One More Off The List!

YAY!

I’m ticking off another of my 101 in 1001 by visiting Portugal for the first time and it’s gorgeous!

While spending some time with my boyfriend and his family, I’m getting some much needed sun time in a villa near by Carvoeiro and it’s such a lovely town.

Arriving on Sunday I’ve done plenty of walking, sunning, eating tapas and definitely consuming my body weight in rosรจ wine (oops) 

The temperature is getting higher each day and my skin getting closer and closer to looking like Larry the Lobster despite plenty of factor 30 + 50 sun creams going on. 

Once I get back home I may do a “5 things you must do in Carvoeiro” post companied with the outfits I wore to each activity. But for now, I’m going to not be blogging and enjoy the rest of my holiday – see ya Sunday, England!

What To Do On A Cold April Day?

It’s been a freezing cold Wednesday in Northumberland and I, for one, did not want to leave the warmth of home. So what did I do? 

Sleep in and miss breakfast (oops) so I abandoned all chances of making my afternoon gym class due to lack of food and energy and decided to do some baking!

Naturally – my decision to bake was very spur of the moment, so I definitely hadn’t got the puff pastry out of the freezer to defrost (another oops).

As Mary Berry would shudder in shame, I did a quick defrost in the microwave. I am very much a lazy baker so didn’t want to do anything complicated with my pastry. So I quickly grated some cheese and rolled it into the pastry to make some easy cheese twists!

I did make a little bit of an effort by cutting up some bacon to wrap around a few of my twists! Thankfully they came out crisp, fluffy and cheesy!!

Using a handful of my cheese twists, a chopping board and a cup to attempt to make my cheese twists look as instagrammable as possible

The cheese twists with bacon were BY FAR my favourite! The saltiness from the bacon added so much more flavour to the twists. 

I love baking but I think I’m going to have to venture into some healthier alternatives as I get bikini body ready for my holiday at the end of May!
