Birthday in Cannes

So, i’ve only gone and hit the big 30. I know most people really worry about it, but for me I was just looking forward to the holiday that I got to go on to celebrate it! I picked somewhere I probably wouldn’t go for a regular holiday – the…

Super skin salad

So they say you are what they eat, and this salad is designed to feed your skin all the goodness it needs to be fabulous. And it is pretty darn tasty and filling for a salad too, trust me.

Getting Jammy in Hope Cove

Close your eyes and imagine this….You’re just waking up from a deep sleep, you can hear waves crashing gently on the beach outside your window, a seagull calls to its friends, the sun is beaming in through your window, and amongst the delicious sea-salty air, you are also getting wafts of freshly brewed coffee and toast….

That’s what we woke up to on our first morning in Hope Cove. And if I thought I was dreaming, looking out of the window to this brought me to my oh-so-lucky senses.

Arriving in Hope Cove, Devon

Months ago, well before this happened, we planned a few days break in Devon to celebrate my Dad’s birthday. There was a lot of talk about us cancelling the trip, but my Grandma, despite still being incredibly poorly and needing a ventilator was insistent that we went. After a teary goodbye (on my behalf) we set off hoping when we returned she would be a little better.

We pointed the car’s nose south, and kept driving until we hit the coast – stopping on the way to see some family friends in Brixham.

We sneaked along little roads which were barely more than tracks, until we arrived in Hope Cove. We quickly unpacked and headed to the beach – which was literally on our doorstep.

Fumo

On the weekend, I took the boyfriend out for a birthday meal. It wasn’t his actually his birthday though – he’d buggered off on holiday without me for that (the cheek!) but I wanted to celebrate it anyway.

We’d heard a lot about a little Italian tapas in Birmingham called Fumo, so we headed down for a little pizza Italy right in the centre of Birmingham.

It’s close to the business district and has a very glamourous upmarket vibe. In fact, it was hard to tell the guests from the girls welcoming guests to their table!

Homemade sunblushed tomatoes

Have you ever found yourself staring in the fridge desperate for something tasty to eat but have nothing much more staring back at you than a box of tomatoes?

No? Well, it happened to me and I knew exactly what to do to make those little toms into the delicious snack I was dreaming about – slowly roast them until they become supersonic bombs of flavour which make anything you pair them with delicious, elegant and satisfying.

A complex complexion

As I am speedily approaching a landmark birthday (ahem), I am naturally considering all the things I would like to improve in my life. Coming up top of the list (that I can change anyway) is my skin.

Lusting after: Patterned floor tiles

My house is pretty neutral, as far as houses go. I don’t have many splashes of colour or pattern. But all that is about to change. I’ve had my eye on some patterned floor tiles to funk up my… downstairs loo. I know, I know – not exactly adventurous, but a girl has to start somewhere right?

My favourite blogs

I was pretty late to the blogosphere, both reading other people’s blogs and writing my own. But when I started, I just couldn’t stop and now blogs are a major part of my daily consumption.

Here are some of my favourite blogs out there, and where I get a lot of inspiration from:

Hello May

may-image-3

May played a game of hide and seek with me this year. I knew it was coming, after all I do know the order of the months. But when it popped up, it still made me jump and say “Oh hello May, where did you come from?”
