6 TIPS TO QUIT NEGATIVE THINKING


Put your hand up if you always automatically think the worst, set yourself up to fail in things new to you or even make up scenarios which 9 times out of 10 will never happen *raises hand*. Thinking negatively has grown accustomed to our perspective and way of life. Our natural, human instinct is to over-analyse, over-think and speculate each and every bad situation we're crossed with and really, it's quite a sad thing.

LOOK-BACK | MY MAY IN PHOTOS


I feel every time I sit down to add this series to my blog, the months get more hectic and fun filled as the year goes by. We're now nearing the end of May - which I can't quite believe - so I thought this would be a good time to reflect and fill you in on life lately. I've began working overtime every week at work yet I'm still getting a good social life and cramming yet another little trip away in there too.

HOW TO | COMBAT BAD EATING HABITS


If you're aware of my recipes, then you'll know that I like to keep the vast majority of what I eat and cook healthy, wholesome and filling. Like anyone, I love a good takeaway, I almost definitely go to grab too many roasties on a Sunday and I could easily finish off a packet of biscuits if I was set to the challenge. But, it's definitely not something I would class as the norm in my lifestyle. To keep in shape, I have made gradual changes to certain bad eating habits that I used to have and it has honestly changed my outlook and quality of life as well as my view on food and nutrition.

MOVING HOUSE #2 | ONE WEEK PROGRESS


You may or may not have noticed my lack of posts over these past few weeks, but prior to that, I seemed to have a lot more free time on my hands in comparison to now - and that's okay. I've been solely preoccupied with moving house, a new job role and some well needed DIY on my new room. For the last installment of my moving house sequence, I discussed interior hopes, floor plans and old room vs. new. This week, I'm going to talk you through what I've managed to get done in my room so far - and it's honestly a complete transformation.

HOW TO | POACH THE PERFECT EGG


Scrambled, fried or poached? It's a no-brainer for me, I'm getting poached every time. Though, do you ever find when you opt for poached at home, they end up looking a million miles away from the insta worthy restaurant standard perfectly rounded ones?! Because, same. That is until I found a way of getting them perfect every time - well, the majority of the time.

MISTAKES WE MAKE TO LOSE WEIGHT


More times than not, I’m sure you’ve felt slightly podgy or rounder than usual – am I wrong? Too often when we try to do something about it the same mistakes are made again and again. Once we come to the realisation that there is no quick fix to losing weight and maintaining that loss, that’s when you’ll get a better understanding about nutrition, exercise and an all round healthy lifestyle.

MOVING HOUSE #1 | INTERIOR PLANS


The move that I've been eagerly anticipating since the beginning of February has finally happened, just yesterday. It's been a very long winded and tiring process but we are officially all moved in (ish). I've not been able to blog as much as I set out to, purely because (being the doughnut I am) I forgot that we had to wait for the wifi to be sorted at the new gaff. Luckily, through several attempts, I've found a way to avoid the wifi problem on the blogging front. Until that's finally sorted, I can go back to getting posts out regularly again.

AVOCADO SMASH BRUNCH RECIPE


Who doesn't like a nice bit of brunch? Poached eggs, crispy bacon, grilled mushrooms *drool*. As a lover of heading out for breakfast on weekends as well as cooking something up at home, I thought I'd feature one of my favourites recipes which is both a quick and easy breakfast dish - and it wont break the bank either. If you're a returning reader, you'll know I feature a raw recipe every fortnight, but this is the first - and probably not my last - savoury recipe. I've focused pretty heavily on baking over the past few months but my main aim has always been on keeping it as healthy and as raw as possible - which I will aim to do with everything savoury.
