Recipe: Cauliflower Tabbouleh & Lamb Meatballs

While I absolutely abhor the word ‘diet’ (shudder), lately I’ve been making a conscious effort to improve the way I eat. I hate rules, and just cannot stick to any hard and fast limits I set myself. To that end, one of my very loose and immeasurable guidelines is simply less carbs. We all know courgetti is a great way to swap out carb-laden pasta …

Burgermeister, Berlin

Last month, we took a quick sojourn to two European cities I’d been dying to visit, Berlin and Prague.

#BeautyAtJL: New Philosophy Favourites

As a self-confessed beauty hoarder, it seems bizarre that when it comes to John Lewis, I don’t immediately think of beauty. I have a fab John Lewis store about 2 minutes walk away from my home, but I tend to hit it up for kitchen and homeware bits more than anything else. Pleased to report though, that my perceptions have been well and truly challenged …
