Valentines Day: The biggest pile of mush everrrrr – or a diarised date every year to appreciate the loved ones around you. However you look at it, it’s going to happen whether you like it or not! Those big red hearts plastered over every store window aren’t going anywhere fast…

I’ve been single and in relationships on various Valentines Days over the years, but one thing I noticed on my single ones, was not knowing what to do with myself on February 14th! With every single TV channel screening some lovey-dovey movie, dating programme or something red and covered in hearts, you go to switch on the radio and the “100 Greatest Love Songs” are playing Killing Me Softly, and you find yourself sitting there spoon-deep in Ben & Jerry’s like WOW – I just LOVE being single!

Brunch spot #2: Minnow

It’s been a little while since I recommended a new brunch spot for you to check out, and now I’ve moved into my new flat (..sorry for the radio silence guys!)  I thought it was a perfect time to share with you my new local, Minnow.

It’s just too cute for words! Continue reading “Brunch spot #2: Minnow”

Some may think pssshttt what’s she making a deal about, it’s easy peasy! But being half Greek-Cypriot, where meat has always come as pretty standard with every meal in our household, this was definitely a challenge! Continue reading “The month I turned vegetarian…”

Water, protein powder, shake it up, drink. Water, protein powder, shake it up, drink. Water, protein powder, shake it up, drink… ever get bored of the same old cycle? I keep getting asked what I eat/drink post-workout and my choice of protein powder etc so thought I’d share with you my favourite post-workout routine.

It really depends on what time you choose to do your workout to be honest. If you’re up early in the morning working out before breakfast, it really makes so much more sense to eat a protein-rich breakfast, rather than just downing a protein shake on-the-go. Don’t forget to include some healthy fats too though, they’re not the enemy! Continue reading “Choco banana shakin’”
