Pairing Premier Estates Wine With my Favourite Takeaways

I’m not a big wine drinker. A big vodka/gin/beer drinker, yes. Wine, not so much. Oh, apart from when I take part in wine tasting classes, or occasionally, if it’s fizzy wine. Oh, and apart from at Christmas. But generally speaking … it’s never been a bit of me....

Bucket List Chat

I’m going away soon, to Croatia, and I am SO excited, I think I’m going to literally burst. I’m going to be writing a dedicated post about why I’m going (and basically telling any stranger I make contact with in the next week), who I’m going with and what I’m...

Let’s Talk Digestive Health

Giving up (Caffeinated) Coffee for Lent – Did I Do It?

What Really Happens on a Breeze Network Leadership Course?

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I was asked by British Cycling to become a Breeze Champion, which is a network to encourage women back into cycling. As part of that, I had to take part in a Leadership Course, so that I could be qualified to take groups of women out on...
