Recipes // Vegan Butternut Squash Curry

Sweet Monday, Vegetarian curry, Vegan curry, Butternut squash, Chickpea, Lentil curry
Ingredients (serves 6)
1 butternut squash, chopped into 2cm cubes
5 cup mushrooms, quartered

1 tin chickpeas
1 tin chopped tomatoes
700ml vegetable stock
2tsp finely grated fresh ginger
2tsp ground coriander
2tsp ground cumin
2tsp garam masala
Handful of fresh coriander
Salt and pepper

It might look like a long list of ingredients but this tasty butternut squash, chickpea and lentil curry is super easy to make! (Believe me, I'm a terrible cook and even I can do it). 

Whilst spices can be expensive they're a fantastic investment. If you're into cooking already, or are enthusiastic to start broadening your recipes, you will need spices. And they most definitely won't sit in the back of the cupboard for years on end, like my Mum's do! Haha.

So to make this delicious (and vegan) curry you will need to do the following...

Creative ways to decorate your bedroom this spring and summer

The bedroom is a place where we can come home after a long day at work, unwind, relax, and have a good nights sleep. A lot of us tend to spend time most of our time in the bedroom rather than the living room, so it is important to decorate it in the most comfortable and welcoming way possible, creating a calm environment. Redesigning your bedroom doesn’t mean that you have to repaint your walls and buy all new furniture however. It can be done easily by a little bit of accessorising, moving things around and keeping it simple! If you are looking for some ideas and creative ways to redesign your bedroom, this guide will hopefully inspire you this spring and summer!

Lifestyle // Celebrating at Zizzi!

Zizzi, Zizzi Tuscan Mojito, Zizzi Good Times

What with moving to London last weekend, starting a new job this week and saying goodbye to my parents once again, I decided to treat them to dinner at Zizzi. 

Zizzi has always been a family favourite in restaurants for us so I knew they'd appreciate a thank you meal for all they've done for me over the last 6 weeks, since returning from my travels.
