Three Hot Brunch Spots In London For Pancakes And More…

brunch london lifestyle

I’ve got a bit of a food, lifestyle, style post for you today. I’m a huge foodie and love discovering new places to eat out. I’m someone who gets overly excited about a menu and the design of the plates and mugs in a restaurant. I am also finding that places in London are now creating incredible menus for health conscious foodies as well as their fellow not so health conscious partners, friends, dads and I feel like a brunch has something for everyone…

A Healthy Day With My Bestie

healthy day with me and my bestie PANDORA ESSENCE LOTTIE MURPHY

I feel incredibly lucky to have the most unique inspiring best friends. I only have a handful but they really are like my family and my biggest inspiration. They are all incredible little entrepreneurs carving out their careers to be able to do what they love doing every single day, not just at weekends! This means that Friday working from coffee shop days can turn into healthy fun days with my bestie, Natalie Glaze. This is my second and final post inspired by PANDORA’s ESSENCE range to celebrate my friends and their unique traits and what better way to celebrate Natalie, my fellow blogger babe then by blogging about our healthy day together! There’s nothing better than putting the world right with this one over a matcha latte and bar of dark chocolate (this happens quite often.)  

The ESSENCE Of Her

the essence of her PANDORA post

Becoming an adult is pretty scary and I feel like life hits you smack in the face in your twenties, all of a sudden you have thousands of responsibilities. We all deal with pressure to varied degrees and I do love this pressure; having busy schedule, a booming inbox and constant burning goals inside me. I have always wanted to work for myself and be incredibly independent and this is completely down to my superwoman mum. This is a really special post for me and yes I know Mother’s Day has been and gone but I just want to celebrate my mum in this post because without her, my world wouldn’t go round as smoothly it does and I probably wouldn’t have a drawer full of spare birthday cards ready to send. I was really inspired by PANDORA’s ESSENCE range which is all about celebrating the values you appreciate in the people you are closest too, relationships that mean so much to you…

Healthy Oaty Eggy Pancakes

Some days I need something a little bit more hearty than my usual breakfast smoothie or porridge and usually on a Saturday morning I have more time to experiment. I love pancakes and they are so easy to make without tons of sugar, flour and butter.

These pancakes are guilt free and very simple, I literally just used what I had left over in my kitchen as Saturday is ‘food shopping’ day! They can also be made gluten free if you use gluten free porridge oats. I used a combination of wholegrain rolled oats and gluten free porridge oats. There was no reason for this apart from the fact that I only had 20g of rolled oats left but the combining textures of the oats worked really well.
