Flowers in Mind, the beginning.

Over the last couple of weeks you may have noticed a few subtle hints at my latest little project, ‘Flowers in Mind’. A little background, four years ago, on coming out of hospital after starting my recovery from Anorexia, I began my journey into all things floral and I started studying floristry as a way…

Mini almond butter Easter eggs.

I was going to call this a recipe but I do not feel two ingredients and a few very simple steps counts as a recipe. Anyway, as you can probably tell by my very ahead thinking, I am most excited for Easter. Easter is undoubtedly my favourite time of the year and so, here I…
