    How I’m Getting Beach Body Ready

    Summer is around the corner, or at least I hope so. The weather has been very up and down lately, not being able to make up its mind. The Easter bank holiday weekend was glorious and I hope that sun and heat will come back. I want the heat wave summer we had last year. I have prepped my body for it! When warmer weather comes, I can comfortably walk around in light clothes and tan wearing only a bikini on the beach balcony or outside on the grass. Yes, loosing weight and toning up at the gym has definitely helped but there are products out there to help you get…

  • Portobello Road Gin

    Classic Gin Cocktails with Portobello Road Gin

    Gin is my go to spirit. Even more so when I learnt it’s the best if you’re wanting to keep your calorie intake on the low. A gin and slimline tonic is around 60 calories, compared to a pint of beer which is around 200. I have yet to decide which my favourite gin brand is, there are too many fighting for the top position, but I know a good brand when I see it. Ever heard of Portobello Road Gin? Of course you have but perhaps you’ve not been acquainted with some of the classic cocktails you can make with it. I was invited to a gin masterclass with…

  • Archive Leeds

    Archive | New Independent Coffee Shop in Leeds

    The longest and most boring stretch of my bike ride to and from work is along Kirkstall Road. I can cycle for minutes thinking there’s no life to it. Behind the scenes and if you looks closer, there totally is! Most popular is likely to be Temple Coffee & Donuts. Although hidden, it’s attracting people to the area which is great. Starting to bridge its gap from city centre, on the opposite end of the road, Archive* has opened up. I spotted it from the sidelines during its development and not long after it opened up, I was excited to check it out. You bet I love the yellow, black…

    Easy Easter Baking Recipes

    I prefer baking over cooking and I prefer Easter over any other holiday so why not combine the two loves and share a couple of easy Easter baking recipes? Hot Cross Bun Muffins I say I love Easter but it’s not till this year that I tried hot cross buns for the first time. My excuse is that we don’t have them in Sweden and that I don’t like raisins in bakes. In the last couple of years, so many new flavours, alongside the original recipe, has launched so even I can enjoy them. I have seen salted caramel and even blueberry hot cross buns but I bought the apple…

  • Shoot the Bull meal deal

    Shoot the Bull in Trinity Kitchen

    Trinity Kitchen* has yet again changed the street food line-up. I went to check them out and absolutely fell in love with Shoot the Bull from Hull. They’re definitely the star of the show this time around. When I read about them it was the sound of their seafood mac n’ cheese and rice balls that I liked the sound of. However, their menu changes depending on location. In Trinity Kitchen, they’ve focused on beef burgers, chips and the Canadian special – poutine. Shoot the Bull Poutine I’ve never had poutine before but I love trying new foods so gave it a go. Poutine is a Canadian dish consisting of…
