DIY Fashion – Simple Skirt Design, great for Spring/Summer

It’s been a while since I posted anything on DIY Fashion. I think the colder months sent me into clothing hibernation where all I wanted was to wrap up in my big jumper and cocoon myself in my duvet. But the sun is shining and it’s getting close to the time to start getting the legs and shoulders back out there and I just loved the print on this DIY skirt design by Extra Petite.   I wouldn’t normally visit sites called extra petite as I’m far from petite, but what I like about DIY fashion is that you can […]

It is estimated that 1 in 5 Children in the US struggle with hunger. That’s a crazy number, it equates to around 16 million children.

Quick & Easy Raw Mint Chocolate Oat Bars

I had a recipe in mind for dinner last night which needed a bunch of fresh mint and I always find that I tend to use a little of my herbs and then not need them again for a while, which is why I tend to favour dried herbs, but in this instance, the mint was just too beautiful looking & smelling that I had to go fresh. So here I was with a BIG bunch of mint and wanting to do something nice for a treat (well it is the weekend after all!) and everyone knows that mint chocolate […]

Very Simple Mushroom & Lentil Dal with Spiced Basmati Rice
