Thela Cambridge

I’ve walked past Thela so many times, and it’s always stood out to me. Firstly, anything with “street food” on it tells me that it MUST be good. I don’t know what it is about the phrase but it seems to be plastered on everything these days. Secondly, I have a huge soft spot for authentic Indian cuisine, and I love me a thali. [Read more…]

Hidden Gem: Wyevale Garden Centre

Blogging and Instagram have been the two biggest things that keep me active and get me out of the house. Without these motivations, I would absolutely sit at home by myself all weekend. When I was 5, my teacher called my mum in and told her that there’s something wrong with me as I didn’t want to go and play with the other kids, all I wanted to do was read books. This is me.

My phone often complains to me that I have too many photos saved, and while, yes, a fair few of them are photos of my own food, the majority are screenshots of places I want to go visit. [Read more…]

How to Not Gain Weight While Bossing It

It can often happen. We’re bossing it in our careers, slamming it in the office, but at home we let everything go and find we’re putting on weight. All the control we have from 9-5 melts away and standards slip when it comes to making good life choices.

I have some top tips on how to not to pile on the pounds when you’re bringing home the bacon.

Plan your lunches ahead

It’s fine to have Sunday Funday – as long as that’s fun doing some batch cooking! Planning your meals ahead means that you can make balanced choices AND be organised (leaving more time for faffing in the morning!) [Read more…]

No 30 Cafe, Cambridge

Cambridge’s newest cafe, luckily, is just down the road from me and so I had no excuse in having a look as soon as it opened. Tucked away next to the towering Waterman Pub (also new – review coming soon!), No 30 is a pretty little cafe serving cake, tea and brunchy lunchy food.

The very small space was full to bursting; clientele being mainly young families when I went there, and I thought that it might die down in the following weeks, but every time I cycle past there, it’s still going strong. Just a short walk away from Stir, I wondered if it would be a hit, but it seems that Chesterton needed more tea!

I went for the gluten free cake and a pot of earl grey tea. The cake was lovely, and I did ask who made them; it seems it’s a mix of a local supplier and own-baked cakes. I’m very keen to promote local bakers through cafes, as there are so many great people about town, so I hope they are supporting a smaller business by going with one of these bakers as opposed to a mass producing cake place.

The whole place is decorated wonderfully, with even tiny details well thought out. If you like bustling places, this is one for you. I’m not sure what time to suggest to go to get a table though – maybe past toddler bedtime?? 😉

I’m so happy No 30 is right here and I can’t wait to go for brunch with the girls.
