Yves Saint Laurent Jardin Majorelle, Marrakech

Our trip to Morocco feels as if it were months ago instead of only a few weekends, the hazy heat of the sun is a distant memory as we are plunged into near sub zero temperatures here in the UK. 

I wanted to give you a closer look at one of my favourite places we explored in Marrakech; Jardin Majorelle, the home and final resting place of Yves Saint Laurent. The colours were vibrant and beautiful, plants lush and complimenting the colour palette to perfection and the history of the place spoke loud for all to hear. Take a step into YSL's garden and escape...

Getting Cosy this Winter

One of my favourite things about winter is that pyjamas suddenly become a completely valid outfit choice. As soon as the nights draw in and the weather gets colder, my excessive pyjama collection (I'm even wearing a new set as I write this, I have a problem) comes out to play along with all of the entirely necessary accessories like socks and slippers. Basically, I'm an old lady at heart and I love it!

48 Hours in Marrakech

Marrakech has always been on my list of cities I'd love to visit, but for one reason or another, I've never ventured to that part of the world. That was, until a couple of weeks ago when I was invited to explore Marrakech with the Moroccan Tourist Board along with Mat, Kit and Hannah.

I expected to love Marrakech but I wasn't quite prepared for quite how much I would fall head over heels in love with the city. The sights, sounds, smells and general atmosphere had me as soon as I stepped off the plane and as we explored further, I fell further.

We spent a full 48 hours snapping, exploring, eating and drinking our way through Marrakech so I thought I'd take you along for the adventure. If you get the chance to venture to Marrakech, you should hop on a plane as soon as you can! Take a look at my guide below to make the most of your trip...

Easy Peasy Sausage Rolls Recipe

Sausage rolls are one of my signature dishes, sometimes I put in a ridiculous amount of effort and make puff pastry from scratch and sometimes I rustle up a batch in under half an hour, depending on how I feel!

This is the easy peasy version, absolutely perfect for making for Christmas parties or bake sales even if you're pushed for time. I've been super lazy recently and opted for this recipe more often than not, I've also only managed to get as far as my local supermarket for all my ingredients and home electricals... I told you it was easy peasy!

All I Want For Christmas Is...

I've spent the last few days in Marrakech completely ignoring the fact that Christmas is getting ever closer (it's less than 50 days away now) but as soon as we landed back in the UK, we were plunged back into the land of glitter, sparkles, Christmas ads and gift sets.

But now it's time to get back into the swing of the festive season with my first Christmas gift edit!
