Recipe // Sweet Summer Salad

I don't know about you but I am loving this weather warming up (apart from the odd April showers!), and the sunshine peeking through the clouds makes me inspired. I whipped up this little salad whilst enjoying some evening sunshine and thought I would share this with you, Throw some salad leaves, some fruit and of course ... some cheese in a bowl and I think this is my new Spring, Summer dinner favourite!


- Bowl full of salad leaves
- Half a cucumber
- Handful of strawberries
- 3tbsp Pomegranate seeds
- Desired amount of Feta Cheese
- Salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar to serve

Just throw the above ingredients in a bowl and enjoy!

What's your favourite salad mix?

Spring Fashion Staples

Seeing as we are in full Spring now, and the weather is starting to warm up *fingers crossed*, I thought I would share with you my favourite Spring clothing items to throw on in one of my favourite times of year!

Striped T-Shirt
The striped t-shirt is such a classic, like the LBD. And this Spring is no different, all of the high street and online stores have different styles, colours and stripe sizes, so you are bound to find one that suits you. It can be dressed up with skinny jeans and heels, or dressed down with boyfriend jeans and trainers and perfect for this time of year.

Cropped jeans
Jeans are all cropped this season! If you're brave enough then the cropped flare is the biggest trend of the season. I am not that brave so will be purchasing some cropped skinny jeans instead, showing just that hint of ankle (Give it a bit of sun ready for Summer), if you get the right length for your height then they can lengthen your legs.

Chambray Shirt
Another classic trend, making a bigger mark this season is the Chambray Shirt. These are so versatile, and you can always find one to fit your style. Long, cropped, fitted, baggy, wear them open or buttoned all the way to the top! (See I told you they were versatile!)

1 / 2

Bomber Jackets
The epitome of an off day outer layer, bombers are everywhere this season. They are the perfect item to just throw on over your casual day outfit or to dress down your evening look! A black bomber is a classic, but why not jazz it up with a ___ one?!

White Trainers

I cannot tell you how happy I am that trainers are still here, and they seem to be staying. Throw on you cropped jeans with some Stan Smiths or KSwiss and you're ready to go! In the evening pair these with a lose dress and a bomber jacket for a casual Spring evening look.

Monday Motivation // Think Less Do More

This is one problem that I, and probably most other people in this day and age struggle with. I want to turn my jewellery making into a business, I want to blog regularly (failing at that at the moment), take up running, there are things for work I want to do from home, as well as turn my flat in to a show home and as a result, I don't do anything as there are so many things running through my head I am not sure which to do first.

So lets all resolve to 'Think Less' and 'Do More'. Focus on one thing for this week ... Schedule a few weeks' worth of blog posts, run three times a week or whatever it is that you want to work on, and think about everything else less.

What would you like to think about less? And what would you like to do more of?

Monday Motivation // Life Begins At The End Of Your Comfort Zone

'Life Begins At The End Of Your Comfort Zone'

Your softest jogging bottoms, your favourite herbal tea and your favourite books, are the right kind of comfort. The comfort that I am talking about is when you are too nervous to ask for a pay rise, not starting that business you've always dreamed of for fear of failure or even being being scared of moving out.

This is the comfort zone that is hindering, not helping you. I am that exact person that likes my little comfort zone, doing the same thing every day makes me smile inside, but that is not helping me! *shakes finger at self*. Everything outside your comfort zone is scary, unpredictable and unknown, but that is where life begins. So today I challenge you to do one thing out of your comfort zone, talk to a stranger on the bus, buy the domain name for your first web store or set up a meeting with a mortgage advisor! 

What would you like to do out of your comfort zone?
