It’s dinner party season!

Is there anything more exciting than planning a dinner party at home with your nearest and dearest, Come Dine With Me style?  Minus the excruciating scoring-in-secret part that is!    If the Channel 4 reality series is your go-to guilty pleasure as well (couples edition, of course!), then you’ll be just as excited as I am that dinner party season has arrived once again. So, when I was asked to create some dinner party themed content by build-to-rent operators Get

For the love of food.

“Hey babe, what do you want for dinner?”  In our house it’s Luis Cooks (as opposed to Andy – or Paco, as the photos might suggest!), so when it comes to the kitchen – and all the gadgets we have littering the countertop – it’s his domain. Having invested in the Ninja Foodi 8-in-1 Flip Mini Oven about a year ago, and seeing just how often we used it (and how much its saved us energy-bill-wise by forgoing use of the

Fab finds.

I’ve been sitting on a few fabulous things I’ve been sent from various brands and PRs recently. I was trying to work out the best way to share these new pieces here on the blog and figured that a new occasional series might be in order, which I’m cleverly (read: not feeling so imaginative right now..) calling: Fab Finds.   So, here are five Fabulous Finds currently holding their own in the Fab Flat: Half Hitch gin Gin has long
