Brixton Brunch



So, in my ever-growing mission to discover ALL of the best places for eating in London me and the boyfriend headed to Brixton this weekend for a sunday brunch and a wander. I love a wander and if you may have noticed, I love food. SO there was only one place to head in Brixton and that was to Brixton Village. Famed for it's array of restaurants, delis and cafes, along with a myriad of adorable vintage and craft shops this little haven was the perfect place to while away a Sunday afternoon.

Common People



So now I'm a working girl I have an almost pathological desire to 'not waste my weekends'. Whereas at uni I'd happily veg out and watch films all weekend (in between drinking my own weight in rum and coke) now I've become really, really bad at being idle. London doesn't help this as there is so much to do here that it's impossible to get bored so I'm constantly planning my next weekend outing. My Time Out App is my best friend and I keep a keen eye in 'what's on' so I know where to explore next. If there's one thing living in London has done to me it's giving me an almost violent strain of FOMO.

Gluten Free and Paleo Pancakes

Gluten free cooking, it's all the rage now and looks to be a trend that will stick with us for a while. Although I'm not usually one to follow food trends I am currently trying to refine my diet to be a bit cleaner and healthier as part of a continued weightloss/health journey. Enter gluten free/paleo. I'll do a more in-depth post on what diet I follow and the ins and outs of Paleo, Primal, Keto, Low-carb High-fat etc. later but for now I am here to provide you with deliciously fluffy and grain free pancakes.
