Sunday Pleasures: Healthy Carrot Muffins

12540543_10153437116652198_4239283496825013182_nA few days ago I saw this amazing carrot muffin recipe and I decided I had to try it. These muffins taste incredibly good even though they have no sugar in them (just a little bit sprinkled on top)! They’re made with carrots and honey and you can easily eat 4 in a row (not that I did that…).

I used regular wholemeal flower as opposed to white wholemeal flower and honey as opposed to maple syrup so the muffins turned out a lot browner than the ones in Cookie & Kate. They still tasted really good though so whichever you try, you will love it! This recipe takes 15mins to prepare and about 30mins to cook.

Why you don’t have to have it all figured out

girlcigarette2At the beginning of the year we all have the urge to make changes. Most of us start thinking about the past year, what we’ve achieved and where we are in life. I know I do that quite a lot. I also know some people have that constant fear of failing and not being where they thought they would be. A lot of people compare themselves to others and wonder why they don’t have it all figured out.

SPOLER ALERT: You don’t have to have it all figured out, and here’s why:

My 8 favourite Instagram accounts of 2015

Instagram I’m an Instagram addict.

Although I use other forms of social media, Instagram is by far my favourite. In fact it’s the first app I check every morning and the last I check before going to bed. I’m not an Instagram pro and I don’t have a theme (I know it’s become quite trendy to have a theme on Instagram like all whiter photos, etc.) but I love it.

I follow a lot of accounts (when I say a lot, I mean A LOT) for different reasons. All of them inspire me in some way: some of them give me travel inspiration, some of them give me recipe ideas and some of them are just plain pretty. As 2015 has come to an end, I thought it would be good to share with you the ones I visited religiously during 2015. Trust me, some of these will make your day.

So, in no particular order, these were my favourite Instagram accounts of 2015:

Greenberry Cafe, London

greeberrycafe1Yesterday I decided to spend the day in London and try out a cafe I’ve heard very good things about – the Greenberry Cafe, right in the heart of Primrose hill. I have to say I wasn’t disappointed and even though we had to walk for what seemed like an eternity in the rain (it was more like 15 minutes but it seemed like so much more I swear) it was worth it.

First things first, when we got to London the sun was shining and (of course) we couldn’t resist taking some cliche pictures, even though I’ve been to London a billion times. London is always London though and you know how much I love photos.
