Brunch at Salt Cafe

I LOVE brunch. In fact, such is my predisposition for food that’s not quite breakfast, not quite lunch, consuming more of it made it into my goals for 2018. Yip, this girl loves her eggs. Why is it that I love brunch so much? Firstly, my Monday to Friday breakfast is normally consumed at my desk, so is limited to yoghurt, fruit, porridge or a snack bar. There’s nothing wrong with any of those things, but let’s face it, nobody is going to choose any of those options versus a warmed croissant or eggs royale. If you would, it’s probably...

January 2018 finds

It’s mid-way through January, which can only mean one thing: it’s time for a monthly finds post. I’ve come across a few noteworthy things since my last post, meaning there are lots of new things I recommend adding to your eating/drinking/viewing regime. Enjoy! 1. The Primal Pantry Paleo bars – I’m always on the lookout for healthy snacks and Primal Pantry bars tick all of the boxes. The fact that they are paleo approved is another plus point. There is a variety of flavours, but my personal favourite is the raw almond and cashew variety. Delish. 2. The Crown –...

Hello, 2018

It feels like forever since I wrote a blog post. In reality, I last posted in October, so a lifetime in blogging terms but in actual terms, it’s not that long, I suppose. I can attribute my hiatus to a multitude of things, more commonly referred to as life. Major home renovations combined with a busy job and various other intermissions resulted in a feeling akin to the later half of 2017 disappearing in a puff of smoke. In fact, if I’m honest, I feel like 2017 went by quicker than ever. The saying, ‘time flies’ has never felt truer. So here...

October 2017 finds

/
You would think kitchen renovations would keep me from new discoveries, but no. In fact, surfing the web for some beauty in the world while my real life is covered in dust has kept me going. So with that, here are a few of the best things I’ve stumbled across this month: 1. As you know I’ve been renovating for a while and in my quest for furniture I discovered The Sofa & Chair Company. One word; wow. This company has the most beautiful luxury furniture, with everything from luxury rugs to beds, dining tables, lighting, artwork and more. Their...

My favourite online wine merchants

The clue is in the name; wine and olives. And let’s face it, I wouldn’t have named my blog after something I didn’t love. There’s so many reasons I enjoy wine. My passion for food is one, and the other is the social aspect. Nothing much beats sharing some good wine over a nice meal with friends. It’s good for the soul. We have a sociable house and when people come round, I like to make sure I’m prepared. Much like I do my grocery shopping online, I also buy my wine on line. And I’m not alone. It turns...

Best foot forward

You know that girl who would never be seen dead without a pair of heels? That was me; the operative word being ‘was’. But, gone are the days of tottering around Edinburgh’s hazardous cobbled streets. Gone is the unmistakeable throb in the ball of my foot, which was never worth the four extra inches it gave me in height. I’ve seen the light and I’m not turning back, and that light, my friends, comes in the form of the humble trainer. I sort of feel lucky that come the time I was ready to throw my heels on the fire,...
