Binge-worthy TV shows

2nd April 2020

With extra time on our hands, everyone and their Mum is looking for TV, film and book recommendations. Myself included.

I was kindly invited to have afternoon tea at the Double Bubble Tea House with my Mum. While this was gifted, I had no obligation to write a blog post, just take photos to share on social media. As bubble tea novices, we asked Klara and Karen for their tea recommendations. Mum had the mint […]

Lumps on bumps that we don’t talk about

9th January 2020

Today my peaches, we’re going to chat about those lumps on bumps/humps that we don’t really talk about.
