Chocolate chia cookies

I am an absolute cookie monster! Okay.. I love all things sweet but cakes and cookies are definitely my biggest weakness. As I write this I’m on a plane and I’m greedily eyeing up the air hostesses handing out white chocolate cookies – I’m in the middle so I get to be served twice, once from each side.. that’s how it works right!? 🙂 In my opinion, nothing is better than a warm, fresh cookie, slightly underdone in the middle, chewy and stuffed full of chocolate chunks!  Continue reading Chocolate chia cookies

Beigel Bake

Do you like bagels? What a stupid question, everyone likes bagels. Be prepared to meet THE bagel. The only bagel you need in your life. Seriously, I can guarantee it will be the best bagel you eat in London. Or the UK. (I would say the world but given the States is the bagel capital of the world that’d be a pretty bold assumption..). It’s soft, chewy, has that perfect bagel-y glaze on top, and it’s stuffed to the brim with tender chunks of juicy salt beef (or anything else you’d like .. but at least try the salt beef too!).

BAO

Following on from my random rant the other day about not liking inconsiderate people, I also hate disrespectful people. I feel like I get it from waitresses and shop assistants a lot. I go to Selfridges a lot to get gelato and wander round the food hall to look at all their amazing food and eat their free samples. But sometimes I wander into the designer section and some of the shop assistants just look at me like ‘what are you doing here?’ Has anyone ever had the experience of walking into an expensive shop and felt like they’ve been looked down on!? I’ll admit I probably don’t help myself by the fact that I look 12 (yay!) and that I always dress for comfort when I go into London (and all the time.. I live in leggings and baggy tops when I don’t have to be at work!) but that’s beside the point – I just think it’s an unnecessary judgement to make. Continue reading BAO

Dubai 2015

Nope it’s not a typo – I’m writing a blog post about a holiday I took over a year ago! I love to travel but my blog is so new that I haven’t been abroad since starting to write it and since I’m going back to Dubai in a month’s time, I thought I’d write a post about my favourite places which I visited last time and those which I plan to go back to 🙂 Continue reading Dubai 2015

Brickwood coffee & bread

I sometimes wonder if I’m the worst decision maker in the world. The strangest thing is that I’m most indecisive about the small insignificant things – what to order at a restaurant, which film to watch, which flavour of ice cream to choose, which day to train shoulders – the things that don’t matter.. And when it comes to making big decisions I just make a pros and cons list and almost don’t get phased by it. Choosing where to eat is one of those silly decisions that I just can’t make.. I eat out multiple times each week, every week, so I know I’m going to get to try most of the places on my list at some point but I still struggle every single week to pick which places to go!
