Natural products to combat PCOS

In an effort to combat the symptoms of my PCOS I have been on an ongoing journey of attempting to cut out foods that no longer serve my body and condition (IE. gluten based foods, dairy, alcohol etc) in an effort to help improve and regulate my cycles. Most of the information I have been…

Gluten Free Victoria Sponge

For this past weekends family catch up with the in-laws we decided to bake a gluten free version of the classic Victoria Sponge (Victoria sandwich cake). It turned out to be a massive hit with all the men too which isn’t always an easy feat, so we are definitely going to be re-using this recipe…

Gluten Free Afternoon Tea – Part 1

This Sunday I had the delight of catching up with my best friend over an afternoon tea, which she had been so kind enough to gift me this Christmas. It had felt like forever since we had last seen each other (well forever for a 16 year friendship and two girls that classified themselves as…

Weymouth and the Tale of the Vintage Teapot

This Sunday we revisited our favourite place once again, but this time with an intention other than to see the coast. We had a mission, it was all a bit of a fluke in all honesty as we had no idea before last week when we would next be popping down for a visit to…

Gluten Free Bakewell Slices

Today has been wonderful, I’ve been tucked up at home with my wonderful mother in law, bonding over a love of baking. I am so over the moon that I have married into a family that appreciates good food with another woman who likes to cook and create in the same way I do! I’ve…

First date night of 2018

Last night we decided to make Monday feel better than usual by making it a date night, I really cannot remember the last time we went out  and did something ‘datey’, at least not for several months! We were certainly well overdue and it was really nice to be able to make a bit of…

The Lawrences hit Liverpool

This weekend we had the pleasure of visiting Liverpool! This was my first ever visit to the city, but Rich’s second on a count of his stag weekend taking place here. It was really sweet seeing him recall all of the places he had visited (only by chance – it took a giant chicken statue…

Sunday snippet in Sutton

With a serious case of the Monday Blues I thought I’d put up a post from a snippet of our weekend. I say a snippet, as a snippet is the exact amount of time we have spent together this weekend. Rich has worked another 7 day week and come 4pm Sunday was ‘our time’. Instead…

Trips to the Pumpkin Patch

For the last couple of weeks I have been somewhat of a hermit, tucked away in the home (not that I’m complaining) in full student mode…well ‘adult with full time job and financial responsibilities student’ mode. To be clear, that is the type of student who doesn’t get to sleep in till midday/late afternoon managing…
