The perfect dinner with Boursin

It's not often that I give a recipe post a go on here - mainly because I'm a) not the best cook and b) I'm more of a 'quick cook time and eat it!' kinda gal when I get in from work. But, when there's cheese involved I'm all for creating a yummy recipe that I've never had before - whilst it's not a revolutionary  new recipe, it's still one that took me a while to get to grips with (wrapping parma ham around chicken, who new it would be so hard?) oh and it includes delicious Boursin cheese, of course! So, if you fancy picking yourself up some Boursin and creating a cheesy chicken wrapped in parma ham with new potatoes and tomatoes then keep reading!

The Smart Casual

'Jeans and a top' is my classic look, not only on a day-to-day basis but also when I'm going out out but then it changes to 'jeans and a nice top'. Sometimes it's nice to have a little change up and go for a different style/ cut/ colour of jean and a top you wouldn't have necessarily normally looked twice at. Who would have thought that at 26 (nearly 27) I would own and love my own pair of cream jeans...

The Perfect Picnic with Boursin

England has been lapping up some seriously glorious sunshine in recent weeks and what better way to celebrate the heat than with a yummy picnic? My friend Verity and I headed out to our local park carrying with us a gorgeous hamper filled to the brim with delicious treats (and some vino, of course) to pitch up and have a good old-fashioned picnic and catch up...before Love Island started, obviously...

Sod's law that as I go to schedule a post that it's been the worst week for us weather-wise! Nevertheless, the sun has to come back to us at some point, am I right? And this is just the perfect look to take you from work to drinks, a day out with friends or if you're heading out on a shopping trip (who isn't?) and need something to slip on and off.

Why I (kinda) went on a spending ban...again

So it got to that point (once again) in the year where I had that sudden realisation that I'd spent far too much already on clothes, shoes, bags etc - with not a lot to show for it. With this, I decided to go on another spending ban (take a look at my previous ban I wrote about a year ago here) and challenged myself to go a whole month without spending a single penny frivolously. In my last ban I kept a diary but I decided this time I would explain more about why I went on a spending ban, whether it made a difference to my savings and if I even missed having mountains of new clothes every month...
