Fairtrade Coffee

Fairtrade Coffee

I’ve decided that I’m going to buy only fairtrade coffee a few months ago. It’s more expensive, but it’s not a necessity (despite being addicted to coffee and drinking coffee a few times a day). There is no justification, for me, not to buy fairtrade. Luckily there are plenty of options on the market, both […]

Lost Castles

Lost Castles

Lost Castles, for the first time, involved all the boroughs of Merseyside. Hundreds of volunteers worked with the French artist Olivier Grossetȇte to create impressive structures out of cardboard. The structures represented medieval castles or historical important buildings. Don’t miss their website. These are the ones we saw. We didn’t get to Wirral because it […]

Comana Monastery, near Bucharest

Comana Monastery is only an hour away from Bucharest (or up to two if is heavy traffic). The monastery has an English website, if you fancy a read: manastireacomana.

TMLewin

I don’t talk much about men’s fashion, but last time I’ve been with my husband at Metquarter to get a couple more TMLewin shirts, I though I should write about it on the blog. Have a look on TMLewin’s website and on metquarter for more details. I like their shirts too, if you remember my […]

My husband and I like Pizza Hut, having found memories from Romania. We’ve also been in Pizza Hut in Liverpool, but I didn’t blog about it. So, imagine how excited I was to be asked if I want to review their new Epic pizza*. See more on their website. I got a gift voucher in […]

Mary Berry's tips & tricks

Mary Berry’s tips & tricks

Mary Berry’s tips & tricks are a list of tips I’ve read in her book, Mary’s household tips & tricks. Your guide to happiness in the home. The book was published last year by Penguin Random House UK. I wanted to borrow it from the library. Soon after publishing it was reserved, and I forgot […]

July

July Roundup

We’ve had a few weeks of intense heat, so I definitely must mention them in this July Roundup. I’m not too keen on hot weather and tanning, so I’ve used huge amounts of SPF 50 sunscreen these days. The heat made us look for alternative activities and we’ve been kayaking a lot. Besides this, I’ve […]

Michael Eden was born in 1955, in Blackburn, Lancashire. He trained as a potter, before completing an MPhil at Royal Collefe of Art. Using 3D modelling and printing, […]
