Mental Health

Baking as self-care (Self-Care Sunday #42)

Before I had Jenson I used to bake every now and then - mainly because I was stressed and/or procrastinating. I've wanted to try baking with Jenson for a while but I'm a bit anal about doing things a certain way and it sounded a bit too stressful for my liking. But with more and… Continue reading Baking as self-care (Self-Care Sunday #42)

Mason Cash bakeware from Cuckooland

You don't have to be a Great British Bake Off addict to be into your bakeware.

Tried and tested: Chocolate birthday cake

I mentioned last week that I made the boyfriend a birthday cake and if you've read a few of my posts you'll know that I'm not the best baker. When I make chocolate chip cookies they always seem to spread out and become a massive tray of burnt mess and when I attempt cakes they… Continue reading Tried and tested: Chocolate birthday cake

You can also take it apart and use it as a hand mixer. So, really, the £59.99 price tag is… Continue reading Item of the day: Breville stand mixer
