, I’m enjoying being exactly where I am in life. Here are five moments captured over the past week that I’m so grateful for. I hope you ... Read More





        

HOW TO ASSEMBLE A FESTIVE CHEESE PLATTER + AN INTERVIEW WITH CHEESE EXPERT FRANCOIS ROBIN

festive cheese platter It’s the festive season, and if you’re anything like me then you’ve probably got a calendar packed full of cocktail parties to go to, and dinner parties to host.

Here’s what I do to get ready so that I ca ... Read More





        

BITS & PIECES | 13.07.15

spaghetti al pomodoro - bits and pieces I thought I’d ease back into blogging with a quick Bits & Pieces post to give you a glimpse of what I’ve been up to this past week. Those of you who follow me on Instagram know that I’m in Italy for the summer, which has been unbelievably hot so far. This past week has been slightly less eventful than most; all my friends who were visiting have left, and I’ve been settling back into a more leisurely routine and catching up on work. Here are snapshots of happy moments from the past few days. {si ... Read More





        

MY COPENHAGEN FOOD GUIDE – MARCH 2015

Copenhagen Grey skies, old brick buildings, bicycles whizzing past you, and the smell of warm cinnamon rolls wafting through the air as you approach a giant golden pretzel suspended almost mid-air—a symbol that tells you there’s a bakery right underneath. Copenhagen, you stole my heart. Two months ago I traveled to Copenhagen for the first time. It was my stop-over choice on a more adventurous trip to Iceland. I’d always wanted to go to Denmark, largely because of Noma*, but also because I’d heard and read things about the ... Read More
