Non-stop Coffee Shop

I’m one of those people that loves coffee shops and not coffee. I’m much more a juicer / chai and tea drinker, I just can’t get my head around that bitter taste or living with coffee breath (queue flashbacks to coffee breath driving instructor). I also don’t drink milk, so to have coffee black or…

My hygge home

It’s official! I now live in an adorable, old house surrounded by beams in a quite little town just outside of Oxford overlooking spires, pretty old houses and at night the cutest of sunsets.

It’s a well known fact amongst all who know me that I simply adore the festivities that Christmas brings! It’s the little things I love. The fun in finding gifts for loved ones, seeing the decorations go up all over the world, enjoying endless Christmas parties, dinners and snuggling up under great big blankets sipping…

Home comforts

Cosy home comforts for most of us are more or less the same. Hot drinks in pretty mugs Blankets and pillows Warm fires Cookies Warm muffins Wine Pet snuggles Friends and family … The list goes on and on! So for this cold weekend in November, be you in England at home, Norway sledding or…
