My Ultimate Cookie Recipe

There hasn't been a recipe in a while, has there?
Don't get me wrong; it's not like I haven't raided my baking cabinet dry recently, just more the fact that when I have baked, it's been my go-to recipes instead of experimenting. (I'm talking the home comforts of Banana Breads, Gin & Tonic Cake & Brownies...)

So to kick start my baking come back, I thought I'd give you something classic. Something you can mix & match & chuck whatever the heck your favourite chocolate is into.

Hello.... It's Me!

Hello, hello...

I've typed this post out so many times. 
I've deleted, crossed out, rewritten, pondered, stared out of this train window endlessly & basically downed my Starbucks (I usually hate their coffee, but by George I can't cope without a cup recently- urgh), before actually finishing this sentence. 
It's been a while, hasn't it?


I'm currently sat on a train, speeding back to London in the rain from an Easter break, feeling a bit like I'm writing to a pen pal who I've neglected.... Or i'm in some 90's movie where the star gazes out of the window to power ballads. 
But heck, I'm no Hollywood star. (Hahaha imagine!?)

I'm just a 23 year old who has been slumped under with the craziness of work and life so that 'taking a breather' in my world has involved either drinking a whole bottle of gin & dancing the night away or falling asleep on the sofa by 9pm. Wild, wild times. 

So even though I've hated it, blogging has just had to take a back seat amidst all the work travelling, conferences & to be honest, sh*t storm & predictability that is life. 

So what has happened with me in the last few months?

Well, I've been to Las Vegas....

Which was the craziest week 'for work' and left me with a broken toe.

I went Skiing in Morzine...

Which was undeniably brilliant, except for the lack of snow. 

I have moved into a new flat with my two oldest friends...

Which has utterly drained my bank balance.

I've turned 23 ....

Which has left me freaking out a bit as to 'how old I am' & how screwed I am now, and probably in a few years time to even contemplate the London housing market. 

I am currently training for my first half marathon that is in two weeks (God help me)...

Which has meant partying/dates/fun things that all involve alcohol is a no. (I miss gin- a lot). 

So yeah, it's been a busy 2017 so far (let alone taking into account all the niggly high's and lows' in between).

And that's it I guess, whilst I use my Instagram religiously, the reason for this space in my life isn't like 'big blogger's' for income or work- it's a bit of a release. 
A little slice of the internet to make me remember that yeah, sh*t can be hitting the fan left right & centre in your life, but regardless, the need to appreciate the little & fun things that make it all worthwhile.

In a nutshell.... I'm back.
