FFF’s Fashion Stories: March On!

March is a weird month – it’s still freezing, but the sun is shining… from inside it looks warm enough to frolick coatless in the grass, but when you finally get outside you realise you might just need to add a scarf as well…

My dieting and workout regime is continuing well – I’ve currently lost a stone and a half, despite all my restaurant reviews… To keep myself motivated I’ve been creating fashion flatlays with some of my old clothes, because I know it’s just a matter of time before they fit me again. This is an old ASOS dress (seen on me here), paired with my beloved Chloe Drew, and a new pair of shoes from ASOS. These were purchased as a pretty good replikate for the Duchess of Cambridge’s Gianvito Rossi Suede d’Orsay Pumps. As of writing, the Penalty pumps are still available in most sizes, for the bargain price of £32!

Wahaca Arrives In Southampton

Last month I was lucky enough to be invited to the press launch of Wahaca in Southampton. Sometimes I need to pinch myself – I really am so grateful to every restaurant kind enough to throw open their doors for me to share their delights with you all!

Snackage of the Month: March Edition

I told you guys before that I’m the queen of snacking  – and if you’re going to snack, you better make sure it’s healthy. Okay, I like to chow down on chilli crackers and pork scratchings (sorry), but sometimes you want to reach for something a bit more wholesome.

Bordelaise, Tooting: A Plateful of France in the Heart of London

At some point during this meal, I realised I had hit the jackpot. Not only is Bordelaise truly authentic French cuisine, but it’s affordable, and it’s a short Tube journey from my usual London haunts. I challenge you to find me a more decently priced and bona fide steak-frites inside the M25. No, really – if there’s better French food for this price somewhere else in London, please do let me know!

Lizi's Granola Parfait and Smoothie Bowl

Lizi’s Granola Parfait and Smoothie Bowl: Healthy Breakfast Recipes

One of my favourite things to eat at breakfast time is a smoothie or a granola and yoghurt parfait. Okay, so they’re not as quick as grabbing a bowl of cereal or a piece of toast, but it’s so much better for you, and keeps you feeling fuller so much longer than empty carbs! Plus, are you really going to Instagram your Marmite on toast? Well, maybe if you cut it into triangles…

Office Makeover Part One: The Preview

I’ve worked from home for a long time now – there are ups and downs, but one of the biggest ups has completely passed me by… until now! That’s the ability to create a working space which is beautiful, personal, and inspires you to get up to get to work every day! I have no before pictures of my office, but I can describe it to you and you’ll understand why my before photos are somewhat lacking. Picture light beigey-yellow walls, light beige carpet, dark blue curtains with a splodge pattern on them, a dark purple/blue desk covered in a mountain of paperwork, two birch IKEA Billy bookcases full to the brim with magazines and books, and a second desk in birch, slowly collapsing, covered in everything from signed autographs to games, folders, papers and ornaments. I hated it.

I’ve always wanted something light, bright, and airy, and over the past couple of weeks I’ve transformed this room with the help of my family into my ultimate dream space! I’m not going to unveil it yet because it’s not quite finished, but here are a few little sneak-peeks…
