Taking Time.

Sometimes you just gotta take a little time. 

You may (or may not) have noticed that I've been a little MIA on the blog over the last month or so. This blog sabbatical was unplanned, but needed for various reasons. But as sometimes comes with taking a break, I've been finding it a little hard to get back on the wagon so to speak.

I'm sure that if you write a blog too you can appreciate the amount of time and effort that goes into keeping it running alongside all the promoting and engaging that goes with this. And to be honest I find it so hard to give my blog the time I feel it needs alongside balancing all the others things that I have and want to do. 

I love my little blog, I put a lot of hard work and time into it. It really does hold so much value for me in many ways and it's not something I want to fall by the wayside. So, I'm planning on getting my act together and slowly working my way back into it. I'm thinking about how I might need to rearrange things so that I can feel a bit more balanced and not end up devoting entire weekends to writing blog posts. Maybe that'll mean only posting twice a week instead of three. I'm not sure yet. But there will be new posts and fresh ideas coming your way - watch this space. 

In the mean time, thank you to anyone who finds themselves reading my blog, it honestly does mean so much that people take time out of their day to read my wittering! Peace and love ♥ xxx

Recipe | Roasted Cauliflower & Garlic Soup [VEGAN].

So I've been ever so slightly AWOL for the last week or so - my blogging mojo may have got up and done one. But I've hunted it down and we're on speaking terms so today I wanted to share a really quick, easy and super delicious soup recipe that can be whipped up with minimal effort.

Better Sleep Month.

May is Better Sleep Month. A whole month dedicated to promoting good sleep and encouraging people to do what they can to improve their sleep. Sleep is vital for promoting positive health and wellbeing and not getting enough or having poor quality sleep can leave us feeling rotten. Recently my sleep hasn't been as good as I'd like it to be, which is leaving me feeling tired and sluggish throughout the day. So today I'm sharing some of Casper's Better Sleep Month pledge cards (they know there's more to it than just their mattress!) along with how I'm going to work towards getting my sleep back on track.

Recipe | Pear & Pistachio Cake [VEGAN].

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love cake. All kinds of cake. Except from maybe fruit cake. But there's always exceptions to the rule isn't there? A few weeks ago I cobbled together this delicious, vegan pear cake with pistachio icing. It was a bit of an experiment but oh boy did it work out. So today I thought I'd share the recipe so that you can join the yum train with me.

Ways To Use Essential Oils ft. Buff & Butter*

Essential oils are not something I've ever dabbled in if I'm totally honest. It's something I've more recently had some interest in and had started to recognise some of the many uses of essential oils, but quite frankly I find all the information a little overwhelming as I had literally zero idea of how to use them. When I was offered the opportunity to try out some of the Buff and Butter essential oils* I decided that there was no time like the present to learn more about them so I could share my new knowledge with you lovely folks.
