Tim Tams

I would definitely consider myself adventurous with food and love trying out the famous dishes and baked goods from countries all over the world. Last year I not only went to Japan, Korea, and the Middle-East with my kitchen adventures, but also Nigeria, Russia, and Finland. I like to think I'm culinary well-travelled, but one… Continue reading Tim Tams

Handmade Placemats

I don't if it's the countless hours of Project Runway I've seen or just a general penchant for crafts but I've been desperate to own a sewing machine for years. The idea of creating my own clothes really excites me, not to mention the countless cushion covers, curtains, and blankets I could make. It's been… Continue reading Handmade Placemats

Art History Course

Like most people, I'm getting a little weary about the endless lockdowns at the moment. I still miss the big picture things like family, friends, and travelling, but I'm really starting to miss the simpler things like spending the afternoon squirrelled away in a cinema or a museum too. Thankfully, a lot of museums have… Continue reading Art History Course

Melon Pan

This week I got back to playing around with my favourite thing in the kitchen – bread. Nothing gives me more pleasure than getting my hands stuck into some dough and seeing what deliciousness will come out. I've made no end of bread loves over the past few years, but I like experimenting with different… Continue reading Melon Pan

Cruffins

Posting about sweet, decadent treats isn't the usual January blog content, I know, but I'm always happy to bake new things, no matter what time of year it is. If you followed me last year, you'll likely know how much I valued the Puff the Bakery baking course I started last summer. I went from… Continue reading Cruffins

Yoga in the Forest

New year, new things... I'm not going to lie, it's been tough not doing new things every day. There have been many, many times where I've been wandering around my house, convinced that I should be doing something. I couldn't resist the lure of the new for long though, and I'm back, ready to dive… Continue reading Yoga in the Forest

Best of the Year

It's been a long year and I've just finished my challenge of doing something new every day. There's been some good, some bad, and some I never want to do again (here's looking at you, Rubik's cube) but I've had fun exploring new areas and discovering interesting things. I wanted to look back and sum… Continue reading Best of the Year

Day 366 – Same-day Sunrise and Sunset

I thought long and hard about how I wanted to end my challenge. For a long time I was going to simply stay out all night, something this good girl had never done, but as lockdowns became tighter and stricter, I realised I'd be likely just sat on a park bench all night. That was… Continue reading Day 366 – Same-day Sunrise and Sunset

Day 365 – Doughnuts

I've tried to schedule some of the big bakes for my last couple of new things. After croissants and pain au chocolat, the other thing I really wanted to try making this year was doughnuts. I like a doughnut now and again, but my husband loves them and I thought it would be a really… Continue reading Day 365 – Doughnuts

Day 364 – Tried to DJ

I've tried my hand at a few musical new things over the year from learning to play the otamatone and kalimba, to trying to recreate a song using my own beatbox sounds. One thing I've always fancied trying my hand at though is DJing, and I figured with New Year's Eve right around the corner… Continue reading Day 364 – Tried to DJ
