Bacon Jam. Not a new idea to me by any means, but I have to admit I never really found myself clamouring to try it. I’m not big on bacon you see (yes my kind does exist) but I do enjoy it occasionally. When these cute little bottles of Baldo’s Bacon Jam fell into my …

Quaker Oats 1 - Why it's a-okay to start the day with a bowl of Quaker Oats

With the fast-paced lifestyle everyone’s living these days, it’s no longer uncommon to hear the words ‘I skip breakfast’ being uttered.

My mother is on a grand holiday at the moment, and all her pictures are giving me a fit of wanderlust. I get this feeling quite often, but today it’s especially bothersome.

Hull Stern Me 1 - A heavy case of wanderlust + Hull & Stern Adventure bag giveaway!

Delimondo 1 - Adding pizzaz to a classic pasta with Delimondo Corned Beef

We can always manage to find interesting ways to spice up old and familiar things. Life is made up of 80% mundane and 20% extra-special events. Well, unless you are part of that tiny minority who gets to live life in adventure mode everyday. But the thing is, how do we define mundane anyway? Isn’t …
