Favourite Brunch and Coffee Spots

My absolute favourite thing to do is go for out for coffee or brunch at a cute little cafe. I love to explore all the different cafes and coffee stops near me with my friends and family or just by myself. Sitting down, having a catch up and eating some delicious food is such a good way to spend quality time (well that's what I think). Even if I'm on my own I can get some much needed work done on my laptop or just sit and take in my surroundings.

Here I have complied some of my favourite places, the perfect places to go for a wee coffee or brunch and of course it's always a great photo opportunity! I am a sucker for cute presentation and I literally take photos of everything I eat, whoops.... But I honestly could not care. It makes me happy and as I've said a million times on this blog, that is all that really matters.  

Little Things Cafe

This cafe has the cosiest setting. I visited here on my own and just sat with my laptop and got some work done, it was lovely. Here I had the Soup of the day which was Red pepper and Tomato which came with a side of granary bread and butter, I also tried the Mango blast smoothie which was amazing! This was a nice alternative as I often go for a coffee if I'm out but this was a great refresh and can only imagine this would be lovely in summer! There brunch menu also looked amazing which included various versions of Avocado toast which I MUST go back and try!
The cafe also sells these amazing cupcakes by @bakedbylisa. They had so many amazing and unique combinations. I took home with me the Vegan oreo and Lotus biscoff cupcakes which I loved! I also thought this was a really good idea they had the option to take away the cupcakes in these cute containers! Definitely worth checking out this cafe for their cupcakes!!

Flame Tree Cafe

This cafe has always been my favourite place since I was a young. Going with my friends for one of there signature Rainbow Bagels was a usual date for us. Of course, one of the reasons was to get take cute photos of our food (well for me it was anyway....) Even though I love taking a good Instagram whilst I'm here, the food is always super tasty too! Here pictured is the Rainbow Bagel with a side of cream cheese with a Berry Smoothie and the Chicken pesto mayo salad plate with a Blue Latte which are both my favourites! This cafe serves everything from coffee and a cake to a Rainbow bagel BLT. With plenty vegan and gluten free options also available. So if your looking for a cute cafe for lunch and a chat then I would highly recommend taking a trip, I promise you won't be disappointed! Plus who doesn't love a trip to a aesthetically pleasing cafe? 

The West House

This restaurant in town is always a go to off mine for a lunch or breakfast date. There breakfast menu has something to offer for everyone including sweet waffles, omelettes and poached eggs in toast in many variations! Here pictured I have the Nutella and banana waffles and pancakes, which is just the perfect sweet breakfast treat! Me and my friends always like to meet up here for a good catch up. They also do a lunch deal where you can have a sandwich or 1/2 pizza with either soup or potato wedges - which is just the perfect lunch to have with friends and also does not break the bank. The dishes served here also are always perfectly presented and again I always have to take a photo of my meal!! The west house also has a great night time atmosphere as it transitions from the quaint restaurant to this classy bar. They have different events and DJ's attending on the weekends and I would highly recommend a visit for a drink or two should you be in the area. 
Pacamara Food & Drink

Pacamara is known for its amazing breakfast options. Here pictured is the brioche french toast with added bacon, this is my go to order every time along with a Chai Latte and it never fails to impress! They also serve a range of cooked breakfasts that are fully customisable so you can pick exactly what you want including avocado and black pudding. Also with your breakfast you receive a complimentary glass of fresh orange which I think is a lovely addition. Its a real treat coming here and not one I do all the time, but is always an great experience when I do. Pacamara also offers a main food menu which myself I have never tried before but hope to go for a lunch date very soon and I do not think it will disappoint. 

Thankyou so much if you took the time to read, it means so much!

I hope you found so inspiration to take time out your week to meet up with friends or treat yourself!

Routine in Isolation

As we all know this is a really weird time to be alive - all this uncertainty is causing all of us some added stress. I am finding it myself so hard to keep in a healthy routine when I feel so restricted in what I can do. Keeping myself busy is something I always struggle with and can become really flustered if I feel I have not been productive enough on a particular day.

So in this post I am going to be sharing some tips that I will be using to try and keep myself in a healthy routine.

1. Follow your class/work schedule - Yes this sounds awfully simple and one in which you are probably trying to do. But it is so important. For me in my university career I have classes and work I need to be doing daily, therefore I am trying to follow these class timetables even when I'm not on campus. For example on a Monday morning I have my nutrition class therefore at that time at home I will look over my lecturers and do my work for that class. This is so important to ensure you don't end…
