A Date at the Gym!

Dining Out: Flat Iron

Girly catch ups are the best! I decided to meet my girls for Sunday lunch (would have been brunch but we just couldn’t make it that early). We rocked up to Flat Iron in Soho around 3.30pm and got a table straightaway, which was absolutely […]

Hi lovely people! Hope you’re all having a great weekend. One of my top weekend activities is brunching…it makes me so happy! And where better to go than the self-proclaimed home of pancakes – Where The Pancakes Are – in Southwark? What I love (slightly) […]

Just Do It!

Just Do It!

We've all been there – we're in a job we hate but we continue to work there, complaining about how awful our boss is, or how long our hours are, or how boring the work is. Or it could be a relationship: stuck with someone […]

Real Life in: Cuba – Part 1

My heart! Cuba is literally EVERYTHING. I’ve wanted to go ever since I was about 12 years old watching Vanessa Williams slay the salsa and about every other dance in the movie Dance With Me. Thinking about it, that may have been where my obsession […]

Burger and Lobster

I haven’t been to Burger and Lobster in a while so thought Friday night would be a good opportunity to try it again, I was ravenous too! Without a booking it can be a long and tedious wait for a table, but at the Threadneedle Street […]

Recipe: Easiest Nigerian Beans You’ll Ever Make!

Recipe: Easiest Nigerian Beans You’ll Ever Make!

Making beans – everyone has their own recipe. It’s funny because growing up in Nigeria I practically hated beans, but as I’ve got older I’ve started to love them more and more. Especially as I realised they can be quite healthy. My biggest issue with […]

Wedding Guest – Metallics and Pastels

Recipe: Fried Brown Rice

Recipe: Fried Brown Rice

I have always struggled to make healthy choices when it comes to food. My taste buds just don’t like green stuff. One thing I started doing a couple of years ago was to replace some of the normal things I eat with slightly healthier options […]

Dining Out: Brunch at Bill’s

Dining Out: Brunch at Bill’s

Brunch is literally my favourite meal. I know some people say it’s not a real meal but those people suck! 😛 Had a great catch up with old friends at Bill’s Baker Street. Sadly they don’t do an official “brunch”, it’s either breakfast or lunch […]

Recipe: Creamy Coconut Linguine

Recipe: Creamy Coconut Linguine

Funny enough I’m not a big fan of coconut, yeah I said it – you can pick your jaw off the floor now. Honestly I’ve just never really got the appeal. I do find that now I can appreciate it in (very) small doses, and […]

Recipe: Jollof rice (using Basmati)

Recipe: Jollof rice (using Basmati)

Jollof is bae, to put it simply. I mean this West African dish satisfies many a hungry wedding or party guest and is a staple in many Nigerian homes. Of course there is the age-long debate of Ghana Jollof vs Nigeria Jollof but we won’t […]

Recipe: American-style Pancakes

Two things you need to know about me: 1) Brunch is my favourite meal, and 2) I freaking LOVE pancakes! For a while they were my standard Saturday breakfast (sorry, brunch) staple until my fitfam-by-force boyfriend came along and ruined it all *side eye* – […]

DIY – Metallic Photo Frames

DIY – Metallic Photo Frames

I absolutely love baroque style decor, the sheer luxuriousness and regal feel…perfection to me. Funny enough I would still describe my style as simple and, dare I say elegant, so I guess it’s just a combination of the two. It’s been on my mind for […]

Let’s talk about cash, baby – 6 tips for dealing with money

Money, the one thing most of us wish we got more of (for less work ideally – or is that just me?) Occasionally a bit of a taboo to discuss but I think it’s important we girls start to focus on it. Studies have shown […]
