LONDON’S BEST CHINESE TAKE OUT

Happy Sunday people! So in my house we have Chinese once a week, it like our thing. Some members of the fam even have it every other day (I won’t say any names, motherrr). There’s nothing better than a good Chinese take-out on a Sunday eve with a Netflix movie *sighs* We’ve dabbled in a lot of Chinese take-out places and I think we’ve officially found the best one London has to offer! If you’re anything like me when it comes to take-outs you want big portions, great service, freebies and more importantly great tasting and QUALITY food. Golden Noodle located in South East London has all that! Once you spend over £30.00 you even get a free meal (I did a cartwheel when they told me that, free food whoop whoop) Literally as I write this post my mother’s ordering from them again. What I got? Sweet and sour chicken hong kong style with fried rice, Sweet and sour pork ribs and prawn crackers. Prices? Most meals start from around £5! Apologies for the lack of images everybody …

HEALTHY BREAKFAST MEALS!

Morning guys! If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll know I’m starting #HealthyUnder20! I’ll explain, healthy under 20 is basically a bunch of healthy breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack recipes and ideas that you can have ready in 20 minutes and under! How perfect does that sound ey?  The recipes are all very well balanced including carbs, protein and important vitamins to make your diets less painful and more tolerable. I’m trying to get rid of my winter pouch and get a super flat crop top stomach for summer so I’ve been eating a little healthier and working out a bit more. I’m even starting pilates this week which I’m slightly nervous about as I’m not flexible in any type of way! Like, I’ve NEVER been able to touch my toes, that kind of unflexible! Anywhooo I thought I’d kick-start Healthy Under 20 with the most important meal of the day, Breakfast!  POPPY SEED BREAD, SCRAMBLED EGGS, AVOCADO & HAM INGREDIENTS For 2 people – Half a loaf of poppy seed bread – 8 …

I’m absolutely slumped right now *sigh* I went vegan food shopping for The Cookie Experience in Central London and oh my goodness it took the energy right out of me!

MEATLiquior FOR DINNER!

Bonjour! So  yesterday I woke up craving a melt in your mouth burger, you know one that you have to use two hands for and the cheese is melting and it’s shiny and perfect and you almost don’t want to eat it because you kind of  just want it to always be there for you. Ever felt like that? Well, this need was met yesterday! MEATLiquior has been around for a while now but I’ve never been before, partly because I always want to go on a Saturday and the is queue endless so I just turn back around. This time around I visited on a Sunday with Tobi (my sister) and it wasn’t busy at all.  Let me just say, this was the best burger I’ve had, seriously! And to top it off even the fries were amazing (I never thought I’d say that about fries because they’re always a bit mehhh!) It’s definitely a spot you have to try when in London! Plus they have ONION RINGS THE SIZE OF YOUR HEAD! What I …

COME BOROUGH MARKET WITH ME

Happy Tuesday you lovely beings! (I’m in a super good mood today if you can’t tell, it might be something to do with the sunshine). If you didn’t know, Borough Market is one of my favourite food markets! Reason number one being because  it’s got some great food, it’s also  very spacious, it has a seating area you can enjoy your food in and it’s somewhere you can go to get organic vegetables and hard to find veggies like chicory etcetera. They also have a demo kitchen on Thursdays I believe, in which chefs come and demonstrate recipes and let you eat the food after (yeah, that’s my favourite part!). I went to Borough market a few weeks ago and got to meet the lovely Celia Brooks she was an absolute gem and gave me loads of advice on cooking and getting into the food industry. Unfortunately I didn’t take pictures of this as it was very spontaneous but I popped down to Borough Market yesterday for some lunch and took loads of pictures for you. …

GET YOUR SUMMER GLOW

Greetings, greetings & greetings! *stretches*  Seriously, since doing my market stall on the weekends, Mondays and Tuesdays have been my hibernation period. It’s literally: Kitchen to sofa, sofa to kitchen, maybe brush teeth and back to the sofa again. Haha I’m just kidding of course I brush my teeth I’ve got pearly whites mate! Okay they’re not pearly white, I’m like 3 shades off (working on it ). Anywho, speaking on the subject of teeth lets talk about skin. Its got to be one of the most annoying things right? One minute you’re as smooth as a babies butt, the next you look like a bloody lychee! I’ve always felt it acceptable to have bad skin in the winter but as soon as summer starts approaching, you gotta get that glow girl! So here’s 5 foods and a few tips on how to get glowing clear skin: 1. WATER – It’s the most obvious one, everyone screams ‘Drink water, drink waterrrrrr’.
