Mary Berry’s Banana Loaf!

I think people who don’t even like bananas must like banana loaf.  It is such a tasty and comforting food, I personally love it!  I have been trying to find the perfect homemade recipe for a while now, and after trying many different versions (some good and some AWFUL…

Homeware Wish List! Things I’m loving right now!

If you have ever been to my apartment, you will know that I am a fan of bright white spaces with the odd pop of colour and a fair share of plants.  As I live in a one bed apartment, it is important to keep everything quite neutral in order…

H&M Home! Why I Love It and My Favourite Pieces

The Scents To Be Wearing This Spring!

I am an absolute perfume fanatic…….. I’m the type of person who will apply perfume even if I intend to stay at home alone all day.  However, I can’t say that I have a HUGE collection of perfume, and this is for two reasons: I am incredibly…
