From the blog...
After the longest summer in history, Autumn is finally upon us. And the season of boots, and knitwear, and coats, of hot chocolates, and pumpkin pies and cosy fires, beckons. And I don’t know about you but this initial shift in season throws me sartorially, every. single. time. I find myself in quite a happy... Read more »Read this post
First things first. If you’re on any sort of health kick/ sugar free diet/ trying to be good, then sorry but it might just be best to back away from the screen slowly and forget you ever saw these brownies. Because yes, they taste UNBELIEVABLY good, but also yes, there is no part of them... Read more »Read this post
We didn’t manage a traditional summer holiday this year. You know, the type that your hairdresser asks you about the minute you get in the chair.

A lifestyle blogWith honesty at its core
What started as an online diary back in 2009 (!), this lifestyle blog has developed into honest space to document my daily life and loves, from fashion to food to family. With a penchant for over sharing and writing from the heart, I treat my blog like chatting to old friends and honesty is at its core. Here you’ll find style (both my wardrobe and my home), recipes, travel adventures and tales from the frontline of parenting. In short; musings from my everyday life, which I hope can inspire yours…read the blog

The Baking Club
Love of a good slice of cake (either baking it or eating it)? Who doesn’t right? The Flaky Bakers Club was started as a way to find and connect fellow cake lovers and create a community of baking enthusiasts of all levels. A friendly cake community, open to everyone and aimed at those of us who have a passion for baking but admittedly aren’t always Pinterest perfect. With a monthly theme, a friendly gang of bakers ready to discuss biscuit vs cake, and lots of support, we celebrate the fails as much as the wins. Whether you want to sign up and share your bakes or simply get some recipe inspiration, take a browse…Join the Club
October's Baking Club Theme
Seeing as it’s our first bake after a LONG break and you might be as rusty as me (!), I thought we’d ease ourselves in gently with something everyone can easily join in with. This month it’s all about the classics – those iconic bakes that everyone knows and you can whip up without even looking at a recipe. Think Victoria Sponge, your favourite shortbread, a classic crumble or the pancakes you make every weekend. Or maybe there’s something else that is a classic to you?
Happy Baking and can’t wait to see what you all come up with!
