A day trip to coolum...
Just look at that view...
If you're on the sunshine coast I highly recommend you check out Coolum for the day, it is a beautiful small town.
with beautiful coastline, beautiful walks and yummy cafes.
A week in PERegian...
One of the hardest weeks I’ve had so far!
Oh man it was so hard for me to not book a flight home during this week.
This was such a hard week for me as I had just left my parents and brother after the most amazing 3 weeks with them. And all I wanted to do was go home with them!
eating out in noosa...
Before I go any where I always do a major Instagram hunt for the coolest and most chic cafes or restaurants in the area.
I already had a few places I wanted to go back to in Noosa that we had previously tried and there was a few new ones I needed to try! So of course for the whole 2 weeks we lived like kings and Queens eating all the food Noosa had to offer.
Noosa is great for adventurous people that love all sports or it’s perfect for those that love to chill by the pool or catch some sun by the beach. There is many beaches to choose from.
Noosa national park...
Noosa National Park.....
Where to start?
I think the national park is one of my favourite things to do in Noosa! With endless paths to walk around and a different bay around each corner, theres always something different to hunt for whether that be a koala, dolphin, lizard or even turtles, you'll never get bored just very hot! (*haha*)
First stop on our 3 weeks of adventures, was a quick pit stop in Caloundra for a much needed stretch and lunch stop!
Such a beautiful little town on the sunshine coast, beautiful turquoise sea, soft sand and yummy cafe 'Beaus'.
South bank food loving...
Before I started my journey down under I created the longest list of cafes/ restaurants that I wanted to try out and oh boy have I been working my way through my list. It has been wonderful!
If you follow me on Instagram you'll know that back on the IOW I loved making smoothie bowls for breakfast, So I was soooooo excited to get to all the smoothie bowl cafes out here.
I’ve been here a month.... a month!
If you had told me this at the beginning of the year that I would of lasted a month on my own in a different country I would of laughed in your face.
So it’s day 18 of being in Australia and I’m laying on streets beach getting my tan on, listening to Deliciously Ella’s podcasts and it’s really got me thinking about my own goals in life and what practise I try to follow everyday....
2 weeks inn...
I've survived the first 2 weeks!
And I’m currently made up of soya cappuccinos, smoothie bowls and avocado toast, but I’m not complaining! That’s how the Aussies do it right?
The first day of school...
The start of my new adventure in life fits in well with this time of year! Almost like I planned it.
The beginning of a new school year.
It’s the time of year to find your feet, rediscover who you are after the long summer! Learn and plan for your future.
I almost feel like I’m moving on to my new school finding my path in a unfamiliar place. Making my way in a new surrounding and learning who I am. And making new friends.
Vegan Energy balls...
Energy Balls are definitely one of my favourite snacks to make as they are so simple and quick and easy to whip up. You can literally just throw it all into a food processor and woo its done.And they taste so goooood! There are some great recipes out there pinterest is a great place to look for inspiration.
Sweet potato, mushroom and coconut cream curry.....
This is one of those recipes that comes to me at around 12:30 in the afternoon when i'm already thinking what do I want for dinner and my mind just travels through all the cupboards and the fridge, until I think of something that I feel will taste amazing. And oh my did this taste great!
Fearne cottons vegan mango cheesecake!!
This was seriously one of the greatest things I have ever eaten in my whole life (vegan or not), I truly feel there is new gate way for cheesecakes- the healthy alternative!
It was truly amazing It just tasted like a cheesecake but didn't leave you with that awful full/sick feeling you get after eating a slice of "normal" cheesecake. I think I could of eaten this whole vegan cheesecake and still of felt fine. (But I wouldn't advise you to do that)
Vegan Mexican chilli!
Mexican food has always and will always be my favourite food?
I love Mexican chilli with nachos, tacos or rice and I've been looking for the perfect vegan alternative to a chilli mix and I think I've finally made a perfect mix.
so I thought I would share it with you all to enjoy.
Oreo cake...Vegan or Not!
who doesn't love chocolate Oreo cake... Especially that oreos can be vegan too!
Oreo cake all round.
I recently made this cake for work for our Macmillen coffee morning and oh wow this cake was a hit. We had a Bake off at work for the event before selling the cakes and I won 'BEST BAKER'!
The dream is coming true i'm one day going to be Mary Berry. Hehe!
Vegan!... Yes i'm a vegan.
i'm no expert or professional but oh my being vegan has completely changed my life! No joke..
so here is some of my story so far with being vegan..
I decided to go vegan in February but to be truthfully honest I had eaten vegan for 3 days without even noticing it.
Bake off is back!
what's more fitting than a baking blog post, when its bake off week!
I know nothing else seems right.
The Great British bake off is back.... finally! Its not the same without Mary Berry, Mel and Sue but its one of those things that the British public are going to have to adjust too. But to be truthfully honest with you I still loved bake off last night and I just wish it was on every night; roll on next Tuesday
LIttle Lunch date...
Today was spent with one my all time favourite people eating great food and drinking amazing tea.
Finding cute and quirky little cafes on the Island is one of our favourite things to do, not just for the cute interior to take amazing photos but of course for the yummy lunches and fruit tea.
We found a little B&B 'One Holyrood', it was right up my street all vintage decor and interior. My favourite!
Avocado on toast with a twist...
This is is no ordinary avocado on toast... .This is the greatest avocado on toast you'll ever eat!
Kale crisps and avocado on toast with a poached egg, what more do you need..!
food // 18 January, 2017
I actually can't believe how quick and easy smoothie bowls are to make! I've always seen SOso many recipes and Instagram posts on smoothie bowls and have always thought they looked LUSH. But I never bothered to try and make one because I thought it was too much hassel.
Well I've finally got round to make one and i'm never going to stop!
Travel// 18 january 2016
Last year was one of my all time favourite years for travels. I had little get aways and one big trip but they where all equally amazing!
My biggest trip and most favourite trip of 2016 was going back to Australia after 11 years...
And I fell in love with the country all over again!
