While pregnant with my first daughter I spent many hours thinking about what type of mother I wanted to be. Would I obsess over the little things? Or would I let them be free to make their own mistakes? Would people think I had my life together? Or judge me for being a younger mum? […]

Feta Saganaki Recipe

Whenever I come home from holiday there is always one dish from my time away I miss the most. From our recent trip to Kos it has certainly been the Feta Saganaki I had up in the mountains in Zia.

I Want To Be A Writer, But I’m Just A Girl Who Writes.

I Want To Be A Writer
