Oats with Warm Cinnamon Apple, Puffed Quinoa & Cacao Nibs

Waking up on a cold October morning and knowing I need something warming and substantial to get my day started, the first thought is to make a pot of oats. Standing by the hob, sipping on a mug of tea that I’m hugging into myself and stirring the cinnamon through the almond milk. It smells like Autumn.

Skincare Favourites

I’ve been using clean, non-toxic, natural products for years and I have a regime that works well for me.
